It's April 2033. Climate change has bared its teeth, bringing drought, heat-waves and food riots.
Ayden Walker's job is to limit environmental damage from climate change, greed, or plain incompetence, so he is shocked to learn that his parents had been involved in illegal genetic experimentation.
But what he learns next shakes the very foundations of his existence.
Ayden stumbles across something that could change the course of humanity if he doesn't stop it, except... he's not so sure he should.
But someone has him under surveillance and it becomes clear they have no intention of allowing him to interfere. He's forced to seek an uneasy alliance with military intelligence as he hunts for the truth.
Then Ayden discovers that his adversary will kill to keep his secrets.

I received a free digital copy from the author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I’m actually a little shocked by how much I liked this story. This is not the kind of story I usually read but it was very well written and surprisingly good. It’s obvious that the author did a lot of research for this novel. There was a lot of information in this story and the attention to detail was fantastic. Certain aspects in the middle of the book made it kind of drag a little but other than that, this was a really good book.
Oh. My. Goodness. This was a great book. Self-published work can truly be a hit or miss prospect, and this one was definitely a hit (at least for me). The bulk of the book takes place about 20 years from now, and I found the tech advances imagined by Mr. Munro to be completely believable. It's hard to know what to say about this book, because it was just so good. I'm not sure I agree with some of his views about climate change, but it's definitely true about the world straining Earth's resources with it's exploding population, so I found it believable and a bit scary. Ayden was a strong character - brilliant, determined, and definitely devoted to ferreting out the truth. There were a lot of secondary characters and sometimes it was hard (deliberately so) to know who was telling the truth about what. The villain was great, and equally stubborn. I'm really excited to know there's a sequel in the works, so will definitely keep my eye out for that. Yeah, there's not much to say about this one other than READ IT! Thanks Mr. Munro!
