The year is 2121. The place is England. Alec Brassington is shooting cans off a wall, one of his favorite things to do — It helps him to relax in these unsettling times. He's looking to go to university to study mechanical engineering, but his plan is abruptly upended when he is captured by the Renegade Lords, a ruthless militia group. Fortunately, he is rescued by the Jacobin Warriors, a rival militia group, where he forms a lasting friendship with the leader, Jermaine Bake — as well as with his attractive sister, Lili. From Jermaine, Alec learns of a plot to put his country under the thumb of a foreign power.
At first, he is skeptical. But the more he learns, the more he is won over. Before he knows it, he is deeply involved, fighting alongside his new-found friends to defeat this evil plan. As battles begin raging in major cities all over the country, he becomes a vital part of the resistance. But when Jermaine is captured by the enemy, Alec isn't just fighting to save his country. He's also fighting to save his friend.
