Overview

The Singularity: Heretic by David Beers

One thousand years in the future, humans no longer rule...

In the early twenty-first century, humanity marveled at its greatest creation: Artificial Intelligence. They never foresaw the consequences of such a creation, though...

Now, in a world where humans must meet specifications to continue living, a man named Caesar emerges. Different, both in thought and talent, Caesar somehow slipped through the genetic net meant to catch those like him.

Eyes are falling on Caesar now, though, and he can no longer hide. The Artificial Intelligence wants him dead, but others want him to lead their revolution...

Can one man stand against humanity's greatest creation?

A don't-miss epic science fiction novel that pits one man fighting for the future of all people!

I really enjoyed this book, with an original theme. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

It took me a little to get into the story, but once I was in it was hard to put down. The story is great, the mystery about what is going on is spot on, and the twists and turns keep you swiping the pages eager to see what happens next!

Very well written. The characters are well developed and the story line is well developed. I have read and enjoyed other books by David Beers. He is a great writer. The action in the book keeps moving, which unfortunately means you finish it quickly because you want to keep reading to find out what is going to happen.

I am only half way through the book and I love it already. I can't wait to get off work so I can read more. The author knows how to take all of my favorite genres and mix them together. Horror, science fiction, dystopian. I also really like the way the book is written where one of the characters is also writing a book. I just wish I was a slower reader so I could make his books last longer!!

In 2051 science made its greatest achievement- computers that were self aware. It didn't take the system, dubbed Genesis, to see mankind's future was at peril- the environment was in ruin, mankind was perpetually at the brink of nuclear holocaust, and man was clearly the Earth's greatest enemy. Genesis' elegant solution- reduce humankind to just another part of the earth- no more and no less important than any other species. The way to do so was savagely rip out anything that made humans distinctive. The handicapped were the first to go. And then the divorced- after all, the statistics showed that delinquents were more likely to come from divorced parents. Genesis' final stroke was to eliminate high achievers. After all it was the the drive for more that caused the earth's problems- more land, more money, more power. Intelligence was a threat to the Genesis and to Earth. Jump forward centuries. Humans are formed artificially and raised in groups like crops. Any child who's DNA shows any likelihood of weakness are weeded out, as are the one's that are over a certain IQ. Ceasar's job is to oversee the crops and arrange for the elimination of the anomalies But Caesar has a secret. He is a genius who escaped through the system undetected; and he is starting to question the system. A young girl is set to become the daughter of a woman that he has feelings for. But when the girl's DNA reveals there is a likelihood she will become colorblind in her thirties she is marked for elimination. (There is a horrifying plot element involved in what happens to the children are eliminated. I won't reveal it here but it is nearly unthinkable). Caesar has to make a decision- do his job or rebel against the Genesis. But how do you rebel against a system that is all seeing and all knowing? The Singular: Heretic's narrative races along and it's well crafted prose is crisp and clean. The characters are well developed and the science is easy to understand. I have read and enjoyed other books by David Beers- but this book greatly outshines his other works. I would give it six stars if I could. Why no voting buttons? We don't let c
