Imagine a world where your every thought, every memory, and even your emotions can be experienced by others. A world where social media and invasion of privacy is taken to the ultimate next level. Welcome to the world of The Lattice.
In this first book of The Lattice Trilogy, The Lead Cloak, author Erik Hanberg takes us on an exhilarating journey alongside Byron Shaw, sworn protector of the Lattice. But, when the Lattice is threatened, Byron is faced with the ultimate moral quandary of defending what he knows…or releasing mankind to a long-forgotten world, free of the constant intervention of technology.
The concept sounds chillingly familiar. Hanberg has created a future in which many of our own contemporary struggles exist—advancement of technology, personal privacy, information overload, and the need for constant connectivity. Through masterful storytelling and rich character development, Hanberg takes readers on the ultimate SciFi adventure.
Reading this book also caused me to reflect on my own need for technology. I often think of what our lives would be like without social media or the internet. It’s a love/hate relationship that I think many people identify with and I believe it’s worthy of an ongoing conversation.
I couldn’t put this book down, and at the end it left me wanting more. I look forward to the release of the next installment in this trilogy!
