A Division of Order

The Tamboli Sequence, Book Two

Three science fiction novels exploring the impact of unreliable histories, all linked by a man called Tamboli.

A Division of Order cover

Juno is an ordered authoritarian society that desperately needs reform. A man known only as Tamboli knows how to divide it, but can it be put together again afterwards?


Jemma is determined to discover the truth behind their closed, secretive world. Progressing through society, she becomes convinced that the ruling Director caste has too much power.


Unfortunately only an undercover resistance movement – led by a faceless man called Tamboli – is likely to change things, but their tactic of fomenting division puts her closest friends in danger. 


Torn between her desire for reform and the need to protect her friends, Jemma faces the ultimate dilemma. Can a society kept ignorant of its own nature survive a malignant force knowing the truth?
