Spreading the Word . . .

. . . on behalf of Sean Robins, author of The Scarlet Queen, The Golden Viper, and The White Republic (some of the quirky [fun/exciting] books in the sci-fi The Crimson Deathbringer series).

Jim Harrison is the main protagonist, a fighting hero with an ego and alter-ego named Venom.  He has a trustworthy best friend, Kurt, who helps him win battles.  And there is a great array of secondary characters, such as dogged and determined (win at all costs) General Maada, prank-dense and maybe dangerous (but you can never truly be sure) Tarq, and beautiful femme-fatale mercenary and spy, Xornaa.

So, per Sean’s request, I’m helping spread the word: the box set continues to be a bestseller!  How awesome is that?  If you haven’t yet checked out his books, I highly recommend you do; each one is an entertaining (easy-to-get-hooked) read.

A little about Sean: he’s a university/college-level English teacher and huge Marvel (plus Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, and Stargate) fan, as is evident in his stories (they’re full of pop-culture references).

Check him out on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/sean.robins.77, and Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/Sean-Robins/e/B07PS1116K%3Fref=dbs_a_mng_rwt_scns_share, among others.

Sean Robins does not Disappoint with The White Republic

Another quick plug—this one for Sean Robins.  I had the pleasure of editing the sixth book in The Crimson Deathbringer series and The White Republic: An Epic Space Opera/Alien Adventure does not disappoint.  It’s as enjoyable a read as the previous (great title, too).

If you’ve been following, you know about the brilliant battles and enemy invasions and the fun cast of characters, including: Jim (the hero), Kurt (his friend, and the President), Xornaa (a stunning warrior), Tarq (the four-legged prankster), Maada (the enemy-turned-ally General). 

This time the question is: what happens if the technologically superior Akakies develop into the villainous Klingons in a parallel universe?

The ship itself was built before the widespread use of SAM had changed the Akakies into a warrior race, but they had recently added layers upon layers of offensive and defensive weaponry to her hull, turning her into a lethal killing machine that could destroy an entire planet with ease. With a few thousand escort space fighters, she could stand against the entire enemy force and prevail.

When the White Republic’s navy decimates the Federation’s forces in a surprise attack, Jim and his friends must unite once more to expel the invaders and liberate their worlds.  Unfortunately, they have only a few thousand ships left and, to make matters worse, they’re under a tight deadline—with time rapidly running out. 

How will they accomplish this incredible feat?  You’ll have to read The White Republic to find out.  You can find it and the other books in the series here:

Review: The Scarlet Queen by Sean Robins

It’s time for another Sean Robins review.  Our prolific writer has penned another book, The Scarlet Queen, the prequel to the well-received The Crimson Deathbringer series.  This time, we follow beautiful Xornaa, a “femme fatale mercenary”—and Xortaag spy—who becomes involved in time traveling with the intriguing if not unique Klatzo, creator of the time machine.  In addition to (expected and desired) engaging battles, there are more life-saving episodes (but no spoiler alerts as to outcomes).

There are references to characters from the series (like Tarq the impassioned prankster and Maada the dogged general), which bring back welcome memories of those other exhilarating stories and danger-fraught and oft crazy adventures.

Here’s a little taste:

Up until then, I still had a faint hope that we could make it to the jump point, but it evaporated with the arrival of the new enemy ships. I closed my eyes, let out a long low sigh, and covered my face in defeat. The thought that everything I’d done, including inventing a freaking time machine, had been for naught stabbed at my heart.

I clenched my fist so tightly that my hands started shaking as a vein began to pulse in my forehead. Then I heard my doppelgangers shouting in excitement. I looked at my tactical display and, in sheer astonishment, realized the new ships were shooting at their own space fighters.

I blinked and checked my tactical display again to make sure my eyes weren’t deceiving me. Nope. It was real.

Two of the pursuing space fighters were hit before their pilots realized what was happening. The other two broke and flew in opposite directions, but each had three vessels on their six, and I was certain even their pilots knew they were doomed. They threw their space fighters up and down, left and right, and tried to avoid the incoming fire, but they joined their dead comrades in less than two minutes.

What the hell is going on?!

What the hell indeed?  You’ll just have to read The Scarlet Queen to discover what happens!

For those not yet familiar with Sean, he’s a huge fan of Marvel, Game of Thrones, Star Wars, and Star Trek.  He’s also a university/college level English teacher who has lived and worked in different countries.  To find out more, please check out Sean and his new book out at:

Review: The Silver Timeship by Sean Robins (The Crimson Deathbringer Series Book 4)

Sean Robin’s heroes and principals are back—Jim, Kurt, Xorgaana, Maada, Tarq—to save the universe before it’s too late!  Can they <shiver, shudder, gasp> do it?

They can if Jim, the ego-heavy protagonist, has anything to say about it—once he gets through licking his wounds, of course.  Kurt, Jim’s best friend, has no qualms about assisting.  Stunning, mind-reading Xornaa’s all in; so are prankster Tarq and former nemesis, General Maada.  And we have a sharp-witted newcomer, the beautiful Benedita, who flies a silver timeship (thus adding an interesting dimension, in more ways than one).

For the first time in a very, very long while, Benedita allowed herself to hope. Jim, Tarq, Maada, Kurt, and Xornaa were legends (especially Maada, that man was an apex predator). Together, they’d defeated the Volts, and they would go on to overcome more sinister threats in the future. If anyone could stop the Ghost Fleet, it was them. She might be able to pull this off, after all, which meant Diogo, Bia and Belinha wouldn’t die a horrible death. Of course, without the Time Engine, she was trapped here and would never see them again, but just knowing that they’d be alive and well was enough.

An odd array of “soldiers”, they set off to set things right.  En route, they encounter a sundry of curious characters, including Mother, an AI who turns out to be anything but maternal.  You want to talk about a run for your money, er, life, er . . .

The fourth in the Crimson Deathbringer series, The Silver Timeship, delivers . . . action, drama (of several sorts), and the usual wackiness.  There are a few nail-biting battles, where it appears that victory—and the fate of the illustrious universe—might belong to either side.

Overall, The Silver Timeship is a fun ride.  You’ll not want to put down the book until you know the outcome: did they or didn’t they?

A definite 4 out of 5.

And, just so you fans are aware, coming in the not-too-distant future (but who really knows what “future” entails when time travel’s involved), is The Scarlet Queen.  It’s a prequel and features a few of your favorite characters’ adventures before the Xortaag invasion of Earth. There will also be one called The White Republic, but I’ll leave you with a bit of mystery as to what that one entails.

You can find Sean Robins on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Sean-Robins) and Twitter (@seanrobins300) and Facebook (facebook.com/seanrobins300).

seanabcFor those not yet familiar with Sean, he is a huge fan of Marvel, Game of ThronesStar Wars and Star Trek.  He’s also a university/college level English teacher who has lived and worked in five different countries( like Canada, eh?).  He’s met people from all around the world, and his parents and wife are from different backgrounds—hence, diversity as a major theme in his novels.
