"Hinkens‘ first book in The Underground Series, Immurement, is a dystopian based science fiction thriller. It is very well edited and the young adult storyline is a fast read full of action. The post-apocalyptic world is vividly described and its characters well developed. Twists and turns are well placed and somewhat surprising. There is an interesting mixture of characters, young and old, clone and deviations, and survivors and scientists. " - Goodreads, Chessy

The earth’s core overheats. The sovereign leader vanishes. A young girl is the survivors’ only hope …
What little land is habitable is patrolled by cutthroat gangs of escaped subversives, but that’s not the greatest threat facing sixteen-year-old Derry Connelly, her brother Owen, and a ragged band of Preppers holed up in a bunker in the Sawtooth Mountains. Mysterious hoverships operated by clones are targeting adolescents for extraction.
Owen, is one of the first to disappear. To save him, Derry must strike a deal with the murderous subversives, and risk a daring raid to infiltrate the heart of the extraction operation.
But will the rookie leader falter when forced to choose between her brother and a clone who ignites something inside her she didn’t know was possible?
"Leaving plenty of room for more, the first book in this series is an attention-grabbing, fast-paced read. If you love a dystopian adventure, then you’ll probably find stuff to enjoy here. I did, though I don’t think Derry and her love triangle alone would be enough to draw me back for more. Here’s hoping that Derry continues to live in interesting times." - Goodreads, Book Gannet
