Cult

Rated 4.75/5 based on 4 reviews
The world had never heard of Thompson Village, Arizona. Its walls were high, its secrets were well-kept, and its elite worked tirelessly to keep the tiny community hidden from prying eyes. Its 159 families knew nothing of electricity, medicine, or democracy. They knew only what they had been told: that their ruthless Elders had been ordained by God to keep them safe. And they believed it. More

About Michelle Hand

Michelle Hand is an independent author from Tempe, Arizona. She wrote her debut novel Cult in 2013, publishing Nov. 1. The e-book has gone on to be downloaded over a thousand times across multiple platforms and has garnered consistently high reviews. Cult was inspired by an interest in how cults form and the psychology that drives them, as well as by a deep passion for social issues like gender oppression, religious and political corruption, and the abuse of power. It is a story driven by very complex and authentic characters and centers around themes of love and loss, protection of the innocent, and justice.

With each new book published, the ultimate goal is to start conversations about complex issues that are often presented in an overly simplistic light. Every character is designed to introduce the reader to characters they could meet in everyday life but never truly get the chance to know. Readers will walk away feeling more aware of the world around them, more connected to the stories of others, and more heard as threads of their own stories seem to be woven into the tapestry of these books.

Cult is currently available with a "choose your price" option. Readers are encouraged to download their own copy for free, and if they enjoy the book please show support by returning to purchase a copy for a friend! It's a great way to try something risk free and ultimately to support something you can feel good about. All proceeds go directly into making more books and marketing existing ones so that new readers can continue to discover them. It costs approximately 8 cents to drive a brand-new reader to this page. So a donation of even a dollar will go a long way!

Happy reading.

This is definitely one of my favorite books. I was so captivated that I read it in two days. I agree with the other reviewers that the story is not predictable which adds to the intrigue.

I loved this book! When I started reading it I figured I would be biased because I know the author, but as I got wrapped up in the story I was so excited about how good it was. The corruption and heroism gives it a Hunger Games feel, but with a completely different plot. I would definitely recommend this and I can't wait to read her future books :) I'm crossing my fingers for the next ones to be longer because I didn't want to set this one down!
