Editorial Reviews

Review

"The story is a balls-to-walls roller-coaster with a few weird twists thrown in for good measure...If your science fiction tends to the Independence Day-Mad Max part of the spectrum, this is going to be a fun trip. The next two books should be a great read." - Sacramento Book Review

"The story was unique and a lot of fun. I look forward to seeing what the author has in store for Vincent and his group of rebels in the next book." - Feathered Quill Book Reviews

"Plenty of action and characters that are real enough for us to have genuine concern for them. '7 Scorpions: Rebellion' is the first book in a new trilogy and I'm looking forward to catching up with Vincent and his group of rebels in the second book, '7 Scorpions: Revolution.'" - Marty Shaw, Reader Views

7 Scorpions Rebellion is a novel set in an apocalyptic world ruled by the Zodiac who brought the end of civilization in one day. Although the novel never directly explains how the Zodiac did bring about the end, it is implied that he worked behind the scenes to enact his plan. The ideas of the erosion of civil liberties, justice for those in power or with wealth, the rise of domestic terrorism all feature prominently in the novel. What's scary is that such concerns are a reality now and the subtle implications of such things helping the Zodiac scared me. This novel actually scared me, and I can't say that with hardly any books out there. When a writer is able to elicit such strong emotions from the reader, it speaks volume to the piece of work the author has constructed and is commendable as well as entertaining.

Regarding the characters, none of them can be categorized as a cliche. Vincent, aka Night Viper, is one of the main characters and is a superhuman soldier. One might expect such a character to be moody or dark, Vincent is neither. He is a dynamic individual who expresses emotion just like any of the other characters. He doesn't believe himself better or superior than anyone: he's simply a product of what's happened to him. Lexi, on the other hand, acts like she's a superhuman and she doesn't even have any powers (except for not feeling fear). Despite her limitations, especially when working with Vincent, Lexi shows confidence and courage.

Even the 'evil' or 'bad' characters are not one dimensional beings. Commander Jade has committed atrocities and is the very definition of sinister, but we learn this was a woman horribly abused in her life and who is really far from the evil commander she displayed herself to be.

When I had purchased 7 Scorpions Rebellion, It was my first Science Fiction novel and I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. But after reading it, I realized this is definitely a genre I can stick to. So before I tell about the story and characters a little bit, I'd like to congratulate Mike on a well written and entertaining novel. Great Job! Now, into the story.

On May 7th, an event named the Flash Storm devastated the world when it destroyed every major city and military base on the planet. However, this wasn't a natural disaster, it was caused by the new ruler named Zodiac. A powerful and evil man who sometimes claims that his Flash Storm was for the better, as it eliminated the majority of the corruption. Due to the disastrous event, the world is plunged into complete chaos and hope less than dwindles on a thin string. Zodiac's Grand Army, made up of human slaves in special suit's are seemingly unstoppable and a rebel rebellion seems impossible. All until a small group make's it's appearance and gives new hope to the remaining of mankind. Vincent, a powerful and tough man who has a thing for killing Seekers and spreading hope. Alexis, who I call the woman version of Vincent, is a fearless and impressive sidekick who I think sub conciously spreads just as much hope. And Josh, a computer geek who is too smart for you not to have confidence in. And these three, seem to be gathering an army of their own, quietly and effectively.

This book doesn't just give you a one character point of view, but actually a lot of character's point of view. And Mike write's it so well that it doesn't bother you because you're forming relationship's with characters that help's establish emotion and concern for them. Vital importance when writing a series like Mike.

For those who grew up on Sci-Fi movies... stories... novels and are looking for something new, original, and exciting... then this is the book you are looking for!
Remember the shock and surprise when Vader turned out to be Luke's dad... For the 80s, that was a unique WOW that all other sci-fi stories set their standards by... this book will be setting new levels of expectations for the years to come...
The author got the idea for the story all from him dreams....
Using real locations set to back drops familiar to us all with a unique Sci-Fi twist that will keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting more... AND THERE WILL BE. This is book 1 of 3!

Check out the author's site...

I definitely recommend this purchase.

I just finished reading 7 Scorpions rebellion and the only problem I have with it is,I have to wait till sometime in the spring to get the second installment.This book was very well written with likable characters.Vincent of course is my favorite,he's like a futuristic cross between spiderman with his sixth sense,wolverine with his healing abilities,and Flash with his super speed.Can't wait to read book two.For anyone reading the reviews,I highly recommend the book.Mike Saxton is an up and coming great!

I am normally an extremely picky reader. Very rarely am I able to pick up a book and NEVER put it down. 7 Scorpions: Rebellion was a book that I just could not stop reading. Mr. Saxton's attention to detail with the environment and character development are amazing. Being from Connecticut it was really easy to instantly visually the locations that are mentioned in the book such as Southern Connecticut State University and Backus Hospital, but for the reader who doesn't know these locations the descriptions can place you right there. The character development is one that is driven by each characters motive and drive and really gives you the feel that the characters are coming to life in front of you instead of behaving like they are in a B rate Movie and you can guess there moves four pages ahead of time. It creates a a drive of what will happen next, and have you guessing as to how the characters will responded and react with each other. It was been said in other reviews that fans of Star Wars will like this series. I fully agree and would add to that if you were a fan of futuristic weaponry such as the flying hunter-killers (Flying HKs) from the Terminator series you will also be rewarded as Mr. Saxton has created such new age weapons that are just as interesting as the plot.
