Description

A team of neuroscientists uncover amazing new capabilities in the brain that may steer human evolution toward miraculous and deadly frontiers in this spectacular debut work of speculative science fiction—Limitless meets James Rollins—that combines spirituality and science in an inventive, mind-blowing fashion.

For decades, scientists have speculated about the untapped potential of the human brain. Now, neuroscientist Chuck Brenton has made an astonishing breakthrough. He has discovered the key—the crucial combination of practice and conditioning—to access the incredible power dormant in ninety percent of our brains. Applying his methods to test subjects, he has stimulated abilities that elevate brain function to seemingly "godlike" levels.

These extraordinary abilities can transform the world, replacing fear and suffering with tranquility and stability. But in an age of increasing militarization, corporate exploitation, and explosive technological discovery, a group of influential power brokers are determined to control Brenton's new superbeings for their own manipulative ends—and their motives may be far from peaceful.

The God Wave
fullDescription

A team of neuroscientists uncover amazing new capabilities in the brain that may steer human evolution toward miraculous and deadly frontiers in this spectacular debut work of speculative science fiction—Limitless meets James Rollins—that combines spirituality and science in an inventive, mind-blowing fashion.

For decades, scientists have speculated about the untapped potential of the human brain. Now, neuroscientist Chuck Brenton has made an astonishing breakthrough. He has discovered the key—the crucial combination of practice and conditioning—to access the incredible power dormant in ninety percent of our brains. Applying his methods to test subjects, he has stimulated abilities that elevate brain function to seemingly "godlike" levels.

These extraordinary abilities can transform the world, replacing fear and suffering with tranquility and stability. But in an age of increasing militarization, corporate exploitation, and explosive technological discovery, a group of influential power brokers are determined to control Brenton's new superbeings for their own manipulative ends—and their motives may be far from peaceful.

        February 22, 2016
        In a strong debut reminiscent of Ben Bova’s classic work, Hemstreet crafts a tense tale of cutting-edge SF in which an ambitious experiment leads to unexpected results. Neuroscientist Chuck Brenton and mathematician Matt Streegman, both at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland, join forces in a project designed to allow people to control machinery with their minds. Collaborating with other specialists and test subjects, they form a company and plunge headlong into their research, which yields astounding results: with enough practice, people can master the so-called zeta brain wave to interface with technology without a physical connection at all. Chuck wants to dedicate the company to humanitarian goals, but Matt sees profit, quickly securing an exclusive contract with a shadowy U.S. government agency called Deep Shield. When Chuck learns Deep Shield’s true purpose, he and his friends are forced into a desperate struggle for freedom. This works well as a techno-thriller with a plausible premise, and Hemstreet imbues his sprawling cast with depth and character. However, it suffers from a plodding predictability—the ideological split between Chuck and Matt and the conflict with Deep Shield are overplayed tropes yielding few surprises. Agent: Emma Parry, Janklow and Nesbit.
