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.

My eyes are going bad, and without audible, my mind would certainly go next...
Utterly unoriginal in every way. Just really bad. The dialogue was pitiful, the attempts at humor were just embarrassing, and some (too many) of the voices the narrator used for the characters was almost unbearable - might cause seizures in some listeners. Just really bad. Curse the daily deal! I keep getting suckered in!
Books worth the money are those biographies about our Founding Fathers. Or THE LONG WALK and/or UNBROKEN Try THE LONG WALK a
I've yet to meet him or her. Arafat might enjoy it as he whiles away time in Paradise. .
Can't think of anything.
Not that I can tell.
How do such books find a publisher?
It is a first rate thriller with Einstein level savants and many unexpected plot twists. A fun read!
this is a good book I'm only 11 and I loved it. it's not totally ipropryit for any one under 13 I wold say but it is rily a fun book😃😃😃
Loves a good adventure with heart and lots of laughs.
An imagined world where there is political strife over an anomaly that causes the newer generations to develop as geniuses. After a few global and economic catastrophes are caused by a few less than moral examples of those brilliant people the normal populous panic and attempt to control the abnormal ones in ways that only escalate things to riots, protests and terrorism.
A brilliant terrorist, John Smith needs to be stopped before the world's prejudices are enflamed to all out war so Nick Cooper, also a brilliant, must go under cover to assassinate him.
Daniels does a great job narrating it, but for a story about conflicting geniuses it has every spy action cliche there is and it's easy to see every "surprise" twist coming a mile away. The wonder wore off quickly, turning something potentially unique into something unbelievably common most have already experienced many times over.
Genre: Action Adventure
Audience: Any adult who has watched or read anything involving spys or action.
I am the author of "Inner Fears", a thriller by MFKing. I am a social media manager for Jazz Social Media. Audio books are my main entertainment, and I think the best entertainment offered today.
You can't go wrong with this book if you love good writing and technological thrillers, like Daemon. The writing uses all of the senses, and describes one detail that sets the scene perfectly without boring the reader.
The technology is cutting-edge and interesting; the characters full and deep and engaging.
Will buy the next one immediately--can't wait for credits!
I am brutally honest. Popular, love everything they read, reviewers are scared to go neg. and risk their ranking. It's your money!!!
I just could not get into this. I have read it is a slow start and gets better and of course the usual suspects love it. For my credit I want a book that is good from start to finish. The concept is fairly cool, although it has been done before. You would think that having an increase in brilliant people would be good for us, but suppose you had just an above average intelligence, worked your way through college and grad school, got good grades, but could not get a job in your field, because of these people who were born brilliant. You can see how these people would be hated.
I have always liked Luke Daniels work.
Story is well written, with strong character development and plot. The book flows well and sucks you in completely. The author took the time to create depth. I listen quite a bit while driving and found myself on tenterhooks throughout the story.
Luke Daniels is an amazing narrator. Each character has a distinct voice in the story. You feel like your immersed in the plot by "hearing" each person play their part of the story.
All in all, this book was a pleasure to read by listening to a wonderfully talented narrator!
