Kaleidocide By Dave Swaverly Brings Back ‘Blade Runner’ Action

 

 

This sequel continues Swaverly’s amazing work first presented in Silhouette. For those who are unaware of this technologically abundant series, all you need to do is think of ‘Blade Runner;’ a movie that proved to everyone the TOMKaleidocideterrors and oddities our future may bring.

 

Main character, Michael Ares, is what you would call confused. He is living in San Francisco after a huge quake that changed ‘normal’ life as he knew it. No longer run by a government, San Fran actually belongs to a company called BASS. This ‘Big Brother’-type company moved in and created the city-state, using their protection officers called, peacers, to keep the citizens in line.

 

BASS has a variety of things in the works, but one is a secret technological breakthrough that involves anti-gravity. If the technology works, BASS would become the imminent power in the world, upsetting more than a few other countries and rulers along the way.

 

Ares is actually at the helm of BASS – and not happy about it. Not only is he completely in the dark as to why he’s inherited the mantle, but he also has to worry about a slew of attempts now being made on his life. More than one person wants him out of the way, including a powerful Chinese general.

 

All Ares has on his side is one friend he can trust. That friend just happens to have his own company that deals in protection – a gift that Ares definitely needs if he’s going to survive the attacks on his life long enough to discover what or who is at the root of his deathly fate.

 

Although set in the ‘near’ future, this is a book that delves into serious futuristic technology, like aerocars and shoot-to-kill officers. The author has done a good job with this continuation, tackling the science fiction/suspense genre with gusto. Fans will most definitely love this follow-up, as they stand beside Ares and see if he can get through his adventure alive.

 

Until Next Time, Everybody,

Amy Lignor
