I thought the first part of this 3 book set was interesting. It dealt with the possibly innate abilities of the human being. In that context, I am willing to suspend belief and buy into almost any talents.

However, as the series progressed, it began to get into technology that I just couldn't buy in to. Our hero desalinated sea water by passing through a simple sand filter? He develops a submarine that "burns salt" as its fuel?

I could even buy into a time travel. That's a common fantasy we all

Will Stark is a successful entrepreneur in the 21st century who gets thrown into a fantastical adventure when his wife and son are attacked, his house is set on fire, and then he gets accosted and beaten by mysterious men who think he's some high-falutin' mastermind of some whole faction of a weird cult that punishes you for getting married to a human and wants to kill you for having children.

I'm down with the story. Science fiction, nanotechnology, time travel. Five stars for that.

I thought the premise was intriguing and was drawn in right away. Although, at times, the writing felt adolescent, it was generally well written. Book one was good, with a few twists that I did not see coming.
However, it fell apart from there. There was a lot of repetition. When writing sequels it is necessary to provide a synopsis of the story so far, but I am referring to the repetition of facts presented 2 or 3 pages earlier. This happens multiple times. Books 2 and 3 are OK if you are

You may enjoy the first book if you have an attention span of 10 pages or so and need to be constantly reminded of what you've already read. You may enjoy this series if you like two-dimensional characters who seemingly have the ability to precisely divine the intentions of everyone else, no matter how nonsensical their motivations may be. And you may enjoy the later books if you've done as little research on medieval England as the author has (go ahead and take a look at some manuscripts in Old ...more

Awesome books!

This story will keep your attention from start to finish. I am not sure that I would be able to be as strong as Will & Hope had to be.

Tediously written. This could have been a great story, but the writing is so painfully terrible that I only finished this set because... well, because I had them. And I started it. So I finished it. I declined to read any more beyond these, even though I had already invested three books' worth of my attention, because I couldn't bare the thought of wading through another sentence. The plot is very intriguing, but the author TELLS you EVERYTHING. Nothing is left to inference or imagination - ...more

Great start but stalls out

This book started with an interesting premise. Book one was almost all foundation material but a decent read. Book two moved the story line along at a great pace. Then came book three. It sank like a stone. The book goes into much boring detail about builds with out needing to. I ended up scanning through pages looking for action, reading the new info then scanning another 20 pages. After book two i was sure I would want to buy the whole series. Now, I won't.

Plodding and predictable, needs real reconstruction to be even very good.

The super powerful characters in this book lack depth, the villainous secret society is found wanting in plausibility, the poor research or no research on historical secret societies, technological innovations and lost civilizations, prevents suspension of disbelief. This probably should be a two star review, but the actual writing is not awful, some of the dialogues flow nicely, and I may have read more of the series but

So part one was amazing seriously five stars one of the best books ever. Part two was good but slowed down a bit a solid four stars. But part three was terrible. I only finished out of a sense of loyalty for part One. Why would anyone want to read pages describing construction projects and brainstorming???? It was soooooooo bad.

Overall, this was a fantastic trilogy. I almost exclusively read indie sci-fi author's free offerings, and sadly, most of them I put down in the first 30 pages due to poor writing. That is most certainly not the case with the Aliomenti Saga. These books center around a group of powered people, channeling energy to do everything from set things spontaneously aflame, to teleportation, telepathy and to other vast powers - like flight and outer body experiences. The protagonist is an amnesiac, and ...more

Good read but needs a tech edit, too much redundancy

This is a great read!

However chapters tend to repeat things from previous chapters. Also I kept having to go back to reread things that had happened in previous 1 or 2 pages because the same thing that had already happened was happening again but with a different outcome. (for example: Adam returns to village and finds out two of the women he wants to see are dead, then he walks out with Will and Will tells him that they are not dead because

Overall I liked the books. Until the 3rd book I felt the characters and the story progressed nicely. Most of the elements were reasonably developed and believable. I was disappointed in the last book because I felt that the plot line bogged down in descriptions of processes not really necessary to the plot. I almost felt the author was inserting "filler" to stretch out the story. And worse the details really did not explain what was going on. The biggest example is the extensive space devoted to ...more

This book set was free on Amazon, so I tend to review from that perspective. In the end, it does indeed get clunky, with the main character having beyond god-like powers and then having to go thru almost ridiculous plots twists to get back to the pre-ordained history.
But somehow, I still found it compelling and interesting reading. Somewhere in there, there is a good plot and some great characters and original ideas. Perhaps dragging it out into so many books (as seems to be the norm in the

A good read and directions on survival

I really became involved in the plight of Will Stark as he moves from one challenge to another and from one time to another. However, the constant processes of building and it's details, even though interesting, interfered with the flow of ongoing story lines. I would have liked to hear more about Hope and her trials rather than learn step by step how to make a town out of cement. I am anxious to learn more about their relationships in the future. I think

Wow, just WOW!

I got this as a free ebook download of the first three books in a series. And then you think to yourself, well obviously the author isn’t very sure of his brainchild if he offers the first 3 books for free. Let me tell you something, this author is so sure that you will want to read everything he has written that he can give away the first 3 books in his series free, because at the end he knows that you will never walk away from what happens to Will and Hope.

I was talking to a friend yesterday about what books I have read recently that I couldn't put down. Instantly my mind came to The Aliomenti Saga by Alex Albrinck, Author.
It is described on Amazon as "A sprawling blend of science fiction, high technology, and fantasy, The Aliomenti Saga traces the rise and proliferation of a secret group of supernaturally gifted men and women through the life of their most dynamic member, Will Stark." and is full of twists and turns that kept you engaged

I like time travel stories, especially when the characters themselves aren't aware of it. This was not what I expected from the start, but the story was handled well, especially when characters were forced to go against their own instincts to preserve the timeline. It makes for very thought provoking reading. Books that make one think should be on everyone's reading list. This book won't appeal to everyone, but if you like time stories, and tails that make characters examine their stance on life ...more

Such a good read

When I first started this series I was a little confused. Is it sci fi ? Is it magic? Turns out it's a bit of. Both. I'm still a bit confused 3 books in but the series is hard to put down. Wills constant battle to save Hope and his children draws you in as well as him building up the Alominati. This book has him leaving them and sailing off with Hope I'm looking forward to reading what comes next for them both.

Hey truly ingenious Twist on time travel and inhuman abilities

Books one and two were truly ingenious. The ideas released in those two volumes were a very interesting twist on many fantasy type subjects. Book 3 seem to be setting the tone for the rest of the series I hope because it was extremely wordy and drawn-out. After book 3 I am hesitating to continue with the series.

Great Weave of Present to Past and Back Again!

The collection was great. Unfortunately there were missing pages and errors in the digital copy of the three books. I hope to get the 4th one soon and let's hope the digital copy has been proofed before the publisher's put it up for sell.

I enjoyed this story and the main character, Will and his journey through history. It didn’t feel like a common sci-fi book though with much of the trilogy talking about how a thousand year old Will reinvents basic things like aqueducts and geared water wheels but, it was a good ride and written well to deal with such a long time span and making it so easy to read.

Inspiring and illuminating

I have never read a series such as this. It is totally different than everything else out there and I enjoyed reading the first three, and I no doubt will enjoy the rest just as much. The amount if detail the author puts into the books is incredible. Very well done!

Saga of a man sent back in time to save his future wife and how he works to use his "energy" to change people and their abilities, thus influencing history. Since this is the first 3 books in an 8-book series, the story doesn't end. The author often repeats things, making the reading somewhat tedious.

First Three Volumes

This is a box set of the first three volumes of the Aliomenti Saga which,so far, is up to eight volumes. These first three focus on William a man who violates the oath of Aliomenti.
There is much time travel involved that gives a fanciful explanation on how the human race advanced technologically.

Excellent series - 1-3 only so far.

Thought this an excellent series of imagination, but agree with those frustrated comments from others, too much repetition and actually violent. So do be careful if you're sensitive or young.

Imaginative time travel

Well-written and fairly fast-paced time travel novel with interesting concept of fabled Illuminati-like group. The storyline and characters are well-developed and the plot has good moments of excitement
