Because Rome's Revolution and The Ark Lords are both part of the Rome's Revolution series, I'll write a joint review about them.

I have to confess that I'm bit hard to please when it comes to science fiction, because I tend to read only "good stuff" (a.k.a. quality science fiction) and entertaining science fiction, but I'm always willing to try new books, because there are lots of good books out there. Because Michael Brachman's books seemed to be entertaining books, I was eager to get my hands on them.

I was positively surprised by Michael Brachman's Rome's Revolution and The Ark Lords, because the author has interesting ideas and he writes about the characters and happenings in an entertaining way. There were a couple of rough spots (I'll write more about them later), but I enjoyed the story. In my opinion both books are good and enjoyable entertainment for adult readers.

I think it's good to explain certain terms before I write more about Rome's Revolution and The Ark Lords, so here's information about the terms:

- The Vuduri are humans of the future. They have 24 chromosomes and they're mind-connected to the Overmind.

- The Essessoni are humans from the 21st century. The Vuduri hold the Essessoni responsible for the near extinction of the human race.

- The Erklirte or The Ark Lords were ruthless and cruel people who reintroduced slavery and tried to rule the Earth.

- The mandasurte are people who are mind-deaf to the Vuduri and can't connect to the Overmind.

- The Overmind is the collective consciousness of the Vuduri.

And here's a bit of information about the main characters:

- Rei Bierak is an engineer who was one of the frozen passengers aboard Ark II which was launched from Earth.

This novel is almost three books in one. A page-turner in every sense of the word. I could not put it down even when I needed to. The author has truly created a brave, new universe. My favorite character was MINIMCOM but the heroes, Rei and Rome, showed true growth and resourcefulness when dealing with the escalating crises. The science was crisp, even heavy-duty but did not get in the way of the plot. I would love to see this made into a movie but it would really be three movies. I highly recommend it.

A great science fiction book, which holds the reader's attention with both the science and the emotional intrigue of a romantic, unique relationship. The author creates a very imaginative and creative universe and society of peoples, as the backdrop of intrigue.
I especially loved experiencing the bio psychosocial, maturational development of the main characters. I loved the computers, which had character, but still remained computers. One of the real treasures of the book was "the baby". I fell in love with the baby and his relationship with his mother. The book was definitely mutltifaceted on so many different levels. There was never a dull or slow moment. I heartily recommend this book as a very good read.

As a human being, Rei Bierak is not the sharpest tool in the shed. People, especially women, and their motivations seem a mystery to him. But he is one damned fine engineer. In fact, he is sort of an archetype of engineers: when it comes to making things work, he is endlessly resourceful and innovative, but with people, he’s totally winging it from moment to moment. Having said that, it makes perfect sense that sharing some futuristically intimate high tech device with a woman would lead him to fall madly in love with her just a few minutes into their first “date.” Add to that the fact that he met this woman 1400 years in his future and you’ve got the makings of a pretty cool sci-fi adventure.

Rei (short for Reinard) and the rest of a planet-colonization crew were supposed to be in suspended animation for 120 years, but, due to a collision with an unknown object, he has been awakened 1400 years later by the Vuduri, who you can think of as mankind 2.0, people with enhanced genetic structure, telepathy, and an ever-present connection to a collective intelligence called “the Overmind.”

Culture shock ensues.

Fortunately for Rei, the Vuduri assign an official liaison to him, a woman named Rome. She is an outlier among the Vuduri; their interdependence with the Overmind has left them without much in the way of ego—they tend to see their interests and accomplishments only in terms of the collective, but Rome has inherited a sort of family tradition of taking a break from the Overmind now and then. This is what leads to Rei and Rome’s literal, if electronic, tête-a- tête and... love.
