Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Fighting Back by Rachel Churcher. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my stop on the tour! Check out my review and let me know what you think.
Bex Ellman and her friends are in hiding, sheltered by the resistance. With her family threatened and her friendships challenged, she’s looking for a way to fight back. Ketty Smith is in London, supporting a government she no longer trusts. With her support network crumbling, Ketty must decide who she is fighting for – and what she is willing risk to uncover the truth.
The Battle Ground series is set in a dystopian near-future UK, after Brexit and Scottish independence.
I don’t even know how to review this book right now because this series is just THAT good and it keeps getting better. Just when I thought we’d seen how incredible Rachel Churcher’s writing is, she comes out with Fighting Back and blows me away again.
Fighting Back is what YA Dystopian should aim to be. Fast-paced, brilliant characters, tension, drama, captivating writing…I can keep going! I can’t get enough of this series and I just want to keep reading.
If you’re looking for a Dystopian that is actually worth reading, stop right now and go get these books. You won’t be disappointed. Rachel Churcher is a writer you want to have on your auto buy list. She’s certainly on mine!
Rachel Churcher was born between the last manned moon landing, and the first orbital Space Shuttle mission. She remembers watching the launch of STS-1, and falling in love with space flight, at the age of five. She fell in love with science fiction shortly after that, and in her teens she discovered dystopian fiction. In an effort to find out what she wanted to do with her life, she collected degrees and other qualifications in Geography, Science Fiction Studies, Architectural Technology, Childminding, and Writing for Radio.
She has worked as an editor on national and in-house magazines; as an IT trainer; and as a freelance writer and artist. She has renovated several properties, and has plenty of horror stories to tell about dangerous electrics and nightmare plumbers. She enjoys reading, travelling, stargazing, and eating good food with good friends – but nothing makes her as happy as writing fiction.
Her first published short story appeared in an anthology in 2014, and the Battle Ground series is her first long-form work. Rachel lives in East Anglia, in a house with a large library and a conservatory full of house plants. She would love to live on Mars, but only if she’s allowed to bring her books.
