Loved it! 😍

Dive into the future unknown with diabolical schemes of taking over the world using technological advancements beyond our imagination.

We have explored our galaxy and still have so much left to discover. Earth has been the only planet that has the ability to sustain human life, but what if there can be other planets for us to travel to? In the future, what if we can opt into a new life in another galaxy? What if we had the technology to live eternally by cloning our bodies? Would it be ethical? Technological advancements have come a long way, and still have so many possibilities left to uncover. Some are quite amazing, but others are frightening. Keaton submerges readers into a future Earth that has so much opportunity to offer in the way of technology, but as we all know, opportunity in the wrong hands can inevitably lead to power hunger and a spiraling downfall of mankind, or even one's own demise as we've seen in world leaders in the past.


A man named Barrabas has been sent to another planet, a mining planet known for housing criminals of the Church. The Church has immense power in this future that Keaton has created and the Prophet rules the Earth. A false Prophet, according to many. Barrabas and a band of cohorts plan on taking over the mines and what better way than by using knowledge to succeed. One man has been sent to search out the true identity of Barrabas, knowing that he has undergone the tricky business of this technological concept known as transference. This means that anyone could potentially be walking around in a body that they were not born with. Getting back to Earth and back to his family is the only thing that Barrabas cares about and he is willing to do anything to make it happen. He knows that he was a man who had a wife, a mother, and two sisters. He also wants answers as to why he was transferred into Barrabas' body and that may cost him his life...a second time.


B.T. Keaton has an eccentric world filled with original characters and immensely powerful technological creativity. Fear of the unknown makes this story hard to put down and difficult to keep reading all at the same time. While this story begins slowly due to the introduction of a new world and complex characters, it does pick up pace considerably quickly about halfway though. It is a bit difficult to understand what is happening for a little while and we believe this is due to a lack of descriptiveness of the characters in the beginning. Once Barrabas leaves Eridania, it becomes easier to distinguish characters. Most of the questions that a reader may formulate in the beginning do get answered even though it is quite complex with an underlying religious tone. Overall, the story is worth the read and is recommended for readers who enjoy sci-fi and dystopian fiction.
