“Have to admit to being lured into reading this book from the cover alone! And I wasn’t disappointed! I was quickly drawn into the story the moment I started reading and found it good, silly fun at times!! Was a great mix of drama, mystery, sci-fi, romance and humor!
“I think that some of the silliness of the situations added to my enjoyment as it is a book that doesn’t take itself too seriously and just gives the reader the enjoyment of watching the story unfold and wondering what little twist will occur next! Always good to read something a little different and this was that!”


“I was excited to win this actual book because it sounded intriguing. This did not fail! I fell in love with the silly, naive, gullible main character from the get go. I rooted for him. I yelled at him to get his head out of the clouds. I thought about him when I wasn’t actually reading the book. I loved everything about this story! Great book. Kudos to author R.A. Andrade!”

“Enjoyable beginning; last half of the book I was entranced. A very good job.
Downside is the author doesn’t yet have 20 more ; or at least a trilogy.

So back to Edgar Rice Burroughs until he does.”


“I loved this story. A mix of sci-fi, romance and action, it kept me reading wondering what was going to happen next. Very enjoyable with touches of humor that had me laughing out loud.”
