There is no utopia in our future!
Rising Leviathan. The third novel in the science fiction and international thriller in the After Eden Series.
The year is 2096–just three years until the 22nd century!
A Russian summit in Saint Petersburg with all the superpowers: America, the Islamic Caliphate, the Chinese-Indian Alliance. The Russian President inexplicably…dies. Or was it murder? One moment world peace was in sight, now world war seems unstoppable. Will the Russian Bloc (Russian and Eastern Europe) erupt in civil war? Or will it be a global war–or both?
As one leader falls, a deadly power rises. New enemies. New conspiracies. New dangers.
The march to the explosion of World War III continues–the first global war of the Tek Age, a hell we have never seen before.
Rising Leviathan is book #3 in the epic After Eden series–a dramatic mix of politics, religion, technology, and intrigue set eighty years in the future.
˃˃˃ “The addition that proves the series has teeth”
“…the third After Eden novel shines right along side the other two, and proves he can create a series worth following. Balancing genres in fiction is a tricky thing, and after three books the mix of science fiction and political thriller still runs on all cylinders. The book might be a Ford engine in a Chrysler body but it still gets down the highway at top speed. In this book we are getting closer to World War III, with the various quasi religious groupings lining up their various alliances. This one clearly sets the stage for more After Eden novel as the first war using Tek approaches.”
˃˃˃ Fantastic Series – I Can't Wait for the Next Book!”
Rising Leviathan is a great addition to the story and full of interesting characters you're gonna love and some you'll love to hate. Religion and politics guide this series, and if you usually shy away from such novels, I think you'll still enjoy this series. These books aren't preachy and they explore the world on the brink of a world war, all from the different points of view of the politicians and world leaders along with the religious population, the Faithers. And Austin Dragon didn't leave out those fringe religions, including vampires.
While the story line is complex, it is easy to follow while still engaging, and it really keeps you guessing, trying to figure out how everything is related. With plenty of twists and surprises, Rising Leviathan is a very thought provoking, well researched book. It's clear that Austin Dragon really did his homework and I think he really kept with the spirit of each religion when creating the characters.
