Publisher's Summary

Relics: Omnibus is the complete technological postapocalyptic series.

You've listened to the books separately - now listen to them together. The Relics: Omnibus edition is the three-in-one edition you've been waiting for.

Relics: One. This is Relics.

Myers is a Relic. Cast out of society by a computer program that's far more efficient at managing and regulating human life than any human ever could be.

The System is running everyone's life. It's quickly becoming smarter than humans, and it no longer has any need for leaders like Myers. There's a technological singularity coming, and only Myers knows how to stop it.

The problem? He doesn't remember anything from the past 15 years.

And now he's being hunted....

Relics: Two. Myers is starting to piece together his life as the world around him crumbles. After a technological singularity, there is an all-knowing power controlling the lives of everyone on Earth. Myers can't remember what the System is, but he does remember one thing: He played a role in why it exists.

Rand and Diane join Myers in a race to discover what the System wants, who wants to stop it, and who wants to see it succeed at all costs. However, there are new players in the game. An entire population of Relics exists, but what they want with Myers is still unclear.

What's worse, they've all lost their minds, and Myers is starting to feel his own slipping away....

Relics: Three. In the end, the System will win. That is the belief shared by the humans who fight for the sentient computer system that controls them. That is the belief shared by those who want to keep the System in power.

But there will still be an end.

There are others - Unders, Relics, and other rebels who want nothing more than to bring the System to its knees, as impossible as that may seem. This is the end.

Join Myers Asher, Jonathan Rand, Ravi and Ary, and others as they race to beat the assembling army of System-controlled humans to the ICPL. It is believed to be impossible, yet impossible things are usually worth dying for.

Scary concept!!

The blurb pretty much sums this up better than I could!!..."Myers is a Relic. Cast out of society by a computer program that's far more efficient at managing and regulating human life than any human ever could be.

The System is running everyone's life. It's quickly becoming smarter than humans, and it no longer has any need for leaders like Myers. There's a technological singularity coming, and only Myers knows how to stop it.

The problem? He doesn't remember anything from the past fifteen years.

And now he's being hunted..."

This book surprised the heck out of me. I love a good techno thriller but when you add in a post apoc setting, I didn't think it would work, but it does!! I flew through this and absolutely loved it!

The plot was equal parts fascinating as it was extremely scary! Could you imagine a world where an A.I becomes smarter than humans and holds all the power?? This is the world at the moment, and boy was it terrifying. You can't hide from the all seeing eye ;)

Myers is a great character. He wakes up with no memories. He is being hunted and has no clue why. Slowly things start to break through his mind and he starts to realise some important things...like he is probably the only human alive that can stop what is happening. He had a hand in creating this AI, but with his memories gone, how can he? Seeing Myers struggle to remember who he was and slowly learning about him and his life was thrilling. We slowly see the pieces start to come together and it was awesome!!

In all, this was such a great read. It was entertaining, unique and engaging. I loved the world the author created and was so happy I gave this book a chance. There was so much happening throughout the story that I found it hard to put down. It's over 15hrs long but I listened to it in just a few days!!

David S. Dear read this well. He had plenty and tones and voices for the different characters and gave a good performance. I felt like he needed to work on his inflections more though to truly bring this to life.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts

Artificial Intelligence vs the remains of humanity

Relics are people. People who have bucked the system and had their minds broken, erased because they proved to be too dangerous to an A.I. Their brains are erases in chunks, so that they have no memories of what they did, and they barely know how to fend for themselves. These people are hunted. Myers is a new Relic, just released into the wild. He's lost about 15 years of his life, just no memory, and the bad news is, somewhere in those lost memories is a key to stopping the oncoming singularity. Three books center on Myers quest to stop the singularity.

This book is set in a bleak dystopian setting in which humanity has lost, and A.I. runs everything. One of the things I liked about this book is that the main character, Myers, never gives up in spite of all the odds against him I liked that the book doesn't make it so that every relic is a good guy, and that there is always hope.

Dear narrates wonderfully, and pulls you into the future world before you know you've left here. He makes you feel everything Myers does, you will wince when he is hurt, and cry if he stubs his toe. This is a powerful book about loss, grief, hope, redemption, andthe right for freedom.

Great story. Great narration. Loved it.

I was gifted this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Boom.

You never know what sometimes what to expect from a book. But this one turns out to be a solid one.

The characters are very well written and the story is very good.

I loved the time that I spent in this book.

A.I. Sci-fi

This story revolves around a supercomputer A.I. that has advanced to a stage where it is running the world and everyone's lives. There are those who are happy to let the system remain in control and there are those who try to fight against it.

Overall, I enjoyed the story but did feel that sometimes the author went over and over the same information. I wasn't particularly fond of any of the characters either.

I think the narrator did really well with the reading of the story and he did use different voices for the range of characters.

Entertaining

This is a free copy and a voluntary review. The basis of this story is a computer program that takes complete control of the world.The resulting world is intriguing and the characters are well described and sympathetic.Some of the situations the central characters escape strain credulity. The troops serving the computer program are pathetic considering that the program can control everything.They are as competent as the Empire’s forces in Star Wars. But overall, an interesting and entertaining listen.
