Synopsis

Guided by her prophetical visions, Keila takes on the oppressive Terran Council. But can the source of her visions be trusted?

The Divine Sedition takes place in the year 2872 and follows young Martian rebel Keila Eisenstein in her fight against the oppressive Terran Council.

In a vision, Keila realizes that to reach her goal to free her people, she first has to liberate the asteroid colony Eden from the tyrant Abraham Goldstein. She succeeds and takes control over Eden.

Having gained control over Eden, Keila fakes her own death to fool the Terran Council officer assigned to detain her, Rear Admiral Bjorn Muller.

Keila decides to use Eden as her base of operations deceptively turning the Terran Council members against each other. Keila faces overwhelming odds trying to take down the mighty Terran Council that has been dominating the solar system and oppressed the majority of humanity for over 500 years.

Keila does, however, have one trump on hand against these overwhelming odds: Her mysterious divine connection.

Her visions are leading her way, and with access to the late Abraham Goldstein's technology, Keila can unveil secrets that will help her free humanity from the oppression of the few elite plutocrats dominating all of humankind.

But, her connection comes at a price. Thus, are the Zetans, controlling Keila as a puppet, indeed better than the Terran Council oppressors she seeks to replace?

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 It was an unpublished flop and I lost inspiration and couldn't be bothered to write the sequel I had started on.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.
