Our protagonist helped create a drug that alters the brain so you feel a divine presence, and, if taken in high enough doses, can see and interact with it as well.

It’s a very interesting idea, and the mystery around who has put this drug, never approved for release, on the street is what drives the narrative.

In parts, it was exciting and engaging, in others it felt a little mundane, even repetitive. It gets better towards the end, but the climax seems to come and go quickly and without reaching the heights I was expecting.

I also felt the ‘revelations’ about prior events could have been extracted in a more interesting fashion, rather than simply dumped into the exposition, almost as a side note.

That said, a perfectly engaging and easy read with some unique (to me) visions of the future.
