The Vandervelde Documents

The new exciting trilogy by Richard Turner.

What sort of world are we leaving them?
IN A SERIES OF INTERLOCKING STORIES and documents covering 100 years and three generations, these books attempt to answer the question “What sort of world are we leaving to our descendants?”
VANDERVELDE HIMSELF IS AGELESS, a charismatic ‘Sapient’ who can cut through political hypocrisy but finds love difficult.
Mollie, academic high flyer and a true polymath, is his right hand woman. Amy, an aviation entrepreneur falls for Van, but will she “begin with an older man and end up with a toyboy”?
Twm, a self-taught engineer invents a new transport system. Together they change the world, but ‘The Warden’ is watching, and other Sapients have different ideas. The series begins with an end – a world in 2120 of around 1.5 billion people who know that they must live, “as all life on earth must live, only on what the earth can provide”.
It is a world in which Homo Sapiens has at last learned some sapience.

The Carbon Brief

★★★★★

A well written and well researched book.

The Phoenix Nation

★★★★☆
4 5 1
In the second volume of Richard's trilogy we see his vision of a post-apocalypse Britain. The re-habilitation of a devastated nation by the survivors is realistic and well-reasoned. We see the abandonment of democracy in favour of demarchy and the mystery surrounding The Warden deepens. The Health Service and Education also get the Turner Treatment. This book lacks the drama and tension of the first but it is a good continuation of the storyline. And over the border Anglia is rising.
