Advanced Praise For The Flashfall Sword
The whole idea of the Skinweavers, their culture, and where they originated is brilliant and sets up a lot of questions about where our society could head if technology is used against us. Hladky develops excellent relationships between realistic characters, and he excels at catching the reader off guard. The Flashfall Sword is sure to make a mark in its genre.

The Book Of Ruin Reviews
The author has created a plausible future world that still has the human contrivances of faith and honor, cowardice and greed facing fallout from the failures and successes of the world that preceded it. Being something of a battle buff, I find the battle scenes detailed and tactically involved ( think Lord of the Rings siege of Rohan, if that helps). – LG.
The Book of Ruin richly explores a very plausible future alternative with a remarkable ensemble of characters exploring good and evil, truth and justice, and tests the limits of oaths and brotherhood…The Book of Ruin manages to blend a dystopian future with a glimmer of hope. The author fully utilizes the insights gained from his travels, and these details add richness to the narrative. – Donald Wallbaum
I became invested with the integrity and dedication of the primary characters of Senior Chief Weir and his associates. They have to overcome the obstacles of corrupt and incompetent superiors in their own governing and military branches while preparing to face a new enemy which is greater in numbers and dark evil.The individual honor and self sacrifice of the protagonist soldiers had me rooting for them to prevail. – MSEreads
