Product description

Product Description

When Earth is threatened by a deadly plague, a young man enters a virtual world to find the key to humanity's survival. Will he find it in time?

Mathew Grey is a brilliant scientist who accidentally unleashed a nanotech swarm that threatens the planet. Riddled with guilt and running out of time, he uses a dangerous technology to link his mind with a computer-generated "think tank" called Cyberdrome, hoping to discover the key to Earth's survival.

His son, Alek Grey, makes a living attacking network firewalls to test their security. When he is called in after one of his programs is used to attack Cyberdrome, he is shocked to learn that both his father and ex-fiancée have become trapped inside the simulation, unable to be removed without risk of brain damage.

Alek knows of only one way to rescue the people he loves, but will he risk all of humanity to save them?

5.0 out of 5 stars Believable Science Fiction 28 January 2010
By Michael Gallagher - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This came recommended on one of the discussion boards here at Amazon, so I picked it up to give it a try after liking the free Kindle sample. I was not disappointed - one of the points I really need for science fiction novels is for it to be believable. In other words, if there is going to be some futuristic theme or plot in the novel, rather than taking a leap of faith I need to be able to conceptualize it. The authors didn't disappoint in the case, and combined with nice character development and interaction I was sorry to see this book end.

I did like how the authors left you hanging at the end with unfinished business, which I hope will turn out to be a sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Science Fiction: Matrix meets Tron meets science! 12 November 2012
By Ralnarene - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Part of my initial interest in this story came from the similarities in base concept to the Matrix and Tron. Humans enter a virtual world to save the lives of real people. Programs that think and evolve on their own. Computer systems represented by a 3d virtual environment. However, this story adds more science-based concepts and doesn't suffer from fridge logic level plotholes. Think you see a plothole? A scientist notices and explains it.

This also combines more real-world scientific concepts than the previously mentioned works. Nanobots, the grey goo scenario, genetic algorithms, and metamaterials all make an appearance. Though there are some unrealistic aspects, they are generally kept manageable and don't break suspension of disbelief.

I also like how there is an actual reason for the people in the world to exist, and they have their own DNA allowing them to have complex behaviors, unlike the programs in Tron that are able to exist as people and have personalities despite only being made of a few thousand lines of code that should only allow for a very small set of actions based on specific cases.

The world is very entertaining, to the point that I devoured this book in 24 hours.... and immediately went looking for more. I was expecting to see a series of novels, with the potential for a highly entertaining cartoon series (special effects would be too pricey for live action... the CGI involved would be on the order of the recent Tron movie). However, what I found was that this was based off of some simulations that the author had created, with the idea of a potential computer game (possibly an MMO) based off of this.

I'm eagerly awaiting future developments in this story universe. This story has a huge potential for expansion, all based on what has been defined so far in this one novel. Multiple Earths, people to be rescued, and computers systems to explore. Everything a fan of the cyberpunk genre would ask for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Scifi! 18 December 2009
By Peter Piper - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Real Scifi!

What a thrill ride! Just finished Cyberdrome. The sample convinced me to buy the full download right away. Top notch, highly original, this should be selling in bucket-fulls.

Cyberdrome is relentlessly fast-paced. It is very imaginative, with multiple environments and scenarios, and a multitude of potential bad guys. Separating out the heroes, anti-heroes and out-and-out bad guys from the rest, while keeping abreast of the twists and turns in this fascinating plot, is a job and a half! The film Tron comes to mind here, with humans trapped inside a giant computer but there the resemblance ends. Instead of low-res graphics, Cyberdrome is the equivalent of fully rendered 3D action, with protagonists pitted not against a guy on a cycle but against a megalomaniac computer program with versatile adversaries at its command.

Being ex-IT myself I liked all the computer references but understanding these was not essential to following the thrust and heady zest of the novel.

Reminds me also of Ghost in the Shell, where variously cyberised humans inhabit a hazardous future world somewhere between program data and reality. However, Cyberdrome has the benefit of humans fully integrated with the computer and non-stop, heart-pumping action along the way. If you like the film `Avatar', you will almost certainly like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional first novel 17 May 2012
By PotomacDuck - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When you finish a good novel, you sit and ponder the characters, the the plot lines, and wonder about what could possibly be next. Cyberdrome gives you that experience.

I read this great sci-fi thriller 2 months ago and was waiting for an extended sitting to review this novel properly. I still don't have that kind of time, but I feel compelled to let you know that it's a great read. Like most people, I'm suspect of any first time, self-published authors. Don't let the low price, the fact these are first time authors, or the exclamation point on the cover fool you--this isn't low-brow, juvenile sci-fi. It does make you think (not in that awfully-written "I'm confused" sort of way). The characters, flow, and plot are very well developed.

Cyberdrome isn't perfect but what first time author is? I give it 4 out of 5 stars only because "love" is a strong word--I love Arthur C. Clarke, but I sure like the Rhea brothers' first novel and hope to see another (love often springs from "like," after all). If I were rating first time authors, they'd definitely get a 5, as would first-time novelist and Poe award winner Bruce DeSilva (crime thrillers).

As for technical Kindle issues, the formating is on par with novels published by large publishing houses. You won't find glaring, distracting type-o's or grammatical errors (unlike my review, I'm sure). All the basic kindle features are in place and functional (excellent table of contents, chapter skipping (back/forward), etc.).

Bottom line: If you're a fan of good sci-fi, get it. You won't be disapointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tron/Avatar adventure 29 August 2012
By Michael Hansen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
CyberdromeDo you like Tron, buy it. Do you like Avatar, buy it. This is an entertaining novel set in a Tron like world inhabited by Avatars. This digital world is called Cyberdrome. Right from the beginning of the story you soon find out that this is going to be a story set in the distant future where it is possible to create a digital world and go into it. There are problems in Cyberdrome and the creator of this world is sent into this to solve the problems. In it he encounters many of the races (or creatures if you like) he has created and the way they are described you almost feel like you, the reader, are in this world, feeling the love and the hate these races feel for each other. It is a thrilling story and it never stops to surprise you as not much that happens is what you would expect.
