About S. M. Lynch
S. M. Lynch is the thriller/science-fiction alter ego of Sarah Michelle Lynch, a romance novelist.
Sarah's creative writing journey began long ago at just eight years old. A story about a spider and a little girl convinced her teacher she really had something. A love of writing led to her completing a degree in English and then to go on and work in journalism.
The UNITY series (originally The Ravage Trilogy) started life as a dream, one which stayed with Sarah for a long time. It was always an ambition to write a novel one day and a long period of maternity leave (between 2011-2012) finally allowed this to happen. What she produced was the basis of exploration for a possible future world. These novels are inspired by her own eclectic tastes and reflect real people, real human themes and a journey guaranteed to keep you guessing.
Sarah has written over forty books to date.

When Kyle lands on earth, literally after falling out of the sky, Ariadne has quite the mystery on her hands when he turns out to be so different to all the others she's picked up off the street.
Daughter of the great Seraph Maddon and Ryken Hardy, Ariadne counts the deadliest assassin to have ever lived as her mentor and aunt, her father was World President for two terms, and her life has never been what other people would call normal.
She's about to come of age and will be able to wield a weapon, kill if she has to, and make her own choices.
But it really seems as though choices have been made for her already and the truth is not pretty.
After she’s decided she quite likes Kyle after all, what happens?
The worst, that’s what.
Ariadne’s world is falling apart. She’s not sure who to trust or how it’s possible that Kyle was once one of the inhabitants of Panacea.
Meanwhile, Arthur is determined that Camille should do his bidding, but there’s no way she will do that and a bloody confrontation looms.
Seth claims the planet will be uninhabitable within twenty years but the answer to this cataclysmic problem is one that will require heroism beyond imagining.
So when it is Ryken who is presented with a way to save the future for everyone he loves, will he do it? Even if the cost might just be far too terrible to come back from?
This conclusion promises action, shock revelations and twists galore!
It’s now been three months and she’s been running all this time, certain her father’s enemies had something to do with the tragedy. The trouble is, she doesn’t have all the facts. Was it an accident, as reported by the media? Is she just being paranoid? Or are there more sinister forces at work?
Along comes Nate. He lands in her life with no explanation of where he’s been or where he’s going. She has no idea if she can trust him.
Together they set off in search of answers, but Beatrice has her guard up, the lessons of her father never far from her thoughts: to plan for every scenario and not trust anyone. Despite her misgivings however, it quickly becomes clear Nate may be the key to figuring out her past—and present. Perhaps trusting him is the only option she has . . .
A new series which adds a fresh perspective to the frightening, alternative S. M. Lynch universe . . .
Leah was wrenched from everything she knew at a young age and turned into a killer. It became that she didn’t know anything else but the day’s toil of hardening her body and her mind.
Her mentor Caleb was the only person she saw and she couldn’t escape him. We only know that at some point they fell in love, but it didn’t quite go according to plan.
The present Leah Feltham is now the toughest assassin in London, a woman in her thirties working alone, existing for the job, nothing else.
Then, something goes wrong.
War is brewing. She knows it.
And she’s about to find her true love, right before it all kicks off . . .

When she finally makes it to the mysterious island they’ve heard so much about, Beatrice isn’t sure if all the sacrifice was worth it, but one thing she does know is that she’s edging ever closer to the truth. As she settles in to island life, she’s awed at first, horrified at times, and completely torn when it comes to her purpose. Will she risk her own life and others’ to finally expunge her father’s sick legacy? Someone left Sadie a note that cast doubt on Nate’s fate, but how could he have possibly dodged death, yet again? This explosive, shocking finale gives you answers . . . and then some.
It’s been almost two years since Nate attempted to unveil Panacea to the world, but the hacker’s efforts to bring the truth to the fore seem to have been crushed. Beatrice is gone from his life, that much is clear. But where? How? Is she ever coming back? A lone wolf, he’s on the hunt again, seeking answers… a route inside. Something. An old friend of his, Sadie is a geneticist who might be able to facilitate access to Panacea. She could give him all he needs, if only he could convince her to help him. The question is, what will it take to convince Sadie? Just what lengths must he go to in order to get inside the Collective’s uber-secretive island complex? All Nate knows is that he will do what he can, or die trying. Without Beatrice by his side though, he’s a different person entirely. Be prepared for a rollicking ride of psychological warfare, dark deeds, underhanded tactics… and one devastating truth you might never see coming.
The Operator's many secrets are about to be unleashed on the survivors among UNITY. With all questions answered, will the truth provide closure or create more problems to deal with? What happened in the 2020s that Seraph still doesn't know about and how will she react when she finds out the truth?
In this conclusion, the resistance are split up between several continents at once as they fight to survive the final remnants of Officium's devastatingly inhumane legacy.
As the year 2064 dawns, progress seems stilted and people fear a resurgence of Officium unless UNITY can provide a new leader.

There is an informant threatening to undo everything the resistance has so far achieved.
But who is, The Informant?
So it’s a shock when answers emerge from the most unexpected of places – York, England. Seraph’s great-aunt Eve Maddon, seemingly a simple dressmaker, lived a life Seraph knew nothing about.
It’s in the UK Seraph becomes aware she’s in real danger and along for the ride is Ryken Hardy, a virologist built more like a warrior than scientist.
The founder of UNITY, the one group working to return some sort of normality to the world, appears to be run by someone codenamed The Operator.
But who is The Operator?
