"Angels in the Mist (Water Dragon Publishing), the first installment in Ryan Southwick’s The Z-Tech Chronicles trilogy, has enough intensity and inventiveness for three books all by itself. Brimming with elements of practically every genre including exhilarating action-adventure, riveting sci-fi, urban fantasy and breathtaking romance, Angels in the Mist surprises and satisfies with every hairpin turn."


-Judy Moreno, BookTrib


"At the same time classic fantasy, futuristic sci-fi, tense page-turning suspense novel, and surprisingly contemporary ode to a new generation of female protagonist driven adventure stories, Angels in the Mist is a unique and refreshing amalgamation of narrative that is simultaneously both refreshing in its novelty, yet oddly familiar and genuine in its telling."


-June, Duovolt Art

"Angels in the Mist is a fun read that I thoroughly enjoyed. The way sci-fi is interwoven with this fantasy storyline is great. I loved the character of Anne, too, and how she developed throughout the novel. My favorite parts were definitely the action scenes!"
