What others are saying about ANGEL RISING, by Dirk Flinthart…
Flinthart’s prose is rich in historical details of clothing, mores, and weaponry, bringing the samurais of ancient Japan alive. The story is a seamless blend of the steampunk setting of the mainlanders and the samurais of the island, who lean toward cyber technology. Flinthart also delivers superb fight scenes. Populated by three-dimensional characters, Angel Rising is an adventure that explores the concept of duty and the narrow line between right and wrong.
