Publisher's Summary

At the intersection of love and ambition, one man must face his fears and reevaluate what it means to be human. 

Faced with global warming, a man-made plague, and aliens determined to keep humans from expanding beyond the solar system, two men take opposing paths. 

Astrophysicist Daniel Walker is determined to finish his deceased parents' mission to find a world suitable for human colonization and pursues that goal with a single-minded ambition. 

Cadmon Dhyre fought his way out of a plague camp to become a renowned nanotechnologist yet remains a social pariah. Embittered, Cadmon will do whatever it takes to cure the disfiguring disease threatening his life, even if it costs him his humanity. 

When the paths of these men cross, the future of mankind hangs in the balance.

Now that's a story

This is the first book by Maria Anderson I have listened to and I very much enjoyed it. The story starts a little slow but once it gets going, it keeps you engaged. I found the story creative and different than most of the stories out there. Adam Blanford does a good job in narrating the story. My only complaint would be the editing. There are a few times when a character is making an announcement over a PA system and a special effects is added, I think it comes across as cheesy.

This is another book written for me.

I loved the back-an-forth in this audio-book. The characters were unique, at least to me. Who would win the final battle was nerve wracking. It could have gone either way from about one half the way through the book. I am really glad I listened to this book. I highly recommend this audio-book. Now for the obligatory: "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review." "I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.”

Great Science Fiction!

Well written and well thought out. Storyline has several changes that flow together very well.
Narration was performed well with professional audio editing, especially when a communication was made over an intercom or radio.
I recommend this audiobook for ages 17 and older due to some adult situations and violence.
I was given this audiobook for free and I freely give it my rating and opinion.

Nanomachines, space travel, and Aliens

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

TLDR; If you enjoyed Children of Time or Singularity you'll enjoy this.

Not much for content warnings, there's some sexual abuse, and torture, but that's about it. Generally tame, and the content is brief.

Spoiler Free: You start by getting some social drama, from a few perspectives. After that off to space, to explore a new planet, and then back to Earth, for the completion of the story. The progression of the story was great, I would have added a bit more story time on the planet, or on the return trip from the planet. It's a minor thing for the story, but I think it would have been a great time for character development. There are a couple of twists that help bring the pieces back together, with a nice ending point. There are a few questions left open, and enough space for a sequel but it's wrapped up well enough that it doesn't have to have one.

Narration worked, there were a couple of effects added in (static added to radio communications). I tend to give indy titles some leeway with narration, they're not working with a massive budget. That said I've heard worse narration in popular books, so with that context, it was good.

Overall I really enjoyed this. I'd have no hesitation picking up another book from this author, assuming it was in a similar vein.

Well Written and Entertaining

NanoMorphosis is well thought out, well written, and very entertaining. Some of the characters are good, some bad, but most lie somewhere in the middle. I thought the plot was great, fast moving and full of twists and surprises. The story was so interesting that I never wanted to stop listening until it was finished. I hope Marla Anderson continues to write good and entertaining science fiction. The narrator did a good job with all the characters and his voice was an excellent fit for the central character.

Super Listen! Realstic refreshing Sci Fi

I would say that I am veracious reader and listener and get through a few books/ Audio books a week. I have eclectic tastes which range from Jeffrey Archer to Stephen King, my main genres are Fantasy and Sci-fi.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Performance: I would of scored t his a 5 as the narrator was solid and it was a joy to listen to the only reason I didn’t and some may think it is petty but at around the 15 minute mark the audio changes distinctly almost like there is a change of kit being used. I thought it may of just been my download but double checked it on my PC.

So onto the actual book and what a little belter it is. The story grabbed me immediately and I got through it in 2 days which is super-fast for me for a 16 hour + book on normal speed. This is a well thought out Science Fiction book which pairs futuristic technology and advancements with relatable world issues making identifying with the characters and the story arcs very easy.

The book touches on lots of themes that are very relevant in our world today some of which have been done to death but they all felt fresh and not forced when reading, I especially liked how sexual exploitation was portrait in the book it was done in a way which made me cringe but was not crude.

I was satisfied by the end and it didn’t detract from the book but there were still lots of unanswered questions which I would love to get some answers from in a follow up book.

I’m not a fan of sex scenes within books, there were a few in this book but they were not over the top.

If your looking for a character driven science fiction book which brings spades of realism this is one you wont want to pass this one up.
