Publisher's Summary

Multiple alien factions have a stake in humanity's development, and livable worlds are hard to come by, but the monstrosity lurking within planet Thuun's depths can only mean one thing:
Humanity, as we know it, will forever be changed.
Enforcer Silhouette returns to tackle another interplanetary mission by the order of the tenacious Senator Folami.
Colonization on Thuun has come to a halt, and its residents have gone silent. Silhouette joins a team of terraformation specialists and ragtag mercenaries in an effort to bring the facility back online. The crew expects to find death and destruction, but what they discover is madness.
When one of the scientists goes missing, Silhouette follows the trail to an underground labyrinth that may hold the answer to Thuun's mysteries.

Good to the last drop

I have read all his books and I wish more people would discover the universe he has created! The only reason you haven't heard of this author yet is because he hasn't been discovered!!!! I was pulled in by the a-typical protagonist and her caricature development. I cant help but be interested in the cold, emotionally stunted hero. The caricatures are interesting, dark, and raw. I am always fascinated by the descriptions of tech and the alien universe these stories are set in. I was sucked in the story and found myself exclaiming outloud several times, up to the very last few pages.
This is not a feel good/everything wraps up sci-fi. It's interesting, dark, and pulls no punches on the reality of making difficult universe changing decisions. I was a fan of this book the whole way through and was really interested with the last 5 pages (trust me).

I am a big fan of the chosen narrator: she has a great cadence and an interesting accent that gives the book an exotic flavor.

A Good Solid Story

Deceit of Humanity is an engaging read with believable characters and a gripping plot. The protagonist, Silhouette, is three-dimensional and her thoughts and feelings are integral to the story. Her experiences are described in a real and believable manner. I am not a sci-fi enthusiast, but enjoyed this book. The integration of technology was seemless, believable, and not over-powering.

Zehra Jane Naqvi's accent adds a degree of exotic, other-worldliness to the presentation that enhances the experience.
