What if a whole race wanted you dead, where would you go? And what if you didn’t know why? What if everything you thought you knew about yourself was wrong?

Cyberpunk vs Steampunk: a dystopian post-apocalyptic adventure for MG/YA crossover

One thousand years have passed since nuclear war wiped out civilization in the northern hemisphere. The planet slowly heats and water becomes a rare resource. Out of the ruins of a devastated civilization rises a new breed of people – those with the power to control magnetism. Teslas

Sebastian, a young orphan boy from a quiet rural town, is being hunted by strange part-machine, part-human people. His only hope is Melanie, an angry, dying teenage girl who is dragged into the adventure and sets out to deliver him to the Steam Academy, even if it’s just to stop him talking. Seb must confront an unknown past and fight against everything he believed in. And occasionally wash his hair.

No one said it would be easy.

The adventure continues in the multi award-winning book 2 of the Tesla Evolution, DECAY.

Interview with the Author

Q: Who is supposed to read this thing?

If you’re smart, good-looking, and generally awesome then this is for you!! It is written for the MG/YA crossover market, and as though the main character had written it. As the characters evolve, the writing evolves with them. We start off simple then increase the complexity over the series.

Q: You know, teenagers don’t act like this.

That’s not really a question, but yes, they do! In real life, this is how they talk. Even though it is a teen book, it is written about them as if they had written it, not down to them.

Q: They don’t. It’s as simple as that.

That’s even less of a question.

Q: Don’t we have enough of this Apocalypse stuff?

Probably.

Q: That’s not much of an answer.

Very well, yes there’s heaps of very successful titles already out in this style. I’ve tried to add something new to the oeuvre, while also paying a bit of an homage to what has already been. But I’ve taken the concepts of Electro-Magnetic theory and asked: How far can I push the concept while still having it grounded in science? — what if?

Q: What’s up with the weird scene changes?

I observed how teens were watching movies and playing games (like Assassins’ Creed), and examined how narrative was presented in these mediums. I wanted to capture the kind of urgency you get in cut-scenes. Everything is stripped back to the bare story. No messing around. Hence the adrenaline rush tag.

Q: So how do I classify this book?

Well, it’s a genre mash-up so it can easily fit within many categories:

– Cyberpunk Adventure

– Dystopian YA

– Steampunk Adventure

– Science Fiction Action Adventure

– Humorous and Thrilling

But at its heart it’s a sci-fi adventure, a simple story about a boy who only wants to get his mom back. And save the universe without the curse of eating vegetables.

Q: Too right on the vegetables.

Yes, that is a running gag that goes through all of the books.

Q: Oh, God, no! There’s more?

Yes, the journey has only just begun. Much like Lord of the Rings

Q: Comparing yourself to Tolkien now?

Of course not, all I’m trying to say that Tesla (like the Hobbit) is a lighthearted opening to a much darker story. Decay, Faraday and Fusion are like the three Lord of the Rings titles, much darker and written for an older reader. But I’m not, and let me be very clear about this, comparing it to Lord of the Rings.

    Surprisingly gripping!, 5 Feb. 2015

    Tesla, by Mark Lingane, is set in the future, in a world where there is a war and water is becoming a rare resource. Sebastian, a young teenager who has just lost his parents and aunt, suddenly finds himself fighting strange creatures and having to escape his hometown. During his adventures, he meets Melanie, a very ill teenage girl elder than him that will become his ally…I won’t tell you anymore or I’ll spoil the story!
    I just want to say that I was surprised when someone recommended me this book as I don’t usually enjoy sci-fi too much, even if I have absolutely loved the Hunger Games, the Divergent saga and Harry Potter! So, while reading the first pages, I was skeptical enough but then, even if I think it is really aimed at teenagers, I have found the book surprisingly gripping and very entertaining and I have actually read it really quickly! It’s really a great book!

    Tesla is an amazing book for fans of dystopian fiction, steampunk, robots and video games, managing to put all of these components together and it works really well! As a fan of dystopian fiction such as The Hunger Games, 1984, The Road and The Divergent series, I was sceptical before reading this book. There are so many post-apocalyptic books out there that I actually wasn’t holding out much hope that this one would be any different, or have any unique qualities.
    But it was! It combines the brutality of 1984, the confused and lost protagonist from Divergent, and much, much more. Plus- robots and the advances of technology? It really makes you think about what could really happen, and the author manages to capture this horror on paper.
    Although the start was a little slow, this book contains loads of action, ass-kicking and adventure. It’s new and interesting, although sometimes a little confusing. The characters are amazing and relatable, (especially for the teenage age range,) and both Sebastian and Melanie, (an ill girl who becomes his ally- but I won’t ruin it!) have specific traits that others can see in themselves. It’s a whirlwind of emotions and adventure, from start to finish.
    I’m actually sad that the book has ended and I’m super excited to read the next one, and then the third!
    I really recommend this book; the author’s descriptions of the people, the atmosphere and the landscapes are both perfect and creepy and make for a perfect story!
    5/5

    A Post Apocalyptic tale for teenagers. If you enjoyed Divergence you may give this a go., 26 Aug. 2015

    This is a book aimed at teenagers and its strength lies in the interaction between the main characters, Seb and Melanie. They are fun and their dialogues often witty and amusing. There are some sly digs at modern teenage life; for instance, the cult boy band is called No Bearing, a thinly veiled allusion to One Direction!

    Set in a post-apocalyptic world, young Sebastian teams up with a dying girl, Melainie, and together they make their way to the city called the Steam Academy. Once there, they are trained to fulfil their own destiny: Seb as a Tesla and Melanie as a fighter. It becomes apparent that Seb is able to control magnetism and his superior skill at this will be essential to his survival and to that of his fellow humans at the Steam Academy, as they are under constant attack from the ruthless Cyborgs.

    Many exciting battles ensue and the action is continued in book two, Decay.
