More About the Author

I grew up on a diet of Star Trek and Dr. Who, fell in love with Asimov's Foundation and Clarke's Rama, got blown away by David Brin's fiercely-alien aliens and Iain Banks spectacular mindships, admired the edginess of Neal Asher's Polity characters and the darkness of Orson Scott Card's Ender and Bean, am continually impressed by Jack McDevitt's pace and story-telling, and Alastair Reynolds and Peter Hamilton's superb space opera choreography. I like reading and writing fast-paced, intelligent scifi where the characters leave their footprints in space, and the plot is nothing short of galactic.

But while writing is fun, getting published is tough and has been a hard road. Still, I have four books out there now, and I'm already working on the next two. I love science fiction, and will never stop loving it, because a world where we can't dream and explore is not one I want to live in.

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!

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.

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.

Thank heavens for Kindle, otherwise I would have had to wait for the publication of the sequel to Barry Kirwan's utterly gripping The Eden Paradox

No doubt this 2nd book in the trilogy would work as a stand-alone read, but why rob yourself of the entertainment factor and compelling portrayal of the key players in the earlier volume? Whilst many sequels disappoint, this one builds character enrichment. All our favourites are developed Sandy (I didn't warm to her initial judgemental temperament), Micah (pathetic geek or understated hero-in-the-making?), Blake, Zack, Pierre, Kat, Antonia, Vince (do we like him or not?), Louise (vile women could she possibly have ANY redeeming features), Jennifer, Dimitri, Rashid and the dreadful self-obsessed megalomaniac chain-smoking-man (shades of X Files here) Shakirvasta.

Surely the Alicians, with their Q-Roth alliance and enhanced genetic patterning are invincible, or should I say `inlouisable'? However, we meet a new race, the Osirions (can't check spelling here, having finished the book my husband has commandeered my Kindle so he can read it), the complexities of the Hohash are progressed and we start to comprehend the bigger picture of the galactic hierarchy. A plethora of personal agendas concealed underneath the declared political manifestos, just like real life.

To say much more would give too much away, suffice to say, read it yourself. Oh yes, it's only out on Kindle, you might have to invest in one ...

While I did not love "Eden's Trial" as much as I did "The Eden Paradox" it was still well worth the purchase. As with the first book, suspense and action were masterfully balanced throughout a well-crafted plot. Yet, despite the intriguing widening of scope that takes place, I couldn't help but feel this novel stood as a place holder between a masterful opening and, I'm guessing, exciting finale. Other than the twist in plot referenced above, the story pretty much unfolded conceptually how you would expect and seems intent on tying up some loose ends from book one and laying the stage for book three. Perhaps it is my love for epic middle chapters that could stand alone as classic tales in their own right, e.g., "The Empire Strikes Back" or "The Two Towers", that colors my perception of Eden's Trial. At any rate, don't let me discourage you from Kirwan's work. Definitely read "The Eden Paradox" and without any reservation, I would recommend continuing the tale with "Eden's Trial".

Eden's Trial

This book continues the excellent start the The Eden Paradox began. This second book in the trilogy surges forward at break neck speed and continues the battles within its own ranks and that of the extraterrestrials.

I am not sure who are worse. The next gen humans or the aliens. Death continues to elude Louise a second time and her slide into the dark side of human nature continues unabated.

The number of heroes and heroines continue to grow and fall by the wayside but for some reason it all comes together in my head and I am not left floundering as to who did what, to whom and when.

The ending here was a little predicable but I was left with an anticipation for the final installment.

Please don't leave me in suspense too long. I need closure. Peter Eerden.
