THE CHILD OF DARKNESS IS LIGHT...

Through the viral form of The Chip, The Consortium has solidified their rein over the Earth. Freedom's last hope lies with the free colonies on the moon, Artificial Intelligence, and the will power of Jake Travissi. But another AI is born from the minds who would control us, and he has no interest in the weakness of flesh.

Having lost everything, Jake joins the resistance in the ultimate battle to bring back free will. From tank battles in Riyadh to sabotaging the International Space Agency's station in orbit around the earth, Jake is sucked into a maelstrom of conflict, which lands him on the moon to face the solar system's most vicious foe, an AI named Constantine who feels humanity's exit from the universe is long overdue.

In a final battle for the survival of the human race, and his own mind, Jake travels to Riyadh, Kennedy Space Center, Guilvinec, Vancouver, Banff, DC, Silicon Valley, Denver and the Moon. As he persevers, Jake must determine what is real, and what is illusion crafted by his AI enemy to misdirect his actions.

Meet the Author

In 1998, author Sven Michael Davison was like a lot of others of his generation, a young man with a dream, an old car, two suitcases, two hundred dollars in his pocket, and a pretty good-sized student loan. After stints in Colorado, New York, and Beaver Island, Michigan, and having written a screenplay that was produced and a first novel, he moved back to Los Angeles and started working as a temp at Twentieth Century Fox. The rest of the story is hardly ordinary.

After a few years, his job came with titles likes "Head of" and "VP of" at Fox, and soon he was fluent in all new technologies relating to information delivery. But there was always something about being a writer that drew him back to the vivid places within his imagination, so at the end of ten years he left the corporate world to return to writing full time just as he was offered a promotion.

The God Head Trilogy explores Sven's abiding interest in Popular Science, Ray Kurzweil's Singularity Theory, and many other futuristic themes. He became fascinated with chip implants that could not only track people, but also ultimately control them. It was an opportunity for him to explore themes about the narcissistic nature of society, consumerism, fear politics, and technology gone wrong.

Sven has always loved science fiction but has longed to know what happened between today and the distant tomorrow. His God Head Trilogy is a dark exploration of a hauntingly possible near future.

To date, Sven's life journey has taken him to all of the seven continents. He is an ordained minister, walked forty feet on his hands on stage during a concert, eaten guinea pig and a whole fish-heads, gills, and all-and spoke like Arnold Schwarzenegger during a Fox press event.

Sven lives in Los Angeles with his wife and young son and is decidedly unsure about which parallel universe he inhabits or when he will be able to turn his head 480 degrees.
