If you follow me regularly, then you probably have read my review of a book that I loved so very much, Clifton Chase and the Arrow of Light by Jaimie Engle. My love of this book, peaked my desire to check out the other books by Jaimie Engle.
The latest book that we have read from Jaimie Engle is called The Dredge.
Sean Marrok, a young miner who is known only by an assigned number, lives in the Dredge under the controlling thumb of the Regime. After his shift in the mine, he goes to a local club to let off steam and drink a few Stingers. He decides to place a two-million to one bet and the dice lands its mark on the winning number. But at what cost? His big win attracts the attention of the casino owner, Ambrosia. Instead of turning Marrok over to the authorities, Ambrosia releases him to the charming Chantelle who escorts him to the back exit and away from Regime soldiers. But Marrok is framed for destroying Regime property and finds himself on a commuter ship to the prison on Roan. Instead of landing on Roan, the ship is ambushed and crash landed at the secret base of the Network, where he once again runs into the exotic woman, Ambrosia. She believes he is destined to be the Savior of the people, the one to overthrow the Regime. Will Marrok see what’s to come? Or will his third eye be blinded by his own decisions? A dark science-fiction novella weaving magic with manipulation that shows what happens when the oppressed have had enough and rise up to fight.
The Dredge is an 88 page paperback that I thought was great.
Jaimie Engle truly captured my imagination with her writing. I love a book that draws you in to such an extent that you can see, hear, and feel the character’s world. Marrok goes through so many emotions and you are right there with him. The author keeps you on a roller coaster ride of emotions and suspense.
Jaimie M. Engle is totally deserving of the honorable mentions in L. Ron Hubbard’s Writer’s of the Future contest. I look forward to reading more of her work and to be honest I am hoping for possibly more on what comes next for Marrok and his third eye.
The Dredge is s sci-fi book that I bet both sci-fi and non sci-fi fans will enjoy.
I really love the stories that Jaimie Engle creates. She doesn’t just create a story, she creates a world, emotions, and characters that the reader gets drawn into caring about as well as needing, and wanting to know what happens next.
If you have a love for books and great writing, I recommend that you check out the line of books by Jaimie M Engle. You can find out more about the author and her books here…
