Publisher's Summary

In the future, humans will no longer rule the world. Elites have taken control of civilised society; humans exist merely to serve. Elites are genetically modified, technologically enhanced versions of humankind. Originally designed and created by man, they were intended to save humanity. Instead, they have slowly usurped humans from leadership and have made them their subjects.

Animosity between Elites and humans is fierce, and many rebels fight back against Elite rule. Hays Baker is a high-ranking agent in the Elite forces and at the forefront of keeping the humans under control. However, Hays is unknowingly hiding a secret that will make him the greatest threat to the Elite regime, and their number one target.

Now hunted by the people he used to work alongside, Hays searches for the truth of his identity. But to understand this, he must first learn of a greater truth, hidden within the rule of the Elite.

    "good but not overwhelming"

    An honest sci fi thriller. Maybe too sentimental. sci fi might not please to pure thriller lovers. Good, but not outstanding performance of Matt Bomer, excellent in the series "White collar" but not at his best here.
    I didn't like mixing music and words at the beginning of each part. Makes understanding words more difficult.
    Chapters seemed to be gathered into sections without any clear plan.

    "an OK book"

    I enjoyed elements of this book - the idea of humans being overtaken by intelligent hybrids worked well. It moved at a decent pace, wasn't hard to follow, and a good ending which tied things up well and didn't leave the reader hanging. The story was filled with a few well placed unexpected twists, which always ups the interest level. There are some passages that were a bit too unbelievable and I felt the author lost his track and it got a bit tedious when the main character is fleeing from country to country to rally together resistance fighters. I agree that this is very light fluffy sci fi fiction for passing the time, but if you like this kind of thing then it's quite a good book. Definitively aimed at the late teen market.

    "Toys - James Patterson"

    Fantastic fast paced thriller, I devoured it like a hungry dog! Narrator is very easy to listen to, only drawback over 100 chapters. Patterson at his best.

    "Bond plus Superman"

    This is a teenagers book, if you are an adult move on. Very American with some background lift music. Definitely Sci-Fi light.
