A love of mythology of all types from an early age eventually sparked an interest in comic books and, ultimately, to the fantasy genre. Task Force: Gaea began as a short story 25 years ago and evolved into its current incarnation with dedication and a desire to write the story he wanted to tell. He lives with his partner in Tampa Bay and is currently working on a sequel to Task Force: Gaea, Memory's Curse, a Lovecraftian tale of elder gods, Olympeian gods, and mortals.

(So when I write/you read this it might seem a little rumbled up to you, so I’ll try my best to organize it to your understanding. If it’s a problem I can rewrite it!)
The first Part is Apollo’s story, in only Apollos view really. At the first it was a little confusing reading from his point since it was more describing then showing. Instead of seeing much of the surrounding we saw and heard what Apollo saw and thought. This was a good set up to get the reader into the story and wonder how balance will be found again. And it ends just on the point of driving the reader mad.
The second part: We’re introduced to the characters of the prophecy. This is when it stops being descriptive and we see the characters and their thought patterns more.Each character acquires a gift or a certain power in some way. Their stories behind them were what i found most fascinating about the books. Each individual character was given a good in depth personality and we see apollo from a different point of view.
The book like all book would drag at points, but isn’t that normal? Well it didn't drag very much since it was smoothly pushed into another scene or event or action/fight. SOme scenes would end rather abrupt and it felt like they had lost some of their meaning.
Overall it was a good read and the artwork at the end was a surprise.
