Cal's world splinters apart when he finds out he's been in a deliberately induced coma state for most of his life, and what he thought was real was only an illusion.
Escaping his captors, Cal goes on the run, determined to fight the forces behind the nightmare he finds waiting for him in the real world, and to discover his true identity. A tense and gripping thriller where nothing is as it seems, from a talented author whose writing cuts straight to the bone - spiky, uncompromising and deeply moving.

Review by juniperjungle
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it combines dystopia with thriller really well, both aspects of the plot feel very well balanced. For me the best dystopias are those that you can imagine happening, where you can see how our society could disintegrate to that point, and Cracks definitely ticks this box. This is a fast-paced read, I couldn’t hit the page forward button on my Kindle quickly enough at times. I didn’t always buy how Cal who’d missed the last 12 years and the changes in society accepted this new world, but that was my only niggle with the book.
