Book Description

Deep beneath the Ural Mountains, in an underground city carved out by slave labor during the darkest hours of the Cold War, ancient caverns hold exotic and dangerous life-forms that have evolved in isolation for countless millennia. Cut off from the surface world, an entire ecosystem of bizarre subterranean species has survived undetected—until now.

Biologists Nell and Geoffrey Binswanger barely survived their last encounter with terrifying, invasive creatures that threatened to engulf the planet. They think the danger is over until a ruthless Russian tycoon lures them to his underground metropolis, where they find themselves confronted by a vicious menagerie of biological horrors from their past—and by entirely new breeds of voracious predators. Now they’re rising up from the bowels of the Earth to consume the world as we know it.

USA Today praised Warren Fahy's debut novel, Fragment, as “a rollicking tale [that] will enthrall readers of Jurassic Park and The Ruins.” Now Fahy sets off an even more thrilling stampede of action and suspense, bursting forth from the hellish depths of...Pandemonium.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

“What do you get when you cross Jurassic Park with an ancient underground city? The answer is Pandemonium, an exciting read from thriller author Warren Fahy.”
—Steve Alten, New York Times bestselling author of Meg and The Loch

“Warren Fahy's new novel Pandemonium is probably the best high-tech thriller I've read since The Mote in God’s Eye. My heart was pounding (literally) from page one. Can't wait for his next tale.
—David Hagberg, New York Times bestselling author of Castro’s Daughter 

“An expertly crafted, heart-stopping tale of darkness and danger that I will not soon forget.”

*********SPOILER-FREE REVIEW************

The first book in the series, Fragment, presented a very unique and original storyline that dealt with an offshoot or "fragment" of evolution by explaining, through real science and speculation, what could happen if a land mass was isolated and allowed to evolve undisturbed for 500 million years. In Pandemonium, Warren Fahy brings us another untouched world deep in the Ural Mountains.

Pandemonium wastes no time jumping right back into the story from where the first book ended. A megalomaniac Russian oligarch has founded an underground city, but something is preventing the power from being turned on. Who does he enlist to help solve the problem but our favorite heroes from Fragment. Once the team is back together in the underground city, all hell, or shall we say "pandemonium", breaks loose.

While Fragment was heavy on the scientific explanations, while still packing a lot of action and adventure, the opposite can be said for Pandemonium. The science aspect is still there but the action has been ratcheted up several notches. The world building in Pandemonium is once again right up there with the complexity of Hender's Island. Warren Fahy builds a completely new ecosystem from the ground up and explains it in a way that makes sense, from the base of the food chain all the way up to the new and deadly apex predator.

My criticism for the novel is short. There were a couple minor errors dealing with timescale in the plot and an ambiguity about a certain characters "armor". These points, however, are so minor as to take nothing away from the broad scope of the novel and, I feel, should have been caught by the editor.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Ladies and gentlemen, may I present Pandemonium." February 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nearly three years ago, I read a debut thriller by an unknown author leading me to ask the immortal question, "Where have you been all my life, Warren Fahy?" And more to the point, where did you go? Happily, Mr. Fahy is at last back with a self-published sequel to Fragment. It would be an understatement to say that my expectations for this book were high. Arguably, too high. Let me cut to the chase and simply tell you: this book is totally AWESOME!

Pandemonium opens just a few months after the events of Fragment. Fahy had left the door wide open for a sequel, and he steps right through it as the desiccated body of Thatcher Redmond washes up on a remote Japanese island, carrying it's deadly cargo of Hender's fauna. (Don't assume you know where this is leading. Fahy is always three steps ahead.)

Across the world, Nell and Geoffrey Binswanger are enjoying their first days of wedded bliss. Since their escape from Henders Island, they--along with colleague Andy Beasley--have been working with the five surviving hendros from the island. These gentle creatures have captured the world's imagination and are well on their way to winning their hearts. But the powers that be aren't sure how much freedom these alien intelligences should be granted. They are currently being held in comfortable isolation, but they are petitioning for full freedom--or at least internet access.

Nell and Geoffrey are shaking up the hendros' comfortable routine by going off on their honeymoon. However, just as they're about to depart for Hawaii, the two are given the proverbial offer they can't refuse. It's a lucrative working vacation studying an extraordinary unknown ecosystem. Their benefactor is a slightly suspect Russian billionaire by the name of Maxim Dragolovich.

When I first read FRAGMENT so many months ago, I finished the book in total exhaustion. Talk about NOT being able to put a book down, and as I said then, many of my senses had me screaming at the characters to "get the hell outta there !" Well, I am put back in the same frame of mind with PANDEMONIUM ... wishing somehow I could reach out and protect them.

Rarely do I get wrapped up in science-fiction or fantasy, whatever genre you choose to place PANDEMONIUM, it really does need a genre of it's own. I have read some where the scientific writing has made me somewhat dubious of the writers knowledge, or their generous use of Wikipedia. However, in Mr. Fahy's writing it feels solid, as if the time spent writing both books was based on sound, study and understanding.

It would be so easy to ramble on about his writing style and substance, however, allow me to simply say, IF you desire the mental ride of your life, First read FRAGMENT, and then when your body and mind are back to normal, let PANDEMONIUM attack your senses all over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Fun! July 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading Fahy's book, Fragment, a few years ago, I knew I wanted to keep an eye on this author. Fragment was fantastic and Pandemonium is just as great. Actually, I think I enjoyed Pandemonium even better. The author really does his research and many (if not all) of his "monsters" are based on real creatures. You can tell he is personally fascinated with the animal kingdom and all it's mysteries. Follow him on Facebook and you will see this even more clearly.

Back to the book: I highly recommend Pandemonium to any reader who enjoys thrilling adventures with a scientific bent. This one is hard to put down once you get started. While you can read this as a stand-alone book I would suggest reading Fragment first. Many of the characters from Fragment have carried over to Pandemonium, human and non-human. They are two very different environments but each is frightening in it's own unique way. There are even pictures and information about the creatures in the back of the book. Loved this!

Plenty of other readers have given a synopsis of the book so I will not. Suffice it to say, this book is a keeper I will be re-reading down the road. I can say that about very few books. Oh, and it's a quick read. I read it in two days because I couldn't put it down. That's not to say there isn't enough material in there. It's just so good that you have to finish it so you can read it all over again. Now, go buy it and prepare to be creeped out by the creatures but also fascinated by them.

FANGORIA on FRAGMENT: "I haven't had this much fun reading a science/adventure thriller since Jurassic Park. For the last half I was frozen in place-I couldn't move, couldn't talk. I even teared up a couple of times in pure joy. It took hours for the adrenaline to wear off."
