Books like Damaged And No Longer Under Warranty are why science fiction will always be an adored genre. The author is able to exhaust his creative ways without limitations, creating a fun, incredible and almost impossible story. The storyline in Damaged And No Longer Under Warranty never stops being appealing. Alan Felyk knows how to capture his readers’ attention. As a reader, you enjoy a ride full of suspense, plot twists, excellent storytelling skills and narration. This book is amusing to read.
The world in Damaged And No Longer Under Warranty is not your usual world. The reader is taken to a different universe. In this universe, characters, events and occurrences that transpire are enthralling. The people in Alan Felyk’s world are not your regular folk. They have super powers, their reasoning capabilities are beyond this world, and their physical strength is unmatched.
I like the character development in the book. Alan Felyk’s characters are never alike. Major characters are fun to follow, minor characters are amusing and the reader often wants to see more of them in the storyline. Alan Felyk did an impressive job creating the characters. They are truly inimitable. The main storyline is about Paul Tomenko. We follow Paul in his quest to preserve what he thinks is crucial in the universe. Paul is a great character. He is sharp, focused and always ready for the next mission. You will love Paul Tomenko for his thinking skills and how fast he is.
Reading this book was a delight not just because of Paul, but also other characters that he interacted with. I enjoyed Paul in his element and only disliked how unbothered he was with some of his family. You will enjoy this book if you are a patient reader. Alan Felyk takes his time to explain events and describe characters and one may feel like the story is moving at a slow pace. I like his approach however because I get to really take in the story and feel the full depth of this epic sci-fi adventure.
Damaged And No Longer Under Warranty is a uniquely humorous science fiction story that is as creative as it is entertaining. This is quite possibly one of the most unique science fiction stories I’ve read this year. It takes high minded scientific ideas of the universe, inserts witty humor, and adds a variety of colorful characters to deliver a fun and unpredictable adventure readers will surely enjoy.

The battle to preserve eternity continues …
For Paul Tomenko, relocating trillions upon trillions of life forms on Earth to the Paraverse wasn’t all that difficult. So easy, in fact, he does it in his sleep. After slipping into a coma, Paul uses his latent divine knowledge to create the Paraverse while imagining 50 more years of continued life on Earth. Then he dumps—no pun intended—an incalculable number of souls residing in his lower intestinal tract into the new domain with the simplicity of a bowel movement.
But preserving the promise of eternal existence comes with a cost. Forced to abandon Maggie Mae Monahan, one of his two lovers, and two neo-Neanderthal children (Gronk and Grita) in what becomes known as the Originverse, Paul travels to Neoterica to begin anew with Allie Briarsworth, his other lover.
As default caretaker of the new expanse, Paul discovers he has committed a string of blunders that endanger forevermore. He can’t remember how he structured the Paraverse, and the schematics are deep inside him, retrievable piece by piece only when he makes eye contact with Allie. Unable to summon a heavenly version of Home Advisor to repair his expanse, Paul reassembles the Bioprovidence research team to make the needed modifications. But the crew lacks three of its essential members who are still in the Originverse. Challenged to create duplicates of the trio, he reluctantly does so, worried that a replica of Maggie Mae will re-create the love triangle that tormented him on Earth. And if all that wasn’t enough, the Cassamarians, fire-breathing alien insectoids determined to destroy humanity’s standing as the chosen species, have breached the barrier separating the Originverse and Paraverse.
In this sequel to Damaged Beyond All Recognition, Paul discovers how the cosmos began and who created the first universe. In doing so, he realizes he might have the power to do what untold gods before him did not: eliminate the number one scourge for all life forms.
Most of the supporting cast from the first Infinity’s Trinity novel returns in this book: Cher the Gatekeeper and Katharine Ross the Librarian, figments patterned after two celebrities for whom Paul has lusted; Gronk and Grita, two “resurrected” six-year-old neo-Neanderthals who are the most intelligent humans on Earth; Tsutomu Yamaguchi, an innovative bioengineer named after a Japanese man who survived nuclear bomb blasts in Hiroshima and Nagasaki; and Dr. Peter Lexington Townshend, the former head of Bioprovidence now forced to assume a job he detests. In addition, some new characters join the ensemble: Dzhambo the Ukrainian Vodka-Drinking Circus Bear, Paul’s self-appointed bodyguard; a sassy Tina Turner-lookalike who patrols the most significant storage unit among the stars; and Rovert, an asylum-seeking Cassamarian who is desperately in need of dietary change.
Buckle up for an existential trip oiled with humor that glides across all that has been on the way to all that we hope will be.
