Messiah (Apotheosis, #3) by S. Andrew Swann
Mar 22, Daniel Attack of the Books! Burton rated it liked it Shelves: science-fiction.
I like action. I like suspense. I like drama. And increasingly, I like S. He knows how to write all of these into his plot, and he does it deftly, smoothly, and never lets the writing get in the way of the story.

We are introduced to a few new characters, learn more about our antagonist Adam, and watch the known universe crumble before his claim as the one true god. Adam, the nanobot entity possessed of a more than slightly insane artificial intelligence, has assumed divine status. He begins each planetary invasion with a perfunctory demand of its inhabitants that they worship him by joining in his restructuring of the universe on a molecular level. It is horrifying, a destruction by our own creation, and Swann pulls no punches.

Adam never develops far beyond the villain and with good reason. The people we care about—our heroes—are who we begin to see grow and develop in the furnace of their fight for survival.
In Heretics, Swann shows his characters begin to step out of themselves, grow, and connect with each other. That said, it is important to note, that Swann writes with more focus on action and plot than on internal character development.

And you know what? It works great. I finished the last page of Heretics, set it down, and immediately picked up Messiah book three, which came out just this year and started reading. I had no desire to put off the conclusion to the Apotheosis, and I look forward to seeing the finish of the story. A cautionary comment on content: One scene in the book bothered me. At one point, the mutant tiger begins a relationship with one of the humans also mutated, but not quite like him characters. While there is only brief description, there is foreplay and reference to a sexual relationship. This is science-fiction, and perhaps interspecies romance has a place there, but it was the sexual description that was a bridge too far for me.
Fortunately, the scene is brief, short, and not reoccurring. Jun 03, Cathy rated it liked it Shelves: zz-challenge-bcc-scifi , zz-challenge-library-borrowed , series-reminder , science-fiction , read-in Better than the first in this Apotheosis series, maybe a 3.
A truly frightening Big Bad has arrived to unite the disparate forces in a battle that supercedes politics, religion or philosophy. The pace has picked up and by the end I felt an excited anticipation for the next book and the resolution of this epic confrontation. The characters have been fleshed out a bit not meant to be a punny, reference to what nanoparticles can do , but are still not the driving force of this story.
This one is Better than the first in this Apotheosis series, maybe a 3. This one is another morality tale entirely about free will, independence, assimilation and obliviation.

It's also about people putting aside their differences in a crisis and working together in order to survive, and thereby finding similarities they didn't realize existed. It also seems to be building toward a rather nice job of weaving in elements from all 3 of Swann's series in this timeline Moreau, Hostile Takeover and Apotheosis , promarily the 2nd two space-faring trilogies, to illuminate aspects that were hinted at or obscured before.
I'm looking forward to seeing the final shape the elements of the puzzle will take. Mar 17, Julian rated it liked it Shelves: Very enjoyable read. I like a lot of the characters and I really liked the way worm holes work in his universe and the time paradoxes they can create. However, the story with Adam is starting to get a little far fetched now. I am worried that the third book is just going to punch straight through reality and into its own little land of make believe.
