Gayle Conyers life was controlled by others – the recipient of a chip in her brain meant the robotic KATE (Kinetic Advanced Transitional Emissions) was at her beck and call; but Gayle was also under complete surveillance. The majority of the people in Province One where Gayle and her twin daughters, plus housekeeper Sara lived had the chips inserted. The ones who didn’t struggled – no food, no medical, and no jobs.

When Gayle was approached by a specialist scientist to join his team, it wasn’t a

We have been warned for decades, centuries, even and now it is upon us. Our lifestyles and beliefs, our worship of the almighty megabyte and world of science instead of the Almighty Creator are about to scrutinized and the world may be seeing Armageddon in all of its wrathful glory. One woman is about to straddle both worlds as she discovers her life’s work, intended for the betterment of man is about to be used in a twisted and obscene manner that will go against her very core and her very soul ...more

When I first started reading this book I thought O no I don't think it will be fore me but I was WRONG..

Its the year 2050 and Gayle has dedicated her life to following the rules she has a chip implanted that mostly controls everything to eating getting taxis even down to watching a movie, they ask Kate and she provides, there are rebels that will not have the chip and they are outcasts hiding and starving.
One night Michael who can hide for a little while what they say and do breaks into her hous

I was absolutely hooked in the first few pages.

The concept was intensely interesting to me immediately. A belief in a higher power ... not a good one, but one that is the cause of all things bad in, and all suffering of, humankind. The belief that humans needed to become more powerful than this entity and replace it.

"And one way to do that was to merge humankind with technology to eliminate the flaws and create true peace on earth via improved humans"

I am not a fan of dystopian or any type of book that shows a futuristic world. Why? It frightens me. Just the years I have been on this earth myself , I watched this world change from the diplomacy of politics to the way people treat each other. What I enjoyed the most about this story was that even in the year 2050, there was still that one person who stood up for what she felt was right. Great book.

Imagine a future where you are always connected and there is no need for TV or printed books or even the internet as we know it--the chip inside you knows everything, keeps track of your finances and even orders taxis for you. It knows when you need to order groceries, it knows when you are unwell. It knows *everything*--except what you're thinking. This is the world scientist Gayle Conyers lives in with her two daughters and nanny/home help. In this world, those who are chipped are privileged. ...more

Gayle Conyers lives in a world where a chip is inserted into everyone’s brain shortly after birth. Every aspect of Gayle and everyone who has this chip; which is called KATE an acronym for Kinetic Advanced Transitional Emissions is monitored by the Order of World Society.

Gayle is the mother of twin girls who at least has control over where she works although not everyone does there are people in lower sectors work where they are ordered. But when Gayle is approached by another scientist to come

While this was a different type of read for me, I can say I found it deep and intriguing. It looked at a controversial subject that has been around for quite some time. Gayle found herself given a choice to decide between right and wrong. I thought a good job was done showcasing the different views & their causes. The setting and characters were well defined. The storyline started off mild, gradually building allowing me to become familiar with the time period. The content was inline with the ti ...more

'Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.’

This book has the makings of a good story. It has clearly defined sides, massive stakes, plenty of sci-fi elements, and a protagonist being manipulated by a sinister organization. Unfortunately, while there is a good story to be found here, the story that is told is not it.
The problems are many. Most of the characters are completely one dimensional. Gayle, the main character is more developed but still does not have a real arc. I would have liked to see her struggle with her decisions more than

Very Disappointing SciFi(?) with no ending ...

This story seems to be a Religion novel disguised as Science Fiction. Then, it just ends ... weird, and not necessarily good and definitely NOT recommended (either as a writing style OR as a book to read). It seems like 50% of the text were Bible quotes, being forced onto the reader. If that is what interests you, though -- dig in!

I admire the author's determination to write - he has written several books and perhaps I read the wrong one, but it is really awful. It's about, obviously, the end of the world. I have read many dystopian books with the same theme and generally enjoyed them. Unfortunately this book is poorly written and is clearly a religious tract which could only appeal to so called Born Agains. If you do not fall into that category, give this book a pass. ...more

I’m hooked! I am still on the edge of my seat after reading this hit. This book is very thought provoking and entertaining. I have so many questions reeling through my mind (in a good way), and I am so ready for the second installment so I can continue this journey!

Dr. Gayle Conyers (f, Scientist, PhD, biologist/geneticist) expertise is on genetic management.
From 2026-2036, Nanotechnology vastly progressed.
6/7/2049, Advanced Transitional Emissions (KATE) was the newest technology.

2050, The Order of World Society now controls everything & everyone. The Peace for All Agenda is not what it is cracked up to be.
2050, Dr. Conyers had developed a antidote for HIVm.
Later, Dr. Karl Lee Armstrong found a cure for Alzheimer’s & spinal cord injuries.

This is an interesting and awesome read for several reasons. The first is it’s basically a “What’s the worst that could happen” book that touches on the fears many have over the potential future of mankind. In short, it’s a typical dystopian story, but, more than that, it’s a perfect dystopian tale. By that, I mean it’s a page turning story with enough elements to makes us scoff or buy into what’s happening to the world.

And that’s the best quality to have in any book. We’re taken on a journey th

I have to admit at the outset, I adore spiritual good v science v evil stories. I enjoy the toing and froing from belief to disbelief and back, as the lead character struggles with their morals, ethics, childhood indoctrination, and final comprehension of the truth/Truth.

In this book, Nesly Clerge has provided the reader with a very 'adult' version of this age-old question. The characters are believable. The main character in particular, Gayle, is a strong female, mother, and a scientist. Brains

A futuristic tale of science versus religion. Set in 2050 Gayle is a geneticist relating to disease management. She is enticed and then forced to work for Karl whose sole aim is immortality. He is already part way there having success fully transplanted the head of a “useful/clever” person onto the body of a “volunteer”- possibly a death row prisoner. This is a very clever, slightly technical read with a hint of religion that has a very good argument. You don’t need to be religious to read this- ...more

I always enjoy a sci-fi story although I do prefer a happy or satisfactory conclusion to the book. This futuristic novel gives the reader plenty of scenarios to encourage pondering our future here and may not be suitable for all readers. A strong female character, the scientist Gayle Conyers, was believable and made the story realistic. I can't say I enjoyed this book but that is because I prefer a happier tale. If you like end of world stories with a strong dose of biblical prophecy thrown in y ...more

Not what I was expecting...

Update: I finished the book. Not quite sure how I like it. I don't think I liked it. It was extremely over religious to the point of being over zealous as well. I didn't really get a good story from this book. It honestly felt like being pounded upside the head with Bible talk with a mild story thrown in to make it qualify as a book.....The ending seems like there will be a Part 2.

Interesting cliffhanger

As with his other works I am waiting for the completion of the series. I hate cliffhangers, but the author does get you involved.
