1 review for Future’s Orphans Ouroboros Cycle Series, Book 2

  1. Brian

    A gripping cyberpunk with the perfect dose of WTF

    Let me first explain the headline… In my experience, a really good cyberpunk has a certain level of “WTF IS GOING ON HERE?!” quality to it e.g. Neuromancer, Blade Runner, Snow Crash, etc. Too much and it is just out there and too hard to get in to or follow, too little and it comes off as just another sci-fi…. it is the perfect amount of weird that makes this genre unique. Let me tell you, Future’s Orphans definitely hits that mark! The synopsis of the book isn’t wrong, but it certainly doesn’t capture the style and intrigue of the book. As a brief example to limit spoilers, the “drug addictions” is really a societal practice as people are encouraged to use a daily drug patch that assists with the coping of the societal deterioration. That is all i will discuss about it here, but that little tweak alone is enough to give you the unsettling feeling that there is a lot more going on that meets the eye. The story is dark, gritty, and wild. I typically listen to an average of 150 audiobooks a year, so when it comes to plots, I can usually predict the chain of events about to happen, but not so with Future’s Orphans. I honestly had no way of figuring out who was going to be an integral character and who would meet a bloody death within 500 words or less. A.K. Alliss does not disappoint, and takes you for a crazy struggle through a slow collapse of humanity.

    The narration was fun and unique. I haven’t listened to any of Anneliese Rennie’s narrations before, but i’d definitely be interested in hearing more from her. The character voices were all unique and easy to differentiate, and the tone and pacing was spot on.

    As the description of the book says, it is a Mad Max meets Blade Runner (with a bit of genetic modification for good measure). If any of that sounds mildly interesting, then i would encourage you to give this series a try! I look forward to future installments from AK Alliss!
