What Others Are Saying About The Book
The author’s unique and captivating narrative escorts modern readers through fantastical times and places where Minoan characters live and thrive on idyllic islands dotting the Aegean Sea, where volcanoes threaten to bring havoc to tropical isles, and where complicated lives mingle to spawn love stories, power struggles, and dramas of mythic proportions… A compelling hero’s journey set in ancient times—rich with loves, dangers, and classic complications—Wing Builder is also a tome with eerie twenty-first century implications. The narrative points to fundamental questions about human nature, our priorities as a technological species, and our everlasting helplessness when confronting unsympathetic forces of nature, such as those being unleashed by global climate change.
Mr. Case has accomplished all that is required of an engaging novelist: an original and compelling story-line, emotional resonance, convincing characters, and adventurous quests by ingenious innovators, such as those who in mythology left the terrestrial plane for the first time to rise above the fray of human affairs.
