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 his-story 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?
My Review: 
Synarchy: The Awakening has many layers and has both a complex plot and three dimensional characters. The reader has the privilege of following around the Terenzio family- a family that somewhat reminds me of mobsters...the mafia. Unfortunately for this family, some internal rivalries have turned traitorous.

This is an extremely detailed, predictable novel with tons of action and mystery. Don't pick it up if you're looking for a light, quick read. Though I wouldn't reread this and it isn't one of my favorite novels, it is extremely unique and I have not read anything like it before. I would primarily recommend this to SciFi junkies.
