The Otherhood is the story of technology allowed to run amuck. A man with the innocuous name of Robert Jones, the head of Trycor, created something called a terramyd, a refuge from the collapsing society outside its borders. The problem was that only a select few were allowed entrance and, to assure that was the case, anyone seeking entrance without shielding would be killed.

Into this society Vic Jones comes to being in the body of Viceroy Jones smack in the middle of the tyrannical Trycor shareholder society, and he tries desperately to escape the futility of this life. To add insult to injury, he learns that his own brother, a genetic programming master, is the creator of the terramyd. Vic is also mysteriously connected to the artificial entity of the myd source. Enter the clone of his past love, Jewel, to help him battle both destiny and passion to overcome evil. Along the way, there is also a civil war, body-swapping, and century-hopping.

The Otherhood is very imaginative and inventive. Zammana creates a brand new world at once incredible and believable. He does this by not going overboard on the otherworldly language and by interspersing logical facts throughout. The plot and pacing are good and easy to follow. The dialogue is true to life. If you like science fiction, you will like this book.
