In this sequel to Post-Human, humanity will be forced to face a future more advanced than it could have imagined if it wants to survive. Nineteen months have passed since the A.I. turned against humanity and was subsequently destroyed. In the meantime, James Keats has turned over the A.I.'s powers to a non-intelligent, easily controlled operating system.
He and Thel have left the planet and spent six months vacationing on Venus, which has been newly terraformed without the consent or knowledge of the Governing Council. The A.I. has been deleted, but the message it sent out into the abyss of space in search of a companion has been answered. An alien force dwarfing the Earth is on its way to find out why the A.I. has stopped communicating. Keats and company can only assume its intentions will be hostile when it finds out the truth. Only one thing is for sure: Nothing will ever be the same again. Welcome to the Trans-Human era. Welcome to the singularity.
"A wonderful follow-up to Post Human that is just as enjoyable." (Matt J. Drumm, Amazon.com user)
"Better than the first one!" (Paul Hurley, Amazon.com user)

Never Trust An Artificial Intelligence! NEVER!
I would recommend this audiobook to anyone. The story line is easy to grasp and Ray Chase keeps the narration exciting. The Post-Human series takes a look at what man and machine can become.
Other than the human/machine connection and evolution of man, I particularly liked the fact that I wasn't left hanging as situations played out.
Old-Timer... his personality and verbal dueling with James is so down to earth (pun intended).
Yes... and I did. I put on my ear buds and kept it with me throughout the day as I worked.
Even though I've read the Kindle edition of the books, I decided to purchase the audio version of the "Post-Human" series. I rarely listen to audiobooks. I'm ADD and it's very easy for me to get distracted from the narration. I didn't have that problem with Ray Chase's narration. His voice was soothing and didn't grate; he was very easy to follow.
