Science Fiction is the genre of taking chances Rolling the dice Savant by Nik Abnett explores what it means to be human from an entirely new perspective The story revolves around a single deviation in an otherwise ordered existence a single change that threatens to upend the planet's safetyThe Earth's Shield must be maintained at all costs But when one of its protectors is distracted does the center hold Tobe is a creature of habit A highly respected Master at one of Earth's Colleges Tobe is admired by many for his contributions to pure reason and mathematics Not only is he obsessed with problem solving he's also on the spectrum Unable to deal with life's subtleties or remember one moment from the next Tobe's limited world view is shattered one fateful morning during breakfastTobe's Assistant Companion the dutiful Metoo watches Tobe's decline into obsession with growing concern Tobe one of the rare Actives unconsciously uses his synaptic energies to fuel the all encompassing Shield protecting the world from alien attack Given Tobe's mental fragility the slightest change in his mindset can and does have devastating effects on the planet's securityWhere other Assistants have burned out Metoo takes her job seriously and is extremely dedicated to Tobe's peace of mind This speaks strongly to Savant's greatest strength the characters are extremely down to earth and likeable Because the story revolves around a savant Abnett is able to reflect and emphasize the traits of others through Tobe Metoo's kindness is genuine because her reaction to Tobe is genuinely moral The reader can experience the difficulties of caring for someone like Tobe while reading a good science fiction storyThe world building is also very interesting Relying on the novel's fast pace and well placed reveals the Earth of Savant starts off as a mystery to the reader but slowly gains definition as the story progresses While some dedication to the text is reuired to see this come to fruition I found the novel difficult to put down finishing it in under 2 days Savant is never bogged down with meaningless complexities Excellent writing makes this book a page turnerThe alternate Earth in Savant places great value in strict routines regimens and systems From the clothes people wear to the foods they consume virtually everything has a synthetic alternative Irrespective of the Draft system in place society is broken into two distinct groups those that attend Colleges and the Civilians on the outside Those with a keen sense of mathematics and analytical reasoning live in suads and study as Students Elevated positions such as Assistants and Companions exist to serve the Masters often living with themService is an entire organization dedicated to preserving the fragile minds of the Masters Tasked with monitoring the wellbeing of those on a College's campus their Operators watch from behind the scenes in a uniue way Since the world in Savant is practically governed by mental prowess Operators watch multicolor aura like wafers on display monitors These colors form brainwave patterns of their targets This alternative take on surveillance fits the society in the novel flawlesslyOther scientific advances include genetic blood tests to determine likelihood of being of a savant presumably detecting mental disease chip implants with mood adjustments and a rule based futuristic world bent on planetary safety and secrecy It's a world where being born a savant is actually desirable Not all of these elements are germane to the events in the story but they do provide the reader with lots of enjoymentHe had a hundred a thousand hundred thousand ways to decipher numbers and decrypt mathematical symbols Maths was his music and his linguistics and the babbling of his brook About Master Mohammed side character Savant's pacing can make its conclusion feel rushed There were a few things that were left unexplored like why most people can't live without brain chips But it's hard to fault the novel too much since the writing is so good That fast pacing that glosses over some things does work in the novel's favor allowing the author to focus on the elements that matterWithout giving too much of the story away the character growth is like the progression of a caterpillar into a fine golden swallowtail The novel functions as the chrysalis in which great development occurs The concepts and characters were splendidIf you're looking for a fresh take on science fiction give Savant a read I can only hope that other authors see that they can use something other than heroes and antiheroes to tell their tales Sometimes the best story is about a heartfelt journey and Savant does this human journey very well 45 This book was received from the publisher for a fair and honest review

Ted in his wellbeing Earth security’s paramount concern is the preservation of the Shield As Metoo strives to prevent Tobe’s masters from undermining his fragile euilibrium the global danger escalates The Shield must be maintained at all costs. There were some definite issues with this book which meant I enjoyed it but found it to be a problem too Despite being sci fi and set in a futurist Earth it is sexist as hell using a lot of 20thCentury gender stereotypes Some of these come out in how female characters are used some of them are out right stated On the other hand there are a number of female characters who are excellent and uite varied Secondly and uite crucially was the depiction of neurodivergent people As you may expect from the title a large part of the plot and setting revolves around certain characteristics which are associated with autism and found in people with autism and other neurodivergent people At times this is relying on a lot of stereotypes and creates a very flat view of neurodivergence It also has some very troubling ideas abut how neurodivergence is treated and what characteristics are valued as well as what it takes to create something whole and functional I'm not ualified to go in to it in depth but I would to read a review from somebody with autism and working in that field Some of this is also tied up in the gender issue and gendered views of autistic characteristicsFrom a literary perspective I also found the ending to be not what I had hoped The writing was building up beautifully but the story just tailed off and was dissatisfying and at odds with the level of detail and care found i the rest of the story It didn't feel completeThat being said I gave the book 4 stars Because the writing itself the plot and large parts of the setting were wonderful I found the pacing to be superb and captivating the careful and precise descriptions matched the pace and the mood of the story perfectly And though the language was restrained and the description clinical it wasn't without emotion or care which meant that we got a real sense of who the characters were as they developed with the story The setting unfolded along side the plot each detail giving you insight in to what was going on and leaving you wanting to know It was thoroughly enjoyable to readWhich is why that ending through me off a little

Savant author Nik AbneHis mind can save the world if she can save him from the human raceThe Shield is Earth's only defence Rendering the planet invisible from space it keeps humanity safe from alien invasion The Actives maintain the shield  no one is sure how  but?. This is a tricky interesting book I'm glad I read itYou are dumped into a world uite different to ours with little explanation I ended up reading the book description a few times to understand the starting position a bit better Basically the Earth has some sort of super important shield around it to prevent it being seen by others we do not find out who It's powered by extraordinarily clever people whose abstract thinking on mathematics and maybe other subjects too I wasn't sure makes them into 'Actives' They are monitored by a security support group called Service They live in colleges around the world and each Active has students and assistantsI'd call Metoo the main character She is an assistant who looks after Tobe an Active who has some behaviours that might fall on the autistic spectrum She has cared for him for years and knows exactly how to respond to his needs One day something changes and he starts acting oddly outside his normal behaviour at any rate which makes Service think the shield around the planet is going to fail imminently Everyone panics Lots of people get monitored and interviewed The endAt first I didn't know what was going on but kept reading with blind faith that I would eventually figure it all out The worldbuilding is vague I suspect it is incredibly solid in the author's mind but the book is so focused in on the characters that it doesn't go out of its way to explain the world So you never find out too much about linopro or eggpro and are instead left to guess why 'pro' items are used instead of the real thing This may or may not matter to youTobe appears to be wrestling with a probability math problem and this is what seems to send his brain patterns into a tailspin that threatens the world However the real cause of his issues which you discover for sure in the final pages of the book are uite easily guessed early on and it was slightly frustrating that none of the characters seemed to figure this out Sure they are all chosen for their jobs because they have particular types of personalities and maybe not enough of them are inuisitive but it was frustrating neverthelessAt the end the operatives looking into Tobe's mind figure some stuff out about Metoo in particular that seemed to come rather out of nowhere I wasn't sure whether I'd missed some plot or if it had just been too subtle to me or was never there in the first place view spoiler Deciding that she was 'The Mother of all things' and calling her an Empath as if it was a known thing in the story when actually it was never mentioned before seemed odd The operatives were already aware of her and I wasn't too sure how Maybe I just read too uickly I'm not sure Similarly if it was falling in love that started all this why did sharing his mathematics cause problems in other students It did right hide spoiler
