Sentient, an epic tale of humanity’s defeat and resurgence spanning 168,000 years of struggle, weaving together three intersecting story lines.
Intent on being the supreme sentient race in the galaxy, the telepathic Mind Warriors of T’rox, discover our species. On our idyllic home world, we live in peace, connected to a planetary collective consciousness. The encounter results in our near complete genocide. Placing our hope in a distant colony, we are forced to genetically block our own telepathic consciousness in order to evade detection. The loss of connected consciousness has devastating consequences.
T’rox is now a dying civilization, stagnant, and plagued by infighting. Their discovery of the Lost Colony, Earth, reinvigorates and unites their society under the banner of new conquest. The unique genomic profile of schizophrenia holds the key to unlocking the genetic block to unify humanity in shared consciousness. Unaware and unprepared, humanity’s fate lies in the hands of misfits and outcasts.
Simply out of this world! Sentient by Dr. Victor Acquista is a marvelous work of science fiction at the highest level. Sentient was a delight from the very first sentence, gripping you all the way to the surprise ending.–San Francisco Book Review Star rating: 5/5
