The year is 2063 and Big Brother has control; 40 years previously Officium took over global intelligence, government, supply and policing. In the wake of viral disaster they offered to return the world to order, but at a cost.
New York journalist Seraph Maddon has been trying to link the death of her British parents to the group that has rinsed the world of all hope - but more than ten years of investigations have turned up nothing. It is only when she leaves her job behind to travel to England for a funeral that she starts to unpick her family’s involvement in a movement known as UNITY.
Someone intends Seraph to cross paths with Dr Ryken Hardy and when they meet, it is not long before they are running for their lives - their combination a significant threat to those who believe themselves beyond surveillance.
Seraph’s rollercoaster journey of reawakening and newfound love is a battle to finally break free of the shackles of oppression. Secrets and lies are the norm amongst a frightened population and the truth may be best kept hidden.
But someone is determined… the truth will out, for better or worse…
The story continues in UNITY Vol.2, THE INFORMANT
All we know is that we were born into corruption and madness and that nothing can move forward until the veil is lifted. Knowledge is freedom, and if the world knew the truth for a certainty, I’m sure people would rise up against Officium finally. But without definitive proof, we can do nothing. We need hard evidence otherwise anything else might send panic through the population again. I know one thing for sure at least, they will stop at nothing to keep the truth hidden...
This book... I need a moment to think. There was so much going on here. Not in a bad way even ... but holy crap balls.
The main character, Seraph, is awesome. Even with all this crap thrown at her, she doesn't let it control her. I could take some lessons from this woman!
When the guy (not sure if saying his name is a spoiler, so I'm leaving it out) first showed up, I wasn't sure about how I felt about him. I didn't want to read a story with some romance that changes the story from awesome action to sex all the time. It was done quite well.
Then there was Camille - she's not what I was expecting either. I think this book was the most times I was thrown off by an author.
When it got to the end, I may have screamed some obscenities out loud. Multiple times. I look forward to seeing what happens in The Informant.
