Well, that’s the entire story folks.
After six complete books, it’s been a long journey. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.
Please, let me know what you think of the book, the ending and the series as a whole, whether good or bad. It’s that kind of feedback that allows me to determine what techniques work and which don’t.
It’s all about the story; and this is the best one I’ve read. It was challenging and enjoyable on so many levels. I was drawn into the whirlpool of the plot, like a black hole, and thrust out at the end, fully satisfied.
Ed (from an advanced reader)
Very good conclusion to the series. I had it 15 minutes after it was released on the 16th, but had to delay reading it as our library had the VERY LAST Tom Clancy book ever come in and I had to read that one first as I like Tom Clancy books AND, being a library book, [I had] limited time to read before it was due.
Kind of a surprise ending in book 6, but so far I liked all your books[. I] have all 8 to date[. Keep] up the good writing. [I especially enjoy that] your books are reasonably priced. [I’m reading] another [author] online but will not purchase [his book] as [he] wants $20 for it [and] I won’t pay over $10 for any book that is not a collectors item!
Amazon Review by: Mr. Rowland R Denniss, Feb. 2014: Good read
It’s one of those books you don’t want to put [down] and when you have finished you wished it would carry on.
Amazon Review by: Techie, Sep. 2014:
“Catalyst” final book. Great Sci-Fi in a package that will make you examine your own beliefs.
This is an excellent book that I downloaded from another site. It’s the last in the Catalyst series and pulls together all the elements, intrigue, plot lines, and human relationships which it had been building upon with the other books. Has some definitely scary parts, as well as a healthy dose of sexual activity. I highly recommend this series to any who like believeable sci-fi together with an adult sexual component. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that it still has a few typos and syntax errors which a good proofreader should be able to pick out.

Bravo! A wonderful wrap. It’s all about the story; and this is the best one I’ve read. It was challenging and enjoyable on so many levels. I was drawn into the whirlpool of the plot, like a black hole, and thrust out at the end, fully satisfied. Thank You!
