The Singularity. It is the era of the posthuman. Artificial intelligences have surpassed the limits of human intellect. Biotechnological beings have rendered people all but extinct. Molecular nanotechnology runs rampant, replicating and reprogramming at will. Contact with extraterrestrial life grows more imminent with each new day.

Struggling to survive and thrive in this accelerated world are three generations of the Macx clan: Manfred, an entrepreneur dealing in intelligence amplification technology whose mind is divided between his physical environment and the Internet; his daughter, Amber, on the run from her domineering mother, seeking her fortune in the outer system as an indentured astronaut; and Sirhan, Amber’s son, who finds his destiny linked to the fate of all of humanity.

For something is systematically dismantling the nine planets of the solar system. Something beyond human comprehension. Something that has no use for biological life in any form...



Baker & Taylor
Desperately trying to cope with the unchecked technological innovations that have rendered humankind nearly obsolete, the members of the Macz family are suddenly confronted by an unknown enemy that is systematically dismantling the planets of the solar system in an effort to annihilate all biological lifeforms. By the author of Singularity Sky.

Pretentious techie babble pretending to be a novel. I can see why it took five years to finish, there must have been tons of reject slips and several editors.

This book is by far the best piece of sci-fi i've ever laid my hands on. hardcore sci-fi that takes you into wild distances in the very far future by one of the greatest masterminds of our generation.
