The Alliance (The Registry #3)
To overthrow a brutal dictator and free her country, a brave young woman will risk her life and liberty to spark a revolution in this explosive final installment in Shannon Stoker’s electrifying Registry trilogy
“Beautifully written . . . a chilling and shocking look at a futuristic America that will stay with you long after you close the book.” —Jennifer L. Armentrout on The Registry
Mia Morrissey fled to Mexico to escape the government marrying her to someone she did not love. Now, she’s going risk everything so that the rest of America can be free.
Going undercover as part of a diplomatic mission, Mia returns to America. But life there is more dangerous than ever as the walls grow ever taller, and the forgotten country faces its most ruthless leader yet, Grant Marsden…a shadow from Mia’s past. With the help of Andrew, Carter, and other members of the subversive group Affinity, she embarks on a perilous journey to defeat Grant, bring down the government, and destroy the Registry once and for all.
When a terrible betrayal exposes the operation, Mia discovers that her enemies have used her—and so have her friends. Alone and frightened, she’s uncertain who to trust—or whether the mission is worth what she’s sacrificing.
With the fate of her friends and the future of her country on the line, Mia knows that her next step may be the last for her . . . and America.
I have really good balance and sometimes I subconsciously stand on one leg. My husband says I look like flamingo.

What is your work space and writing routine like? Share a pic of your work area if you like 🙂
I have a “writing room” but usually end up in the kitchen for some reason! I usually write at nights, probably working the most from 5- 10 pm. Friday nights tend to be when I get the bulk done.
Is there a genre you’ve yet to write but would like to try one day? –
I would love to try to write horror, but just don’t think I am scary enough.
Dystopian is a popular genre at the moment, what drew you to it? –
I think the freedom to bend the contemporary world. It’s not a landscape created from scratch like with fantasy, but more a different version of where we are living today.
For new readers could you tell us about The Registry series please? –
The Registry series is about a young woman named Mia Morrissey who decides she’s had enough with the predominantly patriarchal society she lives in, where women are traded like goods. With little to no knowledge of the outside world she enlists her father’s worker, Andrew to assist her. Even though the world they live in favors males, young men are seen as having no value whatsoever. The series follows these two as they try to break free of the world they live in.
What do readers have to look forward to next? –
I am working on something more contemporary at the moment. It centers around a young man, who may or may not have committed a vicious crime and the consequences that follow.
