A science fiction spy thriller with deep metaphysical undertones where the future of humankind is at stake. Fueled by brilliantly insightful scientific speculation—such as augmented reality advertisements known as “hallucinads” and cutting-edge marketing devices known as “Gibsons” that blur the lines between reality and virtual reality—the meticulously described science fiction backdrop is an undeniable strength.… Readers might enjoy the labyrinthine plotting and visionary science fiction conceptualizations…
Recommended for deep readers who enjoy their literary fare on the mind-bending and thought-provoking side.

Cinematic in its writing, it’s easy to visualize the action and characters of PANDEMONIUM in a range of exotic settings…like in a classic James Bond movie…prognostications about the future of communications technology… both funny and disturbing…descriptions of near future military technology…are both exciting and credible.
This novel is Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost transported into the mid-twenty-first century and translated into an action packed…page-turning political thriller…a meditation on rebellion, loss and redemption, and what it means to be human…an attempt to make sense of a fallen world… to resolve the contradictions between a secular world view and a spiritual view of reality.

Loved It! 5.0 out of 5 stars
I finished reading Pandemonium last night and I LOVED it! It works on so many levels, which is what I especially like in a novel. I kept thinking this is what might have happened if Ray Bradbury had been a student of Aleister Crowley!
The writing is so fluid, reading it was really more like seeing it. And so suspenseful! I haven’t had a lot of time to read lately, but whenever I had a quiet moment I immediately thought to pick it up.
And now I can’t wait for the next one!

A fun, fast paced, literary burrito. It has something for everyone, so everyone should read! 5.0 out of 5 stars
With sci-fi and espionage, wrapped in a little theology, with a sprinkle of, but not too much, romance; this series is an exciting getaway. It will have you thinking of otherworldly possibilities while taking you through a moment to moment, fast-paced espionage episode. I say episode because it is a part of an entire series that takes you through all time, begging questions of existence and time on earth. I can’t wait to go back and see what happened at the beginning of time in this alternate universe. I was not a reader of sci-fi before necessarily, (I’m a romance junky if we are perfectly transparent), I am here and now converted. Happy reading, I highly recommend.
