Several weeks ago, Andrew Williams asked me to review his new scifi/fantasy Arcadia’s Children 2: The Fyfield Plantation. The book is a sequel to Arcadia’s Children: Samantha’s Revenge. If you read book 1 you’ll find many familiar faces in book 2, including Tarmy and Samantha.
I like way the Sci Fi elements are handled in the book. I don’t like a lot of technical jargon and too much complicated explanations of technology, and you don’t get that here. It’s straightforward and easy to read. Don’t worry, though. You’ll be in no doubt whatsoever that you’re in another world.
I also like the author’s writing style. It flows easily and logically and keeps the scenes moving along. That’s another thing I like about the author’s writing. The book is fast paced and all the action keeps you reading because you can’t wait to find out what happens next. The plot is skillfully crafted and I didn’t always see what was coming. Williams is a good storyteller who makes you care about the outcome of the book.
If you’re a Sci-Fi lover I’d recommend Fyfield Plantation. The book should be available sometime in January or February so I don’t have a cover to share. I decided to share the cover for book 1. I think for maximum enjoyment the books should be read in order. The book is being published by Wings ePress.
