Defiance (Prequel to The Legacy Human) by Susan Kaye Quinn

Most of humanity has ascended into hyper-intelligent human/machine hybrids, but legacy humans like Cyrus Kowalski are used to skirting the laws they've laid down--after all, he knows the ascenders only pretend to care about the legacy pets they keep. But when a woman Cyrus loves like a mother is stricken by a disease the ascenders refuse to cure, he has to decide how far he can go without getting banished from the legacy city that's always been his home.

DEFIANCE is a prequel novella to the first book in the Singularity series, THE LEGACY HUMAN. This young adult science fiction series explores the intersection of mind, body, and soul in a post-Singularity world.

It's not really a's just 28 pages. But it does give a tiny glimpse into this world the author is trying to create.

Well written peek into a world where tech reigns and humans are the zoo creatures. Definitely worth the read.

I enjoyed this prequel to the Legacy series. It is a short read from Cyrus's' view of events that occur before the first book. As usual, it is a good read that wets the appetite for the rest of the series. It does not give anything away so can be read before or after book 1. Reminds or informs, depending on reading order that Cyrus And Eli are tight.
