Travis Pearson pens an exciting action thriller in The Last Defender. The country had elected The Socialist as their supreme leader. His administration promised idealistic changes, yet the changes are far from ideal. The country is in a state of hopelessness and economic despair. Demonstrators protest, families are distraught about the disappearances of loved ones, violence runs rampant. The Department of Internal Security has free reign to seize and control anyone they choose. One man, Brent Stevens, begins to see through their diabolical masquerade. Through his research, Brent develops a powerful energy device. Harnessing its power, Brent fights back. Is he a superhero, a legend, or simply the last line of defense against The Socialist's regime?
The Last Defender by Travis Pearson portrays the story of a crusading hero and his band of mighty warriors. The narrative’s setting is a society that has been conditioned to become politically correct in all aspects of life. The aftermath of this conditioning provides easy access for the domineering Socialist regime. The antagonist entity, a man only known as The Socialist, builds his administration on deceit and then fortifies his control by reeducating his citizens through scientific and dehumanization processes. Pearson writes a compelling story; the technique of not giving names, but using titles for his primary villainous characters was creative, adding a depth of intrigue. The protagonist is a man with high hopes and dreams of a brighter tomorrow. However, to achieve these dreams, he must use his invented powers. Thus, an urban legend is born. In a world where superheroes are all the rage, The Last Defender doesn’t disappoint.
