Publisher's Summary

Three exciting stories by amazing science fiction storyteller Daniel McMillan that remind us - don't believe everything you see....

Sanctuary - After Mary Russell has her ingenious proposal rejected by the tech company she works for, she decides to move on and create her vision without them. In realizing her life’s ambition, everything else in her world is torn apart. She should have been more careful what she wished for.

Komodo - A battle hardened Galactic war veteran whose reason for living has been taken from him faces off against impossible odds. He could be reunited with his dead wife sooner than he thinks.

Mantle - An anonymous, mysterious hero from a desolate future passes down what he has learned to the next generation of saviors, a boy he encountered while responding to a "calling". What he doesn’t know about his powerful young student surely couldn’t hurt him, right?

3 Winners

These are 3 very different stories but each is compelling in their own way. Sanctuary is a high tech love story. Komodo is a hard Sci-Fi with a great hero. And, Mantle is a dystopian future fantasy with another great hero and an amazing plot twist at the end. I honestly couldn't pick a favorite as I really enjoyed them all!

3 very unusual tales

I loved the first story. A woman builds a computer that she loves but her bosses at work won’t listen to her and she wants to prove them wrong. The next two tales didn’t hit me as vividly as that first one. I read this book as an ARC reviewer and I would definitely recommend you read this very unusual book.

Good starter collection

Interesting selection of stories. Left me intrigued to other works by the author.
I did feel the narrator speaking in the southern drawl accent spoilt the actual story as it felt stifled and forced.

3 excellent stories

The first is a Science Fiction love story. What better mate could you possibly have than one you created from scratch?
The second is for the true Science Fiction fan. Think Bugsy Malone on a distant planet.
The third is dystopian story, with an interesting twist at the end.

All of them are well worth the listen.

Great short story collection

This audio book has three completely different story's. Each story the author tells is excellent. I was very impressed. The narrator does a excellent job, I can't recommend this book enough. Give it a try!
