Kingdom: Tiber City Blues By Anderson O’Donnell Genre: Dystopian Sci-Fi Age category: Adult Release Date: February 2019
Blurb: In a secret laboratory hidden under the desert, a covert bioengineering project—codename “Exodus”—has discovered the gene responsible for the human soul. Somewhere in the neon sprawl outside the nation’s collapsing economic core, a group of renegade monks are on the verge of uncovering a secret that has eluded mankind for centuries. In a glittering tower high above the urban decay, an ascendant U.S. Senator is found dead–an apparent, yet inexplicable, suicide. And in the streets below, a young couple races through an ultra-modern metropolis on the verge of a violent revolution….closing in on the terrible truth behind Exodus–and one man’s dark vision for the future of mankind.

Dick that is in equal measures suspenseful, gripping, darkly funny and philosophically challenging.” (starred review and named a Top Indie Book of the Year) – Kirkus Reviews “There simply aren’t enough stars to communicate the impressiveness of O’Donnell’s work here. He has taken religion, science, politics, theory and philosophy and blended them all together to create what is easily one of the most important books to come out this year.” – Pavarti K. Tyler, Fighting Monkey Press Kingdom is a thrill-a-minute, bio-punk myth that manages to wrestle with the most pressing issues of the new millennium. O’Donnell has crafted a kickass novel of tomorrow night, when the big party gets raided by the monsters we’ve been building for the last half-century. Hip and hellish, wild and weird, Tiber City is the dystopian megalopolis into which we will all soon move–whether we know it or not. – Jack O’Connell, Author of Word Made Flesh and Box Nine

This was a very unique read, I really liked the darker dystopian aspects the author used.
The world building and descriptions were incredible, it was a real world that could unfortunately come true. I will say I didn’t really feel anything about the characters.
Overall this is a good book but it seemed rushed.
