Rise of the Immortals is a fantastically real dystopian novel! Geoffrey Wakeling has woven together a tale of how things could be if we don't take notice, stand up, and change. Uncontrollable pollution, genetic modifications, overpopulation ... these sound like the usual headlines for today but these could well change the world for the worse if not taken seriously.

Stuff like controlled climates sound good until you stay in them for real

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Cryo has an interesting premise, but it spends a lot of time on the unhappy feelings of the main character, inside his head. I think, absent or lighter on this aspect, it could have been a nice read. Some interesting ideas and twists on future scenarios. The book sets the scene for a follow-on.

Having read inside evil and the tower of souls by G Wakeling I knew I had to read this one too and I wasn't disappointed! From start to finish I was hooked and couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen to John and his seemingly average life in the future! G Wakeling paints a vivid and descriptive picture of the future In john's quest for a better life as he joins a programme to be frozen and awoken in the future but what will he wake up too?! Can't wait for the next book in the series!

This is an excellent and well written book. the world building is done so well you can almost imagine it could be a true story of future events, and the characters are believable.

I'm a professional copywriter and blogger by day, interspersing writing with walking in the forest, gardening and wiping cat drool off my lap.

By night, I'm working on my novels, the first of which has been published; Inside Evil.
