Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Chronologue is a work of fiction in the science fiction, futuristic fiction, and dystopian sub-genres, and was penned by author Gregory Thomas. The work is indeed for mature audiences due to its complex concepts and some use of explicit language but is never graphic or inaccessible to more sensitive readers. Set in the twenty-third century, we find ourselves in a grimly realistic future world where robotic automation has taken over most facets of daily life. Told from multiple perspectives, we see the rise of a new form of AI, a supervirus that affects and infects every tangible object it can seek out, and the human spirit being tested to its limits as we discover what it truly means to survive.

Author Gregory Thomas has crafted a fully realized and conceptually strong vision of the dangers of the future, and the clinical path down which technology could lead our species. Darkly satisfying, the concept and plot construction is the strongest part of the work by far, and hard science fiction fans will enjoy the detailed expositions of how this world works, from governmental levels right down to the everyday people trying to cope. For me, there was a little of an emotive human element missing with such a vast array of characters and settings, but I could see how each player fits into the wider frame of the tale, and the dialogue was both informative and entertaining. Overall, I would certainly recommend Chronologue for science fiction and dystopian fans seeking inventive and high-octane plot-driven stories to enjoy.
