Author Biography

I have degrees from California State University, Chico in both philosophy and English literature, but it took me thirty years to calm down long enough to write a full length novel.

My wife and I live on the Island of Maui. I am an avid ocean swimmer, surfer, motorcyclist, former skydiver and all around adrenalin junkie, which you will see reflected in my writing.

I am inviting you to take the Arzat series journey with me and fall in love with "Alex" and my two "Arzats" the way that I have.

Mahalo!

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

In Natura is a science fiction novel by David Samuel Frazier, the sequel to In Situ and the second book in the Arzat series. After discovering the incredible truth about the intelligent dinosaur-like creatures of 65 million years ago, In Natura picks up where In Situ left off with paleontologist Alexandra Moss. After sleeping for ten thousand years in a cryogenic chamber, Alex, her husband Tom, and the reptilian Arzats Ara and Mot wake to find themselves in a beautiful paradise of wild gardens and plentiful greenery. It is only as they begin to explore their new Eden that they realise it’s not quite the idyllic scene that it first appears.

I went straight on to reading In Natura after In Situ, so there was no agonising wait for me to see how Alex and the others would get on in a whole new world. The leap forward into the future has given David Samuel Frazier the chance to expand his concept and characters vastly, taking them to a whole new level which really ups its game from book one. The writing is polished and engaging, with plenty of inventive action moments in a lush and vivid new setting. The character clash between the Arzats and their human companions is delightfully creative, and the theme of ongoing life and survival still holds strong throughout the series. Overall, In Natura strengthens the Arzat series with a fresh new tale in the future, and all science fiction fans are sure to enjoy this series the more it goes on.
