'Cyberpunk vs Steampunk: the battle is on. Welcome to the evolution. Book 1 in the award winning science fiction series, the Tesla Evolution. Set a millennia in the future, nuclear war has wiped out much of civilization in the northern hemisphere. The planet has slowly been getting hotter and water is becoming a rare resource. Out of the ruins of a civilization that has collapsed in on itself, have arisen a new breed of people - those with the power to control magnetism. Seb, a young orphan boy from a quiet rural town, is being hunted by strange part-machine, part-human people. His only hope is Melanie, an angry, dying teenage girl who is dragged into the adventure and sets out to deliver him to the Steam Academy, even if it's just to stop him talking. Seb must confront an unknown past and fight against everything he believed in. And occasionally wash his hair. Set in the only continent to survive the annexation of civilization and nuclear fallout, the great, hot southern land is a world of pain and desperation, where the only form of currency worth having is water. Aimed at a teen audience.' (Publication summary)

'Book Two of the Tesla Evolution. When friends fail and cities fall, when enemies grow strong taking everything you treasure, what can you do? Strike back. Sebastian and Melanie crusade against the cyborg enemy, risking everything against betrayal's cruel bite. The Steam Academy is being rebuilt, but the city is not the same. The fortress of science-the last sanctuary from the marauding cyborg army sweeping the land-is being twisted by refugees as they flood to the city for protection. The world changes, power corrupts, and the enemy becomes harder to identify. Dark deeds are afoot, and friends are not who they appear to be as Sebastian and Melanie embark on a mission that leads them into the very heart of the enemy's territory, where they must face their darkest fears and risk losing everything that is important to them.'

'Book three in the award-winning science fiction series, the Tesla Evolution. "I've been chased across the land by cyborgs, dragons, giant spiders, and mutated zombie people. I've seen the destruction of cities, the death of my family and friends, and the fall of an empire. To be honest, I've had enough of adventure. I wish I could go home but it got blown up by the cyborgs when they came and killed everyone in my town." As one war ends another begins, as a fleeing dictator seeks an alliance with an old enemy in the east. Politicians lie and cower as they lead the people into an infected future, trading away innocent people for a despairing grab for power. For many, the price of war becomes too great. Enemies become friends, friends become enemies, and the land continues to die. Sebastian learns that in war there are no winners, and everything has its price. Through improbable achievements and desperate sacrifice, he turns to a dark future where the only choice is to soldier on, even if it costs everything. Includes zombies!' (Publication summary)
