Author Biography

Nadine Little lives in the Central Belt of Scotland with her partner and three gerbils. By day, she walks around in bogs and looks at poop. At night, she tortures her characters and lays waste to half of the country. When she’s not writing, she can be found reading or playing Worms on her PlayStation.

Her debut novel 'Captivity' was released on the 31st of August 2020 and is the first book in her trilogy 'The Faction War Chronicles'. The other two books and a novella are due to be released in October and November 2020. 'Captivity' has been two decades in the making and was inspired by a dream Nadine had as a teenager.

Nadine doesn't have any awards or critical acclaim (though she's sure these will come). However, she once won a painting in a short story competition. It now hangs in her study next to her writing desk.

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Captivity is a work of fiction in the dystopian, futuristic, and action and adventure sub-genres, and was penned by author Nadine Little. Written as the opening novel to The Faction War Chronicles book series, this work is recommended for adult reading audiences due to the presence of extreme content, including violence, sexual situations including assault, and the presence of explicit language used throughout. This striking debut takes us to an alternate version of Scotland where brutal factions reign supreme and our heroine Anita seeks justice for her murdered sister. What follows is a twisting tale of betrayal, vengeance, and fighting against forces that seem to be too powerful to defeat.

Author Nadine Little has produced a superb work of graphic dystopian adventure that delivers in every brutal detail of its well-developed reality. From just the first few pages you are thrust into this world and committed to it, understanding the relationships between different factions and the complex social structure of the world in which Anita tries to survive. Though it is indeed an extreme world with some very harrowing experiences, these serve to produce a hero who never shies away from the fight, and in Anita, there’s a bright future for powerful female leads in the action genre. The plot is as well-conceived as the immersive world in which it takes place, and there are some masterful heart-stopping moments that readers will never forget. Overall, I would highly recommend Captivity to fans seeking brilliantly brutal dystopia, and a promising new author in the field.
