About Eric Swett

I'm an author in progress. I post a serialized story on my wordpress blog page along with book reviews and some other short fiction. Smashwords will definitely be a place where my finished novels will find an electronic home.

Review by: AJ Beamish on Nov. 29, 2012 : star star star star
To give you some sort of literary perspective, Apocalypse Rising is what you get when The Prophecy movies meet Terry Brook’s Word & Void series and stays firmly grounded in current times. Eric adds just enough of a slant on the traditional aspects of the elements he manipulates to keep the whole story from tumbling into a void of clichés.

It’s a short novel that’s well worth a read. I want to say more about it but fear any lengthy analysis may throw out spoilers that will ruin it for you.

Review by: Todd Maternowski on July 15, 2012 : star star star star star
An excellent read, a mixture of Wings of Desire with Good Omens and a little Hellboy thrown in. Plenty of mythological/fantastic elements to chew on, and memorable characters that go beyond the standard cardboard cut-outs of good and evil.
