The Lives of Tao by Wesley Chu

“Tipping his hat to both science fiction novels and comic books,
Chu delivers a narrative that is at times pulse-pounding, laugh-out-loud
funny and thoughtful. Part James Bond, part Superman, part Orphanage.
There’s something here for everyone.”
Myke Cole, author of Control Point and Fortress Frontier 

“A totally original sci-fi thriller that will have you hooked from page one with both riveting action and a sly wit. This is a story of human history, the hidden powers that have shaped it, and one man’s transformation from complete nobody to a key fighter in the war for humanity’s future.”
Ramez Naam, author of Nexus

The Lives of Tao by Wesley ChuWhen out-of-shape IT technician Roen Tan woke up and started hearing voices in his head, he naturally assumed he was losing it.

He wasn’t.

He now has a passenger in his brain – an ancient alien life-form called Tao, whose race crash-landed on Earth before the first fish crawled out of the oceans. Now split into two opposing factions – the peace-loving, but under-represented Prophus, and the savage, powerful Genjix – the aliens have been in a state of civil war for centuries. Both sides are searching for a way off-planet, and the Genjix will sacrifice the entire human race, if that’s what it takes.

Meanwhile, Roen is having to train to be the ultimate secret agent. Like that’s going to end up well…
