Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

A 90,000 word novel. It has been more than two hundred years since the destruction of galactic civilization by the invasion of the Macros. Althea Ram, exile from a culture which survived the apocalypse, has been searching for answers amongst the lost worlds of the Consortia. Her past failures, pyrrhic victories and dwindling resources have lead her to plan a desperate transit to Elysium, a world which could provide her everything she needs. But the probability of getting there on the first try is very low. And she has no way of telling how dangerous her destination might be.

Because on any lost world, Althea must face dangers; hostile environments, the technologies once beneficial, now warped by Macro control, the decendants of human survivors - turned violent and suspicious by the Macro threat, and even herself, driven by needs she barely controls, or understands.

The Undeniable Labyrinth is the first novel of The Promethead.

What is The Promethead?

This is the story of Althea Ram, exile from the remains of a vast galactic civilization, driven to unravel the truth of what caused the apocalypse that destroyed it - the wonders and horrors of her universe.
It is a science-fiction oddyssey with ideas and concepts drawn from the breadth of the SF continuum, combining elements familiar to science fiction fans including artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, interstellar politics, genetics, cybernetics and psionics woven into one complete narrative epic.

L'autore

A little background information on the author of The Promethead, A.A. (Double A) Roi Born in the United States to Canadian parents, he has developed a somewhat sardonic view of both nations, their relationship with each other, as well as the rest of the world. He developed in interest in sci-f media and literature, writing and art, from an early age as well as an keen interest in the future (where we all are, after all, going to spend the rest of our lives). With a desire to learn, but little interest in being taught, he has started and been involved in numerous businesses involving cosmetics, IT, the internet industry, as well as audio-visual tech. He currently lives in the far south, is engaged in several writing projects in the genres of science fiction, fantasy and horror, and shares his home with a handful of cats. His current other works include The science fiction satire series Dispatches From The Intergalactic and the fantasy series Black Cloak White Art

4.0 su 5 stelle Enjoyable 2 agosto 2011
Di Sixiron - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Enjoyable read. A fresh story line that gave nothing away, and didn't paint itself into a corner. I liked this universe and look forward to finding out more about how it tics. All in all I enjoyed it a lot. I probably rated it one star better because it sucked me in and left me wanting more. Characters stayed in character, although characters don't seem to have much background in this first book.

As far as negatives, I'm not one to get bent out of shape over editing or lack of it, but it was noticeable. Not for improper word usage, but missing words and switched words. The brain fills in missing words quite well, but when 2 words arrive out of order, everything grinds to a halt to rectify the nonsense. The pages and pages of stream of consciousness with Macros was over done, shorten it up, I just skipped over it as it added little, I get it... Conflicted characters are tricky, over do the angst and self pity too much, and you wont like them and don't care about them or what happens to them.

Im not sure where this is going, and Im not sure whats motivating our heroes, but I'll buy the next one to find out.

For a 1st book, this is a fine effort. Good luck..

4.0 su 5 stelle I agree completely with sixiron 17 marzo 2014
Di brujaja - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Ordinarily I am not at all a lazy review writer; concise, yes, but I relished the chance to put my two cents in regarding a book that only has two other reviews so far... most of the time, my words of erudition reviewing books are lost in a swamp of adoring fans.

However, in reading the other two reviews, I was a bit surprised to find my own surmisal stated almost exactly by sixirons's review.

The book seemed to start a bit coolly for me; it took a short time to become really involved with the plot. However before long I was clicking to turn pages in that cramped-in-my-chair-late-into-the-night, one-more-page-before-I-go-get-a-snack kind of obsessive way that I do when a book has me in its grip.

I too thought the stream of consciousness parts were somewhat too long. Mind you, I have used that device myself in an SF short story I wrote, and it's a good expressionist kind of tool, but long streams of consciousness are probably only really effective when they're your own. Wouldn't it be cool if somehow an interactive book form could personalize them for the reader?

But anyway, I can really relate to the description of the beauty of the code, and I love the ending, and I feel certain that I will buy the next book in this series. The ending of this book shimmers with potential.

(Also, I like the cover, good art.)

3.0 su 5 stelle There was a lot I liked about this story 25 settembre 2015

There was a lot I liked about this story. It could have used a great deal more proofing, but the story was engaging, and that's what counts. The passage of connecting with the Macro could have been, should have been, edited to a third to a half of the length published.

I thought that the twists on measurements of time and distance were clever, and a good way to suggest "otherness" to the jaded sci-fi reader. I think the story would have drawn me along better with some deeper glimpses of Althea's endgame. As it stood, we know she wanted to get to some particular place, but we have no idea where or why. Being a little cryptic leaves readers wanting more. Being too cryptic leaves readers wondering why they should bother.
