About the Author
Sean McMahon is the author of Fir Lodge, the first novel in The Restarter Series, and has saved the world countless times. From the comfort of his sofa. Utilising a controller, as a conduit for his actions. He also believes he invented the concept of the digital photo-frame, but has no way to prove it. Sean lives in England with his family. In his spare time, he loves watching movies, reading, is an avid gamer, and enjoys walking his ridiculously-energetic Staffordshire bull terrier, Mindy. He also spends his quieter moments making contingency plans for surviving in the event of a potential zombie-apocalypse. He is very active on Social Media, and you can contact him via his website at www.restarterlodge.com Sean also once took a leak standing next to Simon Pegg at a press event. To this day, nobody cares.

Once I’d established a feel for the rhythm of
Sean’s style of writing, I was hooked.
With likeable characters, hidden film references and humor that warranted a chuckle or 2 out loud along with typically expected guessing games to try to preempt the storyline, this was an absolute treat.
Having enjoyed the race to the end and left eager to devour the next book in the series, I purchased the paperback version also to ‘restart’ the most enjoyable read I’ve discovered in a while.
Why you may ask?
It's because I know the author personally and I was concerned that I may not like the book.
But thankfully, those concerns were unnecessary.
For Sean's first ever novel, Fir Lodge volume 1 really is a well written and funny book.
It's Groundhog Day but with a twist.
With believable characters, dialogue, references from comics and movies (two of the characters are named Hal and Kara) and with a cliffhanger of an ending, Fir Lodge really is an enjoyable read.
And I must say, I enjoyed the way Sean introduced the character Jerry!
Sean, I take my hat off to you!
Roll on book 2!
There are A LOT of characters and I didn’t fully get my head around the friend group and who was dating who, but it felt like my own friend group where you can’t remember why you’re all friends, you just know you are.
I’m genuinely sad I’ve finished it, and look forward to the next book immensely!
No honestly. I fully neglected everyone and myself reading this masterpiece.
Where do I even begin?!
What can I even say?
I started Fir Lodge not knowing what I was walking into. Within the first couple of chapters, I was drawn to the banter which rolled off every character, I had the perfect image of Fir Lodge mapped out in my head, I had my favourites branded on my heart...then...it happened. Magic? Science? A big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff?...Yeah, let's go with that.
Without any spoilers, what I can say for certain is that this book positively slayed me. The cultural pop references had me nodding with immense respect. The one-liners were on point. The realism of Hal and Kara was everything to me.
The details were perfect, the pacing and writing style absolutely beautiful, not complex in any way, just simply fun!
There were moments--god, there were moments--where my heart all but failed on me, times where I thought Sean McMahon (that legend) was going to perform a George. R. R. Martin and completely ruin me. The suspense was beautifully executed on several occasions, the well-timed jokes were more than appropriate in dire times and of course, the emotions, the gravity which Sean managed to express so perfectly on every page was genius.
I wholeheartedly want to see this made into a TV series. In fact, I believe this WILL be made into a TV series one day! Make it a Netflix original! It has all the elements and potential to be one hell of a captivating, addictive series for anyone to obsess over.
A message for the author: You, Sean McMahon, are the champion of awesomeness. The Ultimate Restarter. I absolutely cannot wait for book 2. Please now! Thank you!
It's happened. I've become a Restarter now. There's no going back....or is there?
This isn’t my usual genre, but the story intrigued me so I wanted to check it out. And boy, did it not disappoint. From the amusing pop culture references to the mystery surrounding the restarters. It was enthralling. I was captivated by their dilemmas and the real human emotion Sean managed to inject into the story. This author is one to watch out for. He’s going to do big things. I just know it.
I'm so looking forward to book 2.
