Publisher's Summary

One hundred and seventy years from now, aliens decimate Earth. A relative handful of humans survive, hidden in deep subterranean enclaves that offer some protection from surface radiation. Although the main attack is now seven years in the past, one alien ship remains in orbit, and the conquerors are not content merely to let humanity lick its wounds...

Within the book one is faced with two worlds

Kyrathaba Rising is a post-apocalyptic world in the 2200’s and which aliens, robots and humans reside. Discovering unstableness and treachery, the humans and androids break into two fractions. One small group of four travels into a parallel world that is virtual in a sense and filled with magic, kings, orcs and such. The other fraction, a much larger group explores going deeper into the underground system they have been forced to live in since the war of human vs alien seven years prior.

Within the book one is faced with two worlds, both fighting for the same right to life and freedom from alien domination. The aliens remain above in a space ship, waiting, patiently.

I found Kyrathaba Rising to be a book one cannot listen to in bits and pieces, rather one must devote longer periods of time because it is very technical in the first 30 minutes. A hardcore science novel, it is very richly devoted to details that creates a clear understanding of what is going on and establishes character development.

It was interesting to experience the mash-up of hardcore science and fantasy, creating a connection where one would not normally see it. The plot development and character development were well executed.

The narrator, Christine Padovan did a good job of narrating. If one listened closely one could distinguish the humans from the androids because the androids spoke with the ending of their words being drawn out.

Production was good as there were no issues and no distracting background noises.

I would highly recommend this to anyone who is a hardcore science fan.

Bravo, when can we have the next instalment?

Our beautiful planet has been devastated and irradiated by huge tentacled, soul drinking extra-terrestrials, but for those humans who survived by burying themselves deep in the heart of the earth, things are just about to get a whole lot worse.

The beginning of this epic Sci-fi/Fantasy left me wondering whether I was going to be able to get in to the book (I don’t think it helped that I was listening to it on audio.) The myriad of technical descriptives, complex concepts, along with a host of characters and situations meant listening hard so as not to get lost.

But oh boy was it worth it, I was quickly submersed in the mastery of Mr Millers tale weaving, the more I listened the more intrigued I became. The characters were developed skilfully, in detail and I soon identified with each of them, the twists and turns the reader/listener is subjected too are well worth waiting for. As the narrative continued everything became clear and the addictive, credible story transports you literally to another realm.

I enjoyed Christine’s narration, although having listed to some of her other work this sounded computerised in places and took some time to get used to.

Be prepared to astounded and amazed, I was and I loved the acknowledgement to the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence.

Bravo Mr Miller, when can we have the next instalment?
