First contact did not go well. Survivors are fleeing Earth, into a hostile galaxy where alien intelligence and weaponry rule. Can a deserted planet offer refuge? Or will the genetically engineered Alicians finish the job started on Eden? While Blake fends off attacks, Micah seeks allies, but his plan backfires, and humanity finds itself on trial for its very right to exist. This stunning sequel to The Eden Paradox launches us into political intrigue and an intergalactic war of survival…
Lightning fast. New worlds and new enemies entwined with the main characters nearly as closely as their lovers - Lydia Manx, Piker Press
A great sequel to the first book, greatly expanding on the stage already set in the Eden Paradox. The story builds pace throughout to the point where you just don't want to put it down. Now waiting for the release of the next in the series! Jason, Manchester, UK
When humanity's survivors escape earth's devastation, it's out of the frying pan and into the solar flare... What I love about the second part of this trilogy is that whereas The Eden Paradox focuses on Earth and a quest to 'nearby' Eden, in this book the scale explodes to include - in a way that Iain Banks also does very well - multifareous alien races and civilisations with ancient scores to settle, making humanity appear very small and frail indeed. Favourite moment: an ancient, and supposedly dormant, enemy starfleet bursting through the skin of the galaxy to unleash hell... Gideon, London..
The second book is even better than the first. You are completely immersed in another world. Can't believe he is a new SF writer. Gerald, Blackpool, UK.
Eden's Trial is an extraordinary, fantastic, erudite, captivating, epical sci/fi action/adventure story par excellence. Filled with incredible alien races, inter galactic travel, genocide, war, intense pacing, nano technology, friendship, miracle cures, cruelty, love found, love lost, advanced civilizations, arachnids, annihilation, evacuation, richly developed characters, and exquisite backdrops. Buckle-up for the ride of your life! Dave H, Oregon
I thought it would be impossible to exceed how much I enjoyed the first installment of the Eden Trilogy. I was wrong! This is my favorite read in years. Dave, Reading, PA
Wonderful story with excellent plot and character development. Author clearly up there with Clarke and Asimov. I can't wait for the third book on the series! Anthony, USA
