What would you give to live forever? Seventeen-year-old Elijah Brighton wants to become an ascender-a post-Singularity human/machine hybrid-after all, they're smarter, more enlightened, more compassionate, and above all, achingly beautiful. But Eli is a legacy human, preserved and cherished for his unaltered genetic code, just like the rainforest he paints. When a fugue state possesses him and creates great art, Eli miraculously lands a sponsor for the creative Olympics. If he could just master the fugue, he could take the gold and win the right to ascend, bringing everything he's yearned for within reach... including his beautiful ascender patron. But once Eli arrives at the Games, he finds the ascenders are playing games of their own. Everything he knows about the ascenders and the legacies they keep starts to unravel... until he's running for his life and wondering who he truly is.… (mais)

I like the author's description of a boy who wants to be a machine. This definitely belongs on the You g Adult shelf. It's an interesting world and l like the characters. I look forward to the rest of the series. ( )

OH MY GOSH! WHAT IF THIS REALLY HAPPENED IN THE FUTURE? I couldn't stop reading this book as I was concerned for Eli, his ill mom, and his dedicated friend. Since he could remember Elijah Brighton wanted to have a chance to ascend, to live forever, and to take care of his mom with no more experimental and illegal drugs to keep his mom until they could both ascend to her fail body could be as good as new. With the chance to be in the Olympics where he could ascend he was on step closer to achieving his goal. I admired this teenager and his love for his mom and I can't wait to read this rest of the series to see what happens next! ( )

Creationist rag targeted at a young adult audience. No idea how this was in my to-read stack, but I finished it only through my force of fascination.

It was like a failed propagandist experiment book. One that paints organized religion as a resistance against evil science lords and their "highly complicated web of lies."

just terrible. ( )

This book is thought provoking. What does it mean to be human in a world filled with ascended humans who will live forever like the alchemists envisioned and legacy, unascended humans. I loved how when we meet Eli, he is drifting in unexamined narratives that ascending is the goal of legacy humans...
