The Octunnumi Fosbit Files Prologue by Trevor Alan Foris is not your usual sci-fi/fantasy. The plot is one of a kind and implementation of the theme is equally unique: so much so that reading it makes you feel as if it’s written by someone from some another planet. Yes, literally!

The Octunnumi is an alliance of different innesomids, its main purpose is to keep all the innesomids safe. The inhabitants of Octunnumi have special abilities and are able to visit any myth, fantasy, and make believe. T

This story begins innocuously enough with teenage brothers and their banter and play fighting. The main premise is soon revealed to be that a group of children is missing, so bring on suspicions of who is responsible and speculation on motives, and questions like do they even want to be found? That’s when it’s hard to tear yourself away from the immersive story Trevor Alan Foris has created.

There’s a part of the story where characters literally walk into and become part of a painting and that’s

Trevor Alan Foris’s The Octunnumi Fosbit Files Prologue was a great read. It’s bursting with fantastical characters and even more fantastical situations and twists and turns that kept me guessing at the end of every page. This was an adventure and then some… It’s written with young adults in mind but I think we’re all young at heart if we allow ourselves to be. I really enjoyed this book for its pure escapism and creativity. The author writes in a really easily readable, accessible and engaging ...more

This book was a real surprise for me. A positive one!
Whilst I have previously read futuristic dystopian novels, vampire and werewolf books, and some science fiction, I have always shied away from anything involving dragons, "faes" and "fairies" as being to "out there" for me. I therefore consider this my first proper "fantasy" novel.
Actually, from page one and the first mention of fairies, faes, weapons I did not understand and people with odd names, I thought I would not like this book and shou

I read a lot of books; I read every night before I go to sleep.
This is my new favorite world. I forgot a lot of the time that it was a debut novel. It moves quickly enough to keep you hooked, but gives you enough to get invested in the characters. It really is a roller coaster of emotions, characters having to face difficult choices, some of which become clearer later on. I really can not wait for the next book from Trevor Alan Foris, I read it far too quickly, it was over far too soon, so I wi

I liked this book by Foris. I wouldn't say I absolutely loved it, but as new authors go this was a pretty solid entry into a difficult science fiction field. There was a lot to wrap my head around as the book really got underway, but I wouldn't say it was complicated just for the sake of it. Everything had it's place and I think it all gelled pretty well overall. ...more

This book is the beginning of a series that I assume is going to be long, because the whole book is the prologue. I was shocked when I realized it wasn’t just the title, not to mention intrigued. I've been ignoring traditional novels for web novels recently because of their longevity, so I'm looking forward to the next installments in this series.
The book itself is pretty long, it took me a couple days to go through it and I’m usually a fast reader, but the story is interesting and I couldn’t wa

I was left guessing at every page, what will happen, the next characters to be introduced, and the situations that will come up next, and it’s what I love in my stories. Right from the first page, the story introduces two characters, Trad and Reig who are siblings and operatives of the Octonnumi Alliance, right in the middle of a war. They are currently eighteen, and it’s not the first time they’ve been reincarnated as eighteen year olds. The words paint the story and the plot for you as you rea ...more

Well the blurb promised me 'next level fantasy' and it definitely delivered.

Stick with it and you will get there, and be gifted with an amazing journey through time and space, whilst not actually le ...more

What a fantastic, well written and thought provoking book!
I found myself far too emotionally invested than I thought I would be. I felt completely engrossed in this new world and captivated by the characters gritty storylines. With twists and heart wrenching, stomach churning turns I was kept on my toes with each coming chapter! What fascinated me most was those that dwell within the forest (but I wont post any spoilers)....
I would highly recommend reading this book if you love a good fantasy.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this because it was a new author to me, but given what I had heard about the characters, deep plots and Foris descriptive writing style, I was convinced to give it a go.
Overall I found it a genuinely original story told well, with a host of characters that I was able to believe in. The fact that it's also a great page turner just elevates it even higher. I certainly recommend this e-book.

Better Than Life
“The Octunnumi Fosbit Files Prologue” by Trevor Alan Foris is a pure science fiction delight. He describes shifting worlds, shifting realities and shifting identities but at no point did I stop believing in the characters and think ‘no – really?’, despite how magical, mysterious and bizarre it all became. I loved how the characters all interacted with each other, especially the two main characters – a pair of teenage twin brothers. There is plenty of bickering and sarcasm throughout and the auth ...more

I took a punt on this, never having heard of the author, and I wasn't disappointed. If you like deep plots coupled great characters, this is for you. Foris takes you on a journey that skips between worlds & leaves you guessing at every turn of the page. I read (and have read) a great deal of SciFi. Occasionally I come across a book that stands out. This is such a book.This is an original, far from the usual same old, same old formulaic stuff. Well written, interesting characters and ideas.

To read a story from an author I had never heard about, for me, was a big risk. A refreshing and engrossing read from an author whose love of the fantasy genre is palpable in every page. Trevor Alan Foris’s ability to paint broad plot strokes across the canvas of his world, while still having you care so much for the individual players makes me think this author's story is only just beginning... As far as I am concerned this is a highly recommended E-Book. ...more

I chose a 5 star rating because unlike most books The Octunnumi explores more avenues.
The plot, theme, and character development are inspiring!!! I love when the author speaks about the settings and Trevor Alan Foris does this as good as any other author I have read.
An absolute must read for fans of this genre. The tales of The Octunnumi and everything that they get up to are enough to keep me gripped. My favorite part of the book by far were the characters.

Does fantasy fiction get more epic than this?
The answer is, if it does, I've yet the read it. 'The Octunnumi' by Trevor Alan Foris it a unique fantasy novel that is fun, exciting, all kinds of epic, and so well-written. I'm not even sure how to start describing the 'out there' plot, but here it goes. The Octunnumi is an alliance of individuals who have unique powers, that are used to protect the Innesomids, which are territories that share the same time and space. Rieg and Trad are members of th

Let me start by saying that The Octunnumi Fosbit Files Prologue is an absolute epic fantasy novel that you can totally lose yourself in.

Trevor Alan Foris has created an amazing and delightful world, filled with wonderful characters and as you read you never know what’s round the next corner. This is super quirky stuff – be prepared for a world of mind-reading where fiction and fact strangely intertwine and expect everything from androgynous Orcs and ten-foot-tall jugglers to multiple Ogagrely cr

First of all, I love this book starting from the cover, to the interior and the formatting. It works really well as an ebook, but if I could have a paperback look nearly as good, I would love it. It’s unlike any book I’ve seen before, and it was the first thing to catch my attention. I think the old-journal feel of the cover and interior of the book fits the story really well, too, which just made it all the more fun to read. I felt like I got sucked into the story more.

First of all, this is not for everyone from the format to the premise, the whole concept is a bit ‘out there’ and not everybody is going to ‘get it’ or like it. The Octunnumi asks you to take fantasy to the next level.

That said I am really impressed with the presentation of this book.

The Octunnumi is an online publication described as ‘digital virtual book’, sample pages can be found on the 'more' page under 'sneak a peek'.

Reading The Octunnumi by Trevor Alan Foris was an all round unique reading experience. I usually stick to actual books that I can hold, but decided to take the e-book plunge with some highly recommended fantasy fiction. What I got was a something that is hard to describe – this e-book is easily the most beautiful I have ever seen, looking like an old book that is uncovered one day in the attic that holds so many secrets that cannot be fathomed.

It took me a while to get into this book. It's unusual, because it doesn't follow the traditional narrative arc but once I got used to this format I really loved it, not only because of the complex, original plots, but because I was constantly challenged to figure out whether what was happening in each chapter was a 'good' or a 'bad' thing. Really interesting. Worth a read. It isn't always the easiest read - at times it felt slightly alien, as if it was translated from another language. But the ...more

This is a world where anything goes. If you can think it, it can happen.

I was recommended this book by a friend who usually has a good taste in books but has a preference towards the sci-fi genre. Because of this I begun this book with a degree of scepticism, unsure what I was going to unearth. Foris has created a world that his descriptive writing style made me forget my initial inhibitions and from the very start bought in to the interesting characters that he had created.
I prefer to read in old school style from a book but the way that this story is presented mak
