Sentinels: The Shiva Advent has some of my favorite things: Big robots and guys with big weapons. Those are what I want to read about. If more books had them, society would right itself.”
--Joe Crowe, RevolutionSF.com (8/10 starred review)

Each novel reads as a complete adventure, while  also forming part of a three-volume story arc (or trilogy) telling a larger tale. The entire series taken together forms one grand adventure focusing on the themes of identity, memory, and loyalty as the heroes face unimaginable dangers and challenges.

"There's more than enough adventure and superheroics to keep even the casual superhero fan interested, and true fanboys (and girls) will likely foam with glee."
--Hydrargentium, A Thousand Faces magazine
