Publisher Description

The Singularity. It is the era of the posthuman. Artificial intelligences have surpassed the limits of human intellect. Biotechnological beings have rendered people all but extinct. Molecular nanotechnology runs rampant, replicating and reprogramming at will. Contact with extraterrestrial life grows more imminent with each new day.
Struggling to survive and thrive in this accelerated world are three generations of the Macx clan: Manfred, an entrepreneur dealing in intelligence amplification technology whose mind is divided between his physical environment and the Internet; his daughter, Amber, on the run from her domineering mother, seeking her fortune in the outer system as an indentured astronaut; and Sirhan, Amber’s son, who finds his destiny linked to the fate of all of humanity.

For something is systematically dismantling the nine planets of the solar system. Something beyond human comprehension. Something that has no use for biological life in any form...

Believable enough to scare the **** out of me

Really well written, wish I'd used the dictionary along the way to understand some of the big word in hopes of catching nuances but I think I got it. Will prolly re-read.

Difficult to "get into"

I'm at about 1/5th of the book now. I was very interested in the first free downloadable extract but after that, I started feeling like the book lacks quite some content and the author just threw a lot of fancy scientific vocabulary to make it feel sci-fi.

I'm still hoping for the story to unfold soon for me to want to go back to the book every day but I'm far from this feeling right now.
