Thank you for stopping by to hear more about The World Awakening, book #3 in my Gateways to Alissia series with Harper Voyager.
Praise for The Island Deception:
“If you like your heroes touched with a spark (or snark) of anti-hero, Quinn is a gem.”
–Marlene Harris, Reading Reality. Full Review
“The short chapters, entertaining characters, and witty dialog certainly helped the pages turn long into the night, and when I finally finished only one thought came to mind: when’s the next one out? In my eyes, when a book leaves you with that feeling you know you’ve got a winner. Recommended.”
–Mark Chitty, SFFworld. Full Review
“A lively, even compulsive, read. More Quinn Bradley, please.”
–Kay Kenyon, Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist. Full Review
“Good job, Koboldt. I both love and hate you now.”
–Anna Tan, Deeply Shallow. Full Review
Praise for The Rogue Retrieval:
“The writing is crisp, the story moves quickly, and the characters are well drawn… This is a more than impressive first novel; it is a rollicking good read.”
–Galaxy’s Edge Magazine
“The fun of this story is watching the team dodge, lie and fight their way across a medieval world where their charade could cost them their lives.”
–Kay Kenyon, Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist
“With a world that can offer both sci-fi and fantasy storytelling, Koboldt has a very large canvas to work with, and The Rogue Retrieval is an excellent first stroke. Recommended.”
–Mark Chitty, SFFworld
