While I was heading back home after our sojourn in Reykjavik — literally, I may have been off the coast of Greenland — Amazing Stories ran a review of The Enceladus Crisis that included very nice things. Reviewer Matt Mitrovich, who also runs the Alternate History Weekly Update, said:
Martinez’s writing style improved dramatically since the last book and I look forward to seeing how it will continue to evolve in the next book…. It was a great adventure tale that combined elements of a spy thriller with that of a space opera, with a bittersweet ending reminiscent to The Empire Strikes Back. I recommend Enceladus, and the series as a whole.
Thanks, Matt! I was especially encouraged by his comment on the writing. I’m still relatively new when it comes to fiction, so signs of improvement are most certainly a good thing.
Also worth noting: if you’re a member of Goodreads, you can enter The Enceladus Crisis giveaway there. We have 10 copies of the book up for grabs. The giveaway ends on May 6, which also happens to be the book’s release day. So go forth and enter!
Finally, I spotted The Enceladus Crisis on Apple’s iBookstore. It also includes a chance to download a sample of the book, and a decent sized one at that. So if you’re an Apple ebook customer, or just want to peek at the sample, check it out!
