Publisher's Summary

The explosive conclusion to the best-selling Brilliance Trilogy.
For 30 years humanity struggled to cope with the brilliants, the one percent of people born with remarkable gifts. For 30 years we tried to avoid a devastating civil war.
We failed.
The White House is a smoking ruin. Madison Square Garden is an internment camp. In Wyoming, an armed militia of thousands marches toward a final, apocalyptic battle.
Nick Cooper has spent his life fighting for his children and his country. Now, as the world staggers on the edge of ruin, he must risk everything he loves to face his oldest enemy - a brilliant terrorist so driven by his ideals that he will sacrifice humanity's future to achieve them.
From "one of our best storytellers" (Michael Connelly) comes the blistering conclusion to the acclaimed series that is a "forget-to-pick-up-milk, forget-to-water-the-plants, forget-to-eat total immersion experience" (Gillian Flynn).

Brilliant! Incredible! Wonderful!

Written in Fire completes the three novel Brilliance Saga. Note that these books MUST be read in order written or they will make no sense at all.

The genre of the Brilliance Saga is contemporary sci-fi; that is, it occurs in a fictionally faltered present. One percent of the populations are classified as brilliant. That one percent is discriminated against and they rebel violently.

These three books are likely destined to be classics, but probably as a single book. This saga is a must read even for those who do normally like science fiction. Luke Daniels does a great job of narration.

It is ironic that Written in Fire was released on the same day as Destroyer: Rewinder Book 2 by Brett Battles which is another much anticipated and unusual contemporary science fiction novel.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Could do without all the sex

The story was good, the narration excellent. The story could have been excellent if the unnecessary sex was removed. Clearly the author believes that personal sexual gratification is more important than raising children you've already spawned. I'm not a big fan of that way of thinking.
