Publisher's Summary

The first two books in the Singularity's Children series.

Book one - Denial

Tense, intelligent science fiction packed with ideas. 

Debt, wars, and inequality are pushing society toward collapse. It's a world desiccated by soulless algorithms, pacified beneath the battle suit's boot, and numbed by the bewitching voices of computational propaganda. 

Singularity's Children is vivid world-building. The desperate lives of its characters draw the listener into a terrifyingly familiar world only a butterfly flap away.

Book two - Disruption

It takes us deeper into an action-packed riot of haves and have-nots; a vivid alternate future filled with Buddhist commandos, stolen Femto-tech, AI sages, and quantum consciousness.

A decade after economic collapse sent the world’s governments toppling like dominoes, the corporations are back on top. Their AI farms have relieved society of the drudgery of work, leaving behind a broiling underclass precariat. The Forward governments pacify their rabbles with computer-generated titillation, while channeling legions of the desperate into overseas peacekeeping.

Subversive, fast-paced action. A provocative excursion into a near-future civilization struggling to survive the maelstrom of post-human forces its technology is unleashing.

Is Toby Weston Predicting The Future?

As I finish the first part of this amazingly narrated story, I can't help but think that this is the world that we are headed to. An automated labor force creating inequality and destabilizing the world that we live in. Some groups flourishing others not, and the powers that be doing everything possible to keep the general populace pacified and poor. The story has a wide array of interesting characters, a ton of technology that I'm sure we will see in the near future, and an action-packed plot. Highly recommended to fans of sci-fi.

too many PoV characters

I think I got to chapter 7 before new point-of-view characters stopped being introduced. Not sure because none of them were interesting to me. I thought I would enjoy anything read by Peter Kenny, but I was wrong. Returning for a refund.

Slight technical issues

The amazing Peter Kenny performs this book exceptionally well. There was a technical issue with the speed of the first few chapters. Too fast.

The book is a great introduction to Toby Weston. It reads like early Peter F Hamilton. Well reasoned plots and clear sympathetic characters. Some consideration of global issues and solutions without being preachy. Entertainment.
