J. R. Calvo, a jack of all trades, was born the youngest of three in New Haven, CT. Weaned by trekkies and Star Wars, he became infatuated with science fiction as a young pup. His obsessions extend out to James O’Barr, and anything printed in comics. Throw in some Tolkien, Goodkind, Jordan, and Sanderson and the conundrum erupted. So Calvo journeyed down the Science Fantasy path to masterpieces like Dune. He began Resonics, in response to the most powerful question, Why not? Why not pit science against ‘magic’? Who would win in a fight a mech or a jedi? However, this is merely the backdrop. Resonics is foremost about the very real people. The villains who think they’re doing what’s best, the good guys drunk on their own legends, and the robotic centaur with a heart of gold… What? You never heard that one? Come and see.

I enjoyed it. I'm curious to see where it goes and what kind of role, if any that SID and Jack play, as well as his mother. Lucky comes across an endearing character, that you can't wait to see what happens and just how he is going to find a way out of the situation. Two things I would suggest and that might have been done in other works, and maybe it's just because I tend to go into great detail with things I write, but you might want to give the reader a slightly better image of the senator's house just because I kept picturing the castle in Zelda Ocarina of Time,when you have to sneak in to see the princess and you have to slip past all the guards. So you might want to give your reader a little guidance as to where he lives, because I could also easily picture a plantation like setting or something like the mansions in New Port. Also again something that might have been explained in other works, is to give a little more back ground on Thunder Fields and why is a rolling dessert with an unexpected hermit inventor.

Great storytelling!! The explanation of the main character in his constant ridiculous situations was both unexpected as well as engaging. Give me more Lucky!
