The Prophet's Revenge, The Glide Trilogy, Book One / Volume 1eBook - 2011
In Glide, The Prophet's Revenge, genius inventor Dr. Magigate (the Captain) must confront his shadowy legacy when innocent teen Maddy Langsley is kidnapped by an evil villain. Thus begins the Glide Trilogy set in a future world dominated by the miraculous inventions of Dr. Magigate, chief among them Glide which controls gravity. When Maddy and Mike trespass Knot Hall, a grand seaside estate that appears to be in ruin, they set in motion forces that have been pent up since the dark days of the Academy, a nefarious organization that brought civilization to the brink by unleashing war and plague in an attempt to control the dwindling natural resources of an ailing planet. The Prophet escapes her island prison just as the Neos, a new organization fashioned after the Academy, assert themselves by bending the considerable technologies of the future to their will--technologies largely devised by Captain Magigate. At last, the Captain must face not only the Prophet but also the ambiguous legacy of his inventions. Glide, The Prophet's Revenge, is a dark and quixotic look at what happens when invention reaches beyond its pale to compensate for the shortcomings of heart and soul.
