‘An absolutely fantastic and thoroughly enjoyable beginning to what I believe will be a great trilogy... Ceri A. Lowe is a great author and has done a brilliant job of creating yet another dystopian society that we can all fall in love with. I highly recommend this book.’ 5/5 A Bibliophile’s Journey

What if the end of the world was just the beginning?

Alice Davenport awakens from a fever to find her mother gone and the city she lives in ravaged by storms – with few survivors.

When Alice is finally rescued, she is taken to a huge underground bunker owned by the mysterious Paradigm Industries. As the storms worsen, the hatches close.

87 years later, amidst the ruins of London, the survivors of the Storms have reinvented society. The Model maintains a perfect balance – with inhabitants routinely frozen until they are needed by the Industry.

Fifteen-year-old Carter Warren knows his time has come. Awoken from the catacombs as a contender for the role of Controller General, it is his destiny to succeed – where his parents failed.

But Carter soon discovers that the world has changed, in ways that make him begin to question everything that he believes in. As Carter is forced to fight for those he loves and even for his life, it seems that the key to the future lies in the secrets of the past...

Set in a post-apocalyptic London and told from both Alice and Carter’s point of view, Paradigm is a dark, intelligent and compelling read. An exciting new dystopian series not to be missed.

What people are saying about Paradigm...

‘Paradigm is a fast-paced, thrilling science fiction story that you definitely want to add to your summer reading list.’ 4/5 Bookbinger.com

‘I would recommend this book to those who want more of an adventurous and darker dystopian that is not reliant on romance to push the plot forward; especially Alice’s story, which left me wanting to read for hours more.’ 4/5 Rainy Day Reads

‘Paradigm is a very good novel and is a strong starting point for the series... the fact that it shows the establishment of a dystopia alongside its gradual decay sets it apart from the current market of The Hunger Games clones. Arkham Reviews

‘This book took my breath away! Lowe takes elements from some of the best dystopian fiction and creates an entirely new, highly believable story that seems a little too real for comfort.’ Cayocosta Reviews

I really, really enjoyed Paradigm. I initially thought it would be just like every other dystopian fiction out there right now, but I feel like Ceri Lowe raised the bar with this one. I normally despise books that come from two different perspectives - but this one was different. It's smart. It's well written. It's an easy read that doesn't feel like cotton candy. It was interesting to see a dystopian from not only the "rebel" side but also to see it from the side of someone who created the strict government in the first place. It gives you an honest perspective of why this government was a necessity to begin with - but why it may not be working 87 years later. In a year (or couple of years) where dystopian books are a dime a dozen, this is one of the books that stands out. It is a great mix of Legend by Marie Lu and Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer. I highly recommend this book to anyone who truly enjoys the dystopian genre, but is looking for something more. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for the next two books in the series.’ 5/5 Southern Comfort Across the Deep Blue Sea
