About the Author

Kristene Perron is a former professional stunt performer for film and television (as Kristene Kenward) and a self-described 'fishing goddess'. Pathologically nomadic, she has lived in Japan, Costa Rica, the Cook Islands and a very tiny key in the Bahamas, just to name a few. Her stories have appeared in Canadian Storyteller Magazine, The Barbaric Yawp, Hemispheres
Magazine, and Denizens of Darkness, among others. In 2010 she won the Surrey International Writers' Conference Storyteller Award.
She currently resides in Nelson, BC, Canada but her suitcase is always packed.


A career nomad, Josh Simpson has driven trucks through the lower forty-eight states, treated and disposed of hazardous waste, mixed mud as a stonemasonry laborer, failed abysmally in marketing, gotten on people's nerves as a safety man, and presently gets on their nerves even more using nerve release techniques in musculo-skeletal pain relief. He lives amidst the scrub and mesquite of West Texas, cohabiting with the requisite writer's minimum of two cats. Warpworld is his first published novel.

A brand new world and an arrogant hero. A well told story laced with intrigue and an unlikely love. I’m not usually a fan of love stories but this may change. Kristen’s and Joshua are master storytellers with wonderful imaginations. Rebellion, culture clash, invasion, and all the element of great SF in one fast moving bundle. I’ll finish the series and look for more.

A good, solid Young Adult read.

This is defiantly worth picking up any fan of science fiction writing. The book plot reminds me a little bit of the tv show Stargate meets  anthropology to some minor extant. The main character Seg is a cultural theorist who charters Ama's boat to search for vita to prevent the Storm from expanding on his world. Ama and Segs relationship is simple to begin with but as Ama gets to know Seg she slowly begins to trust him. Meanwhile Ama father gets taken by in the authorities on Ama's world in an attempt to find Ama and Seg. Near the end of the book Seg returns to Ama's world to save her father as he promised. In addition Seg aids the rebellion on Ama's world to overthrow the religious rulers of her world and the people who aid them while searching for the vita needed for his world. The book concludes by Seg and Ama returning to Seg's world to explorer other worlds by Seg's side. I'm defiantly looking forward to reading the next book. I received this book from goodreads.

3.5 stars (as reviewed by Melissa at Every Free Chance Book Reviews) Did I enjoy this book: Yes! As with most sci-fi there was a bit of a language learning curve, but once I figured out who all the races were and how they related to each other, I couldn’t put it down (I may have given up a movie night with Husband to keep reading).  There were enough classic elements to keep things comfortable (think: interstellar travel, culture clashes, secret missions, interspecies love), and enough corkscrews to keep me reading.  I won’t give any of the unique bits away, but I will say this:  it took me almost as long to figure out what was going to happen as it took the protagonists (and they were the ones deciding, after all)! I’ve read other reviews that compare this book to Stargate, The Hunger Games, even Harry Potter.  I’d say… it’s all of those plus a bag of awesomesauce.    Would I recommend it: I already have!  I have this weekly Girls’ Night thing where my lady friends and I all sign on to Mumble and chat about life, liberty, and why our SO’s are currently annoying us.  Last week, even though I was barely half-way through Warpworld, I recommended it to my girls.  We’ve passed around books like The Name of the Wind, The Lord of the Rings, and The Princess Bride, so it’s no small thing to recommend a book to my gals.  :-) Will I read it again: I’ll definitely review it before I read the next one… I’m addicted to Seg & Ama’s story! (Melissa received a copy of this book for review purposes.)

Really enjoyed the world building. Well written with great, fully developed characters. Perron and Simpson don't let the details of two entirely different worlds bog down the pacing in this new scifi franchise. I'll be looking for book 2. What also strikes me is just how far they can take this series. There are literally endless rabbit holes to go down and the MC makes for a perfect rabbit for readers to follow.
