Son of Sedonia
by Ben Chaney
Imagine growing up in the largest slum on the planet in the year 2080AD. 20 million people are your neighbors, huddled together in an ocean of rusted dwellings made from whatever Sedonia City, the towering metropolis in the distance, decides to throw away. Gang members, known as the T99s, are the heads of your community: smuggling tech, trafficking drugs, and fighting a constant guerilla war with the City’s bio-augmented EXO police force. There is little hope for survival. None for escape to a better life beyond the half-mile high Border between city and slum. This is Matteo’s world. A bright kid, but sick and weak since childhood, he is painfully dependent on Jogun: loving older brother, and hardened soldier for the T99s. When a luxury transport from Sedonia’s aerial traffic crash-lands in Rasalla, it threatens to change Matteo and Jogun’s fate forever. And all fates are connected.
The Dwellers of Rasalla, bound by family in the scrap, ashes, and dirt.
The Citizens of Sedonia, oblivious to danger in the buzzing twilight of the Neuro-Social Revolution.
The EXOs, placing themselves in harm’s way to perform their duty to protect their homes and fellow officers.
And The Ruling Elite, whose long-buried secrets and desperate plans could spell the end of civilization...or a new beginning.
Son of Sedonia is an action-filled science fiction epic with a soul and a clear message. Its characters live, breathe, suffer, and love in their different worlds, each brought to the brink as the Third-World collides with the First. Their future could well be ours.
