"An entertaining gallop of a story, by a writer both innovative and spellbinding." -- Kristen Iversen, author of "Full Body Burden: Growing Up in the Nuclear Shadow of Rocky Flats."
An entertaining gallop of a story, by a writer both innovative and spellbinding. Kristen Iversen, author of "Full Body Burden: Growing Up in the Nuclear Shadow of Rocky Flats."
Robinson s atmospheric tale of betrayal and revenge paints a passionate picture of the Lost Generation, those who came of age during WWI. . . . He does a fine job of bringing Hemingway s Paris to life. "Publisher's Weekly"
Reviews for "After the Fire"
Literate and moving, ["After the Fire"] is as rich in character as it is in place. . . . Robinson s writing engages you with a kind of terrible beauty. . . . [T]he courage in Robinson s writing will lead him forward. This is a solid debut and clearly there are more to come. "Bloomsbury Review"
A touching debut. . . . [A] poignant story about the pull of the past, affectingly warm and compassionate. "Publishers Weekly"
A powerful, emotional story, one that will instill in readers a renewed appreciation for the heroic young people fighting wildfires. "Rocky Mountain Post"
The fire line scenes are so rich that you can smell the smoke, hear the clink of tools, and find yourself a part of the action. . . . Some of the fire line passages are priceless; some of the best stuff ever written about [fire] crews. . . . "After the Fire" is a very good first novel." "Wildland Firefighter Magazine"
Here s one of those remarkably mature first novels. The author has put together a story that s dramatic, exciting, affecting, and memorable. . . . Robinson mixes memories of fire fighting with some intense psychological and philosophical ruminations. Robinson clearly has a story-telling gift, and that helps him keep the story grounded in everyday reality. A fine debut. "Booklist"
"Violent nightmares and inescapable memories of combat haunt this
fast-paced novel of Lost Generation Paris, cold and perilous in February
1922. [A] well-honed intrigue."
-Ronald McFarland, poet and author of Appropriating Hemingway

"A suspense-thriller that poignantly reveals the enduring impact of the First World War on the individual soldier, Daniel Robinson s Death of a Century is a tale that explodes the myth of peaceful homecoming and explores the loyalty, violence, and desperation that emerges between men during war... A fine addition to those who want to gain a sense of the "lost generation, and those lost souls who have come home from our latest wars." --Lt. Col. Michael Stoneham, U.S. Military Academy at West Point
"The lessons of World War I are as relevant today as they were one hundred years ago and when we read novels like Death of a Century, we are reminded poignantly of these lessons." -- " The Historical Novel Society "
"Daniel Robinson s novel is an absolute romp. The premise sucks you in almost immediately and leaves the reader turning each page, looking for more and more. The author deals with the main character s shellshock with a great deal of care and sympathy, while paralleling the brutality of the world off the battlefield. This is a book not to be missed; it is a mystery, thriller, Historical Drama in one package." --"Manhattan Book Review"
