The timing of Emerald Eyes is in 50 years, when the United Nations has assumed control over the earth, sometimes by force as in the case of Japan and the United States. The French, who backed the UN early, are the ethnicity that now is in the ascendancy. Trying to genetically engineer humans to be better soldiers for them they create a race of telepaths, the first of which is Carl Castanaveras. Most of the novel is about Carl's struggle to free the telepaths from being slaves in the service of the U. There's a lot going on beyond that in this novel, because of the depth of Moran's world building..

While it is not as good as The Long Run, this is an excellent cyberpunk novel and one of my favourites in the genre. It also provides a lot of valuable backstory for his other novels in the series.
Oct 10, Jim rated it it was amazing. Emerald Eyes is the story of a group of about genetically engineered telepaths who were designed to be assassins and spies for the UN, in UN-occupied America in the early 21st century. It is also the first novel in a storyline that Moran has said would take something like 30 novels to encompass, of which only about 4 have been written.
The telepaths become involved in a confrontation with the UN after receiving their freedom from their UN masters in a court case, with disastrous consequences. The sequels expand on the story and are amazingly engaging, fun reads. Unfortunately, it appears Mr.

Moran has moved on to other projects and won't likely produce any more stories set in this universe. I was like, whaaaaa? What writer is that? I decided to start at the beginning with this book and I'm telling you all I'm currently on the second book, and it "The Last Dancer" was recommended to me by a well read and articulate poster on the Steemit platform as his all-time favorite--placing it over Heineken, Niven, Herbert.

I'm currently on the second book, and it is even better. Jun 12, Kerry rated it really liked it Shelves: A friend loaned me this many, many years ago and I've had a hankering to reread it and the following volumes but it and the others are out of print and very hard to find. I recently discovered that Moran has made a number of his books, including this one, available as editions on his blog.
I downloaded them immediately and enjoyed my reread of what is actually quite a bleak book about the genetic engineering of a line of telepaths and what happens to them. Aug 05, April rated it liked it Shelves: A good story overall, but I kept feeling like I was missing something I very much liked some of the characters and their histories I've given this one 3 out of Nov 20, Ryan D. If you love science fiction, then this is a must read!

Daniel Keys Moran is one of my top 3 living science fiction authors. His work is consistent. I view his work as art. When I read it, it moves me. One of my go back to reads. Love it every time: What's not to like? A great setup for the continuing time. Fast action from the start, and not too much talking head time. Wonderful characterization, loveable, sometimes uncomfortable given their flaws. Solid plot with enough predictability to engage and surprises to entertain.
Moran is a great author who needs to write more for me: Aug 16, John rated it liked it Shelves: Birth and unfortunate fate of first generation of telepaths, a few decades from now after the UN has bloodily taken over America. I dont think he quite captured the telepaths' closeness, but it's a good story overall.
Sep 08, Will Wesson rated it really liked it. This series is or was pretty impossible to find, and it's wild stuff. I remember reading that the author plotted out the whole series in a spiral notebook in his teens and then went on to actually write it, which seems like a minor miracle to me, and it's good stuff, which seems like a major one. Dec 22, Joanna rated it liked it.
Kind of old school written in the 80s but not too dated. The retro elements are kind of why I like it. If you are an sf nostalgist at times you might like it too. But the 2nd volume in the series The Long Run is more fun, otherwise. Aug 13, Patrick rated it really liked it. Gotta concentrate during this one. His afterword mentions 30 in thus series. Which means he drops pieces in clearly for a later explanation. Throw Time travel in there and it gets hairy. What a ride though. Feb 26, Justin Dloski rated it it was amazing. These are the greatest sci fi books I've ever read, the entire series.
The books are very difficult to find, as they are out of print. I suggest getting to your local used book store ASAP to dig them up. Nothing more needs to be said. They are unbelievably potent and dense books. May 02, Steve rated it it was amazing Shelves: What a fascinating read! This science fiction novel begins slowly, with a vast scope. Then it tightens up and becomes a taut action-packed thriller. I enjoyed it and will read the sequel.
Nov 10, Warren Rochelle rated it it was amazing. We are left with a cliffhanger--and does anyone know if there was ever a sequel? I love Moran's stories: Jan 27, Timothy Boyd rated it it was amazing Shelves: One of the best SiFi stories I have ever read. Fantastic story and characters.
Very rich history and background to the plot. Feb 07, Ian Muttoo rated it it was amazing Shelves: One of my faves. Happy to be reading it again. Wish I'd Found This Earlier An engaging tale that wears well despite the year advance of technology. I am moving along to the next volume in the series. Jan 02, Luis rated it really liked it. Thankful for the friend who recommended I start this series with book 2, which was more fun. The information below was posted by Moran on his website. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
