The story begins with Cain arriving at his new post on one of the giant farm operations set up in Africa after taking the land from the indigenous people. On his way to the farm, Cain barely survives an explosion, which he’s told is the work of the “Cannibals” or “terrorists,” the natives.
Shortly afterwards, the chief is found dead of an apparent suicide, and one of the farmers is found killed. The hunt is on, then, for Cain to find out what’s really behind these events. And he has many suspects.
There are, of course, many parallels to current-day situations, including the legacy of colonialism, and the use of war as the ultimate propaganda tool. When certain parties want to make sure the drone warfare program is reinstated by the government, they know the easiest way to convince people is to scare them.Read more ›
Farm Colony 984 was overrun by the Cannibals and it was reported there were no survivors. Imagine the surprise in the head quarters when they found out there were 3 men alive! And, one of them was Cain..
It is amazing what corporate greed can do to honest men. Lots of lies leading up to this ending - and the ending is fitting considering the circumstances. I do feel empathy for Abraham's loss when the promise made to him was never fulfilled.
Cain is an interesting character, and the situations he's put into are fascinating and interesting. I found myself engrossed in the story and the writing was excellent.
The character descriptions and point of view are presented particularly well, with protagonist we are rooting for and antagonist, well sometimes we might be rooting for them too. The author uses a mix of biblical references, present day controversies and popular sci-fi themes to thicken the plot, advance the characters and keep the pages turning.
This being Eric James-Olson's first publised work there is no telling where he'll go from here. A prequel is slated to be released sometime next year and the door is left open for an ongoinig series. This reader will be checking back to see what comes next!
