Review

By Diana L (TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
There are some books that reel me in fast and in this case, it wasn't one book but a series of three. It was nice having all three books so that my reading continued seamlessly.
The writing flows smoothly and what I liked best was this is not a cookie cutter read. Sometimes when I read a series, I find one of the books is a weaker read and leaves me a bit disappointed but that was not the case with this series. It was a smooth read from start to finish - but I do hope to see books 4, 5 and 6. I was impressed.

About the Author

I'm a retired Federal Firefighter from Naval Air Station on Whidbey Island in Washington State, USA. While I lived on the island, I was fortunate to meet a famous horror writer named Hugh B. Cave, who became my mentor. Sadly, he passed away before I published my first novel, Dead Energy.

In 2001 my wife was diagnosed with terminal cancer and wanted to see me published before she passed away. I'll never forget her smile when that first sample paperback arrived, but three months later she was gone. I became deeply depressed after losing my soul mate and stopped writing. Two years later, I retired from the Fire Department.

My depression lasted for eight years and I drank heavily, and then one day a stranger read an old copy of Dead Energy and thought I should start writing again. It was just the encouragement I needed at just the right moment. The next day I quit drinking and began rewriting Dead Energy with a new ending as the start of the Alex Cave Series. I re-published Dead Energy in Nov. 2013, and began writing episode 2, Cold Energy, published in Jan. 2014, and episode 3, Red Energy, published in June 2014.

Now I live in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, with a wonderful view from my writing desk.

Format: Kindle Edition
The Alex Cave Energy Saga box set book 4 by James Corkill is a ripper of an environmentalist trilogy. Each book is a full length saga with the binding thread of Alex Cave who has friends in high places and knows how to look after himself. Corkill also shows a human side of Alex as he struggles with his relations with his father and niece and nephew. There are interesting characters like Wesley, an old timer who knows his mountain and when it is in upheaval. Alex is the geologist they turn to when things start going seriously wrong, He's also good friends with Okana and together they work on defeating the enemy who have found alien devices to clean up the world, amongst other things. Then we are taken to Area 51 and a couple of spaceships turn up. And there's a time traveler. A great read.

There are some books that reel me in fast and in this case, it wasn’t one book but a series of three.

I don’t do spoilers but I will clue readers in that book two on the series does have a cliff hanger. It was nice having all three books so that my reading continued seamlessly.

The writing flows smoothly and what I liked best was this is not a cookie cutter read. The author added to the story, changed the story and sometimes took us down a totally different road than the one we expected.

The characters are well developed and there was a consistent attention to detail throughout the series. Sometimes when I read a series, I find one of the books is a weaker read and leaves me a bit disappointed but that was not the case with this series. It was a smooth read from start to finish – but I do hope to see books 4, 5 and 6.

From Alaska to polar vortexes to Yellowstone Park, the author kept me intrigued. It did take discipline not to jump ahead more than a few times as I was eager to find out what would happen next.

If you are looking for a solid read that gives you a good mix of suspense, action and detail overlaid with sci-fi – this is a series that you’ll want to read. You could buy the books one at a time but I think you’ll appreciate being able to continue reading when you reach the end of 1 and 2 versus having to go back and purchase each book one by one.

Corkill is a gifted author with a knack for telling ultra-cool stories- I was impressed.

I was given a free copy of this book set to give a honest review. I was looking forward to this book set because of the storyline, fuel disappearing and aliens, but I was disappointed. I found the writing to be very ordinary and was reminded of watching an artist using a paint- by- numbers template. There was no atmosphere to the story and I found myself skimming through quite a few pages, as I found the writing style boring.

James Corkill mixes the genres of spy thriller, natural disaster, science fiction, and action hero with splendor and fun. Grab your popcorn as all three books set out to entertain you at a breakneck speed! Alex Cave makes for a great hero who makes mistakes but triumphs with help from his friends.
