Unborn by Rachel McLean – Book Review

Unborn by Rachel McLean – Book Review



She killed her unborn child. The punishment will fit the crime.

America, 2026.

Feminism has been defeated.

Equality is a memory.

And abortion has been criminalized.

Three women find themselves on the wrong side of the law.

Kate, carrying the child of a sexual predator.

Grace, whose baby will be born with a fatal deformity.

And Cindee: abused, abandoned and pregnant.

Can these three very different women come together to fight an oppressive system and win their freedom?

Find out by reading Unborn, a chilling dystopia combined with a gripping legal thriller.



This is a dystopian tale that feels all too real in its plausibility. The fact some states in the US are already making laws to limit a woman’s decisions relating to her own body makes this a terrifying possible reality.

It is the story of 3 women who are affected by a law that criminalises abortion for ANY reason and results in imprisonment, even a miscarriage has to be proven. This is a world similar to that in A Handmaid’s Tale in that women’s reproductive rights are controlled by men, but this is also a legal drama as these laws are challenged. It’s thought provoking, anger inducing and totally gripping from start to finish.

Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for the opportunity to participate in this blog tour and for the promotional materials and a free copy of the ebook. This is my honest, unbiased review.

Author Bio –


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.
