I read all three Guy Erma and the Son of Empire books so it was only fitting that I ‘read’ The Artwork of Guy Erma and the Son of Empire!
Disclosure: I received a complimentary e-book copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are 100% my own unless otherwise noted.
Guy Erma and the Son of Empire is a new SciFi series which has had 60,000 downloads in its first 3 months.
These are all original SF drawings that illustrate and imagine the new worlds described in Guy Erma and the Son of Empire
This book collects together a host of images and artwork created by a variety of artists which illustrate and bring to life this amazing adventure.
These pictures, I hope, will add to your enjoyment of the series, and help you visualise the story very much as I see it.
In the words of lead artist Boban: What you can’t see does not exist.
Enjoy Guy Erma!
I have read the entire Guy Erma series. You can find all of my reviews here:
I enjoyed all three of the books (and really wish there were more!)
When I was asked if I wanted to review the The Artwork of Guy Erma and the Son of Empire, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. I mean, how could I turn it down when I enjoyed every other Guy Erma book up to this point!?
I absolutely loved seeing the artwork from the Guy Erma and the Son of Empire series! When you read, you clearly get your own visions in your mind so to see the artwork “behind the scenes” of what things look like in the eyes of the author and illustrator – magic.
It is a short book (incredibly short) but was so neat to see what the thought process was and the actual artwork. I feel kind of nerdy, but I really did enjoy seeing the process!
If you have read the Guy Erma series and enjoyed them as much as I did; you will definitely enjoy this addition!

Book Description for Exile Book 3:
Guy Erma and the Son of Empire is a new three-part action adventure, set a long time ago on a planet far far away.
” Someone somewhere had decided Sas Darona plague could be used as a weapon.”
“They called them poison pills, and in some cases the glass eco-systems containing six venomous flies were displayed as part of contemporary interior decor.
Strange!” Karl Valvanchi mused, “When you consider the insects are practically unstoppable and breed exponentially into great clouds of death. These plague weapons went beyond deadly. They were planet-killers.”

13-year-old Guy Erma has run away from everything he has even known and no longer knows what the future holds.
