Mimi of the Nowhere gets reviewed by Publishers Weekly

Recently I decided to enter Mimi of the Nowhere into the Booklife contest at Publishers weekly under the Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror. The contest is far from over, but each book entered in gets a professional review from a critic.


Here’s what they said about Mimi of the Nowhere

Title: Mimi of the Nowhere (Chronicles of the Great Migration Book 1)
Author: Michael Kilman
Genre: Fiction/Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror
Audience: Adult
Word Count: 43,000

Assessment:

Plot: Kilman’s story is well plotted, with several surprises that will sustain readers investment in the story. The concept of roaming cities is a fascinating one with much potential, and the author capably delivers an exciting and atmospheric narrative.

Prose/Style: Overall, the prose is often lyrical, with memorable and poignant descriptions of the unusual world the story occupies. Dialogue is realistic and believable.

Originality: This book presents an engaging twist on a post-apocalyptic world. The author vividly describes the novel elements–the walking cities, the regeneration alcoves and futuristic medicines. The novel offers an authentic representation of the lives of the homeless; a thoughtful look at the horrors of advanced technology; and a fresh take on psychic beings fighting for the world’s welfare.

Character Development: Protagonist Mimi is so human and sympathetic that the reader will feel immediately invested in her substantial evolution. The supporting characters are also well established and come across as integral to the storyline.

The world has become a strange place after climate change. Giant walking cities roam the landscape evading deadly storms and searching for resources. Immortality is available for the right price, and an ancient conflict is stirring in the heart of the city of Manhatsten.

In this world, there are things worse than death. Mimi, a homeless woman from nowhere, knows all too well what that means.

She thought she was unique, that there were no other telepaths. She was wrong.

Soon, she finds herself in the center of a conflict that has raged since the cities took their first steps over a thousand years ago. But this time, there might be no escape. This time, the city might just recycle her.

Library at the End of the World Interview

A few weeks back I was interviewed for the podcast series, The Library at the End of the World. It is a podcast series that focuses both on survivalism and on Dystopian authors. I am featured this week on episode 67 of the series where I talk about both, Mimi of the Nowhere and why it seems that humans are particularly attracted to dystopian literature. At the end, you also get survival tips from the host.

It will take all the power of the sisters of the Order of the Eye to protect the city. But Alexa Turon has seen the future, and she knows what’s coming, she knows if they don’t do something, the city will fall. Can she and her new allies change the future or is too late to stop the inevitable?

USC Front Cover GraphicSynopsis: The Children of Gaia won’t stop until every last walking city is destroyed.

The city of Langeles is rubble, resources are dwindling, and storm systems are larger than ever before. The people of Manhasten are in great danger, and they don’t even know it yet.

Life in the city hasn’t changed much in the forty years since Mimi joined her telepathic sisters of The Order of the Eye, but the winds of change are blowing, and their enemy, the Children of Gaia wait in the shadows to turn the city to ash. At the center of it all is one man, a man as ancient as the city of Manhasten itself, a man designated Runner 17. A man who is more then he knows, and maybe the only one who can save the city and the rest of humanity.
