The Singularity: Heretic - David Beers
Heretic is the first novel in the Singularity Series. This book is free for the kindle. Ceasar Wells is as successful as anyone is allowed to be under the Singularity, but Ceasar isn't happy. Ceasar is too smart to be satisfied with life under the Singularity, and that will prove to be fatal. That will turn Ceasar into a heretic. This book is amazing. It's reminiscent of several science fiction themes. The Matrix, Soylent Green, and The Terminator come to mind. The recent wave of red flags about artificial intelligence sets the stage for this book. This story makes me think of Herbert's Dune in its scope and style. Very highly recommended.
