Overview

The future should have been perfect. Microscopic robots known as nans could repair any damage to your body, keep you young by resetting your cellular clocks, and allow you to download upgrades like intelligence, muscle strength, and eyesight. You were supposed to be able to have anything you wanted with a simple thought, to be able to fly without the aid of a machine, to be able to live forever. But when a small group of five terraformers working on Venus return to Earth, they discover that every other human in the solar system has been gruesomely murdered. Now, James Keats and his four companions must discover what happened to the rest of humanity and fight back if they wish to avoid the same, horrifying fate. Welcome to the post-human era.

Meet the Author

Amazon, just like the University of Toronto's Academic Bridging program, gave me the opportunity I needed to prove myself. Because of them, a runaway who had to sleep in a shopping cart at sixteen, a high-school dropout with seemingly no prospects, went on to live in the best city in the world, meet the best woman in the world and marry her, attain two degrees from one of the top forty universities in the world, before achieving his dream of being a full-time author and having one of the best-selling science fiction series in the world.

Not quite what I was expecting, but a fun read. Lately, if I read a book about nanobots, there's lots of science, but this was a space opera. Very good, without some of the elements that ruin the pulp stories for me: woman are equals, no racism & such. It was quite a trip, a pulp SF story using newer technology. Lots of action & suspense. I'll be watching for other books by this author.

Post-Human combines some pretty common sci-fi plot elements, like a megalomaniacal computer system trying to eradicate a small group of survivors (hats off to you, Matrix and Terminator), with some fairly interesting new turns (the grisly method of extermination was decent, and the inter-planetery travels from Earth to Venus and back were a nice touch). It also includes some of the most awkward and groan-inducing dialogue in any piece this side of George Lucas and Mannikin Skywalker. If honest-to-goodness space opera is your thing, you've hit the jackpot. If you're looking for serious sci-fi, it's probably best to look elsewhere.

I had higher expectations for the book, but it unfortunately failed even as pulp entertainment. Simplistic plotting, thinly developed characters, and glib dialogue alongside "science" that is little more than window-dressing on juvenile wish-fulfillment. It doesn't even rise to the level of YA pulp. I bought the series as an e-book bundle, and while the prequel "Sub-Human" was marginally better, I couldn't get through the opening of the third installment and won't be finishing the series.

No thrill, no drama, always floating in one monotonous line...
