When the Children Fight Back by Barry Kirwan Blog Tour!


When the Children Fight Back

In the near future, Artificial Intelligences will be smarter than us. Is that a good thing?

"Really entertaining, a brilliant balance between action and emotion."

"A wonderful story. So much imagination!"

A mega-AI known as the Eye is intent on purifying the galaxy, by annihilating all 'organics'. Humanity, itself already decimated after an attack by the Eye, must join eleven other species in the final battle at Orion's Gate to stop their nemesis. Led by Sally, humans have a secret weapon: Ares, the last AI from a dead alien race. But can they really trust Ares? And as the battle rages in the heart of a star nursery nebula, Sally realises that one of the other species is about to betray them all...

The thrilling climax to the Children of the Eye series...

Author Bio – I was born in Farnborough and grew up watching the Red Arrow jet fighters paint the sky at airshows. I didn't get into writing until years later when I arrived in Paris, where I penned The Eden Paradox series (four books) over a period of ten years. My SF influences were Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Frank Herbert, and Orson Scott Card, but also David Brin who writes about smart aliens. Iain Banks and Alistair Reynolds remain major influences, as well as Neal Asher, Peter F Hamilton and Jack McDevitt. My main SF premise is that if we do ever meet aliens, they'll probably be far more intelligent than we are, and with very different values and ideas of how the galaxy works. As a psychologist by training, that interests me in terms of how to think outside our own (human) frame of reference. This current series is exploring Artificial Intelligences (AIs), and how they could either be our nemesis or saviour.

  1. Many thanks for showcasing my latest book, Kathleen! I also see you've had back surgery last year - I know how that feels (I'm 2 discs lighter), good luck with that, take it easy!
