Toronto, ONTARIO M9M 3B5
To whom it may concern,
A lethal mind-altering technology, the mindseal transforms the mind of Donovan Merlyn's least favorite person the school bully Kim. Donovan witnesses the sight of Kim sprawled on the ground, and for no apparent cause unable to move with a rare look of torture on his face. This tells Donovan that something he can't see must be at work here. Fifteen-year-old Donovan Merlyn doesn’t expect to save the school bully's life. But when a lethal mind-altering technology attacks him, Donovan reluctantly takes actions to break him free of the mindseal.
Matthew Freeman can hardly blame his best friend Don when their efforts to learn more about mindseals is noticed by their enemies who will stop at nothing to keep their secret hidden, even killing. The man in possession of these mind-altering seals is none other than Don’s own father. From showing loyalty to family, and bringing a criminal with technology with the ability to be extremely destructive to justice, Don is at war with himself. He must combat his inward feelings, highly trained criminals as well as keeping the tech out of his own head when his father decides he must join his cause.
Robert Merlyn plans to render the major politicians of Derrydown City useless to lead the city with his powerful mindseals. This would leave only one politician available for him to use as his own puppet to gain control over the city as Derrydown's mayor. The challenge is for Don to oppose his own father, decide whether Rob’s view of justice is right or wrong. This decision that will either save his city or allow it to be ruined stands unflinchingly in his way. If Robert’s plan works out, the city will be enslaved by a ruthless dictator who has his own warped perception of justice after experiencing many injustices himself.
The Age Of Mind Control" is a 40,000 word, sci-fi book with slight themes of mystery. The setting is set in a busy city of Ontario. Very similar to that of Toronto, Derrydown has a busy atmosphere. I have published a sci-fi short story, entitled “The Art of Deception.” The url is: https://www.fictionm...r-vol-04-no-05/.
