Dive into the dystopian world of Neo Mars!

Lex, a part-time roboticist from a family of Empyrean refugees, is the lone hope of her family to overcome Graexian oppression and earn them a place above the steel skies, where the air is clean, and the people rich.

Yet when every door is shut, and every opportunity closed, Lex decides to forge her own path of blood and bone. With a talking battle-droid at her side, insane cyborgs in her way, and strange power awakening—Lex will either force the Graexian elite to treat her people with the compassion they deserve or drag the highborn deep down into the enginecity where they can burn together.

Cyberblade: The City of Five Skies, is a world inspired by Cyberpunk 2077, the Hunger Games series, and the author's long period of isolation during the Covid-shutdown and Australian wildfires. William Z Stone aimed to turn the feeling of being indoors and days of ash-clogged skies into its own dystopian world, where the people live in city-sized engines, and the citizens treated as mere cogs to be used and replaced by those in power.

If a dystopian story, with deep-dive questions about self-identity and a cybernetics-fueled revolution interests you, then read Cyberblade now!

About the Author

William Z Stone is a Melbourne based author, with a decade of story-crafting experience, years of book-writing experience, and whose career began in the Australian wildfires. Inspired by the ash blanketing the sky, and the weather forecasts each day measuring the toxicity of the air, William began writing dystopian science-fiction.

The 2020 Covid-19 epidemic swept through Melbourne, and left William without work, and without certainty in the future. Using the government-mandated isolation as further inspiration, William worked on Cyberblade full time, before releasing the title in November 2020.
