The Relevance Series Book 1 
by Sarah Addison-Fox 
Genre: YA Dystopian Romance 

Publisher: Double Edged Sword Publishing 
Publication Date: June 28, 2019

For fans who loved Divergent comes an action-packed love story celebrating Autism and Neurodivergence that you won't want to put down.

Mallory's been hiding who she is for 18 years...

But now her terrible secret has been exposed.

Branded Irrelevant, Mallory is cut off from everything she knows. 

Irrelevants are criminals, banished to live in the old city. But in the wasteland between the new city and the old, she stumbles on Cristan.

He's bitter, paranoid, and possibly crazy...

He may also be right about everything.

To survive, Mallory must figure out who to trust, and embrace the behaviour she's been taught to deny. 

The answers may lie in a place even the most rebellious Irrelevants won't go. 


"An addictive adventure story with a Jekyll and Hyde flavour." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"A riveting YA dystopian romance that hits all the familiar beats in fresh ways, and does a great job with neurodiversity." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"The author's diverse characters in this well-written story are all perfectly developed. I was thoroughly entertained on all levels of this fast-paced novel. Irrelevant, leaves you wanting more at the end with a cliffhanger that reminded me of Terry Brooks. I'm hooked. Brava!" ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Goodreads * Amazon

Jackie continues as she taps on the tablet screen. “They came up with the label Irrelevant when they didn’t know what to do with us. We’re the weirdos, the freaks, the handicapped, the artistic, the neurologically different. We’re what they can’t control because we look at the world as being beautiful and full of colour.”
My skin goosebumps and I want to cry and wrap my arms around her and squeeze her like Jed did to me, but I feel like I’m close to understanding something about myself I’ve never understood, so I stay completely still as she flips the tablet so I can see the application Cristan showed me before.
“You see colours. You see patterns. You see beauty and wonder. And you are many, many things Mallory, but not one of them makes you Irrelevant.”

Irreverent is the second book in a continuous dystopian series. Mallory has given up the lie of her life and now is living with the rebels. Everything should be better now she is free but he is questioning everything including Cristan. Secrets and danger keep her world on a tilt.

Cristan wants to save his brother but doesn't want to become part of a greater war. He's juggling too many pieces and risking his connection with Mallory. This is one ride not to be missed.

I've read a few books by this author and I'd happily read anything she writes. An enjoyable read.

I tense my muscles and turn on my heel as I go over the plan again. It seems simple and maybe if I weren’t such a jaded cynic, who’s spent eighteen years seeing human beings at pretty much their worst, I’d see it differently.
But I don’t trust Jackson. I don’t trust Trey. And a blonde Irrelevant girl, who hums and rocks, who I’m supposed to be protecting, is at the mercy of whoever else Jackson has hiding out here.
I send Trey a glance as we enter the common area. “How many others are out here?”
Trey grabs a bag and throws it over his shoulder. He’s cagey, which makes my skin rise. “See, now here’s the thing you didn’t get to talk about with Jackson, the others, they are kind of….”
His face twists into a half smile. “Ghosts.”
I gape at him. There are almost three hundred people locked inside Unit 2B, and seven other Units in my quadrant, that are all locked up tight, with no food, or medicine getting in or out, my little brother is now in danger and he’s talking about ghosts?

Face what you fear the most....

Discovering colour after a lifetime of grey has opened Mallory's eyes to the beauty of Irrelevance.

But when she learns who Cristan is and what's he capable of, she'll be forced to question everything she feels for him...

When Cristan found rebel Irrelevants in the wastelands, he finally had the proof he needed to take down the government who think they own him.

But the rebels have secrets of their own.

Unsure of who he can trust, and with time running out, Cristan will be forced to choose between saving his brother's life or Mallory's...

No matter what he chooses, he'll have to return to the new city and go back to the place that haunts his nightmares...

Sacrifice will be inevitable in the explosive conclusion to the Relevance Trilogy.

The final curtain on a dystopian trilogy.

The last twist of events. This is a continuous series and needs to be read in order. the third book dives straight into the action and doesn’t let up. It confirms the things we already know and helps Mallory find her place in the world which is all she ever wanted.

I’m not sure why but this has a different feel to most dystopian books I’ve read. The story was interesting just different. Both main characters are complex and have flaws yet they work it out in the end.

ARC in exchange for an honest review. I like this author. Her work offers something a little different every time.

Derek looks even less pleased than I am when he gives me a clipped nod. “We can no longer overlook the infractions. The Irrelevant boy will be extracted, then Unit 2B will be made an example of.”
Fire floods my blood. I suck a breath in through my gritted teeth. I’m centimetres away from him, so close I can see a vein pulsing under his left eye. “What do you mean example of?”
The light that signals the lift is about to arrive illuminates. Time starts to slow. I notice everything as if it’s in slow motion like in the old movies I watched.
I see the tiny spot of moisture growing on his temple. The unease amongst the guards.
They’re nervous. On alert. Probably concerned I’ll go berserk again and do something stupid.
They have every right to be nervous. I’m fully prepared to do something stupid.
I inhale slowly, filling my lungs as I ready myself to move. The lift doors start to open, my pulse accelerates, eyes flicking to the closest threats.
Derek expects me to follow meekly like a lamb to the slaughter.
He thinks he knows me. Understands what I’ll do and what I value. He thinks he can manipulate me and get me to do what he wants.
He’s wrong. So, so, wrong.
