I seriously cannot wait for the next book! I picked The Razing up at the Indianapolis Comic Con and started reading it as soon as I got home. I love the way the world is laid out and the characters are each very distinct. The conclusion is amazing and sets up the series incredibly. The only downfall is that I have to wait for the next book to come out to continue the adventure.

Fans of A.G. Riddle’s The Origin series will be happy to discover J.A. Davis’ engrossing blend of swords and sci-fi.

If the term “ancient alien artifact” piques your interest, then you may want to pick up J.A. Davis’ The Razing, which imagines an ancient civilization in possession of technology that far surpasses our own. The millions who read The Atlantis Gene will find comfort food in Davis’ novel, which begins with a letter from one present-day academic to another detailing the composition of

The Razing, by J. A. Davis, could be considered a supernatural thriller, a science fiction, a mystery, or a fantasy novel. It has elements from all of them. Personally, I’d consider it a science fiction, but whatever category The Razing is placed in, it’s a good read.
Set in Araz, an alien society where advanced technology is blended with vicious, barbaric customs, ruled by feudal nobility seeming to typify all that is bad in a sentient species; The Razing follows the adventures of Aaranon, a pri

I love great sci fi books, but I can never find one that keeps my interest. They always seem the same to me. However, this book was genuine and lively.

As a reader I love mixtures of different genres and I have to say this was full of so many twists and interesting events it reminded me of A Song of Ice and Fire, a fantasy series.

The main character reminded me of Aragorn from Lord of The Rings, and his silent companion (sorry the names are slipping my mind. It has been a while since I read it) re

I have a short book-attention span and often start a book only to put it down half finished. I couldn't put this one down. The story and the characters really grabbed me and I can't wait to start the second book!

As the author I'm a bit biased so I won't review my own book. I would however, enjoy to hear what others have to say.
