    When out-of-shape IT technician Roen wakes up and starts hearing voices in his head, he naturally assumes he’s losing it. He isn’t. As of last night, he has a passenger in his brain - an ancient alien life-form called Tao, whose race crash-landed on Earth before the first fish crawled out of the oceans. Over the millennia his people have trained human heroes to be great leaders, to advance our species at a rate far beyond what it would have achieved on its own. Split into two opposing factions - the peace-loving, but under-represented Prophus, and the savage, powerful Genjix - the aliens have been in a state of civil war for centuries.

    Cameron Tan wouldn't have even been in Greece if he hadn't gotten a 'D' in Art History.

Then the emergency notification comes in: a Prophus agent with vital information needs immediate extraction, and Cameron is the only agent on the ground, responsible for getting the other agent and data out of the country.

    Action, Abenteuer und Aliens - Wesley Chus SF-Thriller "Die Leben des Tao" ist der Auftakt einer Trilogie, in der sich ein durchschnittlicher Nerd zum Top-Geheimagenten mausert.

Und fast ebenso lange tobt unbemerkt ein heftiger Krieg.
