2.0 out of 5 stars I Wanted to Like This..., March 21, 2016
I saw this would be over the top purple-prose fantasy, and I'm all for that. But while the story isn't terrible, it's very much a cookie cutter "Earth nerd loser becomes fantasy hero" thing, and the editing is just *atrocious.* For God's sake, who says "ya?" Or "com'on?" And over and over and OVER!

No, I struggled through to the end, but I won't be looking for any more books by this author, and unless you're okay with ungrammatical, badly spelled, mushmouthed prose, I'd recommend you not even start this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, But a Bit of a Steamroll, February 1, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This was a fun little urban fantasy romp (with divergence to regular ol' fantasy) but despite what happens to one of the main characters at the end, it didn't seem very balanced. People and actions seem to be introduced to check boxes, and you can always tell whether a character is good or bad by whether they comply with the political and social preferences of the protagonist. The ending felt less like "dramatic reversal" and more like "Oh crap this character's a total Gary Stu, I better do something."

Anyway, if you like stories where these are the bad people, and you kill them, and these are the good people, and you cheer for them, this is eminently readable, and the dialogue is snappy and fun and only occasionally self-congratulatory. If it were on KU, I'd recommend it. As it isn't and you have to pay... well, consider whether you'd have the same reaction I did. If you're more forgiving, go for it.

This review is from: Daemon (Kindle Edition)
Loved it. Might be a bit technical and/or intricate if you're not a computer geek, but great story, chillingly plausible. Could this be Scott Alexander's "Moloch" in fictional form?

Comic-booky prose, an interesting power, and a lot of fun to read. Liked it a lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars What It Says On The Tin, December 20, 2015
It is what it is, and it is not a bad example of what it is. If you're on KU, totally worth a read. Price is a bit steep if you're buying, but it's readable and enjoyable. If you like this sort of thing, this is the sort of thing you will like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and fun., December 13, 2015
This book is a wild ride with barely a pause as the hero leaps from one precarious situation to the next. A bit rough in spots, but while Daniel powers his way through all obstacles there's always enough of a chance he won't make it to keep you on the edge of your seat. Highly recommended for fans of adult heroic fantasy.

While there are some awkwardly phrased bits here and there, this is fun little book with an actually story as well as hot sex scenes. Definitely worth checking out.

This review is from: Team Omega (Kindle Edition)
Going places even The Authority might fear to tread, the superhuman adversaries of this book are all the more engaging because they are so believable... And even sympathetic. The insoluble problems that the emergence of true super-powered beings would cause are explored here with remarkable insight and realism. Despite a few minor production errors, the book is hard to put down. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sort of In-Between., October 11, 2015
This was not bad, but it felt like the author couldn't decide what kind of book he wanted to write, and none of the three main story lines really went anywhere satisfying before the book ended. One cliffhanger, fine. Three, that just feels sort of lazy.

Worth reading, and I'll check out the next one on KU, but absent some resolution that'll be that for the series.
