Outstanding work, I enjoyed reading this immensely. Mr. Zerf, I have one complaint, it ended to damn soon. Nonetheless, it is a gripping, engaging and altogether enjoyable read. Kudo's

Unterhaltsame Endzeitstory. Ein American Marine (schon per Definition ein Supermann) mutiert zum Übermenschen, wegen Strahlung und so.

Two stars from me, meaning: "worth reading".

Remark: In my system, five stars is reserved for the most important SF of world literature, e.g. "1984" from George Orwell, and four stars for those I consider all-time best, for example Michael Crichton or some novels from Larry Niven.
This leaves three stars for most of really good Indie SF, but as everybody else at Smashworts does rate a SF novel at five stars if he liked it, I was detoriating the average rating of Smashwords authors I like best! So I decided to change my previous reviews, one by one, and repost them without the smashwords rating. Watch out for my rating in the review text instead!

Review by: Mary Blackwell on Jan. 19, 2015 :
To say I am amazed at this book is an understatement. I have always been drawn to apocalyptic stories and so downloaded this expecting perhaps something a little different as there are few tales which include fairy tale beings, but this was out of this world in more ways than one. For a start, this is extremely well edited, no typos etc throwing me out of the story and the intricate plot darted around but did not lose me. Another plus for me was that it is set in Britain so much felt familiar to me, but through the eyes of an American Marine it was new too.

This was a page-turner of a tale from an author that is not afraid to invest in characters that do not survive, mix technology with magic or various historical epochs.

Finally, Craig Zerf draws characters that are not only lifelike but larger than life in a naturalistic way, just a few phrases and I felt I grasped inherent characteristics of both heroes and baddies. I turned the pages ever slower to savour the story but did finally run out of book. I just hope that we get to see the sequel soon.
