Devlin – The Ancient Future is set in the not-too-distant future when the islands of Ireland and Britain are ruled by the repressive Regime, managed by AI and advanced androids. Devlin, who worked for the Regime when younger, now lives in the mainland capital city.
In the not-too-distant future the islands of Ireland and Britain are ruled by the repressive Regime, managed by AI and advanced androids. Devlin was previously employed by the Regime, but now works casually in the mainland capital city. After a period of estrangement, he renews contact with his family back home in Ireland where a deep Celtic spirituality has re-immerged. Devlin now finds that his relationship with his sister Miriam and the artist Gráinne are crucial to his progress through disturbing times that are both bizarre and worryingly familiar.
The Regime seeks to re-employ Devlin in a role devolving powers to the west of Ireland. With this he sees the potential for greater political empowerment, but he has also become a figure of interest to forces willing to use extreme violence to gain their country full independence. Devlin finds he is now faced with a dilemma he can’t walk away from, one that will ultimately define both his future and that of his community.
