Another Author Review of Hell Holes 1: What Lurks Below

Today, I received a second 5 star Amazon review by another author:

A Unique Action/Adventure Story (5 Stars)

By DMReader on August 25, 2016 (Original Amazon Review)

Hell Holes: What Lurks Below is a quick, enjoyable read. Full of action and fraught with danger, the story moves at a steady pace throughout. Action scenes are well done, keeping you on the edge of your seat. The array of demons the author has created are well developed, scary, and unique. The demons (and the hell holes) provide an interesting and original premise. I won’t divulge any spoilers, but one character has very different and unexpected talents. If you enjoy action/adventure stories but are tired of the same old threats, this is a book you should pick up.

Urban Fantasy? Science Fantasy? (5 Stars)

By AngryGnome on February 27, 2016 (Original Amazon Review)

A big surprise. Even though the premise is spelled out during the Prologue, what followed was consistently surprising, and constantly gripping. Furthermore, the underlying science that is described here is very well presented. Not overly didactic, but adding an interesting and useful dimension which helps add credibility to the story as a whole.

The book is short, which is probably my only gripe. I got ‘into’ it quickly, and I enjoyed my time in Firesmith’s world. I did not want to leave. Given that there appears to be more to follow, I have something to look forward to and will certainly keep an eye out for a sequel.

Urban Fantasy? Science Fantasy? I’m not sure how to label it. But whatever it is, I really got a kick out of it, and would happily come back for more. Recommended.

About Donald

A computer geek by day, Donald Firesmith works as a system and software engineer helping the US Government acquire large, complex software-intensive systems. In this guise, he has authored seven technical books, written numerous software- and system-related articles and papers, and spoken at more conferences than he can possibly remember. He is also proud to have been named a Distinguished Engineer by the Association of Computing Machinery, although his pride is tempered somewhat worrying whether the term “distinguished” makes him sound more like a graybeard academic rather than an active engineer whose beard is still more red than gray. By night and on weekends, his alter ego writes modern paranormal fantasy, apocalyptic science fiction, action and adventure novels and relaxes by handcrafting magic wands from various magical woods and mystical gemstones. His first foray into fiction is the book Magical Wands: A Cornucopia of Wand Lore written under the pen name Wolfrick Ignatius Feuerschmied. He lives in Crafton, Pennsylvania with his wife Becky, his son Dane, and varying numbers of dogs, cats, and birds.
