Publisher's Summary

War and plague have left millions dead. In the midst of the carnage something awoke, and the wars all over the world stopped. Suddenly. Silently. Since then, people have been disappearing. Jake Thorne is a survivor. A nomad. A father. Hunting in forests of the land once called Australia, every day is a struggle. For food. For safety. To protect the ones he loves: his children Gus and Maisie. Death surrounds them in the lonely wilderness of a world with few humans left. The greatest threat comes in the night, glowing and artificial, in the shape of their dearest departed. It comes offering immortality. Where have all the humans gone? Doctor Marcus Hamlin knows. Can Jake protect his children from the terrifying spectre that haunts them? Find out in this epic debut sci-fi thriller - the first in The Ghosts of Men trilogy, by James Fox Higgins.

Ominous, yet hopeful sci-fi

This series deserves more attention, and I'm hoping that more will discover it once it's complete. The author has put a lot of thought into projecting forward some of the political, cultural, and technological trends of our world to an unsettling end state we might well be facing. The characters are well-realized, and you can really feel for them because they might be us or our children. Yet, even in the dire future the book presents, there is subtle but heartening optimism--a candle of hope whose light is only visible in the darkness.

The narration by the author serves the text quite well and is a pleasure to listen to.
