Synopsis

In the distant future, the wealthy villain Abraham Goldstein funds a top-secret project to travel to heaven and meet God. Upon reaching heaven he finds out that God is dead. He also finds the technology necessary to take gods place and become a god in the eyes of men. Many years later Abraham and his group of angels, a group of genetically engineered super soldiers, rule Eden; a world created to simulate the Holy Land during the Bronze Age. They rule with terror and fear following the ancient laws. One day, an accident turns Abraham’s closest angel Lucifer against him, an event that plants the seed of Abraham’s destruction. Meanwhile, an ancient force is conspiring in the background to make its return to our world.

About the author

Martin Lundqvist

My background I am a Swedish male born in 1985. After graduating university in 2009, I haven't achieved much career wise and I currently work as a hospitality attendant and a soccer referee. My resume is available on one of the tabs of this homepage if you can help me change that. ;) I have been in Australia since 2012, and I have been with my partner Elaine Hidayat since 2013. My writing roots When I was younger I used to write blogs for the joy of writing and for attention. Unfortunately ,my blogs were pretty controversial and caused me more problems in life than I bargained for, so eventually I gave up on blogging. In 2013 an acquaintance suggested that I wrote fiction instead of blogs. With a fair bit of enthusiasm I wrote my first book, a psychological crime thriller James Locker: The Duality of Fate back in 2013. It was an unpublished flop and I lost inspiration and couldn't be bothered to write the sequel I had started on. In late 2016, I decided to take up book writing again as it is a hobby with more potential upside than playing video games in my spare time. Lacking the enthusiasm I had in writing the first book, my Science Fiction novel The Divine Dissimulation took well over year to write, clearly because I currently write as a hobby and not as a profession. Thanks to Amazon self-publishing, The Divine Dissimulation has sold 50 copies. Unfortunately the vast majority of them I have bought myself to give away to friends and family. In spite of my lack of financial progress, I am still halfway on my third book, The Divine Insurrection. My style My personal approach to writing is that I write what I feel like writing with limited regards to what others want to read. As my works are work of fiction I tend to include controversial topics, as I am not bound to political correct self-censorship. My independence in book writing is not because I inherently want to rebel against what people want to read, but simply because I have no idea what people do want to read, hence I might as well write what I want to write and hope for the best. The writing style is quite different in my two novels. While James Locker is mostly character and dialogue driven, The Divine Dissimulation is mostly driven by concept and world building. I aim to make The Divine Insurrection a hybrid between the two extremes.
