About the Author

Best Selling author, screenwriter, and developer for Blizzard Entertainment, EA Games, and Chair Entertainment -- Cameron Dayton has charted flights through the worlds of Warcraft, Diablo, Starcraft, Undertow, Advent Rising, Minions Paradise and beyond. 

Etherwalker, Cameron's debut novel, is a genre-bending science fiction and fantasy adventure for the young adult, adult, and discriminating cyborg reader. Cameron weaves all of the dynamic action and vivid world building of those hit video games into a dystopian & post-apocalyptic future where a technological singularity has thrown mankind spiraling back into its medieval past for an altogether awesome alternative history. 

Etherwalker has all the hallmarks of a truly epic fantasy, with the pacing of a techno thriller. It is a colorful journey filled with swords, sorcery, monsters, mayhem and metaphysical fantasy.

Format: Kindle Edition
An impressive debut novel from the author of one of my favorite short stories, which I think fans of the sci-fi and heroic quest genres are sure to enjoy. The story revolves around Enoch, the last of a once powerful race of technomancers as he seeks his destiny amidst the post-apocalyptic ruins of a high-tech earth. Along the way he encounters a host of delightfully imaginative biologically-tailored and cybernetically-enhanced terrors that inhabit the world of the Silicon Covenant.

I thought the pacing was good, action was great, and the characters were memorable. I particularly liked Ric the undead ex-rock & roller from a long forgotten era. At times the world-building felt a little forced, but I suspect it is because the author has a much larger story planned for us, of which this is but the opening act. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next.

I've been reading sci-fi and fantasy for many years and found it an altogether enjoyable read.

Ok I'm a nerd, so I'm biased when reading science fiction and fantasy, but I really enjoyed this book. It started out a bit slow, but the way the author built suspension as the plot marched forward, and the way the characters unfolded, it felt more like enjoying a long, three course meal than just waiting an hour to be seated (I like food too). While some reviewers felt that the 'monsters' and world felt too much like a video game, I really enjoyed the fresh take on what makes a monster, the way nanotechnology fused with runaway, radiation-infused biology and genetic engineering; it took the trite, conventional monster and genetically-engineered human/cyborg and combined them into something that felt unique, and I think gives the author leeway into more creativity. At first I felt like the main characters abilities, while exciting, we're fairly limiting in a world that seemed to teem with characters much more powerful, but by the end of the book it felt like there was a lot of potential to go in some exciting directions. I also like the fact that the author didn't make the main character too powerful, I feel like there was a good balance maintained. Overall there was enough plot revealed to be interesting, with enough mystery to make me anxious to find out more in the next book. The action was plentiful enough that I didn't get bored, and I enjoyed the balance of raw, physicality and mental ability. While I would have rated it a 4 star book a quarter of the way through, by the end I'm just desperately wishing the sequel were out already!

A excellent book, cannot wait for the sequel. The story was a refreshing blend of scifi and fantasy elements set in the far off future. a distant future where "the bombs have already fallen and a bit of magic has returned to the land". Although in this far flung adventure much of the "magic" is the product of remnants of long forgotten technology.

Fans of diverse mythologies such as the vampire hunter D novels and movies, as well as adventure time should find this book enjoyable!

Strong writing, compelling characterization, and a unique perspective on technological apocalypse combine to tell an intriguing version of sword and sorcery with a modern twist. Worth the price of admission.

This is a look at what advanced science and bio-engineering might accomplish - looked at from a future after it all blew up in peoples' faces.
The main character is one of the last descendants of the people blamed for it all, rescued as a babe and raised far from any remaining technology by the Blademaster bodyguard of his parents, and I found it interesting that he apparently exhibited many traits found in people with autism.
When some of his unique mind talents concerning machinery surface during adolescence, an AI developed by his progenitors, that turned its focus to the systematic genocide of its creators, is alerted to his existence, and unleashes the forces at its disposal to hunt him down.

The story concepts and characters were interesting, but I found the pacing a bit uneven, especially during the latter half of the story, when it sometimes became hard to figure out whose PoV we were reading.
Also not a big fan of the quotes that precede some of the chapters. Instead of adding to the story, I found them disruptive more often than intriguing.

Beautifully bizarre and complex, unlike anything you have ever read before! The book takes place hundreds (or thousands) years into the future after our society had created new breakthroughs of technology lead by the Etherwalkers, a group of people with an incredible mathematical brilliant minds that can telepathically communicate with machines. But a great schism occurred and left the planet torn as people reverted back into the dark ages. As some races had developed advances in bio genetic engineering a new host of interesting animals exist, as well as modified humans, though now they act as if they were in the middle ages, living upon the left overs of a forgotten age.

One of the most interesting aspects is the main hero seems to be autistic, and the author does an amazing job of describing his mind, how he can analyze mass amounts of data into patterns but also gets very confused as to jokes and other's emotions, often landing him in trouble. He is also numerously warned about thinking too much about a certain subject. One of the 1st few chapters he spent all night thinking about a board game he saw some kids playing, and his master told him its not good for people like him to think about those things because he can so easily get lost in them. Anyone, I feel, who has autism or loves someone who does will relate.

Similar to the "Eragon" books there is a lot of subtle philosophical complexities that deal with religion, mysticism and Jungian psychology, which if you study any of these I'm sure you will be happy to see them in here.

Also, empaths, you will relate to this, I did.
