Blog Tour: When The Children Fight Back by Barry Kirwan

Book Review: When The Children Fight Back by Barry Kirwan

I am so pleased to welcome Barry Kirwan back to Novel Kicks. He’s here with the blog tour for his book, When the Children Fight Back.

In the near future, Artificial Intelligences will be smarter than us. Is that a good thing?

“Really entertaining, a brilliant balance between action and emotion.”

“A wonderful story. So much imagination!”

A mega-AI known as the Eye is intent on purifying the galaxy, by annihilating all ‘organics’. Humanity, itself already decimated after an attack by the Eye, must join eleven other species in the final battle at Orion’s Gate to stop their nemesis. Led by Sally, humans have a secret weapon: Ares, the last AI from a dead alien race. But can they really trust Ares? And as the battle rages in the heart of a star nursery nebula, Sally realises that one of the other species is about to betray them all…

The thrilling climax to the Children of the Eye series…


The eye is intent on wiping out all ‘organics’ from the galaxy. What is left of humanity must join other species in the final battle against their nemesis.

Sally must lead them into battle. Plus, they still have Ares but can they trust him? Is someone about to betray them all?

As I have said in previous reviews of this series, I’m not always the one to immediately gravitate to novels in this genre but there is something about this series that draws me in. These novels are not just sci-fi, they have a high thriller theme and this book packs quite an emotional punch.

As with its predecessors, I was completely drawn in from page one.

I like that it’s told from the point of view of multiple characters. It gives you a real, well-rounded idea of what everyone is feeling and thinking.
