From the Author
The adventures of Oren and Clementine go well beyond the concept of good versus evil. These resilient characters, whom I've grown to love, come to discover that while we are certainly shaped by the circumstances of our lives, we are not defined by them.
I enjoyed every minute of writing this book, and it is my hope that others will enjoy every minute of reading it.

Forced to grow up young, Oren and Clementine, are strong and filled with desire to right the wrongs in the world. They embark on separate quests than eventually intertwine while being hunted by the cruel Ministry from their city of New Arcadia. Their journey may bring them together, but they will be faced with hardships, betrayal, mysterious and never ending secrets and at times almost certain death. Will these two friends survive?
Final Rating: 5 Stars
The story flows at a torrid pace. I was breathless at times, exhilarated at others. I kept saying to myself, just one more page but I was unable to stop even at the end of the chapters. The rich characters are easy to relate to, like friends you are proud to know for who they are and how they live their lives.
This book is a home run that I will share with the youth in my life and my fellow fantasy fans. I look forward to book II. Thank-you.
In a post Apocalyptic world, people live in domed cities ruled by the Patriarch with a Ministry that controls every aspect of their lives. Oren has lived with his family without problems until he is at the time in his life where his future will be decided for him. Oren's life changes when his family are targeted by the Ministry, but with the help of a stranger, Khalil, he manages to escape. Oren quickly learns that everything he thought about the Ministry, society and the outside world were not true. With the help of Lahlil Oren accepts a new his new role a student as he faces new dangers he never dreamed of. Oren left behind his best friend Clem without any chance of telling her what happened. Back at New Arcadia things have become more dangerous forcing Clem to take on a job that forced her to run for her life with information that could change everything.
This was an incredible futuristic adventure with unique and compelling characters. The visual descriptions of the outside world as seen trough Oren's eyes brought it to life for the reader. Clem is a very creative and inventive individual takes upon seemingly impossible challenges and finds unique ways to overcome the odds. Some secrets were revealed, but the fight has just begun leaving the reader wondering how it will end. I for one can't wait until the second book in The Aeternum Chronicles.
I first wanted to congratulate the author on the superb way of describing the world setting of this novel. The foundation of a good book is in its backstory and descriptive picturesque lyrical writing. The author successfully ticked all of the boxes to make a really fantastic story. The plot may not have been as original if you read many fantasy novels, but because it was written so well, it did not matter.
The layout and the paragraphs were smoothly connected to each other. There was a back and forth setting with the story where the author would move from the past to the current and then back to the past, just to add moments and backstory to the plot. I have read this style done in a different format with other books, and it normally is a hit or a miss with the reader. In my case, if anything, it made me even more eager in wanting to now what’s going to happen next.
I recommend this book to people that like reading fantasy novels and appreciate a good storyline.
