The Victor's Heritage is Book Two of 'The Jonah Trilogy' and rests upon the spunky personality of teen Corrag, who is on track to receive the Augment brain implant that will connect her to the Cloud and thus to the knowledge base of the world.
But this goal about to be derailed, thanks to her association with a boy who is a veteran of war - and who offers quite a different perspective of their world than the one she's been raised with.
In 2045, the U.S. is divided into two very different countries. Within these nations lie the seeds of two competing political and social ideologies (much as is happening today). And when one special person 'crosses the border' between worlds and faces isolation, abandonment, and trials, this makes for a powerful read, indeed.
The Victor's Heritage, being part of a trilogy, enhances the setting provided in Book One, Savior; but while readers ideally should read the first, such is not a requirement to arrive late on the scene with its sequel. Through the vision and perceptions of Corrag, this world springs immediately to life with all its potentials for love, change, and devastation.
The Victor's Heritage is especially recommended for mature teens to young adults - particularly for those inclined to enjoy dystopian stories of the future, who will appreciate a vivid turn of events as Corrag's initial acceptance of her future turns into questions with terrible answers. The connections between family and friends are especially well drawn and lend an immediacy and excitement to the plot, which is powered by and packed with emotional revelations and swift action.
The Victor's Heritage
The Victor's Heritage by Anthony Caplan
The Augment, touted by those in power to be the perfect solution for the greater good. Everyone is urged to receive it, embrace it and be controlled by it, but there are always those who would rather die than be controlled, those who see it for what it is, evil. The year is 2045 and America is now two countries, balancing on a thin truce that could be shattered at any minute and Corrag becomes a free thinking, high spirited female who made one error that will catapult her into the world of revolution and exile, with little hope of freedom, unless she takes her future into her own hands.
Follow Corrag as she sees her dystopian world through eyes that have been opened to different truths and different realities as she weaves her way through the maze of life and survival.
The Victor’s Heritage by Anthony Caplan is non-stop action, adventure and completely spell-binding reading from start to finish. Mr. Caplan has woven a tale that sometimes parallels contemporary events, although set in a futuristic world. We often see teens as rebellious, as they seek to forge their own path, but is that always so terrible? Corrag is one such teen who has been forced into a world she is ill-prepared for and yet is ready to embrace new ideas and concepts far from the standard “party” lines. Mr. Caplan captures the force of youth, of coming of age, of new awareness and puts it all together into a tale that never lets up!
Once again, he writes with a skilled hand and brilliant detail, bring every character and scene to life as the tension stays taut and thought-provoking while never veering off from being 100% entertaining, start to finish! A definite MUST READ, not matter your age!
