The Affinities
Adam Fisk takes a suite of tests to see if he qualifies for any of the Affinities - social groups based on new analytical technologies that assess your genetic, behavioral, and brain-mapping characteristics to identify the people with whom you can best cooperate. He finds that he's a match for Tau. Problems in all areas of his life begin to sort themselves out as he becomes part of a global network of people dedicated to helping one another. But as the different Affinities put their new powers to the test, they chip away at the power of all the old institutions of the world. Then the Affinities begin to go to war with one another. What happens next will change Adam and his world.
