As a student studying engineering and political science, I have to agree with other reviewers who state that this book isn’t the simple political fiction. I don’t even know what its category would be! The author does a wonderful job pulling from the crazy world of politics and the technical aspects of engineering to create Taylor, Gerald, Freddy, Sadi, and everyone else’s world. Their world is full of suspense and calculated risks and the readers feel it alongside with the characters.
I absolutely cannot wait to read the books that follow Silent Subversion I.
When Taylor realizes her invention will put her in the government’s crosshairs, she must learn to trust a team put together by an old friend–a team that will help her develop her brainchild to its full potential. The co-conspirators soon find themselves not only having to stay one step ahead of hostile government agencies, but having to come to terms with a strange new world.
While I generally prefer more reality-based contemporary fiction (plots still possible, though on a lower probability scale), it was a bit of a shock to find myself thrust from a contemporary storyline into sci-fi/fantasy. Still, the story kept me engaged on several levels.
On the plus side: the author tells a good story, creates interesting characters (Freddy’s my personal favorite), and weaves political commentary without a lecturing voice.
The downsides: overly lengthy fantasy passages (nothing that can’t be scrupulously edited without diminishing the story), somewhat awkward chaptering methods and, if you're impatient like me, having to wait for the conclusion in the final book of the series. But, it should prove worth the wait.
But overall, the plusses override the negatives in this debut effort by a freedom-loving, imaginative author.
Silent Subversion encourages the reader to look behind the curtain and see what the wizard is really up to through social commentary and religious allegory.
I would recommend this book for a more mature audience.
This story builds to one of the underlying issues related to the subject (and characters in the book) of pedophilia and that horrendous global situation. This is an important subject that gets little acknowledgement in the press and is so wide spread that it should give people chills.
For me, SSI offered a crisp fictional story with its foundations in reality, and some of that reality is not paid attention to by many. In this, the author does a good job highlighting these issues and those types involved.
I’ve not started the latest book, SSX, however, based on the first book and where it leaves off, I look forward to reading further along in the lives of these characters and where the author may go with the story.
