It’s 1,000 years since nuclear war wiped out civilization. A new breed arises, teslas, which control magnetism.

His only help: Melanie, an angry, dying teenage girl he finds living in a cave.

"A great read. Tesla is evidence of a very talented writer. 5 stars.” - theIndieTribe 

Once Mr L gets into his stride, he shows us his best stuff yet in this teen steampunk versus cyberpunk post-apocalyptic adrenaline rush." - theBookBag 

Sebastian is a perfect character for a younger teenager in a decent coming of age tale, albeit against Dickensian life, magic powers and killer cyborgs. - SelfPublishingReview
