Transference is an intense work of science fiction penned by author B. T. Keaton. Conceptual, passionate and exciting on every page, Transference is the tale of a criminal slave laborer called Barrabas Madzimure. Whilst mining for the precious eridanium ores on a planet far from home, Barrabas kills a prison warden and finds himself sentenced to death. In a world where immortal life has been achieved, this terror forces him to confess a truth: he himself is an immortal who has transferred his identity to keep himself alive. As he claims to be the missing war hero Thaniel Kilraven, the investigation heats up around him and Barrabas must make a mad dash for freedom.
I found Transference to be a thrilling read from start to finish, not least because of its tense conceptual style and mid-level violent interludes. Barrabas is a fascinating hero with much to discover, and the mystery of his identity and motives really keeps the plot twisting around him with some excellent pacing. Author B. T. Keaton utilizes this to create a mysterious atmosphere with excellent prose but also develops a powerful political chokehold that looms over the rest of the action like a heavy shadow. As the one-man-mission collides with the bigger picture, wonderful developments occur and the concepts of identity and power are intelligently explored amongst the battles and strategies at play. Overall, Transference is a highly recommended read for fans of both conceptual science fiction and intense political thrillers with plenty of action and adventure.
