I haven't had this much fun as a reader in a long time. Wynne's War is a great adventure story, impeccably researched, masterfully plotted, with chapters that blur by like a hail of bullets.

“Bookstores should be broken down into two sections: books that suck and books that don’t suck.”
Benjamin Percy

“Plagues don't just kill people—and that's what lobos is, a plague—they kill humanity.”
Benjamin Percy, Red Moon

“...if he sees his fellow humans as anything more than complicated animals. Not so different from a deer or a wolf, knitted together with the same sinew but in another design.”
Benjamin Percy

Dustin Benjamin~ thank you very much for accepting the friendship request. It's truly an honor. I read Red Moon earlier this year, and as a fairly analytical reader, I enjoyed it very much. Your writing style and word choice are mind-blowing. I look forward to your other work. Keep us all the awesome writing!
