The fate of billions will rest in the hands of a few.
In the region of September, the planet Oranje has been devastated, its population wiped out in a merciless attack.
The rest of September is distracted by the imminent war between the Arausio Republic and the Union of Nine, blind to everything else. Only the Curators, reclusive protectors of the Net that connects all of humanity, know the truth. Oranje is just the prelude to a full-scale invasion.
There is only one option: they must send out the Three to warn September, if people will listen. Few trust the Curators, but there are some, tired of the wars between the Union and the Republic, who can help stop this threat.
If the Three fail, all planets will suffer the same fate as Oranje. The future of September is in their hands.
Released February 22nd 2014 and unpublished in December 2014 as work began on The Word, the first of the United novels. If you bought it and want to get a free copy of The Word when it’s out email me at jacklusted[at]outlook.com.
