Dark Enemy, Host Saga Book 5, officially launches tomorrow, Feb 4! But for the special VIPs, it is available now. This success comes after many trying times with the book as I endeavored to meet the demands of my great editors and beta readers. This had the effect of pushing the launch into 2020, but I think it was well worth it. Pre-launch reviews have been great with Five 5 Star reviews by Readers’ Favorite. Her are portions of those reviews:
“Intricately woven to grab your attention, Dark Enemy grabbed my attention from the get-go and would not let me put it down until I finished it . . . The pace is just perfect, it is fast enough to keep the story going but not too fast that you lose where you are and what is happening. The author has done a wonderful job of creating a richly detailed and believable universe with characters that are real. Incredible and entertaining!”
Rabia Tanveer for Readers’ Favorite, 5 Stars
“. . . The intrigue in the plot builds gradually, but when it hits, it becomes a real rollercoaster of action and tension for the rest of the novel, so there’s a really nice balance of character development for the series and all-out sci-fi military warfare to keep readers fascinated. Overall, Dark Enemy is a highly recommended science fiction novel for fans of the series so far: you won’t be disappointed by Van Childs’s latest endeavors.”
K.C. Finn for Readers’ Favorite, 5 Stars
“I was pulled in from the beginning by the beautiful prose and its fluidity . . . Dark Enemy is deftly plotted and the writing is highly descriptive, allowing readers to easily imagine the action and where it takes place. It features pulsating action, well-crafted scenes, and a setting that is transporting. The author’s gift for plot and character comes out neatly in this novel.”
Ruffina Oserio for Readers’ Favorite, 5 Stars
“I found Dark Enemy by Michael J Farlow to be a thoroughly enjoyable read, combining elements of adventure, excitement, danger, intrigue, and love into a complex, yet clearly painted picture of hope for the future . . . This is an adventure that will immerse you in a dynamic world of wonder and future possibilities as you chart an uncertain course through the dangers of unknown space.”
Steven Robson for Readers’ Favorite, 5 Stars
“. . . The balance of intrigue and humor is perfect and the storyline has some really well-plotted machinations to thrust it forward. To me, Farlow’s strength lies in his talent for character development and description . . . This is classic science fiction with modern themes and great writing that I’d recommend to those who enjoy the genre.”
