Met Chron New-Humans is Book 2 of the Metamorphosis Chronicles science fiction series by Ron S. Nolan, which maps out a potential future for life as we know it on a grand and at times frightening scale. Our world becomes increasingly impacted by the technology humans, referred to as sapiens, create at an ever-burgeoning rate. In a world where governments have been replaced by huge corporations, and the health of the Earth is taken to its tipping point, we seem to look to the heavens literally for salvation, as the mining colony established on the moon becomes integral to the main hope for our future existence. As typical with our entire history, there is a full spectrum of good and evil players seeking to exert their plans for our future in the genuine attempt at our redemption, and who succeeds will determine our very survival.
I found Met Chron New-Humans to be fast-paced, very interesting and thought-provoking. The future scenario that Ron S. Nolan laid out seemed to be plausible and definitely evoked thoughtful consideration, sometimes giving rise to concern for our future generations. Whilst it painted a picture of tremendous problems facing humanity, there was always an underlying message of hope and salvation which could lead us to the path we would love to see our children take. What was perhaps even more impressive was the scope of this book, spanning not just our world but also our moon and other planets, as well as a plethora of technological achievements that seem to be within our reach. It was well worth reading just for these concepts alone, and I for one hope a lot of these are achieved.
