AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In the year 2010 after the Invasion of Heaven, human psychonauts trample the sacred fields of Heaven, and the angels retreat to higher altitudes to avoid the contamination of the physical.

'In the Year 2520 the Millenial Wars have reduced the Earth to a devastated battleground.

'In the year 3000 the evil Humen are determined to destroy the power of Heaven, while the Residuals, a primitive race of people, live fearfully in the ruins of civilisation.

'In the midst of this hatred and fear is born a unique friendship that could change the course of history.

'The Residual Ferren befriends Miriael, a warrior angel stranded on Earth. Together they must survive hostile forces that defy the imagination, and uncover the horrific truth behind the Humen.' (Publisher's blurb)

y separately published work icon New World Orders in Contemporary Children's Literature : Utopian Transformations Clare Bradford , Kerry Mallan , John Stephens , Robyn McCallum , Houndmills : Palgrave Macmillan , 2008 Z1559477 2008 selected work criticism 'New World Orders shows how texts for children and young people have responded to the cultural, economic, and political movements of the last 15 years. With a focus on international children's texts produced between 1988 and 2006, the authors discuss how utopian and dystopian tropes are pressed into service to project possible futures to child readers. The book considers what these texts have to say about globalisation, neocolonialism, environmental issues, pressures on families and communities, and the idea of the posthuman.' - Back cover.
