Editorial Reviews


This is definitely a science fiction series to be explored, and one that women in particular might enjoy. - Examiner

I should complain to the author, though. I read the book until 4 in the morning on two consecutive nights, wiping me out for work at 9. I just could not put it down. - Sci/fi & Fantasy Reviews

Eller shows that no matter how torn we are between what life offers and what we want, that is no excuse not to do our best. - Conversations Book Club

More About the Author

Mark Eller spent twenty years happily writing stories and then throwing them away. Then he met his future wife. She got mad about him throwing things away so he then happily began writing books, publishing his shorts, and creating audiofiction podcasts, including The Hell Hole Tavern, Mercy Bend, and Traitor book one of the Turner Chronicles. He can be found most days sitting in his man cave with his fingers busy typing because new stories are constantly running through his head.

In all fairness, the premise is interesting. The main protagonist is a little too much of an anti-hero, a Thomas Covenant with a slightly better attitude. The writing is good, the characters are fairly well developed. but...i will not be reading the next two books because:

Spoilers follow. ************************************************* spoilers

1. The character of Cathy. Abruptly, and completely out of character, marries an abusive man and has a sudden change in personality with a very poor explanation by the "author" of why she made a move that was too stupid to be done by a very intelligent and, until that point, quite together woman. the move was too out of character to be believable with no obvious reason why the author would have her do it. it does appear that the main purpose of most of the book is to continue time after time to clobber the character of Aaron so that by the end of the book he has had more agony and heartbreak then a hundred people. the only reason i can see for the author to take a super intelligent, responsible, mature young woman and have her marry a brute is because the main character, Aaron is in love with Cathy. oh, wait, he's not allowed any lasting happiness so let's just have this woman do something that even women of much less qualities wouldn't do. it was like hilary clinton marrying newt gingrich. it did not work.

2. Killing off a wonderful character who was in it from almost page one killed any interest i had in reading the next books. for me, once i've invested a certain amount of time in a highly sympathetic character, follow the character almost the entire way through the book and then have her killed off i just don't want to bother reading anymore.

Aaron Turner is everyman. Well, that is if everyman has the power and talent to transfer to another world. So far he is one of two people who have that power and it seem they both are working for a man who wants to take over the other world. The world they live in now is polluted and corrupt. As Aaron learns to live in the small town in the otherworld, he finds that he is a nice man who really can come to like himself and fall in love.

He has a problem, however, he goes back to his first world to get supplies and make reports to the General. In the old world he is a crippled man who is made fun of and hates coming back. So he lies about what is happening in the new world.

The lies grow bigger as the tension builds between Aaron, his general, and the Federal government. Aaron does not want to work for this world anymore and figures out how to do that. But then he finds he has an arch-enemy in the new world. Life there is not as good as he thought it would be, it is always presenting challenges.

Mark Eller has made his characters believable and likeable. His scenarios are well described and I can imagine myself in them. I laugh and cry with Aaron as he finds his way in his new world and really look forward to the next Turner Chronicles adventure. Bravo, Mark.

It was a good read I had a hard time putting down. The characters are good and develop some. The story is pretty good. One thing I laughed at every time is how it seemed the author wrote some scenes and situations based on his fantasy. By fantasy I mean harem novel where it seems that every important woman is a strong, hot, sex ready Amazon. Don't take this the wrong way, it is good and actually ties into the story. BTW I am a guy, which is why I recognized some of my own fantasy with women moments in it. For a free read, I recommend it.

There were a lot of things I wouldn't care for normally in this book, but the author does a fantastic job of putting all those mediocre bits together to weave an amazing tale. The lazy main character that does nothing to prevent future situations from arising. His high morals that absolutely forbids him from doing anything untword. His constant inner monologue of self pity. I think you get the point; but mister Eller does a fine job of making those things palletable.

A good author should be able to pass his emotion to you and really make you feel and oh boy does mister Elmer do that. The antagonists are incredibly evil and malevolent; they are some of the most cruel people you can possibly imagine. The scenes with the fightining are intensely vivid, gorey, gritty. In my opinion one of the highlights of the entire book.

Throughout reading the book I actually felt disconcerted and felt a sense of wrongness. Its something hard to explain but mister Elmer really gave the book atmosphere and character. Well done I'll surely be reading the next few books, and looking forward to reading the upcoming Helmet plot line.

This book is one of my favorite books I've read over the last year. It was detailed, captivating, and emotive.

In many ways, I am surprised I liked the book so much. It had many aspects that I normally dislike. The protagonist was not only an anti-hero, but in many ways, a clueless one. Despite this, he had an ability to attract women that would put Cyrano to shame. His ability to gain position and power were largely attributed by a bottomless purse that had nothing to do with him as a person. There was the constant parade of naked female bodies, yet an inability to consummate anything. The chief antagonist was some sort of super-villain with amazing powers, and the other baddies were oh so bad. The protagonist's sense of guilt was overwhelming.

These are all things that typically raise flags with me when reading. So why the five stars? Because, with one exception (that I will mention below), the author makes it all work. His skill with the written word is prodigious. I was pulled into the story, truly captivated. All those points that usually bother me in other books didn't bother me at all in this one. I was along for the ride and enjoying every minute of it. Everything seem to fit.

When I write that this book is detailed, that is an understatement. This is a long book, but it doesn't falter or drag. The pace remains quick.

Editing was good. I was not pulled out of the flow by typos and poor grammar.

The one part that jarred me, though, was the naked women/no sex aspect. This was slightly juvenile, unbelievable, and dragged on too long. This is probably my only criticism, though. As a whole, I really loved the book.
