Edward Crichton, a native Clevelander, lives in Chicago, Illinois with his wife, where he spends his time coming to grips with his new found sports allegiances. A long time enthusiast of Science Fiction, Fantasy, History and everything in between, he spends his time reading, writing, and overusing his Xbox.
Until recently, Crichton had often hoped for a cat, but his wife decided to let him have a baby boy instead. Due in November of 2013, he and his wife could not be more excited.
His Sci-Fi epic Starfarer: Rendezvous with Destiny, was released in April of 2013, and the latest book in his Praetorian Series: A Hunter and His Legion, was released in September of 2013. Crichton hopes to spend a few months bonding with his wife and newborn child before getting back into writing, but he still hopes to release his next book in the fall of 2014.

So I am the first to dare write a review?! Smashworld is not even in my mother language and the subject deserve precise understanding of what I am feeling.
Finish with the indians-and-trappers, oh, sorry, SEALS and pretorians slaughters. The book is not SF either, if you understand "SF" as building a story around an existing and exciting Science perception. It's fantasy, and I never was very interested in hard-core fantasy. (Now why did I purchase the Praetorien Series? Because it is fun to reading it, anyway).
But I was not able to stop reading until the end, except sleeping times, eat, work etc. I just could not stop.
Remark: the praetorien series is not written for the youth. I found myself looking up lots of words, and learning more of them which are not explained in the dictionaries (biggrin).
So what is different with volume III? It is dealing with the person, Soul, destiny and responsible, self-reliant action. Let me guess that the author progressed from writing something for entertainment to writing something to express his life experience. And he does ist with always better artisan skill. As I had stated above, I could not stop reading.
For me personally, this series was quite fateful. I am part of a community of persons impaired in communication (Asperger Syndrome). What came into my sense after reading Vol. III, was, that I could point out to somebody with big problems, that the problems are ALL and ANY within himself, his personality, and that God or whoever gave him the capability to overcome his problems. I believe the author communicated a tiny bit of his experience in life and it came very conveniently to fill in a gap in what I sought for a solution :-) .
Hope, the last Volume (as the author is promising vor IV) will be available soon :-) .
Watch the author.
