《明日破晓》类似于当今的科幻小说,故事内容玄幻而引人入胜。小说中主人公戴维加入了一个神秘的德国组织,人生轨迹发生了天翻地覆的转变。在此期间究竟发生了什么呢?

这是一部有趣的科幻题材的小说。小说描写了20世纪中期美国中心地带,尤其是威斯康星州的一些场景。小说讲述了主人公戴维,一名聪明机智又富有想象力的初中生,遇见了神秘的罗伯特先生,并被他劝说加入德国一个神秘的贵族组织的事情。戴维很快便意识到这个组织已经研发出高科技,可以再次进行种族纯化运动以及宣扬雅利安人的种族优越性。自此戴维的生活便陷入了神秘、疯癫甚至是死亡的边缘。

It is an intriguing twist on the science fiction genre that paints a fascinating panorama of the American Heartland, specifically Wisconsin, in the mid-twentieth century. When David, an imaginative and intelligent junior high school student, meets the mysterious Mr. Roberts he is persuaded to join a secret organization of German nobles. David soon learns that this group has developed remarkable technology to help their mission an attempted reprise of the mania of ethnic purity and Aryan supremacy. What follows will pitch Davids life into a series of misdeeds, mystery, and mayhem, and eventually lead David to the brink of madness and very nearly death.

There are always two ways of looking at a thing, frequently there are six or seven; but two ways of looking at a London fog are quite enough. When it is thick and yellow in the streets and stings a man's throat and lungs as he breathes it, an awakening in the early morning is either an unearthly and grewsome, or a mysteriously enclosing, secluding, and comfortable thing.
