Really great read! Highly recommend! Loved the development of the story and characters. The story was complex and super engaging. – Amazon Review
The far future. Generations after vast nuclear wars have viciously dragged the whole Earth to the brink of death, the human species is still recovering. The first and most advanced society since, the Caradrium, uses a silent democracy as its unique and novel method of leadership. A system that exalts the precepts of anonymity, intent, and choice in the hopes of rebuilding humanity from the ashes and avoiding a repeat catastrophe.
Yet a single obscure murder threatens to undermine this lone beacon of stability. Only an unassuming citizen, Taryn Steno, a laid-off widowed mother of two, fresh to the leadership ranks, may have a chance to stop it. Yet first she must contest with an enigmatic counterpart, known as Aurelius, to decide how much truth behind this mysterious murder she is willing to uncover. For every new detail brings not only more danger, but also draws Taryn closer to a revelation that could shake the core of humanity’s last hope of a better civilization.
Read the stand-alone, super novel debut of L.P Magnus: a distinctive and wholly unique science-fiction plot, interweaving themes of the human condition, technology, philosophy, virtual reality, politics, AI, and power.
Perfect for fans of Blade-runner, Children of Men, Ex Machina, Gattaca, Star Trek TNG/DS9, Twilight Zone, Isaac Asimov and all the other stories inspiring debate on what humanity is, regardless of its form.

“Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the rest” -Winston Churchill.
But can a new form of democracy fix the weaknesses of our current systems? That question defines the action and suspense in The Human Entanglement, by L.P. Magnus, a thought-provoking sci-fi thriller set a century after the collapse of human civilization. A collapse caused by corrupt, failed governments (democratic and otherwise). As with the best science fiction, T.H.E. takes us to an alternative setting in time, technology, and culture for the main purpose of looking back to see ourselves and our time more clearly. And for rollicking, escapist fun of course! Both of which it succeeds at in spades.
A refreshing break from the “space-war” scenarios common in sci-fi writing, T.H.E. takes a more cerebral approach ala Isaac Asimov. With plenty of plot twists and a narrative flow that keeps pulling the reader along, The Human Entanglement provides a great literary vacation from our present woes. Editorial Review -Dr R. Leckie
