"Great book! I’m not one for rehashing the plot (that’s what the summary is for on the book description page), but trust me when I say you’ve never read anything like this before! It’s quite dense and is not for the stupid or feeble minded… trust me. But if you like science-fiction, action, dystopian, and/or literary fiction, you’ll enjoy this one. It’s not a fast and easy read by any stretch, but it will take you through new concepts and perspectives that you’ve never thought of before. Very cool!"(5 stars) Essie Harmon; Goodreads, Librarything, Shelfari, Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers

    “Future Prometheus: Emergence and Evolution is actually a set of two novellas (named Emergence and Evolution, respectively). I can’t quite say that I’ve ever really read anything like it before, a great combination of Science Fiction, but with a very modern, almost ‘pop-culture” feel and with the addition of the steady stream of famous (and not so famous) quotes from classics, it was a new experience for me all around, and one I really enjoyed. I liked Jose a lot, in fact all the characters were richly imagined and authentic. There are many complex subplots woven throughout and I can definitely see fantasy/sci fi fans really liking it. Ready for the next!" (4 stars) Gillian Hancock; Goodreads, Librarything, Shelfari, Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers

    "At times I found myself wavering around while reading “Future Prometheus ” by J.M. Erickson. At first I was immediately grabbed into the story, and became immersed in the intricate world building and plot development. But there were times I felt the story wasn’t as focused as I’d like, with some conversations and scenes maybe weren’t necessary and perhaps could have been eliminated to tighten the narrative some. But at the same time, the pacing was fast and there was pretty much nonstop action and some unexpected crazy developments toward the end. It felt fresh and unpredictable in SciFi, always a nice experience, especially in a genre that is fraught with copycats. Really impressed with the way the author managed to find and use all those perfect references and quotes! I’d be interested in continuing on with this series, and would be interested in checking out other books this author has written as well."

    "Wow, what an insane book! Holy bananas!! Okay, I don’t even know where to begin because so much happens and I don’t want to give anything away… “Future Prometheus: Emergence and Evolution” by J. M. Erickson is one of the most original and just flat out interesting fantasy/ science fiction novels I’ve ever read! I liked it for so many different reasons, first the writing was stellar. The strong word choice and fluid prose makes it a very easy book to sink into. There are enough descriptions where you can picture everything perfectly, but not so much that it bogs down the pacing. I wish I knew what the characters looked like better though, because some of them I had hard time keeping straight. I liked that there were things I haven’t seen in other books like this before and it just felt more “intelligent” than others I’ve read, I think because of the multi-dimensional plotlines that even while fantastical/futuristic still relate to the world today. Amazing job!" (5 stars). Stacy Decker; Goodreads, Librarything, Shelfari, Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers

Future Prometheus: Emergence & Evolution

Future Prometheus is one of the most original and well-crafted books I’ve read in a long time! I was completely drawn in from the get-go, and absolutely loved the author’s use of description and character dialogues, and his attention to detail in crafting the world-building. This is a sci-fi book, but there is something of everything… mystery, thriller, action, drama, history…love all the literary quotes! Excellent editing, and I will love to read more from J.M Erickson in the future… happy to see he has quite the backlist. Will be checking out his “Birds of Flight” series after this one."

"Excellent plot…only a few minor issues. The good part was that this is an excellent novel (well, 2 novellas, really) that captured my attention from the beginning and never once let it go. Each scene was riveting, imaginative, and well executed. The descriptions were good and kept to a minimum. There was no lull in the action…All in all a wonderful story with a great plot and characters that kept me eagerly glued to my kindle. The only problem for me was the heavy use of italics, which is hard for me to read. Almost got to the point where I wanted to skip the log entries as it was nothing but paragraphs of italicized text on my kindle. But I read it…This may not really bother some people, but it does me. HOWEVER, even with that said, I really did enjoy this book and would read more from this author. He has a natural gift for designing a brilliant, well-rounded story and developing unique, memorable characters." (5 stars) Laura Clarke; Goodreads, Librarything, Shelfari, Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers
