Narrated by David Dietz this science fiction novel is performed in an clear and emotional form that presents the writers prose well. The story isn’t so far out of reality. This book follows Tony’s previous book in this series Halfskin. Biomites are enhanced cells that when added to humans enhance their abilities. They can give special computer like abilities to a users vision, vocabulary, strength and stamina. Some are given a boost at birth and can continue to receive boosts until they reach 49.9% biotite. Once over the 50% threshold the person is no longer considered human and forgoes all their rights, such as living. The government can kill you as soon as the catch you and it’s not murder, because you are not human. This is the basis for the adventure of this story. What if 49.9% wasn’t enough to keep you alive. What would you do?
Along comes Nixes, black market bio mites not detectable by the Government. So many things going on in this book you have to listen to catch them all. I recommend Clay for a fun listen. I have questions but that is what makes science fiction fun.
