Pissed-off interdimensional demons threaten to overrun the world, and only one man can stop them: perpetually nervous, paper-eating valedictorian Amadeus Brunmeier.

But the police believe he killed his father, his best friend calls him a frightened rabbit, and the girl he loves thinks he’s nothing but a mouth-breathing weirdo.

To prove everyone wrong, Amadeus begins a peril

Amadeus Brunmeier thought giving a valedictorian speech in front of thousands of people was unthinkable, and then he had to face life-threatening events. He realizes the terrors of a speech was nothing to the death of his father, demons entering through a portal, being hunted by the government, and learning to fly the Pachyderm. He fights demons and an assassin like he had been doing it for years.

Tommy Brunmeier had four investors and one of them sold him out. Amadeus, Grassel, and Lilly must fi

This one caught me off guard. I wasn’t really a fan of the beginning. The main character, Amadeus, is rather weird, and his family situation is a little unexplained and hard to follow. Then, before I really felt like I was familiar with the characters and setting, the action took off at a break-neck pace. From there, it never let up. Slightly confusing lack of background aside, the relentless action is what I liked most about the novel. There were twists and turns I really didn’t see coming. Lot ...more

Reaction (The End of the Iron Age, #1) by Seth M. Baker has a uniquely named protagonist, Amadeus Brunmeier, a bit of a nervous person who must seemingly save himself and those around him from ticked off demons. This is kind of mix of coming of age story and fairly predictable science fiction, there are bad guys, and through time travel and other assorted mechanisms, the hero must fight them off. Supported by an interesting cast of characters, from Grassal and Lilly to crazy scientists, there is ...more

Action Packed!!

It doesn't take very long while reading this book to quickly figure out there's no way in a million years that any of this stuff could actually happen,but that's why it's called fantasy.It is what it is, it's not supposed to be realistic that's what makes it so entertaining.This was a fun read,Amadeus Brunmeier and his non stop anything that can go wrong will go wrong adventures was a blast.The larger than life off the wall characters he surrounds himself with during his escapades

I am part way through this book. The book is set in the not too distant future. Electric and natural gas cars are on the roads and high speed rail connects the country. However, our main character is able to travel with no real problems while on the run from the government. Facial recognition software? Nope, not a factor. Cash for a motorcycle with no title? First try. I really think these guys with no criminal history or connections would have been caught before they ever got started. They run ...more

A coming of age story featuring Amadeus Brunmeier, a shy recent college graduate who happens to be very, very smart. Amadeus is trying to save the world from interdimentional demons while being chased by police, bad guys, and demons. Believable characters and every secret that is solved causes more to pop up. This book is keeper.
