The debut novel from a exciting new voice in SF-about what happens after ninety percent of humanity leaves Earth   There is an artificial ring around the Earth and it is empty after the Singularity. Either all the millions of inhabitants are dead, or they have been transformed into energy beings beyond human perception. Earth's population was reduced by ninety percent. Human civilization on Earth is now recovering from this trauma and even has a vigorous space program.   Apollo Papadopulos is in training to become the captain of the starship Consensus . Apollo is a unique individual in that he/she/it is not an individual at all, but five separate teenagers who form a new entity. Strom, Meda, Quant, Manuel, and Moira are a pod, as these kinds of personalities are called, genetically engineered to work as one and to be able to communicate non-verbally. As a rare quintet, much relies on the successful training of Apollo, but as more accidents occur, the pod members struggle just to survive.

I'm not usually a fan of first person narrative, but Paul Melko has done something entirely different using this type of writing style. And I loved it. Hoping to see more in this series! An exellent read.

The author has taken a good short story and added material to make a good novel. Locations such as the Amazon jungle and Saharan Africa are described with great attention to detail. I look forward to more work from this author with the hope that they will get even better.
