For Amazon best-selling author Devin Hanson, the question is not how to achieve immortality, the question is what happens when we do?
Throughout the entirety of history, humanity has fought against sickness, old age, frailty, even death itself hoping for eternal life. Countless legends and stories share the same hunt: extend our lifetimes beyond the impossibly brief moment we have. Hanson imagines life beyond those legends and stories - a solar system where humanity has discovered the secret to immortal life, at an extreme cost. What horrors await a society that rests an economy on the most scarce resource man has ever known - eternal life?
Join The December Protocol in following three characters uniquely affected by the most amazing technological change humanity has ever experienced. Min, an ageless Earth-born marshal older than the very Martian colonies he fights to enforce a brittle and bleak law upon. Angeline, a young girl terrified by the social and scientific necessities prompted by the promise of eternal life. Marcus, a man brought to his knees by that emperor of all maladies, cancer, willing to pay the ultimate price for perfect health through immortality.
The December Protocol rockets the listener into the late 24th century and raises thrilling questions about how far mankind would go to preserve the most precious gift we've ever received: immortality.

What if you could live forever? What would you be willing to turn a blind eye to? Who would you sacrifice to have immortality? December Protocol is a probing story that demonstrates what could happen to society when their number 1 resource for survival is threatened with extinction as well as just how far humankind will go to live forever.
The main characters – Min, Angelina, and Marcus demonstrate the deadliness of immortality and the moral/ethical results of acting upon those desires. Devin Hanson, the author, challenges his readers to examine these age-old questions through a thrilling, action-packed sci-fi novel guaranteed to leave you struggling to determine who is the most evil – the one seeking immortality due to a fatal disease or the one providing justice but also requires the main ingredient to maintain his immortality?
This is definitely a book that provokes thought long after the book ends while also being entertaining through the edge-of-your-seat action and intrigue. The storyline flows smoothly and the characters are well defined. The dialog is realistic as are the situations. One cannot help but become immersed in the story as it unfolds.
Rhett Samuel Price, the narrator, performed this audiobook wonderfully! Changing voices for each character is a monumental feat and one he pulls off well. I enjoyed hearing Price read this book!
