Hi Everyone

Volume I in the Falcon Boy: A Fairly Hopeless Hero series has just received another Five Star review on Amazon. Here it is reprinted below:

Falcon Boy and Bewilder Bird versus Dr Don’t Know in a Battle for all the Life of all the Planets

‘Trying to tear my 8 & 10 year old sons away from their games consoles and the Disney XD channel is a constant battle in our house, with me usually ending up on the losing side!
Well for two glorious weeks, after purchasing this book, the Nintendos and TV just sat in the corner and gathered dust.

Being an avid (but slightly tight-fisted) reader myself, I was scouring my kindle for cheap (or preferably free!) books to read. With so much choice, I resorted to my usual trick of only looking at books who’s covers caught my eye. This book leapt straight out at me, it is quite a simple design but obviously has had a lot of thought put into it and, in my mind, is visually quite stunning. So I took a punt and bought it. And boy, am I glad I did!

After reading a good few chapters myself in the first sitting, I decided that my boys needed to read this book as well, whether they wanted to or not! So I started reading it to them for half an hour or so before their bedtime.They were as instantly hooked as I was.
The absolutely insane but, somehow, still believable characters, the strange world they inhabit, the way the narrative jumps from one crazy situation to another in the blink of an eye and the authors witty asides to the reader make this book a compelling read for all, whether aged 8, 10 or 40 (ish).
This book has kept us all entertained throughout, with very many laugh out loud moments. It has a humour that works on many levels but without ever being anywhere near offensive.(which seems to be quite unusual these days).
Also, we all agreed that this story and these characters would be great transferred to the screen. If not a film, it would definitely make a fantastic animated series and would certainly not look out of place on the aforementioned Disney XD Channel.

My only gripe is that there is not a sequel yet and I have two sons pestering me on an almost daily basis to check the kindle to see if one is out yet.
So, Please sir, can we have some more?…………………..’

Inspired by his passion for films and video games, Barnaby Taylor loves writing dystopian science fiction and horror. He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: http://bit.ly/VIRO1UKKindle http://bit.ly/VIROBOOK1 Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at www.falconboy.ie.
