Publisher's Summary

In the year 2047, neural implants have given a small slice of the population superhuman abilities. Are these Aeons brilliant humanitarians dedicated to saving civilization, or venal psychopaths bent on its destruction?
When Sarah Fenton is recruited out of her orphanage into a mysterious government program, this question becomes her mission. Answering it incorrectly could spell the end of the human race.
Her only path to the truth lies in beguiling an Aeon named Nick Lal, the reclusive scion of one of the planet's wealthiest families. Even as Sarah realizes she's falling in love with him, she begins to fear that he is not as innocent as he appears.
As famine and religious strife threaten to push the nation into a three-way civil war, Sarah's time runs short. Will she be wily enough to choose correctly and save the world?

What I 'Should Have' Learned from Sci Fi

False Idols is a good book set in the not too distant future It deals with several uncomfortable themes: a possible downside of our quickly developing technology, the human desire for the ultimate improvements to the human race in mind & body, the ease in which a small group of people can have a great influence over the world, and potentially cause a police state to be put into effect due to the actions of that small group of people.

Sadly while the narrator, Adam Zens, does grow on you, his narration is too fast and the serious lack of punctuation made the story hard to follow at times, though some of this could be a result of the editors. I started & stopped this book a few times before biting the bullet letting it play all the way through. In addition to slowing the pace and more use of punctuation, I would like to see him be a little more consistent with the distinct voices of the lead characters.

This audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review.

False Idols

Any additional comments?

False Idols is a Science fiction that could become reality as an elite few who, thanks to pre-existing vast wealth, can afford the inordinately expensive Mindwave technology that makes them superior to their fellow humans. However, once they become Aeons, they proudly proclaim themselves as False Idols.
