Titus Remington is the spoiled oldest son of a corporation CEO, who is thrust into the top role when his father is found guilty of corporate treason and executed. Titus quickly learns that all is not straight up honest and he must choose whether to accept the status quo or to question it and work to expose the truth. He finds that his brother, his friends and their enemies all have good and bad traits, as they risk their lives through many encounters that test their wit and determination, achieving successes and setbacks. Can they survive to find justice?
This is well-written, with deeply developed characters and vivid scenery that pulls the reader in as part of the fast-paced action. It is an easy read that is hard to put down. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading more, hopefully a sequel to this story.
Joseph John builds a compelling future America, ravaged environmentally and socially by profit-driven monopolistic corporations. He does not try to get too distracted by details, keeping the plot tight and moving. The conclusion satisfies, but the characters and the expansive world shaped by vulture capitalism merit a sequel.
The characters were well fleshed out and became real people, with all the virtues, vices, and flaws of human beings. I'm hoping for a sequel to this book, as I really want to find out what happens to them next. I'm especially interested to hear more about Liviana, our badass female heroine.
The only thing I did not enjoy about this book, and this is more of a personal reading preference, was a long scene of video game play that was described in great detail near the beginning

Joseph John delivers. He gives us a look at the Earth as it could well be, 700 – 800 years from now. Eight corporations rule the planet from their separate “Arks”. Most of the planet is a lifeless ruin. The Council of Eight is made up of one CEO from each “Ark” The elite have unimaginable luxury, and are cloned at death so they can continue their lifestyle. For those in the base layers of each ”Ark”, it is one big company town. Citizens are owned by their corporation, and their destiny is to be worked to death to maintain the profit. Conspiracies and betrayals and the almost casual brutality of a police state and fight scenes that are nothing short of intense. And then, it really starts to pick up steam.
Yes, a following novel will pick up where this one takes a major change in direction. It will be worth the wait.
Titus Remington, profligate, irreverent and entitled, suddenly finds himself thrust into a position of authority as he's expected to take up the mantle of his disgraced father.
This was such an enjoyable, engrossing and sleep-depriving book, deftly written and impeccably edited.
Titus was easy to connect to, his wry humour lightening what might have otherwise been a too sombre read. All the characters were well developed, believable and interesting. The world building well handled and the multitude of twists and turns ensured this was a completely compelling read.
This was another e-ARC I received and upon turning the final page went author-stalking on Amazon and promptly purchased my own copy - it's a definite for the re-read pile!
