“This edge-of-your-seat space adventure/thriller will have you laughing, crying, running for your life, and hungry for more.”
Teresa Grabs

“Incorporating the most compelling depiction of a dystopian society in years, Incitatus is a sorely needed innovation for the science fiction genre. Throughout the story, the author takes you on a daring journey along with an engrossing cast of interesting characters.”
Garrett Bradford

“This was such a creepy and atmospheric read. Dark and almost gothic in its approach, it was well written, with a compelling storyline and strongly developed characters.”
Aria Harlow
