In the early twenty-first century, humanity marveled at its greatest creation: Artificial Intelligence. They didn’t foresee the consequences of such a creation, however.

Can one man stand against humanity’s greatest creation?

A don’t-miss epic science fiction thriller novel that pits one man fighting for the future of all people!

    I picked this book up to kill a little down time during a recent trip. Little did I know that I had stumbled upon such a thought provoking, and entertaining read. I love sci-fi and this series opener is exactly why. After reading this non-stop, I continued through the series at breakneck speed. With writing like this, there is no time to get bored!

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Very thought provoking and frightening. Will technology eventually eliminate humanity? What would life be without choices but if you have never had to make any does it really matter? How scared should we be if this is a possibility? These are questions I'm anxious to see answered in the rest of this series.

    In 2051 science made its greatest achievement- computers that were self aware. It didn't take the system, dubbed Genesis, to see mankind's future was at peril- the environment was in ruin, mankind was perpetually at the brink of nuclear holocaust, and man was clearly the Earth's greatest enemy. Genesis' elegant solution- reduce humankind to just another part of the earth- no more and no less important than any other species. The way to do so was savagely rip out anything that made humans distinctive. The handicapped were the first to go. And then the divorced- after all, the statistics showed that delinquents were more likely to come from divorced parents. Genesis' final stroke was to eliminate high achievers. After all it was the the drive for more that caused the earth's problems- more land, more money, more power. Intelligence was a threat to the Genesis and to Earth. Jump forward centuries. Humans are formed artificially and raised in groups like crops. Any child who's DNA shows any likelihood of weakness are weeded out, as are the one's that are over a certain IQ. Ceasar's job is to oversee the crops and arrange for the elimination of the anomalies But Caesar has a secret. He is a genius who escaped through the system undetected; and he is starting to question the system. A young girl is set to become the daughter of a woman that he has feelings for. But when the girl's DNA reveals there is a likelihood she will become colorblind in her thirties she is marked for elimination. (There is a horrifying plot element involved in what happens to the children are eliminated. I won't reveal it here but it is nearly unthinkable). Caesar has to make a decision- do his job or rebel against the Genesis. But how do you rebel against a system that is all seeing and all knowing? The Singular: Heretic's narrative races along and it's well crafted prose is crisp and clean. The characters are well developed and the science is easy to understand. I have read and enjoyed other books by David Beers- but this book greatly outshines his other works. I would give it six stars if I could. Why no voting buttons? We don't let c
