HERE’S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT APOCALYPSIS: BOOK 1 (KAHAYATLE):
“The storytelling was absolutely first class.” ~Trevor Morris, reviewer
"Elle Casey has done it again. Created a world that drags you in and won't let you go. I think I am a little bit in love with her brain ... at least the imagination part of it. I love books that make me root for the characters, and this one has you rooting from the very first page..." ~ Cynthia Shepp book reviews
"What took me so flipping long to read this book?! Apocalypsis: Kahayatle was so very different than what I expected - but just that much better because of it. Elle Casey creates a world ridden with violence and horror and injects the perfect amount of belly-laughing sarcasm, wit, and romance. Her characterization is phenomenal and honest through a setting that is disturbingly realistic..." BetweentheBind.blogspot.com ~ Jenna, Book Blogger
“I read A TON of dystopians and post-apocalyptic novels. They all run together, but not this one. This is the kind of dystopian that I want to read. I love the world Elle Casey has created. It’s a tamed-down, less-depressing, good-humoured The Road meets a more-aggressive, less sophisticated The Silence of the Lambs. Read this! It’s bloody brilliant.” ~ Lucas Deal, Goodreads Reviewer
“If you don’t enjoy reading books that tend to be addictive and take over your life until you have finished reading it, stay away from Apocalypsis. It was nearly impossible to put down. It is also funny - I spent most of the book chuckling or full out laughing.” ~ Tiffany Loves Books, Blogger and Goodreads reviewer

Praise for Primary Anomaly
The pacing is outstanding, the story is filled with effective action, and the author’s description and world-building is commendable. Post-apocalyptic fiction fans will find this an intriguing start to what could be an excellent series.
Primary Anomaly is a sci-fi blend of military and social commentary wound into the form of a fable that holds messages and meaning not only for mankind which possibly teeters on its last legs, but for readers interested in the price of survival and the ultimate meaning of remaining human in the aftermath of a catastrophically changed society.
—D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
Primary Anomaly serves as a strong introduction to the world of Fables of Nevertime, with interesting world-building, character-driven action, and secrets left to discover.
Primary Anomaly is an exciting story with a great science fiction setting and well-written characters.
