More About the Author
I am a creator of worlds and a destroyer of words. As a fantasy writer, my works range from traditional epics to futuristic fantasy with starships. I have worked as an unpaid Little League pitcher, a cashier, a student library aide, a factory grunt, a cubicle drone, and an engineer--there is some overlap in the last two.
Through it all, though, I was always a storyteller. Eventually I started writing books based on the stray stories in my head, and people kept telling me to write more of them. Now, that's all I do for a living.
I enjoy strategy, worldbuilding, and the fantasy author's privilege to make up words. I am a gamer, a joker, and a thinker of sideways thoughts. But I don't dance, can't sing, and my best artistic efforts fall short of your average notebook doodle. When you read my books, you are seeing me at my best.
My ultimate goal is to be both clever and right at the same time. I have it on good authority that I have yet to achieve it.

Basically everyone is two people. You are one person when awake, then when you sleep you become another person on another world. I though that would be annoying to the reader but after the first couple of chapters it flowed enough to keep me interested in the story until the end.
Loved all the inventions.
It is very rare for me to write a five star review. With the vast number of poorly written texts that have instantly garnered lavish reviews, I have raised the bar on my own criticism and rate all titles on the same standard, be it from a first time independent author or a classic from a large publishing house, all consume the same amount of time and memory space be it organic or digital. By any standard J.S. Morin's "Mad Tinker Chronicles" is excellent. I have purchased all of Morin's work published to date after being introduced through a free offer of "Mad Tinker's Daughter". These books have been excellent with innovative and compelling storytelling and a minimum of rehashing of previously presented material in the interest of making stand alone stories. I would love for the books to be longer since I rarely down load anything less than 300 pages, that said these stories are nicely complete and satisfying.
I truly expect to find copies of these books to be popular and being sold fifty years in the future since they have all of the elements to stand the test of time. I can offer no higher praise.
We heard about Cadmus Errol aka the Mad Tinker of Tellurak in the original Twinborn Trilogy. Now we get to meet his daughter Madlin and their respective twins Erefan and Rynn who live deep underground in the city of Eversall Deep in the brand new world of Korr where humans are kept as slaves. By day, Rynn is a free human cleaning girl but by night, she becomes "Chipmunk" a guerrilla warrior fighting for human freedom. Erefan is a slave, but his sharp mind for tinkering is put to use by his owner to create great things.
I was a little bit skeptical at first thinking that there's no way the author could beat his first series. I was wrong. For all of those that thought the Twinborn Trilogy was long on description and short on action, pick up this book immediately! The action is pretty much non-stop from beginning to end with a cliffhanger that will keep you in suspense and possibly make you just a little bit mad that the rest of the series isn't out yet.
For all of you that loved the vivid descriptions and world building of the first series - pick up this book immediately! We get to see more of Tellurak - and the new world, Korr, just jumps of the pages (well, ok, screen) to create some really stunning visuals of an almost steampunk underground civilization.
Overall, I loved this book and I can't wait for the next one.

3.5/5 I enjoyed the start to this series, but the book was uneven. With characters in twin worlds, the biggest issues was that I cared a lot more about one world than another, and... Read morePublished 8 months ago by Adam M.
