    Description

    Artificial intelligence is our last hope of saving the war-ravaged Earth in this near-future science-fiction thriller from the apocalyptic mind of New York Times best-selling author Nicholas Sansbury Smith (Hell Divers, The Extinction Cycle, Orbs).

    The most advanced soldiers in human history are about to become obsolete.

    Engines. Genetically modified warriors that keep the great Nova Alliance war machine churning against the enemy Coalition. Most days, Engines are all that stand between salvation and chaos. Led by legendary Engine Captain Akira Hayashi, Shadow Squad has fought on the frontlines for a decade. They are on the brink of victory when the Coalition launches a series of desperate and devastating attacks that cripple the Nova Alliance restoration sites vital to save the dying planet.

    As the sites burn and Earth’s hope of salvation fades, Shadow Squad is equipped with neural implants to connect them to Apeiron, the first hybrid human-AI entity. She is coded for what Captain Hayashi believes is an impossible task - peace. But war isn’t the only threat to the Earth. Apeiron has uncovered a deadly secret with implications that could end all life. This rapidly approaching threat can be stopped only if humanity bands together on what will become known as E-Day, a pivotal moment that will determine the evolution - or the extinction - of the entire human race.

    Kicking New Series Opener! Wow!

    E-Day is a new take on AI and post apocalyptic sci fi. Yes, there is the man versus machine, but more importantly Nicholas Sansbury Smith addresses the danger of merging a human mind with an AI. Can a humam machine stay human? Or will it's CPU win out in the end?

    What could go right? What could go wrong? Without giving any spoilers, let's just say that when Smith considers a fresh take on an old story, you need to sit up and take notice because he is a word smith and a master story teller.

    Do yourself a favor and dive into this fresh story steeped in Japanese culture and the true honor of the Samurai warrior. Smith does an amazing job blending the very old with the very new.

    And no one can say enough about RC Bray's narration. That man should insure his vocal cords for millions!!

    E Day.

    E-Day starts with a bang and doesn’t let up. This new series by NSS is an excellent foray into science fiction. If you enjoy Hell Divers, Halo, and anime, take a chance with E Day. You won’t be disappointed.
    R C Bray kills it as always.

    Techno Samurai…all in!!

    Really wonderful and unique story, mixing “Japanese” style characters with a future tech, post apocalyptic setting! More solid world building and story from NSS and of course top notch narration from RC Bray coaxing the story off the page and bringing it home for the win! Can’t wait until the next book!

    Knocked it out of the MegaCity!

    Nicholas Sansbury Smith knocks it out of the park again! I'm normally not a fan of sci-fi, but pre-ordered this based on the author. I'm glad I did! This book meets all the requirements of a good sci-fi: mad scientists, artificial intelligence, incredible war machines, space, hybrids, and a planet on the brink of extinction.

    The glue that holds the story together, though, is Captain Akira Hayashi. Akira, the leader of an elite team of modified soldiers (Engines) called Shadow Squad, comes from a long line of honorable warriors who's stories are told in the codex he carries into battle. Akira knows that artificial intelligence is the only way to save the failing planet, but to be successful they must defeat the Coalition, who believes artificial intelligence has doomed mankind.

    Aided by AI, the battles are still waged with flesh and blood. Don't fall in love with any one character, though. NSS has shown in previous series a rich back story isn't a guarantee of survival. This story had me on the edge of my seat and I ended up getting it on audible so I wouldn't have to leave Shadow Squad on the verge of battle with Iron Wolves and Breakers when I got in the car.

    Will the Nova Alliance triumph? Will Akira's war horse lead them to triumph? What? Space elevators? Asteroids? Pistons? I can't wait for book 2. Write faster!

    Awesome new series by Nicholas Sansbury Smith

    Absolutely love this new tale from Nick Smith. Nick has a way of drawing you in with fast paced action and memorable characters. Needless to say he had my attention from beginning to end. No spoilers but if you like SciFi you will enjoy this listen.

    A new writing that retain the original soul of NSS

    In the introduction there is a “history lesson“. As I listened to the flow of that segment of the book I immediately knew that this story was a step forward in the progression of how polished the author is becoming. The storyline retains some of the elements that are historically what has made this author popular, but it introduces new material that has been handled correctly. I personally loved it. I am looking forward to a continuation of the story as well as the later series entitled “carbon wars“ if that is created in the future. I find everything from the characters to the storyline to be a more refined version of the things that I love about this author and thus I believe it to be an exceptional new series for him to begin. Not to mention the fact that this is a topic which we as a society should give more contemplation. Highly recommend.

    loved every minute!

    Nicholas Sansbury Smith does an amazing job of world/character building and RC Bray does an outstanding job bringing everything to life much so I found myself tearing up at multiple parts, crying over fictional characters, yep not afraid to admit it. The world NSS creates is absolutely terrifying but his vivid descriptions make it seem like a movie is playing in your head, and I absolutely love it. E-day had me sitting at the edge of my seat from beginning to end and I can not wait until book 2 is out

    Great New Series

    A testament to the greatness of NSS is how he can take a subject I don't think I'll enjoy (AI/Robots) and make me love it! Can't wait for the next in the series. RC Bray gives his usual amazing performance!

    NSS has done it again!

    Being a brand new series from one of the best authors out there, Nicholas Sansbury Smith has outdone himself again with a brand new series. E-Day, taking place in 2088, is an incredible outlook on what AI can have on the future of mankind. An ongoing battle between the Nova Alliance and Coalition. Against AI, the Coalition led by Dr. Cross try and overtake the super-cities led and protected by the Alliance. With the Alliance fully embracing the future of AI, a team of AI assisted and augmented soldiers called "engines" lead in battle trying to overtake the sinister Dr. Cross and free the people from his sadistic reign. Such an incredible book! Completely anticipating the remainder of the series.

    Cyborg Samurai on Cyborg Horses with energy Swords

    The author wrote a story where Samurai are riding in to battel with Swords on horseback. This story contains not enough worldbuilding.
    If super modern armies are going back to swords, there must be a reason for that. And it feels like it is just in the because it is "cool".
    The character are working, but the world there inhabiting doesn't
    make sense. Why is there an AI church but anybody that believes in a different god calls them self atheists? It is a cool idea to show how people see ai, but if it is a part of your story you have to present a reason.
    I stop listening after four hours. And for the next audiobook, please don't make Voice artist sing
