About Joe Vasicek

Joe Vasicek fell in love with science fiction and fantasy when he read A Wrinkle in Time and The Neverending Story as a child. He wrote several unfinished novels in high school and took Brandon Sanderson's writing class at Brigham Young University.

He first came onto the indie writing scene in 2011 with his debut novel Genesis Earth. Since then, he has written more than twenty novels and novellas, including Genesis Earth, Gunslinger to the Stars, The Sword Keeper, and the Sons of the Starfarers series. His stories have been published in Perehilion, Mirror Dance, Sci Phi Journal, Uprising Review, Kasma SF, and Leading Edge.

This was an interesting read. I was hesitant to read this book at first, that is why I elected to set the price at free. The title didn't grab me and then as I got into the book, James just didn't click with me.

But suddenly, the story took off and I found myself burning through the pages as I became hooked on the characters (even James) and the twisting plot.

There are a few things that I really enjoyed about this title. In no particular order, they are:

1. The world building. I get the feeling that this universe is immense and has a lush history. It had such an alien feel about it, yet everyone is a decedent of Earth. I loved that the cultures were well thought out and developed.

2. Avoiding cliche's. As a writer myself, I am appreciative of the fact that Joe Vasicek didn't make me lumber through this novel only to give me plot twists that I could anticipate a mile away. That is a nice change of pace. Without spoiling it for readers, Joe took some great pains to give readers an unexpected experience throughout the book. The ending I started to expect - didn't happen.

3. Character development. I enjoy watching characters change and grow based on their experiences. There was no shortage of that in this book.

This is a great read that I am glad I took a chance on. If you're like me and are hesitant to spend money on something you're not sure about, take risk free option and select the free or 99 cent option. It is well worth it and I can tell you first hand, I will gladly be paying full price for the other books in this series.
