A Review by Undiscovered Tomes

Stefan Bolz’s The Fourth Sage Makes Us Ask “Why”

 Is it science fiction? 
 
Or maybe fantasy? 
 
Perhaps it’s a blend of both? 

Nope. Definitely sci-fi. Though it did seem like a genre blend for quite some time. After all, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

Ok, ok… that Arthur C. Clarke statement doesn’t quite fit, but it’s one of my favorites, so I’m using it anyway.

Why doesn’t it fit? What in the world am I going on about now? Well… just keep reading!

The Fourth Sage is the first installment of the sci-fi Circularity Saga, written by Stefan Bolz, who, by the way, has a spectacular author page. So be sure to click on the link in that last sentence!
So what’s it about?In a world where every move a person makes is watched, every word is guarded, and every independent action is punished, Aries Egan is an anomaly. She has discovered how to steal one hour of freedom every night, evading the cameras that lurk everywhere.

But freedom comes with a price, and one mistake can mean re-education and pain, as Aries discovers. Forced to flee, knowing that her life as she knows it is gone, she finds herself on a quest to topple the Corporation and bring freedom to others, as well.

And did I mention that one of the main characters is a hawk? Keep reading here.
