Publisher's Summary

Desperate to prove that he has found the unified field theory in the Bible, young mathematics prodigy Jacob Saylor runs away to the Middle East. But when he and his brother venture into the desert they disappear, only to return years later with no memory of where they have been. Jacob's fragmented mind descends into madness and nearly a decade passes before he can find a way to hold onto his sanity. Daily life becomes a struggle and he makes ends meet by working and sleeping in his father's old garage.

Then a group of cybernetic terrorists calling themselves The Embodied attack. Having discarded their humanity for bodies of living technology they serve their masters by secretly manipulating world events, eliminating enemies, and toppling nations. Explosions claim thousands of lives across the country and Jacob watches in horror as his family is lost. But then he sees that his 11-year-old niece has survived - and something inside of him snaps. She's trying to crawl from the wreckage on broken limbs, and he knows that he's the only one who can save her.

What he does next changes the world as he manipulates the very fabric of reality.

Now The Embodied are seeking him and he will have to overcome the horrors of his past if he is to fight for our survival. But the most terrifying demons he must face are his own, and redemption will mean returning to the source of his torment. Time is running out and the only way forward is for him to face the consequences of tampering in God's domain.

Now the world needs this shattered soul to find a way through his pain to fight for humanity. Can he become what we so desperately need...one last and final hero?

    "My reaction..."
    Any additional comments?

    This is a highly imaginative and {in my extensive experience with science fiction} a unique story. Jason Faris has wrapped several plot threads together to present scientific and philosophical ideas in a manner you’ve not seen before. These include applications of artificial intelligence, cybernetics, nano machines, quantum effects, religion, and even a little space travel. The advertizing blurb discusses only one of these threads. This is a rather long book and the reader/listener must exercise some patients through the first third of the story as the various plots and characters are developed. While section breaks and other visual clues might help a reader of the physical book sort these out, the audio listener will find the beginning of the book a bit confusing. However, have faith, the threads come together and eventually all make sense.

    This is a SciFi story and we must suspend some degree of belief as we allow the writer to create his world. However, in my humble opinion, Mr. Faris took this a bit too far and lapsed from the realm of science fiction to science fantasy. Additionally, several unnecessarily wordy sections present distractions. Some of these are in the middle of high energy action scenes, and thus, really break up the mood for the reader.

    The book reader/narrator, Judy Rounda, began the story with an energy all her own. I was very pleased with her use of voice inflections and effects as she helped the listener through the disjointed beginning of the book. However, she lost this zeal as the book progressed and did little more than simply read the story toward the ending.

    Bottom line: a rewarding reading experience, but you must put forth some of your own effort to follow the {audio} storyline.

    "A very interesting book"

    As a whole, I did enjoy this book. There were parts that I felt a little lost him. Also, there were some aspects of it, specifically the military portions, that I thought were excessively detailed in a manner that made it hard to follow and seemed almost like a technical "word dump". That is most likely because of my personal background in the military. I'm not sure if the author had a military consultant when writing these books. I definitely plan to listen to/read the other books of the series. A friend that listen to this book while driving with me stated "I could see them turning this into a TV show".

    "More Enthusiastic Narrator "

    This is most definitely my new favorite book. especially when the suspense keeps you from doing your job and out of all the King or Koontz ive read, this has painted a better picture with an original story line than any of the others.
