Nanovax was supposed to be our salvation.
Death and disease, now obsolete.

Until the terrorist attack. Fifteen cities in a single day.

Again, they said Nanovax was the answer. The same technology meant to heal us could now be used, through an algorithm, to track us, to predict human behaviors… To thwart future terrorists.

I'm Lieutenant Brian Goff. I received the first injection. It healed my wounds in the war. I became the face of Nanovax... Then, the algorithm identified me as a threat... a terrorist. Now, I'm on the run and fighting against the very technology that once saved my life and if that wasn't frightening enough the government has my daughter.

Algorithm is the first book in Theophilus Monroe's Nanoverse, an action-packed dystopian sci fi thriller series. As a former soldier, suffering from PTSD, Brian Goff is not only a threat to the new system, but his very injury has given him control over the nanobots. Like Neo, in The Matrix, Goff is an unlikely hero whose "technomagic" makes him the last hope for human liberty, freedom, and justice.

This story is set in the future in Kansas City Missouri where everyone is injected with the “Nanovax” that cures diseases with an algorithm that is embedded in it that is the perfect executor of preventative justice.

The algorithm would be levied only against the most imminent and gravest terrorist threats.

The main characters of the “Resistance”
Brian Goff soldier and first injected with Nanovax
“Bonecrusher” Keith Koontz fellow soldier
Dr. John Larson co-inventor of the Nanovax
Seneca Willms, I.T. extraordinaire
Dr. Eloise Larson wife of Dr. Larson and the one who found the flaw in the algorithm
Liza Rodriguez Spec-Ops soldier
Father Ezra Pulowski who has a natural immunity to nanobots
Carlos Rodriguez convicted Navy Seal in Leavenworth
Susie Goff daughter of Brian

President Harrison Neuhaus
Rowland Fuentes Chief of Staff
Dr. Archimedes Flat co-inventor of Nanovax

That’s all I’m telling about the story except for my favorite lines of the story.

“Brian Jefferson Goff. You have been marked by the algorithm as a threat to national security. By the authority of the President of the United States, you are under arrest. Do not attempt to resist. Your peripheral nervous system is now under the jurisdiction of the United States Bureau of Prisons. You have been charged with attempted terrorism and found guilty. The judgment of the algorithm is final. You are hereby sentenced to life in prison without parole. Your motor control will be returned to you upon your arrival at Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary. You are not entitled to an appeal.”

But Dr. Flat knows… this is what he intended. The algorithm is more than a code to predict crime. It’s like a religion, a law more absolute than the Ten Commandments. Flat claims it’s scientific, based on proof, and he’s done well to convince most of the country and the government that this is the case. But the fact of the matter is it’s based on inferences from things like heart rates and blood pressure that are too human to be confined to any kind of formula. The algorithm doesn’t root out crimes. It roots out threats… threats to the nanonetwork.”

None of us need to define ourselves as victims of circumstance. Horrible things happen. But these things need not define us. When we cling to others, when we allow love to flow through our hearts, we can find ourselves again.

Wow…just wow.

I really love this story. It took me back to the movie “The Matrix.” It has that science fiction, the fourth dimension, planes of reality what is real kinda feel to it. It was action packed and full of page turning angst that kept me awake while reading it.

I would highly recommend it to everyone because it crosses many genres and is an interesting and entertaining read.

This title will be released on October 28, 2021.

What is the Gates of Eden Universe?
A lot of religions and traditions had some kind of “other” world, a primeval world, unmarred and unstained by human corruption. In the Judeo-Christian tradition it was the Garden of Eden. For the Druids and Celts, it is Annwn. For Louisiana vodouisants it is Guinee.

All the Gates of Eden books are based on a particular mythological or spiritual tradition. While the magical systems are fictional, they are based on rites, lore, and mythologies unique to these traditions. There is a lot of overlap between traditions in these books–what the Druids call one thing, the Voodoo Mambos call something else. In the end, however, we see in these books a magical system that transcends the differences in religion and myth and unifies us all under a common force, a power, something uniquely human but nonetheless absent from our magic-less world. There may be many “Gates,” but ultimately there is one Eden, one Annwn, one Guinee. One humanity.

I couldn’t have explained it better. If you can’t find something in this starter library that you like then I don’t think it can be found. It is such a teaser for all things mythical.
