The first three books in the dark, haunting, dystopian Humanity Series have been brought together in one digital collection.
① The Warm Machine
Like 144,000 other men, the date Scott Beck will die is tattooed on his left palm.
Unlike 143,999 other men, his date is wrong. But to prove it, he must die.
When the first dates are shown to be accurate, many begin to question whether the deaths have been predicted, or are due to the intervention of an administrative religious organisation called the Watchers.
If Scott Beck does nothing, an AI powerful enough to predict the deaths of everyone on the planet will bring about the Rapture, and the end of humanity.
Combining dystopian, post-apocalyptic, and cyberpunk fiction, The Warm Machine is the first novel in the five-part Humanity Series, depicting a near-future in which humanity is on the brink of annihilation.
It’s not the end of the world … only humanity.
② The Dead Horizon
Some call it the Rapture. Others call it a global genocide. Whatever it was, only thousands of survivors remain on Earth.
When Scott Beck finds himself alive after the Rapture, along with only a few survivors, he retreats to the Lake District in the north of England. Soon after, he finds himself the reluctant guardian of a young woman and on the run from Mathew, a religious megalomaniac, and his Watchers, who are as determined as ever to send every human soul to heaven.
The AI, controlled by Mathew, informs Scott of a dead horizon, past which its view of the deterministic universe vanishes, meaning it can no longer see the future.
Scott, along with what remains of humanity, having lived with the paradox of knowing his own demise, must once again embrace freedom and take hold of the smallest offering of hope if he and humanity are going to survive.
③ The Violet Dawn
In a time of deceit, the truth is more important than ever. But the truth, with humanity on the verge of extinction, is a luxury Scott Beck cannot afford.
Eighteen years after the Rapture, there are only a few thousand survivors left on the planet, all living in Britain. Scott, along with his adopted daughter, Eve, have kept a small band of survivors safe from Mathew and a religious organisation called the Watchers, intent on sending every last soul to heaven.
But when Scott discovers dozens of dead bodies, recently killed by something called The Violet Dawn, he is confronted once again with the truth behind Eve’s violet eyes.
In possession of what remains of an AI that could either destroy or save humanity, Scott faces an impossible decision. If he is to help humanity survive, he must confront the darkness of human extinction.
