Smashwords book reviews by William Akin III

  • The Aurora City on Feb. 19, 2014

    I have read all the books on here and I must say they were fascinating. The whole mystery behind Aurora city kept me reading because I had to know what was going on. This was probably my favorite by the writer followed by fatal boarding. All the books kept me going in a similar way. As for the Cassell-Markman series, Cassiopia and Scott make such a fun combo of two different characters that mesh well together.
  • Lesson One - a short story on April 07, 2014

    Quite a wild and different read. I do not think it was that dark, but it sure did make me think about life a bit deeper. Well done I enjoyed it.
  • Frozen Dinner on May 01, 2014

    Very well done. Usually I sniff out this type of story right away, but even I was surprised. Good job.
  • The Army of the Night on May 02, 2014

    Love historical fiction like this. Fun to see what people come up with. A great one.
  • Beef Stew from Anna Lou on July 10, 2014

    Great read. The only complaint is that it was not longer to enjoy more.
  • Slocomb's Pond on July 10, 2014

    Another great work of story telling
  • Darkness Ahead: Part 2 on July 22, 2014

    Great read and interesting story on top of that. Look forward to the next part.
  • Pillar's Shadow on July 22, 2014

    Pretty wild and mysterious world ceated here. Keeps us readers trying to figure out what is going on, fun read.
  • Darkness Ahead: Part 3 on July 23, 2014

    Great Job
  • Old Man's Time on July 23, 2014

    A nice story. Could be fleshed out and more in-depth, but I enjoyed it.
  • Awakening Syndrome on July 24, 2014

    Cool read, worth taking your time to rewrite it.
  • Fading Away on July 25, 2014

    Well done, enjoyed the read.
  • Eponym on Aug. 01, 2014

    Big fan of this short story, very creative and detailed.
  • The Probe on Aug. 14, 2014

    Great message
  • Selected Short Stories Featuring Cry Wolf on Aug. 15, 2014

    Great intro to your work. I look forward to reading whole books
  • The New Zeitgeist: A Tale from the Zombie Apocalypse on Aug. 21, 2014

    Great angle
  • Out into the Void (A Short Story) on Aug. 21, 2014

    I like the idea behind the story, but it felt rushed. KInd of like I was missing scenes of a scratched DVD.
  • MW1 on Aug. 29, 2014
    (no rating)
    Pretty fun story, kept the mystery going until the end
  • Guardian Angel on Aug. 29, 2014

    Great ideas, story lines and characters, but seems like a rough draft.Going to 4 star it for its potential and being a fun sci-fi story which there isnt enough of.
  • Voyage of the Dead (Book One: Sovereign Spirit Saga) on Sep. 05, 2014

    Wild Zombie story. WIll have to look into the rest of them.
  • The Chronicles of Burntown, Pt. 1 on Oct. 01, 2014

    Pretty cool read for parts one and two. Seems to have stopped writing the series after that. Interesting characters especially being from the country myself.
  • Immunosupression on Oct. 10, 2014

    Fun ZA story. It could be turned into something bigger with the two interesting main characters if the author wanted, but still is a satisfying read as is.
  • Cure: Book One in the Strandville Zombie Series on Oct. 16, 2014

    That was pretty thrilling and intense. The descriptions of the gruesome scenes and zombies made me feel like I was there. I read this in one day which goes to show I couldnt stop.
  • A Dream of Hope and Sorrow - Book One of the Druid Saga on Oct. 28, 2014

    If I could I would give this ten stars. It was a beautifully crafted story with engaging characters and everything flowed perfectly. I look forward to reading more.
  • Godship on Nov. 04, 2014

    Started off interesting, but slowly faded as the story went on. I was waiting for some kind of twist or interesting event to happen. It didnt.
  • Surviving the Fog on Nov. 06, 2014

    An engaging story with many different interesting characters. The fact of the matter is you can put differing groups of people together cut off from the world and get many different outcomes. I enjoyed the poking around at social norms too. This was an interesting take. Sure it could use an editor, but still a fun story.
  • Fear and Aggression on Jan. 06, 2015

    This book makes one really contemplate the human race, our psychology, beliefs, and actions. If we were the first race into space and found a weaker race what would happen? Even the ending makes one question everything even more.
  • Fireflies on Jan. 07, 2015

    Enjoyed the stories and first time look into these authors. Good first look into their writing.
  • From Out of the Dark on Jan. 15, 2015

    One story was horrible, but the rest were quite fun reads. The ideas and imaginations behind them are quite fascinating tales. Although some feel like the ending is rushed, I still enjoyed them.
  • Raised by the Fox on Feb. 04, 2015

    Some pretty interesting short stories
  • Squatter's Rights on March 03, 2015

    I enjoyed this story of first contact and discovery. It seemed quite realistic in one way meeting an alien species could go. It was a fun read.
  • Trixie & Me on March 04, 2015

    Wow that was quite the read and well done. Your after thoughts on alien life and why they would ever contact us is on track with my thoughts as well. However, it would not make for an exciting read! This was a well thought out concept and ideas of generation ships. Great job on imagining a type of first contact that is not benign.
  • STALKER Southern Comfort on March 05, 2015

    Wow the writing is insanely good, story excellent, and the world created is intense.
