Editorial Reviews

Review

"Armistice Day is a fast-paced action adventure, but one with solid character development" "With Armistice Day, Drazul has delivered a debut novel that anybody should be proud of, and something that's an example of the good that can be self-publishing." - Review by POD People.

"Armistice Day is not just an excuse for action, the story is informed by a surprisingly sophisticated appreciation of conquest politics, revealing it to be a world of secret games played by the Empire in order to subdue the conquered for their own good." - Review by The New PODler Review of Books.

Once my editor gave me the thumbs up, I set out to get them published.

Format: Paperback
Armistice Day is a sci-fi fantasy accessible to a wide audience. It is set in the future where Earth has been taken over and "rescued" from humanities foibles and self-destructive behavior by an alien republic. Earth, as usual, squirms under this new leadership, but acknowledges that things have improved, barely so, since their arrival. Bickering continues from the major powers, but the squabbling is minor compared to the major wars that had been happening before. Armistice Day is the day Earth is to officially become a part of this new alien republic, but events spiral out of control when it seems the resistance movement is out to stop the ceremony from happening.

It is a wonderful mix of modern day references - the Gulf War, Afghanistan, 9/11 - but set just far enough into the future that it makes it completely possible for alien life to have found us. The characters are so human, their emotions believable, and their actions understandable. The idea of having an alien government take us over because humans have proven time and time again that we just can't stop our self-destructive behaviors lends an element of philosophical thought. The question of freedom and forced realization of our own hubristic, elitist, and, most of all, arrogant natures resonated in my mind at the thought that maybe, just maybe, we really do need an alien government to guide us toward peace. Kudos to David Drazul on a fantastic ride.

David Drazul's "Armistice Day" is a tightly written, near-future sci-fi thriller that kept me hitting my Kindle's "Next Page" button well beyond my lunch breaks.

Aaron Osborne leads a security detail hired to protect the dignitaries signing the official peace treaty between Earth and the alien Krendorian Empire. But everything goes wrong, and Aaron's team is framed for an atrocity they didn't commit. Aaron has to clear his name and find out who committed the crime before he and his friends are hunted down by human and Krendorian authorities eager for payback.

Drazul's human military characters had the "grunt lingo" down - wise-cracking when not in a fight, but all business and disciplined when the bullets were flying. And the alien characters were well-drawn with unique cultural viewpoints that were at once funny and disturbing.

I look forward to more stories set in this universe, particularly how things change on Earth after they join the Krendorian Empire.

I found this to be a quick and enjoyable read. Good amount of character development and I liked how the characters (especially Aaron) were revealed over time and were not just laid out from the beginning. I also enjoyed the alien species that populate the story and, like with the characters, how information on them was revealed over the course of the story. The book is a bit dialog heavy for my taste but much of the story actually progreses through the dialog which was interesting. Am interested to see if Aaron's saja continues...
