The Rebellion’s Last Traitor


“Nik Korpon’s The Rebellion’s Last Traitor is a mesmerizing mix of post-apocalyptic F/SF, war/adventure, criminals dealing in memories, and black-as-hell noir. It’s full of attitude and atmosphere, and I couldn’t put it down.”
Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Disappearance at Devil’s Rock

In a dystopian world ravaged by war and environmental collapse, one man fights history to discover the truth about his wife and child.

The Memory Thief Book One

After decades of war, the brutal Tathadann Party restored order in Eitan City by outlawing the past in order to rewrite history. Memory became a commodity – bought and sold, and experienced like a drug.

For ten years, Henraek and Walleus led a people’s rebellion, until Walleus recognized what the others couldn’t: the Struggle was doomed. He joined the Tathadann, and Henraek, hurt and angry, incited a riot that killed his own wife and son.

Now Henraek works as a Tathadann memory thief, draining citizens’ memories while mourning his family. The people call him a traitor to his face; Tathadann spies whisper he’s a traitor behind his back. Walleus protects Henraek, but Henraek knows that loyalty has its limits.

Then everything changes when Henraek harvests a memory of his wife’s death. He will do whatever it takes to learn the truth – even if it means burning Eitan City to the ground.
