The BookViral Review:

A superb conclusion to Smitley’s epic Soothsayer series Powerless proves nothing less than a masterclass in fantasy fiction, with its scope, depth of characterization and fascinating settings earning it parity with the best in its genre.

Far too many epic fantasy novels are thwarted by a lack of honest conversation, which makes it hard to follow a complex story. But Smitley is an inventive writer and has once again ensured our suspension of disbelief doesn’t collapse by keeping his characters wholly authentic. More importantly, Smitley knows how to hit the emotional buttons and keep the twists coming without veering off course.

First and foremost amongst his characters is the last Soothsayer Banzu Greenlief who is strong, resilient, damaged and always believable. His character is the engine that drives the Soothsayer series and allows Smitley to pose metaphysical questions about our ability to change not only the world but ourselves. Whilst Banzu’s love for Spellbinder Melora Callisticus leads us to reflect not only on the pathos that surrounds them but how far we’d be willing to go in pursuit of our heart’s desire.

Deliciously dark Smitley’s love of noir and his distinct gift for occasionally wrong-footing readers keep this final instalment in his trilogy balanced on a knife-edge throughout whilst imaginative world-building bleeds through every chapter. Thus creating a multifaceted narrative that delivers immersive storytelling to spare.

Sadly Smitley’s trilogy is at its end but he has unquestionably succeeded in delivering an epic read and Powerless is unreservedly recommended.

How Science Fiction Authors Are Shaping Our Future

As fantastical as science fiction seems, there is often something familiar about the incredible concepts dreamt up by its writers. In fact, not only familiar at times but eerily accurate about future advances. Is this some kind of scientific prophesy? Is there something sinister going on?
