“Locke’s work transcends genres – a techno-thriller that challenges assumptions about the nature of reality and human consciousness, laced with romance and corporate intrigue. Skirting the frontiers of quantum physics, it twists the space-time continuum and the fundamental doctrine of cause-and-effect. Reminiscent of The Matrix, the story opens new possibilities of perception and action. It is a beacon for those who dare to see beyond themselves, and master their own destiny.”

—Emanuele Basile, Managing Editor, Mondadori Italy
