About Mario Walsh

Firstly, thank you for supporting my five books; Episode III, Episode IV, Episode V, Episode II, and recently I. A lot of hard work and time has gone into this story. I've been working on this series since September 2007, and have released Episode III first as I feel it was necessary to tell Syra's story first. The order that I will release the series is Episode III, IV, V, and then Episode II, followed by I and VI: Prologue. Now that all five are available, you can read them in chronological order as well. The Time Series - Episode VI: Epilogue - X - will be released afterwards.

A bit about me

I'm a 32 year old author from West Auckland, New Zealand. I love action and Science Fiction - especially time travel. This series is my attempt of merging both these loves into one.
My father introduced me to the 'Back to the Future' trilogy at age 6, so since then I've always been pretty obsessed with Time travel.
If you have any questions about my series, like my facebook page and ask anything you like, i'd be happy to answer.
One last thing. My book has a lot of violence in it, which does not mean that I condone it in the real world. You see, I dissect a scene in my head and describe it on paper how I see it. It's just how I have always been; I love vivid detail, and want to reader to be able to see what unfolded in my head as I wrote it.
Again, a big thank you from the bottom of my heart. Positive or negitive reviews, thank you for reading my creation. It's been nearly 9 years of telling this story, and it'll take plenty more.

Review by: arryn sefonte on May 28, 2014 :
a great read, many questions answered and a few more asked. this tale had a final battle that is not to be missed. the build up was well worth it and all the pawns feel into place. hope it is not to long before the next chapter is available. recommended to all especially if something different is your cop of tea. this is the only series I have ever read that it is impossible to predict what will happen next.. great work Mario don't ever stop

Review by: Megan C on May 2, 2014 :
This book is by far my favorite of the three that have been released in the series. The more you read, the more sense you make of the previous two books, they tie into each other in a profound way. These books have been written with such skill and every detail, even minor either is or becomes relevant in the paradox that is Syra's existence. This book in particular draws on many emotions experienced throughout the series. I love how the story ends yet at the same time is the beginning, such is the paradox. Well done to the author, I will definitely be interested in more of the series.

This is an amazing book. My favourite one in this series so far. The story is so well built and the plots so intricate. Believe me, I had to turn back to previous pages just to make sure I got all facts right. I highly recommend this book to everybody. Mario Walsh is a very talented author whose style is really modern. If you have not read the previous two books, download them and read them first. Great books and guess what.. they are free. What more to ask? Still reading my review??? what are you waiting to download the book? Enjoy the series.

Review by: Shanelle Followell on April 13, 2014 :
Another well written read from Mario Walsh. It seems with each book that adds to the series he becomes more confident in his writing and really draws you in to the journey with Syra and her friends. This book of the 3 was definitely hardest to put down and I read it in record time. The story fills in gaps and poses new questions. I love that with the end of each book so far there is a sense of anticipation for the next episode in the series - can't wait for the next release!

Congratulations babe you now have 3 books online. I am so proud of you! Episode V is easily my favourite of the 3. I love the style of story telling and was constantly wanting to know how the thing that happens at the end of chapter 8 was going to not happen... (if you've read it you'll understand) I love that the paradoxes are starting to unfold and close become closed loops. Still trying to wrap half of them around my brain. Must say im dating a very smart, sexy and talented author! Can't wait to help you get the next ones out there. Read this series! You will not be disapointed. Each book leaves you wanting more and more!

Mario has done is again with this one, couldn't put it down, read cover to cover the day I brought it, excitement, anticipation, confusion (lol), it has it all, and the battle with akaid..... brutal. its the little details in the previous books that tie into this book that make the story so addictive, ties together so masterfully. well done, deserving of every star it gets.
