Synopsis from dcuniverseinfinite.com: Hundreds of years after the world ended and human society was rebuilt from scratch, a self-interested smuggler is forced to traverse a new continent of danger and mystery to deliver a child messiah to High Level, a mythical city at the top of the world from which no one has ever returned. Don’t miss the start of a new series from writer Rob Sheridan, co-creator of Nine Inch Nails’ groundbreaking Year Zero alternate-reality game!

Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:

  1. Would you describe Thirteen as a heroic protagonist or not? Explain.
  2. What makes the post-apocalyptic cyberpunk setting of High Level unique and stand out? Is there anything you like on how technology is used here?
  3. How does the journey with Minnow change Thirteen as a person in this series? Explain.
  4. What does exploration of different societies and use of a map tell us about how the setting is influenced by the High level in this series?
  5. High Level has allusions to “City upon a hill” (biblical belief of a place that would be a shining example of the world). Does this reference reflect well in the overall series? Explain.
