About the Author

Kev is a bestselling UK author of fast-paced sci-fi mysteries & epic fantasy.

His 'Into The Rip' series represents a return to classic, fast-paced adventure sci-fi of the 50s but with a modern edge. 'Ripped' to a globally warmed 2454, Blue (named after his startling blue eyes) is plunged into adventures that take him to many worlds. But what is the secret behind his peculiar genetic history?

Vatic is a 'page turning burn of a read' - a sci-fi mystery with a terrific twist.

The IronScythe Sagas is pure adventure fantasy set in a world where two suns fill the sky and metals are forbidden, dangerous things. And introducing the hooded nemesis of delving himself--the enigmatic Cowl, the wielder of the land's own avenger, IronScythe.

Kev has worked as a driver's mate, factory gateman, barman, labourer, telesales operative, sales assistant, warehouseman, Student Union President, university IT helpdesk guy, British Rail signal software designer, premiership football website designer, mobile banking content team lead, gigging musician, graphic designer, stand-up comedian, sound engineer, improv artist, magazine editor and web journo.

A superb read, I can't recommend this book enough. Looking forward to reading his other work. The pace maybe fast, but the characterisation is most definitely present and correct, which to me makes the difference between a great read and a so-so read. It's a neat trick to make one care about the characters and have plenty of action. One is often at the expense of the other. But not here. The plot is interesting, with enough twists and turns to satisfy the who dunnits. The world of Blue is mapped out clearly for ScFi fans to easily imagine themselves in that universe. Will be re-reading this in a few years. Love it!

Blue is literally ripped from the life he knows. Well written, great character's, I really enjoyed this futuristic Sci-fi and gave it a 5 stars rating as it ticks all the right boxes for me. I imagine this story would appeal to teenagers and adults alike, really anyone that loves a good story and I look forward to reading more about Blue in the future.

"Blue Into The Rip" a treat for Sci Fi and Fantasy lovers! A book has to grip me from the first chapter and "Blue's" adventure certainly did that! A great book not only for YA's but also for the young at heart. Interesting characters and great content. Can't wait for the next instalment and will definitely recommend this book to family and friends!
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Thanks for a great read Kev - great work!!

How to adjust and how to cope in the future? A compelling tale of a bleak future where humans cling on against a world which has turned against them. A gripping read.

Thank you to the author for the review copy.

Blue didn't want to be in the future
...they didn't want him there either
A rip in the fabric of time, a far-flung globally warmed future, a flooded Earth and the only remainder of civilisation - a militaristic organisation living underneath `Desert Amazon'...

I've been reading a plethora of YA lately (and I have plenty more to come on my lists) and I'm often amazed at the quality to be found in fiction aimed at the younger market. This was no exception - an imaginative and involving time distortion tale that held my interest throughout.

"Blue" is a teenager with a right pair of parents and a little sister called Annie, who, whilst searching for his lost sister, ends up 400 years into the future...where life has changed, mostly due to global warming and mass flooding. There he gets involved in all sorts of shenanigans - in a world he does not recognise...

In a lot of ways, despite whats happening around him, Blue is a typical teenager - distracted by girls, often sent off on a tangent by "cool" stuff, but also pretty determined to reach his goal - however from the start and as the story progresses it becomes apparent that he is not quite so "typical" after all..

The story flowed well, had a terrific believable premise as far as how the future of our planet could look and some well imagined characters. There are some twists and turns, add to that an inventive writing style and you have all the ingredients for a great scifi teen read. Or in my case a great scifi 40something read...hey, age is a state of mind right?

Highly enjoyable. I shall look forward to the sequel. Recommended for the young at heart who like scifi and fantasy.

Happy Reading Folks!

There are a few occasions when you start to read a book and you get that little spark of 'this is going to be good' early on in the first chapter. This is one of those books and I was awake into the early hours reading it. Always a good sign!

Blue Into The Rip is marketed as YA fiction but as a forty something with a love of all things 'space' related I really enjoyed this book and would rate it very highly in my list to date of this genre and type.

The author has created a future world which is so different from what we know now but it isn't, for a change, all doom and gloom. He has made use of current science (and possibly sprinkled a little Star Trek in there too) to create a place where humans exist with most of their needs catered for. I loved the phrases he used for the military such as 'well met', 'be cool' etc as they are phrases associated with film/literature of today which added a little humour into the writing for me personally. The only critiscm I have is I didn't feel the explanations of words/terms used were needed in the middle of the text but it's a small point and simply a personal preference.

This book is the first installment in Blue's adventures and I will definitely be coming back for more. Young Adult time travel at its best.
