The Loop

Written by Ben Oliver

In a dystopian future, prisons are run by artificial intelligence where governments use young people for energy and experiments. One group of teens on death row in the Loop tries to push back their execution date by opting to be used in medical experiments that only delay their sentence by six months. Life takes on a daily repetition of eating, sleeping, and mind boring numbness, until things start to go wrong in the prison and Luka Kane starts his quest for freedom from this repetitive purgatory. “A terrifying futurescape at the heart-stopping intersection of The Matrix and The Maze Runner,” so gear up for an exciting read perfect for fans of The Fifth Wave and Maze Runner.
