Book Description

"REHO is an instant post-apocalyptic classic."
Nicholas Sansbury Smith, best-selling author of the ORBS Series

☣ A 75,000 Word Novel

Nuclear war destroyed the OldWorld. But that was just the beginning. During humanity's darkest hour, an ancient alien race struck, waging a two-year war with Earth's survivors. Having lost, humankind scattered, waiting for the day to reclaim their planet. 

Reho, a young, survival-hardened man wandering the Blastlands of Usona, searches for redemption as he teams up with a motley merchant crew on their way to deliver OldWorld GPS devices to New Afrika. Haunted by his past, Reho must discover the truth about his own origins while thrown headfirst into a war that will not only alter his future, but the future of all humankind.

Just all around coolness!

It was like reading a narrative of awesome platform games like BORDERLANDS and FALLOUT with all manner of fun badassery and action. Solid writing, fluid pacing, and great plot elements, this seriously is a must-read for readers AND video gamers.

I enjoyed it so much that I put a second copy on my personal Kindle Keyboard, so I can re-read it again when more books come out. I always do this for all the book series I deeply enjoy, reading each and every book from the start before getting to the latest publication... and REHO has joined that very small, elite status shared by very few authors.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great post-apocalyptic read July 31, 2014
By Jack D
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed Red Denver, the prelude to this book, so I wasn't disappointed by REHO and it was nice to have a full-length story because D.L.Denham is a great writer with a real fluidity, snappiness and edge to his prose. REHO was truly a superb read, highly original and entertaining, which I think it has the makings of a great trilogy and something that would adapt easily to the big screen. The editing was particularly well done and the formatting perfect for my Kindle. I am looking forward to the next two books already.

This was a very cool take on the post-apocalyptic thing with great cities and backgrounds that keep things fresh throughout the story. Good mix of story, suspense, and action to boot. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding post-apocalyptic sci-fi August 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved Denham's previous instalment, Red Denver, and so I got to reading REHO with great anticipation. It did not disappoint. The first thing to mention is that the writing quality is near flawless and brings to mind the likes of Frank Herbert. (A comment I would not make lightly.) On the one hand this could be considered your typical post-apocalyptic fare, however, everything from the pacing to the structure to the characterisation to the world building is done to such a high standard that you will not want the book to end. It seems strange that the most nightmarish of scenarios are, in literary terms, the most fun. And whether it be in the humorous moments or in the dark moments, 'fun' is the best word to some up this reading experience. It reminded me a lot of my time spent playing the videogame: Fallout 3, and it's fair to say fans of that game will feel right at home here.

I recommend downloading both Red Denver and REHO, and losing yourself in D. L. Denham's world.

Intricate world building and non-stop adventure make for an exciting, dynamic ride. An intriguing, original blend of the post-apocalyptic genre with cyberpunk tropes. As Reho travels with his friends across New Afrika, each city they visit feels fresh and unique and informed by the writer's background in history. The alien invaders add a new wrinkle to this type of story and cast a large shadow over the proceedings. Recommended for fans of action and trippy scifi.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Hooked! September 6, 2014
I am not usually a fan of science fiction, but this book is the exception to my rule. It kept me very interested -- I was tempted more than once to turn to the last few pages of the book to find out how it ends! I am looking forward to the next books in this series. I am hooked on Reho!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great sci-fi adventure September 12, 2014
By Kyra
Format:Kindle Edition
In a world ravaged by nuclear war and taken over by opportunistic aliens called Hegemon, Reho survives. Unlike other humans, he has the ability to withstand high levels of radiation, pain and injury. He can heal at an amazing rate and is stronger than the normal man. What he doesn't know is that his survival skills are about to be tested.

REHO is a science fiction, thriller, adventure mash-up, with a solid plot and even more solid characters. While none truly stood out as noteworthy, we can see that all of Reho's new-found comrades-in-arms have strengths and weaknesses, making them much more multi-faceted than your average side characters. I am expecting much more in the way of development and character arcs in the next book as more is revealed about each character, and was slightly dissappointed that the book didn't create more of a personality in Reho.

However, this was a very plot-driven book, and the way everything was laid out was rather clever. At first the story seems a little bit lost, and this actually echoes Reho as a main character to some extent, as the story begins to take a direction as soon as he figured out what on earth he is doing. It soon find quite an unexpected and intersting direction and really runs with it, revealing a more complex plot than originally thought. At first there was no clear threat, but as the book progressed and you learnt more about the Hegemon, you realise that they are, of course, the enemy, but you also realise the part they play in Reho's life, which is fascinating. In some places the plot could be a little bit slow and information-heavy but in others it moved very fast through action sequences.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! August 6, 2014
By Aly
Format:Kindle Edition
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

Throughout Reho, we get the past and necessary information when it's needed. And it isn't told in a way that makes it seem as if it's the author trying to find a way to convey this information while staying in character. Instead it's done in a storytelling way by one of the characters or when Reho goes on a mental ramble. The information feels as if it's naturally coming to us and not just because we need it. I enjoyed that aspect of Reho. It was very well done.

Oh, and the writing was very attention grabbing. I was debating on whether I would read and review Reho but when I read the first few pages, I had to keep reading or else I would have been driving myself to madness wondering what was going on. It grabbed my attention and it held it for the most part throughout the book.

The future Earth and everything about it including the invading aliens were all imaginatively created. It was interesting to compare and contrast this new Earth with our Earth. It's not much different in some ways and yet in others it feels foreign. But I think that's what made things interesting. The fact that while it's familiar in a few, and yet there's more to discover about this new Earth.

I'm also going to give you a bit of warning. Throughout the book, the pace keeps going faster and faster until it slides right over a cliff. The ending was well played and I find myself wanting to read more of D.L. Denham's work just to find out what happened and how everything will play out. So, well played Mr. Denham, well played.

The world of Reho is very much dog eat dog, or at least Reho's world seems to be that way. So if you like action, than you are sure to like Reho. Reho was released on July 31st, so you should go check it out, preview a bit if you'd like to and than purchase it.
