About the Series: The Prīmulī Prophecies
In the 6th century, the immortal Prīmulī took magic and enhanced subspecies genetics away from mankind, forcing us to advance on our own. We did pretty well, too. Iron turned to steel, vacuum tubes turned to printed circuit boards, and we finally made it to the stars.

In the 29th century, Max Gunnarsson is a military scientist, living on Azul, a shining new home for humanity. When he discovers the secret to faster-than-light travel, he takes off for Earth - the home of his ancestors.

That's when everything gets crazy.

Max finds there is a whole lot more to existence (and to his genome) than anyone had previously suspected, and he is to play a huge role in the battle to save The Milky Way Galaxy.

An in-depth sci-fi/fantasy space opera with lycans, vampires, magic, time travel, alien infestations and hot South American girls, The Prīmulī Prophecies aims to please with its genre-bending storyline. Join Max, Jennie, Draagh and the rest as they fight to save mankind from virtual extinction by the pawns of renegade gods of the universe.

Three words - Lycans In Space. It just doesn't get any more awesome than this.

There is a review about "visually impaired, not handicapped accessible", I am familiar with screen readers, in fact i read this entire book, and the next one with my Kindle using text to speech on the Mobi format.

PDF is about the worst choice for text to speech, or screen reader like Jaws. This work is available in .txt which any screen reader should have no problem with. Thought I personally might choose epub, depending on the reader. Additionally there are no works on Smashwords with copy protection, it not an option all works on Smashwords are DRM free.

Review by: oldhorsegirl on March 16, 2016 :
first 13 Pages were really engaging however problems with the PDF format prevent it from being read aloud in a PDF reader (corrupted file or something likely someone's attempt to prevent copying)

Not a good choice for those who are visually impaired, not handicapped accessible

Magic and Science are blended better than most other attempts I have read, the mix here is solidly plausible. I found the basic story line to be a solid four stars, but the repeated mentions (ad nauseam) on the attractiveness of Jennie help bring the story down to 3 stars. There are a lot of words in this work, and the author does a good job of giving them value. I think the story could stand to be edited a bit harder for content, but overall it was a good read,

I do plan to down load the rest of the works in the series and put them in my 'read in the not to distant future', pile.

I totally loved the genre ! sci-fi/fantasy ! It is fast paced and there is a plot twist around every corner ! I am looking forward to more books and perhaps a movie ? thanks for not making vampires sexy and sparkly ! keep up the good work !!

I read the book after finding it for free on Smashwords. Loved it. I see a lot of potential in this series. it's a great combination of my favorite book types.
The author says he wants to write books on the little girl.
PLEASE DO IT SHE IS AMAZING!
I want to say things but they would be spoilers. There are so many surprises in the book, and I'm already reading Lives Of Lost Angels.
Bravo!

I swore I would never read another book with vampires in it, but when I saw they weren't pretty sexy immortal people with diamond-like skin I gave this book a shot. It was free, so I would only lose a bit of my life if it sucked.

I am really glad I read it.

First I'll point out what I didn't really like so much - I actually read the book twice, there's so much going on. I caught so many things the second time around. Maybe that's the case for most books. I don't know. Definitely not a light read. That being said, I didn't find any plot holes or anything tragic.

Now for what I liked:
The author puts a lot of detail into his character development, almost to his own detriment, but as I read I saw it was all for a good cause - he's created a deep, unique universe. I actually hated one of the characters until about halfway through the book. This wasn't a dislike for they way she was written - it was an emotional response. But the author brings her into your heart in a most surprising way.
There is a lot of descriptive violence, and I like how you are walked through the change to werewolf. Gross, and it's reminiscent of An American Werewolf in London. No, it's even worse. if you like blood and gore it's a fun read.

Also great is the explanation of magic, where it came from, where it went and why. I honestly never considered where magic was "from". It was always "magic", and that was that.
Cool segue into book #2, which I'm gonna buy soon.
They should make a new "Science Fantasy" genre for this book - quite fitting.
5 stars for an excellent lead-in to the next book.
