Review

“Warren Fahy’s Pandemonium is pure genius, an otherworldly wonder as creative as the best of Jules Verne. Here is riveting scientific speculation paired with bravado storytelling. I want more!”
—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of Bloodline

“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.”
—Whitley Strieber, New York Times bestselling author of The Grays

More About the Author

New York Times best selling author Warren Fahy was a bookseller, movie database designer (thousands of his movie descriptions are ubiquitous online), helped get a new definition of the word "mullet" into the Oxford English Dictionary ("mullet") and later was lead writer for Rock Star Games' Red Dead Revolver. His science thriller FRAGMENT was nominated for a BSFA and an International Thriller Award and is published in 19 languages. The sequel, PANDEMONIUM, is now available along with his epic fantasy, CRIMSON. Watch for new chapters of his gumshoe space opera, THEY CALL ME THE FLEA, on Amazon.

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."

James Rollins on PANDEMONIUM: PANDEMONIUM is pure genius, an otherworldly wonder as creative as the best of Jules Verne. Here is riveting scientific speculation paired with bravado storytelling."

*********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.

If you have read the previous reviews of PANDEMONIUM, you have a pretty good idea of the story and the places to which the reader will travel. But even with this previous knowledge of where or what you are about to encounter, allow yourself to feel all the wonder of the unknown, the anticipation, the awe of discovery, the humor and fright that comes from the pages of this book.

Fahy builds his scenes carefully and they are remarkably fun sometimes, and simply horrifying at others. I found myself chuckling and gasping from chapter to chapter. His undergound creation and its awesome features and creatures are unlike anything previously imagined.

In the final chapters, when all havoc has broken out with all of the species attempting to stay alive, I was holding my breath again and again. What was happening was sheer and unique creativity at work.

I have read FRAGMENT, the prequel to PANDEMONIUM, and although a few references to this previous work are mentioned, they were handled so clearly and briefly that they had no effect on the continuity of this story. It was necessary, of course, to explain to a new reader how the amazing sels came to be a part of this book.

Without FRAGMENT there would never have been PANDEMONIUM but, I, personally, enjoyed this book more than FRAGMENT.

In Fragment, Fahy created an island, a sliver or fragment of a continent that broke way from the mainland hundreds of millions of years ago. Evolution had taken a twist and a turn and given us some of the most bizarre and fantastic creatures i had ever read about -- or so i thought.

Fahy turns his prodigious imagination to a massive cave system below the Ural Mountains, there another world has been discovered, and this one just as bizarre and deadly as Henders Island. What would happen if the two worlds collided? Could mankind ever hope to survive?

I loved this book, and can only hope there is more to come.

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.
