Book blurb:

 

The Akakies, a peaceful, technologically advanced alien species known as “the galaxy’s pranksters,” are under attack by the Xortaags, a vicious military race bent on conquering the universe. The Xortaags are deadly, but Tarq, the Akakies’ chief strategist and legendary shadow master, has a plan.

 

Meanwhile on Earth, Jim, a wise-cracking, movie-quoting, OCD-suffering fighter pilot, is about to propose to his girlfriend Liz when his childhood friend Kurt shows up at his house, injured and covered in blood. Kurt is a freedom fighter/super- assassin hunted by a brutal military dictatorship’s security forces. Soon after, Jim, Liz and Kurt’s lives are set to crash with a galactic war that threatens the very existence of the human race.

 

Can our heroes save humanity from the wrath of an overwhelming enemy?

 

The Crimson Deathbringer seamlessly blends breathtaking action sequences with mischievous humor. If you are a science fiction/space opera fan, this book, with its memorable characters, formidable antagonist and Game of Thrones style shocking moments, is written especially for you.

My review:

 

When I started this book, I had 0 expectations, no idea of what I was going to find.

And man, was I surprised.

The Crimson Death Bringer is a mix of funny and clever dialogue, action packed adventure, with scenes that made me chuckle, bite my nails, and provoked a tear or two.

All while it kept me at the edge of my seat, trying to guess what would happen next. And no, most times I guessed wrong.

 

In this book, Sean Robins takes us into a futuristic adventure where aliens have come to conquer earth. Seems familiar? Add another alien race who decides helping humans will benefit them in the long run, and there you have it: A ruthless species who wants to conquer earth and treat humans as their slave-poppets vs. another alien race who are technologically advanced…. but are dubbed the galaxy’s pranksters and will need the humans to pilot and fight the enemy.

The result? Well, a complete disaster!

 

There are multiple pov’s in this book, something I know isn’t easy to write, but Sean pulled it off perfectly. His characters are well drawn, his descriptions clear and easy to envision.

And the ending will make you wish for more!

 

The Crimson Death Bringer is a compelling, thrilling and fun read that will keep you at the edge of your seat. Totally recommend it!

  2. Jina, thanks for the lovely review. I am so happy you liked my book. I feel like having a new baby, and I am constantly worried people might not like my book-baby:(

    I don’t want to sound like an opportunist, but since as a new author, I can use any help I can get, please let me ask if anyone else interested in reviewing my book or even just reading it:)

  3. Hello Sean. Welcome and good luck with your blog…and your novel. Blogging is not only a great way to meet other writers and potential readers of your books. Blogging is a wonderful way to learn MORE about writing, about promotion, and even better, about the amazing number of wonderful human beings out here in this world.
    Oh, and Jina, a great review of a what sounds like a fun page-turning sci fi book.
