Book Description

Most people are dull and void of any substance. They trudge through life like scenery for the people who actually live it. But that’s not just how they seem; that’s truly what they are—soulless Meat Suits, made by Guardians, with no idea that they’re less. Since the beginning of time, there have always been only 3,137 everlasting human souls in the universe; never one more and never one less. Until now.

Mason Fiske was a simple Suit, playing a role in the backdrop of an Authentic human. Now he’s more. With his newfound ability to heal, he’s being called the new messiah. Throngs gather for his touch, but Mason doesn’t know that every time he heals a Suit, he gives it a soul by ripping away a little part of the Guardian who created it. He’s killing Guardians. If he can’t be stopped, the Guardians will die and the physical world that they maintain for Authentics will be shattered, forcing mankind to ascend from its earthly existence long before it’s ready. This is exactly what the Others want.

C. Allen Brown’s unique debut novella is a rocket-paced glimpse into obsession and desire. Love may heal, but love corrupted leads to very dark deeds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply brilliant! January 22, 2013
By Neil
Science fiction has hopefully changed direction a little with `Continuity' where some people are not really people at all; they are merely `meat suits' that are soulless that have been created by beings called Guardians. Mason Fiske is one of these `suits' and a fairly simple one at that to begin with but soon discovers he is more and has healing powers but by using these powers he is killing the guardians (unknown to him).

The pace that this novel takes is quite staggering and is faster than most, and for that I thank the author C. Allen Brown's. He has made this a book that is very hard to stop reading once you get going and to be honest I found it pacey enough to make me want to go back a page or two to make sure I was getting everything he was telling me. It is also a novel that you will almost certainly return to time and time again.

Just the very idea of other life forms has intrigued me for many years as I do have some belief that it is possible other life forms do actually exist, so not only did the pace of the book grab me but the content too, it fully satisfied my tastes.

I noted an earlier review that this novel may well be used as a basis for a movie and I have to agree. It is certainly different enough to warrant that honor and if that does happen I hope they do it full justice, anything less than a blockbuster would be a travesty.

For a debut novel this guy has an incredibly promising future ahead of him and his next (and hopefully it is not far away) will be eagerly awaited by me.

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting premise August 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
But it ended much too quickly. Espousing upon the origin of species and questioning the reality of God, with some Matrix thrown in, the book promises much more than it delivers, and could be ripe fruit for the start of a series

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting idea with pedestrian execution April 10, 2014
Verified Purchase
The premise of the story was fascinating - only three thousand some people on Earth are legitimate people, the rest are soulless husks. But one of the soulless husks has the ability to make other soulless husks into legitimate people. The characters seemed thinly drawn, there solely for the role they play in the plot. At times it took me a while to figure out why they were there at all.

This is a decent attempt at a first novel. I hope Mr. Brown continues learning the writing craft and tries again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly refreshing! January 20, 2013
Continuity by C.Allen Brown had that added bonus of excitement, curiosity and shocking finally. Seriously, how I came across such a great book, I chuck it off to luck. I really liked how the author broke the revolving stories into chapter. I think that was what kept me so locked into the story. I do have to warn you that so time in the beginning I found myself weeping when Sean finds the two year old in his crib. OMG. I don't want ruin it for you but, poor little boy. Everything about this book was entertaining, it had a strong build up and a solid conclusion. I would definitely add this book to my must read, and re-read again. So I guess what I'm trying to say is that, it was worth my time and I'm pretty sure if your a book lover this book will be worth yours.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh August 21, 2013

Great idea and concept for a story, but it wasn't like anything I expected or hoped for. No character development, so it was tough to relate to anything. Blown opportunity.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Novel Novella February 10, 2013
This is my genre. For an avid sci-fi aficionado this was a great read. I loved the cover art and the entire premise held me captive from blurb to the last line. The story has a few interesting subplots right from the start that really are intriguing.The narrative moves along pretty fast and it is not long before we learn the true nature of this world. The idea that there are only a few real souls and that everyone else is just a "meat suit" designed to be a backdrop for the souls to play off of is great idea. This made me question a lot of things that we think we know about life and being alive.

It is unfortunate that Mason Fiske's power comes at such a high cost to the "guardians". C. Allen Brown's world was unique and peopled with some very interesting characters, but more than that it wakes up the mind to possibilities and that is what a good science fiction book should do. It took me back to the tales of how once people no longer believed in the God's of Mt.Olympus they died.

If you can read one and don't think about how the world you live in could possibly be a part of that linear process then the book was not very good in my opinion. If you like a book that transports you from the mundane to the fantastic then this is a book for you. Continuity, is a love story, wrapped in a science-fiction with a hint of action and adventure. I give it two thumbs up.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dark story without any likeable characters June 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
In any tale you need at least one character to care about, otherwise there's nothing to hold your interest. This short book tries to fill the void left by the lack of any likeable characters with endless foul language delivered by foul people and venomous attacks on anything resembling Christianity.

Now, to be fair, two people do become likeable toward the end but it was too little, too late--for me. Plus, much of the plot felt borrowed from earlier sci-fi such as The Matrix. Even the character of Mother (a male) was done in the 1960's TV show, The Avengers. That show was hopelessly campy but it had likeable, memorable people in it. I doubt I'll remember any of the characters from Continuity tomorrow.

I liked the plot...very 'matrix'.... Left the questions about God unanswered, which would be good for a follow up book.
