Book Description

They murdered his wife and son. They burned down his house. They beat him within an inch of his life. And then they realized they had the wrong man.

They should have killed him when they had the chance.


Will Stark is a self-made multi-billionaire, happily married and a proud father. He arrives home to find his house destroyed and his family murdered, and is himself rescued from certain death by a mysterious trio.

His rescuers are part of a splinter faction of a centuries-old secret society that has developed incredible technological advances, and unlocked the method to release humanity's innate potential, and skills long thought the realm of magic. Will was mistakenly believed to be a key dissident and fugitive, on the run from the primary group, known as the Aliomenti.

Society believes him dead, and Will elects to work from the shadows to learn the secrets of the Aliomenti, secrets that can help him seek his own form of vengeance.

Or, perhaps, become the man they'd sought all along.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs serious editing April 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've so far read the first two books in this series.
I like the ideas behind it.
However, the books both need serious editing. The author says the same thing over and over and the dialogue is atrocious. The characters need a lot of work and the plot and the way the character act are not consistent or believable at all.

As I said, I liked the ideas behind these books and am debating getting the third book to see what happens but the need for editing dramatically takes away from my enjoyment of this series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not terrible October 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So no one likes writing bad reviews so I am going to say this at the front this review will be spoiler free as the author on his website asks that people not spoil the book for others. I read the sample and really was not feeling the book but the synopsis kept pulling me back I like the whole revenge thing so I gave into my impulse and bought it.

Good
: The synopsis was great and did make me want to read.
: Editing was well done with few spelling mistakes. Not my strong point in seeing these tho.

Bad
: Flat characters none of them really made me laugh or even interested me that much. You never get a sense of them even when you are in there heads they just seem very one dimensional.
: The morality that the good guys profess to carry on seemed very disconnected with their reality. If someone is causing the death/misery to others and you do not stop them then you are as guilty as them especially if you are able to. In addition I just feel that given the pain some of them went through they would of at least wanted to prevent it from happening to others.
: The manipulation in this story are gigantic huge ones, I am never of fan of having things like that as it makes your main character seem pathetic and stupid. In addition the sheer amount of misery these manipulations caused supposedly for the better were on a par with what the bad guys were doing.
: The main plot device is very hard to get done right. And in this book you are left with a lot of plot holes and what ifs.
: First part of the book as way to many view points and drags on to long I get why this was done but it was unnecessary for this book.
: The money part was an aside that I felt could of been edited out as I did not feel it added to the story proper much at all.

the idea behind it was not bad but is was poorly executed.

The author says the same thing over and over and the dialogue is horrible.
The characters need a lot of work and the plot and the way the character act are not consistent or believable at all.

I was not able to end the book and I will not buy for sure the second book

1.0 out of 5 stars SNORE!!! March 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Completely stinks. About 75% of the entire book is all about the incident with Will his wife and child being attacked for no good reason. Takes forever for Will to learn his powers and then you don't even know how he learns it. Not worth investing time into.

I like the premis, it's a new twist on sci-fi standard fare. The book seemed a bit too disjointed until near the end where it all started to make sense, but i believe it was a bit too mysterious and unexplained in leading up to the 'Aha' moment...many want a bit more clarity, even in their mystery...I did enjoy the book, i would recommend it provided you stick it out...it comes together, trust me.
Looking forward to book 2.

Humans vs Evolved humans who no longer think of themselves as humans in their supremecy in controlling "energy" what seems to be magic to regular humans. There is a split in the Evolved Humans on sharing with regular humans or keeping it among themselves. If I say more I'll give it all away. The main character is Will, and his experiences in all this magical drama on Earth. The premise let me finish book 1, but past that there isn't anything else I really want to know. I felt no desire to continue reading about their experiences, drama and infighting. I gave it 3 stars because I wasn't distracted by editing issues.

1.0 out of 5 stars moronic December 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Characters I cannot empathize with making decisions that don't make sense with an inadequate understanding of technology. This book sounded interesting with many 5 stars ratings but turned out to be childish and with poor internal consistency. Look elsewhere for a book worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful. Heartful New School Science Fiction... December 24, 2012
By Darion
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With A Question of Will I finally got the kind of science fiction that I enjoy most. The story is thoughtful, introducing concepts which are all rooted within the semblance of plausibility. Nanotechnology was featured bigtime, and other cool tech I could geek off of because I cld actually imagine I night actually HAVE this tech if I'm lucky enough and I live a long enough lifetime. I call it the "New School" of science fiction. But then the characters move beyond the concepts to confront the moral and ethical issues, that actually matter in their lives. Therefore the tech remains subservient to the characters and the story, which was compelling to me as I read it. Job well done, I've already bought the prequel and the sequel to this one.

Story was very complex but was intriguing at the same time. The characters seem to become more fictionalized as the plot thickens.

I'm sure many would really enjoy this book but for me it was too violent, with too much course language and a bit too weird.
