The BookViral Review:

A gratifyingly vivid read with depth, intrigue and an edgy narrative, Ben Kilgore leads his readers on an unforgettable journey to an Earth many thousands of years removed from the one we now know. 

If Colonization Science Fiction is to be convincing it has to feel utterly plausible and yet far too many releases in the genre prove disappointing and it’s for this reason that Kilgore’s novel stands out.

An insightful writer Kilgore writes with a strong eye for detail to deliver a taut, compelling read. Fans of his previous releases Will Normal Return and Through the Raging Storm will know he has a fine eye for the pressures and poignancies of his characters which combined with his ability to craft an intricate and intelligent narrative rapidly draws his readers in.

Escape From Tridon is world-building at its most thoughtful. Vibrant, bold, yet subtly nuanced to create a genuine sense of time and place. Kilgore understands the devices of truly engaging science fiction and he owns them to take his readers on an unrestrained journey that treats the imagination. There are the requisite elements of action and adventure with the farsightedness of science fiction but there is also a strong element of social commentary as his small disparate group of colonists struggle with new cultural dynamics.

Ultimately though it’s Kilgore’s characters that must take the honours. From his protagonist Commander of the New Dawn, Nireem to supporting characters like Ecurben, Gergin and Enaida each are wonderfully observed, with each bringing a prevailing sense of gravitas to the story, whilst nicely nuanced dialogue adds much to the prevailing sense of authenticity.

With many challenges ahead, not least the presence of intelligent life with which they have yet to make contact, Kilgore has positioned Escape From Tridon as the start of a potentially epic series and he is off to a great start.

Brenham writes with the authoritative voice of his experience as a Texas law enforcement officer for over twenty years and it’s to his credit that his plot stands in contrast to many of today’s thrillers which often seem simple-minded and lacking in genuine depth.

The Occult -why the fascination with dark fiction?

While the occult is a broad umbrella, hiding its many forms under its silky black folds, it’s concepts have endured through time, enjoying many a resurgence through the ages. The term ‘occultism’, is relatively new, not used in French or English literature, for instance, until the 19th Century, although the term ‘occult sciences’ was commonly used in the 16th Century to describe practices such as astrology, alchemy, mysticism, and natural magic.

Authors writing about prejudice and racism in literature

Whilst the issues of prejudice and discrimination are multi-faceted and complicated beyond belief, a key moment for me was the day I picked up ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’. Harper Lee implicitly drilled down the relative unfairness of human existence into my 12-year-old brain, creating a sense of outrage that has stayed with me throughout my life.
