This is a wonderfully complex and well-thought-out piece of fiction. Speculative fiction is a fascinating genre, so this was truly a treat to read. The plot is extremely realistic, the details are great, the characters are believable and it leaves you wondering at the end if this scenario is actually possible!
All in all, I think Doc Carson has produced a fantastic work. There are countless points at which I found myself pausing and wondering, “Would that actually work?” or “Oh wow, I hadn’t thought about that. Would this much chaos really happen? Could we actually not handle finding a solution to this?” Good fiction totally grips you and makes you want to keep reading, makes you think and this story has done just that. The characters are varied, believable, flawed and relatable. The tone is great; it has humor thrown in at just the right moments and in perfect doses.
The bits of different language interspersed worked well as this is an international novel and gives that much more flavor to the scenes that take place all over the world. I read this with same enthusiasm that I did The DaVinci Code or a classic Tom Clancy story. I think it has huge potential, as it is very relevant to things going on today locally and internationally, and countless audiences will connect with it and captivated by it.
