Overview
Jurassic Park meets The Hunger Games in this stunning new high-energy, high-concept tale from first-time novelist Ted Kosmatka, a Nebula Award and Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award finalist.
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
Brilliant geneticist Silas Williams oversees U.S. selections for the Olympic Gladiator competition, an internationally sanctioned bloodsport with only one rule: No entrants may possess human DNA. Desperate to maintain America s edge in the upcoming Games, Silas s superior engages an experimental supercomputer to design the ultimate, unbeatable combatant. The result is a highly specialized killing machine, its genome never before seen on earth. But even a genius like Silas cannot anticipate the consequences of allowing a computer s cold logic to play God. Growing swiftly, the mutant gladiator demonstrates preternatural strength, speed, and most chillingly intelligence. And before hell breaks loose, Silas and beautiful xenobiologist Vidonia Joao must race to understand what unbound science has wrought even as their professional curiosity gives way to a most unexpected emotion: sheer terror.

Kosmatka successfully captures the thrill of groundbreaking technology. . . . The pleasure of his polished, action-packed storytelling is deepened by strong character development. This near-future SF thriller . . . seems destined for the big screen. Library Journal (starred review)"
