Description

START HERE. ✴ ✴ ✴ ✴ ✴ In a galaxy where popular opinion is instant law, someone unpopular is about to change everything. ✴ ✴ ✴ ✴ ✴ Trillions of minds are knitted together in the internet-like Megacosm. The "best" bioengineered people lead galactic civilization, whereas anyone who isn't in the Megacosm is a disposable slave. But those brilliant, perfect leaders have failed to predict a threat to their slave-fueled utopia. Thomas is the rejected child of a galactic leader. Raised on the primitive backwater planet Earth, he's physically disabled, in foster care, and ignorant of his heritage. His sole advantages are his rare mnemonic mutation ... and astronomical ambitions. When the Megacosm crashes into his life, Thomas seizes a chance to thrive. But he isn't going to claw his way to the top echelons while his friends suffer in an alien slave ghetto. Thomas clings to the shreds of his shattered privacy, and although he dares not think subversive thoughts--not with a constant inner audience ready to upvote him or sentence him to death--he does begin to arm himself with minor secrets. One of his enslaved friends from Earth has illegal bioengineered superpowers, which are being chemically suppressed even as he battles monsters in a gladiatorial arena for the amusement of the masses. If Thomas can rescue his gladiator friend--and if he can think of a way for them both to escape the all-knowing, all-seeing galactic civilization--then they might be the first to succeed where all other slave rebellions have failed. ✴ Winner of the 2017 Ooorah Awards. ✴ First book of an ongoing series. ✴ Exclusive to Wattpad.
