Fire, splitting the atom, synthetic biology. There's a dark side to every invention, one which we have been fortunate to contain for most of history. But are we hurtling into the future too fast? Is our unstoppable train of innovation about to run into a powderkeg of explosive potential?
Detonation is an immersive, action-packed narrative that is a cautionary reflection on our own innovation-obsessed culture. It follows two societies that are connected, but centuries apart, and their struggle against a superintelligent machine. Amid ideological clashes and political plotting, a diverse cast discovers this insidious threat, one which few can fathom, and fewer can challenge, and they are forced into an escalating conflict against a tireless enemy.
Detonation is the recipient of a "starred review" from Kirkus Reviews. On average, Kirkus’ editors award the Kirkus Star to 10 percent of all the books they assign for review.
