Memoir of a Mad Scientist
Dr. Jarian Voss has been a member of the Coalition’s interplanetary empire for as long as he’s been alive. As the highest power on the globe, they changed his life by sending him to the best schools from a young age and made him the cutting-edge scientist he is today. Now he’s repaying the Coalition by developing new technology for them, happy to be part of a laser array project designed to help the off-planet colonies.
Meanwhile, he is expected to use an accident victim for cybernetic research—no matter the cost. Thanks to him, Jarian’s world begins to crumble as everything he thinks he knows about the world—and even his own assignment—is called into question.
As he discovers more about the Coalition’s true goals, what will he have to sacrifice to keep himself and his team ahead of the laser fire? Ultimately, Jarian will have to make a deadly choice: stay loyal to the Coalition or become part of the rising rebellion.
