In a galaxy where popular opinion is instant law, someone unpopular is about to change everything.

✴ ✴ ✴ ✴ ✴ 

Trillions of minds are knitted together in the internet-like Megacosm. The "best" bioengineered people lead galactic civilization, whereas anyone who isn't in the Megacosm is a disposable slave. 

But those brilliant, perfect leaders have failed to predict a threat to their slave-fueled utopia.

Thomas is the rejected child of a galactic leader. Raised on the primitive backwater planet Earth, he's physically disabled, in foster care, and ignorant of his heritage. His sole advantages are his rare mnemonic mutation ... and astronomical ambitions. 

When the Megacosm crashes into his life, Thomas seizes a chance to thrive. But he isn't going to claw his way to the top of society while his friends suffer and die in alien slave ghettos. Armed with minor secrets here and there, Thomas clings to shreds of his shattered privacy and freedom. He alone might be the first to succeed where all other renegades and rebellions have failed.

Well-crafted first chapter. You capture the readers with your beautiful writing, and then capture them all over again with your amazing characters. Can't wait to see where you take this.

Great opening! Thomas is a fascinating protagonist, and I'm hoping that Cherise continues to be a main character too!

A concept of civilization that includes slavery.  Hmmm!  Interesting culture...
