I loved Robopocalypse, so I am eager to try another futuristic novel by Daniel H Wilson.
Technology makes them superhuman. But mere mortals want them kept in their place. The New York Times bestselling author of Robopocalypse
creates a stunning, near-future world where technology and humanity
clash in surprising ways. The result? The perfect summer blockbuster.
As he did in Robopocalypse, Daniel Wilson masterfully envisions a frightening near-future world. In Amped,
people are implanted with a device that makes them capable of
superhuman feats. The powerful technology has profound consequences for
society, and soon a set of laws is passed that restricts the
abilities—and rights—of "amplified" humans. On the day that the Supreme
Court passes the first of these laws, twenty-nine-year-old Owen Gray
joins the ranks of a new persecuted underclass known as "amps." Owen is
forced to go on the run, desperate to reach an outpost in Oklahoma
where, it is rumored, a group of the most enhanced amps may be about to
change the world—or destroy it.
Once again, Daniel H. Wilson's
background as a scientist serves him well in this technologically savvy
thriller that delivers first-rate entertainment, as Wilson takes the
"what if" question in entirely unexpected directions. Fans of Robopocalypse are sure to be delighted, and legions of new fans will want to get "amped" this summer.
