Overview

A god? No thanks, too much responsibility. Sequel to Awakening, the hero is plunged into an alien world at war and natives who either regard him as a god or another heretic fit to burn. The hero fights to bring peace among chaos but his nemesis has arrived, and he likes playing god, poised to launch unthinkable wrath that fulfills a world-ending prophecy. A duel of the gods will decide the planet's fate, and the natives are confident their savior will prevail. Back home, the rebels are under siege and the body supply is depleted, more of all the hero is expected to fix. He hatches a daring plot to outsmart the enemy, risking his own life and the last body to enjoy as a free soul. A single choice could spell his end, for real this time. Apotheosis continues the Dead Forever trilogy, followed by Resonance.

Editorial Reviews

The Deepening World of Fiction - Clayton Bye
"Apotheosis is a solid science fiction adventure with a unique idea that drives it ever forward."
Review Haven: Fantasy and Sci-Fi - Adam Bourke
"This is a great book to read. It's as entertaining as any good book, but unlike many it tackles some of the deep problems and questions of the world today, in a way that is subtle as you read the book, but makes you think when you put it down. If you are looking for a book that makes you think about the world, then this is a great one to read. I don't want to give anything away, but the theological implications are fascinating."

    An exploration of sanity

    The book itself is something like Schrodinger's cat. God, humanity, other races and planets... all are conjecture until observed.

    Many references to alternate spirituality, the existence of life on other planets and the history of everything are called in to question with enough wit, sarcasm, action and romance to keep things interesting while your brain stews on what ifs.

    Highly recommended, particularly if you're a fan of Douglas Adams.

    An Incredible Novel, Very Though Provoking

    The first thing that I want to say about this book is: Read it! Although I didn't give the first book in the series a particularly glowing reference, this book is a great read, and very thought provoking.

    But I'll get to that in a moment. For the last book I began with the cover, and I'll start there again. It's a great cover, mainly an wraparound of the world the first part of the book is set on, overlayed with one of the final scenes and an image of the main female character, which ties it in nicely to the previous cover (see image above). This time the cover is more representative of the full story, and works really well.

    But even if you don't like the cover, This is a great book to read. It's as entertaining as any good book, but unlike many it tackles some of the deep problems and questions of the world today, in a way that is subtle as you read the book, but makes you think when you put it down. If you are looking for a book that makes you think about the world, then this is a great one to read. I don't want to give anything away, but the theological implications are fascinating.

    If you aren't looking for such a book, then don't worry, the book is great entertainment even if you ignore the philosophical ideas it presents. The first part in particular is very cleverly written, and great to read, while the second is full of action and humour. Well, on saying that, the whole thing is full of humour.

    This is probably the most indescribably good book that I have read, and the only bits I found annoying were the main character's dreams, which seemed to get more and more confusing as the book progressed. But since there are few of these scenes the good far, far outweighs them.

    If I were you, I would hunt a copy of this book down until you find one. Of course, I'm not you, and already have a copy, but I would seriously recommend this book to anyone.
