The book considers an alternative ‘us’ and asks the question, what if we’re not who we think we are, what if ‘we’ are ‘them’?A drowning at sea and a cellphone receiving cryptic messages from the future propel seventeen-year-old Nathaniel into a search through time for his older brother Seb, missing from their remote fishing village after attempts on his life. Guided by a series of diagrams to the site of a strange Garden destroyed in an earthquake, Nat discovers he himself has become the hunted, and Seb is someone marked with a code.From the wild seas of Tasmania to ancient Greece through to New York City in 1911, Nat and his fellow-traveler Norika flee their pursuers into a Network where no one, including Seb, is quite as they seem. When they finally discover their connection to the long-ago Survivors and their Descendants, Nat faces a revelation about his brother that affects not only his future, but his past.Akropolis offers cross-genre appeal to readers of thought-provoking YA and Science Fiction, with its shifting parallel stories of two brothers trapped in time and history, and the decisions they make to survive.
