Denial, the first volume of Toby Weston's Singularity's Children series, delivers a razor-sharp view of Earth's future, a tomorrow-land as disturbing as it is utterly plausible.
Subtle details, large cliffhangers, and a desire to see resolution with these strong characters makes flipping to the next book an easy choice.

Toby Weston posits a seemingly more traditional world view, but with quite a number of twists. It's not quite our world, not quite our time. It starts in the not-too distant future, with some well-detailed technology, and a whole host of fascinating ideas. This doesn't detract from the characters, who are well developed and usually sympathetic.
I look forward to the sequel(s) with great interest.
Toby creates an immersive believable future, and although familiar in a few respects to ground covered by fore mentioned authors this book stands stands shoulder to shoulder with any of the novels they have written IMHO.
I'm looking forward to the next book, carry on Toby you're doing great work!
So, I decided to re-read it. On doing so I was surprised as I felt like I was reading a different book, a unique and fascinating observation on the state and direction of our society woven into a fresh and stimulating story. I feel like there are direct parallels to now and to when the story is set just in the few years it has been since I first picked up this novel.
The story has a human feel and natural flow to it, the characters are likeable (and recognisable) in their own way. Future-tech is seamlessly integrated in the story as if it’s no less believable than a mobile phone is today, communicating with Dolphins is yesterdays news and AI is an inevitability. I could easily see this made into a film or TV series.
The way the individual’s stories evolve and guessing how they will eventually intertwine is very well written and kept me turning the pages. I especially appreciate the fact that the characters are not the usual perfect specimens of humankind for a change, the type you could easily walk past them in the street without a second glance or maybe to avoid! (apart from Niato?).
It`s a story of us now and in the near future.
The technology of tomorrow permeates the book, along with one of the important struggles of our time - the recognition of non-human consciousness and rights.
These threads are woven nicely around a plot involving sympathetic characters and the whole story moves at a steady pace - very enjoyable!
I'm looking forward to more in the series!
