      Imagine a world, 150 years from now, without wars, reigned by a single World Government, where global warming is a thing of the past and food comes from machines called replicators.Nice, huh Unfortunately this world is inhabited by 20 billion people, the World Government is corrupt, sunlight hardly reaches the surface any making it cold as hell, and the air is only breathable through filter masks filled with some gel.Not so nice any.Fortunately there is another planet just 2 weeks travel time fr [...]

      In the future, through overuse, over abuse and over population, Earth has become toxic to human life Light years away, exoplanet Exilon 5 is discovered to be a plausible place to relocate humans to Only problem It s already inhabited by another species Solution Force the indigenous population to die, or adapt to the changes necessary to support human life Or, just maybe, they will learn to adapt and hide underground, seeking ways to learn about the invaders Maybe they have grown smarter, powerf [...]

      I decided to buy the book and give it a chance after reading the reviews where it was sold My EReader is full of free books from promotion but this one caught my attention I hadn t read a sci fi in a while so I thought, Why not Although a little bit hard to follow at times when the author moves from one character to another to introduce them I understood that at some point it would fit together It was just hard to remember everything The author did an amazing job with the Indigene Stephen, as I [...]

      I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I loved it.The story is written from several points of view, both on Earth and Exilon 5, and personally I loved these sneak peaks into a not too distant future each character giving their unique flavour and adding to the big picture.The characters were believable, each with their own distinct personality driven by their goals for the future or demons of the past or present.It pleased me that even though halfway into the novel I had [...]

      This was a really good book A great break from all the young adult novels that I have been reading lately It was written well and the book kept me intrigued the whole time I think because I have read George R.R Martin s Song of Ice and Fire series I was able to follow all the different point of views and characters a lot easier All the characters added something different to the story and I loved how it was starting to all tie together towards the end That was done well especially with the many [...]

      I enjoyed the storybut the writing execution wasn t there for me I m interested enough to continue with the trilogy I hope that now that one story is under her belt, Ms Green will develop a bit as a writer I noticed that even as the 1st book progressed the writing got better It was, however, rough for the 1st half of the book There needed to be character development and I felt as if I was missing background info on the story universe There was a lack of description of settingwhat life was like [...]

      Check out my blog to see Reviews of Books and Movies as well as Recipes and DIY projectsI received this book for free in exchange for an honest review Becoming Human the 1st book in the Exilon 5 Trilogy is written by Eliza Green Admittedly I was surprised that this was written by a woman, from the first 1 3 of the book, I had the feeling that it was written by a man Considering that the story is told predominantly through the eyes of men, I must commend Eliza on capturing the essence of man in s [...]

      This book has a lot of different character perspectives I have a general rule, that I will only allow tolerate this kind of thing from George R.R Martin, because he gives me no choice, even if I skip all the chapters starting with Theon, to read all the chapters starting with Tyrion instead Tangent over.So we have, Bill, Stephen, Jenny, Ben, some guy and his parents, a pilot, the guy that has a crush on the pilot, some evil Government Corporate staff, so on, an so forth I have just listed 9 poss [...]

    9. Jenny Clark on said:

      Very interesting and quick paced The POV switches did get slightly annoying at times, but there were not too many of them and they all came together except for the one with the air control guy, whose name I have forgotten after twenty minutes.The second half was much better than the first There are still quite a lot of loose ends, but there are two books so we shall see how they tie up.The corrupt government was nothing really new It was almost another Big Brother is watching plot, but there we [...]

      I won a copy of Becoming Human by Eliza Green when the author guest posted on a blog I read I had never heard of the author but liked her voice in the post and thought the book sounded interesting It s the first of what I understand is a planned trilogy and I think it s very good for a first publishing effort Ms Green is an indie author and I was impressed by the level of professionalism here the cover was beautiful, the copy editing was superb, and I only had a small quibble with the content ed [...]

      I ve been on an urban fantasy kick for a long while now, and I found it refreshing to read something in my friendly old genre Sci fi In the story, the earth is dying, having been overrun and destroyed by humanity The world government has terraformed a new planet and is shuttling people to it slowly This book follows several characters It follows Bill, a high level government official who thinks the natives of the planet killed his wife It follows a few natives, and a few characters back on earth [...]

      Becoming Human The Exilon 5 Trilogy, Book 1 Hard to review this book I think my score would be a 3.5, but I like to support indie authors, so an extra half There s a LOT of exposition Too much, I think There are a million POV characters, to the point I lost track of who was who several times There are so many story threads it s hard to follow, and the entire first 2 3 of the book feels like world building, backstory and in some places, filler And yetThe story is great, many of the characters ar [...]

      Insightful, and intriguing tour of the future After poisoning the Earth, humanity packs up it s societal baggage and takes off for the stars Becoming Human explores the middle history of humanity s future in a grass is always greener in space tale told from two planet s points of view On Earth, characters go about their daily business while living in an ecological crisis On Exilon 5, colonist of a New World Order attempt to make the environment habitable for themselves, while forcing the indige [...]

      This novel cost me an entire day beacuse, like Magnus Magnusson, I started so I finished I had no choice, I simply couldn t tear myself away Terrific tome, brilliant book, spectacular story, call it what you will,I don t care, as long as you follow my advice, and buy it.I suppose it smacks a little of legacy Star Trek, but is not in anyway derivative, and although I d especially recommend the book to Trekkies Trekkers, I see no reason that those who despise the franchise wouldn t love it as well [...]

    15. Caitlin McColl on said:

      I really enjoyed this book A lot And I haven t read pure sci fi in a long time, and so this was great And i m so glad the 2nd book was just released in December, because I can continue the story If you re a sci fi fan, I highly recommend this book

    16. Heather on said:

      I really enjoyed this book I was immediately invested and could not put the book down I ve been reading a lot of after Earth ends books lately and this was one of the engaging ones I can t wait to read the next one

    17. Peg on said:

      The abrupt ending was a bit jarring yes, it s the first in a series, but still I m looking forward to the other books It s an intriguing storyline.

    18. Bee Quite the Novel Idea on said:

      Honestly, this is not a genre I usually read No, correction This is not a genre I usually enjoy But I did I enjoyed this book Surprisingly so So, in this book the earth is dying It s overrun and destroyed by humanity The world government has terraformed a new planet and is slowly bringing people to that planet It has several POV s, both on earth and Exilon 5 the new planet And each character mattered and had their own voice We have Bill, a high level government official who doesn t like the nati [...]

    19. June on said:

      This is an indie book published in the science fiction dystopian genre It is not quite the usual dystopian ya fare we have been treated recently There are true scientific facts woven into the plot which makes the story plausible In the far future, humans have managed to pollute the Earth to the point where life on Earth is fated for destruction The only hope is space exploration which has found a suitable exo planet called Exilon 5 The planet is Terra formed but there appears to be an indigenous [...]

      I picked this book up because of the twitter stir it was creating, and I have to say I m not sorry I did In fact I liked it so much that I bought the paper copy after first downloading the kindle version In a way, the story reminded me a bit of Mary Doria Russell s The Sparrow , which I also loved very much Both books deal with misconceptions, the otherness of Alien societies, and how to deal with differences Who is human and who is MORE human I m looking forward to the next installment

    21. Chanda Barrick on said:

      I really enjoyed this book There was a major plot twist at the end that was a total surprise but explained Stephen s reaction to information he obtained earlier in the story I would definitely like to know what happens next The only complaint I had about the story is the number of characters While I understand the point in telling the story from the voice of various characters, I honestly had a hard time keeping up with who was who and who did what.Overall though, I enjoyed reading this book

    22. Karen on said:

      The premise and world building of this book are very solid, and the characters compelling I d liken it to a sci fi Game of Thrones a futuristic world told from many different points of view As a reader, I would have liked to see of some characters Stephen and Laura and perhaps less of some others But I think it offers a wonderful build up to what comes next in the series, and I look forward to the next installment

    23. Nicky on said:

      I usually hesitate to try new authors and instead stick with the ones I know but as this was offered to read and review through read it and reap and it sounded good I gave it a go.I really enjoyed it Great story, characters you really like and a good pace no boring or dragged out chapters.The only disappointment was that it ended Can t wait to read the next one and would highly recommend this book If you like futuristic sci fi novels you will enjoy this one.

    24. Vanessa on said:

      Very intriguing plot but I found the story poorly developed and superficial, the characters shallow and dull I was never invested in the story or the characters which is a shame because it s a really good sci fi plot.

    25. Peter on said:

      No spoilers here I was a little thrown off during the character development as the story jumped around to different main characters and locations, but it came nicely together and I enjoyed the suspense and mystery of it all It s hard to resist a good conspiracy.

    26. Jessica McDermitt on said:

      Intriguing storyline and professional, clean inside with no issues with the writing But the ending, I felt, lacked tension started great and then kind of flatlined It seems to be a common problem

    27. Khristina on said:

      Slow at first, but good It took me a while to get into the story, but once I did it got very interesting very quickly

    28. Lauren on said:

      Some years ago humanity began settling a new planet so that they could leave the polluted shell that was Earth and once again feel the sun on their skin and breath without respirators They terraformed their new home, built cities, and started shipping in colonists and animals The planet is a perfect place for humanity to start again, or would be if not for one minor issue The planet s natives, the Indigenes, aren t happy with their aggressive new neighbors and want their home back from the being [...]
