An amazing review of my novel TYPHOON TIME on AMAZING STORIES

Typhoon Time, …, is a roller coaster ride where the clever and sometimes diabolical plans of the multiple characters are constantly getting in each others way and forcing everyone to adapt to changing circumstances or risk being left behind or worse. Nothing goes according to plan, ever, which is why the plans are constantly changing, the characters scrambling to get control of events, and the readers running alongside trying to keep up. The pace is frenetic, frantic, and exhilarating. Loads of fun.

I think I’ll adopt the quote: “Nothing goes according to plan, ever,”
