Overview

The greatest tragedy the world has ever known turned out to be the ultimate catalyst for change. In the wake of World War III, which decimated most of the world’s population, the remaining survivors vowed to not continue to repeat the same mistakes of the past. Fortunately, they had something previous generations did not have – advanced technology.

The year is 2117 and this once shattered civilization has become prosperous again. Innovative forms of technology have enabled them to abandon the old model and re-engineer a better way of living for all. Brain implants and genetic modifications have made an entire population educated, healthy, and kind.

Despite the benefits of this technology, it has created some unforeseen side effects that threaten humankind’s existence. When technology proves to be inept at solving the world’s problem, a new hope emerges in the unlikeliest form – a young orphan girl.

Meet the Author

Edward Mullen is a novelist, blogger and podcaster from Vancouver, Canada. His debut novel, THE ART OF THE HUSTLE was published in July 2012 and is available on Amazon and major eBook stores. Since the release of that novel, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. With a growing fan base thirsty for more, he released a second book DESTINY AND FREE WILL - a non-fiction book exploring the belief that everything happens for a reason. Now, his highly anticipated second novel is set to release later in 2013 called PRODIGY - a techno-thriller set in the future focusing on the perils of technology. Born and raised in beautiful British Columbia, Edward developed a love for the wilderness. This love, combined with an innate curiosity about all things, eventually spawned a healthy imagination for storytelling. He continued to follow his natural passion all the way through to university. Despite spending a lot of his time indoors writing, Edward continues to enjoy the outdoors. He is an avid tennis player, mountain biker, snowboarder, runner, and traveller.

My 2nd favorite of 5 books I've read by this author. 215 pages, easy read. Good ideas. Subject matter more for teens and young adults, also enjoyable for older readers.

If you expect realistic and logical descriptions and science, this is not your book. It did keep my curiosity up enough to finish it, but I was not comfortable with the author's lack of understanding of some parts of the story.
