Convict Fenix, the new work of fiction by debut author Alan Brickett, is a unique read that kept me intrigued throughout. Follow the story of an unusual creature, Dunderland, as he finds himself an inmate in a prison designed for the worst of the worst creatures in the universe, but with no memory of who he is or why he is there. As the book progresses, Dunderland regains bits and pieces of his memory and finds out that the reason for his imprisonment is much darker and more sinister than he could have ever imagined. Escape becomes paramount, and the twists and turns that the plot takes as Dunderland learns more about his past and makes his way through the strange and terrifying prison are enough to make a reader feel as if they are on quite the roller coaster ride.
Author Alan Brickett is a very promising new voice in the genres of fantasy and science fiction, and one that readers interested in these genres should keep an eye on. Convict Fenix is a gripping tale, full of highly interesting characters that many will find completely original; not something easily found in these overcrowded genres anymore. Characters as well as environments are vividly drawn, and readers might just feel as if they have slipped through the pages into the very prison Dunderland inhabits as they are reading. It is easy for me to recommend this book, certainly to fans of fantasy and science fiction, but also to adventurous readers looking for a truly creative piece of fiction to enjoy.
