A BETTER WORLD, the followup to the excellent BRILLIANCE, by Marcus Sakey, is already one of my favorite books of 2014 so far, and on of the unique things about it is the sign text sprinkled throughout the book that gives insight about the state of Sakey’s alternate US. An example of one of these, complete with graphics, is below, and we’re also giving away a copy of A BETTER WORLD to one lucky winner, so be sure to check out the giveaway details below the post (US only)!
Since 1980, 1% of the world has been born with gifts we’d only dreamed of. The ability to sense a person’s most intimate secrets, or predict the stock market, or move virtually unseen. For thirty years the world has struggled with a growing divide between the exceptional…and the rest of us.
Now a terrorist network led by brilliants has crippled three cities. Supermarket shelves stand empty. 911 calls go unanswered. Fanatics are burning people alive.
Nick Cooper has always fought to make the world better for his children. As both a brilliant and an advisor to the president of the United States, he’s against everything the terrorists represent. But as America slides toward a devastating civil war, Cooper is forced to play a game he dares not lose—because his opponents have their own vision of a better world.
And to reach it, they’re willing to burn this one down.
From Marcus Sakey, “the master of the mindful page turner” (Gillian Flynn) and “one of our best storytellers” (Michael Connelly), Book Two of the Brilliance Saga is a relentless thrill ride that will change the way you look at your world—and the people around you.
