Traverse: The Last Heir of Arthur, W.A. Holdsworth

Action & Adventure, Contemporary Fiction, Literature & Fiction

Novum Orbis Regnum. A single, worldwide government.

Many believe a worldwide government will herald the end of freedom and democracy, the second coming of Christ—a time of great tribulation. Others believe it will finally bring about a just, compassionate, worldwide society—a time of true equality and enlightenment. Either way, what would bring about such a world? And, more importantly, who would lead it? 

Traverse intertwines the seemingly disparate destinies, fortunes, and crimes of characters from vastly different backgrounds who come together to challenge the political and moral foundations of the world. William Cameron MacCrarey, a man about to be thrust upon the world stage and pushed to his emotional and intellectual limits. Merrill MaGeah and Kyle Dunham, Elders of the Clan Camulodunum, who wish to cast upon the world stage a man for whom the Clan was founded more than 1,500 years ago. Secretary-General René Boujeau, leader of the only worldwide organization in history, who desires to recast the United Nations into his own personal empire. And Under Secretary Gerhardt Schoen, a cold and brutal man who will stop at nothing to fulfill what he believes is the birthright of his Germanic ancestors.

What will happen in the end? Will a single world-wide government herald a time of prosperity, freedom, justice, and equality? Will it bring to power a man of monstrous beliefs bent on creating a despotic empire, or a man of enlightenment and humanity? Traverse lays bare the fallacies of our modern world, builds upon the enduring truths of history, and takes the first step towards humankind’s next great intellectual age—the Age of Peace.

Thank-you, Aimee, for your review! Writing Traverse was hard work but it was also a passion. I wrote it and rewrote it over a period of twenty years!
