“The author's soaring imagination and mastery of technical jargon are on full display in this tale of impending interplanetary destruction that would seem to be shattering, yet may not in fact be as catastrophic as one might first imagine.” - US Review of Books

    “Erickson’s imaginative and thrilling story taps into our fascination and thirst for wanting satisfying answers and is entertaining at the same time.” – (4 stars) Hilary Hawkes, Readers’ Favorite

     “His prose is effortless, yet strong and the same time. Conversations felt natural, with each character having a fully developed personality that made them feel distinct… And I always like the quotes he does at the beginning of each chapter. Really sets the tone and is fitting.” - (5 stars) Karen Matthews, Goodreads; Shelfari; Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers

“For a novella length story, Intelligent Design II: Apocalypse packs a thrilling punch in a convincing alien realm, where supernatural, mythical, biblical and historical references collide to create a savage and truly unpredictable universe.” – (5 stars) K.C. Finn, Readers’ Favorite

    “But there are deeper questions and themes explored here if one chooses to look beyond just the obvious “space sci/fi story” and the theory behind “Intelligent Design” is complex and fascinating.”  - (5 stars) Jenna Brewster, Goodreads; Shelfari; Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers

“Amid this fantastical setting, the narrative reads as sharply as an SAS thriller with efficient, no-nonsense heroes and heroines who understand the full and terrifying impact of the decisions they make.” – (5 stars) K.C. Finn, Readers’ Favorite

    “…Erickson uses great word economy and doesn’t bore us with too many unnecessary details, but the descriptions are totally on point. This s an author who fortunately totally understands the concept of ‘show, don’t tell!’ Fast, focused, and to the point…” - (4 stars) Claire Middleton, Goodreads; Shelfari; Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers

Intelligent Design II: Apocalypse

The apocalypse is here… Intelligent Design II: Apocalypse

Hidden planets, preexisting advanced civilizations, coexisting hominid species, and new revelations have all led to the end of days. Whether by twist of fate or by the hands of the Originators, the Jovian planet is about to ignite into a sun. In its wake, Master Architect Janus of Mars will need to warn both Earth and Terra about the profound, cataclysmic effects of such an impossible astronomical anomaly within the Sol System. For wealthy German industrialist and philanthropist Christine Reich and her all-female assault group, Epsilon Team Six, it will mean forming unexpected alliances to save friends and wards. On Terra, former MIT doctoral candidate Andrea Perez will make the discovery of a lifetime—one that will alter the course of her adopted home and prove that there is more to “Hades” than the myth. Apocalypse picks up from where the award-winning Intelligent Design: Revelations leaves off, with more answers that are far darker than the questions.
