Smashwords book reviews by Ivan Karagodine

  • Spinward Fringe Broadcast 6: Fragments on Dec. 05, 2011

    books in the series becoming better with each new one. The only problem with this book is that the next one is not available yet. It is packed with so much action that sometimes I wish events flow slower so I can reflect on more profound part of the story. Looking forward to "end of the season"
  • Spinward Fringe Broadcast 7: Framework on Nov. 27, 2012

    All the months of waiting and frequent checking for this book were absolutely worth it! It is the grand finale for the saga with big potential. All the ends met and big picture is cleared. Too sad the main protagonist didn’t win all the prises. It’s like in real life, not in a fairy tale. This book is slightly different from the previous 7. While previous books were like screenplays for a show episodes I cannot imagine the last one to transform into a movie. There are 2 distinctive parts if the book. The first one is setting up all the known from previous books heroes in relation to each other (required step as a lot of it has been forgotten since the release of the previous book) and resolves old conflicts. The second part is dealing with the closing battle. On a negative side of the story I got a feeling that imaginative framework technology is too powerful to compete with regular people.
