99¢ on Kindle

In this world, all people are not created equal.

Daniela Machado is offered a chance to escape the deprivation of Bronx City through a coveted slot at the elite Tuck School. There, among the highborn of Manhattan, she discovers an unimaginable world of splendor and greed. But her opportunity is part of a darker plan, and Daniela soon learns that those at society’s apex will stop at nothing to keep power for themselves. She may have a chance to change the world, if it doesn’t change her first.

Age of Order is a novel that explores the meaning of merit and inequality. Fans of the Hunger Games, Red Rising, and Divergent will enjoy this world of deception and intrigue, where the downtrodden must fight for a better future.

“Age of Order is powerfully charged with rich characters and a dynamic story line. One of the BEST new YA books we've reviewed”

“There's no shortage of YA sci-fi yarns that focus on the gap between haves and have-nots. But North's entry is superlative, and his well-rendered setting is a more interesting conceit than Suzanne Collins' similar Panem in The Hunger Games... A promising debut that re-energizes tropes in the dystopian sci-fi genre.”

“The story itself is immensely creative... Setting up a wealth of mysteries before pulling back the veil on each, it's hard to escape the grasp of this book”
