THE UNSATED: A Novel of Ancient Evil!



THE UNSATED: A Novel of Ancient Evil! Paperback – May 22, 2021

Reviewed in the United States on June 8, 2021

This book was a great read! The Tokienesque quest with the Stephen Kinglike gore and evil lurking throughout the story is written in a style that sweeps you along for the ride. You are in the mind of the main character, a soldier named Travis Lehrman, who is pulled into the role of the reluctant hero. He finds himself pursuing the source of an ancient evil and trying to navigate spacetime to prevent destruction of his world. The author knows how to turn a phrase and paints a vivid picture that borders on cinematographic. I am hoping there will be a sequel!

After having worked professionally in the media business as a Director of Photography and a Cameraman for many years, the Covid plague completely shut me down. My work was gone. I decided I needed to do something with all that free time! I had written screen plays and short stories over the years, but never a book.

So, I wrote a novel of fantastically escapist science fiction perfect for lockdowns and other reasons to just get away from where you are for a while, and titled it THE UNSATED.

After much work and many edits over the past 15 months, it is finally finished. I hope you enjoy it! Thanks so much for reading!
