Wrath of an Angry God
Humanity is desperate to find a way to quickly end this catastrophic war before the aliens can overwhelm them with sheer numbers.
"Very rich and layered story lines. The universe you’ve constructed is a fascinating place to me. Often I find that character development is treated as an afterthought in many space operas. While I am able to excuse this fault due to authors of this genre being faced with so many storylines, characters, and ground to cover, I still long to see characters grow and change through the course of the tale. So you can imagine my pleasure to read the first book in your saga in which you balance the tightrope of character development while advancing the plot(s). The writing really makes me care what happens to each of your characters." -- George W. Padgett / Author of “Spindown"

"Michaels’ world-building and his many webs of wheels-within-wheels intrigue in the Sentience Trilogy remind the reader of Frank Herbert’s classic Dune series. A truly enjoyable read for any fan of science fiction."-- Richard Paolinelli / Author of “Maelstrom” and “The Invited”
