Kurzbeschreibung

He couldn’t remember who he was. Even his name wasn’t his own, taken from the brand of shoes he’d been found wearing. Things seemed to be going okay though, he’d already made a couple unlikely friends and figured out a way to make ends meet in the downtown burrough of Port Montaigne. One could live on the kindness of friends and waffles forever if it weren’t for the looming global apocalypse. Unfortunately, he can’t remember if he had a hand in creating, or preventing, the coming chaos. Uncertain whether he is a savior or a malefactor, Silverstein and his new friends seek out clues to the impending Shut Down.


The Uroboros Saga is character driven science fiction, published three times per year. Each book continues the story with an array of colorful characters and environments. It is written to address and explore the idea of technology that extends and expands the modern notion of identity, and the sort of dystopia that such technology could create. The global fiscal apocalypse that occurs in the midst of that exploration is just there to be charming window dressing. Enjoy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen So. Good. 4. August 2015
Von threehandsomeboys - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I didn't know what to expect when I ordered this book, and I wasn't just pleasantly surprised, I was honestly blown away by this book. So much to talk about with this book and this series, but the obvious place to start is with the characters. In the Amazon summary of Uroboros Saga Book 1, the series is described as "character driven science fiction". Perfect. The characters and your connection with them, positive or negative, is what really keeps you engaged in this book. I love how dynamic each character is. There are not filler characters in this series, just these awesome people that you want to find out more and more about, which you do, if you keep reading. The characters are not typical at all, nor are they so over the top that they aren't believable. They are simply humans (even the non-human ones) making choices in this surprisingly believable future world of Port Montaigne. I love the interaction of Silverstein, Taylor and Ezra with their setting and with their plot. They are all testing this totally unpredictable around them and then seeing what happens so they can decide what to do next. These are not passive characters, but they are so real. Who wouldn't be more comfortable at home on the couch eating some ramen, but when the world is literally falling apart around you, you have to do something. And they do. They aren't setting out to be heroes, but they are pulled in, and they are thoughtful and smart enough that they get pulled in pretty hard. They don't make stupid decisions, they make well-educated decisions, and they are so respectable because of that, even if they make some wrong turns. They do a little acting, and then they do some reacting.

Subject matter in this series is so spectacular! Any preconceived notions you have will go out the window, and you will gladly just let them go, because you will be in the zone for this series. Some series are written to entertain, others are written to get you to think. Personally I've been enjoying a lot of nonfiction lately and been in more of that thinking mode. This series will get your mind going and you won't be able to stop. One of my favorite things about this book is the exploration of human nature and how that ties into technology. I'm kind of a technology-phobe and this book actually changed some of my opinions about technology, in ways I never expected. Not because this book is trying to change your opinion, just because you see all these what ifs... You look around you at all these cell phones and tablets and even down at your own e-book copy of Uroboros Saga Book 1 and you think, yep, I can totally see all of this happening.

The entertainment factor is at a premium, so I don't want to downplay that. Usually when you have a pretty good "thinking" book, the entertainment value suffers. This is not the case in the Uroboros Saga. Surprisingly this was a fast and easy read given how much information is introduced. The new concepts, vocabulary, and setting are introduced in a nontechnical way, just in a good story telling way. I think Silverstein's character really helps with this, as he wakes up without his memories. This is convenient as a way to show the audience this new world through plot, rather than through constant explanation, but it doesn't seem preconceived in any way, I only thought of how well it worked as I was writing this review. I consider myself quite well-read, and the plot of this book is unlike anything I've encountered thus far. Mr. Walker's writing style allows for this "watch as story unfolds" narration, rather than history book or getting hit over the head with types narration. The pacing is about as good as it gets. This is a series read, but I read it before purchasing the rest of the series to test it out. This is not a stand alone book. It is entertaining, no doubt, but there is so much left unanswered that, let's just face it, you will be purchasing the rest of this series as it comes out.

This is simply one of those stay up late and read while you're waiting in your car for something type of books. It's not so on the edge of your seat that you can't breathe, but there is plenty of that going on in between some really thoughtful dialogue as well. With the quick, easy (but still mature) pacing and the straightforward length of the book, it creates a nice weekend escape. If you order the kindle version, however, like I did, you may resort to grounding your children from the iPad for crimes they may or may not have committed in order to read Uroboros Series. You will not want to wait for anyone or anything to keep reading. There is some violence and a little bit of shock factor in this series, just enough that I would describe this as a teen/adult read, not preteen and under. Luckily, enough books were out in the series when I started that I got a really great Uroboros Saga fix and now just waiting for Book 5 is something to look forward to, like your birthday, not like, people will be knocked down on my way to my computer when it comes out sort of thing. But, seriously, I'm not saying that no one will be harmed on my way to the computer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exciting introduction to a new series! 23. Juli 2013
Von E. Phillips - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Going into this new book series, I thought the theme and problems were simple, but by the end the author had built it up to a whole mess of larger issues that I can't wait to see expanded upon and ultimately resolved. I'm SUPER interested in the different types of characters, psychics, half-humans and clones that he introduces us to, and I absolutely love Silverstein, Ezra and Taylor. They are a dynamic lot, each complementing the other two in a variety of ways, making for an unstoppable team.
The story moves at a steady pace which really makes it hard to put the book down, and the moment a shift happens between past and future, the readers eyes are opened wider and the dire situation our heroes face grows larger and more complex. Love, love, loved the book, and can't wait to read the next one!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hard to put down 27. Juli 2013
Von Parker Zane - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Arthur Walker manages to grab you by the throat and pull you into his futuristic, pre-apocolyptic world filled with images so vivid you have a hard time finding your way back to reality. He writes with an intelligence I haven't been able to find in a book for quite a while giving you enough confidence in the plot to know something is up his sleeve. And he doesn't disappoint. The ending is a pleasant twist from your average story leaving me salivating for the next book. In closing: In a fast paced mystery of who-am-I, each page peels back another layer pulling you deeper into the Uroboros Saga.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wicked Imagination! 12. August 2013
Von J. Wadsworth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Well I see why this is a "saga" because it leaves you wanting more, a LOT more! By the second chapter you are on one seriously wild ride. The author, who has a wicked imagination, keeps you on your toes at all times. Danger lurks around every corner but danger also looks like everyone else, and you'll be surprised when you find out what "everyone else" is exactly. Just when you think you might have something figured out.... you don't. Not at all. What a great read, I can't wait for more!

5.0 von 5 Sternen More tentacles than you can shake a squid at 28. November 2015
Von jd goff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
As a reader I tend to make my own somewhat untraditional associations, which do evolve as I delve deeper into a book. From the first chapter, I was reminded of Neville Shute’s KINDLING. However, soon I was comparing the initial UROBOROS book to the film TOTAL RECALL. By the end I had nothing to compare it. Walker’s book is a refreshingly complicated affair, sprouting multiple tentacles with each passing chapter. Rather than peeling away layers to get down to the core, here one is removed only to reveal two more, and then four, and so on. This is a fascinatingly intricate dystopian work of corporate-greed, cloning, AIs, and gene-manipulation. Throw in some main characters who know nothing about their true natures, and this plot becomes a veritable casserole. A mighty tasty one, I must add. The imagination at work here is astounding. The three primary characters, Silverstein, Taylor, and Ezra, are the backbone of this tale. Which with the vast amount of science, technology, the huge, social tiered-city of the future, the plethora of characters (some staying, some merely passing through), and a pending global apocalypse, Walker has done a remarkable thing in keeping those three main characters at the forefront, and not losing them in the myriad alleys of downtown, midtown and uptown, the numerous clones, the doctors, scientists, drones, cops, collectors, and everything else he has going on. UROBOROS is an awesomely thought-out, wonderfully well-written, and intriguingly plotted sci-fi adventure-thriller-warning-homage.
