Brilliance by Marcus Sakey is Stimulating and Engaging

bk_brillianceWhat would the world be like if a very small part of the population was born gifted? Superior to almost everybody else?

This is a concept that we see in many different stories but every once and awhile, a storyteller manages to tell a fresh and engaging story. Brilliance by Marcus Sakey is one such story.

Sakey spins a tale of super intelligent individuals struggling with a society that reaps the benefits they bring but doesn’t quite know what to do with them. The deceit, betrayal, and political intrigue keeps the reader engaged and thinking about the story.

While Sakey includes a number of twists in the story, the twists are well set up and foreshadowed so that none of the turns feels like it is just a twist for the purpose of keeping it interesting. By the end of the story, you will have been through an intense ride, satisfied with experience, and looking for the next book in the series.
