Editorial Reviews


TAYLOR JONES SAYS: In The God Machine by Ken Newman, Kieran Nash is transported from Earth in 2014 to a desert planet named Adeaa, where he is rescued from a gang of natives by a squad of German paratroopers from 1944. It's obvious that Kieran's sudden appearance is a surprise to everyone, including the alien who kidnapped the troopers from Earth. As Kieran and the Germans join forces, they discover that they are here to defeat a "god machine" that has turned the normally peaceful natives into violent slaves. Now, the Earthlings need to find a way home without getting killed by the "god's" slaves or the alien who kidnapped them in the first place--a task that will take all of their skills and creativity against impossible odds.
Like Newman's other books, this one is creative, intriguing, and riveting. Once you pick it up you won't be able to put it down.
REGAN MURPHY SAYS: The God Machine by Ken Newman is the story of a loser given a chance to save the world. It's 2014, and Kieran Nash is a nerdy college student who's failing one of his important classes. His professor wants him to drop out of her class, but he refuses. He's determined to get a passing grade and begs for another chance. The professor relents on one condition--he does her a favor and delivers a truck full of furniture to her sister out of state. With few options, Kieran reluctantly agrees. But not long after he starts out on his journey, the trip takes a major detour, and Kieran is transported to a planet with two moons. The first group of beings he sees tries to kill him, and Kieran's both terrified and confused. But when he's suddenly rescued by a group of German soldiers who kill the natives, Kieran is even more baffled. The Germans claim to be from the year 1944, fighting a battle against the Allies in Italy, when they were kidnapped and brought to this desolate planet. Although Kieran doesn't much care for Nazis, and the Germans think the only good American is a dead one, they join forces, trying to get back to Earth--a decision that will change all their lives forever.
In his first two novels, Forsaken and Dead Ends, Newman proved he has a rare talent for science fiction, and The God Machine doesn't disappoint. In fact, his books just keep getting better. With a unique, clever, and fascinating plot; marvelous, enchanting, and endearing characters; plenty of humor; and enough suspense to keep you glued to the edge of your seat, this is one you really don't want to miss. I loved it.

From the Author

The God Machine was a pure joy writing. It is a science fiction novel, but I wanted a story that would appeal to anyone wanting a fun, thrilling adventure and not just geeks like me. I was always a history buff and it was fun to have a young man from today's culture clash with those whose society and mindset was completely different.
I hope you enjoy my little adventure!
