WHAT READERS ARE SAYING
“As a fantasy fiction writer I have to admit that I am a harsher critic when it comes to novels in this genre. Books in this class I feel should be able to captivate the imagination and place you in a different realm. AEGIS RISING accomplishes that and a whole lot more. It is truly a classic in the making!” ~ Michael Beas – Bestselling Author of ‘Strump’ ~
“If you are looking for a fresh, engaging and unique YA read, this is IT! No vampires, no zombies, no dragons, no teenage love distractions; Only pure, action, adventure, intrigue, mystery, dash of sci-fi, AWESOME characters and an AMAZING plot! This is story-telling at its best. The pacing is great. It starts with a bang then slows down to build the plot and give depth to the characters, then picks up at a furious pace before slowing down slightly to develop two parallel threads and then rockets at break-neck speed to a double whammy climax, ending in a cliff-hanger! What can I say except, ’Give me book two NOW!” Jason A. Joseph
“I could easily see something like this being turned into a movie someday. Gems like this one will surprise and please you!” ~ K.S.Puckett
“This is an exceptional book that will easily fall within the same realm as other mega successful stories of teenage adventure. Would not be surprised to see this adapted into a blockbuster movie.” ~WL Johnson~
“Hold on to your seat and get ready for the ride of your life. The action scenes are incredible and epic, something I can definitely see on the big screen.” ~Amazon Reader~
