Genre: Dystopian, Technothriller, Science Fiction
Miran Zyelinski has had enough of ethics and laws getting in the way of progress.
Nothing—not the government, not the church, and certainly not lesser men—will hold back Miran’s vision for humankind: immortality.
Miran will need wealth, brilliance, and ruthlessness to achieve his goal. Andreas can provide wealth, but must be paid in his own currency, and his price is high. Satia has brilliance and ruthlessness to match Miran, but their mix is volatile.
Opposed on all sides, Miran will not waver from his goal of immortality. The question is not whether he will succeed, but who will be left alive when he does.
Based on real-world developments in biology and genetics, this technothriller rolls relentlessly through unexpected twists and continuous shifts of power, culminating in a tempting, disturbing, and altogether-too-likely vision of the future, where one corporation gains almost total control over the world.
Book 1 of 3. Includes The Genesis Files, bonus micro-fiction and art from the world of One God.
Note: contains strong language and some disturbing scenes. For mature readers only.
This was a great book! Miran isn’t about to let ethics, or the law, stand in the way of progress. The ultimate goal is immortality, but the route to it is paved with difficulties and opposition from all sides. The question is no longer if he’ll succeed in creating immortality, but who will be left alive by the time he does. I loved the reference to real-world developments. The characters, in particular Miran, were interesting, and the story entertained me from start to finish.
