"Leviticus" by Daniel Seltzer (5 Stars)

* * * * *
Book #1, When We Were Gods Trilogy
by Daniel Seltzer

Genre: Sci-fi
* * * * *
The author was looking for some honest reviews in exchange for a free copy of his book and I happily obliged! This is the first book in what will be a trilogy that examines some pretty controversial subjects as we begin a new era where science is God. Technology is going places only dreamed of, making America an unrivaled super power, its citizens never again wanting for anything because everything is attainable.

Protagonist, Levi Furstman, as well as the reader, is forced to try and answer the weighty question of whether or not we should, just because we can. After all, if there is nothing to work for, what do you have to achieve? And if you can live forever, who will hold you accountable when there is no judgement day?

Leviticus is not a light-read book. It is about scientific achievement and moral debate. I didn't always see the point of certain chapters but eventually it became clear as the story progressed. You may not always understand the science of it, but you won't be able to help it when your mind wanders; when you ask yourself, is this right?

You can learn more about this book at the author's website and purchase a copy for yourself at amazon.
