Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Victory Day 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 Ketty Smith meet in London. As the war heats up around them, Bex and Ketty mustlearn to trust each other. With her friends and family in danger, Bex needs Ketty to help rescuethem. For Ketty, working withBex is a matter of survival. When Victory is declared, both will be heldaccountable for their decisions.
The Battle Ground series is set in a dystopian near-future UK, after Brexit and Scottish independence.
Rachel Churcher is on my auto-buy list. I absolutely love her writing and the Battle Ground series has been absolutely incredible. What I love is that consistently, the books have just gotten better every time. Victory Day is no exception. What is so compelling is just how realistic this story has been from the beginning.
The characters are wonderful. The representation of PTSD is clearly portrayed in a very real light. Victory Day is about how people’s lives change after the end of a conflict. Not everything is roses when you’ve won a conflict and Rachel Churcher writes this so well.
I love this series so much. I love that Rachel Chrucher shows us both sides of the conflict. I also love, that like in many conflicts, not everything is split in a clearly drawn line.
I highly recommend checking Victory Day out.

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.
