A wild ride through the future.
Check out these great pages from Wikipedia where I learnt, referenced and quoted about the science in the books.
Cyberpunk vs Steampunk: a dystopian post-apocalyptic battle.
What if a whole race wanted you dead, where would you go? And what if you didn’t know why? What if everything you thought you knew about yourself was wrong?
One thousand years has passed since nuclear war wiped out civilization in the northern hemisphere. The planet slowly heats and water becomes a rare resource. Out of the ruins of a devastated civilization rises a new breed of people - those with the power to control magnetism. Teslas
Sebastian, a young orphan boy from a quiet rural town, is being hunted by strange part-machine, part-human people. His only hope is Melanie, an angry, dying teenage girl who is dragged into the adventure and sets out to deliver him to the Steam Academy, even if it's just to stop him talking. Seb must confront an unknown past and fight against everything he believed in. And occasionally wash his hair.
No one said it would be easy.
Strike back. That’s what do you do when they take your family, your friends, and your home.
The steam academy is rebuilt, but the city is not the same. The land of science, the last sanctuary from the marauding cyborg army sweeping the land, is being twisted by refugees as they flood to the city for protection.
The world changes, power corrupts and the enemy becomes harder to identify.
Dark deeds are afoot, and friends are not who they appear to be as Sebastian and Melanie embark on an adventure leading them into the very heart of the enemy’s territory where they must face their darkest fears and lose everything important.
Alliances and friendships are tested as Sebastian continues to search for his mother, and Melanie makes difficult choices.
But nothing is as easy as it seems.
I've been chased across the land by cyborgs, dragons, giant spiders, and mutated zombie people. I've seen the destruction of cities, the death of my family and friends, and the fall of an empire. To be honest, I've had enough of adventure. I wish I could go home but it got blown up by the cyborgs when they came and killed everyone in my town.
As one war ends another begins, as a fleeing dictator seeks an alliance with an old enemy in the east. Politicians lie and cower as they lead the people into an infected future, trading away innocent people for a despairing grab for power. For many, the price of war becomes too great. Enemies become friends, friends become enemies, and the land continues to die.
Sebastian learns that in war there are no winners, and everything has its price. Through improbable achievements and desperate sacrifice, he turns to a dark future where the only choice is to soldier on, even if it costs everything.
I am Omega. I am the end. Welcome to the new age.
One boy and a steam-powered bike on a journey to save the world. One girl and a past she cannot escape. Two insane warlords and a prize they cannot understand. One fate will bring them together, and at the centre is Sebastian facing his destiny.
When everything is broken, when nothing is worth saving, when disease, defeat and hatred encircle you, it's time to face the darkness.
