eBook review: Blue Skies, Atopia Chronicles

Blue Skies is a great start to Matthew Mather's Atopia Chronicles. In just a few pages he introduces you to believable future and a character I immediately identified with.

Olympia is an advertising exec run out of steam, but she can't admit it. She is past the edge of a nervous breakdown and needs to find some control. She doesn't like to use drugs but agrees to test a new technology, nanobots embed 'smaticles' into her nervous system and give complete control over the reality she perceives -- bots aren't drugs! With the help of her new poly-synthetic sensory interface, or "pssi," Olympia learns one of those "be careful what you wish for" lessons.

The Complete Atopia Chronicles by Matthew Mather


  1. Meh. I started this series and was totally turned off in the first couple of chapters because I found it so wildly futuristic as to strain plausibility. I’ve enjoyed some other “far future” stuff (Post-Mortal, Ready Player One)but this was just a bit too much for me.

  2. I enjoyed this entire series, I’m looking forward to the follow up. Although it’s far-future, the universe is coherent, and the narrative well constructed.
