Smashwords book reviews by William Akin III

  • The Aurora City on Feb. 19, 2014

    I have read all the books on here and I must say they were fascinating. The whole mystery behind Aurora city kept me reading because I had to know what was going on. This was probably my favorite by the writer followed by fatal boarding. All the books kept me going in a similar way. As for the Cassell-Markman series, Cassiopia and Scott make such a fun combo of two different characters that mesh well together.
  • Lesson One - a short story on April 07, 2014

    Quite a wild and different read. I do not think it was that dark, but it sure did make me think about life a bit deeper. Well done I enjoyed it.
  • Frozen Dinner on May 01, 2014

    Very well done. Usually I sniff out this type of story right away, but even I was surprised. Good job.
  • The Army of the Night on May 02, 2014

    Love historical fiction like this. Fun to see what people come up with. A great one.
  • Beef Stew from Anna Lou on July 10, 2014

    Great read. The only complaint is that it was not longer to enjoy more.
  • Slocomb's Pond on July 10, 2014

    Another great work of story telling
  • Pillar's Shadow on July 22, 2014

    Pretty wild and mysterious world ceated here. Keeps us readers trying to figure out what is going on, fun read.
  • Old Man's Time on July 23, 2014

    A nice story. Could be fleshed out and more in-depth, but I enjoyed it.
  • Fading Away on July 25, 2014

    Well done, enjoyed the read.
  • Eponym on Aug. 01, 2014

    Big fan of this short story, very creative and detailed.
  • The Probe on Aug. 14, 2014

    Great message
  • Selected Short Stories Featuring Cry Wolf on Aug. 15, 2014

    Great intro to your work. I look forward to reading whole books
  • The New Zeitgeist: A Tale from the Zombie Apocalypse on Aug. 21, 2014

    Great angle
  • Out into the Void (A Short Story) on Aug. 21, 2014

    I like the idea behind the story, but it felt rushed. KInd of like I was missing scenes of a scratched DVD.
  • MW1 on Aug. 29, 2014
    (no rating)
    Pretty fun story, kept the mystery going until the end
  • Voyage of the Dead (Book One: Sovereign Spirit Saga) on Sep. 05, 2014

    Wild Zombie story. WIll have to look into the rest of them.
  • Immunosupression on Oct. 10, 2014

    Fun ZA story. It could be turned into something bigger with the two interesting main characters if the author wanted, but still is a satisfying read as is.
  • A Dream of Hope and Sorrow - Book One of the Druid Saga on Oct. 28, 2014

    If I could I would give this ten stars. It was a beautifully crafted story with engaging characters and everything flowed perfectly. I look forward to reading more.
  • Godship on Nov. 04, 2014

    Started off interesting, but slowly faded as the story went on. I was waiting for some kind of twist or interesting event to happen. It didnt.
  • Smoke, Mirrors and Deep Space on Nov. 21, 2014

    Not what I expected, but quite an interesting read
  • Fear and Aggression on Jan. 06, 2015

    This book makes one really contemplate the human race, our psychology, beliefs, and actions. If we were the first race into space and found a weaker race what would happen? Even the ending makes one question everything even more.
  • From Out of the Dark on Jan. 15, 2015

    One story was horrible, but the rest were quite fun reads. The ideas and imaginations behind them are quite fascinating tales. Although some feel like the ending is rushed, I still enjoyed them.
  • Raised by the Fox on Feb. 04, 2015

    Some pretty interesting short stories
  • Squatter's Rights on March 03, 2015

    I enjoyed this story of first contact and discovery. It seemed quite realistic in one way meeting an alien species could go. It was a fun read.
  • Trixie & Me on March 04, 2015

    Wow that was quite the read and well done. Your after thoughts on alien life and why they would ever contact us is on track with my thoughts as well. However, it would not make for an exciting read! This was a well thought out concept and ideas of generation ships. Great job on imagining a type of first contact that is not benign.
  • STALKER Southern Comfort on March 05, 2015

    Wow the writing is insanely good, story excellent, and the world created is intense.
  • The Edge Of Life on April 26, 2017

    That was a cool read. The main character really felt like it could be me and I was like you just got to do it man and hope for the best.
  • Scale Free on May 17, 2017

    I greatly enjoyed this book and the philosophy behind it all. The idea of Scale Free is quite interesting. Would I kill my body to free my mind? Would I kill my child's body to free their mind? Fascinating stuff. The plot the revolves around all this is quite suspenseful as well, but with a predictable end not because of the writing, but because of human nature.
  • The Darkest Night on May 25, 2017

    That was a fun and interesting read. Horror stories can be tough to get the feeling of fear from the characters into the reader. It was well done job though.
  • Dark Isle on Oct. 20, 2017

    It was quite a fun read. Anytime you can bring medieval ghosts to the present is always my idea of a fun time. I do wish there was more anxiety created after Mark got to the island and the final scene. Such as more scrambling to find a solution as we waited in more anticipation if the final showdown was going to happen or not.
