"Hell’s Menagerie: Tek-Fall (Episode II) is the companion novella in the After Eden science fiction and international thriller series by Austin Dragon—a dramatic mix of politics, religion, and intrigue. The sci-fi, adventure started in Episode I with the hunt for the elusive “Man Made Out of String.” But it was only the tip of the iceberg for a broader mission for the Faithers. In Episode II, they seek the “Zoo.” Monsters are being made—for war, for study, for amusement—and some have escaped into the wild. From the tek-cities of America to Spanish Australia to secret island locations all over the world, the sci-fi adventure thriller continues in the year 2093. Tek World loves the advancements of modern genetic-engineering to eliminate disease, genetic-designing to pick the traits of offspring, and body-farms to grow and replace damaged limbs and organs—and even to “perfect” the human body. But it hasn’t stopped there. There is a secret bio-tek race by rogue international alliances to create life—bizarre, amazing, and horrifying." -

I was kindly contacted by Austin Dragon for a read and review on his novella! This book releases on March 30th! Thank you so much!

This story is set up as a novella just after the first two books in the series After Eden: Tek-Fall, but can be read as a stand alone. I was a bit confused in the beginning because I had not read the first two books, but that quickly went away as I got further into the story. This book is full of futurist technology, cities, and robots. The characters in this book think of themselves as gods, creating robots to resemble past people such as Hitler. These 'monsters and creatures' are being made for the war. This book follows people of many backgrounds in religion, ethnicity, as well as the politics leading up to the third world war. 

It was a quick read, an interesting read and very detailed. Austin did an amazing job developing his characters as well as the world that surrounds them. I'm super happy I got a chance to read this book, I'm looking forward to picking up the first two books in the series as well as any books after this one. 

Austin also has another promising book releasing on the same date as this one called Hollow Blood which is the first one in a new series. This is another one I would love to dive into!

Thank you again, Austin Dragon for offering me the chance reading your books, I enjoyed getting a glimpse into this amazing world you created!
