The Opree Legacy by L Anna Lenz
L Anna Lenz’s strength lies in her ability to write three dimensional characters readers will connect with instantly. This first book is just a taste, a peek into a much larger world steeped in political and social turmoil and the reader is hungry for more. She sets the pace leaving little time for readers to catch their breath as she drags them on an intense journey.

Corporations and a corrupt government control the world with stark contrasts between the haves and have-nots. Although reminiscent of Game of Thrones with the assortment of characters, political drama and violence, The Promise is an astonishingly unique for a first novel, and Lenz promises at least six more books in this series.
