Description

Beta Reader Comments

'Overlord's overall plot was phenomenal.'

'I see in your work the natural talent of a best seller, easily on par with a Tom Clancy novel.'

'Your grasp of the political sphere was refreshing and entertaining to read.'

'Overlord is essentially the bastard British love child of Ender's Game and The Bourne Identity.'

Overlord Description

The year is 2030 and for the first time in history a being more intelligent than humankind walks the Earth. Eva is the beautiful AI masterpiece of the brilliant Professor Szymanski. She looks and sounds human, learning every second of every day with unrelenting drive. For Senator Roebuck, Eva is an existential threat to the prosperity of workers and society itself. His answer is the AI Safety Act, to secure American jobs and head off the threat of super-intelligent AI.

On the other side of the world, the British Army have been trialling military robots in the fight against the Islamic Caliphate. The extremists have overrun vast swathes of the oil-producing Middle East, cutting off the energy supplies and trade routes Britain needs to thrive. The country stands alone, having left the EU in 2019 and the end of NATO eight years later. The war drags on, costing thousands of soldiers' lives and aiding the British Independence Party's rise to power in 2040. It becomes a national imperative to transform the army, which turns to the latest military robots on a colossal scale.

Victor Zane and British Defence Systems -- world leaders in military robotics -- are counting on the huge order of humanoid infantry units. They will save many soldiers' lives, create fortunes for the few and jobs for the many. But is there another purpose for such a powerful military machine?

Russia has profited from billions of dollar of weapons sales to the Islamic Caliphate and does not intend to stop now. With America and China's token interest and energy autarky, the forces of the Islamic Caliphate seem unassailable. But if Britain can succeed with her new army, the rewards will be huge and shape geopolitics for generations to come.

MI5 try to thwart Russia's attempts to steal Britain's advanced robotics technology, but their agent, Sophie Walsh, has a different theory. As events unfold, will they discover who the enemy is and what they are plotting?

Can anything stop the greatest robotic war machine humankind has ever made? Will Britain return to greatness or will the dark forces at work forever subjugate the country? Immerse yourself in this complex techno-thriller of intrigue, espionage, and action and discover the seismic shifts in power that are at stake.
