A 6'5" starship captain flees a lost war and lands on Earth in 1600s feudal Japan. Imagine the possibilities!

· In Earth's far distant past an epic battle took place in space thousands of light years away. Facing only annihilation Captain Kendrick turned his interstellar fighter craft to the farthest reaches of the galaxy until he reached a blue marble of a planet and landed on a large island in its northern hemisphere. Earth. 1600s feudal Japan. A 6'5" warrior from an advanced culture in a land populated by 5'8" war-like people.

· Imagine the possibilities!

· He befriends the local Shukido, a Bushido Warrior-Protector, brings innovation to the local  ship builder Honashi, master of the village, falls for his beautiful independent daughter Doiyoko, saves and is adopted by a tiger. He helps them to thwart an attack by a neighboring warlord. They in turn help him to defend against his enemies when a patrolling spacecraft discovers his presence, sometimes by using kinetic energy weapons (rocks).

· When challenged by Honashi to a race using his sleek new sailing sloop vs Honashi's own through the dangerous Doro-bai, the treacherous shoreline passage wrecks the ship. He and Doiyoko are forced to overcome their injuries, climb a steep cliff, and strike out overland where they encounter and battle bandits. In the process they save an endearing young woman who charms the elder Honashi when he finally finds and rescues them. But she's not what she seems.

 

Kendrick - a starship captain and well-trained warrior loyal to his people and his cause, but the war is lost. He is forced to flee across the galaxy.

Gogenko - a pedantic shukido (area protector) trained in the tradition of Bushido, the Way of the Warrrior.

Kenshi - Gogenko’s cousin, fellow martial arts student, and shukido to Honashi Village.

Doiyoko - the beautiful if untraditional oldest daughter of the Honashi Village leader.

 

Reviews:

***** Great fun! This book is just a lot of fun! With flavors of Samurai and Steam-punk adding spice, it rocks along from delight to surprise, and all along it is highly satisfying. Oh, on first reading, towards the end I thought maybe it bogged down. But it is the sort of book you want to re-read as soon as you finish it, because it was just so much fun. And I found out I was wrong: the story continues apace, right to the last page. And the ending is a pure delight. Don't peek, you won't get it. But I can assure you: it will give you huge satisfaction, and you will be glad you chose to read this book. ·· William Fletcher

**** ...Overall, this is an entertaining book on many levels. Those who enjoy reading about real-life and science fiction technology will enjoy the technical parts. Those who like laser fights and battles between uneven forces where the underdog must overcome long odds will enjoy the battles. Those who like strong women who overcome social barriers and can hold their own will enjoy Doiyoko, Kendrick's love interest. Those who enjoy a little mystical and technological awesomeness in their main character will love Kendrick. And, finally, those who enjoy humorous situations and camaraderie will find more than a sufficient dose in this book to satisfy their funny bones. ·· Patricia Hamill on Goodreads

***** Exciting - this is the most appropriate word to describe Exile. Author R.L. Kiser put a bit of everything in the story. Apart from the prime sci-fi adventure theme, there is romance between Kendrick and Doiyoko, the beautiful but unconventional eldest daughter of the Honashi Village leader. There is also a fairly healthy dose of humor packed into this story. I do appreciate the way it is written in two parts: Kendrick's first arrival and his developing relationship with his new friends in part one; how he copes with his new life years later in part two. I think this approach maintains the good pacing of the story. Simply put, Exile is a stellar work from Kiser, with appealing characters and an absorbing tale. ·· Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite

Reviews:

***** Whoa, slow down there, Turbo! A sexy babe with muscles, training, and ability. A guy with a laser sword, a giant, ancient warriors. This has it all. You did it again, dude. What a great story. ·· J.D. King

***** Strong start. OMG, love the cover! The description in the book of the girl and her outfit (and why it's so scanty) is believable and impressive. If I hadn't seen the cover pic, I think I would have pictured the same girl. ·· Anymous (Goodreads)

***** ...Overall, I really liked this book, though I can only make it through one or two battle scenes in a single sitting (probably why it took me a while to read the story). The characters are charismatic and their banter is humorous. I enjoyed the magical elements and the hints at a greater history. ·· Patricia Hamill on Goodreads

The fight scenes are well-described with great details – this is definitely R.L. Kiser’s strength. No reader would complain that he or she couldn't imagine the scenes vividly. Nonetheless, there are times when things are a little too convenient in the plot department. Character development is solid, although not the strongest compared to some of Kiser’s books that I've read before. Yet it’s all justifiable as it’s such a wild adventure. Overall, it is a book that would satisfy fantasy and adventure fans alike – it’s action-packed and a fast read. That said, The Prophecy of Tara is strictly for mature adults due to some parts of the story that are not suited for younger readers. ··Lit Amri for Readers’ Favorite

**** Very Entertaining... I find this book to be very entertaining and full of action. It is also different! I enjoyed the Western style composure of this book and there is no dull moment. It keeps you in suspense! I plan to recommend it to my friends because I enjoyed it. ·· Tamarah

***** A good read with characters you like. I'd recommend it. ·· W.R. Masters

****  I most enjoyed the fast paced, action driven storyline and the tongue-in-cheek banter between Merle and Hawk (and between Hawk and the judge that put him through college). Besides that, I got a kick out of Merle's nemesis, a certain shoulder cannon with, well, a kick.  In summary, Educated Injun is action-packed, funny, clever, and entertaining. ·· Patricia Hamill on Goodreads

Reviews:

***** This is a good read. It takes up where both the first and second books left off - yeah, both of them. I like the time-walking, the mystical shadow warriors, and Lady Mist and sergeants rule the army! There's good comic relief with the comical snake Ith . ·· JD King

***** The changing landscape of the story and of the desert, war, magic, and a touch of sensuality, I was all in. ·· W.R. Masters

***** ...What I most enjoy about this story is the ability of the author to draw one into the minds of his characters, even those who happen to be on the "wrong" side of the battle. Additionally, the banter is natural and entertaining, the characters are complex and dynamic, and the battles are epic and exciting. On that note, few authors are able to narrate a battle with such skill that they can keep me from skimming through them, but R.L. Kiser is one of them. · · Patricia Hamill on Goodreads

 **** R.L. Kiser has created a really epic trilogy with the Tales of the Crystal series and I have loved each one more than the other. The Twelve Tablets is fast paced and it really forces your brain to try to keep up with all of the action, while at the same time keeping you engaged in the characters. For me, this book is very character driven and I like that fact. Each character is well fleshed out and you can picture them in your mind and understand why they choose to do the actions they do. Lovers of fantasy are really going to enjoy this last installment of the series because it hits all the key points you like to see in well written fantasy work. I am glad that I started reading this series and would highly recommend it. ·· Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite

Reviews:

***** I don't know which I liked better, Educated Injun or Chicago Chase. I'm glad I read them both. ·· W.R. Masters

**** I loved the detail and the interplay between the characters. The author also did a fine job of describing the chase through the town and the handcar process. The imagery was specific enough for me to picture everything in my mind, but not so much so that it bogged down the action.  Overall, I enjoyed this story and would recommend it to folks who love a good western, a good chase or mischievous characters with a lot of personality (gotta' love how Hawk always manages to snag one or more of the Judge's cigars). ·· Patricia Hamill on Goodreads

***** Old West that does NOT get boring! Wild west? More like FUN west! lol This was my first western type of book. I found this really fun to read because it was not a simple basic story. It wasn't written using basic outlines. None of that dictated dialogue and prefab character development, just a really cool web of a story to wrap my head around. I LOVE a story that makes me think. ·· Jennifer Elizabeth Hyndman @ Amazon

An epic tale of magic and warriors, of flawed human beings overcoming adversity and personal demons to do what must be done.

· Eons ago magic users were unguided and undisciplined. There were those that applied magic intelligently, those that were unscrupulous, and worst of all, the amateurs. Magic ran rampant in the land. Those pure of heart came together to form a standard of discipline, they formed The Crystal into which the hearts, minds, and souls of hundreds, eventually thousands, gave their special talents.

· Those powerful from the beginning, corrupted by the black arts, coveted the power of The Crystal and would try again to posses it, their previous attempt thwarted. But that battle used powers beyond control and the effects were devastating. Crystal Warriors, scarred by that battle, were scattered throughout the land.

· But now the call goes out for their return, The Crystal is under attack, the need is urgent. Principal among those Crystal Warriors are Tarina, known as Awiel of the Dance, a beautiful veil dancer, Crystal Seeress, and wicked with a blade, far away in the southern lands.

· Rowan, former Captain, psychically scarred, hiding far away in a place where there is little magic, disguised as an old man selling firewood.

· Macon, a drunken sot who must pull himself together to become the powerful Crystal Warrior he once was.

· Naomi, Tarina's fierce warrior woman companion, speechless by choice until she finds the man who killed the Crystal Seeress mistress she was sworn to protect and brutalized her.

· They and many others are forever attuned to The Crystal and hear its call. They must heed the call and travel thousands of perilous miles to do battle with overwhelming forces. An epic tale of magic and warriors, but more importantly, of flawed human beings overcoming adversity and personal demons to do what must be done.


This epic fantasy will leave you wanting more. Don't miss it!

***** I love these characters! What makes this a fun read is the slightly flawed good guys, the babes with beauty, brains and brawn, and the magical characters Thisrena and Ith, the thnake that thpeaks with a lithp. Recommended reading. ·· J.D. King
**** This is a good story, full of magic and some very surprising characters and twists... Charming and mysterious characters, magical creatures, and not-so-perfect foes make this a fun read. ·· Patricia Hamill on Goodreads
**** I was intrigued with the story from the very beginning… R.L. Kiser has written chapter one so deftly to reel in readers’ curiosity to keep reading. Characterization is superb; both heroes and villains have flaws which also lead to humorous moments… the way the plot is developed is fresh, coupled with unpredictable and interesting twists. Kiser’s flawless writing style helps keep the plot tight throughout the story as well as maintain a good pacing. On the whole, a satisfying read and a great start for a series. ·· Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite
