Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

**Young Adult Winner of the 2014 LYRA contest**

On one side, a dark giant: a ruthless corporation, controlling everyone via a highly developed system of artificial intelligence. Every behavior is analyzed. Every outcome is predicted. Nothing is left to chance. On the other side, the losing side, the sole hope for freedom from slavery lies in the raw and unpredictable intuition of a fifteen-year-old girl.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A thrilling dystopian epic that competes with some of the best YA out there. 18 septembre 2014

In a world becoming oversaturated with dystopian YA tales all vying for the hard-earned money of beleaguered parents and desperate to grab the attention of movie producers to become the Next Big Thing, it’s easy to become cynical about the genre. It’s become tired and formulaic and other than a few mainstream successes like The Hunger Games and Divergent (which quite frankly to me were tired and formulaic also, but I’m not a teen so what do I know?) there has been little new to the table of late.
Stefan Bolz’s The Fourth Sage has an interesting take on the classic dystopian theme, where people are now living in super structures, enormous self-contained high-rises controlled by a ruthless corporation. Aries Egan, a repressed fifteen year-old girl “steals” an hour each night by hacking into the mainframe and creating a camera loop, exploring the air ducts where she actually works during the day. She makes a discovery that will change her life forever and sets in motion a chain of events that force her to make a decision to either continue with her mundane everyday life or to search for the truth about her existence, her past and her future.
It would be easy to point out the obvious influences here, but I don’t think there’s a need to. Bolz has created a unique world, injecting a fresh vision into a tired genre. The world-building is of an epic scale based in a huge infrastructure which has been meticulously constructed and has an unnerving way of becoming even bigger as new areas are discovered by Aries and her friends.
The story unfolds nicely, gradually building pace and developing the main characters. Interestingly, Aries’ character is probably the slowest to develop, but as the narrative progresses it’s clear that her treatment at the hands of her “employers” is a contributing factor here, and when she does finally face her situation she becomes a far more interesting person.
Thankfully Bolz decides not to cash in on the current trend of introducing overly complicated relationships or John Green style tragic romances. This is sci-fi damn it, and while there are relationships forming as the story progresses they rightfully take a back seat to, well – not getting eviscerated by thousands of deadly androids and this is totally fine by me. There is far too much action to be enjoyed here for that sort of thing.
There are lots of surprises along the way and plenty of twists to keep the reader’s anticipation peaked. The ending builds to a quite surprising reveal which is a total game-changer and forges a solid structure for the next instalment.
I have to give a mention to the creative and editing team involved here. As a self-published work it looks and reads as professionally as anything I have seen from a major publisher and it’s a credit to the author’s hard work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Refreshing. Epic but human-scale. 2 avril 2015
Par W. Reichard - Publié sur

A girl trapped in a maze: A story as old as time. Only this time, the maze has three (or more) dimensions, and only a number of very clever mechanisms will allow her to travel through and perhaps, if all goes well, out of the trap.

The best part, for me, out of many great things, was the overall perspective--the way the story connects in flashing links and unexpected joints that all reinforce the arc of Aries, the protagonist. All of the characters, including an extraordinary winged helper, feel like extensions of her. All are rendered with great delicacy and affection for her situation and that of the many other oppressed people herein. This gives the book a great humanist feel, something very refreshing in a time when action seems to trump all and we forget what people are risking their lives for. It's _nice_. Bolz makes me think of L'Engle in that he deals with some very serious subjects but in a way that's gentle without being condescending. This is a book that isn't jaded in any way. Exactly the kind of book I'd hope smart teens were reading (but which their parents will enjoy plenty as well).

There's a lot of action here--a lot. It didn't surprise me to read that Bolz likes Jackson's LOTR, because this feels packed the way those do--well structured, but also somewhat overflowing. But on the other hand, the constant revelations are a joy, each invention more awe-inspiring than the last, and it's all in service of the story. We've become use to bite-size tales. This is a full meal, and the structure of the story shows glimpses of a truly vast universe of possible stories. One of the joys of reading this is the sense that you're at the beginning of a truly epic journey.

Read this one--based on this, Bolz is destined for big things.

I just loved this. It felt so real as if this could potentially happen. Aries and Born of Night are wonderful characters who grew and grew into their roles. I definitely want to read book two in this story. Well done Stefan Bolz! I highly recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a story that can make you look at things in a different way.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A riveting read! 28 juin 2014

I began reading the Fourth Sage by Stefan Bolz on the train down to NYC. I was instantly pulled into the story about Ariel Egan and her brave challenge of the status quo - living in a world where individuality is stripped away and there is no hope. She challenged the corporation that controls them, which sets in motion a series of events that become ever more intense with deeper repercussions to her and to everyone else. On the way home, I continued reading and then when I arrived at my destination, I was at an exciting part where I just could not stop, so I stayed in the parking lot for an additional hour before I drove home. Needless to say, I stayed up late and finished the book. Basically, I couldn't stop reading because the action just keeps building, and I had to know what would happen next.

I loved The Fourth Sage. Read it in less than 24 hours. Looking forward immensely to the next instalments in this world of which apparently there will be 3 more books. It has a great female protagonist 14 year old Aries and is set in an orphanage in a dystopean world where people are controlled to an extreme degree and are under constant surveillance with no chance of free speech and no possibility of getting close enough to form friendships.
I would recommend it to ages 10 and up to adult. I'm going to give it to daughter next and I'll add her comments to my review when she is done.Thank you Stefan Bolz for a great read.
