Short Synopsis
Ariel Djanikian presents her debut novel: a riveting story of love and adventure, set in a postapocalyptic world.

Full Synopsis
Weaving philosophy and science together into a riveting, dystopian story of love and adventure, The Office of Mercy illuminates an all-too-real future imagined by a phenomenal new voice in fiction.

Twenty-four-year-old Natasha Wiley lives in America-Five—a high-tech, underground, utopian settlement where hunger and money do not exist, everyone has a job, and all basic needs are met. But when her mentor and colleague, Jeffrey, selects her to join a special team to venture Outside for the first time, Natasha's allegiances to home, society, and above all to Jeffrey are tested. She is forced to make a choice that may put the people she loves most in grave danger and change the world as she knows it.

The Office of Mercy is speculative fiction at its best with a deeply imagined, lush world, high-stakes adventure, and romance that will thrill fans of Suzanne Collins, Margaret Atwood, Justin Cronin, and Kazuo Ishiguro.

"Emily Zeller delivers the combination of love, science, and philosophy in this debut novel with empathy and compassion. . . .Listeners of all ages will be engrossed by the stylish narration as well as the futuristic drama and surprise ending." ---AudioFile
