Dexter is a writer and game-enthusiast from North Carolina. He was homeschooled by his parents after being diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. Being a creative, highly-motivated individual, Dexter officially began writing books at the age of fifteen, and published his first novel “Felix Faust,” at seventeen. When he is not writing, Dexter spends much of his time gaming, studying, or contemplating new plot details and stories in his head. Dexter’s ultimate goal is to get a degree in Robotics and contribute to the subjugation of humanity by artificial intelligence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive New Series for Teens & Young Adults 14 July 2012
By A. Rockey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm not done reading Felix Faust (The Arcane Insurrection, Book 1) yet, but I had to say that my 16 year old son kept reading it on my Kindle and loves it, so I bought it for him in paperback. He's an avid reader, and he thinks it's great! I am also enjoying it and find the characters refreshing and interesting and the story intriguing. I'll post more when I'm done. My son and I are hoping Book 2 will be published soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Original Read 17 Jun. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was an entertaining read. It has a good pace and plot. I also found it refreshing to find a series that doesn't involve the over-used vampires, werewolves, wizards, long-lost magical parents, etc. I look forward to reading the 2nd installation of this series!

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit on the technical side, but an evocative story nonetheless 28 May 2013
By Sean P. Endress - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All of the opinions below are entirely my own.

Felix Faust was a character who I initially had a struggle with liking. He was cocky, closed-off, and what was more infuriating, he could really back up his confidence with power. It's a powerful author indeed who could take such a character and make him engaging, interesting, and get me to root for him - and Dexter Morgenstern is that author. Admittedly, the first portion of the book is a bit of a slog - it doesn't start off terribly interesting, but when the story picks up, it -really- picks up.

Morgenstern prefers a first-person writing style, which, when combined with his notably aloof protagonist, creates a highly unique view of the story and the world in which it is set, creating a generally fascinating reading experience. However, the book faces a significant issue in its technicalities - that is, as Faust explores and learns about his powers, he does so in a dry, analytical manner, requiring the reader to wade through several pages of abstract terminology. This bogged down the plot, and if I weren't such an analytical person myself, it might have brought the book down to a three star rating - if it's not to your taste, be warned.

The other trouble I had was with the end. For the plot resolution, the character development, the events and action, all of it was at a peak, and made it the highlight of the book. Endlessly fascinating, I couldn't put the book down as I neared its conclusion. However, I was often jarred by editing mistakes; several homonyms slipped through, as well as typos and mechanical problems. There were a handful scattered throughout, but they appeared with irritating frequency near the end.

Still, for all this, Felix Faust is an entertaining and engrossing read, most of the time. However, readers/parents of readers take note: This work contains graphic violence and sexual content.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Awesome Read 16 Nov. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received a free copy of this book as part of a goodreads group giveaway.

I was pretty sure that i was going to like this story from reading the blurb but i really was surprised at how much i liked it. I wish we could rate in half stars as i would have given this book 4.5 stars if i could.

I thought the characters were well thought out and described. The story line flowed well and there was plenty of events that kept you wanting to read on to find out what happened and the solution they came up with. This is not really any romance within this book so if you don't mind a book were the characters fall in love within the first few pages, this might be a good book for you.

I would recommend this book for ages 16+. I can't wait to read the next book in the series to find out what happens next.
