Kimberly Amato’s, "Enemy," Recognized as a Finalist in International Book Contest
Enemy is recognized for excellence in writing, design and overall market appeal.

Enemy by Kimberly Amato is a masterwork of dystopian fiction set in a brutal post-apocalyptic world where everyone is a potential enemy, and anyone could turn you into the authorities. A cautionary tale of the decay of democratic systems, the book serves as a chilling reminder that every generation discards the lessons of history at its own peril, and that of generations to come.

Enemy was named a Finalist in the Science Fiction category of the 2022 Book Excellence Awards. The awards competition is dedicated to recognizing authors and publishers in over 100 countries around the world.

Enemy was the hardest book I’ve ever written. Having others deem it worthy of being included as a Book Excellence Award Finalist was humbling. It was truly an honor to be selected,” says author, Kimberly Amato. A multi-talented artist and author, Amato’s inspiration for writing the book was to showcase a harrowing reality of what the future could be, to remind readers about the importance of learning from our past mistakes. “My goal was to show readers that history is a part of who we are. We cannot change or ignore it, but learn from it so we never repeat the negative parts again.”

The story opens on the first day of 2045, twenty years after the Final War was fought and lost by the resistance. Under the guise of world improvement, a corrupt government uses brute strength to force those deemed undesirable into devastatingly primitive roles. Scattered and weakened pockets of rebellion have slowly been defeated over the years, some betrayed from within, others by the vicious violence of those in power. The world has changed in the past two decades, and not for the better. The only hope for these less-fortunate lies in their passion to take matters into their own hands. In a bold, unforgettable way, Amato uses a strong and gritty female lead, Ellie Goldman, to take on this depraved world and inspire an uprising like the world has never seen.

The book weaves together several standout features that put it in a class of its own. Amato’s writing is fast-paced and immediate, with many scenes that will keep readers on the edge of their seats. The heroine, Ellie, is a compelling role model that readers will look up to and be inspired by. In addition, themes of authoritarianism, discrimination, freedom, and female empowerment tie the work together in a memorable way, showing that life, no matter how challenging, always finds a way to continue.

The book has received positive reviews from some of the most well-renowned authors, journalists, and reviewers around the world. Vine Voice, V.E. writes, “Enemy by Kimberly Amato is a riveting and scary kind of dystopian thriller. With the political situation of today, the turmoil, and upheaval, this story is not too implausible.” Jose Popoff writes, “Enemy is the type of story I wish I could see made into a movie. I picture all the scenes and situations in my head. I don’t bother with the cast, only what I came here for: the adventure.”

In these times of unprecedented change, Enemy serves as a harrowing reminder about the future may hold for our society. The book is available on Amazon. Fans of dystopian, post-apocalyptic fiction are encouraged to purchase their copy today.
