by Malcolm J. Wardlaw
Death by Decent Society Book 1 of 5: Sovereigns of the Collapse by Malcolm J. Wardlaw Since the financial Armageddon, it’s been guns, gold and lots of slaves.It is 2106. Seventy years have passed since our times collapsed in complete banking disaster. No one cares about over-population, mass extinctions or climate change any longer. The world is a post-apocalyptic paradise—for a few.One of those ‘few’ is Donald Aldingford, a star barrister in his mid-thirties, a man on the threshold of career triumph. But through ill luck, he gets shot down and jailed for trespassing into private airspace. This event changes the course of his life. He picks up disturbing rumours about his younger brother Lawrence, who disappeared without trace ten years earlier aged seventeen.After being repatriated, Donald takes a deeper interest in the world around him. He lifts stones. He peers behind dusty curtains. What he finds is horrifying and repugnant—the dreams of madmen come true. As he closes on the mystery of his disappeared brother, he pierces the last, most dangerous veil of a rotten society.Sovereigns of the Collapse is a five-part dystopian saga for those curious about the coming dark age. The story flows through ongoing action with ‘to be continued’ style endings (not cliffhangers). The series contains adult themes and is not recommended for the under-16s.
Robin's Review: This story is about a dystopian sovereign world set in “Great Britain” after a great economic collapse and the caste system that has born from it. Donald Aldingford is the main character in a sovereign state made up a unfair caste system. It goes on to show Donald’s progress and understanding of the unjust society he lives in. It was fast paced and well written with an fascinating plot that progressed with an interesting world built and the growth of the main character.
