There is nothing not to love about this book. Tired of cookie cutter books written mostly by AI and edited by grammarly? Those are a dime a dozen. If you want to be swept away to another world, two other worlds, the likes of which are NOT the same tired tripe you've read again and again, Terraform Charlie is a must read.
Yes, Earth is in trouble again but the approach to it is unique in that the plan being implemented is the type of plan passed on to the next generation.
You'd think they'd have thought of everything, but Terraforming a new world has all kinds of potential problems.
Forget about the way you expect it to go, forget about the way similar plot lines have gone with it. In Terraform Charlie you're going to be blown away by every twist and turn. From new lifeforms to power struggles between everyone involved who wants control, to ancient messages from the future, you'll have to read it understand that, this book is one of the best I've read in the last 20 years. And thats no small amount of books.
I wish I could give it 10 stars.

He's also done his research, and I don't just mean a quick Google search. It's clear when you read it, Edge put in serious time studying Terraforming, among other things.

A thrilling journey of escape, destiny, and redemption.

Pratibha Malav

"Odin's Tillit" by Edge O. Erin takes readers on a thrilling journey of escape, destiny, and redemption. Set against the backdrop of British Columbia's Arrow Lakes, this captivating novel explores the lives of two young protagonists, Fox and Ren, as they navigate the treacherous waters of their circumstances and confront the forces that seek to control them.

At the age of twelve, Fox fakes his own death to break free from his father, Dagr, and his father's beloved tugboat, Odin's Tillit. Adopting a new identity concealed within a tobacco can, he becomes entangled in the dangerous world of drug smuggling as a pawn of Sheriff J. J. Raskin. Meanwhile, sixteen-year-old Ren finds herself at the helm of Odin's Tillit, assisting the sheriff in his dubious activities, all while yearning for a better life.

Edge O. Erin's storytelling prowess shines through as the characters grapple with the weight of obligation and destiny. Fox and Ren's struggles are vividly portrayed, capturing the reader's empathy and investment in their journey. The author expertly weaves a web of suspense and intrigue, drawing readers deeper into the narrative as the protagonists face mounting danger.

The enigmatic tugboat, Odin's Tillit, serves as a powerful symbol throughout the story. It becomes not only a vessel for physical transportation but also a metaphorical representation of the characters' intertwined destinies. Erin skillfully explores the theme of fate and its impact on Fox, Ren, and those around them. The mysterious and sometimes incorporeal forces at play add an additional layer of complexity to the plot, keeping readers on edge and eager to unravel the mysteries within.

Intriguing title

Alan on Kobo

An excellent yarn, mostly situated in the wilds of Canada with a bit of the Mexican and US dessert thrown in for extra spice. The characters are believable, lovable, hate-able but not forgettable. This book brings with it's characters a mélange of good deeds, disgusting acts, mythology, dark superstition and the paranormal and blends all into a very good read. Should be adapted to the big screen, pay attention Chis Nolan or perhaps Steven Spielberg


Expansive, educational, exciting, and eye-opening and that's just the E's!

Kenneth M. Gray

This is a dense story that can be read just as a good old-fashioned sci-fi adventure touching on forgotten knowledge and spirituality but is filled with an amazing amount of scientific facts as well as speculation. The author is very well-informed and must have researched terraforming extensively. I had great fun reading this book with many side trips to educate myself on the author's many brilliant ideas about where the human race might be heading. Edge O. Erin is a Sci-Fi writer to be reckoned with. Terraform Charlie has an unforeseen and totally satisfying conclusion. A great big fun read that left me with much to mull over!

Review of Odin's Tillit

Excellent Read!

Stephanie Dargon Luce
I don't know what genre Odin's Tillit falls under and I don't care. It's a fast moving, hard hitting piece that has elements of Norse mythology, drug running, murder, supernatural possession, horror and even a bit of humor...toot toot! One must pay close attention to the plot and time twists, but I would still recommend Odin's Tillit in a heartbeat.

PS: As I read Odin's Tillit, I couldn't help but wonder why it hasn't been adopted for the big screen.

Review of Odin's Tillit

"A Captivating Read!"

Anastasia G
Where shall I start with this captivating read? There's the tugboat that's possessed by a deranged former owner, a drug lord in need of others to help keep his 'business' and other side hustle alive, a man trying to start over after a brush with the law, and a girl just trying to live a simple life on a tugboat. There is enough action in this book to tucker out Bruce Willis, Steven Segal, and Jean-Claud Van Damme on a movie set! By the way, this would make for an excellent movie and could quite easily replace the age-old tradition of watching one of the many Die-Hard movies on Christmas. "Merry Christmas, break out Odin's Tillit and the egg nog!"
Odin's Tillit will grab your attention from the first page, not letting you go until the last word. The kind of novel that you don't even put down to walk to the kitchen for a snack, you'll bump into walls without a care as long as you don't have to put this book down for a second. From the beginning you're met with the perfect cocktail of suspense, action, great dialog, and in true Edge O. Erin fashion, lots of wit and humor thrown in the mix of things. There is not a single character, as twisted as some of them are, that isn't relatable, whether we'd like to admit that about ourselves or not. As much of a fan I am of his work, if you choose to read just one of EOE's novels, THIS is the one that you'd need to reach for...your brain will thank you afterwards.

Review of Time Sneak: Emergence by author

Mary Schmidt

Mary is an author and creative from Colorado/Kansas
"Epic story!"
Where to start? The beginning, I guess. I've never read any book with anything similar to this novel. We start off with a woman, Emily, who was able to see as a true Tetrachromat person with four cone types in her retina, rather than the standard three that most people have, and a brain injury that robbed her of her sight, rendering her color blind. There is so much going on in this novel, and one could reasonably wonder if anyone would survive. But I digress. Combine vision issues with technology, and you get a "anything is possible" scenario. And it was! The author touches on chimera - not in true chimera - such as one born with both male and female DNA and internal and external reproductive organs intact. But I digress. The author brings into the story chimera as a part human and part non human self mixed, then ending up as different entities all together. Add in just a touch of serial killings, evil personas, who to trust issues, and some ethnicity understandings, and you get one explosive book.

Terraform Charlie review from creative juggernaut

Hanna Maxwell

Hanna is a "Writer, Drifter, Reader, Blogger, Contract Polymath, Mediator of the Gods, and Builder of Communities."

Terraform Charlie is an epic book. This book is the reason a word like ‘epic’ must exist. Not only are the characters engaging, from the things that make them different to the things that make them the same, they are also surprising in their weaknesses as well as their strengths. There are so many things touched on in this book that it really massages the active brain. It’s also abundantly clear that it is very well researched, yet it never reads like a research paper. The book spans time and space and helps you look at the world in a different way.
With Earth in trouble, creative solutions are in order. For once this trope is done competently, thanks to the writing style of Edge O. Erin, an author to be on the lookout for. The realistic approach to terra-forming, among things, like evolution itself, will be appreciated by people who want more than, fire a missile at it and within hours you’ll have a brand new, livable planet.
This is why the book must span through time, it’s about legacy. It isn’t the story of one person and their struggles, it is the story of all people on a cycle of beginning, ending and beginning again. The characters are affected by the decisions of those who came before and are tied into the story and one another in a way that demonstrably shows just how connected we all are. In this epic work, that theme of connection shows that legacy can stand the test of time and even of space. That may sound like a lot to deliver and Edge O. Erin does it masterfully. I cannot recommend this book enough.

TERRAFORM CHARLIE review from author

Tammy L. Nieuwoudt

Tammy is writing a 5-book medieval fantasy series!

'The sheer amount of knowledge and intellect in this book makes my jaw drop with admiration. And it's all woven into such a compelling story that spans '52,218 years, 5 days, 57 minutes and 16 seconds', which moves at a striding pace. A tale so grand in scope it begins with the MC (not the only MC btw) and then runs with his legacy, sprouting many interesting characters. It begins with a realistic and believable Earth of the future falling to its demise, and then it transports you to an entirely believable Nova Terra 'New Earth' where Earth's civilisation have the chance to carve out a new existence for themselves... and then... another colonisation attempt happens years into the future...and then... well... you can imagine... what do they find on the planet... all those years later...? ... It'll raise your eyebrows I tell ya! It's exciting! There's no aliens if you want aliens, but there's 'humanity transformed' for the better and the worse. It's a story that quenches ones thirst for exploration, new beginnings and discovery, resonates I think, with doom and apocalyptical themes, but also shows humanity's brilliant capacity to survive and progress. It's unsettling in a few ways, you hold your breath right from the first chapter and don't truly ever let it out. It continuously builds your expectations and never lets you down which, I think, is doubly good for a book of it's length. Narration is pleasingly swift, and some of it is highly quotable. World-building is marvellously done - and not over done, btw. Characters are deftly crafted and, though many, each are unique and you find yourself wanting to follow each and every one of them. A long read, but well well WELL worth it. Applause applause to EdgeOErin, you are a master-storyteller. I am in awe!' - Tammy L. Nieuwoudt, writer

Legacy of Seconds review from author

Asiel R. Lavie

Asiel R. Lavie (

"When I sat down to read Legacy of Seconds, I found myself flying through the pages. The author’s voice is captivating, made me want to read more and more. The world-building was interested and well-thought-out. Clearly, Edge made a lot of research before writing the book, which made it sound realistic. I found it very interesting to read about women leading and in power while men are second-class citizens!"

Time Sneak: Emergence 

"Intelligent Science Fiction Thriller"

M. C. Knight
"Time Sneak: Emergence" is an intelligent (and funny!) science fiction thriller. With a witty, dry humor and an impressive collection of technical terms, it was engaging and had me giggling at more than a few points. Edge O. Erin is obviously well-educated and -traveled, and has done his research; I learned several new words in the course of my reading (for example: tetrachromat).
Other than a few misplaced (or missing) commas and a run-on sentence or two, the editing is fairly solid. Certain passages can seem a bit abrupt, but that can be a plus if you're not into flowery, descriptive language--there's no skipping paragraphs or pages to get to the action. And boy, I tell you, these characters are hilarious! Emily and Holton's conversations are riddled with jokes and puns (good and bad) and there are some one-liners that are real gems; my favorite has to be, "The mind can only absorb what the ass can endure."
On that note, this is definitely not a children's book. It's not excessively gory or explicit, but there is some cursing and several scenes where characters are drinking. I'd probably rate it a PG-13/R (according to American movie ratings): not suitable for children, but fine for adults/teenagers. (A precocious child might read it, but probably wouldn't understand a lot of it even if they knew the more obscure terms.)
All in all, an engaging read. It's not a genre I often dabble in, but the story is cool and the writing intelligent. I recommend either you buy the e-book or have a dictionary/the internet handy, so you can look words up as you come across them. The grammar/punctuation errors are negligible and do not detract from the overall readability. 4/5 Stars from a light-hearted fantasy lover ;)
Review of Time Sneak: Emergence on Goodreads

"Another Masterpiece"

Joseph Clark
Edge O. Erin does not disappoint with yet another masterpiece, I am thoroughly enjoying this second novel by my new online friend, it is enticing, exciting, suspenseful, and beautifully written, I can't wait to find out what is behind cure-a-care, and what ultimately happens to Emily the fun loving Achromat, because of my disability I struggle to engage with hobbies and interests, Edge's novels have re-kindled my passion for reading, as I used to be an avid reader in my youth, he really has knocked another engaging, emotive, highly stimulating novel out there for readers ! Another great sf character/plot novel with great descriptive talent!
Amazon Customer Review of Time Sneak: Emergence

"Exciting International Thriller"

Kindle Customer
This book is an intense look at how we see color (or don't) and pharmaceutical research run amuck. Lots of action and twists and turns. It mixes science with fantasy and mystical beings. Sometimes it gets a bit complicated, you may need to re-read certain parts. It's an exceptional book and a fast read that taught me a lot.
October 2020, Terraform Charlie testimonial:

"Beautifully Crafted"

Anastasia Gauthreaux
Terraform Charlie is not your typical science fiction novel; Edge O Erin has beautifully crafted it in a manner that almost all genre lovers will find intriguing. From environmental issues, to action packed battles, to a little slice of romance, O Erin seems to cover all of the bases for a wide array of readers.
The characters and issues at hand give an insightful glimpse as to what civilizations could actually be facing in our future. There are no hover boards, no crazy alien-like people, and no one blasting others with light sabers, just real people trying to recreate a planet for future generations.
I can not say that I’m officially a science fiction fan but I can say with conviction that I’m definitely an Edge O Erin fan.

"A Puzzle to Spend Time with..."

Nix Winter
Emily and Holton are very likable characters with a strong friendship. The technology is interesting and leaves a person thoughtful. This is the kind of book to have a lovely afternoon, a hot coco, and an interesting new world.

Legacy of Seconds:

"A well crafted sci-fi novel that's definitely going to need a second read."

Book Reviewer
Nathan Jones
The author's ability to transfer information is admirable; the writing is often dense and contains a host of complex, relatable characters, but the skilled writing never leaves you behind. It's both challenging and rewarding, which I always love in a book.
Kento Suzuki
His work, or rather, the "journey" through time that he offered me, was intensely stimulating.
It was a very intense and long journey, and when I finished reading it, I felt like I was on a short trip and I would miss him.
I felt like a "snake. When I finished the endless journey on the back of this character, my brain shed its skin. A world of new possibilities opened up before me. And the essence of "time.“
You will be so absorbed in the story that you will lose track of time, and after the journey is over, you will want to rewind time. It's that simple. Just become a snake again and travel. Again and again.
Legacy of Seconds is
