About the Series: Xavier Series
In the year 2067, a new world is discovered among the dark expanses of the cosmos. Harvesting the resources of this vast new planet, known as Xavier997, may be the only hope a post-apocalyptic earth has for survival. Upon arriving, however, the explorers of this promising new world discover they are not the only ones interested in Xavier's rich resources, forcing mankind to fight for the new home they need so desperately, as well as defend the one they already have.

Welcome to the breathtakingly beautiful, yet horribly dangerous realm of Xavier, wherein lies the treasures, resources, and secrets to both raise mankind from the ashes, or bring them to their knees...

Review by: razorbronco on Feb. 24, 2015 :
Even at its slowest points, The Scrolls of Xavier was a book filled with action and suspense. The five tribes that our heroes combat were merciless and well thought out, and their distinct physiology and behaviors were excellent focal points of the book. As far as the plot goes, the story moved quite quickly without feeling too rushed, leading me to finish the book in a matter of days.
I am quite interested to see where the rest of the story goes, and will be purchasing the rest of the series.

Review by: Graham Murdo on Feb. 22, 2015 :
I enjoyed the characters and plot of this book even if there were some issues with the science/engineering used in the storyline.

Where the book fails miserably however is in the actual language used. There are major problems with both spelling and grammar, incomplete sentences, words used wrongly showing the writer has no understanding of their meaning and poor sentence structure. If this author ever wants to be taken seriously he either needs a good editor or needs to spend time studying the principles of basic English language.

The author has great promise as a storyteller, he has the imagination and ability to create a believable world and characters, but is let down by his ability in using the correct written language to convey these things to his readers. I will be interested to see if the author takes steps to address these issues, if he does then I will certainly be reading more of his books however I am not prepared to pay for what is currently a defective product.
