Moral Order - The Rise of Luca C Mariner
Society has been ripped apart by environmental decay and the battle scars of progress. Solar storms, extreme weather, barbaric tribes of outcasts and mutant creatures rule the planet. In the 22nd century, no one lasts in the Wilds for long.
Shielded from this world, sixteen-year-old Luca C. Mariner lives a privileged existence in one of the last remaining Megacities. Yet his tranquil life is about to be shattered. Luca and his friends are thrown into the brutal reality of the Wilds when Earth is threatened by a merciless alien alliance.
Luca, fragile humanoid Ceiba and feisty Asia-Mae are catapulted into a thrilling adventure of intergalactic and deep sea mystery. They must battle against time, using their courage, abilities and the strength of their friendship, to become leaders of a new resistance. But is it too late to restore moral order and save humanity from imminent collapse?

The seeds for his first novel, Moral Order, were sown when Phil dived beneath the waters of the Galápagos as a wide-eyed student and sensed the ecosystem’s awe inspiring beauty and fragility. The realisation that the natural world was interconnected and threatened by human achievement led to the creation of an future world in which the protagonists must deal with a global disaster of epic proportions.
