Why you must read Adam John Guy’s Novus Divide
Novus Divide is set in the near future in a city divided by vast wealth and extreme poverty. Jake Marshall is a man in his early thirties who’s pissed off at the world, but no longer cares enough to do anything about it. An unexpected request to find a young boy on the other side of his divided city forces Jake to open his eyes to the things he’d chosen to ignore. A chance meeting with a charismatic guerrilla terrorist by the name of Flint Nassari shows Jake that not everyone is ready to role over and accept what they are given.
We can’t quite guess what genre this is. Because it’s set in the future we’re thinking science fiction?
OK. Is there anything out there that appeals to a similar demographic?
I’ve written Novus Divide in a modern and informal style, and I’d like to think of it as being culturally and socially aware. Jake moans and swears a lot, so anyone who prefers more genre driven, traditional, conventional novels might find it a bit much to take.
They’ve been warned. What else do we need to know about Jake?
They say most first novels are highly autobiographical (whether they were intended to be or not) and it’s safe to say there is a lot of me in Jake.
That’s such a bleak thing to say about yourself! Fill in the rest of the picture.
