Book Description

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 alien political intrigue and intergalactic war of survival.

Lydia Manx, Piker Press: It's hard to put down Mr. Kirwan's book, but at the same time you don't want to race ahead but savor the complexities of personalities and the well crafted story line. There are new worlds and new enemies entwined with the main characters nearly as closely as their lovers. I can't wait for the next journey along side the Eden pathway!

SF author Gary Gibson: A science fiction thriller with terrific images and revelations.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Captivating Continuation of the Eden Series April 21, 2012
By MarkD
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Eden's Trial is an exciting ride into an expanded universe, the foundation of which is established in The Eden Paradox. Kirwan strikes a great balance of keeping the story riveting while also delving deeper into character development. Eden's Trial would work well as a standalone read but like any trilogy it work's better to start at the beginning, so I strongly suggest reading The Eden Paradox first. I really enjoyed both books. The only problem with finishing Trial is Now I have to wait for the final book to find out what happens!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for Eden's Revenge June 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I "bought" this book when it came out on the Kindle Deal's email as a free download. I read the first chapter, and was captivated by the story telling, so I wanted to read the story from the beginning. I went back to Amazon and bought the first book of the Trilogy, The Eden Paradox (The Eden Trilogy), and started over from the beginning. I couldn't put it down. But now I have to wait 6 more months until the third book of the Trilogy comes out at the end of the year.

A great trilogy by a new author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book 2 even better than Book 1! April 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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. Now on to download the third book to see how it all ends. I'm sad to be nearing the end of this exciting mind blowing saga.

4.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative March 24, 2013
By Linda S
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this book, though at times I couldn't even picture the things being described. The imagination of what might be out in space is amazing. I am ready to read the next book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, Fantastical, Sci-Fi March 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a really complex Sci-Fi story as human suvivors flee to an unknown planet after Earth has been destroyed. The suvivors flee in alien spacecrafts that they barely know how to pilot. The planet they flee to ends up being much more than they can see at the beginning. The characters are really good as the story develops, and there is never a dull moment as the survivors discover other alien races and try to stay alive and avoid the aliens that want them eliminated.

I really loved the story, it was very entertaining and much more deep than anything I've ever read in this genre.

Continuation of the story. Keeps your nose in the book all the time so to speak. Makes you realise how small we really could be.

More About the Author

I was born in Farnborough, England, where I used to watch the fast-jet Red Arrows practice low-flying stunts. I fell in love first with science, then science fiction, reading the greats such as Asimov and Clarke. I then studied Psychology and majored in Human Reliability Assessment, which predicts accidents and how to avoid them, and ever since I've applied this approach to nuclear plants, offshore oil & gas platforms, and air traffic safety. But my passion for the past few years is writing science fiction, with a psychological angle, trying to figure out where we (humanity) are headed, and how different aliens could be, not just in looks, but in the way they think and communicate. This is what I explore in my Eden Paradox Series (The Eden Paradox, Eden's Trial, Eden's Revenge and Eden's Endgame), and also in my short stories, which are available free on my website I hope to get people excited by the ideas, worlds and characters I've created, and reflect about it all afterwards.
