Aerovoyant: The Industrial Age, Volume One
by P. L. Tavormina
On planet Turaset, droughts ravage farmlands, and with every barrel of oil the combustion industry pumps from the ground, the climate worsens. Alphonse has refused a council seat because taking it means serving that rapacious industry. He leaves the city to seek solace in the wilderness, and there, a power to live the past awakens within him. Alphonse walks the steps of his distant ancestors on long-dead Earth. He grows plagued with memories of collapse and reaches a troubling certainty: He must secure proof of the combustion industry’s treachery, or Turaset will be next to fall.
Alphonse finds an ally in Myrta, a farmgirl who sees air, every molecule in every pulse of breath or blast of exhaust. With her talent, she can evade patrols on the industry’s grounds to help Alphonse in his mission. But people in the industry have grown wise to Myrta’s power—and now she’s marked for death.
