NEW CITY ONE is dominated by robots, cyborgs, mutants and a sardonic super-intelligence called Aycee. Downtown is built high up on an exclusive platform where it is so competitive that the intrepid humans were pushed out to The Slices where they must take big risks to get back in the game.
Super Highway, Deep River, and Old Railroad cut through the city from different points around the compass, dividing it like a huge pizza into six political sections called The Slices.
The Slices compete with each other for resources, and in particular they all compete most fiercely with Downtown.
Outside the city proper is The Wilding where mutant plants and animals were released in an effort to re-green the planet and slow global warming.
This is not working out well. Danger – stay away.
The villainous organization called FEAR is always coming up with ever more innovative ways to threaten the city. Yes, that’s their name, don’t wear it out. Depending on who is doing the telling, it might stand for Fiendishly Evil Awesome Rascals, or not.
Only DISRUPT stands in their way. This was originally the Department Involving Secret Really Unusual Powerful Technologies, but nobody could come up with a better name so it stuck. The Agents of DISRUPT are a special breed who are always on the lookout for new talent who can help save the world.
Which brings us to…
Lane, Grav, Mod, Will, Tek, and Jean live their individual lives within their own separate stories in different Slices of the city. They’ve each mastered a unique technology and have a different goal that they think will bring success and happiness. An opportunity to get what they want arises, then FEAR obstructs their path and DISRUPT pushes them to the limit. Each of them embarks on their own hero’s journey and is forever changed.
Men in Black meets Ghost in the Shell in a post-cyberpunk future. The Agents of DISRUPT novels are a set of six technothrillers for young adults (and everyone else) to enjoy. They are not a series and can be read in any order for a ‘create your own adventure’ experience.
