Publisher's Summary

Desperate to prove that he has found the unified field theory in the Bible, young mathematics prodigy Jacob Saylor runs away to the Middle East. But when he and his brother venture into the desert they disappear, only to return years later with no memory of where they have been. Jacob's fragmented mind descends into madness and nearly a decade passes before he can find a way to hold onto his sanity. Daily life becomes a struggle and he makes ends meet by working and sleeping in his father's old garage.
Then a group of cybernetic terrorists calling themselves The Embodied attack. Having discarded their humanity for bodies of living technology they serve their masters by secretly manipulating world events, eliminating enemies, and toppling nations. Explosions claim thousands of lives across the country and Jacob watches in horror as his family is lost. But then he sees that his 11-year-old niece has survived - and something inside of him snaps. She's trying to crawl from the wreckage on broken limbs, and he knows that he's the only one who can save her.
What he does next changes the world as he manipulates the very fabric of reality.
Now The Embodied are seeking him and he will have to overcome the horrors of his past if he is to fight for our survival. But the most terrifying demons he must face are his own, and redemption will mean returning to the source of his torment. Time is running out and the only way forward is for him to face the consequences of tampering in God's domain.
Now the world needs this shattered soul to find a way through his pain to fight for humanity. Can he become what we so desperately need...one last and final hero?

.Sheer, pure brilliance to nourish your mind

Cybernetics,religion,Unbelievable tech,Physics and so so much more this was like a concerto with the music unheard ut acted out by the characters in this book.I could liken a lot of aspects of this book for example Avatar and Battlestar Galactica and Dr Strange but none really sum it up and its hard to capture its essence but it was masterful,intricate,imaginative beyond belief.A complex piece of literature that knows no bounds and I am eagerly awaiting book two in this trilogy!Brilliance. Sheer, pure brilliance. This is what this book is. Everything I wanted and everything I didn't know I wanted. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.As always this is my honest opinion .Judy Rouda was excellent and breathed life i to this outstanding body of work.

Groundbreaking Story

OK found an amazing new author for a gritty precise and compelling hard sci fi story.
In a world gone mad with runaway cybernetic and biotech monsters the human spirit has given up on old religion's with these new horrors present.
Faris creates such a masterful weave of realism i was frankly quite taken with the levels of detail. With so many authors out there with varying degrees of skill i was amazed i hadn't heard of him ,but was gratefully surprised with this story.
My biggest complaint is how long the story is and how the level of details creates a small amount of confusion which means a fair bit of concentration required with it being audio and hard to flick back for further enlightenment and clarification like you would with a book.
The narrator is female and I usually prefer a male narrator but Judy did a great job with the characters and again i was very pleased.
In stars 5/5 across the board but i would give easily 95/100.
As a owner of a vast library of books and an increasing audio collections it's hard for particular stories to stick out but i believe this one will always stick out.
Better yet there isn't a wait for more in the series, so im away to buy the series as this gushing of praise is very rare and making me self conscious lol.
This audio was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review and as such is my own honest opinion of which im glad i did as i struck gold.
