Mendelstov is a book. And so much more. It qualifies as contemporary fantasy. And yet is timeless. It's a novel, that reads like an epic film.
It can be read, experienced, seen, heard, tasted, smelled, followed.
It's a manifest for freedom. An epic journey accross a continent in the near future.
And a place you can visit, hidden behind a steel door in Amsterdam Noord.
Watch the book trailer here.
'My name is Oxzana Mendelstova. And I have always wondered how it can be that someone wrote about my journey even before I was born. I left my village that was threatened by a dreadful disease, the Inter Human Allergy. Disguised as a boy, I set out to free my world.'
'Mendelstov' is about the power of the human voice in a quest to save the world from a deadly allergy.
The Inter Human Allergy – commonly known as the Shun - has struck mercilessly in the Great Assault. Families and villages are torn apart. People are forced to live isolated, 12 meters apart, able to spend no more than two days together at once or their lungs will slowly but surely turn to stone.
In this world controlled by the Azorite army, Oxzana goes on a quest to save her world from annihalation and military control. Disguised as a boy, she sets out on a long and intense journey to find an antidote.
