Imaginaterium
Long ago when the cosmos was young and only chaos reigned supreme in the universe. A great imaginator arose and banished the darkness to the fringes of the universe. The imaginator in time came to be known as the great El. He was known by many names in myths. The imaginator taught creation how to use the powers of imagination. With this power, humanity built great empires which lasted for centuries. But with time the humans forgot about the imaginator and he receded into history. The pulse of imagination slowed and was relegated into myths and legends. A young boy Pierce Agyeman and his best friend Peter Aikins are thrust into a world unlike anything they have imagined. They soon learn that indeed imagination is everything as they battle the forces of darkness.

    The ending was flat out funny

    Well I was impressed. The ending gives you something to think about.
  • The Unsuspecting Mage: The Morcyth Saga Book One on Nov. 30, 2019

    My brother recommended this book to me some years ago. Read it about ten years ago but never reviewed it. Frankly it was interesting book. I was rooting for James. Not a perfect book but a very enjoyable read.
  • The Old Man on Dec. 03, 2019

    Short but interesting exploration of family love and duty. A very thoughtful exposition on the dying moment of a person.
  • Adam The Office Ninja on Dec. 03, 2019

    Honestly I didn't know what to think when I started reading it but the author had his way with this one. A very funny read with a twist at the end. I enjoyed this one.
  • Adventures of Jacko the Conjurer: The Dawn on Dec. 15, 2019

    I read this book some years ago . I really enjoyed the story. it was a bold undertaking by the author, Not many can can turn such a trope into a captivating one .
  • Ascent on Feb. 22, 2020

    This short book has been in my library since 2017. I decided to read it today and frankly I was intrigued by the story. Short but very engaging. The author makes you want to know what happens next.
  • The Devil Made Me Do It on March 25, 2020

    As always Andre never ceases to amaze with his short stories. Nice one.
  • The Dangerous Deed on March 25, 2020

    Well that was some cliffhanger. The story leaves you wanting more.
  • The Girl With Crooked Fangs on April 07, 2020

    Wow. The ending was unexpected but done well. Can anyone really change? I guess that's up to us individually. Did John truly change, you've got to read the book to find out.
  • The Gods Of Gods on Aug. 08, 2020

    The concept was interesting but hard to follow. Some of the sentences needs editing. The author could have done better.
  • Abigail on Sep. 09, 2021
    (no rating)
    I downloaded this book a long time ago on smashwords and decides to read it yesterday. It was a good read. Short but interesting though may need some editing or maybe I am reading an older version. The author should keep it up. I didn't see that plot twist coming and that's interesting.
  • Interrogation Room on Sep. 30, 2021

    A very interesting short book
  • The Daughter of the Man in the Red Jacket on Dec. 30, 2021

    I was curious enough to read this. Though the genre is not for everyone considering some of the topics the books explores. I make it point to read some of the works of the authors who follow me all the time. Doesn't contain much dialogue and it's definitely adult themed. Though you don't want to get caught reading this.
