Smashwords book reviews by Ben Kesp

  • Huntsman Returned on July 05, 2014

    Fast paced story with beautiful descriptive writing.
  • The Golden Age Dawns on Oct. 16, 2017

    The Golden Age Dawns is book one of a trilogy exploring the societies across Europe that are crumbling under disease and destruction that have been spread to the continent by unseen and evil forces. Life on earth is not as people believe it to be. A fierce unseen cosmic battle is taking place between two great alien powers and the human race is caught in the middle. Woods has told an interesting and compelling story. It’s fast paced with plenty of action that pulls the reader in to see what will happen next. The story contains multiple characters and each has been selected to fulfil their destined path to help in saving or destroying the human race. Developing multiple characters can be difficult and can prevent connection to the emotional and thought process of the individual however Woods has created wonderful and interesting back stories to each of the very different main characters. Additionally as this is only book one of three, this book provides the introduction to the characters which will see developed more as the story unfolds. An aspect I loved about The Golden Age Dawns is the setting of various scenes around ancient sites of the world whether in Ireland, United Kingdom or Africa. This instils all sorts of imaginings of what these sites might have once been used for by powerful alien races. Overall it is an interesting and enjoyable read and sets the pace for the following instalments to come.
