The Dystopian future "In Vitro Lottery" is currently free, but only for a couple of days on Kindle. It gets good reviews and I've actually read this one and it's really good.
New Apple Summer E-Book Awards 2016 WINNER: Sci-fi dystopian.
"Thought provoking, scarily believable and compelling." Louise Lambert
Decades after a deadly plague has ravaged the world, the children of the survivors can only reproduce via complex fertility treatment. Some can afford it, but for everyone else there is the In Vitro Lottery.
Kate never really wanted a family, so when her numbers come up she gives her winning ticket to her sister. But when tragedy strikes, Kate is forced out of her own small existence and sent on a collision course with the clinic CEO Victor Pearson, the pressure group IVFree and the Government in her quest for answers. When the fate of humanity is at stake, who really controls the future, and what will they do to protect it?
With research laboratories already conducting gene editing experiments on human embryos, In Vitro Lottery is a dark glimpse into our possible future, and asks can an ethical line ever be drawn against the greater good?
Some review snippets for IVL:
"The characters are well-rounded and relatable, and the writing is nuanced and elevated. I would recommend this book to fans of Orwell's 1984, as I found the tone and writing style to be quite similar. Five stars." EB
"This book will appeal to anyone who enjoys a dystopian style adventure. It has plenty of action, thrills and plot twists to keep a fan of most genres on their toes"
