WARNING: POSSESSION OF THIS MATERIAL COULD PUT YOU IN GRAVE DANGER. IT CONTAINS REVELATIONS ABOUT A SECRET HIGH-STAKES GAME -- SOME MIGHT CALL IT A WAR -- FOR CONTROL OF YOUR BRAIN.
It isn't a conflict that makes the front page of the newspaper or is blogged about all over the internet. But it is out there -- it is happening. And now Michael Grant -- the best-selling author -- has risked his life to expose the battle taking place. On one side: Charles and Benjamin Armstrong's Nexus Humanus. On the other: a group of teen hackers who call themselves BZRK.
Twenty-first century warfare that takes place on the macro and micro level for the highest stakes: humanity's free will. It's time to choose sides.
Set in the near future, a conspiracy is afoot to create a perfect and perfectly controlled world. The Armstrong Fancy Gift Corporation is a front for the conjoined Armstrong twins, Charles and Benjamin, and the plot to create their own version of utopia.
A shadowy guerilla group known as BZRK form a nascent resistance movement. Both sides develop sophisticated nanotechnology to achieve their goals:
-The Armstrong twins develop the nanobot, a stealth device that latches onto the brains of unsuspecting citizens. -BZRK's DNA-derived biots are deployed to search out and destroy the insidious bots. If biots are destroyed, the brain cells of their DNA-donor also die. Hence the name BZRK.
