Publisher's Summary

In a post-apocalyptic future, humanity survives within a single city run by a shadowy benefactor known only as The Family. Each week, the death lottery claims more lives and Gerry Cardle, head of the lottery, inexplicably finds himself next on the list. Something's wrong with the system. A deadly artificial intelligence has breached security. Gerry has just seven days to live. Forced off the grid, Gerry has to do the unthinkable: willingly leave the city. What he finds in the abandoned lands will shatter his perception of what it means to be human. Everything he had been told before was a lie. In a deadly world of conspiracies, Gerry has to sacrifice everything he loves in order to save it, and time is running out.

This is fast paced and very, very tech, almost overly so. Everyday conversation is most likely going to have words related to computers, even if they are talking about going to the bathroom. I personally could not get into it, but I do see where several people will like it. I could not connect to the characters and it was too much to fast for me. Someone just about dies or does die every five minutes. It begin by reminding me of Clarke's, City of The Stars, only as if it was written by William Gibson. It will probably make a good B Movie.

I will not continue the series.

A futuristic western.

The book was well narrated. While the characters are interesting their motivations and reasoning don't make much sense. The overall story is easy to understand but not simplistic or well thought-out. Too many questions were left unanswered as to why characters do the things they do, which leaves the story lacking.

Never the less, it is entertaining.
