Publisher's Summary

The world is broken. The powerful machines that once ruled over land and sky fought and died, leaving humanity in a primitive age of swords and monsters. But that was long ago, and only legends of the Schism remain.
Enoch has never been frightened by these tales. He sees things differently from the other youth in Rewn's Fork, and that makes him an outcast. Where others see crops and weather and flocks of sheep, Enoch sees numbers and patterns.
When he accidentally awakens a powerful artificial intelligence, he discovers the truth behind his peculiarity - Enoch is an Etherwalker, the last in a long line of powerful technopaths who can control machines with their minds. Without knowing it, he has triggered the ancient Hunt, and now legendary monsters are hungry for his blood and bent on his extinction. They know he has seen the truth behind the broken world, and, if he survives, he may have the power to shatter it...or to make it whole again.

Absolutely Excellent Fantasy in a Sci-Fi Setting

Where does Etherwalker rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Out of the countless audiobooks I've listened to, this is definitely one of the best.

What other book might you compare Etherwalker to and why?

The wonderful thing about Etherwalker is that it is so unlike many sci-fi or fantasy books. It has the characters story structure of many sword and sorcery stories, and a post-apocalyptic sci-fi setting.

What does Kirby Heyborne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I don't know if anything can top a reader's imagination in terms of experiencing a story; but Kirby does an excellent job lending different voices to all of the characters and he has an excellent sense of timing, knowing when to pause to let moments have the impact they need. He's probably the best narrator I've heard since Stephen Fry's reading of Harry Potter.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Enoch's autism keeps him from easily understanding others, so it's really a joy whenever Enoch is able to connect to or begin to understand the characters around him.

Any additional comments?

It's so rare to find new spins on either the sci-fi or fantasy genres that this book has been genuinely refreshing. Great settings, loveable characters, and a good story; what more could I possibly ask for?
