Two years after the devastation of mass human extinctions in kill zones, mankind is still grasping for survival. An oppressive union of government and big business controls an exhausted America, which is divided between walled-in Protectorates and the unpoliced Outlands. Against this chaotic backdrop, paleobiologist and genetic researcher Mark Freedman and policewoman Sarah Mayfair continue their evolution into transhumansnanotech hybrids with a connection to the god machine, the artificial intelligence that caused the recent massacres, in an effort to derail the destruction of the Earth's biosphere.More
"Bohacz's vision of a humanity that faces the need to evolve profoundly or face certain destruction is as timely as today's news and as chilling a doomsday scenario as any ecological catastrophe can suggest..." (Publisher's Weekly Starred Review)
"There is enough power in the premise to leave readers reeling. A novel that will surprise fans of science-fiction and doomsday scenarios..." (Kirkus Reviews)
"S.J. Higbee: Bohacz manages to provide a gripping plot with plenty of twists and turns that kept up the tension right to the very end. Bohacz has aimed very high with this techie yarn about why we are here and what might happen next and even if techno-thrillers aren't normally your favorite genre, give this book a go. I'm betting that you'll still be thinking about it when some of your favorite authors have faded into the furniture." (S. J. Higbee)

Unbelievably Well Done!!!
Quite likely. There was a great deal of detail in both books of this series that another listen will probably bring additional levels of understanding and depth to my emotional experiences with both books in this series.
The narrator did such a fabulous job, in both this book, and Immortality, of bringing each character to life through different voices. The emotional range he put behind the voice of each character made it almost impossible to stop listening when I had to go to work, to sleep or meet other life requirements,
If it was not 20 hours long, I likely would have attempted to gobble it up all in one listen. Immortality, the first book of the series, was exactly the same. I could hardly wait for this book to download so I could continue with the story.
