Socket Greeny is just another boy until a hectic situation coincides with his time to "awaken". At this point, things begin to escalate, all the way until the very last paragraph. It's impossibly hard to do that, still have escalation in the plot during your wrap-up, but it is managed here.
This book brings a lot of ethereal and deep thoughts of humanity, purpose for existence, and battle for what one believes is right, even if it may not be so. There are a multitude of characters that are introduced at perfect times, never too cluttered but enough to keep you deeply interested on what is to happen next.
This book is a must-have. Is a true diamond hiding in the rough, and is what many authors should strive to achieve.
There will be a few spelling errors, most of them appearing in the second and third novel, but absolutely nothing that breaks concentration or fluidity.
The ending was a bit unsatisfying - almost as if nothing was really lost at all (the digital copies of his friends were miraculously saved for almost 2000 years so they were reunited...okay....). I'd have preferred if the series ended with his death, but the epilogue wasn't that bad.
I was most surprised that there wasn't any attempt at a parallel between Broak and Socket in the third section of the series - after the "big reveal" would have been a perfect time to reflect back on that character, who was also "produced" for a purpose. Oh well, this being missing from the book didn't detract too much from my enjoyment!
Despite still being in school, Socket Greeny, finds the world changing when he starts to develop abilities beyond those of around him. To find answers he has to take a trip to a mountain retreat where he finds he is not alone.
However, for me it's the combination of the main character and his support network that make this series so fascinating.
There is a clear development in the relationships between Socket and Streeter, a young man with programming skills way beyond the average. But it's Socket's relationship with Chute that makes the series shine. Can she be what Socket needs her to be, or will the changes he's undergoing destroy their friendship?
The fact is, this is some of the best writing you're going to run into in indie publishing.
What the writer does is present a story written simply enough (deceptively so) to engage you, and with a plot complicated enough to make your mind ponder things of great and imaginative magnitude. Like examining what is human. What is good. What is evil.
The characters are multidimensional and interesting. The plot progresses both logically yet surprisingly through the trilogy. Curves are thrown at you, and you say "Never saw that coming, but yeah, that makes absolute sense".
This is so difficult to pull off, and Bertauski does it so well, it SEEMS effortless.
I guarantee you a few sleepless nights. And well worth it!

Felt a bit guilty. For the diversion, but it was healing.
