In Dhungwana 2117 by Baibin Nighthawk and Dominick Fencer, Ian and Dayla, like any other person living in Dhungwana, were used to the restrictive but productive system whose ultimate goal was the common good of the entire community. Dayla, a financial analyst, was shocked when she accidentally came across information suggesting that Dhungwana might be controlled by a group whose end game was contrary to the common-good theory that was endlessly preached. Dhungwana was run by a system that allowed the authorities to monitor and, when necessary, manipulate everything - food, metabolism, stress, sex life, social interactions, memory ... name it and the government was controlling it. Ian and Dayla's suspicions were further aroused when they noticed a couple of strange deaths with explanations that did not add up. When they finally put all the pieces of the puzzle together, they could not believe the kind of future the Federal Communities had planned for Dhungwana, a future that threatened the very survival of the human race. Something had to be done to stop this threat.
Dhungwana 2117 by Baibin Nighthawk and Dominick Fencer is a captivating sci-fi novel that combines a unique and truly fascinating plot and compelling characters to deliver a true sci-fi thriller. I especially loved how Baibin Nighthawk and Dominick Fencer portrayed both the human and nonhuman characters, giving each a unique persona that added something extra to the story. The intriguing setting of the story was another exciting factor of the novel that completely blended in with the whole plot and perfectly fitted in every time a new part of the plot was added. Dhungwana 2117 will make a thrilling read for fans of the sci-fi genre, with a dose of romance and hi-tech action.
