What to expect

Upgrade is the new mind-bending thriller from Blake Crouch, author of the bestselling Dark Matter and Recursion.

‘You are the next step in human evolution . . .’

What if you were capable of more?

Your concentration was better, you could multitask quicker, read faster, memorize more, sleep deeper.

For Logan Ramsay, it’s happening. He’s beginning to see the world around him, even those he loves the most, in whole new ways.

He knows that it’s not natural, that his genes have been hacked. He has been targeted for an upgrade.

Logan’s family legacy is one he has been trying to escape for decades and it has left him vulnerable to attack. But with a terrifying plan in place to replicate his upgrade throughout the world’s population, he may be the only person capable of stopping what has already been set in motion.

To win this war against humanity Logan will now have to become something other than himself . . .

Intricately plotted and epic in scope, Upgrade asks us to ponder the limits of our humanity – and our boundless potential. Are you ready for the impossible?

Critics Review

  • From the first page of Upgrade, it’s clear you’re in the hands of a master storyteller; Blake Crouch leads you on a rollercoaster ride in this highly original science-fiction adventure thriller, by turns mysterious, fascinating and deeply moving – exploring the very nature of what it means to be human. Spellbinding.

    Alex Michaelides, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Patient and The Maidens
  • Amazingly gripping and totally immersive. Brilliant (near-future) world-building and impeccable plot. You don’t so much sympathize with the main character as live inside his skin.

    Diana Gabaldon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Outlander series 
  • Blake Crouch doesn’t pull any punches in this taut and evocative examination of what humanity really is—and how it fails us. Upgrade is a hugely entertaining and emotionally resonant thriller that you’ll be thinking about long after you turn the last page.

    Veronica Roth, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Chosen Ones and Divergent
  • Blake Crouch has invented his own brand of page-turner – fearlessly genre-bending, consistently surprising, and determined to explode the boundaries of what a thriller can be
