    The writing captured my attention from the start. It is almost poetic, helping the reader to envision an imaginative picture of an unimaginable universe, seeing what some may think is impossible to see. Yet the writer seems to make it plausible.Although the second instalment, I already got a quick sense of what the characters are like and what they are faced with. A mass genocide that had occurred only left the world with small groups of inhabitants – ones that support the Moîrai, and ones th [...]

    *I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review*This book went right into the action just like the first one did. For whatever reason this book took me a little longer to read than the first one, but was no less enjoyable. Learning more about the Moirai was quite interesting and fun to read about. Dan, the main character grows in his leadership roles and in turn has more things to deal with. This story transitions nicely from the first, which was more focused on family and mora [...]

    "ARC received for honest review"This was a must read after reading Daimones, the first book in the series, I found this book as enjoyable as the one before. The intrigue of knowing what is happening after the apocalypse was the catch. Now we got aliens instigators and Eridu leaders, all of them trying to prevent humanity from destroying itself.I found Dan again as a strong character, trying to battle for human rights and his destiny. I got myself hanged and couldn’t wait to read the next book. [...]

    I absolutely loved Daimones, and have looked so much forward to reading this sequel. I was not disappointed. I enjoyed this book so much, it is packed with action, and there was never a boring moment. It is very interesting to see how the main character, Dan has evolved and continues to evolve throughout this book. If you, like me, love the post-apocayptic/dystopian/sci-fi genre, this book (and it`s prequel) is an absolute must! And, I think the Daimones Trilogy would make an amazing movie some [...]

    Having read part 1, Daimones, getting Once Human was a must. As if waking up to a global human culling and learning to survive with the aid of the alien instigators wasn't bad enough (see Daimones) Dan, our first person narrator and evolving Eridu (Earth) leader, finds out that all wasn't a simple plan to prevent humanity from destroying itself, again! Intrigue and betrayal are the central themes to keep you on the edge of your seat in this volume. Dan learns of another alien race interfering wi [...]

    anaslair.wordpress/2015/0Actual rating: 3.5 starsThis second book of the Daimones trilogy delves more seriously into the sci-fi aspect as opposed to the reactions to the apocalyptic events in the first book. These newly improved humans develop strange capabilities, one of the most interesting to sense whether anyone is around and even their heartbeat and feelings. The Palladium device allows all Selected to easily keep in contact with each other and, through council meetings with the Moîrai, pr [...]

    Things are not going well on Eridu due to the increase in incidents of sabotage. Plants and live stock are being destroyed and although the Moirai have offered their assistance in stopping these attacks, Dan and the other Selected have decided that human problems should be dealt with by humansThe fate of humans still hangs in the air. Are they worth saving or will the son of man be once again corrupted? No matter how hard they try, humans will find a way to cause trouble when jealousy rules. Dan [...]

    Once HumansCreating a new world living on a new planet created new obstacles for those that no longer live on Eridu or Earth. Selected or Spared: Depending on which one you are would determine your life span, your importance as plants and live stock were destroyed and the race called the Moirai, the reason for so many having to leave Earth will now teach those that survived the apocalypse the importance of team work, honesty, loyalty, trust and looking past their position or wealth in life in or [...]

    This book had an interesting premise, but a poor English translation completely gutted it. The result was a linguistic jumble that was a chore rather than a pleasure to read through. I expect the author is a far better writer than this book indicates, but all I have to work with is the translation that is in front of me. Were it not for the translation, this book could have been an interesting take on how galactic society could view and deal with the human race.Besides the translation, there are [...]

    Awesome Indies Reviewers
    Once Humans is worthy of Awesome Indies approval. The plot involves surprising revelations, double crosses and unexpected events which make for a good story, and the character of Dan grows as the book progresses. Though I found Marino's style of leaving a lot unsaid unsatisfying - whole scenes sometimes appear to be missing from the story - the book has enough action and interest in the plot to make up for the short fall. There are a few cumbersome sentences and some copy errors but not enough t [...]

    Readers who enjoy horror will probably give this book a better rating, as there's too much discussion of dead bodies, producing neurochemicals from brain matter, and malevolent aliens for me to be completely comfortable with the read. If you're still keen, there is plenty of other material in Once Humans. Dan has been genetically altered by an invading alien race which plans to farm a small number of humans. For no reason I can see, in the first book these aliens were called the Daimones by Dan, [...]

    (I received this book for free as part of First Reads giveaways).(This review may contain spoilers).I have to be honest - I did find this book a bit hard to get into. I didn't realise at first that it was the second in a trilogy - and although I can often read books that aren't the first in a series or trilogy, I found this one particularly hard.The blurb of the book caught my attention really easily. It definitely sounded like the kind of book that I'd like to read. I liked the difference betw [...]

    Massino Marino’s Once Humans: Vol. 2 of the Daimones Trilogy continues the saga of Dan Amenta and his family after the arrival of the Moirai on earth has triggered the culling of the human race and the resurrection of humanity. Dan has been ‘selected’ by the Moirai and given special powers. New communities of the ‘selected’ have cropped up, the largest being that led by Dan. Humanity seems on its way to a new beginning, until raids by the ‘spared,’ humans not selected for transform [...]

    I received a free audiobook for an honest review.I listened to the first book in the Daimones trilogy and found it intriguing so I was looking forward to listening to Once Humans to see how things turned out in this new world run by the Selected and the Moîrai.Unfortunately, for the most part, I was disappointed (not in the author but in the Selected and the remaining humans). I didn't like how the first book ended and I was hoping the humans would rebel in the second book. Instead, they allowe [...]

    A very interesting piece of fiction; it drew me in, made question society in many ways, and kept me wondering what would happen next. I had almost discarded the book after chapter 1, despite the nicely written preface. Beginning chapter 1 I was immediately lost in an unknown world with little discription and confused dialog between unknown parties; many would have given up right there. Luckily chapter 2 brought some clarity and some action to bring the title character and his foriegn world to li [...]

    "Once Humans: Daimones Trilogy, VOl 2" by Massimo Marino is a fascinating and captivating science fiction novel. In a way it is not just action packed science fiction but also a thoughful reflection on what makes society perfect. An alien race / species, the Moirai, have taken over Earth and they have selected some humans to help them establish a new world and have spared other humans, too. The rest are dead. However, there is unrest on the new Earth, the discovery of a different race, battle an [...]

    This novel advances the story a number of years. The Moîrai, some of them, help Dan, one of the Selected, and the Spared ones rebuild the human race.But it quickly becomes apparent that something more is going on, Saboteurs are wrecking much of the machinery set uo.That's whem Dan learns the Moîrai have not told him evrything. Another race is operating on Earth. The Kritas want the rest of the human race destroyed. And all the Moîrai are not innocent either. It turns out reasons for the death [...]

    With guidance from the Moirai, man has thrived and created a new civilization. Although some are not entirely human anymore, they have still maintained the common goal of keeping peace on earth. When their bright future is tarnished by horrible acts of sabotage, the Selected are faced with difficult decisions. This novel is the product of a brilliant mind. The narration is precise, informative, interesting, and very in-depth. Each character grows as the story progresses, as does the reader’s a [...]

    As simple as part 2 of the trilogy was, the second one has become complex with several shades of suspense in there Another alien race is introduced and then later in the book, you briefly come across many other races. Story gets complicated with hidden motives, back-stabbing, deviant behavior, rise of a new unknown villain and tragedy striking our protagonist close at heart twice! I am looking forward to the third and final episode where the complexity and suspense will be simplified and unra [...]

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.The story is one that pulls you in from the beginning and doesn't let go of you until you are done. The characters are well developed and you see growth of the character. The storyline is flawless and flows perfectly. I am not a huge fan of post-apocalyptic novels but I will be reading the next installment in this series and probably rereading the entire series.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the 1st book in this series, found it to be very positive and enlightening with everything happening in the story. This one I found darker, the story is just as intriguing as the 1st one but I found it a bit harsher with a lot more action and conflicts. I so far am enjoying the series.

    3.5/5.0A hard-core sci-fi, “Once Humans” continues to follow Dan Amenta and his family as they navigate the new world they live in. Read full review in the November 2013 issue of InD’tale Magazine.

    NEW HORIZONS MEET OLD ASPIRATIONSDan, his family, and friends old and new all continue down the long road to a becoming someone different yet recognizably the same. Love and deep concern make the way easier for Dan and all mankind.

    Much more sci-fi in nature than part 1, and reasonably decent plot, but some passages feeling a little contrived. Better pacing than part 1 though and enjoyable overall.

    From the Editor of anotheruniverse a subsidiary of San Francisco Book ReviewsThe second in the Daimones Trilogy from Massimo Marino, does a great job of clueing in the reader about the first book with a detailed prologue, making the reading of the first volume not necessary. Once Humans continues the story of the Selected, the transgenic beings created by the Moîrai, who continue to live in peace and security on Planet Earth, known as Eridu by the Moîrai.The future is a somewhat uncertain plac [...]

    koeur.wordpress/2015/09/0Publisher: BooktropePublishing Date: September 2015ISBN: 9781513702926Genre: SciFiRating: 2.3/5Publisher Description: The last day has come and gone, but the saga continues in Once Human as Massimo Marino continues to explore the future of humanity. When you’re surrounded by peace and plenty, think of a malignant power lurking from the depth of the darkness. Review: This was boring with a capital “B”. Aliens kill off our race but make some humans better than they u [...]

    While I enjoyed this second book in the series well enough there were a lot of times that I was confused by the author's word choices. I would have to read and reread passages to try to figure out what was going on or being said. And I was really frustrated too because in the first book every thought that Dan had was articulated, so I always knew what he thought was going on but in this book there were a lot of times where whatever he was thinking wasn't conveyed except in vague terms. I'm guess [...]
