What A Lovely Review Of “Demonspawn”!


Demonspawn by Christina Engela – a review

by Lee Hall

‘In space, not all things were certain… not even death’

Demonspawn is a detailed well-imagined space story, which I found hard to put down, in fact I read the book in just 3 sittings.

Christina Engela has created a believable world of space travel, delivering it in way that seemed to me logical and explained without straying from the main plot.

From the very opening, there is a deliberate psychological vagueness as to what the ‘big bad’ could be. This heightens the mystery giving readers a real urgency and a want to find out, eventually you will.

With that tension steadily building the story follows the somewhat damned crew of the I.S.S. Mordrake; a ship seemingly stranded and damaged beyond repair in the furthest reaches of space. Their captain is found murdered and so it’s up to main character Joe Lofflin to investigate along with a cast full of convincing characters.

Then they discover a derelict ship just floating in space.

This story reminded me of films such as Alien and Event Horizon but Demonspawn could easily stand shoulder to shoulder with them. There were many concepts of the sci-fi genre in this book that were original and put together in a way not seen before anywhere else (this was especially so for the ‘Akx’.)

It’s an enjoyable read that will leave you wanting more.

“High Steaks” – Quantum #6


Troubled times have come to the small backwater Terran Colony planet of Deanna – and having amusing names for its sun (Ramalama) and two moons (Ding and Dong) have not made this quaint little world immune to bad things – not even having a small moon famous for falling down occasionally… and bad things are indeed afoot.

New Release: “Blachart” – Galaxii #1


I’ve been writing stories basically since I could hold a wax crayon, and this book is in that respect a milestone for me. Why? Well, you may ask that question, but the answer isn’t a simple one.

While you may recognize the name of this book, “Blachart“, you won’t recognize the cover! If you read it before, and were to read it again now, you would notice a few changes. For one thing, there are illustrations in color (eBook versions), and while the plot remains unchanged, the flow of events within are more refined and there is a good deal more story to it. The book is also a good deal longer than it was before – nearly twice the length as a matter of fact. This is book 1 in the Galaxii Series, titled “Blachart“, and the new version is now available via Lulu.com and Smashwords, and should be through their networks of retailers too, shortly.
