Origins (Century City Book 1) by Mike Solyom

Origins (Century City, #1)Origins by Mike Solyom
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A well-crafted collection of short stories...

Mike Solyom's novel " Origins (Century City Book 1)" has all the elements of a great science-fiction military-based plotline using an alternate version of the present-day. From the opening pages the book is extremely visual. The author never bores with details, but the scenes are descriptive enough that they come vibrantly alive in the reader's mind as if watching a major motion picture.

This is what the Alternate-History Fiction genre is all about. Alternate History looks at history and asks the question: 'What If?' What if British India hadn't occurred? What would have happened if the American capital city had been built elsewhere - say, where New Orleans is today? Would that have altered the course of history? Alternate history can ask and answer so many questions - and sets your thoughts chasing off on all sorts of trails!

I absolutely enjoyed this collection of short stories and give the book a well-deserved five stars. Highly recommended and looking forward to reading more from this author.
