Synarchy Book 1: The Awakening by DCS

Publisher: SVT Publishing, LLC

Released: May 22, 2008

From DCS’ website:

A plan is exposed, centuries in the making and so sinister not even the legend himself could have predicted the depth of its impact on the world.  In his lifetime Stefano Terenzio had a merciless ambition for absolute power.  Two generations later the shock wave he ignited was still being felt.  Now, as the world inches closer to 2012 sides are chosen, families divide and an epic battle begins that will determine whether mankind continues existing in a world of lies or shatters the chains that have held us prisoner since history was written.

I will die to see my will done, and it will be done.”

Shocking yet hopeful, Synarchy slowly unravels the tightly laced reality we have created for ourselves.  Blending the metaphysical with conspiracy, fact with fiction, debut author DCS has opened up a world that will force you to rethink everything you believe about your own.  The knowledge within provokes the question: do you really want to know?

It’s hard to describe this book without giving away too much plot information and spoilers, but I’ll do my best 🙂

The reader follows the lives of multiple characters, most of them being from the Terenzio family.  The Terenzios sort of remind me of a major Mafia family, in that they hold their territory with an iron fist.  But, many conflicts have torn the family apart, some turning traitorous against each other.

At the beginning we see Marcello Terenzio on his death bed, speaking to his grandchildren (they’re triplets).  He sends the triplets on a mission to uncover the truth of The Awakening and behind Earth, with The Brotherhood and traitorous Terenzios trying to stop them.

This book is very layered and complex.  Although it can sometimes be daunting to read a book so complex, DCS writes Synarchy so that doesn’t become an issue.  This is a great book filled with mystery, action, and intrigue.  It’s very detailed and a quick read.  I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
