Book One of After the Pulse
It’s the year 2138, just over 60 years after the world went dark. Cities lie in ruin and gangs and cults control their own territories across the southwest of what used to be Western Australia. After mankind has recovered from near-extinction, society has reformed itself under the inventive technology and leadership of the Company. Through a quirk in electromagnetics, the Company has unlocked the brain’s telepathic abilities while vehicles are powered by mag-engines, perpetual-motion machines, and the tenuous peace is kept by the Guard and their infamous plasma rifles, the most powerful hand-held weapon that’s ever existed.
Employed as a Psi by the Company, 20-year old Jatz comes home to find his father murdered, and he’s next. He’ll fight for his life against corrupt Edge Guards and hunt for his father’s killer within the Company while a fugitive from the dangerous and secretive inner cabal, The Council. As his telepathic powers grow in ways no human has seen before, he’ll find more questions than answers about the Council and the complex history it has with his entire family.
Dukan has kept his telepathic abilities hidden while doing hard labour for a crime he didn’t commit, but is a dangerous pawn in an even more dangerous game. He’ll fight for his freedom in any way he can, and make sure that those who have wronged him all pay.
Jatz and Dukan’s paths will cross during their quests for revenge, in more ways than either could have imagined, and together they’ll eventually uncover the truth about the Council, and themselves.
