The Rise of Ares
Born into a world where long life and any dream can be a command, Ares doesn't have any of it. The solar system has become stagnant and corrupt in the post-technological revolution. As he tries to even the odds against the Rachten-those wealthy enough to afford genetic manipulation-Ares becomes mired in debt.
But there is nowhere to hide in a universe where everything, and everyone, is an eye.
Still, he tries to escape the Bank; which always gets its dues. His flight takes him on a journey across a solar system on the verge of change, plagued by dissonance (despite the shiny veneer of the inner system), technological and engineering marvels, and strange rumors from the Oort. Ares quickly becomes entangled with something hidden from the world: an impossible AI.
However, he soon discovers there is more to events in his life than he ever realized. That realization, that he is a pawn in a game he can't even fathom, sends him spiraling down a slow, dark, madness.
"A fresh, thought provoking, yet terrifyingly believable future. The universe Serge creates is both a backdrop for the roller coaster storyline, and an eye opening commentary on humanity: not only of our struggle with existence, but with our technology, forms of economy and governance, and even equality. It's what you'd imagine if H.G.Wells, Isaac Asimov, and Ayn Rand were alive today and collaborated."
