Hello! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a Captivating Covers, so today I am sharing yet another beautiful cover! Check it out:
Author: Steve Toutongi
Genre: Science Fiction, Adult
To Be Published: April 19th, 2016
Even though this novel has just been published yesterday, if I were browsing in the bookstore and I saw this on the shelves this would probably be a cover-buy — I’m just being honest. I enjoy anything galaxy-looking, and this one just hits the spot. I don’t know about you, but I rarely see novels that have such a simple title, so that was too, pleasing. I have to admit before adding this novel to my TBR on Goodreads, I didn’t even read the synopsis. However, I saw that it does have at least a 3.98 rating on Goodreads, so it has to be somewhat good right? Read it for yourself!
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Join by Steve Toutonghi
“What if you could live multiple lives simultaneously, have constant, perfect companionship, and never die? That’s the promise of Join, a revolutionary technology that allows small groups of minds to unite, forming a single consciousness that experiences the world through multiple bodies. But as two best friends, Chance and Lucky, living in an alternate version of our own near future quickly discover, the light of that miracle may be blinding them to its horrors.
Jolted out of comfortable, professional routines by a brutal encounter with a terrifying stranger and a malfunction in the join technology, Chance and Lucky follow a faint trail of clues off the grid in their desperate search for a cure. Their journey leads them into the scarred heart of the North American continent. There, within the improvised shelter of the “solos” left behind by the rush of technology, they encounter the architects of a new kind of human consciousness. With the planet descending into environmental ruin, their trust of each other becomes their only guide through the moral hazards of a society in which individual identity has come undone. Along the way, they must confront their own long-buried secrets, and learn how their story of injured conscience connects them to the arc of human evolution.
A deftly crafted, kaleidoscopic novel with the pulse of a thriller, Join explores big ideas in the current zeitgeist on an intimate, human scale.”
