The Panopticon Experiment is a YA novel, Book One of the Siklus Series. It has been described as a cross between the ideas behind Extinction Rebellion and the novels of Philip Pullman. The Panopticon Experiment is set in New Britain on a post-apocalyptic Earth. A genetic mutation has enabled telepathy between humans and animals. The new political order reflects this new relationship, and the government represents all sentient beings on earth. However, just as in our time, reactionary forces are on the rise. The Human Supremacy League (the HSL) seeks to undermine the progress mankind has made, and destroy the bonds between man and animal. It is a book for anyone interested in friendship and adventure, the environment, animal rights and the future of the planet.
Seventeen-year-old orphan, Flo has a mission: To find her parents’ killers and reveal the truth behind a series of disappearances across the city. In a new world where animals and humans are equal, a secret terrorist group will stop at nothing to bring society back to the dark ages of the twenty-first century when Man was king. Flo is joined by her best friends, Seb and Lonce (the rare snow leopard with whom they share a telepathic bond). Together they travel to the far north of the British archipelago to confront the evil Human Supremacy League.
