Ten children are stolen from their parents while at a summer camp and genetically altered. They have become part human and part something else, each with extraordinary capabilities. These new abilities cause them to become freaks in a society that is being altered by the geneticist who made them – Oscar Zoroaster, the self proclaimed Wizard of Oz. His technological prowess is far beyond standard science and he deploys it on an unsuspecting populace causing worldwide chaos. This evil genius wants to reshape the world using a computer virus called EPITOMY and will stop at nothing to achieve his goals. Johnny, a young boy and his father find themselves thrust into this world of espionage and technology that stretch their imaginations to the limit. Johnny meets Tinker, one of the ten children, and together they forge ahead in the hope of survival. Unknown to anyone, Oscar has created a subprogram within the virus, the Oz Immortality Sequence. In the event of death – reanimation takes effect. Can it be stopped, or has Oz unleashed a technological mammoth that will bring the world to its knees?
Once again an awesome read by author Solitaire Parke. I was especially thrilled that some of the story takes place in my hometown of Phoenix, AZ. As in his previous books, Mr. Parke creates a storyline that borders on the edge of reality. The characters in his books are namesakes of the original Oz series. If you like The Wizard Of Oz or any of the Oz series books, I highly recommend and strongly encourage you to pick up this book. The ending will throw you for a loop! - B.H.
