Editorial Reviews

Jan Berry
"Once I got started, I did NOT want to stop reading. In short, your story is a masterpiece. This is hands-down one of the most interesting, well-crafted books I've read. I love the importance of scarcity theme you wove into the story - it was a profound thought that resonated with me. The best kind of book not only entertains, but gives you a new idea or paradigm shift to chew on for a bit."
authonomy.com - A. C. Wiles
"A very good writer. Both the descriptive writing and the dialogue appears effortless and incredibly natural. I've only had time to read four chapters but I really like the premise and I will definitely read more."
authonomy.com - Clive Radford
"What an interesting and somewhat unique concept. Many divergent themes explored here with a compelling approach to character and plot development. It's a well paced story which is begging for a thunder-flash dramatic ending."
authonomy.com - Richard M
"Very descriptive, very dreamy and above all else, very good."
authonomy.com - Pamela McMillan
"Your first chapter was perfect, it drew me in and captured my attention. I was going to stop at the end of chapter 4 but you left me at such a cliff hanger, I went onto 6. I really enjoy your dialogue; it’s quick, to the point, witty, and very revealing about the characters themselves."

    This was an excellent read. I originally picked it up from Nook because the title looked interesting to me. As I began reading it I found it harder and harder to put the book down until the "end" of the story. Now, I just bought the second book and hope it's as good a read as the first.

    confusing and laborious

    I tried to like it but I felt like the author was improvising as the story went along with now rhyme or reason. I thought the author was trying to showoff - using big words and many details. I never cared for the well being of the characters because it was too scattered like the author was given a script to now add this to the story then another and another like some improv comedy routines.
