Secrets are often best kept... secret.
In The Trillionist Sage Rojan, genius inventor and futurist, stands before 'Judge and Jury,' not to defend past deeds, but to plead for the lives of the millions of people placed in mortal jeopardy by his own ill-considered actions.
'These are the actions of a madman', one says.
'Perhaps the result of a life filled with genius,' whispers another.
Sage Rojan knows the truth, and it's up to him to make things right. But before he can save the world, he must first save himself.
"There are no inconsequentials," Rojan pleads to Judge and Jury, "Even a single atom can affect the world around it. Those atoms and their orbiting electrons exist in an expanse small enough that, if you removed all of the space between them, an entire solar system would fit into an area the size of a sugar cube.
Every being, large, small, brilliant, or foolish, depends on the contribution of the others. Where is the wisdom if intelligence is not used in the service of compassion?"
Author Sagan Jeffries exposes all - the who, what, when, where, why and how - revealing the life of Sage Rojan: boy genius, turned madman, turned savior.

This novel is the story of a young man named Sage Rojan. Even from birth, Sage's parents knew that he was "different." In the crib, it looked like he was talking to someone. He spoke in complete sentences at a very young age. As a child, Sage would suddenly fly into a rage, for no apparent reason. He was also incredibly smart. The reason was that Sage had a Presence, not an actual being, living inside him. The Presence needed a technologically advanced planet, so, with its "help," Sage invented all sorts of techno-marvels. It started with a way to learn what was happening on the other side of the world. Imagine if America had technologically progressed from the light bulb to the Internet, within ten years. Sage becomes the most popular person in the world. The Presence thought nothing of taking over Sage's body, working it past the point of exhaustion, and letting Sage deal with the aftermath. He couldn't tell anyone about the Presence, because his popularity would vanish, and he would be thrown in the equivalent of a mental hospital. His popularity did vanish, because the Presence's single-minded determination turned Sage into a mean, rotten person. In space, Sage is forced to build a thing which goes very wrong. It starts moving toward Sage's planet, and will destroy the planet if it reaches it. An attempt to tow it out of the way is a failure. A plan to teleport the whole population to another world never gets going. The only possibility is for Sage to plead his case before The Artisan, the being which created the universe. Does he succeed? Does The Artisan help Sage get rid of the Presence, once and for all? The story is very easy to read, and does a fine job at showing a society in technological fast-forward. From start to finish, it is very much worth reading.
'The Trillionist' by Sagan Jeffries (pen name for Ed Lukowich) is a great futuristic sci-fi novel. It provides a new amazing view of our universe built within a captivating story. I highly recommend it.
