57th Year of the true leadership of The Ordained Liberating Party; or Year 2273 by the old calendar.
“The Collapse” took millions of lives and most of the country’s farming lands, bringing the surviving population of the island to the brink of starvation.

Out of the aftermath of the chaos and anarchy, a new state had emerged, known as The Federation Britannia, run by the single and unopposed Ordained Liberating Party.
The division of the country’s orphanages for children of “the true citizens” and children of “the enemies of the state” began the clearance of the questionable element, and bloody years of the Age of Cleansing had finished the purge, leaving behind a perfectly obedient electorate that marched every year in the Liberation Day parades, praising the Party’s leadership and following the Party’s every directive.

The rule of the Party is absolute. Its tool of compliance, the State Security Unit, is feared.

Tom isn’t a frightened follower, he is a true believer. He loves the Party with all his heart. He trusts in the Party’s wisdom. The Party had raised him, rewarding his devotion and love with a lucrative engineering job, and after the approval for the Procreation licence, it also granted him a family.

But the unexpected midnight visit by the State Security to his flat, questions asked and blood samples collected, unsettles Tom more than he likes to admit, and the following day, whilst investigating the “black uniforms” interest, Tom witnesses the State Security troops, led by the familiar officer, marshalling the children from his daughter’s nursery, packing them into trucks and taking them into the unknown.

At that moment Tom is forced to make a decision: either to follow the Party directive and to surrender his child into its plenary care or to protect what he loves and run.

But there’s nowhere to run. There’s no escape from the island or from the complete control of the Ordained Liberating Party.

“No Child of Mine” is a story of a father’s journey to save his child from a totalitarian regime, who is in order to bury the truth prepared to exterminate an entire generation.

My Rating: 🐧🐧🐧🐧

My Thoughts: Wow this story was intricate and detailed, the world building was amazing!

Everything they do is controlled, even down to when the telly comes on, what they are allowed to watch and even the volume!

When it starts we’re following Judy who is talking to her husband Tom about how much she misses their daughter, she hasn’t seen her for a while and so she’s going to help the nursery with the parade just to spend a bit of extra time with Tilly!

It soon becomes clear that Tilly doesn’t feel comfortable around her mum and dad almost like she doesn’t really know who they are, which opens you up to a lot more questions..

Whilst at the parade Judy notices that the children are acting strangely and that they seem to be covered in little lumps similar to blisters, what’s going on, why has no one noticed this?

From there things go down hill quite quickly, children are being taken & people are dying!

When the unthinkable happens Tom really steps up and takes charge, can he hide his daughter and keep her safe before it’s too late?

This was fast paced and the twists and turns just kept coming! – I didn’t know what to expect from this story but I’m glad I gave it a chance!
