Break through the government propaganda and avoid surveillance cameras in We, The Watched.
Told from the first-person perspective of an amnesiac, this dystopian adventure places the reader in the shoes of Seven as he struggles to go unnoticed in a surveillance society and discover his true identity.
Seven enters a dystopia where the government conducts mass surveillance and keeps a Watched list of its own citizens. The Church has become as powerful as the State, and people who resist are called Heretics and face execution. Seven's amnesia gives him a blank-slate perspective that helps him see through the propaganda, and he soon gets involved with a group of rebels called the Underground. But this same perceptive power could get him into a lot of trouble with the government police force known as the Guard.
