Weapon Of Flesh is a breath of fresh air in the fantasy literature category.
This book appeals to readers over the spectrum of genres. The story is the age-old question of nature vs. nurture.

I was unable to put this book down, reading long into the night. The characters are well-written, and the books' pace keeps your attention, as you can't wait to turn the page to see what happens next.

"Weapon of Flesh" is a fabulous tale of medieval fantasy that will leave readers begging for more from author Chris A Jackson.

Weapon of Flesh has a really interesting mesh of elements. It combines a martial arts feel with a touch of organized crime, all mixed with traditional fantasy. Sounds a little strange--you're thinking ninja-Godfather with Elves in tunics aren't you? Well, you'd be right. And believe me, it actually works!

Excellent read, highly recommended.

Mr. Jackson has crafted an amazing tale of one boy's journey to maturity, complete with unforgettable characters. But watch out! You might see yourself around a corner or two! In a world where conscience is often seared with a hot iron, Mr. Jackson challenges the reader to look beyond what we're told we should do to see all we can be. Thanks for the trip, Chris! What a ride!

Chris Jackson raises interesting ethical issues in Weapon of Flesh. I used to be a straight-out sci-fi fan (rockets, black holes, time warps and such) but Jackson has finally broadened my horizons.

In this book, the Weapon slowly discovers its dark side and struggles to overcome it. The resolution (as so frequently in life) is negotiated rather than triumphant and readers will find themselves oddly sympathetic with this killing machine. In all, a great tale.

Meet the Author

Chris Jackson was born and raised in southern Oregon. The son of a fisherman, he fell in love with the sea at an early age. His second love is Science Fiction and Fantasy, hooked by the works of Heinlein, Niven and Tolkien. He attended college at Oregon State University with the dream of becoming a marine biologist. He moved to Texas to attend graduate school, where he discovered three things: scientists don’t sail the seven seas, he didn’t want to spend his life drowning in academic red tape, and the girl of his dreams.
Together they moved to Florida, where they live on a sailboat with two psychotic felines. He has been writing for about 16 years.
