Maelstorm (Gideon Rayne Book 1)

About the Book

A hundred years from now, everything you know will be gone.

Growing up an orphan in privately run New Britain, Gideon Rayne had just one dream: to work for Kaoteck Industries as one of the Constables. But when selection day comes around, nothing goes as expected.

Soon, Gideon is entrusted with a miraculous suit of high-tech armor, and thrown into a terrifying adventure that puts him on a collision course with forces darker than he never knew existed.

Gideon Rayne – Maelstorm is an exciting new series that will keep you turning ‘just one more page’, as you delve deeper into Gideon’s journey through the chaotic world of New Britain in the year 2120.

Gareth (G.A.) Franks is originally from a small town in Leicestershire, but now resides in the Cotswolds with his wife and children. As a child he loved using a bright pink 'McDonald's' pen and 'Transformers' notepad to write stories about his beloved comic book characters, and - until recently - that was where his writing career began and ended.

Much of his adult life has been spent travelling around the pubs and clubs of England playing bass and guitar in a variety of bands (with varying degrees of success). But after finally reaching a state of comfortable middle-age tubbyness, and completing a degree in education, he decided to leave the music to the next generation, swap the old pink pen for a MacBook and start writing again.

His debut novel 'Maelstorm' book one in the Gideon Rayne series was published in September 2020.
