With the Elite no longer in control and the Divide closed, the people of Terene expected change. They knew life could be better; they had seen it. During the recent coup led by Guy Bensen and Keira Maddock, televiews throughout the world aired footage of the more technologically advanced and peaceful realm of Mediterra. It was exactly what the Working Class citizens of Terene wanted for themselves and for their children. But change often takes time.
Six years have passed. Life in Mediterra is all eleven year-old diabetic Noah can remember and all his sister, Nadine, has ever known. Now a new President is in power, and their father, Scott Maddock, has decided it's time to move his family back to Terene. He says things are different now. He says things have changed for the better. Noah isn't so sure.
At first glance, this is a futuristic dystopian political thriller, but at its core, Heart of Humanity is a story of compassion. By skillfully weaving together several characters' viewpoints in a first person narrative, the realm of Terene comes to life, magnifying universal issues such as bullying and prejudice. Part three of a trilogy, this novel also stands well on its own.
