Recently, I received a copy of The Wyvern in the Wilderlands by Eddie Patin. I’m a huge fan of Larry Correia’s Monster Hunter books, so this looked interesting, to say the least. I was not disappointed either.
The book is a wild ride between universes. I don’t want to give the book away, but let’s just say you will constantly be trying to figure out how the hero is even still alive. The action is very fast-paced and if I were playing the lead in this, I wouldn’t have survived five minutes dealing with the monsters that our hero Jason beats time and again. The life expectancy in some of these wild places is less than zero.
The book captivated me from start to finish and that is not easy to do. I plan on reading the whole series and after you jump into the book, you will too. Rarely do I see characters described so vividly that I can fully picture them the way I do in this book. And you will love not only the story but the ending. It’s a rollercoaster from top to bottom. Even my husband is reading it.
If you are into fantasy and sci-fi, this book is definitely for you. If you love monster hunting, this series is excellent.
Here is the synopsis from Amazon:
Explore other Universes.
Hunt Deadly Monsters.
Make a Profit.
Jason always loved dinosaurs as a kid. He never thought that one day he’d be trapped on a dinosaur world struggling to stay alive.
This is the story of Jason Leaper of Earth, universe 934. In the mind-bending expanse of parallel universes and higher dimensions, the unexpected death of an alternate Jason Leaper launches our hero’s boring life into a wild adventure of survival, fantastic creatures, and bizarre other worlds!
All Jason Leapers across the infinite multiverses have the ability to rift–to open portals through other dimensions to shift between alternate realities. And when the last survivors of the Reality Rifters–an interdimensional Monster Hunter crew–come looking for Jason 934, the directionless man suddenly finds his latent powers awakened and his life is changed forever. When he is suddenly teleported to the Wilderlands, a vicious and primordial alternate Earth overrun with dinosaurs, primitive savages, and epic wilderness, Jason is cast into a visceral struggle for basic survival and needs to figure out his rifting powers in a hurry if he expects to get home. And when the monster hunting planeswalkers finally catch up to him, will Jason Leaper 934 slay the apex predator in the region and take his place in the Reality Rifters?
The Wyvern in the Wilderlands is a fast-paced survival story and is the first book in the “Monster Hunting for Fun and Profit” series about Jason Leaper 934 and his planes-walking Reality Rifters, Monster Hunters for hire. If you love books about guns, survival, vicious and terrible mythical monsters, cosmic horror, time travel, DINOSAURS, and exploring strange new worlds … read this today!
If you are looking for a great present to give others this holiday season, I would definitely recommend these books. You’ll be hooked in no time. If you are old enough to remember “Sliders” and “Quantum Leap” and you loved those shows, you will love this book. If not, then you are in for a new treat that will make you want to watch those shows.
Happy monster hunting! You can get your copy at Amazon.
