New Dawn (eBook)
de Attila Orosz
Sobre o livro
A man is running for his life. An army is deployed to hunt him down. He has no right to be there. He has no right to live. He is not considered human.
A man is on a mission. He is looking for the hunted, for those denied humanity. He is trying to save them, to deliver them to safety, to give them a chance of life. But can he succeed?
The year is 2058. The world's powers have been stabilised, the citizens of the newly formed super-states are safe, living in peace. But safety is a privilege of the fortunate few. For those, born on the wrong side of The Wall surrounding the United States of Europe, peace must be paid for; and the price is higher than ever before.
When fate brings the two men together, they struggle against time, hostile forces, their own prejudices and each other, towards a conclusion, neither of them would have thought possible.
New Dawn is a protest against the rise of racism, the political exploitation of ignorance fuelled by fear, and the glorification of war; wrapped in an action packed, constantly accelerating chase.
Told from different perspectivres, the story shows all sides of an unfolding disaster. There are no pretenses or clichés; the characters confront each other and their own prejudices, while struggling to accept a reality that is widely different than their deepest rooted beliefs.
The story is set in a dystopian near future, which symbolises the ills of contemporary society. From the rise of extreme right-wing populism, through the inaptitude of a liberalism that is not willing to take action or even responsibility, to the oft-unspoken prejudices found in all aspects of everyday life, the story’s world and characters are based on our present time.
