About DARC AGES - Book I-III
"It's clever, well written and very entertaining. I think of classics like Mark Twain's A Yankee in King Arthur's Court and the sci-fi of the Strugatsky Brothers when I read Yngve's stories. [...] His own illustrations are a valuable addition and give the story an added dimension. [...] I greatly enjoyed the trilogy and would recommend it to anyone who likes good books."
About DARC AGES BOOK ONE: The Awakening
"But at the end of the day it's about entertainment. Joy of reading."
"'Darc Ages' is also reminiscent of a kind of older pulp literature in the SF genre that appeals to me, i.e. a B-movie feeling that reminds me of watching horror or science fiction films from the 1950s."
-Old Adult Reads Young Adult
"This book was exciting from the start and the excitement kept up till the end.
"Now that I have just finished reading Book One, I look forward to reading the next part, because I will definitely read on."
"Darc Ages is a rather lighthearted adventure story where David gets to know the new world, impress others with his knowledge and abilities, and in true heroic spirit tries to help the people who saved him.
"You are drawn into the illusion that this is what the world would really look like after an apocalypse. That the world is strange, yet very familiar is also a strength."
"Towards the end I get the most involved in the narrative, that's when it really feels like things are starting to happen, and I have come to know Darc and the other characters better. It bodes very well for the next book in the trilogy!"
"Anyhow this book is quite unlike anything I've read before, but it is readable and exciting. Very different, but in a good way."
"I recommend you read it!"
"A readable, illustrated(!) and imaginatively narrated history. I got involved in the plot and want to follow the characters' fates further and get a broader picture of the futuristic scenario. Looking forward to the next installments in the series."

-Pal & Pepsi, Goodreads
"There was a constant hilarity in both the way the world worked, the presentation of the characters, and what they said. That alone is reason for me to recommend the trilogy of Darc Ages. The story is absurd in so many ways, but it works! "
"The Awakening is a really exciting and interesting read, and I will certainly read the other parts! Recommended!"
"The book is easy to read and very pleasant. I like the protagonist, and find it exciting to follow his experiences after he wakes up from his long sleep."
