The year is 2088 and the world is a very different place. After a global economic collapse, corporations have taken the place of governments. The United States of America is now America, Inc. and the seat of power is NYC. Everyone has a job, as long as they follow the rules. War, hunger and poverty have become the stuff of legends. The price of this âutopiaâ is that every aspect of life is controlled by the Corporation. There is a segment of society, however, that lives off the grid and they are determined to take back control of their lives by whatever means necessary. When these âterroristsâ launch an attack on NYC, the Corporation realizes that all that they have built and accomplished will be undone. Can this disruptive force be stopped or will the world return to the chaos it once knew?

America, Inc. by Mikael Carlson is Book 1 of the Black Swan Saga. I was amazed by how Carlson has created a novel that could very well predict the future we are actually headed toward in America. This is a very different dystopian novel than what we are used to. Instead of a world wrecked by a disaster, such as nuclear war or plague, the disaster in America, Inc. was an economic one. I have already purchased books 2 and 3 and can't wait to read them. I would give this book 4/5 stars.
