The Threshold Bookcast : Chapter 14 : Silent Talking



Chapter 14 : Silent Talking

The fourteenth episode of The Threshold Series focuses on Olivia Romero, the Chief Environmental Adviser of Neo Apollonia.

At the beginning of the chapter, the former activist is walking towards the church of the Community, all the while pondering the circumstances which have led her to spend most of her life on Ovel.

« Such preoccupations wouldn't have crossed her mind back when she had first set foot in the megapolis, the quinquagenarian fondly recollected. It had been almost forty years already. She was among the original generation of Ovelians born aboard a space station. She had not even visited the homeland before making the bold decision of moving down there as a young adult. Settling in Neo Delphi, a neighbouring city, to attend Parnassus University, she had immediately fallen in love with the planet, its impossibly vast, seemingly unlimited outdoors, and its incredible biodiversity. In fact, the attraction had been so overwhelming that, after only minimal consideration, she had altered her plans and chosen to study ecology, of all subjects for an off-worlder, eager to deepen her knowledge of the apparently inexhaustible source of amazement. »



The public figure hastens to the religious building where she will join Aeira for a private meeting. Their conversation will allow us to discover some of the undisclosed concerns of the two women.

I hope you enjoy « Silent Talking, » this week's instalment of the Threshold Bookcast !




On a background of environmental and financial crises, and religious influences intertwining with political manoeuvres to determine the fate of an overpopulated planet, The Threshold Series chronicles the saga of the Ovelian civilization, a society very similar to our own, as it heads towards one of the most dramatic chain of events of its history.

The first book, « 2206 : Window Onto A New World, » focuses on the end of the year 2206, which culminates on an important federal election that will be impacted by the discovery of an anomaly in the nearby outer space.

Each episode of The Threshold Bookcast consists in a complete chapter of the series, made available for free online reading.
