The world as we know it is gone, ruined and destroyed by the apocalypse war. The year is 3022, and technology is no longer how we know it to be today. Some of the developments have been created on the moon. Merlin contemplates using magic on humans, not knowing if they are worthy of the power or not.
Much has changed since the war in 3000 A.D., the most devastating war known to man. chemical and nuclear weaponry is to blame. Technology allows humans to be studied as prototypes as a super soldier with gravity wings, and other benefits created with technology.
This is an interesting and entertaining dystopian futuristic book with a plot you won't be able to tear yourself away from. Lucas is studied by scientists as he is given things like gravity wings to be the first prototype of the super soldier. His other general abilities are limited, he is only taught what he will need to pass the tests. There's torture and tests, more torture and more tests.
I thought this book was pretty well written and held my interest throughout the book. It's a short and to the point book that I finished in one sitting. I wish the cover had an image that portrayed what the book was about. I enjoyed the read, and would recommend this to any dystopian fans, or those who like books about a future world that is completely different from our own today. I give this book 5/5.
