Daniel Walker has had one goal since his parents were killed by an alien race called the Garuda on the planet Mars - to find out if Tau Madea IV is really habitable. Unfortunately, it hasn't been easy to fulfill this, his parent's last mission. The world has become terrified that the Garuda will attack again, so space travel has been banned. Will Daniel be able to change minds and finally see his dream come true?
Meanwhile, a deadly pathogen has infected some of the world's population. Called T-Nanogen, it's a disease that eventually eats away at a person. Carriers have been isolated in camps to prevent the spread. Cadmon Dhyre is a brilliant scientist infected with this very disease. He is allowed out (in a limited capacity) due to his brilliance. However, the company he works for will not allow him to develop a cure. Will he defy them and find one anyway? Or will he allow thousands of people (including himself) to die at the hands of this merciless disease
Categorized as science fiction, Nanomorphosis is a thrilling story involving alien beings, space travel and nanotechnology. The tension in the book builds slowly from beginning to end, like a bicycle racing downhill. By the time you realize you're hooked, it's too late to stop.
I enjoyed the balance of science and story that this book presented. In some books of this genre, you feel the need for a doctorate before even beginning to understand the technical aspects. There was just enough in this book to help it feel real while not overwhelming the reader. This makes the book accessible to even the most remote of sci-fi lovers.
The characters in this story are varied, from the truly psychotic to the hero destined to save the world and everyone in between. The author developed the characters well. I hated the ones that I was supposed to despise and liked the ones that I was supposed to enjoy. But, I will warn you, as with any well-written book, there were times that I wanted to fling my e-reader across the room. And, the tension only builds the further you get into the story.
One further warning, there is some adult content in this book. I believe that it was written tastefully. As someone who is not into erotica nor romance, I don't think it was super-offensive. But, I still wouldn't recommend this book to anyone under 16.
I can happily report, though, that the book was well-edited. I found only 5 or 6 errors in its entirety. Therefore, I gladly rate Nanomorphosis 4 out of 4 stars. I highly recommend this to fans of suspense-filled science fiction. Just don't start thinking you're going to read this in short bursts. As the saying goes, "Once you pop, you can't stop."
