From Marcus Sakey, "a modern master of suspense" (Chicago Sun-Times) and "one of our best storytellers" (Michael Connelly), comes an adventure that’s at once breakneck thriller and shrewd social commentary; a gripping tale of a world fundamentally different and yet horrifyingly similar to our own, where being born gifted can be a terrible curse.

Young and dumb and fun and looking for a way to solve life's problems through my love of books. ♡
I don't normally listen to mystery suspense type of novels but Marcus Sakey does an AMAZING JOB mixing science fiction with real life suspense. Think I've found a new favorite author.
Sakey told a good story and for saw today's political climate. Prophetic as to the climate of fear and falsehoods that dominated our recent presidential election
Post apocalyptic listener with some thrillers mixed in. Follow me on twitter at @drewsant
Wow I had put off getting ‘Brilliance’ for a while not wanting to start another series but I wish I hadn’t. The book was well written and kept me going from start to finish with very little down time. The characters were great, if a bit typical (ruthless bad guy, true hearted good guy, etc) and interesting and their dynamics make it tons of fun. The plot is interesting and fast paced and unique which makes it all the more interesting. I can’t wait to move on in the series!
Luke Daniels does an amazing job. I've only heard him do more humorous stories in the past but he can surely do non-stop thrill rides as well! Her really brings the story to life.
loved the whole book. reader so excellent. author fabulous. wow. did not expect such a fantastic book from author I did not know. characters believable. plot easy to follow. every page thrilling. excellent plot. one of best books I've ever read or heard. kudos!!!!!
Got this book on a whim and it was Fantastic. The performance was good all around. The story developed quite well and was a story you'd want to hear the next adventure.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Luke Daniels did a fine job narrating, but the writing was my favorite. Story was interesting and original, with profundities riddled throughout. I found myself tearing up at times, while other time nodding and writing down the wisdom in the text. Well done, this was my first read by Marcus Sakey, and it won't be my last!
