The Party was the corrupt remains of a government that grew too big, collapsing under its own weight and taking its people down with it. After several centuries of unlimited power, the Party is starting to crumble.
Mark, who was formerly known only by a number, escaped the Party and found a new family and a new love in the frontier beyond the corrupt government’s reach. After going back to rescue his sister from the government, he must return to his adopted village while trying to avoid capture by the evil Felix, the army official who is set on revenge.
If If he can somehow elude Felix and his band of soldiers, does he dare take on the immoral government in order to save its citizens from slavery or worse?
Welcome to the future. Imagine a society in which government is run by a tyrannical regime that controls all social and economic activity. There are two classes of people: the haves (Party Members) and the have-nots (non-Party Members).
This is the world into which 4716262 is born. When the Party separates the ten year old from his twin sister, he promises to rescue her one day. Seven years later, he becomes privy to a long lost journal that describes how a burgeoning government usurped basic rights, such as freedom and privacy, from its citizens. With the assistance of a high-ranking Party Member, he escapes to a far western land that is not controlled by the Party.
Somehow, he survives a bitter winter before he is seriously wounded by a band of marauders and nursed back to health by village people that live a life of simplicity. He is adopted by the small community and falls in love with the headstrong daughter of the village chief. He is happier than he has ever been in his life, but he cannot forget his promise. Will his crusade to liberate his sister lead to the demise of an evil regime and a second chance for mankind, or is the human race doomed forever?
Everything dies. It’s a simple truth; everyone knows it. What no one knows is what lies in store after you pass on. I had always thought that after death there was only peace –it was the final ending. But it seems that the reality is quite the opposite. When I emerged in my new post-death world, I was suddenly expected to bear the weight of the world on my shoulders (and I’m hardly even exaggerating), and if I don’t, I will not only risk the lives of everyone still living, but I might also get to have the awesome experience of being devoured by demons. Wish me luck, because it seems that death is where all the action is.
