Today I am really excited to be bringing you a dystopian fiction novel set in the not so distance future after both Brexit and Scottish independence, this is actually the second novel in the series and already has several five-star reviews!
Ketty Smith is an instructor with the Recruit Training Service, turning sixteen-year-old conscripts into government fighters. She’s determined to win the job of lead instructor at Camp Bishop, but the arrival of Bex and her friends brings challenges she’s not ready to handle. Running from her own traumatic past, Ketty faces a choice: to make a stand, and expose a government conspiracy, or keep herself safe, and hope she’s working for the winning side.
The Battle Ground series is set in a dystopian near-future UK, after Brexit and Scottish independence.

After reading book one I was obsessed with this series, but book two has increased that obsessed tenfold. False Flag tells the same story as Battle Ground but from the perspective of someone on the other side; creating this book has shown how much Rachel has put into creating this story & by including both Bex & Ketty’s perspectives she’s made it hard to decide where the reader’s loyalty lies. I cannot wait for the next installment of this series & desperately want everyone to read it!!
This is a fantastic follow-up to Battle Ground. We get the same story from the point of view of Ketty, the first book’s antagonist. if you’ve already enjoyed Battle Ground, you definitely want to get Ketty’s side of the story.
And if you haven’t enjoyed Battle Ground yet, you should grab that one too.
Note: I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
About the Author
Rachel Churcher was born between the last manned moon landing, and the first orbital Space Shuttle mission. She remembers watching the launch of STS-1, and falling in love with space flight, at the age of five. She fell in love with science fiction shortly after that, and in her teens she discovered dystopian fiction. In an effort to find out what she wanted to do with her life, she collected degrees and other qualifications in Geography, Science Fiction Studies, Architectural Technology, Childminding, and Writing for Radio.
She has worked as an editor on national and in-house magazines; as an IT trainer; and as a freelance writer and artist. She has renovated several properties, and has plenty of horror stories to tell about dangerous electrics and nightmare plumbers. She enjoys reading, travelling, stargazing, and eating good food with good friends – but nothing makes her as happy as writing fiction.
Her first published short story appeared in an anthology in 2014, and the Battle Ground series is her first long-form work. Rachel lives in East Anglia, in a house with a large library and a conservatory full of house plants. She would love to live on Mars, but only if she’s allowed to bring her books.
