The writing world is in upheaval due to the surge of e-books and independent publishing. Diverse opinions abound, but for me this turmoil has been like a renaissance. Writers who would have otherwise left this world with their talents unrecognized at least have a better chance of readers experiencing their work. Once such writer is Ronald T. Jones, author of Warriors of the Four Worlds. I met Ronald online and through conversation discovered he had self published a small novel titled 'Chronicle of the Liberator.' I read the book and was immediately impressed. So when he told me he had a second book being released through Mocha Memories Press I jumped on it and I'm glad I did.
So let's get to the review. If you are a military science fiction fan you will love Warriors of the Four Worlds. The warriors in this fantastic novel are humans that fight for a peaceful and superintelligent race known as the Vingin. Humans aren't the only protectors of the Vingin. The Zirans, a race that have served the Vingins much longer than humans, make up the final part of this galactic triad. After defeating another species bent on conquering the three, the humans prepare themselves for a long period of peace…or so they thought. They suddenly find themselves fighting unexpected enemies for their own survival, and in the process discover some things about their origins that redefine their existence. Ronald mixes exciting battles and an amazing detail in non-existent weaponry with deep characterization and a compelling and surprising story. Lev Gorlin, the human protagonist of this story, is a man as compassionate to his friends and family as he is ruthless with his enemies. He fights to save his species and he does a damn good job despite the odds.
I know that some folks are hesitant to take a chance with small press books. But as I said before, if you'r a fan of military science fiction. Warriors of the Four Worlds will leave you satisfied.
