RC cover

So I got a pleasant surprise today, in the form of another review of Reborn City on Amazon. This is the second one in two days, which practically never happens to me. Naturally, I was surprised, but also rather pleased. Come November, Reborn City will have been out for three years, and it’s nice to see that it’s getting more recognition these days. With any luck, by the time I get the third book, Full Circle, out into the world, a lot more people will have come to like the books and the characters within.

So if you’re so new that you didn’t see the post from Thursday, Reborn City is the first book in a trilogy I started in high school. The series follows a street gang called the Hydras in the western projects of the titular city, the leaders of which have strange abilities and powers, which the leaders of the city have a dark interest in. Major themes of the novel include Islamaphobia, racism and prejudice, drug addiction, gang violence, and most of all, overcoming what other people and what you think of yourself. The second book, Video Rage, came out back in June.

I think I’m going to copy and paste the majority of the previous paragraph whenever I do a Reborn City post. It saves time.

Anyway, the latest review was left by someone named Amazon Customer (how mysterious!), who gave a four-star review of the book. Here’s what he/she/they/it had to say:

It’s a neat exercise in trying to see through the eyes of someone different from oneself. It incorporated a lot of fly comic-book-esque tropes. A good beginning effort of an up an coming new author who has some cool ideas to explore.

That’s the first time I or anything connected to me have been called fly since high school! I’m so happy!

Anyway, I listed reviews that go to show how great RC on Thursday, so I think I’ll skip that. However, if you want to see those other reviews, and maybe check out the book yourself, and maybe Video Rage as well, I’ll post those links down below.

That’s all for now, my Followers of Fear. Unless something comes up that needs blogging, it’s radio silence for the next couple of days. Until next time!
