Primary Anomaly: Fables of Nevertime by Peter Sonntag is the first novel in a new sci-fi series set in a futuristic world where Earth is divided between those who have money and advanced technology and those who have nothing and struggle to survive in a dog-eat-dog world. The central character is a young man called “Three,” who has been enhanced by the scientists of the habitat to become a living, breathing military weapon. Rebels from the outside world steal Three, setting off a war between the elite of the habitat and the mutant rebels and others of the decaying world who, at first, don’t realize what they have in the young man called Three. The story that unfolds is reminiscent of, but not at all a copy of, such movies as Blade Runner, Mad Max, and Elysium.

I enjoyed Primary Anomaly by Peter Sonntag for the most part. The science fiction elements are well thought out with enough real science included that everything seemed plausible. One of the strong points of this book is its colorful cast of characters. It includes heroes, villains and several somewhere in between that were fleshed out well enough to help us readers to care about them and understand their motivations. The story has four characters, three males and one female, who are so well written that I find myself wanting to follow them into the next book in the series to see what happens to them. Overall, Primary Anomaly is an exciting story with a great science fiction setting and well-written characters.
