Smashwords book reviews by Gary O'Brien

  • Bone Dust and Beginnings Book 1 on Dec. 09, 2014

    Excellent reading. Ties into (after?) her Life After War series (also apocalyptic). Reading the Life After War series will shed a little more light on this story since this one seems to start right in the middle. A good read even without reading any of the previous series. However, now that I have read the Life After War: Books 1-3, I recommend reading that series first, it will definitely make this one easier to understand. Also, after reading this one, I think it should be the first in the Alexa's Travels series. Alexa's Travels: A Prelude should be second or third. The first two books of both series are currently free at Smashwords.
  • Anywhere But Here on Jan. 09, 2015

    Anywhere But Here by Jason D. Morrow Book one of the Starborn Ascension series. A post-apocalyptic tale about survival after nuclear war. It includes violence, supernatural powers, zombies, love. Good story. I didn't understand Waverly's obsessive aversion to guns considering the violent world she lived in. I'm normally not big on zombies but they seem to fit in here. I recommend this. I read all three of the books in this series but can only review this one (because it's free) on Smashwords because, unfortunately, I did not purchase them here. I rate all three of them the same.
  • Dystopian Stand Book Four on Jan. 09, 2015

    The unusual apocalyptic tale about survival after nuclear war continues. It includes nuclear destruction, war, magic, love and pretty much all the elements that make a good story. Spellbinding. Really. There is more magic, more sex, more violence. Outstanding. I am now having trouble waiting for book seven. I recommend this highly.
  • Adrian's Eagles Book Two on Jan. 09, 2015

    The unusual apocalyptic tale about survival after nuclear war continues. It includes nuclear destruction, war, magic, love and pretty much all the elements that make a good story. Excellent writing, excellent plot. I recommend this highly.
  • Nuclear Ashes Book Three on Jan. 09, 2015

    Book five of the Life After War series. The unusual apocalyptic tale about survival after nuclear war continues. It includes nuclear destruction, war, magic, love and pretty much all the elements that make a good story. Spellbinding. Really. There is more magic, more sex, more violence. Outstanding. I recommend this highly.
  • Life After War Box Set 1-3 on Jan. 09, 2015

    These first three books of the series are excellent. An unusual apocalyptic tale about survival. It includes nuclear destruction, war, magic, love and pretty much all the elements that make a good story. I recommend this highly.
  • The Change on Jan. 09, 2015

    Excellent reading. This is what the world would be like five hundred years after the Life After War series and Alexa's Travels series (also (post-)apocalyptic) if Adrian had not succeeded. Still a lot of violence, sex and magic. Excellent even without reading any of the previous series. However, I recommend reading the other two series first, it will definitely make this one even better.
  • Changeling Winds on Jan. 12, 2015

    Second book in the The Bachelor Battles trilogy. This is what the world would be like five hundred years after the Life After War series and Alexa's Travels series (also apocalyptic) if Adrian is not successful in his attempt to improve the world after nuclear war. The story continues with bloody violence, sex and war. Excellent even without reading any of the previous series. However, I recommend reading the other two series first, it will definitely make this one even better.
  • Escape the Milky Way on May 02, 2017

    The tags say it's a children's book, a book for boys. For young boys it is a good story. The writing, however, is not very good. It appears to have been written by a young boy. A young boy that has very little knowledge of space, the time it takes to travel somewhere in space, the nature on natural bodies (atmosphere and gravity on Pluto?), etc. My opinion is that the facts should be correct so the child hearing the story learns something. This story seems a bit to immature for a child that is able to read it themselves.
