About Brenton Tenner

I am a devoted husband and father and a life-long geek. My passions and hobbies range from video games, series and movies to reading and software development. My goal was always to become a video game developer but that dream got lost somewhere along the way. After completing my studies, I became a software developer specializing in business systems development. I have a BSc degree in both Computer Science and Mathematics and an Honors degree in Computer Science.

After spending more than a decade in the world of software development and achieving great success in that area, I took a step back to reflect. I came to the realization that despite having had a great career thus far, I had lost sight of what made me passionate as a kid. I then picked up mobile video game development as a hobby and developed some indie games for the Google Play Store. Although I really enjoyed the whole indie "vibe", I came to realize that my true passion was not in the programming side of video game development, but what really drove me was creating and developing stories and interesting, unique characters. It all made sense: the common thread that existed in all my passions and interests was not software development or anything like that, it was story telling.

That brings me to where I am now: a father, a husband, a geek, a couch potato, a software developer and an aspiring author who hopes to bring fantastical, fictional tales to the world. As a fan of series and graphic novels / comics, I have chosen to write my tales as short-stories that the reader can finish quite quickly - similar to the concept of a season of a television series. My goal is to release each subsequent issue within a short amount of time so that the readers constantly have something to sink their teeth into without long gaps between the release of the books.

I aim for my work to be like my favorite video games, graphic novels, series, etc: suspenseful, gripping, shocking, character-driven and not for the faint of heart and I truly hope that anyone who does me the honor of reading them not only enjoys them but can't wait to get hold of the next one.

Most of what I observed in the first installment of the Nefairyous Saga remains true of the second. OF course, this time around I went into the book with a mindset to embrace the 2nd person POV and look at it like I was in a mystery or a video game (thinking the old Myst series where the goal was to try and figure out the mystery through experience.) Some of the writing does flirt more with the third person POV in aspects (sometimes it seems like there is no limit to the knowledge we get as the reader. If I'd change anything in the series it'd be that--but it does help keep these stories as relatively short and perfect for the casual reader--kind of like choose your own adventure books.)

Detective Lincoln (from the first book) is absent. I was fine with that. I really did think the author did a better job of worldbuilding and keeping the immediacy of the books events, well, immediate. There is some backstory, for sure, but less so than we saw with the Wishbone killer in book 1 and it helps keep the reader in the element, so the writing style certainly improves between the books. The setting is also improved--partly just in language and names which have a distinct foreignness to them (in the first book I struggled to stay in the setting as some things seemed too familiar at times.)

I am glad to see multiple installments of something labled as a "saga" or series. Those of you who follow my reviews on my blog or via my author/reviewer profiles know that I'm irked whenever I see a novel proudly listed as "Book 1 in the exciting new series you never heard of and which will never see a second installment!" Make sure that you visit the Author's homepage and send him some love and beg for a new story if this sort of 2nd person POV immersive storytelling is your cup of tea.
