"In his fictional debut, Keith Hayden presents a future that does not feel so far-fetched given today’s exponential growth of technology and political tribalism. Set in a post capitalist world, Cereus & Limnic, is a tale seen through the eyes of a gifted teenager, war torn veterans, insurgents, and leaders of the established Cereus society. Taking place in northern California in the 2060s, the government is being ran by Cereus whose economy is fueled through bartering and people’s talent rather than the individual pursuit of wealth. Unsatisfied with the implementation, the rival organization, Limnic, takes a violent approach in order to accelerate the spread of this economic model to the rest of the world. The novel begins when Cereus headquarter leadership cuts off their support to the rest of the organization which brings it into disarray and gives Limnic the opportunity to fill in the power vacuum. This event is what sets off all the characters to their journeys. A philosophical story that explores transhumanism, sacrifice, big data, and consciousness this book will take the reader through a entertaining ride and leave them thinking about society’s direction today." - Kindle Customer
"This book is basically a sci-fi novel of what happens when everything goes wrong. Interesting how do much pop culture and even current events (Covid) are woven in. Keith is a great writer and he gives you the whole story in this book. He fulfills the promise of the characters to the reader and doesn't leave you with a cliff hanger for his next book. Thanks for the interesting story Keith!" - Carl C
"There is a familiarity in the humanness of characters, and also something just out of reach within this very good book. Maybe you'll find yourself rooting for the protagonists; maybe you'll find yourself identifying with the 'bad guy' roles but either way this story will take you through a range of human emotions, and a diversity of people, thought and perspective that is perhaps more universal than we'd like to believe. This author doesn't follow the typical bland algorithms for your standard novel.... a thought-provoking and immersive read... you'll surely come away with something new. Highly recommend." - J. Ho
"If you love sci-fi then this book is for you! The thought that went into this futuristic, sci-fi masterpiece will not disappoint. Not only is Keith a wonderful writer, and he is also a great mentor. He is well versed in giving marketing ideas, writing advice, book coaching, and social media strategy." - JF Hilley, Author
