MAJORITY — Torth Book One

Science Fiction subgenre:
Dark Space Opera in the vein of Vernor Vinge, Scott Sigler, or Red Rising. It’s also Sci-Fi Progression Fantasy.
Short Summary:
In MAJORITY, the rulers of the galaxy cannot unplug from social media. The only way Thomas can rescue his enslaved friends is to trick his crowd-pleasing mentor–plus her audience of thirty trillion fans.
He might just conquer the galactic empire while he’s at it.
Readers Say:
“The plot is crazy, hitting you with twists and turns that make perfect sense in hindsight. Great story beats, powerful character development, and a lot of set up that pays off in unexpected ways. If I could give this series more than five stars I totally would.”  
“I’ve read a lot of stories on this site, and I can say this is probably the first of its kind. The first of its merits is how unique it is–while I’ve seen the themes used elsewhere, they mesh together into an epic sci-fi thriller that I was certainly not expecting at the beginning.”  
“This is not a mindless power fantasy slog. What makes this story shine is the world building and characters.”
“This story is one of the most enjoyable novels I’ve ever read! It blend sci-fi and a fantasy, with advanced technology and a unique magic system, that build off each other in way that feels natural.”
