Neil Anderson, author
"I enjoyed the mixture of historical and science-fiction elements in this book. The research done for this story made the book feel more real, and as a person that loves mystery and suspense in a novel, I was not left disappointed.'
"A favourite part of the book was the characters. Alfie was a sweet-natured character in the midst of a brutal environment and manages to stick to his nature despite also having to grow through the difficult moments. Jazz was another inspiring character, charging her battles head-on in the search for justice and vengeance. With many more interesting characters that populate the book, each with their own struggles to face and a role to play in the big picture, they drive the story to its epic conclusion.'
"Overall, the unique mix in genre’s and the roles of espionage and mystery made this a great book to read. With a lot of information and events in the story, it created a feeling of reality and pulled me in deeper into its pages."

"Fire of the Sun tells the story of a nurse who meets an elderly patient, she starts talking to him, he tells her stories from the Nazi Germany. This book is a very interesting historical fiction book, a little different from all the other I’ve been reading. It’s about some very nice theories that the Nazis has contact with alien technology, at first I thought this book wouldn’t be that good but it is!'
"It’s very well written and the characters are amazing, I couldn’t put it down when I started reading because I was in love with the characters! If you’re a fan of different stories, with good characters this book is for you!"
