Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

A science-fiction thriller.

The year is 2091. With accelerated warming and global population out of control, the survival of humanity hangs in the balance. On the brink of extinction, science delivers one last hope. Human hibernation.

Jennifer Logan is a tough cop in the newly formed Duality Division, tasked with enforcing hibernation. When she uncovers a memory, hidden deep within her mind, her belief in the system she protects is shattered. Together with an unlikely partner, and convinced that her past holds the secret to mankind’s future, she embarks on a dangerous search for the truth, one that rapidly turns into a struggle for her life. Pursued by the very people she once trusted, Logan must risk everything for answers to the mystery that unfolds. As her world unravels and the layers of deceit are revealed, she is forced to question everything and use all of her skills to survive. In The Whisper of Stars, author Nick Jones delivers a breathtaking, sinister vision of the future, where nothing is what it seems. He shows us that some secrets cannot stay buried, no matter how deep.

The Whisper of Stars is the first book in the Hibernation Saga. A fast-paced, futuristic thriller starring a tough, female protagonist. It features conspiracy theories, romance and intrigue and is set in a dystopian world, making it an ideal read for any fans of the sci-fi genre and also suitable for a young adult audience.

An interesting concept!
I really enjoyed this story and found it well written. Although I did find it difficult to get into at first.
I recommend downloading it.

Just about everything you could want, Mr.Jones has delivered:

Editing (that seemingly Achilles heel of the self-published work) is as good as a traditionally published book. Extremely engaging plot line. The characters are well fleshed out and their dialogue natural, unforced and believable.

I am very much looking forward to your next book, Mr. Jones.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good but needed more character development 26 mars 2015
Par K.S. - Publié sur

Overall, a solid, enjoyable story, with good world-building and a very interesting idea. I loved the mixture of advanced technology, overpopulation and climate change. The story was fast-paced and action-packed and I liked the two main characters.

I do wish that there had been more depth to the secondary characters, especially the main villains. I wanted to understand them better. In fact, I would have enjoyed getting to know Jennifer and Nathan better too. This is a relatively short novel with a lot of POVs and a lot of action, so there isn't a lot of time spent on character development. I wish we'd spent a bit more time on the characters so I had grown to care about them more. I probably won't read the sequel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great "Star"t to a sci-fi series! @badwordplay 13 octobre 2014
Par Owen Robinson - Publié sur

Do you know what there is a vast lacking of in my personal reading library? Great science fiction stories with female heroes. That's probably not true of the sci-fi genre in general, but in my personal collection, it was definitely sparse. Reading through the description, and some reviews, it definitely jumped out at me for a couple of reasons: Female protagonist, future sci-fi, and crime drama rolled into one! It's like reading three or four books at once! By reading this, the author is actually saving me time, so that's a plus.

IN 2091, one of the biggest problems that society has to deal with is the ridiculous rate of population growth that is threatening human's way of life. Things get so bad, in fact, that the government has to mandate "hibernation", since there is not enough food and other resources for everyone. And since hibernation is government mandated, no one wants to do it, so it needs to be enforced. Enter Jennifer Logan, a police office with the Duality Division, whose job it is to enforce these laws. But all is not what it seems when it comes to Jennifer, and she soon learns that the future of mankind depends on her.

When science fiction is effective in story-telling, it portrays a real-life problem in a way that fits the universe that is created. The over-population of the Earth is definitely a problem that the human race will have to address in the future, and are already experiencing some of the side effects of this problem, such as global warming, and limited resources. This book portrays these ideas in a very real way, and presents the plot and characters fantastically. Jennifer Logan is a very compelling main character, and I am very excited that this is the first story in a planned series. I am glad we will get more from this author in the future, and can't wait to see what we get next!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Mind tricks! 6 septembre 2014
Par Ian J. Miller - Publié sur

This appears to be a first effort, and it is a good one. It is best described as lying somewhere between science fiction and fantasy (where depends on your definitions) and is set somewhere near the end of the 21st century. Human population has expanded intolerably, lifetimes are almost doubled, the planet is under pressure, and hence society has taken a novel way out: hibernation. Everyone volunteers to get an implanted chip and report at periodic intervals to be put to sleep, to wake up some time later so that the waking population at any time is at reasonable levels. Of course, criminals do not do this, as they fear they may not wake. There is also an illegal way out: swapping bodies. How that works is unclear because while one party benefits, the other party is not mentioned in the book. And there needs to be policing of this policy, and one such policewoman is Jennifer Logan. Jennifer's father had a secret that he buried before he died; Jennifer finds it: an object called a histeridae, and it has remarkable properties, including mind control. Unfortunately, the powers that be know she has found it, and they want it, meanwhile Jennifer finds all is not well with officialdom. Jennifer becomes hunted.

The story now becomes a basic chase/escape story coupled with a quest of Jennifer's to find out what is going on. There is the odd "hole" in the story, but if you overlook those you have a genuinely imaginative and exciting story, well-written, and with one of the better long action sequences that I have seen. The book is the first in a series, but it has a very clean ending, and can be considered self-contained, but with an incentive to wait for the next one. Definitely recommended.

I enjoyed the story but I found myself wondering about certain things, plus there were a few minor grammatical errors. The story takes place many years into the future yet fossil fuels are still very much in use in spite of the book's agenda in promoting the idea of global warming. At the end of the book while the two main characters were in Russia in winter, it is so cold their breath freezes and falls to the ground, yet there is a waterfall with water still running over it. Just a couple of inconsistencies which distracted. Clean those up and we've got a pretty good little story.
