Apocalypse Orphan is a fast moving and action-packed Science Fiction book. Commander Orlando Iron Wolf, known as Wolf, is in space when he notices a fast moving comet coming right towards Earth. Mankind tries to prepare for the deadly collision and a last minute plan sends Wolf towards the comet in a final attempt to change its course. Wolf ends up in a cryogenic freeze that lasts for 50,000 years with the help of his onboard computer, Syn. Syn can take form as a beautiful woman, but she is only ...more

This dashing tale is a traditional science fiction novel with a shading of action adventure. It is fast-paced and entertaining.

The book opens well with a likable protagonist and a world in peril. After a long mise-en-scene, we follow the fortunes of Wolf as he struggles to find his place in a world unlike anything he has known. Cut off from everything familiar, with only a machine AI to guide him, he must make sense out of his new life. The problems he faces are compelling, but that's all I wil

Commander Orland Iron Wolf, a Native American astronaut is cryogenically frozen to save his life after a comet hits earth. He awakens 50,000 years in the future to a new world, with only Syn, an AI for company. He discovers a new world full of humans and joins them. I thought this was a very interesting book, there was a lot of great ideas of what could happen if a comet headed toward Earth. I though that Wolf was a good character, although he is painted as a Greek God and it is his lack of know ...more

This sci-fi novel is unlike anything I have ever read. It was SO FUN to read!!!!! I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
There were so many levels to like and enjoy! From mythological creatures, to love triangles, action sequences, awkward moments that made me cringe and yet love the book even more.There were moments I didn't like what was going on, moments I laughed, cheered, and rooted for Wolf. Who is a super-hero on so many levels...... I would read it again!! I CANNOT WAIT

After many many distractions, I was finally able to finish this astounding book!


I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review and honestly I couldn't put this down (Except when I had to put this book down) I am a person who very much enjoys sleep but last night I stayed awake until 5:30am just to finish this book. I tried to go to sleep but it kept on pulling me back in. When reading this book you can never feel safe there's always some turn to keep you tearing through those

In a word: No.

This book deals with a very real fear- the fear of asteroid impact wiping out the human race. And that is about as far as it gets in terms of scientific accuracy. With all due respect to the author, it seems that a majority of the research for this book was done by watching 'Armageddon', 'Deep Impact', and other such 90's blockbusters, mixing the plot points together, and then calling it good. Several plot devices seem to be shamelessly ripping off the aforementioned films- undergr

Thanks to the great people at Book Tasters, I was given a copy of Apocalypse Orphan by Tim Allen to read and review. Suffice to say there were a lot of ups and down about this book that I'm going to cover. First though, one of the biggest things I wanted to note is how much work the author put into a 100,000 plus book, and it shows.

The World Building was Wonderful
It has been a long time since a book pulled me into the world especially with what was pretty much along prolog to the main story. W

*I received this book for free by the Author and Book tasters in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own and have not been influenced by anyone*

Apocalypse Orphan was an intense, action-packed science fiction book that I couldn’t stop reading after the first page. The story begins with Iron Wolf preparing for the worst as a massive comet is aimed straight for Earth. Wolf last minute thinking leads him into the future, after being frozen for thousands of years. Now Wolf is immersed i

A good book, very imaginative and creative, that is 'Apocalypse Orphan' - the first book of the Fractured Earth Saga. Now many people have this complaint that it is not factually correct, but tell me, whichever fiction (Science fiction or not) has ever been factually correct. "Non-fiction" is the genre these disapproving people need.

Now to the review, I find this book very engaging and entertaining. The imagination and creativity of the author is very well commendable. The plot of the book alon

I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review, so here it is.
While far fetched, this book kept me coming back for more.
The main character, Wolf, wakes up after being cryogenically frozen for 50,000 years. The world he wakes up to is quite strange and he has only his AI named Syn to help him find his place in it.
After being told that he is the fulfillment of a prophesy he finds himself protecting people he comes to care about. But there is an enemy who has weapons comparable to

I thought this was a fabulous read. I loved the 'science' in this book, although it's obviously fantastical as opposed to factual. So, a sci-fi-fantasy I could just sit back and enjoy. It had some great characters, some interesting dilemmas, and was an all round enjoyable read.

There was a bit of a cliffhanger, but to be honest, I saw that possibility coming as it was foreshadowed in the (very) latter stages of the book. I particular loved the modern technology use within a sort of stone-age and

This was a very hard book for me to start. A lot of space talk that left me zoning out. Then it ends up like living in Medieval times- mostly. We are told things but don't connect with the characters for much of the book. After half way through we start to like the characters and the story gets better. The ending is a huge "WTF" and I wonder what happens next. Warning. There is much death and destruction.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

An amazing start to a promising saga! Wolf is a character that both sexes will be able to relate to, along with Syn, his AI partner. Waking up from a very, very long sleep, Wolf finds that the civilization he discovers is not an easy one to live in. Having super strength and invincibility definitely help his transition into what is now his home. Waiting for the next installation....

This book is about a man, Wolf, who gets stuck into a comet and comes back to future Earth, 50,000 years later. The Earth has changed, due to the comet collision, and he finds himself a stronger man and, I guess, the comet has made him basically invincible, except for one thing. You must read to find out what. I enjoyed reading this book, the romance is kind of weird and hilarious however.

Unreal

Story started out just fine, depicting the behavior of mankind facing an apocalyptic event. Then we get into really weird made up events where the author is making up the story as he goes along. Story structure is very similar to a junior high students writing.
Glad I got this for free. Would of been mad at myself if I had to pay for it.

This was an interesting book to read. One of things I love about good science fiction is when the science makes sense. A good example of this in Apocalypse Orphan is that a lower Earth gravity would impact the human body. While I haven’t done a lot of research into this field, I do understand why the humans of 50,000 years into the future were much shorter and weighed much less. The author did an excellent job explaining what was happening on Earth during the two years between the comet’s discov ...more

Enough plot holes to be used as a screen door

There are so many inconsistencies in this book that i had to start writing them down as I read then there were too many to write them all down. In the interest of my time I am going to make a list of JUST SOME of the things that
The author does not understand:
Gravity
Holograms
Vaccines
Knives
Brains
The effect of 50 000 years on human memory
Evolution
The human immune system
There are so many things about this book that I have a problem with that the best way

It doesn't usually take me days to read a book but this was a long and incredibly convoluted story. I hardly know what to say to describe this book; it starts out as a well written tale, then segues into too much pseudo-scientific explanation, characters that seem based on legends of earth, adds in some sci-fi based settings and beings, then leaves us with a cliff hanger. I had agreed to read and review this book in exchange for a free copy, otherwise I would have put it down as soon as I felt i ...more

This is not a good book. The setting may have potential, but the plot is being dragged down by author inexperience and excessive wish fulfillment. There is hardly any subtlety in the descriptions at all, and all the characters seem one-dimensional.
