    i couldn’t decide on a favorite all excellent and couldn’t wait for the next book to come out

  2. Pamela Blackwell says:

    Love the books

  3. Morag Birkett says:

    Love the aliomenti saga, can’t wait for the last book..thankx for giving me a fantastic read.

  4. Maia Bradford says:

    As a new reader to your Aliomenti series, and a part-time writer trying to go full time, I’m enamoured of your writing. Thank you for the past hours of getting to know your characters, your writings, and you.

  5. Tim Waggoner says:

    I enjoyed a Question Of Will and look forward to the rest of the series.

  6. Donna L. Jacobs says:

    I am an avid reader. This series had me hooked from book no. 1.
    I hope Albrink writes so much more. Note: This would be so awesome as a TV series?…..

  7. Keith says:

    I don’t understand why these series aren’t at the top of the lists. They are excellent reads.
    I’m now a big fan.

  8. Pablo says:

    I’ve just finished reading the Book one of the Aliomenti saga. To say that I loved it doesn’t help anyone. Let’s try this instead: The pace is fast; the plots and sub-plots are reasonable and logically valid; combine the previous with a fresh and light prose and you get an excellent best-seller type of fiction.

    I would recommend it without any reservations to any Sci-Fi fan that wants something to enjoy as a light reading.

    It’s a difficult to put down book!

    Thank you for the effort that you put into your creation.

    • Linda says:

      I couldn’t have put it better. I agree, a thoroughly enjoyable read. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

  9. Elaine Fisher says:

    I just read A Question of Will and I literally couldn’t t put it down. I started in the late afternoon, read through supper, skipped my shower, and brought the book to bed with me and read until 3:00AM. I am 63 years old and it has been quite some time since I have read a book straight through like that. I loved it and can’t wait to read the next one in the series.

  10. Mary says:

    I’m on book six of the series. I must say it has been wonderful reading these books. Fast paced, well plotted, imagniative sci-fi. I would recomend to anyone.

  11. Mary J Berry says:

    Loved the series, read it in about a week, cant wait to read all of the stories you didn’t tell….

  12. Charlene says:

    First I would like to give you five stars on the Aliomenti Saga Book 1. As a prelude to the saga it’s an exciting and full story that prepares me to leap into the past-future. I want to especially express my appreciation for finishing the saga.

  13. Nigel Davies says:

    I just started on the Aliomenti saga a couple of weeks ago. The Kindle version of the first book, “A Question of Will”, was a free offer on Amazon. I completed it in about 3 or 4 days and immediately downloaded the next book “Preserving Hope”.
    Again, I found this a real page-turner, unputdownable. I’d pick it up at bed-time intending to read a chapter to unwind before going to sleep and would still be there about 5 chapters later in the small hours of the morning.
    Its a new and refreshing storyline. I really liked the way it all kicked off in the first book – until about 3/4 the way through you’re wondering what’s going on, then it all starts to make sense towards the end.
    The concept of an elite sect of people – kind of a cross between Highlander and Jedi – makes for a great concept.
    At the end of book 1 we’re set up for a long plot/story line thats going to run through centuries.
    I’m halfway through book 3 now and still enjoying it.
    I just hope it doesn’t settle into “placeholding” in the middle of the series, padding towards the inevitable end (I have read a few 10 or more book series where you could skip the middle 3 or 4 books and not really miss anything).
    Also, I hope it doesn’t stop when we get back to where it all started. For now (into the 3rd book) we’re learning about the past of the main plot characters. I’d like to learn what happens afterwards, in their futures too.
    For now, I’m really enjoying these books. If the rest are like the first 3 then I’ll certainly be looking out for more stories by the same author.

    • James Fieser says:

      YEAH! (What he said.) Only I just finished No.1 (in two sittings) and am waiting for No. 2 & 3 to download. Really looking forward to this adventure.

      • James Fieser says:

        Alrightie then! Finished #2 last night in 3 sittings (got interrupted by life once or twice), and I am even more anxious for the next installment. I’ve been a SciFi wonk for 62 years now and you, ALEX, have hooked me good. This journey up through the gradual growth of civilization is the most promising anticipation I’ve experienced in many, many years.

  14. Debi Richardson says:

    Love your writing, however; since you live in Ohio- are you a Buckeye Fan? (This could be a deal breaker!) Looking forward to every next book you write

    • Alex Albrinck says:

      Depends on what you mean by fan. πŸ™‚ I do not own any scarlet and grey jerseys, nor do I use the phrase “The Team Up North,” but I admit that I was pretty happy with the result of the first College Football Playoff.

      Are we still friends????

  15. Debbie Clark says:

    Hi Alex. I’ve been a fan of sci-fi/fantasy for years. Your first Alomenti book was thoroughly well written and enjoyable.I look forward to reading more.

  16. Jim Anderson says:

    SPOILER ALERT AHEAD!!!!! Love the books. I just started Preserving Will. I just have one beef. All this grief from Hope for a man she is getting ready to marry in a few years. He is not really dead and what is twenty years or so of waiting to a woman that has been alive for a thousand plus years. You would think that she would be happy that he completed his mission,he was. She knows that he is going to father her children…. Anyway thats how I see it now. Quess I will find out in the next couple of books. Keep up the great work and i look forward to reading some of your other work!

  17. Jim Anderson says:

    Ahhhh. Never mind. I get it!!

  18. Chuck hall says:

    after getting an offer from book but for the first 3 books, I have finished them, purchased books 4 and 5, and just now purchased book 6 (STARK CATACLYSM) for Kindle. I have been reading them on my iPad kindle app and have a hard time putting it down. I am 82 and have been reading Preserving Will (book 5) until 3 am when I finished the book. Very excellent series that keeps you wanting more. Excellent writing Alex.

  19. Drew says:

    Alex nothing personal man . . . I hate you. No I just finished reading A Question of Will. I loved the story the pace was excellent. Tying in Angel and Fil, nice twist. I expected Will to end up getting close with Angel, I didn’t see that coming.

    The problem I have is the ending. I understand it had to end some where, but there really?? I know the story continues for 6 more volumes and as time and money allow I am going to pick up volumes 4, 5, 6, and 7. Like many of the comments say I couldn’t put it down. Not a bad thing considering I’m usually up in the wee hours of the morning any way. Now I have to start on Book 2 Preserving Hope. I have to know what happens next and how the story continues. Please tell me you don’t leave Will on a raft in the middle of a rushing river bound for . . . .

  20. Megan says:


    Dear Mr. Albrinck,
    THANK YOU!! I am an avid reader and truly enjoy immersing myself in full series as I feel I get an extended stay πŸ˜‰ It’s not easy to find multiple books that are all so enjoyable – oftentimes a very lengthy novel can become tedious, but if all the Aliomenti/Alliance books were in one tome, there’s no question I would still be a fan. I started with the first three in a box set and have already bought the rest through to book #7. I do have a question though that is really bothering me. I’m nearing the end of book 4, Birth of the Alliance, and I cannot for the life of me figure out WHEN/HOW Hope received her own copy of the “diary”. I’ve gone back to reread the section where she tells Will that HIS copy fell out of his pants and she saw the picture of herself with her children, along with an explanation of what her mission was for the many years to come. Later there are comments about her version of the diary. But I cannot find a description noting she received HER OWN copy even though there is reference to it later. I can’t imagine I glossed over such an important plot point but my rereading and searching for the answer has been fruitless. I’ve even searched the web to see if anyone else has commented on same. I must have missed it and am embarrassed by that but I couldn’t continue without trying to find out. Rarely do I communicate via message boards, etc. If you could please point me in the right direction to the answer, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance for your time and efforts regarding my inquiry. Thank you also for your fantastic work. Megan

    • Alex Albrinck says:

      Hi Megan!


      The device physically cloned itself upon sensing a specific set of circumstances — date, time, and, critically, Will being asleep. That cloned machine was the “diary” that Hope discovered. Once held by her, the device knew to display information meant for her use (including the picture of her and the children). Since the device is “speaking” to her, she understands it’s meant to be hers and keeps it. Will’s copy is still where he expects to find it when he wakes.

      There’s no reference to this event at the time it happened in the story because we’re learning of the storyline from Will’s perspective. Since he was asleep, he had no idea what happened, finding out when we do as Hope relates the tale many years later.

      Hope that helps!

      • Megan says:

        THANK YOU!!

      • Kevin Miller says:

        Hell yeah i had the same thought myself but thought i must have missed too thanks for clarity Alex sir and as an after note i have enjoyed all your books immensely far to A/S 7 couldn’t stop till i read them all. Now going ro start your ravager saga I hope I enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the Aleomenti saga many thanks for Your vision and imagination.

  21. Bea says:

    Its a great series. I have absolutely no alternative but to buy book 4! Rarely does a book keep me awake reading through the night. Thanks. Its a lot of fun.

  22. Anne Shamas says:

    I could not put the series down and can’t wait for the next books. I do have a question. What will prevent the Energy rebuilding? If I understood correctly it could be generated by living organisms. Could the trees, for instance, rebuild an energy pool?

    Once again thank you for such a wonderful story. Please hurry to publish more!

    • Alex Albrinck says:

      Hi Anna!

      Thanks for the kind words!

      In regard to your question: I’ll just say that there are flaws in the design of the “weapon” that mean that Aliomenti/Alliance skills could in the proper circumstances return on an individual by individual basis. In fact, this is a key subplot in Deviate (yes, it’s almost done, finally) and will feature even more prominently in episode 4 of the Ravagers series.


  23. Warren ST. James says:

    Can’t wait for Deviate!!! Just finished Detonate. Lots of lines and plots I am wanting to see unfold. Great work Alex.

  24. Gary Clark says:

    Hey Alex, just popped in to see how things are going. Seen in your last comment, book #3 going to editor. Can’t wait to read!!!

  25. Louise Reid says:

    Hello Alex, I am reading the first book in your box set purchased from kobo and all I can say is wow!! Just wow.. You definitely have a new fan in me, your imagination and writing skills just boggle the mind…congratulations!!!πŸ˜€

  26. Pat Guticz says:

    I have read all of the available Aliomente saga and eagerly await book 8. Was enthralled by the tale and characters. Will and Hope and all other character became alive in the writings. Each novel fleshed out more and more the characters. It was awesome following all the threads and watching them merge into a powerful saga that I just did not want to stop reading.
    Reading the Ravager series and starting to realize that there were threads back to the Aliomente characters was super nice. I loved the new characters and so enjoyed how you brought all of the threads together to make another great tapestry of a story.
    Roddy, Deirdre, Sheila, Micah, and all of the other characters are beautifully fleshed out. The story lines are easily understood and followed. I am only disappointed in that I now have to wait for you to complete the next novels. Thankyou for sharing your stories.

  27. Gary Clark says:

    Just finished Deviate and WOW! I knew the old world and the new world were tied together, you started the process of bring them to light awesomely. As the characters start to come to light, you start realizing why they are doing what they do. I like how you have given us characters we will love, those that will hate and those we are not sure of just yet. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
    I guess I’ll go back to reading the “In Death” series until your next one! Don’t laugh my wife got me hooked on the series.

  28. Gigi says:

    Loved the Aliomenti Saga, and have greatly enjoyed the Ravagers to date… looking forward to updates and release dates! (Is it possible to preorder through Amazon?)

    Also, is there any chance that Hunting Will will be released on Kindle? I’d love to get an extra dose of awesome to tide me over until books 8 & 4, respectively, but I just don’t buy paperbacks anymore… no sense in killing the trees.

    Keep up the great work, Mr. Albrinck. You are very talented, and I look forward to many more hours of mental vacation with your books!

    • Alex Albrinck says:

      Hi Gigi! Glad to hear you’ve been enjoying both series!

      Pre-orders could be an option but my writing schedule tends to be too erratic to predictably know when the next book will be ready, and most retailers don’t give you an indefinite amount of pre-order time. (I know, I know, write faster and more predictably, right??? πŸ™‚ ) So, for now, no pre-orders. If you’ve signed up for my mailing list or follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ll get alerts when new titles are available.

      In terms of putting the ebook version of Hunting Will back on Kindle… I may do that in the near future.

      Thanks for reading!

  29. Andrew Young says:

    I have been a lover of speculative fiction my entire life, and I’m about to give you a compliment of the highest order. After reading through the Aliomenti Saga, and now the 3 books of the Ravagers, I can honestly say I’ve not enjoyed someone’s writing this much since Robert Heinlein, my favorite author of all time.

  30. Thomas Brannan says:

    Just started reading the first in the series and really enjoying it so far, hope it will continue in this vein.

  31. cj says:

    I love the time travel piece. It’s kind of mind blowing but I look forward to seeing where the journey goes. Thanks for your imagination

  32. David Young says:

    I have just finished the first book in the set. A most enjoyable story with a different angle on an old idea execlent work thank you for this entertaining book

  33. Rosemary Mendez says:

    I just read a Question of Will. I haven’t enjoyed a book that kept me totally engrossed. I can’t wait to read the next book. where do you find the inspiration for your stories they are so believable. They make you think that anything is possible. thanks for your wonderful writing.

  34. Stephanie Raffel says:

    Thank you the free three books in this series. I am looking forward to starting it next week.

  35. Sarah StovallStone says:

    The story was great love

  36. I picked up ? of Will and loved it ! I found an ebook set of Vol 1-3 on sale … Yeah I know that you were offering them for free, but I thought it might put a little coin in your pocket. I am about half way through Preserving Hope and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the stories you have written. Thank you !

  37. Michael Petersen San Antonio,TX. says:

    This is the type of series thaat i will spend time searching for each book and will buy but not read out of sequence even if it means having a book sit on the shelf until i find the previous ones. Really good story line and great charecter developmen. Hard to put down and very easy to pick up.

  38. Allan says:

    Enjoyed the first book immensely. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

  39. Claire Hutt says:

    Great read! I have read books one, and two in the Aliomenti Saga… An avid reader, It has been a long while since I’ve read books that I was not able to put down.

    Thank you for the books, impatiently waiting for Book 3 and will buy the remainder of the series.

  40. Jyo Rao says:

    Wow! I was devastated when I finished reading the last of Asimov’s offerings, the rare ones we cannot find in bookstores! Because there would be no more to come! I loved the way his books are independent and yet tie into one congruous whole!

    Then I got to download ‘A Question of Will’ – great wordplay, btw – on my Kindle for free. I often do that, deleting the book if I find it below par.

    In your case, I finished that – devoured in one gulp, reading until 03:00 in the wee sma’s and immediately started on Book 2, am now through 3 and half-way into 4!

    I am like this greedy child that has found a new type of delicious candy and although she knows there’s only a finite amount available, insists on greedy serial consumption of the treats!

    Can you please write faster?

    Thanks for adding me to your legion of fans, the fervent, hero-worshipping ones!

    • Alex Albrinck says:

      Glad you’re enjoying the series! There are 7 Aliomenti books out at the moment so you should be in good shape for a while. πŸ™‚

  41. Dominick says:

    Hey Alex, I started on A question of Will about a week ago and blew through all 7 books within this past week. At the end of the epilogue I got a bit confused. When you said you weren’t leaving Will and friends behind and you were starting an interconnected series . Were you speaking about the Ravagers series or the 8th book in Aliomenti? I loved the Aliomenti saga and wished you would continue on with it. I would still like to know if will or anyone from the Aliomenti will be mentioned in the Ravagers, indirectly or directly. Thank you for such amazing books, I can’t wait for Adam’s journey.

    • Alex Albrinck says:

      I was likely clumsily referring to both. Will and company don’t feature in the Ravagers, though what they’ve done (and will do!) is referenced regularly if indirectly.

      There’s a lot of time between Convergence/Adam’s Journey and Activate. I have ideas. πŸ™‚

  42. Kashia Ivy says:

    I love love love Will and the Aliomenti saga. I don’t typically read series books online since they’re just one book chopped up, but the description of A Question hooked me. You are a wonderful writer. I commonly find myself looking at typos and plot lines that make no sense and I don’t make it out of the first chapter. I just finished Ascent and I simply find myself wondering how you came up with it all. I know you’ll have me hooked until I o.d. on Will and the rest! Love what you’re doing, congratulations.

  43. Karen says:

    Really liked the first book and am looking forward to the two free books. It is nice to read a book that is interesting and well written. I will continue to purchase from this author.

  44. Alan says:

    Enjoyed the first book immensely. Downloaded the next two and look forward to reading them. Well written, great plot structure and character development. Keeps you guessing, throws you curves and has phenomenal character development. Recommended read!!!

  45. Shirley says:

    Devoured all 7 books in a 2 week period. Loved the story line and the characters – and if rereading the books is the only way to be with them again, then so be it. Liked them too much to lose them.
    Will be looking forward to your next series. Thank you for such an enjoyable read.

  46. mary says:

    Loved your first book and just could not put it down I can’t wait to download the second book

  47. Gwen says:

    Very well written. I enjoyed this story very much and I’m looking forward to the next book.

  48. Mary Conley says:

    I have just started the series. Could not wait till the time I can start reading it again. As time permits and money, I will start on book two and continue on to book seven. This story line is the most fascinating I have ever read. I will see you in the next book.

  49. Phil Valvo says:

    Great book series. I’m currently reading Stark Cataclysm. I had to read the “Aliomenti Saga”, as I started reading the “Ravagers series” first and I’m currently awaiting the publication of “Retaliate”.
    I think I know who Mr. Light really is…
    Just an idea, it would be great if your site had a timeline interconnecting both book series, though access should be only for readers who can answer a few detailed questions so no spoilers are revealed to anyone who hasn’t read either series, thus far.

  50. Phil Valvo says:

    Oh I forgot to add, please keep your books available for the iPhone. Thank you

  51. I am an avid sci fi reader and have been for most of my life. I am 67 and love this series. I read the first book in a day and the proceeded to buy/read the next in the series within a week or two

    I am almost finished reading book six.

    Of all the books so far I feel like I get bogged down in reading this one. It seems a little repetitive and confusing and I find myself going back to a former chapter for clarification.

    However, that said it is one of the best series I have read in a long time. It will be one of my favorites along with the Foundation series br Asimov.

  52. sally goldsmith says:

    Have just read A Question Of Will and have got Preserving Hope which I’m about to start reading, Cant wait to get the rest of the series Money permiting

  53. chrystal newth says:

    Is deviate out yet? I love these books.

    • Alex Albrinck says:

      Yes! It’s out there on all of the major retailers (Amazon, Apple, Kobo, Google, Barnes and Noble).

  54. JERRY FRIEDMAN says:

    most engaging, well written, creative, adventure sci-fi that I have read in years.. Love the characters, the adventure, the writing, can’t say enough just started #6…keep em coming Alex..Thank-you

  55. Sheryl Johnson says:

    I had great plans for the holiday weekend involving yardwork, lots of housework, and some painting. My actual weekend involved buying book 4 of the Aliomenti series and reading it Saturday. Sunday involved buying and reading book 5. Monday was book 6. I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend!! =) I admit I did skip ahead about halfway through book 6 to the end because I had guesses about where Will Stark was and wanted to see if it was answered at the end. Lol. So glad that you didn’t leave that as a cliffhanger and it was revealed. Can’t wait to see how it all ends in book 7. I’m also looking forward to reading more from you. It’s not often that I get so pulled into a series after downloading the 1st one as a free one that I have to go buy all the others. Thank you for the awesome books!!

  56. Madiha says:

    It took me a week to get through books 1-7 of Aliomenti… wow what an experience!can’t wait to hear Adam’s story. Eva and Adam sr. His parents! That was very unexpected but the saddest was Eva being the mole and dying in the end…with no explanation on why she did what she did.. maybe part of book 8?!
    I’ve stopped reading for a few days… still living with Hope, Will and the Alliance.

  57. Kim Banes says:

    I just finished the third Ravengers book. Love them all. Any idea when Retaliate will be available?

  58. John Utterback says:

    Just read #1 in the Aliomenti Saga – really had interesting plot, a lot of things were happening and I just keep reading and reading the book.

    Looking forward to reading books #2 and # in the series.

  59. harry says:

    Hello i would like to know if your books are translated to greek.. thank u

  60. Geoffrey Bennett says:

    Reading “Preserving Hope.” The only fly in the ointment for me is the anachronism of English being spoken in the year 1018. Otherwise it is wonderful. Thanks.
