After enjoying a period of prosperity and abundance, mankind now finds itself living in a state of perdition, as the great construct, The Answer Man, which brought paradise, has now turned against its creators, forcing them to fight tooth and claw for whatever scraps remain.
Through a series of journal entries and illustrations by supposed prophets, follow the vestiges of humanity as they struggle to survive the new world, faced with either fighting or falling to The Answer Mans own constructs.
There is no magic here, no sleight of hand tricks, no smoke and mirrors... just pure science, untainted by the greed of man.
Joshua Hall’s breakout novel, Liberate Me, is the first instalment in the series, and follows Isaac, Colton, and Carl, three very different people living in the same, broken world.
Isaac, a young man with little to look forward to anywhere he goes, finally takes the step to run away from home. In his attempt to escape his own problems, he soon finds himself caught up in the much larger, more violent problems of the world around him — some are mere men, others... not anymore.
With nothing to lose, Colton, the commander of the last death squad, aims to cleanse society of the undesirables. Despite his rage, he also serves a life sentence — regret.
Carl, a substance abuser, looks at everyone the same way, whether they are a stranger, friend, or partner — they are fair game. But for how much longer will he remain the strongest man in the room?
In the first instalment of Liberate Me, we followed the characters of Colton, Isaac, and Carl—three very different people living in the same broken world.
With Under-city, the prequel to Liberate Me, there is no Isaac, and no Carl, but we again follow Colton, and learn more about him and how he came to be the ruthless, cold man we know him as.
We now also follow Ryan, someone who was a secondary character in the first book, and is a man with scars on both body and mind.
