Aaron Hodges was born in 1989 in the small town of Whakatane, New Zealand. He studied for five years at the University of Auckland, completing a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology and Geography, and a Masters of Environmental Engineering. After working as an environmental consultant for two years, he grew tired of office work and decided to quit his job and explore the world. During his travels he picked up an old draft of a novel he once wrote in High School (titled The Sword of Light) and began to rewrite the story. Six months later he published his first novel, Stormwielder, and hasn't looked back since.
Aaron Hodges has excelled himself in this new sci fy/dystopian series! Congratulations! The science applied to the plot is very realistic, not that I'm an expert, but, every experiment is described as if it's real. I was totally hooked from the beginning, the feelings described so well, I could really feel the hurt, despair, struggles,... I couldn't stop myself feel and be at one with the characters, there were moments I had tears rolling down my cheeks till the end! This is the end of "boys don't cry", and I'm glad they can let go their feelings! Looking forward to the next release!!
LOVED this book. Another winner from Aaron Hodges. His fantasy stuff is amazing, and I'm now a huge fan of his sci fi. Great character-building, really got to know them well through the multiple POVs. The story was incredibly engaging, I stayed up late to finish it in one go. Not much violence and no sex. Really fantastic storytelling. If you haven't yet checked our this author's work, I highly recommend it. Five stars - now hurry up with book 2!
