The ‘I, Human’ series by author Vito Veii is a must-read for any true fan of the science-fiction genre. As we all know, science-fiction is about much more than shiny spaceships and new, strange races. It is about the ethics of technology, about philosophy, morality, and the complete transformation of the human species. Science-fiction novels show us how space travel can change our perception of life and divinity. Vito Veii’s books contain all these elements, and then some. Currently, there are seven installments in the ‘I, Human’ series, with ‘The Cosmic Corridors’ having just been published.
In the previous book, Captain Magnusson met the time watcher and found out that he would have to travel to the nexus in order to meet a powerful ally who could help him and his crew defeat the darkness at the edge of the galaxy. This, however, is not an easy task. To get to the nexus, the Captain will first have to talk to the allegorical man. Now, the problem is that he has no idea who this allegorical man is, or where to find him.
Part 7 opens with Captain Magnusson, Astra, Padre, Tavo, and Vlen around an artificial campfire. They are discussing the latest events, and trying to come up with a viable plan. The Captain is not pleased when he finds out that Astra and Tavo had been keeping something from him. It seems that Astra has already met the allegorical man, when she was back on Sapentia. She was attracted to a golden-orange orb similar to the color of her aura, and inside it she saw a man who talked to her telepathically. He told her he was a sentinel against the coming darkness, and that she had entered his orb for a reason, even though she didn’t know what it was. When Astra finishes her story, Captain Magnusson agrees that this sentinel may be the allegorical man, and asks her to try and contact him again.
From this point on, the action picks up and every chapter reveals new information about the allegorical man, the nexus, and the darkness they all need to fight. The fate of the galaxy is in their hands, and they have to use all their knowledge to find a way to defeat the evil that is threatening to consume everything it touches. ‘The Cosmic Corridors’ is suspenseful, intriguing, and filled with unexpected twists. Even though it does offer some answers to the questions in the first six books, it leaves enough to the reader’s imagination. All we can do is hope that the next part in Vito Veii’s series will be released as soon as possible.
