About the Author

A love of reading as a kid allowed me to explore worlds with dragons, spaceships, robots, and antiques cars. I've always had stories in my brain, and I've finally had the time to let them out onto the page. I'm a father of 4 who's been married for 15 years, and is more and more in love everyday.

This interesting view on the future by A. J. Leavens was an enjoyable read. In a distant future where Big Brother is always watching and the nations of earth are unified under a single government, trained killers are used to pacify anyone who might be seen as a threat to the system. The story begins with two seemingly disconnected government hitmen hunting different people across the globe. As they search for their targets, hidden government secrets begin coming to light, eventually pitting one protagonist against the other. The plot is well-paced with a variety of twists and turns that kept me guessing about the true motives of the antagonist right up to the end. There's no shortage of action. From fire-fights to hand-to-hand combat, stealth to hot pursuit, the story unfolds with plenty of action that doesn't go stale while reading. What I found most intriguing was the thought put into the design of technology used throughout the world. Artificial intelligences have an almost-human feel and mimicking the physical appearance of others is explained in such a way that it is believable in the world Leavens has created. I agree to some respect with other reviewers that the world has a Blader Runner feel. And as someone who enjoyed that film I see the comparison as a positive. Though the story is set in a distant future, there are plenty of (modern to us) references to pop culture icons ancient to the setting such as the Beatles. As a guy in his thirties with an old soul, it was refreshing to read a book where a protagonist in a setting such as this seemed to long for a simpler time. This is sure to be an enjoyable read for fans of hard science fiction and dystopian futures. It blends the two nicely.
