For a million years, the human population was less than 26,000 people. By the year 2062, ten billion individuals crowded the planet.
As humanity faced its greatest challenge, two global corporations merge to deliver a radical solution: the construction of concentric spheres encircling the planet. For almost a thousand years, the new world was astonishingly empty, but as the tionsphere approaches capacity, its universal processing service starts to fail, threatening the lives of the obsessively-connected people.
Caitlyn and her small team of contract theorists accept the impossible task of understanding why. They discover individuals who seemingly pre-date the tionsphere, including one who plans to destroy everything within Tion’s spheres. Pazel is intent on killing thousands of billions of people to preserve an elite population tailored to his own desires.
Set on an immense scale, Tionsphere follows ordinary workers surviving in a world overflowing with people distracted by their technology and threatened by a life without it.
“The tension is palpable, the dialogue complex and the artifice of life itself intelligently exposed by those who break the chain. For serious science fiction fans, Tionsphere marks the beginning of a complex new series with plenty to think about long after the intense reading experience is over, and it’s therefore highly recommended for hardcore fans of the genre.” – Readers’ Favorite
