Synopsis

Break through the government propaganda and avoid surveillance cameras in We, The Watched.
Told from the first-person perspective of an amnesiac, this dystopian adventure places the reader in the shoes of Seven as he struggles to go unnoticed in a surveillance society and discover his true identity. Seven enters a dystopia where the government conducts mass surveillance and keeps a Watched list of its own citizens. The Church has become as powerful as the State, and people who resist are called Heretics and face execution. Seven's amnesia gives him a blank-slate perspective that helps him see through the propaganda, and he soon gets involved with a group of rebels called the Underground. But this same perceptive power could get him into a lot of trouble with the government police force known as the Guard.

The debut novel by Adam Bender exposes a current political issue in an exciting science fiction adventure, carrying on the tradition of dystopian classics 1984 by George Orwell and Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, as well as more recent blockbuster novels like The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

"Fueled by a brilliantly nebulous backdrop, this briskly paced, action-packed novel is undeniably a page-turner of the highest order... A deeply allegorical and powerfully thought-provoking dystopian must-read." - Kirkus Reviews

"The dialog was excellent and the situations seemed driven by curiosity, which is a great way to pull you into an adventure. The detail of the forest and every part of the book helped me visualize the world and kept me submersed in the story. The author captures the imagination of the reader creating an addicting story." - Readers Favorite

"There's action, romance, and social commentary woven into a brilliant story with an amazing plot twist near the end ... It's science fiction in the way that Orwell's 1984 or Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury dystopian novels are considered science fiction ... The writing is nearly on par with these geniuses of the written word." - The American Chronicle
