... on Indie Book Discovery

by M J A Watney


"This wry and charming story blends elements of sci-fi and fantasy into a sometimes goofy and often funny caper. It's pretty much delightful all around." -- Publishers Weekly

The Willderschen, a shadowy alliance of some of the most powerful people on the planet, are dead, killed in an explosion. But why should that matter to Bertram, a lonely middle-aged Physics teacher, to Anita, an overweight schoolgirl escaping her bullies, or to Charles, a toff with more money than sense who thought he was just out on a boozy stag-week with his mates? And who exactly are the Kybernos? And why do they need the help of this motley trio to, quite literally, save the world?

Meanwhile, in an apparently unrelated incident, a tiny space capsule, returning from a three-year mission to Mars and back, overshoots its landing ground in the deserts of Kazakhstan, arcs low across the Polish sky and hits crowded Kazimierz market in the Old Jewish Quarter of Krakow, unleashing a cataclysm that nobody could have predicted.

As two groups of people unknown to each other and a hundred miles apart struggle to bring the growing catastrophe under control, Bertram Anita and Charles finally come to understand exactly what it is the Kybernos do ... , and that there really is no such thing as a coincidence.

'Kybernos' was a quarter-finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award 2014.

REVIEW CATEGORY: Suspense. Reviewers are kindly requested not to reveal the role of the Kybernos, and not to take the synopsis beyond Anita's disappearance and Michael's discovery of the capsule. Thank you for your co-operation in maintaining suspense and avoiding spoilers.
