Available now from Waterstones, Blackwells, Amazon and all good booksellers.

The Slated trilogy

Slated is set in the UK about forty years in the future: in a world where the UK has left the EU and closed borders. In a world where underage criminals have their memories wiped. In a world where there is a desperate fight for freedom against a brutal government.


Kyla will be part of this fight: she has no choice. But how?

Will she be a freedom fighter, or a terrorist?

Book 1: Slated


Kyla's memory has been erased,

her personality wiped blank,

her memories lost for ever.


She's been Slated.


The government claims she was a terrorist, and that they are giving her a second chance - as long as she plays by their rules. But echoes of the past whisper in Kyla's mind. Someone is lying to her, and nothing is as it seems. Who can she trust in her search for the truth?

Book 2: Fractured


Kyla shouldn't be able to remember anything. But she can - and she's beginning to realise that there are a lot of dark secrets locked away in her memories.


When a mysterious man from her past comes back into her life, she thinks she's on her way to finding the truth. But the more she learns about her history, the more confusing her future becomes...


Book 3: Shattered

 Kyla's memory was erased,

her personality wiped blank,

her memories lost for ever.


Or so she thought.


After the shocking events of SLATED and FRACTURED, we return to Kyla's oppressive world as she tries to make sense of her life and everything around her.

Set in a disturbing near-future world, this is the conclusion to an engrossing, fast-paced trilogy that establishes Teri Terry as a master thriller writer.

Fated - the Slated Prequel

 I'm just one girl. What can I do?


Sam's cosy life as daughter of the Deputy Prime Minister is about to end. These are turbulent times. The UK has left the EU and borders have closed; protests are turning violent. The government blames the country's youth, and is cracking down hard. Mobile phones are blocked, gatherings are banned and dissent is brutally crushed.

Sam is torn between family loyalty and doing what is right. When she meets Ava and Lucas her mind is made up.

One girl, one choice. She can make a difference: she must. Even if her life - and her heart - are on the line ...

Reviews: Slated

'Slated is a beautiful, intriguing puzzle revealed piece by dark and sinister piece.'

Sara Grant

author of Dark Parties



'Gripping, chilling and all too real. An unputdownable thriller.'

L.A. Weatherly

author of Angel



'An original and haunting psychological thriller set in a future where criminalisation of the young has been taken to the most chilling extremes. Kyla's nightmarish disorientation after being 'slated' is utterly compelling. I was gripped from the first page and can't wait to read more.'

Julie Bertagna

author of Exodus

A great presentation of a dystopian world… the entire tone of mystery is very compelling throughout the story.’

'It was one of the best books I have ever read. Slated is really original and I want to find out what happens next. There are loads of unexpected twists which I did not predict. I really like the character of Kyla because everyone else who was slated just did nothing, whereas she kept finding out more and more and unravelling the mystery. I can't wait for the next book!'

Slated is different to the books I normally read but I really enjoyed it.  Now I can’t wait to read the next part.’

'I just wanted to thank you for this amazing book. I'm 15 and very dyselexic I've never been able to read a book by myself before until slated even though it's taken me along time to read. Usually I start a book then have to get my mum to read it too me or buy it  on cd. But with Slated I just didnt want to stop reading, i didnt have time to explain it to my mum so she could read it to me or wait to see if i came on cd i was too hooked and eager to find out what was going to happen next, i literally couldn't put it down. I've really enjoyed it thank you!!'

'I really, really enjoyed it! I thought it was so fascinating and interesting i could barely put it down! I loved how the story changed and shifted as you read on, and i think it is a brilliant read for any teenager out there. Its got everything today's teenagers would look for in a book, suspense, mystery, romance, fights, and twists and turns in the story. I would highly recommend this book to pretty much everyone, even my mum is waiting in line to read it! I thought the book was fantastic and i am eagerly waiting for the second installment in the trilogy.'
