In a dark new age, technologically advanced humans have crossed vast stretches of space-yet have remained brutally, imperfectly human.

In the star system ThreeSys, three members of the elite human "Meshed" caste have used their great gifts for evil purposes -- enslaving the lower orders in the addictive dreams of a powerful narcotic. Now hunted by those seeking bloody retribution, Corey, Annmarie, and Eve-along with Eve's lower caste lover, Naverdi -- must flee to Paradise, the first world in ThreeSys to know the curse of human habitation. But something is waiting for them on the now abandoned planet -- a sinister being that can turn their own powers against them, an entity that has broken down all barriers between virtual and real; a creature that has chosen Naverdi to bear its offspring into the world.

Review: The Annunciate

User Review  - Jodi - Goodreads

This is an odd book. It feels like you've joined the story half-way through and it took me a bit to get into it at all. Still, its interesting and well written. Certainly worth a read. Read full review
