Guided by her prophetical visions, Keila takes on the oppressive Terran Council. But can the source of her visions be trusted?
The Divine Sedition takes place in the year 2872 and follows young Martian rebel Keila Eisenstein in her fight against the oppressive Terran Council.
In a vision, Keila realizes that to reach her goal to free her people, she first has to liberate the asteroid colony Eden from the tyrant Abraham Goldstein. She succeeds and takes control over Eden.
Having gained control over Eden, Keila fakes her own death to fool the Terran Council officer assigned to detain her, Rear Admiral Bjorn Muller.
Keila decides to use Eden as her base of operations deceptively turning the Terran Council members against each other. Keila faces overwhelming odds trying to take down the mighty Terran Council that has been dominating the solar system and oppressed the majority of humanity for over 500 years.
Keila does, however, have one trump on hand against these overwhelming odds: Her mysterious divine connection.
Her visions are leading her way, and with access to the late Abraham Goldstein's technology, Keila can unveil secrets that will help her free humanity from the oppression of the few elite plutocrats dominating all of humankind.
But, her connection comes at a price. Thus, are the Zetans, controlling Keila as a puppet, indeed better than the Terran Council oppressors she seeks to replace?
7.9 The Fall of Bjorn Muller
Bjorn Muller woke up from the crash landing and got out the ship. He was in immense pain as he had broken his leg and had a metal pole penetrating the side of his body. Bjorn knew that he would bleed out and die within minutes if he tried to pull out the pole, so he decided to leave it in. He got out of the ship and realised that he had crashed just before the edge of the Olympus Mons mountain. He looked up and realised that his father’s plan had failed. Phobos was moving away from Mars instead of getting closer. He heard a familiar voice and turned around.
Bjorn Muller! I have finally won the war for my people.
Bjorn looked at Keila in disbelief.
How did you do that? How did you manage to both survive and stop me with a punctured lung and a destroyed liver?
What are you talking about, I am fine.
Really? Look again.
Keila had a look at her body. Bjorn Muller was right. She was bleeding profusely, and she was struggling to breathe.
Looks like we are both dying. We might as well talk to each other and die in peace.
Keila dropped to the ground without saying anything. She was coughing blood, and for the second time in less than 20 minutes, she felt like she was dying.
You know Keila. I never intended for any of this to happen. Things could have been so different between you and me
That doesn’t change the fact that you tried to kill 4 billion individuals to save your own skin. You’ll end up in hell for your crimes.
If there is such a thing as hell. Yes, you are right.
But you see, hell will be nothing new for me. You see, you have made my life a living hell for the last six years.
