Description

It's the eve of the twenty-second century: a world where the dearly departed send postcards back from Heaven and evangelicals make scientific breakthroughs by speaking in tongues; where genetically engineered vampires solve problems intractable to baseline humans. And it s all under surveillance by an alien presence. Daniel Bruks is a field biologist in a world where biology has turned computational. He s turned his back on humanity, but awakens one night to find himself at the center of a storm that will turn all of history inside-out. He s trapped on a ship bound for the center of the solar system. A vampire and its entourage of zombie bodyguards lurk in the shadows behind. And dead ahead, a handful of rapture-stricken monks takes them all to a meeting with something they will only call The Angels of the Asteroids. "

Professional reviews

"This long-awaited sci-fi follows Watts's Hugo-nominated BLINDSIGHT. The plot is complex, yet narrator Adam J. Rough is able to maintain a moderately steady and meticulous narration. He's highly skilled at differentiating characters with vocal nuances. There's no confusion, for example, between Valerie the engineered vampire and the garrulous Sengupta. Most enjoyable is the agitated biologist Daniel BrŸks, who is thrown into the middle of a species war that leads him on a journey he didn't ask for. Rough captures his frustration to a tee. As narrator, he's constantly moving with the text, playing with language that shapes this volatile world of androids, aliens, zombies, and posthumans. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
