    This is an enjoyable character driven survival of humanity mini sci-fi adventure, a bit of a bible story with a technological twist to it. A good read.

    A fast paced, interesting sci-fi twist on The Old Testament stories in Genesis. Like a fractured fairy tale, the author has kept the basis of the stories true to form but retold them in an inventive and unique way. His use of the original biblical names gives you some foreshadowing of what's to come but how he brings it about and develops it is exciting and fresh. His characters are well developed and easily draw you in. You feel sympathy for Adam, wanting to show his sons he loves them all but unsure how to do so. He is so taxed with humanities survival and the demands of leadership that he has forgotten how to be just a Dad. Your heart also breaks for Cain. His lack of self esteem, nativity and longing for love leads him on a disastrous road and causes him to fall prey to Lilith's manipulation. I think the character I liked best was Seth. His gentleness, strength and loyalty makes him very likeable and you can not help but root for his survival and reconnection with his love. The narrator of the audiobook fit the characters well and did a great job of both male and female voices. This story has action, excitement, some great twists and a unique take on an old tale. I received the audiobook from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Really enjoyable story based on the biblical characters of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Seth and Lilith, etc...but DON'T let that put you off, please!This is a sort of retelling of mankind's start in sci-fi/space opera style, with twists and turns you genuinely won't see coming. Well fleshed out characters who are totally believable. The reader will identify with some of the characters, and empathise/sympathise with others. I loved Lilith, and could fully understand why she was that particular way.Chaney's writing is very smooth and easy to read. The story is a good one and there's no rubbish hanging around to take your attention away. You start to read and before you know where you are, you are halfway through. Food? Who cares about eating? I need to know how this ends!This is the first story I have read by the author, and it won't be the last. I was lucky enough to win this book in a competition that JN Chaney was running. All opinions are my own and this is an honest review.
