Publisher's Summary

The explosive conclusion to Nexus and Crux.
Global unrest spreads through the US, China, and beyond. Secrets and lies set off shockwaves of anger, rippling from mind to mind. Riot police battle neutrally linked protestors. Armies are mobilized. Political orders fall. Nexus-driven revolution is in here.
Against this backdrop a new breed of posthuman children are growing into their powers. And a once-dead scientist, driven mad by her torture, is closing in on her plans to seize planet's electronic systems and reforge everything in her image. A new Apex species is here. The world will never be the same.

Furious ranting review. Worst narration ever

What did you like best about Apex? What did you like least?

The story was the best thing about this book, Naam is an excellent writer and I've been waiting anxiously for the release of this book only to have my ears violated by Stephanie Canon's racist and offensive portrayals of some of my favorite characters in literature.


Who was your favorite character and why?

I really like Fang. A loyal and strong character with a great sense of humor (for a posthuman killing machine that is) then Stephanie Canon shows up and takes a big plop on him, ruining his part in the book, making me cringe at the writing that was properly voiced in the first two books. Boooo Stephanie Canon, boooo.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Stephanie Canon?

Gilbert Gottfried would have been a better choice. Ben Affleck would have been better, Emo Phillips, Paul Reubens, Bobcat Goldthwait would all have done a better job. Mickey Rooney in his portrayal of Mr Yunioshi in Breakfast at Tiffany's would have come up even. What were you guys thinking??? But seriously, get Mikael Naramore back and do it again.


Do you think Apex needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, the story is done. anything more would be guilding the lilly. I do however think Apex needs to be re-recorded by someone who doesn't have a subconscious hatred of the asian people.


Any additional comments?

As you can tell I'm furious. I demand a re-recording at the personal expense of the people who put their stamp of approval on Stephanie Canon's performance. Those people should be fired... from a cannon... into manure.

Excellent book and conclusion but suffers from TERRIBLE reader and performance

Great finale to this series, but plagued by horribly racist cartoon-ish portrayal from the voice actor. It's a good story with an embarrassing performance...
