About Michael Seeley

At an early age, Michael Seeley found himself devouring tales of adventures in the past. He soon began sharing and shaping these stories; writing quickly followed. A lover of history and fantasy, Michael now writes to show the personal side of the past. His first series, Men of Eagles, offers new perspectives on the wars of the Napoleonic Age. His first novel, The Faith, chronicles an adventure of regicide on the eve of the tumultuous 1848 Revolutions. His second novel asks what might have happened if Napoleon had won the Battle of Waterloo. Michael has found inspiration from the winding alleyways of Paris, the tall forests of Norway, and the impressive Acropolis of Athens, but he currently resides in the Midwest, listening to the winds whisper across the prairie.

Review by: Mia Darien on Jan. 24, 2012 :
This isn't an easy set of stories for my to rate, I find. I found that I liked the ideas, the cores of the stories, but found their execution - in setting, in dramatic tension, and in their morals - to be done with too heavy a hand for my taste. Too many sections that were clearly "info dumps" and things over-stated. I like a little more subtlety.

But they were not incompetently written, and done with more finesse, the basic stories are good ideas, though the final story's point, it's moral, was so expansive, that being confined to so short a length felt almost like an injustice to its meaning.
