Kevin Domenic has been writing fantasy novels since age fourteen. Born in 1980, Kevin grew up in Thomas Edison's hometown of West Orange, New Jersey. Now living in St. Louis and pursing his writing career, Kevin's goal is not to create books, but worlds.
When he isn't writing or working his full-time job, Kevin enjoys gaming, watching hockey, playing guitar, and of course, spending time with his wonderful wife.
Although his current focus is the Fourth Dimension series, other unrelated projects are in the works as well.

Arus continues his plight of redemption and honor, tossed out into the stars from a society that doesn't believe or trust in machines. This series is probably one of the best series I've read in the past 3 years. Incredibly well-written. Written in Manga style, I felt right at home with all of the characters. (I love manga. =)) The themes of honor, duty, loyalty and respect run deep as in most Manga themes, but the characters are far from cardboard manga repeats. In this book, the theme of redemption is paramount as the war escalates between the three factions.
Don't read this book until you've read book 1 in the series. The two go closely together, and should really be one very long novel. But as it stands, book 2 is incredibly intense.
If you enjoy Star Wars or Lord of the Rings (and you have even a passing knowledge of manga themes), then you must own these three books. Seriously. They're that good.
Full disclosure: No, Mr. Domenic did not solicit this review in any way. I'm posting this because I would love to see talent like this make it in this publishing world.
