My goal was to provide a vision of the future that is very plausible and scary, yet has hope,” says author Michael C. Bland. A best-selling, multi-award-winning author, Bland specializes in writing fast-paced thrillers grounded in reality. A story that both entertains and enlightens, The Price of Rebellion showcases the harrowing reality of what the future could be in a way that will stay with readers long after the last page is turned. “I wanted to show how in the future, it may be very difficult to protect those we love.”

Set in 2047, the story picks up in a near-future America where society is being controlled by the government using a surveillance network engineered by Dray, along with neural nets implanted in citizens’ heads, to broadcast propaganda. After publicly revealing the dangers of the mandated implants, Dray is named an enemy of the state and joins an uprising to overthrow the government. In a race to stay alive long enough to thwart the government’s plot and protect his family, Dray is told his younger daughter, who he thought was dead, still lives. With the country’s future in the balance, he’s forced to choose between fighting the rebellion and chasing a desperate hope to find her.

The book weaves together several standout features that put it in a class of its own. Bland’s writing is fast-paced and immediate, with many scenes that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

In addition, themes of technology, family, disinformation, and freedom tie the work together in a memorable way, showing that life, no matter how challenging, always finds a way to continue.
