Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

Nightscape: Double Feature #2 (Fantasy Adventure)
By David W. Edwards and Josh Reynolds
Imperial Entertainment
ISBN #978-0989748758
Price $11.99 (Paperback)
240 Pages
Rating 4-Stars

As noted, this book contains two stories, a short novel & novelette. The Divine Drowned, the longer of the two works begins the adventure. We are introduced to Nolin “Lancer” Quigg and his team of adventurers. They enter the sea in submersibles in search of sunken islands and are separated by a White space and deposited in, perhaps, different dimensions where each meet a black woman guarded by baboon warriors. The story is well written, and the characters are interesting.

The second story, Forever The Star Finder, is shorter and continues the Quigg family story, as recorded by Fianna I Quigg.  It’s in a slightly different format, and includes illustrations.

Although well written, the characters didn’t pull me into the story, and I had no interest in the plot. Numerous monsters, other dimensions, supernatural elements, and wild adventure face the team. Enough material for several novels, but nothing I cared for. However, I think this book will appeal to fantasy readers everywhere. Highly recommended.
