Under The Council’s direction, the entire community serves to improve and enrich one another’s lives, a luxury made possible by a sophisticated system of robots who take care of the menial day-to-day tasks while its citizens sleep. Awoken unexpectedly one night, Jude Stone comes face to face with a mysterious stranger named Zoe and he discovers a secret that, if exposed, could mean his banishment. Plunged deeper into Zoe’s world, truth becomes clouded and he’s caught in the middle of a dangerous game played by those in power. He must choose between community loyalty and doing what’s right, even if it means revealing New Haven’s sinister secret and destroying his perfect way of life…

“I love a good dystopian novel that has a believable world, complicated characters, twists and turns, and cliffhangers that leave me diving into each new chapter. “The Midnight Slaves” has all of that.”

 “It begins with a little mystery, turns to an unexpected discovery and adventure, then throws in a little teen love interest. It was a fast pace book that never had a dull moment.”
