Imagine waking up 14 centuries from now, only to discover that everything you know about the universe is wrong and you are nothing but a despised relic from the long-dead past.

Rome’s Revolution is an interstellar saga about a man from the 21st century and a woman from the 35th century who fight forces from the incomprehensibly large to the infinitesimally small, all intent on destroying mankind.

Cinematic in scope, Rome’s Revolution offers romance, comedy, heart-pounding thrills, suspense, “legal” time travel, and meticulously researched hard science. It is a love story and a culture clash that celebrates the triumph of the individual over a mass-mind that thinks it is infallible.

Rome’s Revolution has it all: robots, aliens, computers, genetic manipulation, spaceships that travel faster than light and some that travel a lot slower. 

Rome’s Revolution chronicles the adventures of Rei Bierak, a twenty-something male from the very near future. Rei, along with 542 other humans, is frozen and launched in the Ark II toward the stars with the hope of establishing a colony on a habitable world in the Tau Ceti system. During Rei’s long trip, modern civilization has collapsed, and society has reformed into a decidedly different model. The 24-chromosome mind-connected humans of the future called the Vuduri are efficient, indifferent, and emotionally deficient.

The Vuduri have conquered faster-than-light travel and have established an outpost in the Pi3 Orionis system (aka Tabit) to study why certain stars are disappearing. Awakening 1388 years in the future, Rei meets Rome, a beautiful half-breed Vuduri woman, who is eventually ostracized for consorting with him. Rei and Rome are joined by OMCOM, a super-computer with delusions of omnipotence. Together, they fend off a hostile society, saboteurs, and technology indistinguishable from magic. The fate of humanity, perhaps even life itself, hangs in the balance.

If you are looking for some science in your science fiction, this book is for you. (One other note: this story is true, it just hasn’t happened yet.)

Fans are saying

Wow! Amazing story, amazing universe

This novel is almost three books in one. A page-turner in every sense of the word. I could not put it down even when I needed to. The author has truly created a brave, new universe. My favorite character was MINIMCOM but the heroes, Rei and Rome, showed true growth and resourcefulness when dealing with the escalating crises.

The science was crisp, even heavy-duty but did not get in the way of the plot. I would love to see this made into a movie but it would really be three movies. I highly recommend it.

Never a dull or slow moment

A great science fiction book, which holds the reader's attention with both the science and the emotional intrigue of a romantic, unique relationship. The author creates a very imaginative and creative universe and society of peoples, as the backdrop of intrigue.

I especially loved experiencing the bio psychosocial, maturational development of the main characters. I loved the computers, which had character, but still remained computers. One of the real treasures of the book was "the baby". I fell in love with the baby and his relationship with his mother.

The book was definitely mutltifaceted on so many different levels. There was never a dull or slow moment. I heartily recommend this book as a very good read.
