The first in an exciting new science fiction series by Far North Queensland author Laura Kinch. Rebecca is tired of her job in the City. The System’s rules don’t allow asking too many questions and she’s close to losing her job. Then she meets Jason Gray, who tells her she’s a Controller – she has the ability to control machinery with her mind. At first, Rebecca scoffs. But when her apartment is attacked by a machine called a Peacekeeper and she finds herself hunted by the cops and a Controller called Valerie Chase, she has no choice but to follow Jason to the world Below. Below, Rebecca discovers her life in the City has been a bubble of security. She knew nothing of the massive mines and burnt-out workers who live there, managed by System Controllers who’ll wipe out a village at the first hint of production loss. And amongst all this: Jason, his resistance fighters, and their warship Leviathan. Jason says Rebecca’s talents are ‘special’, that he needs them for an important task. But the man is slow to reveal exactly what this task is. After being misinformed her entire life, can Rebecca trust Jason’s mission will make a difference for those living Below? It’s starting to sound like something much more personal.
