Really, where did the time go?
A new review of “City of the Broken Gate” by local author Mike Wolff:
At first, I was a bit skeptical about this story. The dialogue in the first part of the book was a bit weak in my humble opinion, but the more I read, the more it grew on me. Knowing the author is also a comic writer, it felt as it he was writing short sentences to fit into a text bubble. But that didn’t last long.
I was immediately drawn into this story. It had so much involved; heroes, meta-heroes, aliens, ancient beings, ancient technologies, myths, legends, conspiracy theories…what’s not to like? But would it be too much for one book? Turns out no. There were parts of this book that were simply brilliant. I would have never put all these things together as the author has. It still felt like a graphic novel/comic, but that didn’t detract from the whole. I recommend this novel to anyone that enjoys Fantasy, Science Fiction, Pulp Fiction, Graphic Novels and Comics with heroes.
