"Orison is a wonderfully written fantasy novel that interweaves the perspective of three great characters: a thief named Story, a banished wizard named Wrynn, and a guard of the queen named Ashen. Each of these characters struggles to navigate the dangers of a city fraught with conspiracies of powerful people who have no qualms about using Story, Wrynn, and Ashen as disposable pawns. Orison is an engaging novel with complex characters that leave me hoping that Swensen will be writing more."
"I've been waiting for a fantasy book like this since I finished Jim Butcher's 'Codex Alera.'"
"Daniel Swensen creates a world and a city that is vivid and a cast of characters that are easy to like and understand. I stood with Story, the protagonist, on the roof tops of Calushain and we watched the mischief below as if it had been painted by Picasso."
"This book is exactly what I love about writing. I love how Swensen just gets into the world seamlessly, where I just felt it was normal. Story, the MC, is a girl that I can see pieces of myself in and is truly someone I want to root for. I loved the pace of the story and the overall development of the different story lines. Once I got past the first chapter, I was hooked and finished the book in a few days."
Please spread the word if you're so inclined! Thanks!
This includes my near-future sci-fi superhero-ish conspiracy thriller THE MINUS FACTION, which concludes with Episode Six, coming this summer:
"A unique brand of justice, morality, and heroism."
"Gripping, immersive, entertaining."
An enigmatic mastermind assembles four people with exceptional talents and offers them everything they want in exchange for the impossible—but with the promise that not all of them will survive.
THE MINUS FACTION is a cliffhanging near-future serial about extraordinary abilities and how not to use them. Each of the six novella-length episodes tells a complete story while unraveling the relentless global conspiracy threatening to hack the human race!

I've ordered a new one. A Google Pixel. I can't really afford it, but I ordered it anyway. Am going to have to figure out how to sell some books, huh?
Which is also about one-half step down from loosing your sandcat, or shoulder salamander... or shadowdragon... or whatever companion is suitably social for your preferred biome...
...because I have directly suffered all these feels:- I am going to refrain from crying long enough to validate your pains in a public display of redonkulous parody of serious philosophical musings, comrade.
