Product Description

Product Description

First contact did not go well. Survivors are fleeing Earth, into a hostile galaxy where alien intelligence and weaponry rule. Can a deserted planet offer refuge? Or will the genetically engineered Alicians finish the job started on Eden. While Blake fends off attacks, Micah seeks allies, but his plan backfires, and humanity finds itself on trial for its very right to exist.

This stunning sequel to The Eden Paradox launches us into alien political intrigue and intergalactic war of survival.

Lydia Manx, Piker Press: It's hard to put down Mr. Kirwan's book, but at the same time you don't want to race ahead but savor the complexities of personalities and the well crafted story line. There are new worlds and new enemies entwined with the main characters nearly as closely as their lovers. I can't wait for the next journey along side the Eden pathway!

SF author Gary Gibson: A science fiction thriller with terrific images and revelations.

More About the Author

Author of The Eden Paradox and the sequels Eden's Trial, Eden's Revenge, and the forthcoming Eden's Endgame, the last in the series. Barry was born in Farnborough, England, home to the fast-jet Red Arrows. He did a doctorate in Human Reliability Assessment, which concerns predicting future behavior using psychological techniques and data. He has worked on the safety of nuclear power plants, offshore oil and gas platforms, and more recently air traffic, and publishes in the safety arena. He now lives just outside Paris in France, and writes Science Fiction short stories and novels. The psychological angle influences all his work, exploring where humanity is headed, but also how different aliens could be, not just in looks, but in their values, thoughts and communication. This is explored in the Eden Trilogy, but also in short stories, especially those associated with his 'Hell' and 'Sphericon' universes (available free on his website (

5.0 out of 5 stars Eden's Trial - the suspense continues 2 Mar. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thank heavens for Kindle, otherwise I would have had to wait for the publication of the sequel to Barry Kirwan's utterly gripping The Eden Paradox: Eden Trilogy v. 1.

No doubt this 2nd book in the trilogy would work as a stand-alone read, but why rob yourself of the entertainment factor and compelling portrayal of the key players in the earlier volume? Whilst many sequels disappoint, this one builds character enrichment. All our favourites are developed Sandy (I didn't warm to her initial judgemental temperament), Micah (pathetic geek or understated hero-in-the-making?), Blake, Zack, Pierre, Kat, Antonia, Vince (do we like him or not?), Louise (vile women could she possibly have ANY redeeming features), Jennifer, Dimitri, Rashid and the dreadful self-obsessed megalomaniac chain-smoking-man (shades of X Files here) Shakirvasta.

Surely the Alicians, with their Q-Roth alliance and enhanced genetic patterning are invincible, or should I say `inlouisable'? However, we meet a new race, the Osirions (can't check spelling here, having finished the book my husband has commandeered my Kindle so he can read it), the complexities of the Hohash are progressed and we start to comprehend the bigger picture of the galactic hierarchy. A plethora of personal agendas concealed underneath the declared political manifestos, just like real life.

To say much more would give too much away, suffice to say, read it yourself. Oh yes, it's only out on Kindle, you might have to invest in one ...

5.0 out of 5 stars A great sequal 7 July 2013
By Dylan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The 2nd in the series sees humanity being put on trail for its very existence. There are sub plots in multiple locations to keep things interesting and some new ideas like aliens that use colour to communicate.
It explores the worst of humanity and the best in a great page turning read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot more psychographic than the Eden Paradox 19 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you have not read the first book, the Eden Paradox, read this book if you like strong psychographic profiles, tragic irony and upsets in the direction one story unfolds. If you're only after hardcore Sci-Fi, then simply don't bother.
Unless you've read the first book, in which case you'll want to read it anyway. And you won't be disappointed, since if nothing else, this book builds up a magical saga on the back of the adventures in the Eden Paradox.
I won't comment on the plot; it's best if you let it surprise you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this Book 26 Nov. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A great sequel to the first book, greatly expanding on the stage already set in the Eden Paradox. The story builds pace throughout to the point where you just don't want to put it down. Now waiting for the release of the next in the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eden's trial 21 Oct. 2012
By Claire
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the first book in the trilogy, and the second does not disappoint. The characters continue to keep you interested and the story pulls you along at a fast pace. I'm not always a sci-fi fan but these first two books have been a great read. I'm looking forward to the finale.

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as the first one in the trilogy 24 Sept. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The second novel in the trilogy is as good as the first, but still is slightly lacking in pace in some parts, hence again the four instead of five stars. Lots of characters involved so you need a good memory as to who was who in the first one. However characters are built upon and are able to grow and the mystery is unfolding even further and the novel goes places the reader could never predict, which I love. Lots of questions about humanity and their place in the universe asked and comparisons made to other alien races who come in an amazing assortment of colours and shapes. But there is still a mystery to be solved and I want to know what the answer is. Can Barry Kirwan get five stars out of me for the third novel in the trilogy. Only time and reading will tell. In any case I am hooked.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a "Blockbuster" 17 July 2012
By jan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book so much, I was reading it whenever and wherever I could. This is a book that you really have to read at least everyother night as there is so much going on, you will need to keep up with it, but I didn't want to put it down so i didn't have that problem! I have read Eden's Paradox which I thought was brilliant, but the Eden's Trial is even better! THE STORY IS SO CAPTIVATING, CERTAINLY AN ENTHRALLING BOOK! I cant wait to read "Eden's Revenge"!
