A page-turning, bite-your-nails, stay-up-all-night book Jan 12, 2007
Full of action, horror, and conspiracy thriller-type suspense, this is a book that succeeds on many different levels. Gramlich is one of those rare writers with the enviable ability to understand and sympathize with a wide assortment of characters (including some non-human ones). He also has a gift for capturing the essence of experiences in a way that makes you say, Yes, yes; I know what that feels like. Highly recommended!
Modern Science Fiction Thrill-Ride Jul 18, 2006
Did you grow up watching Predator, Aliens, and Clive Barker films? Do you like reading modern dialogue along the lines of Elmore Leonard? Are you a fan of true action-adventure stories that rely on an author's study of his genre that rings true in each description (similar to Robert E. Howard). If so, then you've found the right book. Charles Gramlich meshes a hard-hitting action story with the modern world of evolutionary possibility. Gramlich creates a very believable race of earth-evolved humanoids and throws them into an Arkansas forest and small town. Follow the protagonists through a non-stop series of life and death challenges as they try to understand the new species that fate has brought their way. The story has it all: a psychotic military leader, a mad scientist, a super-intelligent warrior race, and even a hero and heroine. You'll even get a lesson in firearms as a freebie! Gramlich descriptions are memorable without becoming gratuitous. He is definitely a "form follows function" writer that will keep you reading "just one more chapter" until you take a break. Let's hope Gramlich follows this up with another great adventure for the "warkind". Read on, you won't be disappointed!
Shivers Feb 13, 2004
Charles's writing leaves a shiver on the spine that doesn't go away with the rising of the sun. I highly recommend his works to anyone looking for something to keep them up late into the night.
Monster Psychology Oct 4, 2002
This is a great read. From the first scene it pulls you into its vortex of action, intrigue, conspiracy, and gore. I especially like Kargen, the "monster" (I don't want to give away the cool surprise of who or what he *really* is). Gramlich's background as a psychologist really shows through this depiction. He gets deep inside Kargen's brutal, twisted, and changing mind. This book keeps you at the edge of your seat, turning pages.
The action is flowing, well-described, brutal. The prose, even in scenes of horrific violence, is lyrical. This is a thinking person's thriller, because after you put it down you'll be mulling it over in your mind days, weeks, months after.
I'm glad that the epilogue hints of a possible sequel. Buy this book and give Charles Gramlich reason to write it!
