About Legend Brook

Hello, readers!
My name is Legend Brook (Pen Name L. W. Brook) and I am the author of all "Amser Studios" original work.
What is Amser Studios?
Glad you asked!
It is a charming collection of stories that fall into a "timeline", of sorts. Meaning, the stories exist in the same "universe" and tend to connect/play off of one another.
You can actually see the full timeline at:
Http://www.amserstudios.com/collections

That said, Amser Studios is a pre-organized collection, so although all story lines in the timeline are set in stone, the actual production process is still underway! To stay updated, please subscribe to my site, http://www.amserstudios.com to receive our monthly newsletter! Thank you so much for your support and have a wonderful rest of your day.

The good: This novel (collection of novelettes) is intelligent, creative, and multi-faceted. It is never boring, and definitely keeps you on your toes. It’s deep and has layers upon layers of subtle subtext that continues to become exposed throughout the course of the book. The concept was nicely crafted and we become invested in the outcome. The writing is lovely and lyrical, and quite descriptive. The not-so-good: I had a difficult time connecting with the style the author used as it was different than what I am used to. There were some editing errors, and I’m not sure that third-person (or ‘planet’-ha!) present-tense was the best choice for this book as it does make us much more emotionally detached from the story. I felt too much like things were being told TO me, instead of letting me be a part of the action and experience it for myself. There were stretches where tension was lacking and needed more conflict. That all said, no book is perfect, nor do I expect it to be. Was it the best book I ever read? No. Was it the worst? Not by a long shot. Would I read more from this author? Absolutely, yes. Would I recommend to others? Yes, as long as the aforementioned doesn’t bother you. It is quite an interesting and compelling experience, and the author gets high praise from me for writing such a unique story.

This was an interesting space opera that is divided into 5 ‘novelettes’ which comprise the whole story… The plot was very original and thought-provoking, but I thought just some parts were perhaps a bit too complex for my personal tastes. I tend to get frustrated when reading if there are too many characters involved, but I don’t feel like I really understand them all that well, or really understand their motives or goals… that happened with me here a few times. But the ones I had figured out I thought were explained really well, and I was curious to see everyone’s fates. Some unexpected twists I didn’t see coming. The conclusion makes you want to read more, and I can say with all honesty that despite a few flaws I had a good time reading this book, and think the author is mad creative! Would read more for sure.

I don’t really know how to best describe or sum up this book, because I have a lot of mixed feelings about it. Some parts I thought were downright amazing and perfectly executed. Sometimes I felt that the story seemed to lose focus and just seemed like filler/fluff. There were great characters who added to the plot and tension, and some who just seemed to take up space (pardon the pun). I did notice some editing and grammatical errors which I was able to overlook for the sake of the story, but they were present. It took me a long time to feel grounded in the story and get a feel for what was going on, but once I did I admit I was hooked and had to see what would happen next. And I wasn’t disappointed in the least! I think L. W. Brook definitely has potential as a writer and I’m sure we’ll be seeing more from him in the future!

4.5 stars
I’ve been a huge fan of Sci-fi for over a decade and have read plenty of books in the genre. As much as I enjoy them, unfortunately after a while it starts seeming like I’m reading the same book with the same formula over and over again. This was not the case with “Assembly of Planets” by L.W. Brook. This novel was incredibly original with a fresh twist to a political space-opera theme. I genuinely enjoyed being inside this unique ‘world’ for a while, and liked the concept of the almost ‘personification’ of the planets in the council. There were all the elements present that I like in my SciFi, and some that will appeal to a more “sci-fi-lite” crowd. It wasn’t a heavy space opera by any means, but there were elements of the philosophical, drama, and the extra-terrestrial that gave the book its delicious sci fi flavor. It is a fast read, one I finished in the span of a few evenings, and while it could benefit from another round of proofreading, I definitely enjoyed reading it and recommend for fans of the genre who are looking for something new.

"Assembly of Planets” is the first book I’ve read by L.W. Brook, and I hope it’s not the last! (That should answer the author’s question at the end of the book). I found his storytelling to be creative and engaging, and I like that I didn’t feel like I’d read anything like this before – and I read a lot! I was instantly sucked into the book right away with the vivid descriptions of the entities/characters and of Jupiter’s plight, and then how it all explodes into something unpredictable and makes you want to keep reading. I admit I was confused why these were considered ‘novelettes’ when to me they just seemed more like chapters (as they didn’t conclude at the end…). I don’t want to give it away but around the 50% mark things get crazy and I couldn’t put my kindle down after that. This book was well written, expect for a few minor editing issues, and took me on a dramatic ride in space, one that I enjoyed immensely.
