MADE IN BIONIA is an ambitious, mind-blowing and totally addictive techno-thriller that will change your perception of science fiction. Open up your mind and get ready for a very stormy adventure!

Why does Rasa A, the world’s most secret society, want William Carrot dead? And who is William Carrot? He has to figure this out before it’s too late.

In a world very much like ours, the Third Great War is over and the ocean is dying. Scientists in the country of Bionia invent a new technology to stop an ecological catastrophe. Can William get it before it is seized and destroyed by terrorists? With love, betrayal and marine virology standing in his way, it will be hard to call, especially when his own life is at stake.

A novel in the best traditions of science fiction, ‘Made In Bionia’ has it all: love, mystery, cutting edge science and alternate history.

Your journey begins in Bionia.

Made in Bionia is a fast-paced techno-thriller focusing on William Carrot, a highly-enjoyable main character, who must protect the world from an ecological catastrophe while Rasa A., the world’s most secret society, wants him dead. The author combines the very real threat of oceans dying with terrorism, ecological warfare, betrayal, and even a hint of love.

The writing is great, and the plot flows as easily as the words, as if it took no effort at all to write this book (although I’m certain it took great effort!). The setting is unique yet familiar, mixing original elements with more familiar tropes. There’s tons of science though, and sometimes the narrative slows down a little to explain what’s going on. I didn’t mind, but other readers might.

I admired the light, quirky writing, and how such writing can make sense of a plot as complex as this one, and subject matter as complicated to understand as an ecological catastrophe. However, it works, and I’m impressed.

I look forward to reading more of William Carrot’s adventure, because with a rather abrupt ending, I’m left waiting for more.
