One nation, without God...
Colton Pierce apprehends Abberants—those who display symptoms of faith—and quarantines them on a remote island to ensure public safety. Years prior, the government released a genetically-engineered super flu that destroyed the genes believed to be the biological source of spiritual experience in an effort to rid the world of terrorism. As an extractor with the Center for Theological Control, Colton is dedicated to the cause.
But Colton's steadfast commitment is challenged when he learns his own son has been targeted for extraction. An underground militia, the Remnant, agrees to help Colton save his son in exchange for his assistance with their plan to free the Aberrants on the island.
Colton is faced with the most important decision of his life. Remain faithful to the CTC? Or give up everything to save his son?

The idea of no religion is not a new one. This author made me ask what if? What if there was no God? How scary would it truly be to be genetically altered to fit in a mold? Faith is also a no-no. The people that are sent away are the ones that still believe. One man, Colton arrests these believers. However he starts to go away from the ones in charge. What is one man willing to do for his son? I thought that this was a great story about genetics. That alone kept me reading. The author also added in a religious aspect and the relations between family members. I thought that the plot was easy to escape in the setting was different from other books that I have read. I do think that the ending could have been less cryptic. I do have a feeling that there will be a book two! I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy, all opinions are my own.
