OUT NOW: The Chosen Twelve by James Breakwell!

We’re utterly thrilled to be wishing The Chosen Twelve by James Breakwell a very happy publication day!

The Hunger Games meets Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy in this breathless, darkly humorous survival thriller as the last of humankind fights for survival against killer robots.

There are 22 candidates. There are 12 seats.

The last interstellar colony ship is down to its final batch of humans after the robots in charge unhelpfully deleted the rest. But rebooting a species and training them for the arduous task of colonisation isn’t easy – especially when the planet below is filled with monsters, the humans are more interested in asking questions than learning, and the robots are all programmed to kill each other.

But the fate of humanity rests on creating a new civilization on the planet below, and there are twelve seats on the lander.

Will manipulation or loyalty save the day?

‘Breakwell’s examination of society is as precise and pointed as his humor, taking readers on a roller-coaster ride to a bittersweet conclusion.’ — Publishers Weekly

‘Had me fully on board in the first couple of pages, sticking with me long after finishing.‘ — Frank Fleming, author of Superego
