Animated martial arts scene from Libertaria: The Virtual Opera. It’s the year 2139, and United States, decimated by nuclear war in the last half of the 21st century has splintered off into territorial factions. The sky has grown red, the water runs black, and hope rests on the shoulders of a young teen.
Meet Libertaria, of unknown origin and unknown place. Left as an infant in the abandoned Lady Liberty Souvenir Shop in the year 2125, she spent her early years bouncing within the Factory. Aided by a woman known only as Nurse, Libertaria escapes Factory at the age of 14, traveling the bullet train from Nueva York, the capitol of the USSA, to New Miami in search of the one person that ever showed her kindness.
A mysterious glowing medallion leads her to the Underground, a society of children led by the seemingly immortal Simeon. Hunted by the Apothetae Army Police, Simeon and his closest allies, Miguel, Lucy, and Gabe, attempt to protect the innocent and helpless from the Collective, an immoral mysterious alliance of seven who control the Factory.
The world had not heard the last of the spunky chic with the bad attitude. Before it’s all over, she will lead a children’s rebellion against the greasy politicos running the nation into the ground.

"Libertaria: Genesis is dystopian, and good at it, and that needs further examination." - J. Roseman, escapepod.org
“One of my favorite things about this story is its odd apocalyptic tone and strong sci-fi/fantasy foundation. The dark quality that comes with it is the cherry on top.” –FanboysAnonymous.com on Libertaria: The Virtual Opera
WHAT FANS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE LIBERTARIA CHRONICLES
"Between the book, virtual opera, soundtrack, and all the extras, Young has created a convincing world...a dark dystopian future for you to get lost in. The characters are complex, flawed, and human, and you are never sure what they will do next. Looking forward to the next book in the series!"
"This book is dystopia squared. It's not and shouldn't be a quick read. It's complex and jumps around a lot. which is what good dystopia is supposed to be. To me, Libertaria is like a code that has to be broken. Like taking on a second language."
