The Cantral Chronicles is a dystopian trilogy set hundreds of years in Earth's future. The world is oppressed by the ruling class who control the populace with computer chips implanted in their skulls. An uprising is impossible. Or is it?
With microchips implanted in their skulls at birth, the slaves of Cantral and Cillineese have labored under the tyrannical rule of the nobles and their computers for decades. Monica, a noble who avoided the implanting and escaped a death sentence at the age of four, is now sixteen and is in hiding. She lives with the slaves inside the walls of the Cantral palace, pretending to be one of them while the slave council plots a way to use her chip-less state to destroy the all-powerful computers that strike down any hint of rebellion.
The nobles hear of Monica's survival and try to exterminate her before she ruins their upper-class utopia. The rebels send her to find a missing paper bearing instructions on how to shut down the computers that control the chips in Cillineese, a major city-state. The nobles are alerted to the plan and prepare to seal Cillineese in a giant dome to gas the inhabitants, including Monica.
The fate of millions rides on Monica's shoulders. As the only chip-less person in the world, she must find the paper, destroy the computers, and free Cillineese from the nobles' iron fist before they strike with the ultimate punishment-death for everyone inside the city walls.
Monica has risked life and limb to free the inhabitants of Cillineese, but the computers still rule the rest of the world.
Now she must journey to Cantral and take the identity of her dying cousin, Amelia, to infiltrate the Nobles’ world in the guise of a teenager who is a master computer programmer. Because of her childhood living among the slaves of Cantral, Monica knows little about programming and must improvise to stay alive.
As the only chip-less person in the world, Monica must convince the Council of Eight of her innocence, destroy the computers, and free the world from the nobles before they discover her ruse.
With microchips implanted in their skulls at birth, the slaves of Cantral and Cillineese have labored under the tyrannical rule of the Nobles and their computers for decades. Monica, a Noble who avoided the implanting and escaped a death sentence at the age of four, is now sixteen. Having freed the slaves from Cillineese and Cantral, Monica embarks on an even more dangerous journey, across the ocean to the Eursian continent where a rogue noble has established a governing system of his own that was not affected by Cantral’s downfall.
In the meantime, the freed slaves of Cantral have taken the law into their own hands and are exacting revenge upon their former masters, including the very people who saved them. Monica and her friends Simon and Aric must escape the city and reach Eursia in time to stop the rogue noble’s implementation of his system, which would enslave everyone in that part of the world.
The fate of millions rides on Monica’s shoulders. As the only chip-less person in the world, she must find her long-lost mother, destroy the Eursian computers, and free the slaves before Eursia suffers the fate of Cillineese—termination.
