Unideate by L.W. Brook is a post-apocalyptic novel about a society that is supposedly perfect, but is in actuality a cult built around a madman. In 2059 there is a nuclear war after an accidental launch. Ten years later, everyone who survived that first devastation is scrambling just to stay alive. The New World is a self-sufficient compound with a fantastic generator based on technology developed by a man called Isaak Kazimir. Using his generator, Kazimir turns the compound called New World into a paradise with clean air, food, and other things not found outside. To the people in the compound, everything outside is called the Old World and it is a horror used to scare people into obedience. Farren and Francesca are a young brother and sister struggling in the New World compound, along with their sick grandfather. When things take a turn for the worse, Farren embarks on a journey of discovery that will have consequences for more than himself and his family.
L.W. Brook introduces us to the Old World and the New World through Farren’s eyes and a colorful cast of characters that we come to love and hate. Isaak Kazimir is not the blessed savior the people of the New World compound think he is and we find out why as we travel with Farren through the Old World. The writing is good, the characters are plentiful and interesting, and the more you learn about this place and its history the more you want to know how the story ends.
