[Book Review] Apex

Apex / Ramez Naam (Powell's Books)

Apex finishes the story arc started in Nexus, and continued in Crux.  Kaden Lane and his friends never intended for their work to tear the world apart.  They sought enlightenment and betterment of humankind, and instead global unrest spreads as agents manipulate governments and civilians for their own power and ends.  A final confrontation is coming to a head, the question is, can humanity and post-humans come to peaceful co-existence, and if they can't, can they survive?

This near-future, political science-fiction thriller starts with major world powers manipulated to the cusp of World War.  Revolution is happening, and with it fear of persecution, fear of the different, the unknown, and of becoming obsolete.

An excellent trans-humanist novel, raising questions of humanity and morality, and maybe the next evolution of humankind.
