In the future, the dead walk the streets—Resurrection, Inc. found a prof­itable way to do it. A micro­proces­sor brain, syn­thetic heart, arti­fi­cial blood, and a fresh corpse can return as a Ser­vant for any­one with the price. Trained to obey any com­mand, Ser­vants have no minds of their own, no mem­o­ries of their past lives.

Then came Danal. He was mur­dered, a sac­ri­fice from the ever-growing cult of neo-Satanists who sought heaven in the depths of hell. But as a Ser­vant, Danal began to remem­ber. He learned who had killed him, who he was, and what Res­ur­rec­tion, Inc. had in mind for the human race.
I can’t recall where I heard about this book; maybe another review or on a list of books com­ing out, but I was not dis­ap­pointed with this book.
The detail put into devel­op­ing not only the story at the point the reader picks up, but also the back story of Res­ur­rec­tion, Inc, the neo-Satanists, and the ser­vants is impres­sive.  While the story pro­gresses quickly, you’re not rushed through events, and yet it doesn’t drag when reveal­ing the back story.
The char­ac­ters all have depth and those gray areas which make them much more human.  Some of the char­ac­ters I didn’t really under­stand the need for, or why there was so much focus on them dur­ing cer­tain points.  A good exam­ple is Super­vi­sor in the lab as she seems to play an impor­tant role in the down­fall of cer­tain peo­ple, but then even though her dis­ap­pear­ance is explained later on, she just drops from the story.  She is cer­tainly a minor char­ac­ter over­all, but as you read you get the feel­ing she was sup­posed to play a big­ger part but cut dur­ing the devel­op­ment process.
Filled with com­pelling twists, this book is cer­tainly never bor­ing.  The final twist I didn’t come up with until Ander­son revealed them.  That is fan­tas­tic writ­ing in my book.  Most twists I’ve fig­ured out before the char­ac­ters and to have missed such an impor­tant link (Ander­son did leave lit­tle hints along the way) so that I was as sur­prised as the char­ac­ters is amazing.
If you are a fan of sci-fi and dystopian tales, I highly rec­om­mend this book.
