What would you do if you lived in a world where your every move was scrutinized by your own personal artificial intelligence–a world where everything is regulated, from power usage to relationships–a world where everything you thought you knew turned out to be a lie?
Welcome to Tisaia – The last hub of modern civilization in a world left scorched by the nuclear fires of the Biomass Wars. Surrounded by a fortress of steel walls and protected by a fierce and loyal Council of Royal Knights, Tisaia seems relatively safe for state workers. A plentiful supply of Biomass powers their homes and food is abundant. But securing the city against the horrors beyond the walls has come at a heavy price for the average citizen and there are whispers of a revolution.
Spurious Timur is one of the lucky state workers helping keep the wheels of prosperity turning in Tisaia. When he meets members of a rebel faction the state has deemed a terrorist organization, he begins to understand he may hold the key to restoring Tisaia to a just and free state. But doing so will come at a great cost; both to Spurious and those he cares about, because in Tisaia nothing is ever what it seems. And as more of his past begins to surface, he is faced with the ultimate decision–on which side of the revolution should he fight?
In his debut novel, Nicholas Sansbury Smith adds his voice to the growing field of Dystopian literature. Set in the near future, The Biomass Revolution is the story of a post-apocalyptic future still healing from the wars of the 21st century.
