The Winged Lion: Marion's Match

In the year 2090, the United People's Commonwealth world government and its leader, Premier Kerioth, are fighting an existential threat from a growing rebellion. The nonconformist cause, led by General Nathaniel Marion, espouses beliefs of restoring liberty to the world's oppressed population. Little does the overreaching government know that a mysterious group of people is supporting the tricorn-wearing freedom fighters. Their goal? To topple the tyrannical regime.

In the midst of the struggle is a prodigious teenager named Peter Barclay. Peter's intellect and rare abilities provide a stark juxtaposition to his peers in Chicago, where he attends a Commonwealth primary school. Peter's beliefs and his unexpected role in the gladiatorial match against General Marion at the notorious Central Stadium prove to be incompatible with Commonwealth society, and become catalysts for others to find hope in a world drowning in despair.

The combined capabilities of the nonconformist alliance take the action from Chicago to Auckland, and from an interchronological cruiser beyond the far side of the moon to the Tonga Trench at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. As the larger rebel objective becomes apparent, a highly militarized port near Los Angeles is the first target of a much larger operation designed to free the geographical area once known as the land of the liberators.

Premier Kerioth and his high council, blinded by arrogance and contempt for the nonconformist rebellion, witness unprecedented incursions which threaten to gain the momentum necessary to overturn the Commonwealth's world order by exploiting their weaknesses.

The decolonization of this hateful and cruel world government begins with the changing of people's hearts through the recollection of ideas that had been purposefully vilified, altered, and expunged—ideas related to the founding of the former United States of America.
