The dystopian world of Silent Consent thrusts readers into a grim, plausible future. Since the end of the carbon era and the collapse of the old empire, the Founder States have used the draconian demotions proposed by Rene Strongbow and Lucrecia Tarquin to punish energy crimes and nepotism. Humans, being what they are, corrupted the system meant to end corruption. As a result, a society that has modeled itself on a warped sense of classical pride, one that preaches that the convicts deserve whatever they get, has begun to implode
The world’s dependence on fossil fuels has become a relic of the past, and human labor now supports the lifestyle of a few powerful clans and a ruthless political regime dedicated to maintaining control of the remaining resources. Over the disenfranchised and political dissidents looms the threat of ‘demotion’ – a grim fate that reduces them to mere objects.
Amidst this oppressive backdrop, a courageous few recognize the injustice of this world and, despite societal pressures, cannot shut their eyes against it. Silent Consent leads us on a perilous journey through the lives of those who dare to challenge the status quo, offering a poignant exploration of their struggles in a society teetering on the brink of darkness.
