By 2242, mankind conquered life and death due to the great Neuro global network in which humans reside as part of a complex network. However, increase Global Resistance activity leads World Leader Rosario Donahi, with support from Guardian Enterprises and more important from her boss “King” Edgar Prince, to begin a campaign to silence the opposition by using the Energy Grid against them.
For two centuries since the Great Shift, Newsreel host Adam Winter, like all humanity, has lived as an eHuman. For the past five decades he lived with Miranda Valentine in New Omaha, North American Province, but she has left him. Distraught Adam soon learns that the World Government has begun a vicious assault on cities beginning with unplugging Chengdu and New Chelyabinsk with New Omaha on the list for annihilation. He joins the Global Resistance led by first eHuman Dawn and Origen who shock him with their revelations of who he is and what he means to their saving mankind.
With a nod to the Zager And Evans’ In The Year 2525, the allegorical eHuman Dawn looks deeply into what defines a human; what life is and what living means. Although the action starts slow with mass murdering occurring off page, readers will relish this character driven science fiction morality tale; as the good, the bad and the ugly compete with different visions re the future of mankind.
