After the first chapter, I was so fascinated by the story that I forgave the present tense and pushed on through, because I simply HAD to know what happened. And I gotta say...the ending? darn you! When the heck is the next book coming out??? How could you leave me like that? ;-)
I found this whole world fascinating. It's dystopian but not as you'd normally picture it. Sure, humans are downtrodden and under the boot of the, well, machines for want of a better word. The Ascended ones, but I still see them as machines. But where Hunger Games has kids killing each other, this has them competing in the Olympics but instead of sports or athletics, it's music, writing, poetry, and art. Gotta admit, I LOVE that idea. How cool is that? Sure they're competing for the chance to Ascend, but underneath that is the idea that creativity and Art is what was lost when humans moved forward in their evolution. And that it's the one thing they wish they could get back. And our boy here might just be the key.
Running through all this is a current/theme of what, exactly, is a soul...and was it also lost when humans moved forward. Religion, faith, that spark that makes you "you"...all of it is at the core of this story. Those looking for a fun way to make their teen think will really like this.
I also enjoyed that it was a male POV protagonist. And that's an artist. I just want to hug him and celebrate that...Art is just not valued as much as it should be these days and it's nice to see it celebrated here.
So if you like sci fi/futuristic/dystopian/figuring out who you are and coming of age/adventure...check this one out. No real romance in it to make the boys feel icky, no real blood to make the parents feel icky, no swearing that I noticed. And possibly a great conversation starter on the subject of faith and creativity and finding your place.
And if you don't like first person present tense...grit your teeth and bear it ;-)
My only concern as I neared the end of the book was that there would be too many questions left unanswered to feels complete story arc. I think Quinn just cleared the line on that. It definely leaves you needing to read book 2!
In THE LEGACY HUMA Singularity 1, by Author Susan Kaye Quinn, we meet seventeen-year-old Elijah (Eli) Brighton, a legacy human, who wants to become an ascender, which means they’re no longer human. They have so much going for them, being beautiful one of their advantages.
Eli is a talented artist, who sometimes has spells where his work is exceptional, but he doesn’t remember painting them. He also has another problem. His mother needs medicine, which is expensive so he has to paint to help pay for her needs. I like the fact that he’s such a caring son.
Susan Kaye Quinn has created an interesting world with characters trying to survive. Does Eli achieve his goal of becoming an ascender? Or does he discover that being an ascender is nothing like he though?
THE LEGACY HUMAN Singularity Book 1 is a good story about discovering what truly is important in life. I enjoyed meeting the characters and really hoped Eli would find what he was looking for.
