  The term “Singularity” in my book is comparable to the use of this term by the physics community. Just as we find it hard to see beyond the event horizon of a black hole, we also find it difficult to see beyond the event horizon of the historical Singularity. The writer’s style is unique, which allows readers to feel all the difficulties and inner emotions that Caesar is feeling. The book makes you ponder about the world we currently live in, and wonder if we are driven and controlled by technology. “Traitor” is the second novel in the “Singularity” series, which was released in the year
