The world becomes a far more uncertain place, as blogger Mason McCann suffers the consequences of sharing knowledge the world isn't ready for. Journalist Joanna Hubble learns to see society from a very different angle, covering stories without the benefit her name, but without any consequences for what she reveals. Media manipulator Manicule sparks radicalism and finds himself stoking too large a flame. 

Governor Michael Smith flies up the political ladder, throwing his powerful family to the press in the process. Energy tycoon Niki Jenks finds herself and her empire in the crosshairs, and is forced to pivot on a massive scale. Technologist and cult-leader, Xerxes, discovers dissent within his ranks as he prepares to push humanity one giant step toward the Singularity. 

And orchestrating from behind the scenes, the hacker collective Opus influences important events through everyday people.

This is the second book in the Real Powers series.
