Set in a future dystopian England, where a small amount of the population – deemed The Undying and banished to the fringes of society – has stopped ageing, The Undying Tower introduces us to Sadie, a sixteen-year-old who suddenly finds herself separated from her ailing father and life as she knows it.
When the world discovered that a small percentage of the population stopped aging, it tore itself apart. Fifty years later, The Avalonia Zone is one of the only civilisations left. A place where healthcare is restricted; religion is banned; hangings are televised; and the terrorist group the Alchemists fight for Undying rights.
Sadie cares for her father and yearns for a heart transplant for him. But after she is injured in a terrorist attack and a blood test reveals her to be one of the Undying, she and her family are no longer eligible for medical treatment. The government give Sadie an ultimatum: find the Alchemist leak inside the Tower, the highest security Undying prison in the country, and her father can have his heart transplant.
As Sadie probes deeper into what she always considered a criminal underworld, she begins to realise that there is more to the Undying than is reported on the news. And when she discovers the Tower’s darkest secret, will she risk everything to save the Undying, or will she abandon them to save her father?
The Undying Tower is the first in a trilogy. Opposite is a holding cover, and I'm excited to reveal the final cover to you soon! Watch this space.
The Undying Tower will be published in 2021 in eBook and paperback.
