'Written in Fire,' A Conversation with Marcus Sakey
What if people with these enhanced abilities wanted to turn them against the rest of us normal folks? How do we keep that from happening? What are we willing to do to stop or prevent them from taking over? Along the way, Cooper also encounters Erik Epstein, a Brilliant who manipulated the stock market to create the largest fortune in the world, and used his billions to buy up a large chunk of Wyoming and create what he hoped would be a Utopian refuge for other Brilliants, a technological marvel where they can live their lives free of oppression from outsiders. However, at the end of the second book, A Better World , this safe haven called the New Canaan Holdfast is attacked by the US military, and Epstein retaliates, setting up what seems to be an inevitable war between Normals and Brilliants. I had really been looking forward to the final book, Written in Fire , ever since I finished the other two.

Written in Fire, the conclusion to the wonderful Brilliance trilogy, just came out, and Marcus answered a few of my questions about it, and more! Nick Cooper is one of my favorite characters. I love writing Cooper. In the beginning of the trilogy, Cooper, who is himself a brilliant, works for an agency that monitors and executes antisocial brilliants. Now what he wants more than anything is just to make a safer, better world for his children. What kind of research have you done for the series, and what is your writing process like? Research is one of the best parts of the job.
