    Publisher's Review

    Naomi Kinder's saving the solar system from a black hole incursion makes her the most-celebrated hero of 2097, but a capsule from 2313, teeming with new technologies and warning of the future nanobot invasion of the Earth, challenges Naomi, her Russian-Belgium lover Leo, and her friend Bonnie to travel more than 200 years forward in time to prevent humanity's destruction.

    Meanwhile on a future Earth, mankind battles for its very survival while forces on Luna and Mars consider "sanitizing" the solar system. It will take a miracle to save the planet.

    Rescuing the Future picks up where the novelette Godspeed Inc.leaves off. It, however, is a fully developed novel of over 111,000 words with an expanded cast of characters, including the elite and genetically enhanced female warriors of the future, the UN Medusan Marines. Not only must Naomi, Leo, and Bonnie struggle with the technologies and people of the future, but with a new official language called Modern Interstellar, a UN-imposed language that is a mixture of Esperanto, Ido, and English.

    It¿s the year 2097, about a month after Naomi and Leo were given

    It’s the year 2097, about a month after Naomi and Leo were given a hero’s welcome for saving the solar system from a black hole. But scarcely has the dust begun to settle on their space suits when they are called back to Godspeed Headquarters in Ares City, Mars.

    Their boss, Bonnie, and her army of researchers have discovered just what was in the capsule that nearly wiped the two adventurers out on their way home. Within its sheath are the following: a message in a strange mélange of languages; plans for a ship that will traverse both space and time; and bits and pieces of a human body.

    The researchers have parsed out the message, and it is seemingly incredible: the capsule is the remains of one Peter Romero, who was trying to get back to Earth in time to stop a catastrophe–in the year 2313.

    He and genetically-created Medusans had been sent to a planet known as X14 to see to a problem with researchers dying off. And unfortunately the problem accompanies them home.

    Now what Naomi, Leo, and Bonnie must do is get on the ship that was created with the plans from the capsule, and take Peter and the capsule back to the proper year. But a rift in the fabric of time gets him there much later than expected.

    What they find, what happens, and their interactions with each other, make for a fascinating read. For the past, the present, and the future all find themselves together, with a very surprising alliance formed–from our planetary system and beyond.



    This was one of the best-thought-out books I have read in a long time. There is so much going on, at different levels, with different characters, and in entirely different centuries, that a less-gifted author would have lost the reader with what could have been a very confusing story line. Mr. Miskell has fleshed out his characters, their relationships, and the various scenarios ingeniously, through the use of short chapters that alternate between scenes. This way, the book reads like a verbal three-ring circus, but one that is easily followed. The story line, heavily using the science of nanotechnology, does not use a lot of futuristic-sounding terms. It is a story that is actually very believable, given what science has come up with in the past several generations.

    The author has other books up his sleeve, which is good, because our heroes are still waiting to save the future, not only for our own galaxy, but for a faraway one as well.

    I read, and loved, Vincent Miskell's Godspeed Inc: A Naomi Kinde

    I read, and loved, Vincent Miskell's Godspeed Inc: A Naomi Kinder Adventure. I was excited to find another of his books, Rescuing the Future. As with Godspeed, Miskell kept me turning pages wanting more! You will love the characters and the very interesting plot. It has something for everyone: love, war, humor... Enough said, give it read, you won't be disappointed! Dr. M.

    Rescuing the Future was a nice diversion. Good storyline and intriguing plot twists fit my requirements for brain candy. I will take a look at the next story for sure.
