Little water, less food, and all but no hope. A wall keeps one of the last vestiges of society safe, but it can't protect its denizens from themselves.
If you could save one person, who would it be? A child? A lover? Yourself? In a world where humanity is in its death throes, this question isn’t a hypothetical.
Conspirator, savior, or mere survivor — which one of their stories is yours?

- "The Lesser Evil by Daniel Settanni explodes into action. Settanni pens a sensational narrative, intertwining the influential powers of money, military, politics and science. The chapters are short, creating fast paced action. Keeping the suspense alive, Settanni gradually interlocks the pieces of the puzzling plot. The cast of characters rebounds well against each other. They are interesting - some are peculiar and elusive, a few are formidably eerie, while others are victims of circumstance. However, the narrative's propulsion is directly related to the heroine's morphing character. The descriptions are sensory, chilling and hauntingly imaginative. Although the setting depicts overcrowding, despair and the squalor of mankind, the true conflict lies within the realm of morality. A little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing. Creating artificial intelligence in the likeness of man has repercussions. Humanity is flawed; no one plays God and gets away with it." ~ Cheryl E. Rodriguez for Readers' Favorite
- "The Lesser Evil will entertain you, tease you, and have you asking serious questions about mankind's destiny. It will force you to watch each step the protagonist takes, unveiling clues as it develops. I found it to be a very satisfying read with an absorbing, irresistible setting and plot." ~ Divine Zape for Readers' Favorite
- "The plot is original and it features great conflict and I enjoyed the fact that the conflict is introduced in the very opening lines of the story. The reader is left in no doubt that they will be dealing with something big. This is the kind of book I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to fans of dystopia, those who love high-scale conflict, drama and intrigue." ~ Ruffina Oserio for Readers' Favorite
