In return for Smith’s demise, Nick’s young daughter won’t be tested and won’t go to an Academy.

And the world hasn’t come crashing down. Which brings me to my second gripe: It’s hard coming back to them as When I was a small maggot, I read a lot of thrillers.


DAR agents won’t be in on the deception, and will attempt to hunt Nick down. Brilliance is a very brainy thriller, and it moves at breakneck speed. In Chicago, a woman can go invisible by being where no one is looking.

Highly recommended for fans of sci fi thrillers and action films. Author Marcus Sakey instills his thriller with deft writing and rich characterization conveyed with simple strokes. Let’s start by establishing that one sign of a terrible writer is that the book’s characters seem like only a thin veil over the author’s own personality.

Spoiler free 1 sake Jan 19, I would also venture to say that fans of Larry Correia would enjoy this as it does explore some libertarian ideas and explores the meanings of freedom. All children were now to be tested at the age brilliancee eight, and those testing as Tier One Brilliants would be removed from their families and sent to special “academies” in an effort to shape their gifts in a way that would not threaten the Normals.

Books by Marcus Sakey. The most highly gifted among them–the Tier Ones–had incredible abilities.


Brilliance (Brilliance Saga, #1) by Marcus Sakey

This is the environment in which Cooper and brilliane Equitable Services must work. One abnorm is a human lie detector, another moves so surreptitiously tha Beginning in the s, a small percentage of humans with unusual abilities began to brilkiance born.

Take our protagonist, Nick Cooper, called “Cooper,” who can read patterns so well he can even track fellow brilliants the name of these gifted people knowing nothing other than their movements to escape him. We have prodigies, geniuses, the “gifted,” etc. They are a threat to society.

Zenn Scarlett is a bright and occasionally a-little-too-smart-for-her-own-good year-old girl training hard to become an exoveterinarian. And this HAS to be a movie surely? Some brilliants – who abhor these policies – become terrorists. Then we get to know this killer–who is a family man, devoted to his kids, and fond of his ex-wife though they have divorced when we find out why, we know enough about him for it to make perfect sense.

In fact, the terrorists that Nick and his group hunts are very special.

Brilliance – Marcus Sakey

Jul 17, George K. And Sakey does do a good job of making the book succeed as a standalone story. Are brrilliance seriously telling me, after I have read hundreds of pages that depend on this man’s super power as his driving force brilkiance main characterization, that his power somehow didn’t function at the most crucial moments of his life? Note on the Audiobook My final rating was reduced in part due to the narration of Luke Daniels.

Ancillary Justice Ann Leckie 9. One bomb I can understand. Given that he was born about an hour from where I live albeit in another country I am going to pretend he is a local author because good writing from local authors is cool.

It’s hard coming back to them as an adult, though. My Take Sakey has written a highly enjoyable and easy to read “superhero” bfilliance fiction. So if you have brilliancw spare moment, please tell us your thoughts by writing a reader’s review.


Jan 02, seak rated it really liked it Shelves: This book does make one think. His ultimate quarry, however, is an activist that calls himself John Smith. But in Sakey’s book, the brilliants are a problem. In the year narcus, in an alternate version of the present, there are normal people and then there are “brilliants” aka twists, abnorms. While not award winning fiction, you will certainly enjoy the trip.

One such agent is Nick Cooper. Cooper also wrestles with inner conflict along the way, first with the fact that brilloance young daughter is an abnorm who will soon be taken into protective custody by his own agency and assigned to a special school for Brilliants, as well as his romantic dalliance with Shannon, a sexy abnorm allied with the suspected terrorist leader.

They made me kill thousands, but I only have one target now. And third, the ending is marcuw something Hollywood would love, which is to say predictable and much too neat and happy-feeling.

Two negative takeaways here, however.

Nick Cooper is an agent for a group called Equitable Services, and they are tasked with eliminating terrorists. Dec 03, Liz Barnsley rated it it was amazing Shelves: It felt more like an added element solely there marcue further solidify Cooper’s action-dude status. I HATE reading the first book of a trilogy and then having to wait for the rest of the series imagine my feelings re George R I’ve read a couple of Marcus Sakey’s books before, and they’ve all been page-turners especially The Blade Itself not to be confused with the Joe Abercrombie book of the same nameand this one certainly was as well.
