More About the Author

Visit me at jsmorin.com

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.

A very complex story. At first I was afraid it would take too much concentration for an enjoyable read but when I got into it the author's talent took over and the story flowed.
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.

This review is written by Scott Sammons, Christina's husband using her account (as are most reviews in her name) the opinions and faults in grammar, spelling or punctuation are mine alone,

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.

Okay, I'll try to do this without any spoilers. First of all, while there are some crossover characters from the author's first series, you do not have to read that series first to jump right into this one - Mad Tinker's Daughter is a fantastic book on its own and promises to be an amazing series.

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.

My favorite J.S. Morin book to date, and I LOVED the original Twinborn Trilogy! I'm not sure if it's the steampunk-y vibe, the grittiness or that I just always loved rooting for the underdog, but I was really sad when I was done reading this book. Thankfully the next one should be out soon! It's a bit shorter than previous works but that doesn't detract from the story. There is less exposition and more story in this book so we get to the action almost straight away. NOTE: You do not have to have previously read the Twinborn Trilogy to enjoy this book. It stands on it's own just fine. However, it's sort of the same universe, but focusing on different places. So if you have read the Twinborn Trilogy it will add another layer of understanding to the reading of this book.

Having read Firehurler, I understood the meaning of "twin-born" right away, but I suspect a first-time reader might be very confused for a while. The book puts too much emphasis on plot development, at the expense of character development. I know that I should care about Madlin/Rynn/Chipmunk, and I do, but more from curiosity than from engagement. Her father makes a much more interesting character. Perhaps this is why I'm not sure that I agree with her decisions and actions at the end. Also, I don't know why, but I don't fully like or trust Jamile. And usually I lean toward healers.

A good enough story. I liked it but did not love it though it kept my interest. I did wonder how the mad tinker got so mad.

This is an entertaining piece of writing that suffers from a weak ending engendered to allow a sequel. I enjoyed reading it and found it creative and imaginative; it just suffered from not concluding as well as it could.
