More About the Author

My background is an Artist, turned Architect, who's finally getting around to finishing those stories I started writing long ago, when I sat on my front porch as a kid. I write because I can't not. I write because I want to finish the story that I started, in my paintings, in my poetry, and even before then, when I sat around a table with my friends, slaying dragons.

What a fantastic introduction to a new writer and his fantasy world. The descriptions are vivid, the characters full of interest and potential. The atmospheric sketches are simply beautiful. The writing pulls you in right from the start and this short fascinating snippet leaves you wanting more. There's menace and grace, death and rebirth, angels and Dragons - I fail to see how any author could have packed more into such an intriguing peek into the world of Evarun. Can't wait for the next instalment!

This isn't a genre I usually read, which is why I was so pleasantly surprised to be completely taken into the author's world. The illustrations are beautiful in the Kindle format. Looking forward to the next installment!

A fallen prince, a boy who may be an angel, a craggy wasteland, dragons, and dark wizards with "dancing hordes" of followers. Sounds pretty cool, right? That's because it is. This first installment in the series is a short, fast read. I'm looking forward to finding out what comes next.

Four and a half stars for the entire novella in parts. I really enjoyed the whole thing overall, which is why I rounded up. I've had the whole thing in my kindle for awhile now and when I started reading the other day I was hooked immediately. Awakening Evarun is a dark atmospheric fantasy, accented by the author's well done drawings. This brief glimpse definitely makes me excited for the followup novel, Veil of the Dragon which I've just ordered. One person marked this as a con, but I rather enjoyed the Christian undertones and religious imagery. I also found it nice that God was thanked in all the acknowledgement sections. To my mind, and being a writer myself, I know that is the very source of talent and inspiration.

There are a few cons, but I hope they don't cause anyone to miss out! First off I have to make a comment on pricing. Right before a freebie sale I bought this set (I think it came to about $18) I don't feel disgruntled because I did enjoy it (and I do like to support writers in that position slightly above my own :p ), but for the length of the whole product it is a bit much. Another is it's a large rich world,but most likely because of the size and the skipping around too, I felt lost occasionally and like I could have done with a bit more information. I'm sure the novel will remedy that. The third part I'm not even sure how it fits in the scheme of the whole story, but I hope to see more of the Witch Queen in VotD. I'd like to learn a little more about her. I'm looking forward to more insight into the all the characters, especially Aalyanna for some reason, partly because of what she is. The bit of information about her seemed inserted at one point like it already should have been known. Perhaps I'd accidentally skipped something (if so totally my fault!

Written by Tom Barczak, Awakening Evarun is an ongoing fantasy serial novel. The story revolves around a man named Talus who is attempting to survive and escape Galadash, a city ruined by powerful and cruel dragon-riding wizards. As Talus runs, the wizards continue to close in and soon he realizes that escape is no longer an option. Here are my thoughts on Awakening Evarun Part I;

Pros

+ Grim, gritty and foreboding world.

+ Intriguing story quickly draws you in and leaves you wanting more.

+ Extremely descriptive and well-written.

+ Author provides hand drawn illustrations.

Cons

- The word cenotaph is used a bit too often.

- Installments are too short and a bit expensive ($2.99) for an average of 14-15 pages. Prime Members can read for free however. Unfortunately, I'm not one or I'd continue the series.

- Story jumps around a bit too much for its length.

- Slight Christian overtones. This is just my opinion.

Awakening Evarun Part I was engaging and impressive despite its brevity. The author's descriptive writing skills and ability to draw you into the story so quickly demonstrates a rare talent many writers never seem to develop. If you're a Prime Member of Amazon and can read this short chapters for free then I highly recommend them. If not just be forewarned that spending $2.99 will only get you about 20 minutes of reading. Other than that a great start to the series.

I should have looked more closely. "Awakening Evarun (Part I of VI)" by Tom Barczak is not the first novel of six, it is the first four chapters (30 pages) of the book. A marketing hook, I have to presume, like the old serials. While the first few pages of AE start out promising, it devolves into a series of fast-paced but confusing incidents that tap into a veiled reworking of dramatic incidences in the life of Jesus for meaning. Repeated imagery, vague scenes, a confusing stoning, and a boy (and angels) who come and go with no inherent logic pepper this teaser. Fantasy lovers may like the ploy and vague story line, but it's a 3 from me.

"Awakening Evarun" by Tom Barczak is an ongoing, illustrated serial. I found the first volume to be about a 15 to 20 minute read which I enjoyed very much. Barczak is an especially poetic writer and I found the complexities of his sentence construction to be equally entertaining as his fine illustrations.

In some ways, "Awakening Evarun" has more of the feel of an epic poem than a fantasy novel. When you dig into this work, be sure you are free of distractions and have time to let the images and symbols roll over you. Looking forward to the next volumes.
