Echo Volume 4: The Last Edge of Darkness

Kim gives a wonderful review for Echo volume 4!

Nerd Thoughts

Last but certainly not least, time for the final review of the Echo series. Right off the bat, I have to say thank fucking god this book had a good ending! By a good ending, I don’t mean satisfying(cliffhangers can be satisfying so that’s different), I mean an ending where everyone(mostly) is happy and healthy. I’ve said this in other reviews but I will forever be a massive sucker for a happy ending, especially after the mc has been through hell and back. And this book definitely gave that to me. On another note, the descriptions of the fights and anything in the mindscape were excellently confusing. By that I mean I could practically imagine how trippy it would be in movie form.

The one thing that I was conflicted about was the amount of existentialism in this volume. One on hand it was a little too much for me…

Echo Volume 2: The Taste of Ashes Review

A great review for Echo Volume 2! Thank you, Kim!!

Nerd Thoughts

This was one of those books that were stressful to read(in a good way)! The whole time I was waiting for the other shoe to drop, the shoe of course being the betrayal that I was expecting from Atriya’s colleagues. I was in a constant state of worry and it was great. I hated putting it down because there was so much fighting that I was sure almost every other page Atriya was going to be mortally wounded and left for dead. But of course, he had to keep showing us how badass he was by constantly saving everyone’s asses.

Besides the constant badassery, there was one other thing that I really enjoyed in this book. That being Atriya finally hitting the “fuck it” button. I loved how he eventually got to the point where he didn’t care what everyone thought or how things are usually done and just wanted…

Guest Spotlight with Sci-Fi Author, Kent Wayne, aka The Dirty Sci-Fi Buddha

Here’s my interview with D.L. Lewellyn! I had a great time answering these questions!

By D. L. Lewellyn

Or is it the Dirty Sci-Fi Buddha, aka Kent Wayne? Hmmm. I’ll let you decide after you meet him. Read on!

You might guess my first question today, Kent. What seeds that imagination when you write your “Yet another weird ad for my novels” blog? They sure caught my attention.

Believe it or not, no one’s asked me that before. Oftentimes, it’s a throwaway joke I hear on a comedy podcast. It takes root in my mind, grows into a premise, then I change the context so I can make a miniature story out of it. Other times, I’m struck by a “What If,” then when I sit down to write, I tease out the possibilities within that premise.

You’ve created foes, heroes, and the most zany and naughty superpowers from just about every likely and unlikely personality in…

A Book Review

This is an amazing book by Kent Wayne. It’s about the trials and tribulations encountered by the protagonist, Atriya, who is a Crusader, working for the Enforcement Department, in order to survive in an oppressive regime. The story begins with a glance into the near future when humans left the earth to settle in a similar planet, Echo.

Since then, business and government have come together to form the regime, often known as the Regime. The military and the police are now combined into the Department of Enforcement. For millennia, a conflict has existed between the Regime and the rebels known as the Dissidents.

The Moon City of Ascension, a futuristic metropolis,adorned with spectacular architecture is home to society’s elite. Buildings branch and whirl like vines and trees on Ascension.

These creations would not be able to stand without the aid of a gravity-manipulating device…

Book Review – A Door into Evermoor

Alicia gives a fantastic review for a Door into Evermoor!

Alicia Jeanne

I do not remember how I found A Door into Evermoor by Kent Wayne. I don’t remember when I clicked on it, I don’t remember buying it, but I do know I was trying to pick my next read in my kindle library and the cover was so happy and cheerful that it was my next read. And yah know what, IT WAS SO FUCKING GOOD!

A Door into Evermoor is a young adult fantasy book and I really enjoyed reading it. We are immediately introduced to Jon and rather than the author drawing out him moving into Evermoor, we are thrown into it almost immediately. The author rushes you along with Jon to move into this new realm and it is done so well, not only with the writing but how the pacing is done as well. Reading the book you legitimately feel rushed and confused.

When Jon arrives…
