“Don’t ever underestimate Typhon. He’s ruthless, pitiless, crueler than you can ever know. Crueler than you can ever possibly imagine. But most of all he’s smart. And driven. Someone to be feared, respected, avoided at all costs. If you see him, you run. Understand me? You run, Jamie, no matter what. No matter where you are, no matter what’s happening to the rest of us.

When reading I find there are authors that are good at writing the ‘big’ story (i.e. save the world), and some—fewer—who can write the ‘small’ story, the character story. It’s rare when they can write both.

Rockwell’s characters are well drawn and interesting. I care about bit characters like Tussle and Harkon, and each are distinct. Sometimes I wish a certain leviathan might get its tentacles on Jamie, but the tenderness between Morgan and Hallea feels very real and all the more poignant when .

Seiokana by J.B. Rockwell is a delightful romp through a series of imaginary worlds—real to the people who inhabit them, but made of pure energy and shaped by the minds of their inhabitants. The various settings in this book are so well described that they almost become characters in their own right, and the tone of each place sets the stage for the types of interactions that occur there. Places that become lonely and feel empty once they are no longer inhabited is such an intriguing concept—it ...more

Where to start with Seiokana, well I’m not a big reader. Between reading Breakshield in 2014 and Seiokana I probably only picked up and completed about two books (including Wharf Rat by the wonderful K.C. Shaw). A book really needs to grip me, I need to be invested within that first chapter or I lose interest. I slid though Seiokana in two sittings, I could only bear to put it down when I fell asleep reading it after a 6 hour stint and being awake for nearly 24 hours. Time seemed to stand still. ...more

Seiokana picks up where J.B. Rockwell’s previous novel, Breakshield, left off. Faced with no other choice, Morgan Quendalen has brought the Jamie Aster and his unknown Talent into the Between, and Jamie is becoming accustomed to life with Quendalen’s group in the village of Boradmoor. Still, Jamie remains both a hope and a threat in equal measure as long as his Talent remains concealed and Typhon continues to pursue him—and this remains the primary source of suspense throughout the novel.

A very good, very solid read and I thought it was even better than the first book in the series (Breakshield).

I'll hand it to the author, because Seiokana is pretty different from Breakshield. In Breakshield, it's largely the action that pulls you along. In this one, it's all about the mystery about what's going on and what's going wrong in the world.

Characters are believable and definitely spike high on the like-o-meter.

The story itself is really well paced (I never once felt like it was dragg

I greatly enjoyed BREAKSHIELD, and it was really interesting to see how that story evolved in SEIOKANA. Tighter, more solid world building, adorable character development, and a real sense of substance to the environments really made me enjoy this story a lot more than the first book.

It's a much more character focused story, setting the scene for action to come, and I *loved* the change in pace. There were moments when I would have enjoyed more action and combat (I wanted a seamonster battle, d

J.B. Rockwell is a New Englander, which is important to note because it means she's (a) hard headed, (b) frequently stubborn, and (c) prone to fits of snarky sarcasticness. As a kid she subsisted on a steady diet of fairy tales, folklore, mythology augmented by generous helpings of science fiction and fantasy. As a quasi-adult she dreamed of being the next Indiana Jones and even pursued (and earne ...more
