From the back of the book:

Manhatsten is in chaos, and the city AI has vanished.

The battle for Langeles is over, and it’s clear nothing will ever be the same. Security forces are scattered, the Runnercore is gone, and many are missing in the aftermath of the battle. In the streets, the Lowers are organizing, and rebellion is spreading. The city is on the verge of tearing itself apart.

It’s up to Serah, to find the few that remain of the Order of the Eye and discover a way to unite the city before Miranda and the Recycled return to finish what they started.

But from afar someone is watching Manhatsten, a force older than the city itself.

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.
