A chilling, dystopian page-turner with a twist that will make your head explode
By Nick Clark Windo
A gripping post-apocalyptic thriller for fans of The Passage and The Girl With All the Gifts that asks: what would you sacrifice to save the world?
The Feed is a unique, thought-provoking and utterly addictive post-apocalyptic thriller that fans of The Girl With All the Gifts and The Passage will love. SJ Watson says he was 'hooked from the very beginning and haunted for days' and CJ Tudor was captivated by 'a twist that will make your head explode'.
The Feed was everything, until it was gone.
Tom and Kate have managed to survive in an unconnected world, but the search for their abducted daughter reveals what they have lost.
Without the Feed, no one knows who you are. No one knows who to trust.
Without it, how can their daughter be saved?
What readers are saying about The Feed:
'Absolutely terrifying. It is incredibly real and wholly recognisable'
'Gripping and exciting and all too close for comfort. Very realistic and beautifully written'
'A harrowing tale, at times moving, at times thoughtful, at times harsh. It will keep you coming back for more with characters that feel real, a vivid landscape and stellar thought-provoking story'
'This is not a book you can start reading and put back down so be prepared to lose some sleep over this one!'
Nick Clark Windo studied English Literature at Cambridge University and acting at RADA. As well as writing, he works as a film producer and communications coach. He lives in London with his wife and daughter. The Feed is his first novel.
