Product description

Product Description

Enter the World of the Unregistered.

Living the ideal life is a human right, unless you’re unregistered.

Living under the watchful eye of the Metrics Worldwide Government has its perks. Citizens are assigned a life, so they don’t worry about finding schools, jobs, or spouses for themselves. They’re even allowed to have one child, enabling them to focus on raising an ideal son or daughter and experience an optimally satisfying family life.

The only people left out are the unlucky accidental second children, called the unregistered. For 20-year-old Bristol, this is the only life he knows. But he can’t shake the feeling that something is wrong with his world, and spends his nights painting controversial murals in low-profile parts of town.

Metrics doesn’t like the murals, or the frustrations of the unregistered citizens they represent.

They enact their long-debated unregistered solution: publicly, they announce the relocation of all unregistered citizens to far-off desert states. But when Bristol and his friends discover the dark truth behind the plan, they must work together to escape the clutches of their motherland, and survive long enough to discover an unknown world.

“Lynch’s exceptional near-future totalitarian nightmare of obedience and forced sterilization, all major individual decisions are removed. Four central characters in an unnamed city resent their repressive lives...Their lives intertwine in Lynch’s scant but complex book, which packs in scathing commentaries on police brutality, crime prevention, population control, classism, and state-sponsored murder.” - PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY ★★★★


AUTHOR INTERVIEW

Q: Why do you write?

A: Writing is a compulsive behavior of mine. I started filling journals with observations, stories poems, lists, and quotes throughout my childhood and just never stopped. I've had a blog ever since my family got a computer. I'd always wanted to write novels, but up until recently, I lacked the discipline. Now that I've found a process that works for me, I write novels because it's what lights me up; it fulfills me.

Q: What do you write?

A: Right now, I write fiction with speculative elements. Real life can also be bizarre and thrilling, but I really enjoy playing with science and technology, magic, and time travel. Below is the reading order for my current series.

CHILDREN OF THE UPRISING

  1. Unregistered
  2. Unafraid

Q: Why should readers pick up your books?

A: Readers are on my mind the entire time I'm writing. I try to be thoughtful enough to craft the experience that a reader will have when they enter the world of my novel. I'm always proud to say that I write commercial fiction, because it means my stories are created with the reader in mind.
