Kill Code

by Clive Fleury

 

FIGHTING FOR THE TRUTH

What will our world look like just a few years from now? Who will run the country? Will it be better to live then or will it be worse?

If you’re interested in a highly entertaining dystopian sci-fi my new novel, Kill Code: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel, is the book for you.

It asks: In a world gone wrong, can one good man make a difference? Or will he die trying?

Kill Code is set in the near future—Our future. Their present.

It’s a world ruined by climate catastrophe, where the sun’s heat kills and the oceans rise higher every day. A world ruled by the wealthy and the corrupt. A world where a good man cannot survive for long.

Kill Code is the first in a trilogy of an exciting new dystopian science fiction series set in a world facing climate catastrophe where nothing is what it seems. It will captivate fans of fantasy adventure books like The Hunger Games, The 5th Wave, and Divergent.

The novel is available in eBook and paperback—Amazon and Barnes & Noble – and you can grab your copy for just $2.99 at:

Ned Kelly with Sex and Magic
“Taking an Australian Legend and rewriting it into an apocalyptic future where magic exists, gold fever is upon us, and a corrupt legal system once again makes bushrangers our heroes,” Lancy’s Reads.
Ned Kelly’s story is infamous, but this is not Ned Kelly’s story. This is the story of a young man named Kelly, inspired by some crazy Australian legends, but all written as pure fiction.
With the addition of Victoria, a feisty and suddenly abandoned woman right on the verge of marry-or-perish age. Her fate is all Kelly’s fault and she plans on making him aware of that – winds up saving his life, after he saves hers, and the whole time whilst running from the law.
The world has been hit by an event that has turned all metal into a conductor of magic. The stuff is lethal. Which means no more cars, no more phones, no more pots and pans. Give it a few decades and the dust has settled into a colonial/settler landscape. Horses, carts, and old world values.
Marriage is essential, careers for women are very uncommon and the domestic workload is massive. But a woodcutters daughter like Victoria doesn’t have many options. She hates them all and dreads the conversation with her parents, but resigns herself to suffer in silence. She will marry whomever her father arranges.
Which just might be the local law, who has the darkest most painful fantasies about her.
Then her father makes the mistake of offending a handful of outlaws on the way out of town and the men follow the family home. They forcefully join the family for dinner, changing Victoria’s life forever when she emerges from her room the next morning having slept the night with a convict. Never mind that she did it to take their attention off her younger sisters, or that her father created the whole mess by saying the wrong thing to the wrong people, Victoria is ostracised. Tossed out then and there. Barefoot and with nothing but an old woodcutter’s hand-me-down dress – and dresses are damned useless for running around in the bush in.
She would be free of her marriage dilemmas, small consolation, if the local law didn’t take up the hunt and put a price on all of their heads. Being found by him would be an endless fate worse than death.
Which begins the whole saga of trouble, villainy, brutality, lust, revenge, mateship and good old Australian larrikiny.
“Hilarious and dark,” Samantha’s Book Reviews.
18+ warning… maybe even 21+. This book takes readers to some dark scenes, including rape.

Excerpt

Kelly and Victoria meet and it unfolds like this from Victoria’s point of view…
“I’ll tell you what, if you can manage to say my name, then I’ll stop,” he whispers.
Sitting up, he looks me in the eye.
“You know what my name is, don’t you?”
I nod, my heart pounding so hard it’s stopping my lungs from functioning.
“Then say it,” he commands.
I slip my bottom lip between my teeth and hold it tight.
“No?” He smiles, lowering his face down to mine, our foreheads touching. “Last chance.”
…Which leads to this later in the book from Kelly’s point of view…
“It’s because of you that my father threw me from the house and—”
I shush her, resting my arm against the wall, and using all my willpower to keep from resting against her soft body.
“You didn’t ask me to stop,” I say.
“You tied me up!”
“Your mouth worked fine.”
“You… You… ”
“I… I… left you still dressed and unharmed. More than I should have.”
Her lips part, flashing perfect white teeth. Then she rushes past me. “I think I shall wait with the horse.”
And I’m left wishing I’d grabbed her arm and kept her against the wall.

About UNKNOWN (Unknown Trilogy #1):

Amber Tate believes the worst thing she’ll suffer in life is dealing with the unrequited love she feels for her brother’s best friend, Rylen Fite. She also believes war is something unfortunate that happens places far, far away from her rural Nevada town. She’s wrong on both counts.

When an unknown organization meticulously bombs major cities in the United States and across the globe, a trickle-down effect spreads to remaining towns at an alarming speed—everything from food and water sources to technology and communications are compromised. Without leadership, the nation is split between paralysis and panic, but Amber isn’t one to hide or watch helplessly. She’s determined to put her nursing skills to use, despite the danger, even if it means working alongside the man she can never have.

In this first installment of NY Times bestselling author, Wendy Higgins’s debut New Adult series, a frighteningly realistic apocalyptic America is brought to life, entwined with searing romantic tension that will leave you eager for more.

About UNREST (Unknown Trilogy #2):

Being on the run in the desert means food and sanctuary are hard to come by, but Amber Tate and her crew are not about to give up. Not after having so many of the things they love brutally ripped from them by an unknown enemy who sent their world into the apocalypse.

Survival takes precedence, but once safe shelter is found, their guards fall and the emotions they’ve been holding in are finally released. Anger, insecurities…lust. In their tight quarters, Amber, Rylen, Tater, and Remy can’t escape it. The past must be faced, and passions run even stronger in the darkest of times.

In the midst of unrest, their worlds are rocked again when they discover the truth about the war that’s ruined their lives. They thought finding out the enemy’s identity would give them the edge; instead it’s revealed terrifying dangers they never thought possible.

About UNDONE (Unknown Trilogy #3, Coming 12/5/17):

Amber Tate never dreamed their heart-wrenching escape from the enemy’s attack would lead them to the most beautiful place she’s ever seen. Like everywhere else in the world, Elmendorf military base in Alaska has been taken over, but it’s time to take it back—all of it—one base, one city at a time. After losing so much, Amber clings to the one precious person she has left, and vows to sacrifice everything to help save the Earth.

Remy Haines is a lover, not a fighter, so when she finds herself in enemy territory, expected to feign allegiance while gathering intel for the rebel cause, she’s never been more out of her element. Tensions only increase when her feelings for Jacob “Tater” Tate won’t go away, and the enemy’s leader takes an interest in her. She’s torn between what her heart wants, and what she knows she should do. As for what her body needs…well, it’s always had a mind of its own.
