About Anne Spackman

At the current time, I am a gymnastics coach and a writer of many types of fiction. I have a BA in English language and literature from the University of Chicago. I am half-American and half-Scottish. I spent many summers as a girl in Scotland, and moved to England at 16 where I finished high school at Bedford High School in Bedfordshire, England.

My first novel, The Last Immortal, I wrote more than twenty years ago. It is the first of six novels in the "Seeds of a Fallen Empire" series that was finished in 2000 and finally published as an e-book in 2010-2014 after many years of trying the traditional publishing route. I have also written one fantasy novel, Curse of the Dragon Kings, which was written in 1997 and published as an e-book in 2010.

As a writer, I started out writing mostly science fiction and also fantasy as I so much loved J.R.R. Tolkien as a girl. I also really enjoy historical fiction set in the days of ancient Rome, (and Egypt.) I am now writing more romantic and historical short stories.

Ever wonder what the future holds for planet Earth? As the scene of the action moves closer to home, this book extrapolates from current events where the future of this planet might be headed over the next couple of millenia, with some predictions that are definitely intriguing and well thought-out, whether you agree with them or not. We get some food for thought about what it means to be human, as the book explores the differences and similarities between some of the characters from Book 1 and the residents of planet Earth, both of which consider themselves to be human. We also get a sneak peek behind the science of immortality, and what that might look like at a genetic level. But mostly this is the story of young people growing up in a time of unexpected war, learning about themselves as their abilities are put to the test, and trying to find love in a time when there is all too little time for it. And, of course, trying to save the Earth from aliens! Spoiler alert, this book is a cliffhanger--while we are left with the sense that the Earth will be okay, I get the feeling that there is a lot more to come in this saga that will make you want to pick up Book 3 ASAP!

If you haven’t read the first book in the series, this book may be difficult to figure out right away.
The beginning of the book starts well,and continues in the series from its first an ideal series for the pen minded fantasy

If you haven’t read the first book in the series, this book may be difficult to figure out right away. The beginning of the book starts well, but has a timeline that makes it rather difficult to get into at first. The book is interesting, despite some implausible elements. I enjoyed the Superman-esque elements. Essentially you have an alien superbeing child on the future Earth who is adopted by Earth people, who grows up not knowing who she is and with superpowers. The style of this book may not be for everyone, but I enjoyed it.

There are some parts that could use a little trimming. And of course, the science has been fudged in order to make the plot work. Of course, you can not have an alien being disguised among a human population. It worked in Superman, though, so it has been done….

I don’t recommend this book for people who don’t like to be challenged at all by what they read. It is a hard read at times, but very well written despite a few minor weaknesses in the plot.
