Zero-Day Rising is the third book in The BetterWorld Trilogy by T. C. Weber and in this installment, Kiyoko sets out on a dangerous mission to free her sister, Waylee, who is facing life imprisonment. She is also out to sink MediaCorp and to destroy U.S. President Rand. What she does not know is that MediaCorp has its own sinister plan; it is about mind control using cerebral implants and they are targeting the population. Can Kiyoko and her sister’s team stop the deadly onslaught of this corporation on humanity?
This is science fiction at its best, a tale of resistance against an aggressive and utterly oppressive government and a corporation about to rob everyone of their freedom. T. C. Weber creates a world that is irresistible, especially to fans of virtual reality games. It is sophisticated and the new digital technology is designed to offer not just endless possibilities but power to its owners that no one or corporation has thus far enjoyed. It is in this digital context that the dynamics of the conflict are created. The characters are well-developed and I enjoyed the way the author fills in the blanks with information from the previous installments without digressing from the main plot.
Zero-Day Rising is filled with action, brimming with sophisticated characters, and propelled forward by a monumental conflict. The writing is superb and this skillfully plotted and beautifully written story demonstrates how a few corporations can take control over the lives of millions of people, thanks to the power of digital technology. It is a novel with a clear and strong message about what happens when too much power is given to the wrong people — it is as entertaining and as mind-boggling as any can be.
