ONE OF US is a psychological dystopian thriller and book three in the Village series and sequel to Sea of Lies by author Rachel McLean. While this book would read well as a standalone book, I recommend reading all three novels in this trilogy in sequence, to gain a better appreciation of the development of the characters as well as their journey. Having loved the previous two books, I was looking forward to reading the third novel in this series.

The books in the Village Series include:

Before I give you my review, I have to say that I have read and reviewed the previous books in this series and I highly recommend you all to read the first and second book before this one to get the full experience.

Yet again, I'm back to the village and to see what the characters are doing now and with this new novel in the series, I'm left overwhelmed with thoughts and emotions. That's the power of Rachel McLean's writing. She can make us focus so much on the story that it almost feels like we

I highly recommend you read the previous two books before you read this one as the story continues.

As this is the last in the trilogy I’m wary about saying much about the storyline as I don’t wanna give anything away.
I was happy to read more of the characters yet sad to see this trilogy end. I will say I wasn’t disappointed with the conclusion.

This is a really well written story that captivated me from start to finish. I’m certainly looking forward to reading more from this author in the futur

Book 3 in 'The Village' series set in near-future North Yorkshire, is fast-paced, suspenseful with an undercurrent of menace.

Character empathy is easier, if you read the first two books in the series, 'Thicker Than Water' and 'Sea of Lies'. Dystopian, it is set in a village founded after traumatic floods, and rising sea levels caused devastation, necessitating people to leave their homes and become refugees.

The final book is set in the aftermath of traumatic events involving outsiders and the
What a great read! I am impressed by how once I started reading this story it was like going back to the village and I remembered characters and events from the earlier stories, 'Thicker than Water' and 'Sea of Lies', despite it being more than four months since I read them. It is set in the future, after catastrophic floods and rising sea levels have changed life as we know it.

This is the story of survivors who have banded together in a coastal North Yorkshire holiday community where they're st

This is #3 in The Village series and while it can be read as a standalone, you will miss out on quite a bit of a great story.

There is now a slightly uneasy peace in the village, but then there’s a gas exploration in nearby Filey….do they go to help?

The villagers discuss offering sanctuary to anyone that needs help, but we know how that ended last time….with kidnap and death….

But then they are attacked…again….Jess loses someone close to her, and threats come in the form of a brick through a wind

Rachel McLean has become one of my favorite authors this year. Her series, the Village trilogy, is fantastic. I have loved each book, and One Of Us is no different! Her writing is captivating, and I read this in one sitting, on the edge of my seat.

Thrilling, addicting…these are just some of the adjectives I can use to describe One of Us. The underlying themes of belonging and acceptance. They were very prevalent in this novel. It made me think, it kept me glued to the pages, and I felt like I wa

My name's Rachel McLean and I write thrillers that make you think.

What does that mean?

In short, I want my stories to make your pulse race and your brain tick.

Do you often get through a thriller at breakneck pace but are left with little sense of what the book was really about? Do you sometimes read literary fiction but just wish something would damn well happen?

My books aim to fill that gap.
