'This series is raising the standard for YA dystopian fiction, and I can’t give it less than 5 stars' - AyJayPageFarer Book Blog
Sixteen-year-old Bex Ellman has been drafted into an army she doesn't support and a cause she doesn't believe in. Her plan is to keep her head down, and keep herself and her friends safe – until she witnesses an atrocity she can't ignore, and a government conspiracy that threatens lives all over the UK. With her loyalties challenged, Bex must decide who to fight for – and who to leave behind.
The Battle Ground series is set in a dystopian near-future UK, after Brexit and Scottish independence.
Silence. Darkness. My pulse, loud in my ears.
We're under attack.
We need to move. We need to get out. Three floors underground in a nuclear bunker – we're safe while no one knows we’re here, but if they’ve found us, we're trapped. One way in, and one way out.
Voices. Sounds. Hammer blows, slamming through the silence.
I force myself to wake up. Open my eyes, push back the blanket, crawl out of bed.
I need to wake the others.
Boots. Armour. Gun.
Time to be brave.
