The Torch Keeper by Steven dos Santos

[GOODREADS]

Genre: Dystopia

For Lucian “Lucky” Spark, Recruitment Day means the Establishment, a totalitarian government, will force him to become one of five Recruits competing to join the ruthless Imposer task force. Each Recruit participates in increasingly difficult and violent military training for a chance to advance to the next level. Those who fail must choose an “Incentive”—a family member—to be brutally killed. If Lucky fails, he’ll have to choose death for his only living relative: Cole, his four-year-old brother.

Lucky will do everything he can to keep his brother alive, even if it means sacrificing the lives of other Recruits’ loved ones. What Lucky isn’t prepared for is his undeniable attraction to the handsome, rebellious Digory Tycho. While Lucky and Digory train together, their relationship grows. But daring to care for another Recruit in a world where love is used as the ultimate weapon is extremely dangerous. As Lucky soon learns, the consequences can be deadly…

Vitro by Jessica Khoury

[GOODREADS]

Genre: Science Fiction, Dystopia

On a remote island in the Pacific, Corpus scientists have taken test tube embryos and given them life. These beings—the Vitros—have knowledge and abilities most humans can only dream of. But they also have one enormous flaw.

Sophie Crue is determined to get to Skin Island and find her mother, a scientist who left Sophie behind years ago. With the help of Jim Julien, a young charter pilot, she arrives—and discovers a terrifying secret she never imagined: she has a Vitro twin, Lux, who is the culmination of Corpus’s dangerous research.

Now Sophie is torn between reuniting with the mother who betrayed her and protecting the genetically enhanced twin she never knew existed. But untangling the twisted strands of these relationships will have to wait, for Sophie and Jim are about to find out what happens when science stretches too far beyond its reach.

Winter’s End by Jean-Claude Mourlevat

[GOODREADS]

Genre: Dystopia

Escape. Milena, Bartolomeo, Helen, and Milos have left their prison-like boarding schools far behind, but their futures remain in peril. Fleeing across icy mountains from a terrifying pack of dog-men sent to hunt them down, they are determined to take up the fight against the despotic government that murdered their parents years before. Only three will make it safely to the secret headquarters of the resistance movement. The fourth is captured and forced to participate in a barbaric game for the amusement of the masses — further proof of the government’s horrible brutality. Will the power of one voice be enough to rouse a people against a generation of cruelty? Translated from the French, this suspenseful story of courage, individualism, and freedom has resonated with young readers across the globe.

You love dystopian, post-apocalyptic and/or sci-fi books? You’ve already read The Hunger Games, Divergent, Delirium, Nineteen Eighty-Four, The Giver and other popular books? The Underrated Book Project can help you find your next read!

The Underrated Book Project is a series of posts which aims to promote books/series that are believed to be underrated by myself and other readers. Pictured above are a selection of dystopian books that are not necessarily as well-known as other books in the genre. There’s a mix of books that will appeal to people who enjoy dystopian and post-apocalyptic fiction, science fiction and books with fantasy/paranormal elements set in a dystopian/futuristic world. Some of these books are more popular than others, but they don’t quite have the same popularity as dystopian series such as The Hunger Games and Divergent. There are plenty of other books out there to discover!

The Sky So Heavy by Claire Zorn

[GOODREADS]

Genre: Dystopia

For Fin it’s just like any other day—racing for the school bus, bluffing his way through class, and trying to remain cool in front of the most sophisticated girl in his universe. Only it’s not like any other day because, on the other side of the world, nuclear missiles are being detonated. When Fin wakes up the next morning, it’s dark, bitterly cold, and snow is falling. There’s no internet, no phone, no TV, no power, and no parents. Nothing Fin’s learned in school could have prepared him for this. With his parents missing and dwindling food and water supplies, Fin and his younger brother Max must find a way to survive all on their own. When things are at their most desperate, where can you go for help?

Among the Fallen: Genesis by Scott Beadle, Christina Carroll and Ross Shortall

[GOODREADS]

Genre: Horror, Dystopia

Alexandra Beaumont, the daughter of a billionaire mayor of the city of Blackwater, had a pretty easy life until she and her younger sister were brutally murdered. After awakening in her grave three months later, Alex will discover that her death will be anything but easy.

While she lay dead, the Fallen, a violent and malicious race of trans-dimensional demons, invaded Blackwater, spreading a plague of carnage and death. As part of the demonic ritual, which led to their being summoned, the Earth is allowed a guardian, who can compete in a deadly game for a chance to save the Earth from the Fallen’s destruction. Alex discovers she has been chosen and must defeat five Fallen Judges hidden throughout Blackwater, and she must do so before sunrise.

As Alex fights her way through the derelict and plague-ravaged city, and the millions of undead that swarm the streets, she will discover that she may not be who she used to be, and she may have to become something else entirely if she is to win the game and defeat the Fallen.
