Future Prometheus II: Revolution, Successions & Resurrections

Well this book took me a while to read, but in the end I’d say it was worth it! It is chock-full of the same military-science –fiction as the previous book (Future Prometheus ), and has the same creative and literary element that I enjoyed in the first one. There is even more action, and the author writes VERY well… very descriptive and strong and we feel like we are there almost like watching a movie or something. The editing is near flawless, Overall an interesting, if not surreal novel that continues to push the boundaries of typical sci-fi literature.(5 stars)Cody Brighton; Goodreads, Librarything, Shelfari, Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers

I was hooked from the first paragraph of “Future Prometheus II” and my interest never faded for a single moment! I loved the creative and strong characters and plots that continued to build and shock and surprise as the Prometheus storyline evolved to the exciting climax. Just when you think you know what’s happening, something comes along to throw a wrench in it. This is good because I HATE books that are super predictable. And this one isn’t. Although there are some familiar themes and tropes at play, the author brings a fresh voice and makes it all his own. I’ve read a ton of dystopian and science fiction over the years so I’m rarely surprised by anything anymore but I can say that this author managed to do it. I appreciated the brisk pace and the descriptive details that really brought the story to life – world building is absolutely crucial in selling a ‘fantasy’ story and it is done quite nicely here. Recommend for anyone (adults) who enjoy a well-written, action packed, alternative reality novel with unexpected twists.

J.M. Erickson continues with his strong and almost addicting narrative style and great attention to detail in “Future Prometheus II: Revolution, Successions, and Resurrections” that kept me eagerly turning the pages of my Kindle late into the evening all week (this is a long book… 3 novellas in one.) The military and “sci-fi-language” is vivid and authentic… obvious the author really knows his stuff! But it’s really the characters who move the story forward in a believable engaging manner. This was an amazing series and I definitely can’t wait to read more from this author soon!(4 stars)Essie Harmon; Goodreads, Librarything, Shelfari, Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers

I have a little bit of mixed feelings on this novel, “Future Prometheus II” by J.M. Erickson. On one hand it is so brilliantly original and combines several cool themes and elements that were both unexpected and also richly enhanced the storyline, but there were also parts that I thought were too slow paced (needless dialog or scenes) and I thought there was sometimes TOO much information given that we didn’t need and it almost seemed overwhelming. I did like the ending though, and the way that when I was reading it I felt really invested in the outcome. So that was good. I’m still a little confused by some things but I think maybe that’s okay. I like books that make me think and aren’t all nicely tied up easy-peasy. This is an intelligent novel (novellas), one that will appeal to fans of physiological-thriller suspense and dystopian sci fi.

I’ve lost track of how many books by this prolific author J.M. Erickson I’ve read now (seriously, it must be at least 5 or 6) and each one is always just as impressive as the one before, and this series was no exception. In “Future Prometheus II” Erickson brilliantly delivers a futuristic thriller that has you captivated from the first to the last page. The characters and scenes are so well depicted that I felt like I was right there in the story. Page after page you find yourself drawn deeper and deeper into this thrilling adventure. The clock is ticking. Time is running out. Things are not what they seem. Remarkably executed, you will thoroughly enjoy this ride. I highly recommend this book, and ALL of J.M. Erickson’s books to anyone who enjoys a good sci-fi thriller. They are all true page turners that will leave you wondering why you had not heard of this remarkable author before now.

Like the first book, the writing is superb in “Future Prometheus II: Revolution, Successions, and Resurrections” by J. M. Erickson. Throughout almost the whole book (all three ‘novellas’) I was on the edge as I felt like everything that was happening to Melendez was happening to me. Love when I feel part of a story like that! Highly recommend – novels has flashes of brilliance and couldn’t put it down. High-stakes, action filled futuristic sci-fi/adventure/thriller/dystopian, you name it… probably appropriate for older teens on up. Fantastic series. Ready for more form this author!
