Publisher's Summary

Mankind is undergoing rebirth, the new arrivals closely watched by the Selected: the transgenic beings created by the Moirai. The new communities thrive with the aliens' support and peace and security reign on Eridu, as the planet Earth is known by the Moirai and in the galaxy.
But peace and security of the cradle are suddenly shattered by acts of sabotage set to disrupt the fragile balance of the fledgling communities.
From the coldest climes to the deepest ocean floors, a cosmic conspiracy full of betrayal and fear is being hatched with the hope of pushing the world perilously close to the brink of self-destruction.
It is up to Dan Amenta to journey through dark and deadly alleys - even into the depths of the planet - to unlock the shadowy logic of alien minds.

Rebirth of the Human Race!

Another great story by Massimo Marino! This is the second story in Daimones Trilogy and it's another 5 star story. I won't be giving away any details about this story, I'm sorry for that but you MUST read/listen to this story to learn what an incredible story it truly is and I'm afraid of giving details away. This story starts with action right from the start, you feel a sense of loss, the fight for survival, and many twists and turns throughout the story. I highly recommend this story to everyone!

Jeff Hays is brilliant with his performance of Once Humans. He has become my favorite male narrator now. He is extremely gifted and his talent shows in every story you hear Jeff narrate. Trust me when i mention how great Jeff is, if you don't believe me about how good this narrator is then just listen to this story or another one that he's narrated. His female voices and accents are superb. Jeff breaths life into this story and I feel as if I'm there watching the story as it plays out. I have no trouble identifying each character throughout this story. A must listen to story! Overall, another 5 star rating!

Good book for scifi fans

I received a free audiobook for an honest review.

I listened to the first book in the Daimones trilogy and found it intriguing so I was looking forward to listening to Once Humans to see how things turned out in this new world run by the Selected and the Moîrai.

Unfortunately, for the most part, I was disappointed (not in the author but in the Selected and the remaining humans). I didn’t like how the first book ended and I was hoping the humans would rebel in the second book. Instead, they allowed themselves to be directed by the Moîrai almost completely. There were times when Dan stood up to them and he was respected for that but the other Selected just rolled over and then complained when the Moîrai weren’t around.

I am not a die-hard science fiction fan but I think die-hard fans would get more out of this book because there are detailed descriptions of some of the aliens’ technology.

Although this isn’t my favorite book I’ve read this year, I think it is well written and that it’s more of a personal preference. I believe that science fiction fans would really like it.
