In this city, who can be Worthy?

This new dystopian novel explores themes of success, work, faith and relationships in a society controlled by technology. Comparisons can be drawn with Huxley's Brave New World, Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go and the concepts presented in Netflix's Black Mirror.

Book Reviews

"Crowned Worthy is a brilliant book! I found myself hooked from the very beginning, especially because the world the author builds carries a lot of resonance to many tendencies we see in our society today...Really good stuff from LG Jenkins and I can't wait for the sequel!" Ben, Amazon

"This dystopian style novel had me hooked from the start. The small contrasts to reality were relatable and had a 'black mirror' vibe to the storyline. The author balanced the main character for you to love/hate perfectly with an underlying personality that you wanted to discover deeper. I can't wait for the next novel in the series." Luke, Amazon
