Cold Hell

   (3 reviews)

Danni Aarmodt is exiled to Planet Redemption, a penal planet. Surrounded by Earth's worse criminals and jagged glaciers, Danni must not only learn to survive the cruel planet's treacherous inmates, unpredictable weather, and psychological affects of isolation but the ancient evil that has been dug up from underneath the ice and awoken.

This is a rewrite of a story I worked on years ago. I was not pleased with the result so I decided to start from scratch.

This is a gem. I had read the original version, and this is drastically better.

I really liked the depiction of Danni's psychic abilities as a problem for and his mother. Usually, those gifts are depicted as positive. So, this was a really good take on it.

Also, the explanation for Danni's actions are given in well places flashback chapters which is a really good way to read two stories at the same time, the backstory and the main story.

This story is a bleak, terrifing, and such a fascinating read.  I can only hope that 

  • will indeed give us all the rest of the story.  Highly recomend this!

Every once in a while you stumble across a great book and a brilliant author. Sometimes, by accident, as in this case. It has been some time since I read Sci-fi, but right from the start I was drawn into this intriguing story. The characters grab a hold of you, the storyline leads you on, and the tension and action are as gripping as any Hollywood blockbuster.

Our hero, or should that be, anti-hero, Danni, becomes an unintentional terrorist when he discovers some family truths about the most powerful family on Earth, his family. The price he will pay is exile to the cold wasteland of a prison planet somewhere in the far reaches of space. As if that in itself were not punishment enough he has other terrors which he must face.

Danni has his own inner turmoil, he has a unique ability, which is a benefit, but also a curse. We slowly learn through some flashbacks to his life on Earth, what went wrong and how he ended up exiled. We also stand at his side as the nail biting tension mounts with an important unimaginable discovery on this frozen planet. A discovery that threatens not just Danni, but the whole of humanity, because it could change everything.

The story is excellent, the pacing is sublime, keeping you reading, keeping you attached to the characters, keeping you on the edge of your seat with tension. It packs a powerful punch and a turmoil of emotions. The descriptions are superb and conjure up the whole scene in your head, it's so well done that you live the story.

I honestly couldn't wait for each new chapter and couldn't put it down when reading. Do yourself a huge favour if you are into Sci-fi and read this first book. And even if you are not such a fan of the genre, or like me haven't read any Sci fi in a while, pick this up, because it's a classic. It could be the book of the next Hollywood blockbuster movie, which would be a first, a Sci-fi movie with a gay theme. Read it please, you won't be disappointed, I'm certain.
