A Bloody Arrogant Power (Book 1)
No one returns from the Nameless Gone.
It is 2106, seven decades after economic catastrophe brought down our affluent times of the Public Era. Nations, airliners, governments, traffic jams, bank notes and tourists all vanished long ago. The world is idyllic for those privileged to savour its beauty.
But few are.
Donald Aldingford is lucky. A barrister, he is trusted by the ruling elite of sovereign landowners. He neither knows nor cares what goes on outside the Central Enclave of London.
Then he starts to care. A young woman from the slums enters his life. For the first time, he travels outside the Central Enclave. He sees discharges perish on the public drains. He sees glory trusts bombard the slums. These sights force him to question the rule of the sovereign elite.
But he must keep these doubts to himself. Should his sovereign masters even suspect him of disloyalty, they would despatch him to the Nameless Gone.
And then revolution breaks out. Whose side will he take?
To find out, follow the twists and turns of this intricate dystopian mystery.
The Night of Blind Ambition (Book 2)
Blood shall not stain the breast of a glory trooper…
It is 2106, seven decades after the Glorious Resolution terminated our affluent times of the Public Era. Nations, airliners, governments, traffic jams, bank notes and tourists all vanished long ago. A new kind of society has formed.
Wilderness is sacred. Secrets are power. Questions are dangerous.
Cost-Centre Lieutenant Lawrence Aldingford of General Wardian glory trust breaches the wrong secret. He gets condemned for life to the Value System, a slave-labour camp of grotesque barbarity.
No escape has ever succeeded. His will be the first. Or he will die trying…
In the outside world, times are changing. Actions once honoured as best-practice Safety Theory have become capital offenses. Even if Lawrence beats the Value System, will he dodge the hangman’s noose?
Events in The Night of Blind Ambition (Book 2) run parallel with A Bloody Arrogant Power (Book 1), adding a dramatic final twist. Encounter the world just prior to a revolutionary dawning!
