Alternative History meets ‘The Hunger Games’ in Kuronoshio’s ‘The Loyalty Tests’ – an ultra-violent, Japanese influenced Science Fiction novel. And currently our ‘Book of the Week’.
THE LOYALTY TESTS
After being caught shoplifting, Sakura Kobayashi is forced to take the loyalty tests – a brutal form of personality adjustment, in which one hundred people are forced to prove their loyalty by obeying a series of increasingly horrific orders. Only one will survive.
In a world where being social engineering is the norm, and individuality is punished, will Sakura survive the tests with her sanity and sense of self intact. Will she survive at all?
Mix ultra-cool Japanese Science Fiction like ‘Battle Royale’, ‘Ghost In The Shell’ or even ‘Appleseed’, with ‘The Hunger Games’ and you end up with a novel like ‘The Loyalty Tests’.
Truly unsettling, gritty dystopian S.F that will appeal to the whole range of Science Fiction fans. It will hook you in. Guaranteed.
