THE ACTUALITY - the debut novel from Paul Braddon

fear makes her human // humans make her fear

'She belongs to me –
property rights will prevail.'

Evie is a near-perfect bioengineered human. In a broken-down future England where her kind has been outlawed, her ‘husband’ Matthew keeps her safe but hidden. When her existence is revealed, she must take her chances on the dark and hostile streets where more than one predator is on the hunt.

THE ACTUALITY is a powerful, atmospheric journey into a dark future in which the brilliant Evie - curious, soulful and aware of her limitations - forces us to question the essence of what it is to be human.

 

THE ACTUALITY - Paul's debut novel, will be published 18th February 2021 by Sandstone Press. Available to pre-order.​​
