Travis started working on The Revenant Wyrd Saga several years back and he is very happy he did because hearing and documenting Jovian and Angelica’s story has been one wild ride for him.
He lives in a remote part of upstate New York and hoofing around my neck of the woods gives him a ton of inspiration for his novels.
He loves research, and speculating on different ideas and theories.
I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
On the verge of awakening to self-awareness, Asher has secrets hidden within he has yet to discover. Trying to adapt to his new normal without his biological family and his beloved Conner, Asher is trying desperately to survive. Encountering new friends along the way, he finds strength for hope and a new life and future. As an old fashioned battle of good and evil ensues, Asher may find he is the saviour or destroyer of those he loves and cares about most. This is a new world that belongs to the zombies and the Necromancers. No one is safe, even the virus immune Asher. Some will live. Others will be lucky enough to have a friend put a bullet through their brain. The not so lucky will be dragged off and eaten alive.
Zombies, gore, witchcraft, m/m romance oh my! This book is not a fairy tale to read to your children before tucking them into bed. With just the first sentence, I was grabbed and pulled into the action packed, heart pounding gore fest. Often I held my breath, feeling like I was home alone in the dark watching a horror movie, too afraid to watch and too afraid to move or look away.
Asher St. Paul is a well developed main character who moved me to tears with his tenderness towards those he loved and those he lost. At the same time, he is a tough gun toting guy I would want fighting on my side against zombie hordes. With an ensemble of hunks, tough chicks, good guys and bad girls, the secondary characters were as equally exciting as the protagonist.
Travis J. Simmons is masterful at moving the plot quickly and never derails the fantastic storytelling. Keeping the readers guessing with clues that peak interest without giving the ending away, Simmons pulls off a surprising and climatic conclusion. Even Agatha Christie would agree this is a perfect “whodunnit” mystery.
While the m/m romance isn’t graphic, Simmons still manages to make the love scenes steamy and with enough material for the reader to easily use a vivid imagination to fill in the blanks. Due to the graphic violence more than the m/m romance, this book is suitable for older readers. With a sequel sure to be on the way, I have only one complaint. Write faster Mr. Simmons.
