"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Miraibanashi the Trilogy is a dystopian look at Japan, through a lens of espionage and revolution. When the Batsu government creates a chasm between the privileged and the poor, a secret society makes it their mission to bring about change. Exposing the corrupt Batsu government for what it truly is could be the beginning of a revolution to make equality a right for every individual. Infiltrating the Gaku complex, the very center of the Batsu government, is just the first step to accomplishing the goal of those in the shadows. As the hero of the novels, Roshike, races against time to avoid detection and complete the mission, can the wishes of the downtrodden be realized?
Evenly paced with an interesting main character, Miraibanashi the Trilogy combines the thrill of espionage with a twist of science fiction. Roshike's abilities and willingness to help all individuals, whether citizens or not, is admirable and speaks well to his character. With the help from some allies, whose interests align with Roshike, the novels have a thread running through them that give the trilogy a cohesive quality. The books are very readable and combine great character development, a well paced story, and thrilling highlights. I would recommend Miraibanashi the Trilogy to those who enjoy spy thrillers with a twist of science fiction.
Blending spy story with science fiction, presenting a future world whose history is nicely hidden, and revealing just enough to satisfy the reader’s immediate curiosity without denying imagination, the Miraibanashi novels plunge readers into high-tech action-adventure right from the start. Think samurai swords plus computers...
Characters’ introspective musings are nicely timed and intriguing in these novels, alternately hiding and revealing details of the plot. There are plenty of thought-provoking situations and ideas, all blending plausibly with unobtrusively spiritual themes. Pleasingly, the trilogy maintains a clear moral compass in spite of its violence and deception. The story offers a powerful combination of the surprising and the inevitable, and is an enjoyably different read.
Disclosure: I read the novels separately and enjoyed them.
