Fossils 2084 is a dystopian novel by Michael Beres. Sunset Village is a gated retirement community, surrounded by razor wire and monitored by drones. Can they survive the oncoming extinction? An AI-piloted hybrid airliner crash-lands on a golf course, full of evangelicals on their way to an environmental protest. The Sunset Village residents have kept themselves away from the rest of the world but the crash-landing changes everything for them. Chance meetings between the rescued and the rescuers, oligarchs ruling over everyone, the microcosm created by the Sunset Villagers is on the brink of collapse. Some are in complete denial while others, the Fossil Fuelers, grab gasoline for their gas-powered golf carts. The world is changing, heading for inevitable extinction, and the Sunset Villagers have just one chance to save themselves. Can they?

Fossils 2084 by Michael Beres is very different from what he usually writes. I’ve read his work before and this didn’t disappoint me. Although dystopian novels seem to be the in-thing right now, this one has a unique storyline, one that keeps you reading simply because you have to know what happens. It’s quite a scary novel really because it could all be so true – none of us knows the future, we just know that AI is likely to have a strong part to play. The characters in this story are really well-developed and likable and the plot just keeps you guessing all the way through, with plenty of action to keep you entertained. A compelling tale with fabulous characters, I guarantee this will keep you reading late into the night.

This was a frightening book, made so by our so-called political leaders doing nothing. Thank you.
