A drowning at sea and a cellphone receiving cryptic messages from the future propel 17-year-old Nathaniel into a search through time for his older brother Sebastian, missing after attempts on his life. Guided by a series of old diagrams to the site of a strange Garden destroyed in an earthquake, Nat discovers he himself has become the hunted, and Seb is someone marked with a code.
From the wild seas of Tasmania to ancient Greece through to New York City in 1911, Nat and his fellow-traveller Norika flee their pursuers into a Network where no one, including Seb, is quite as they seem. When they finally discover their connection to the long-ago Survivors and their Descendants, Nat faces a revelation about his brother that affects not only his future, but his past.
A science fiction thriller set in the near future and the ancient past, Akropolis considers an alternative ‘us’ and asks the question, what if we’re not who we think we are, what if ‘we’ are ‘them’? The book is currently unavailable.

“The Age of Akropolis is upon us…
I loved this book; it is so beautifully written, obviously well researched and the plot was full-on and fast-paced. The twists throughout were great, and with a mix of science fiction, fantasy, thriller, suspense and even historical fiction, it will appeal to a lot of people.”
