    In the near future, the nano-drug Nexus can link mind to mind. There are some who want to improve it. There are some who want to eradicate it. And there are others who just want to exploit it. When a young scientist is caught improving Nexus, he’s thrust over his head into a world of danger and international espionage, with far more at stake than anyone realizes.

    This guy might be great one day

    The good:
    * Excellent opening, chapters, starting at a californian rave and spreading across the planet.

Riot police battle neutrally linked protestors. Armies are mobilized. Political orders fall. Nexus-driven revolution is in here. Against this backdrop a new breed of post-human children are growing into their powers.

    Furious ranting review. Worst narration ever

    The story was the best thing about this book, Naam is an excellent writer and I've been waiting anxiously for the release of this book only to have my..Show More »
