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.

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!

A daring and imaginative continuation of the Flawed Gods series. Incandescence is darker and more disturbing in tone than Hyclos, but is none the worse for that. Doella must penetrate an anti-universe and confront a ruler who wields powers that are equal and opposite to her own in order to defeat her own dark impulses and regain control of her destiny. A great read - I couldn't put it down!
