V. A. Jeffreyabout this book: An imperiled queen. An outsider priest. A young girl. All are entwined within an ancient prophecy that will change the future and the face of the grand kingdom of Hybron forever.
Some concepts that the book tackles: In a time of water wheels, sundials and water clocks and uses of animals for transportation how do you explain surgery, cyborgs, star stations, giant floating air machines and genetic mutations of animals and humans such as animal-human hybrids? What would these things look like and how would they work? During the height of Hybron's glory people and animals are eventually used and abused by these experiments and some try to use the air machines as a means for military weaponry, like spreading toxic poisons or dusts in the air over enemy lands. These things contribute to the ban on advanced tech in certain lands on the planet.
I think it brings up the question: how do we use technology in a way that does not abuse one's fellow? Difficult since in real life technology is often used to abuse or harm others as well as help them. How does society deal with it? i suppose the core question is the nature of Man himself. Anything can be used to corrupt and harm others if the ones using it have ill intent. Motivations of the heart, I suppose, are the real issue and how technology is used comes out of that soup. I hope readers will enjoy and get something out of this story.
