June 2, 2009 - PRLog -- This story is a retelling of the myths Richard Wagner used in composing his Ring Cycle of operas. Instead of taking place during the Dark Ages, this version takes place in the future after civilization has been destroyed by wars, plague and pollution. In this new version, the usual fantasy creatures have been replaced by aliens.   The short novel is published by eTreasures Publishing and is available in paperback and e-book formats including Kindle

The review:
. . . There are so many of the characters you can fall in love with and enjoy. Not to only mention the characters such as Fafner who has “criminal talents,” but also the flowing of the backgrounds the characters live in. I was thrilled when I could imagine all these characters in one of my favorite settings, Science Fiction.
The story does jump around from time to time. However, that doesn’t distract you from the robust characters, or the amazing background they play in. Quense makes sure the reader knows what comes next through such descriptive writing. I felt like I was reading one of my old time Science Fiction paperbacks, holding it until I was done. The pages will leave you wanting more. And reading this is what I suggest you do. You will fall madly in love with these characters, jump into their world, understand it and not want to put this book down; forgetting you have a book in your hand and imagining you are part of Quense’s world.
