Apex by Ramez Naam
“Nexus and Crux are a devastating probe into the political consequences of transhumanism; a sharp, chilling look at our likely future.”
– Charles Stross, author of the Halting State and Laundry Files series
They call them the Apex – humanity’s replacement. They’re smarter, faster, better. And infinitely more dangerous.
Global unrest spreads as mass protests advance throughout the US and China, Nexus-upgraded riot police battle against upgraded protestors, and a once-dead scientist plans to take over the planet’s electronic systems. The world has never experienced turmoil of this type, on this scale.
Humanity is dying. Long live the Apex.

Praise and Reviews for Nexus:
Nexus is a gripping piece of near future speculation, riffing on the latest developments in cognition enhancement. With all the grit and pace of the Bourne films, this is a clever and confident debut by a writer expertly placed to speculate about where we’re heading. Unlike a lot of SF, this novel dares to look the future square in the eye.”
– Alastair Reynolds, bestselling author of Revelation Space and Blue Remembered Earth
“Any old writer can take you on a roller coaster ride, but it takes a wizard like Ramez Naam to take you on the same ride while he builds the roller coaster a few feet in front of your plummeting car… you’ll want to read it before everyone’s talking about it.”
– John Barnes, author of the Timeline Wars and Daybreak series
“a fast, fun read which is both emotionally engaging and thought-provoking. You’ll be mulling over the implications of Nexus — the book and the drug — long after you put the book down.”
– Annalee Newitz, IO9.com
Praise and Reviews for Crux:
“A blisteringly paced technothriller that dives deeper and even better into the chunky questions raised by Nexus. This is a fabulous book, and it ends in a way that promises at least one more. Count me in.”
– Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother and Pirate Cinema
“Smart, thoughtful, and hard to drop, this richly nuanced sequel outshines its predecessor with a wide cast of characters and some complicated, uneasy questions about power, responsibility, and the future of humanity.”
– Publishers Weekly
