You are the next step in human evolution.
At first, Logan Ramsay isn t sure if anything s different. He just feels a little . . . sharper. Better able to concentrate. Better at multitasking. Reading a bit faster, memorizing better, needing less sleep.
But before long, he can t deny it: Something s happening to his brain. To his body. He s starting to see the world, and those around him even those he loves most in whole new ways.
The truth is, Logan s genome has been hacked. And there s a reason he s been targeted for this upgrade. A reason that goes back decades to the darkest part of his past, and a horrific family legacy.
Worse still, what s happening to him is just the first step in a much larger plan, one that will inflict the same changes on humanity at large at a terrifying cost.
Because of his new abilities, Logan s the one person in the world capable of stopping what s been set in motion. But to have a chance at winning this war, he ll have to become something other than himself. Maybe even something other than human.
And even as he s fighting, he can t help wondering: what if humanity s only hope for a future really does lie in engineering our own evolution?
Intimate in scale yet epic in scope, Upgrade is an intricately plotted, lightning-fast tale that charts one man s thrilling transformation, even as it asks us to ponder the limits of our humanity and our boundless potential.
