What people are saying about Fires of Man...

"Epic science fiction stories aren't hard to find, but [Fires of Man is] a worthy and unique addition to the field. The author knows his craft, combining a smooth writing style with a flair for story-telling, an interesting fictional world, and characters you'll care about."

—Ally Shields, author of the Guardian Witch series

"Everything was perfect, from the concept to the writing to the characterization. The main story arc (a cold war flaring up) was presented through a myriad subplots, each narrated through the eyes of a different character. They all had their own motives, fears and hopes; from the chilling villain to the child Messiah... Highly recommended!"

—Nicholas C. Rossis, author of the Pearseus series

"An awesome read from start to finish - thoroughly enjoyable and believable science fiction at its finest. Fires of Man is expertly written; the book vividly pieces together the most minute details of each scene in a way that creates a tangible backdrop for this excellent story without being too verbose. The author's military structure is very interesting and well defined, and the battle scenes are epically intense and emotional."

—C.E. Gillihan, author of The Accord: Escape

"The story is fast-paced and is a quick and entertaining read. The success of Fires of Man does not rely purely on its magical or fantasy element, but on the range and diversity of the characters themselves... Dan Levinson seems to be laying the ground for something huge and I can’t wait to read the sequel."

—Ann Marie Meyes, author of Up in the Air

His greatest hopes for the...

The world is Cassie Fremont’s playground.

Her face is on the cover of every newspaper, she has no homework, no curfew, and no credit limit, and she spends her days traveling the country with her friends, including a boy who would flirt with death just to turn her head. Life is just about perfect—except that those newspaper headlines are about her bludgeoning her crush to death with a paintball gun, she has to fight ravenous walking corpses every time she steps outside, and one of her...
