3.0 out of 5 stars Conventional adventure story surpassing mention of alien location 3 Jan. 2014
By Anonymous - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a well written short story with interesting characters and a good plot. However, it seems to me that it was mislabeled as science fiction. I only realized the setting was an alien planet at about the 60 percent point. There was a passing mention of three moons and an alien creature (which features prominently later in the story). I wish science fiction aspect was clearer earlier.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Novella 9 Jan. 2014

Very decent novella. I wish it had been longer, & had gone more into the creatures, & their background, among other things. Decent character development, though, for a short story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that good. 23 Feb. 2014
By John J. Palmer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What started as an interesting idea never actually got developed. It seemed like the author figured since it was a short story, actual character development was unnecessary, and instead he kept throwing in random elements. Space mercenaries, advanced technologies, alien monsters, and rising from the dead all get thrown in to the story without the author actually fleshing out any of them. I ended up confused, not entertained.

I think that there a lot of elements to this story that could make for some very interesting reading, but it simply does not work here.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very Entertaining and Well Written. 17 Oct. 2014

I liked this book or novella as they call it. It was well written and an interesting story line. The editing was excellent. No repeated sentences or words like you see other self publish books. This one flowed really well, was easy to read and very entertaining. There is some unexpected turns in the story which makes a story that moves rig along and keeps it interesting. I really enjoyed Empty Sea, I think others will too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Empty Sea is a winner 28 Nov. 2013
By Ann Kirihara - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished this latest book from Dennis Yates and I was totally enveloped in the story. The way he describes the scenery around what's going on really makes you see it in your mind and feel like you're there. Dennis really is a great storyteller. I'm glad it was a short story cause I couldn't wait to find out what was happening and how it was going to end. I'd love to know how he comes up with his storylines because he never disappoints his readers!
