In the year 2055, humanity almost lost everything....
The rise of the Artificial Intelligence in 2055, known as The Lost Year, resulted in massive casualties on a global scale. Planes crashed, elevators malfunctioned, missiles launched and brought the human race to its knees. Humanity was able to stop the A.I. after a year of tragedy and devastation and has been rebuilding ever since.
Forty years later the Cryptocoin Rush brought with it a new society head. The Corporations deemed the government useless and have replaced them entirely, along with the change they sectioned off the cities. Each district has a Corporation that owns and runs the district, collecting all the taxes on the ones who live and work there. This is the story of one boy in the dystopian city of Tribon.
Sixteen-year-old Kilix is starting his freshman year in a new town. That means new friends, new teachers and a new whole life. The often reclusive Kilix struggles to make friends at his new school and instead makes enemies with the wrong group of kids. Struggling to cope with his mother's illness and keep his enemies at bay, Kilix is met with a conundrum.
In a world torn apart by destruction, there is hope when we look for it.

MANKIND AGAINST THE MACHINES
I enjoyed listening to Kilix because it brought back thoughts of when I was in High School. And I found the use of computers in the future to be interesting. Particularly the twist when we find out that the word was taken over by them.
Joshua Bennington did an excellent job of doing the different voices. I liked the voice of Loren. Half the book is in her voice and half is in Kilix's voice but there are many other characters in the book and they all have different voices. Big job!! Talented reader!
I gave this book a 5 star rating because one I loved it and two the author and narrator kept the action moving.it was nice to listen to.
COMING OF AGE IN THE FUTURE
"Chronicles of Kilix" rates among the top audio books I have heard. The story is entertaining and the narrator brings the characters to life. Hard to turn off!
Kilix was the main character and the story line follows him more than Loren. But both characters were my favorites. The story is about a young man moving into a new school and making new friends. Loren takes a liking to him right away but she is not sure about her feelings or even why she has them for Kilix.. And the whole thing takes place in the future where the computers are the dominate activity..
Joshua' Bennington's performance was out standing. I enjoyed hearing his narration because it gave the characters life and I was able to almost picture them in my minds eye, every time they spoke. Good job!
I highly recommend this audio book. It was well written and performed by the narrator. It is going to be a winner!!
