About the Author

T.D. Wilson was born in 1968 in Troy, Ohio and has been an avid fan of science fiction and fantasy from a very young age. His early thirst for adventure began as he explored many of the great stories of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Always looking for new adventures, he turned to JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings series and the works of C.S. Lewis, particularly The Chronicles of Narnia series. Star Wars, Star Trek, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who, Orson Scott Card’s Ender Series, and the works of Ray Bradbury count among his favorites for science fiction, but he can usually be found at the bookstore picking up the latest books from Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman, R.A. Salvatore, or Jim Butcher. Today, Mr. Wilson still lives in Ohio with his wife and their two sons.

I found The Epherium Chronicles: Embrace to be an awesome E-book for a lot of reasons. Overall, I thoroughly enjoy the writing style and variety of subject matter described. The book contains enough terms from everyday life and interesting topics, that I found the storyline brought more interest to the meaning of the words than could be possible through non-fiction. The setting is of space in the future, and the genre is science fiction. With such a setting and genre, a lot becomes possible, and the imagination has a lot of options regarding technologies, space empires and commerce, alien species, and the like. In each category, The Epherium Chronicles has a unique and captivating set of data, including spaceship models and capabilities, interstellar and intrastellar scenarios, organizations, and aliens. As for localities through the story, large scale spaceships, smaller spaceships, asteroid fields, and planets are all settings within the setting that added fascination to the future science fiction book. The characters and their descriptions are also very rewarding. Each character is described enough that their experiences, personalities, moods, and relationships all built a mental impression of who they were. The characters also reason, communicate with each other, remember past events, interact with information technology, and strategize in their own knowledge areas. All in all, I found the characters to be very intelligent, although the descriptions of the conversations also added perspective. The plotline and the action was stellar. Navigation and battle scenes all included a vast amount of locational and spatial terms which enabled advanced visualization of the events as they occurred. Numerous battles and struggles occurred or were referenced between both spaceships and people. The introduction and rising action of the plotline were awesome, creating an enormous scene in outer space for the story to take place. Once I reached the climax of the story, I found that I wanted to keep reading to the resolution and completion of the story. I look forward to the sequel.

The first in a series, Embrace, sets off at a pace and style that held my attention from first to last page. What is more, waiting impatiently to get my hands on the next instalment to see how the chronicles and its characters will develop. Wilson’s style made me feel part of the action and flow of the story, rather than the reader of a piece of narrative. I own I like science fiction/ fantasy, so this work had my interest pretty much immediately. Upon commencing to read, I was not disappointed and was ‘hooked’ within the first chapter. It was akin to reading a gentle blending of Gene Roddenberry’s Enterprise and Star Treks with the style of Dale Brown’s writings and techno info speak, with a hint of Lost in Space thrown in for good measure. Wilson has not copied them, for he has a style of his own, and that stands up very well on its own merits. The series starter has me interested: space travel, shakedown cruise/ mission, corporate intrigue and agendas, ‘star gates’, lost experimental colonies, an on board saboteur, and crew antics and ego conflicts.  I look forward to reading the next instalment of the ‘travels’ of EDF dreadnaught Armstrong, her commander, Captain James Hood and his crew.

When I got this book I could not put it down. A must read for Science Fiction fans!.  I've been waiting for a long time to find a Space Opera novel with a story as good as the Babylon 5 TV series.  You can tell the author put a great deal of thought into the premise behind futuristic technologies and space warfare.  I can't wait for the next book to come out!

I received this book in exchange for a review. This was a really good book. It took a while to get into it and the beginning was a little confusing. I had to re-read it to really get it once I was about 100 pages in to the book. The characters are well drawn. I love books about space travel and this book didn't disappoint. I was really sorry when it ended and will be getting the second book in this series. It totally drew me in. The writing and the pace are great. Great read!!
