Clarity, R. James Stevens

Discovery. Salvation. Redemption.

In the year 2077, the world is stricken by an epic natural disaster, sounding the death knell of modern technology. Sent back to the Dark Ages, billions perish in the aftermath. Seven years later, the scattered populace is left to fend for themselves against rogue organizations that seize the opportunity for a power play in a world without power. 

Three individuals; three separate paths. All will be irreversibly entwined as they search for the answers in an attempt to reassemble the pieces of their broken lives. But will they find what they seek, or will they stumble upon the devastating truth that lies just beyond their reach?

The Epsilon series explores the events seven years after the catastrophic death of a technological society. 
The first installment, Clarity, begins in 2084 and focuses both forward and back on the raw, emotional journeys of former friends and partners. Will they band together to help right wrongs and restore order to the scattered remnants of the populace? Or will their quests for individual fulfillment tear apart an already worn bond?

Clarity is a fascinating, disturbing read that will both intrigue and terrify you all at the same time, it is a novel that you will find hard to stop reading as it compels the reader so perfectly to get lost in the mad world of a scary, dystopian future; It is a book that combines a disturbing dystopian future with incredible military action and it makes for an incredible riveting read! Here is a little bit more about this enchanting novel.

Our novel is set in the near future 70 years from now and it soon discusses the URA which stands for the United Republic of Americas, it is a nation uniting all American continents however they are now all gone and have been destroyed by a cataclysm with its cause still unknown. We do not know much about how it was destroyed but what we do know is that the landscape is now broken and those who have luckily survived now have to fend for themselves in a dark, disturbing, scary world which is filled with many things including a remnant of a technological super power that has the power to change everything and that is all I want to say about this novel because it is so good that I do not want to spoil it for all of you lovely readers!

Clarity is a multi-layered story that is a mix of science fiction and dystopia as well as horror. It is a perfect combination and a rare one to come by and for that I am already madly in love with this novel. It is an ambitious novel and it has payed off for the author because he has wrote a fascinating story and has managed to weave together every part of the novel and its characters perfectly. Our novel is essentially about the journey of former friends and partners as they band to together to help the world and restore order and to help right the wrongs of the past so as well as it being an incredible dystopian novel it is also a great character study.

R. James Stevens – our author – has done an incredible job of creating complex, believable and lovable characters in his disturbing, futuristic world. He so perfectly takes the reader on their journeys and I adored how he weaved in and out of their pasts and presents in his brilliant plot and narrative. Stevens world building floored me, I have not read world building quite like this for a while and so it amazed me, his world building was immaculate and detailed and simply mind blowing.

One of the things I really loved about Stevens writing too was how he managed to create such incredible characters, the characters carried the story along perfectly and without them and their greatness this novel would not have been as good as it was.

To summarise my thoughts on Clarity I would say if you adore science fiction as well as dystopian novels then you will adore this dark and gritty tale. This incredible book gets Four Stars from me!
