The Gaia Machine: The complete series

By the year 2120, the world has changed dramatically. Few plants or animals have survived climate change and the human population has dropped to 3 billion. For those living in the affluent northern region, life is made comfortable by an artificial intelligence called The Gaia Machine. But for those living in the southern region, life is tough. So tough, they must trade their young women as surrogates in exchange for fresh water.

Ophelia Alsop, a privileged woman from the United Kingdom, and long-time conscientious objector to the surrogacy trade, takes matters into her own hands by becoming pregnant with her husband. For this, she is punished by the invisible hand of the law in a manner only The Gaia Machine could execute. When she speaks out against the injustice, she is abducted and imprisoned in a bizarre underworld where she discovers the shocking truth behind the surrogacy trade, illegal harvesting of human organs and the Ruling Elite's terrifying plans for the future of humanity.

Spanning the United Kingdom, France and Spain, Ophelia's journey takes her from a life of privilege to one of poverty before she finds a way to destroy The Gaia Machine and reveal the power brokers behind the digital curtain. But success, she learns, looks rather different to what she had expected.

Reader reviews:

"At four paragraphs in I'm hooked. Andrews' writing is clear and flowing yet filled with subtle, haunting tension, that mirrors the modern world, filled with ease-providing technology at often unseen cost and depth. The author's ability at world-building is wonderful, and her choices in names and their connotations make this as rich and three-dimensional as Star Wars. I was enjoying the series from the start. And as we proceed, many of the conventions of Ophelia's time hit a little too close to our present home for comfort, but that's a perfect and useful ingredient in dystopian literature, of course." - Rodney

"Definitely enjoyed that the world created by the author is so much like something that could actually happen, in fact many things depicted in the geopolitical world in the book to some extent are happening now, except the tech. The main character, though, essentially spends the first book in the refrigerator, and I wish she could have played a more active role in her rescue a little sooner. Other than that, imaginative book that is worth the money." - Matthew

"Exciting, intelligent and well written. Ophelia offers a glimmer of hope for the human race's future in a dystopian nightmare. Anyone who enjoys dystopian fiction or speculative or sci-fi literature should read this book." - Ellie
