First things first – This book is currently in publication with those great people at Olympia publishing.
Unlike the others this book is a stand-alone story. The central plot revolves around four main characters who are brought together in part due to their academic expertise and in part due to their unique skills. With the goal of changing the world and protecting humanity.
A few of the main characters
Alex Walker – British Librarian (40 ish)
Alex lives alone, in a small village in Devon, has a cat, works in a library. He never goes out, has no social life, and avoids people whenever possible. That said Alex is incredibly lonely, painfully shy, and not very courageous, and has pretty much accepted that he will spend the rest of his life alone.
Special skill: Alex can enter your mind, read, and influence your thoughts.

A few final thoughts
Whilst this book is fictional, all the facts and locations are real, the characters however are fictional. I set a pace that is fast and furious so therefore I have listed events chronologically to help the reader keep pace.
The last point…
I wrote this with the hope that it may inspire thought about where we are and what might be required to change our direction
