Kieran Roark awakens with no memory of who he was or what has happened to him. To make matters worse Kieran has one year to remember or the state will euthanize him. Scientist Berkeley Bennett was given the mission to try to manipulate Kieran's emotions to make him remember who he was but ends up falling in love with him instead.

Sleeper Protocol is a futuristic sci-fi read with the main character waking up missing several years and not being familiar with the time or the changes that have taken

He wakes in a wheelchair, with familiar Australian buildings and flying cars in an unfamiliar skyline, and doesn't know his name. In fact, he doesn't know anything about himself at all. He's told he was woken to fight, because no-one else will, and given assistance to find himself, and sent off on his own.

There was some excellently cool tech, definitely the sort of tech you imagine in your wildest futuristic dreams, and it helped to balance the dystopian world. (view spoiler)

Waking in a wheelchair in Australia he has no idea who he is, what’s going on or even what year it is. He’s told he’s part of an experiment; he needs to remember who he is and he now has 323 days to do that or the government will euthanize him. Everyone in this time has a neural interface, but to the people around him he will be a null, a sleeper. Even though he also has an interface, his is different. No one will be able

Disclaimer: I received a pre-release copy of this book in return for a review.

The blurb for this book drew me in and so I was looking forward to reading the book. Right from the start the book gripped me and I finished it in two sessions (a man needs to sleep!)

Told in a mixture of first person from the protagonist, and third person from the other major characters, I really enjoyed this book. There was a slight immersion jarring rip from the world the book is portraying back to this one with a di

SLEEPER PROTOCOL starts out with the main character waking up while sitting in a wheelchair, but not knowing who he is. He gets flashes of what he thinks are memories, but he’s not sure.

There’s a lot he’s not too sure about. Other than WHO he is, he needs to know why he’s been chosen and what his purpose is. And then he finds out he has less than a year to regain all of his memories.

As the book progresses you soon find out that an alien invasion is on its way, and this “sleeper” maybe the only k

My full review is part of the blog tour in February. Mini ramblings since I just finished!
I enjoyed this one. There were some parts that I wasn't too fond of, i.e. the way the relationships were handled but overall this was a really good novel. I think it could have been better if there was better pacing with the relationships since it seemed like everything came together and fell apart very quick

All I am going to say is, there better be a sequel.

In Kevin Ikenberry’s novel, Sleeper Protocol, Kieran Roark is a 28-year-old man who wakes up with a head full of cobwebs and a new nickname: Sleepy.
As the story unfolds, it's like a futuristic re-telling of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein where Sleepy - a re-animated corpse - comes back to life thanks to a brilliant young doctor named Gwendolyn “Berkeley” Bennett. Doctor Bennett must compete for influence over her patient/lover with Sleepy’s artificial intelligence – an AI protocol known as Mally.

I don't usually reach for soldiery books, as I often find all the action is done better on a big screen. Not so here. Kevin Ikenberry created a world I (almost, but only because this world is one scary place) wanted to jump right into. I'd be happy to meet those characters, well, except for that one cold calculating woman, she terrifies me. Pace and tension kept me engaged and eager to keep turning pages. The relationship aspect was possibly a little simpler than real-life, but hey, the book is ...more
