"The Last Iteration is one of those little gems that you stumble upon, not expecting such a great novel. ... a group of seemingly disconnected and opposing people are somehow plopped out of their lives and dropped into an endless labyrinth with no rhyme or reason. They don’t even know what they are supposed to do or even if they are all alone. And, fearsome elements beat down upon them and monsters that multiply every time they appear. Will they retain their old grudges from the outside world? Will they come to trust each other? To sacrifice for each other?
The writing style is easy to follow and a reader quickly becomes enveloped in this strange bizarro world they these people find themselves in. Well done." - Dave Wilde - Library Thing
"The Last Iteration is well-told through its richly-strewn characters that range from pitiful, to seductive, to amusing. The plot is enticing, spawning a dream-like mystery that is one of Mel Arthur ‘s greatest achievements in crafting this novel." - Conor Tripp
"The Last Iteration is an excellent first novel. The story is unique and intriguing as the characters make their way through totally unknown territory towards an unknown destination which allows the reader to focus more on the characters and their interactions." - Richard B Pook
