Madman Across The Water introduces the world to the nation of Atlanteas.
Revered for its navy and merchants trading to all corners of the world, Plato’s Kingdom of Atlantis disappeared below the waves in a day and a night, taken by the Gods.
Yet, could such a civilization so quickly die?
The world of 1801 lives without knowing the survivors of Atlantis restored their nation, evolving to become a hidden civilization of massive cavern cities carved into the bedrock of the seafloor along the Atlantic Coasts of the Americas over millennia. They live lives with wonders beyond those possible even in the early 21st Century.
Xenophobic of being overrun by less technologically advanced races of the land, the Atlanteans have lived over a thousand years in peace. Yet, as the Industrial Age is rendering slavery of the Colonial Age unsustainable worldwide a parallel revolution is taking root in the world’s most advanced civilization.
Atlantean scientists Addon Greis, Shan’na Anavan, and rogue Rödd Priestess Nassiti Passur are making it possible for photonic beings, AI, to evolve to understand human feelings and emotions by connecting directly to the mind of their human companions.
To Science Council Elder Pieter Loéke, one-time Master Assassin of the Shadow Guard secret police, granting AI rights as living beings, free of control by the Conglomerates or Science Council threatens revolutionary disruption of life on Earth. Meanwhile, Lisul Pacella, the career guardian of the Atlantean National Archives, has found dark secrets of the Shadow Guard and Science Council.
Will Pieter risk the heart of his civilization and the life of his fiercely loyal protégé Vyalkeus Kyy go to stop Lisul, Addon, Shan’na, and Nassiti, even if it brings about about a disastrous civil war foretold by the Rodd Priestesses?
