*Introducing a New Author to the Blog*
I was taken by the monochromatic nature of the cover first, and then the description seemed just a bit different from my normal selections. So today, we have a shortish novel by the American Science Fiction Writer, ST Rogers:
It’s the future. A new serum has been invented that significantly slows the aging process. Humans who get the serum injections before the age of 24 can expect to live 500 years if not forever. But the possibility of eternal life has changed the world perspective on God and the importance of religion. In reaction to this trend, an anti- technology, religious faction called Human 1.0 has formed in the South. Members of Human 1.0 are banned from society because they refuse to get the serum injections, believing it against God’s Will.
Meanwhile, Sara Brunson, a scientist predating the valuable injections, hopes to leave a mark on the world in her remaining years. She works day and night in the lab to create a robot with human emotions and free will. She succeeds with Fisher, an emotional, philosophical robot with blinding intelligence. Fisher struggles with his synthetic humanity and voices the desire to create, to invent, to build more robots like himself. Sara allows Fisher to build, but where should she draw the line? Could Fisher build something dangerous? How much freedom is too much? Fisher’s creations spiral out of control in this epic tale of religion, technology and the lust for power. Could this be the End of Times?

On Amazon today my rating is (<) 3,528. I suppose that I'm still heading in the right direction, but very slowly now. I would love to get to the top 1,000 Reviewers' some day ....... so if you find the Daily Kindle Downloads info useful please go over to my Reviews on Amazon and leave me some positive feedback on some of my reviews (which helps my rating, and will earn you my grateful thanks).
