The Slated Trilogy & Prequel, Fated

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?

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 ...
