The Beam: Season Five

From the bestselling authors of the Invasion and Yesterday’s Gone series comes the fifth and final season of The Beam: a disturbing exploration into the possible future of our hyperconnected world. This chilling, intricately plotted series is set in a futuristic dystopia where technological advancements have prompted questions about what it means to be sentient, alive, and human.

The unthinkable has happened. The Beam is down. Chaos reigns.

A data anomaly has shown up in the East, something strange in a place where it shouldn’t exist, and something is seeking out a handful of people spread across the globe. Can Gillian Rhea find answers at the abandoned research station at Nickel Basin?

Noah West is desperate to regain power and get The Beam back online, but no one dreamed he’d ever go this far. Will he unleash his worst creation upon the remains of the NAU to bring it back under his control, no matter the damage?

Is there anyone left that can stop him?

Platt and Truant deliver deep political intrigue, incisive social commentary, and a generous helping of big philosophical themes through engaging, multifaceted characters and rich world building. If you enjoyed Altered Carbon and The Fifth Element, you’ll feel right at home in the world of The Beam.
