Blurb: In the year 2050, America has changed. Profoundly.

Homosexuality is a crime, cursing is a punishable offense, and lifestyle legislation keeps American citizens on a prescribed moral path.

The country lives in a Moral Age, all thanks to The Moral Authority, the nation’s fourth branch of government, which has held dominion for the past thirty-five years.

Yet the Moral Age comes at a price. Americans either live like mindless cattle or in fear.

Told from three points of view, Mark, the brash young hero who finds true love in the most desolate of places; Isaac, the renegade, who searches for redemption; and Samuel the dictatorial megalomaniac intent on maintaining his power, Moral Authority exposes what happens to a nation that continues to restrict, instead of broadening, civil rights.

Reviewer: Cat
Review: It’s in the future and the world has changed drastically. Moral laws are strictly enforced
This story is told form three pov, Mark a young man bent on changing the world and proving the moral laws are unconstitutional and  corrupt, Isaac caught in  both sides of the trap and Samuel the enforcer of the moral Laws bent on keeping society how it profits him best.
Wow this story is so thought provoking and scary in a way. I can so see how the world could end up like this and its frightening as heck.  The story is fast paced, full of action, twists and turns constantly and   a very surprise ending.
Recommendations: if you like dystopia, stories with lots of action, bittersweet, heart wrenching, frightening, nail-biting, betrayal, finding love, fighting for rights, this one is for you! I highly recommend it!
