It’s the future. But nearly a century ago, civilization was collapsing. Environmental catastrophe, worldwide destitution, and hostile regimes had become the order of the day. The people cried out for leaders who could deliver them from their doom. What they got was The Academy…
The FAIR Academy, an elite oligarchy of the wealthy and powerful. Ruling from their fortified capital of Aerome, they sent drone fighters to destroy all who defied their vision. And so, the world continued to fall, drawing its final, raggéd breaths.
Then came The Rust. A cybernetic pathogen that raged through human and computer alike, toppling the steel behemoths of Aerome in a matter of days.
It was amidst these most dire circumstances that Dr. Domino Magigate, nicknamed ‘The Captain’, made a discovery that changed everything. A discovery greater than fire, greater than the wheel, even greater than fossil fuels…
He called it Glide.
Glide ushered in a new era, defined by restoration and hope. Slowly but surely, the people forgot their old fears.
Michael and Madeleine have grown up in a world run by the silent, clean, affordable technology known as Glide. To them, the tyranny of the Academy is nothing more than ghost stories. But the stories come alive when they meet Samantha Biggs, nicknamed ‘The Prophet’.
Now the ashes of war are being rekindled. Mike and Maddy must prevent The Prophet from finishing the work she began so long ago. But they will not be alone. There is still one man in Seaville who remembers those times. Glide is his legacy. And The Prophet is his destiny.
