Description

In this three book trilogy of interlocking stories and documents covering 100 years and three generations in a dystopic imagined future, these books attempt to answer the question "What sort of world are we leaving to our descendants?" VANDERVELDE himself is ageless, a charismatic 'Sapient' who can cut through political hypocrisy but finds love difficult. Mollie, academic high flyer and a true polymath, is his right hand woman. Amy, an aviation entrepreneur falls for Van, but will she "begin with an older man and end up with a toyboy"? Twm, a self-taught engineer invents a new transport system. Together they change the world, but 'The Warden' is watching, and other Sapients have different ideas. The series begins with an end - a world in 2120 of around 1.5 billion people who know that they must live, "as all life on earth must live, only on what the earth can provide." It is a world in which Homo Sapiens has at last learnt some sapience.show more
