This is how the controversial futuristic epic series begins….75 years from now.
Thy Kingdom Fall (After Eden Series, Book 1) is the provocative, sci-fi thriller by author Austin Dragon—a dramatic mix of politics, religion, technology and intrigue.
In 2089, a former skin-runner-turned-star-reporter quietly investigates the Washington DC murder of the most powerful political king-maker in the nation. It is just the tip of a wider conspiracy and the start of a chain of events leading to a world catastrophe.
The world is a very different place:
Western Europe has fallen to the Islamic Caliphate. Israel is gone. Eastern Europe has merged with Russia. Beijing runs the anti-American Chinese-Indian Alliance.
The US Constitution was found unconstitutional and replaced. Presidential term limits are gone. The culture wars are over.
The three-term American president is obsessed with keeping the nation safe at all costs—by ending religiosity.
But the Resistance stands in his way.
It all leads to the explosion of World War III—a hell we have never seen before.

Good Start to Series
Be aware of the political and religious topics that are in this book and series. Also realize that this book was published in January 2014, long before the current political climate around the world. Enjoy Thy Kingdom Fall for the well written FICTIONAL book it is. Could this possibly be the world in another 70 years? Yes it could be. But we could just as easily be living on the moon or Mars by then too.
Thy Kingdom Fall is the first book in The After Eden Series. While this is part of the series it can be read as a standalone, though it is clearly not the end of the storyline. There is violence.
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat all of that info here. The author did a good job of giving readers an overview of what this book and series is and will be about. Much of the book is set in the late 21st century and the world is, in some ways, radically different from our world today. Tek and drugs are almost everywhere in the United States, especially in the major cities.
Some readers will find the format of this book confusing due to all the multiple viewpoints and the back and forth on the timelines. But if you pay attention to the headings (which tell you the date, time, location) you will be fine and keep track of the storylines. This is definitely a series that I will keep reading!
