Publisher's Summary

She must unlock the secrets of her past life - before her future is written for her.

When cyborg Treeka wakes from an interrupted cryogenic sleep in a genetics lab, she does so in a brave new world - one where immortality is no longer a concept but a construction. Now, the consciousness of a person can live on in a body that can outperform the limits of human ability.

This “miracle” soon becomes personal to Treeka: She was once a living woman, and someone has brought her mind back from the dead.

As memories of her past life resurface, Treeka realizes she has a sister, put into stasis just like she was. At the direction of Dr. Elizabeth Ash, the ambitious designer of the cyborgs, Treeka sets out to retrieve the genetic material needed to revive her twin.

But the more she has to fight her programmed instincts as a cyborg, the less she trusts the motivations of her creator. Treeka has to discover the true plans behind her creation before control over her and other bionic experiments falls into the wrong hands - or risk losing what it means to be human.

Amazing Cyber Thriller!

The Synapse of Ash had me from the opening lines. It's a richly imagined thriller with twists and turns in every scene. It's a page-turner.
It's sexy, deadly, and thrilling. Issues of identity are at the book's core but this is a fast-paced thriller that will leave you wanting more. I'd write more but I don't want to spoil the surprises.
Bravo to D.B. Goodin, this is a thriller masterpiece and an electrifying read.

Captivated!

From the moment I hit play I was captivated by the narrator's expressions and tonality. Plus the storyline pulled me in immediately I wanted to hear what happens next. This was my first listen of non fiction audio book and I was not disappointed. The bar has been set high! Thank you

Never hit pause!

I love this genre! This book is fast-paced and the narrator is outstanding as she negotiates every character! I just could not stop listening and it made me want to buy book two now! Great plot, great storyline, character development left you actually caring about them and their individual stories. Just as I started to wonder what one character was up to, the author nailed the delivery to give me another part of their story. If you are into sci-fi techno, then this is your book, no series of books! Absolutely loved it, can't wait for the movie!

A narrative with a good techno thriller plot

I came across this audiobook “Synapse of Ash: Cyber Hunter Origins, Book 1“, which is great because I was open in trying to listen to some good ol’ sci-fi genre type of story. With this audiobook I am able to have a title I can listen to for those leisure moments. Interesting narrative. Recommended especially if you’re into cyberpunk.

Insanely captivating down to your soul

I still can't believe the ending!! I am jaw on the floor shocked. I can't wait to get my hands on the next one. I had the best time ever escaping to this reality after my day job. The characters are so real and the author's imagery of this wild world gives me goosebumps. The best part about listening to this is that I FEEL ALIVE. The plot is thick and keeps you on your toes each minute to the next. You will feel a deep bond with all the characters. I found myself listening to this book deep into the night because my heart would pound until I found out what was going to happen. This is arguably the most underrated book on audible!!

Fast paced, fun listen

I've enjoyed many of D.B. Goodin's longer works and this shorter book is just as good.

Don't mistake length for quality because this fast paced listen stands up to his usual high standards. You've got elements of your standard dystopian fare along with some unusual elements which give the story a unique edge. Keira Grace does a great job on the narration and really helps draw you in to the story.

Excited for the next installment!
