“I was just a baby when we were relocated and I don’t remember much. Everybody has that black hole at the beginning of their life. That time you can’t remember. Your first step. Your first taste of table food. My real memories begin in our assigned living area in Compound 14.”

Just a generation ago, this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of a UN–led program called Agenda 21, it’s simply known as “the Republic.” There is no president. No Congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom.

There are only the Authorities.

Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life. Those who cannot do either are of no use to society. This bleak and barren existence is all that eighteen-year-old Emmeline has ever known. She dutifully walks her energy board daily and accepts all male pairings assigned to her by the Authorities. Like most citizens, she keeps her head down and her eyes closed.

Until the day they come for her mother.

“You save what you think you’re going to lose.”

Woken up to the harsh reality of her life and her family’s future inside the Republic, Emmeline begins to search for the truth. Why are all citizens confined to ubiquitous concrete living spaces? Why are Compounds guarded by Gatekeepers who track all movements? Why are food, water and energy rationed so strictly? And, most important, why are babies taken from their mothers at birth? As Emmeline begins to understand the true objectives of Agenda 21, she realizes that she is up against far more than she ever thought. With the Authorities closing in, and nowhere to run, Emmeline embarks on an audacious plan to save her family and expose the Republic—but is she already too late?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Absolutely stunning! Agenda 21 is more frightening than anything Orwell could have envisioned. It is the ultimate thriller, capturing our darkest fears in a brilliantly written, exhilarating, pulse-pounding adventure. If this is what the future holds, I don’t want to live to see it; I want to live to fight it! Agenda 21 is the 1984 of the twenty-first century.”

    Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cristen | 2/13/2014

    " It was ok, not great. Shallow storyline, not much character development (except for the protagonist, who matures a little bit toward the end of the book). I guess it serves its purpose; this book isn't meant to be a great work of fiction, but instead to be an easy read warning of the dangers of a powerful centralized government. That, it was. Amazing book, it was not. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheri | 2/10/2014

    " amazing book! well written and very eye-opening. A must read for every american! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gapeach | 2/10/2014

    " I actually bought this for my husband at Christmas. I had run out of things to read and picked it up.I hadn't even considered reading it because I thought it was political. However it's actually a dystopian story, I enjoyed it. The main character is likeable. the plot is intersting. The only thing I didn't care for was that it was open-ended. I like to know what happens with a definite conclusion. Other than that it was great. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Desiree | 1/31/2014

    " Fans of Glenn Beck, eat your heart out! I read this as a favor to an uber-conservative friend and found myself gagging down all his fearmongering, apocalyptic rhetoric. It felt like I was arguing the entire time. The story, itself, is interesting if you can get past his claims that the destruction of human existence as we know it will come at the hands of radical, tree-hugging environmentalists or that somehow he knows what the Founding Fathers actually intended. All hail the prophet, Mr. Beck! Dystopian books are interesting because they imagine the possible. Mr. Beck, however, wants to sell you on the idea that this is actually coming unless we all do something really drastic. Well, as long as his fortune keeps growing and he isn't asked to share any of it with anybody! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elyse Ludwig | 1/12/2014

    " I was really disappointed by this book. It started off great, it was well written and you immediately get drawn into the life of the main character. She's intelligent, strong headed and slightly naive. And then the author just drops you and leaves you hanging when the story really gets interested. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eileen Dilbeck | 1/9/2014

    " Really liked it! Was caught up in Emmaline's daily routine, her story of walking the grid, being old enough for pairing, secretly.rebelling against the authority. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 1/5/2014

    " read it in one sitting, just could not put it down & highly recommend it "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sue | 1/4/2014

    " The story was interesting, the narrative clear and 'dystopian' enough. But too bad the author wanted to use this as a platform for right-wing propaganda. An 'afterword' that was longer than necessary trying to put out the dangers of Agenda 21. Missing the 'spirit' of the actual UN document altogether. Laughable but a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shea | 1/3/2014

    " It was a very easy read. Very reminiscent of The Hunger Games, albeit without the games! Whether you are a fan of Beck or not, it is an entertaining story that sucked me right in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josefa | 12/13/2013

    " Love it! Creepy that it is "based" on a real U.N. Agenda 21 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kris | 11/30/2013

    " Hunger games-style book. If you can get past the author & skip over the propaganda at the end (the afterword), it was a pretty good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim Sevy | 11/19/2013

    " Excellent! Eye opening look at a possible future is we continue to trade our liberty for supposed security. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea Aguilar | 10/14/2013

    " If you love your freedom, read this. It is scary, but true! Like the book says, little by little, this country is less and less free, and people don't realize it!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 9/4/2013

    " I really enjoyed this. Interesting concept and good story, although I thought it finished abruptly! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol Dussault | 9/1/2013

    " Well written fiction, underscoring a blood chilling reality, if we don't wake up soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William | 7/25/2013

    " Scary. Every American should read this book so that you can awaken and stop this evil UN program. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James Wood | 7/1/2013

    " A easy read that brings the term slippery slope in focus by taking the ideas of Agenda 21 and showing the many possible outcomes that my result. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 2/1/2013

    " A startling premise. Agenda 21 is a shocking what-could-come in a future reality where the 'Republic' is blatantly not your friend and forges the pathway to enslavement in less than a generation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carijane | 12/23/2012

    " The ideas behind the book make it a good read. We should be aware of what may happen behind the real idea of Agenda 21. I will recommend and pass this book along to all my family members just to be informed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 11/7/2012

    " I was sort of speechless after reading the book and the Afterword. Maybe I'll read the actual UN written Agenda 21 from 1993. I'm all for doing things that help the environment to an extent, but there are some things that would be too much. "
