Author Biography

Mike Saxton grew up in Vernon, CT. He attended Eastern Connecticut State University starting in 1996. He became a Resident Assistant starting his Sophomore year. The following year, he met and started dating Amy, and the two would be married after graduation. Mike earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Eastern and following graduation, he was hired full time as a Residence Hall Director and subsequently earned his Master of Science degree in Organizational Management. His son, Christopher was born two weeks after completing his comprehensive exams for his Master’s degree. After having spent most of his life in New England, he recently moved to Florida with his wife, son, and two cats Padme and Obi-Wan.

Mike was inspired by four years of lucid dreaming that began the summer prior to his Junior year of High School and concluded during the summer after his Sophomore year of college. After spending eleven years compiling the dreams and making sense of them, he gained the sudden inspiration to finally start writing them into what is now the 7 Scorpions Trilogy.

Mike has spent 12 years employed in Higher Education, has taught college courses, and is pursuing his PhD in Organization and Management.

Reviewed by Paul Johnson for Readers' Favorite

The immoral Zodiac set off a fire storm throughout the world, setting off bombs that leveled cities and killing millions. After a rather large setback, he is now even more determined to unleash his final solution upon the shattered remnants of humanity. With his mostly lobotomized minions, the Grand Army, he will stop at nothing to accomplish his objective of world domination. The only thing that stands in Zodiac's way are the rebels of Militia 28 led by Night Viper, a man highly trained with heightened strength, speed, fighting skills, and mental powers that make him a very worthy opponent for Zodiac. But, Militia 28 is very small in comparison to the multitudes of the Grand Army. How can they hope to defeat a seemingly invulnerable foe like Zodiac?

Apocalyptic action adventures come in all shapes and sizes. This is a big book and the reader gets quickly drawn into the story. From the opening pages the reader is assailed with action, death and destruction. As with many sequels, the story takes off right where the last one left off. This can be good, and bad. It is good because the action continues, but it can be bad if the characters are not quickly and fully reintroduced. I feel the author could have spent a little more time reintroducing the players. Also, a few paragraphs, possibly in a flashback format, would provide the reader, one that possibly hadn’t read the first installment, with a little more understanding of the current situation. This in no way takes away from the quality of the story. Overall, "7 Scorpions: Revolution" is a well-written story that I really enjoyed.
