Hemispheres is the new cyberpunk novel from Mark Everglade.
In a world where light is currency…
Light is big business on Evig Natt, where it’s always dark and fireflies are the only legal source of light. They’re also used for currency, leaving the impoverished to live in the shadows of the wealthy.
Severum Rivenshear is hired by the government to stop the Kontractor, a woman speeding the planet’s rotation to bring light to rich and poor alike, until his beliefs and life shatter while witnessing the abuses of power.
Together, their journey will take them from space to cyberspace, from reality to virtual reality, as they save the last refuge of humanity. In a time of war, they must bring balance to the hemispheres, even if Severum must betray the very system he’s sworn to protect.
Written in the spirit of William Gibson and Neal Stephenson, Hemispheres proves that cyberpunk is back in this epic, new release.
Targeted Age Group:: 18-50
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Hemispheres was inspired by the polarization in our country that has created a dystopia right at home. I wanted to write a book where one side didn't have all the answers and they both had to rely on one another to fix the ecological crisis at hand.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Each character had to be representative of a different faction of society, the religious order, the dystopian regime, the sentient alien species, technology, etc. But in essence, the factions themselves are the real characters, their dynamics and relationships as they work to understand their relationship to changes in the natural environment.
Driving a stolen hovercraft near the speed of sound draws attention like the buzzing of a thousand fireflies, so Thalassa cruises under the radar, drawing no red alerts. Downloads surge through every mind-channel as drone flight vectors cross a map. A complete awareness of all smart technology floods into her, yet parts of her mind read, No Admittance – Access Denied.
