Madman Across the Water (Histories of the Exodus Book 1)

Product Description

Madman Across The Water introduces the world to the nation of Atlanteas.

Revered for its navy and merchants trading to all corners of the world, Plato's Kingdom of Atlantis disappeared below the waves in a day and a night, taken by the Gods.

Yet, could such a civilization so quickly die?

The world of 1801 lives without knowing the survivors ofAtlantis restored their nation, evolving as a hidden civilization. Off theAtlantic Coasts of the Americas, the City-States of the Nation of Atlanteas, 7 Major Domes, and 14 Minor Domes were carved into the bedrock of these a floor over millennia. Seventy-five million people live lives using wonders not yet possible in the opening of the 21st Century. As the Industrial Age builds, slavery of the Colonial Age is becoming unsustainable worldwide - and a parallel revolution begins in the world's most advanced civilization.

Atlantean scientists Addon Greis and Shan'na Anavan are opening a new chapter for humanity, finding a path to the stars is within the grasp of their generation. They need one final tool to create this new reality, one made possible when Nassiti Passur, rogue Rödd Priestess, comes into their lives. They prepare to give birth to a forbidden form of life; photonic beings, artificial intelligence evolving to understand human feelings and emotions, connecting directly to the mind of their human companions.

From childhood, Science Council Elder Pieter Loékebelieved AI killed Pacifica Dome. Proclaimed the Master Assassin in the Shadow Guard secret police in his early career, he ascends to power, wealth, and control of disruptive technology. But he is a man who lost nearly all he ever valued.

Now the Rödd Cleric families, his long-time adversaries, threaten revolutionary disruption, granting AI rights as living beings, free of control by the Conglomerates or Science Council.

Loéke's fiercely loyal protégé Vyalkeus Kyy becomes drawn into his fight. Pieter spent decades grooming the once broken, victimized girl to become the next feared Master Assassin. Yet, he holds a dark secret over Vyalkeus - one shared with young Vicereine Fastell with Lan'na Anavan, Shan'na's twin, on the asteroid miner Nile Delta.

Lisul Pacella, the career guardian of the AtlanteanNational Archives, has found dark secrets of the Shadow Guard and ScienceCouncil. Threatened by Loéke's Cabal, can she survive to bring their crimes to justice?.

How far will Pieter go to stop Lisul, Addon, Shan'na, and Nassiti? Will he risk the heart of his civilization, those on the Nile Delta, and the life of the woman he loves, to exact vengeance for a tragedy which already cost him his family?

After peace for a thousand years, will this become the civil war foretold by the Rodd Priestesses?
