FATAL ERROR. NO WAY OUT. RUN.
Net, a brilliant, unruly hacker, missteps into the web of Njla Host - a double-dealing bounty hunter he mistakes for an undercover cop.
When his own team targets Njla, Net tips off the police to protect her and his team brands him a traitor.
On the lam and cornered, he is about to surrender when an enigmatic Swarm of voices activates in his head, surprising him: artificial neural intelligence? Legacy? External process?
Net has no idea, but he must make a choice: trust the Swarm or not.
The right decision will restore the team's reliance on him and reveal the entanglement with the mysterious voice.
The wrong one will shatter the last hope of outwitting the omnipotence of Deep City’s corporate overlords.
From the afterword to the book
In the world sketched by Michael B. Morgan, individuals with split and incoherent personalities - remnants of humanity grafted with absurd, as well as harmful, physical and mental enhancements - float in the urban dominance of large multinational corporations and masters of data and information flows. On one side are the rulers of globalization at all costs, and on the other are the dispossessed and borderline souls who choose to either fight back, cheat the system, or give up and live on the margins.
In Root Legacy, reality has no recognizable coordinates of space or time; it is like a whirlpool in which memories, dreams, emotions, desires, and visions swirl. A novel about the elusive, transparency, malaise, mental dystopia, but also about redemption, opening the mind to the new perspective of expanded consciousness.
