AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'"The future has arrived. Fast forward 150 years. In a bleak future world, the sparse population in the United Kingdom has returned to a pre-industrial era, nature having reclaimed the cities. Abalus: In the Beginning looks back at the year 2015, when a professor documented how American scientists were developing a biomechanical life form capable of adapting, as part of a major research project to find more efficient ways to reclaim and recycle Earth’s finite mineral resources. The pressure was on. 150 years later the world consists of re-education centers that suppress the events of the past. Fifteen-year-old Abalus has just witnessed the slaying of his father, and he is incarcerated with his mother in a re-education centre. Abalus escapes and embarks on a quest for forbidden knowledge. Searching for the truth about his ancestors, he discovers the professor’s journals from long ago. Will he survive? Will the future of mankind survive?' (Publication summary)
