Mr Miles isn't who you think he is.

What starts out as a perfectly normal day, with a horse trader riding into Fort Missoula in 19th century America, quickly turns bad when he's caught breaking into a safe and has to rely on, well, unusual means to escape.

Fast forward a millennium or so.

Akal lives in a habitat on Earth, shielded from the outside environment that has become hostile to humans. Rebelling against authority when their regulated lives become too much to bear, Akal discovers that deat

I don't always like when an author narrates their own book, but he did a good job with this one. The characters voices were not very different so it was a little difficult to distinguish who was talking sometimes. He did a wonderful job of expressing the emotion that the character was feeling though!

This book started out a little slow for me, but picked up a couple of hours into it. I enjoyed listening to the book, but it was not the type of book that I just couldn't stop listening to. This is t

I had already read this book a while ago, but the review doesn't match the rest of the SPFBO books. It was part of Qwillery's grouping and has since been eliminated.

The main character, Akal is an Astraean, who are a nearly immortal like race of beings that can live for billions of years and take millions of forms. Akal is about 11.5 billion years old and has lived as light/energy, trees, humans, other sentient alien species etc. Bein Astraean is something that happens to you, rather than be

After a bit of a slow start, I really began to get into this book. By the second chapter, I was hooked.

I plan to read both the second and third books, as well.

Souls of Astraeus is a science fiction charged with excitement, solid explanations, great characters and awesome illustrations. Even if you are not a sci-fi fan you will enjoy a good story about who we are and the immensity that surrounds us.

Akal discovers that his soul is really ancient and has gone from life to life, from form to form, from planet to planet. And he is one of the lucky ones to get the chance to be called an Astraean. The Astraens have the chance to obtain knowledge from all the

This story is over three hundred pages long in written format and just under seven hours of listening in audiobook format. Unusual for the self-published book, Souls of Astraeus is available in all formats, hardcover, paperback, ebook, and audiobook. This reader took advantage of the ebook and audiobook options. The reason I included the audiobook, is that, also unusual, Souls of Astraeus is read by the author. How better to grasp the nuance of the written word than as interpreted by the author? ...more

Living in a heavily regulated society in the distant future, Akal dies defending his wife, Lannya, who was banned from the colony for defying its strict pregnancy regulations. At the moment of his death, however, Akal becomes an Astraean, a being with the ability to travel on "soul ribbons" across time and space, known as the "multiverse." Traveling across the multiverse in many forms and during many lifetimes, Akal learns that Lannya has died as a result of her exile into an inhospitable land a ...more

I have read and reviewed books before where the story starts when the central character dies, but none as gripping as this one. There is no shortage of variety of adventures for the central character Akal, who finds himself at various times involved in the American Civil War and in a future intergalactic conflict to name just two. He is driven by an impossible dream, or so it seems, as he wishes to find his wife and be reunited. You will, as I did, enjoy his adventures and agree with the conclus ...more
