Smashwords book reviews by Phill Campbell

  • Flawed Gods on June 25, 2012

    A highly original first novel, adult, compelling and avant-garde. Vividly imagined, with a relentless, exciting pace. the author's invention of lamina physics is an especially ingenious touch. A must-read for those who are tired of traditional fantasy scenarios. Highly recommended.
  • Hyclos on Feb. 11, 2013

    Even more chock-full of ideas, excitement, incidents, plot-twists and characters than its worthy predecessor. Sometimes a glut of information in SF/Fantasy novels can be confusing, but Hyclos avoids this because of its central character, whose quest and inner development give the book a strong core. If you are tired of the usual genre stereotypes and cliches and want something that is resolutely non-mainstream, this is the one to read!
