THE FUTURE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT

Sequel to 0.4

In the far future, people no longer know what to believe…Did Kyle Straker ever exist? Or were his prophecies of human upgrades nothing more than a hoax?

Peter Vincent is nearly 16, and has never thought about the things that Strakerites believe. His father — David Vincent, creator of the artificial bees that saved the world’s crops — made sure of that.

When the Strakerites pronounce that another upgrade is imminent, Peter starts to uncover a conspiracy amongst the leaders of the establishment, a conspiracy that puts him into direct conflict with his father. But it’s not a good idea to pick a fight with someone who controls all the artificial bees in the world.

“This sequel is even better than the first book. I don’t want to spoil anything for those who have not read the first book. So not much of a review but this series is thought provoking and action packed. You won’t be disappointed with this series if you like your books fast paced but also some conspiracy and mystery. ” Review by Duchovney
