Book Description

A rolling tremor passes through the land of Uton signaling the return of long absent magic as well as an ancient evil. Ryson Acumen, purebred delver, learns the Sphere of Ingar, a talisman that captured all magical energy long ago, is free from its tomb in Sanctum Mountain. As violent, evil creatures return to shred every notion of reality, the sphere gains awareness and chooses to spew corrupted magical power to obliterate all life.

The sphere must be destroyed but it rests within Sanctum, a hollow mountain with a single path to its center. The way remains defended by devices crafted long ago, forged by members of each race to thwart entry into the inner core. Those that wish to defeat the sphere must not only overcome these barriers, they must conquer the mistrust which has flourished during the long period of separation. Human, elf, dwarf, algor and delver must reunite to face the secrets of the ages that once undone will change their lives forever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fantasy World January 16, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
In a world without magic, magic comes alive again and strange creatures are sighted that have lived only in legends.

Delvers live along side of humans and are the only different race left from the times of magic. That is what humans and delvers thought.
Ryson Acumen is a purebred delver, creatures of intense curiosity and speed of movement, and he is traveling to discover the cause of an unexplained disturbance of the land. During the beginning of his travels Ryson encounters a zombie that tries to kill him and an elf who befriends him. There are more races to meet and there is a quest... to race against more magic being released in the world.

This first book of a trilogy builds a believable world and the action increases as the book moves along.

Because the book started off as a slow read for me, I gave only gave it 4 stars. The last half of the book was worthy of a 5 star book and I'm looking forward to the next book in the trilogy, hoping it will be a true 5 star all the way from start to finish.

I enjoyed the book and the characters and the action. If you like fantasy and action and epic adventure stories, you'll like this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars The long, long, long road March 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is slow. The pacing is slow, the action is slow, even the wording is slow. The author takes the stance that why use ten words to describe something when he can use thirty. This would not matter if the thirty words chosen invoked a sense of wonder or beauty, but instead they are simply as interesting as mashed peas.

So, the basic premise of the book is that main character uncovers a ring under a mountain - I mean a sphere buried in the mountain. He meets with an wise elder named Gandalf - I mean Mappel - who tells him to gather a fellowship and meet in Rivendell - sorry Connel. Where they shall journey to the mountain and cast the sphere back into the fires - well destroy it after passing some tests. I am sure the story seems familiar, but I just cannot place where I read it before.

All kidding aside this book is one dull read. I forced myself to get through it, but it was it was a difficult book to convince myself to pick up. The number of positive reviews may cause me to begin to read book 2 in the hopes that it improves. There is an interesting story here to be told, but Jeff Inlo is not an interesting storyteller.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written, very slow August 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is not often I give up on a book but midway through I gave up on this. It reads like a primary reader, characters are not well developed and are far from believable, very one dimensional.

2.0 out of 5 stars Slow start to a series... July 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I tried really hard to like this book, but I just couldn't. It was so slow and repetitive. Some details were spelled out in too great a detail and others (such as what delvers look like) were missing. The weight of the book was also off - the beginning took forever to get going and then when the author got to the important part (when they actually arrived at Sanctum), the book sped up too much. It almost seemed like the author got tired of writing and just decided to half-ass the most important part of the book. Also there were a lot of typos that could not be overlooked - such as the use of accept instead of except. The author really needs an editor. I usually give authors a second chance but I will not be reading the rest of this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Read January 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Book I of Delver Magic takes us into a world without magic. Mr. Inlo weaves a wonderful tale of humans, elves, dwarves and delvers on the way to release the imprisoned magic.

I downloaded a free edition off a different site. If the Amazon edition is the same, Mr. Inlo could use an editor. Spelling and word usage leaves a little to be desired at times. However, that doesn't detract from a very munchable book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written and disappointing August 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm an avid reader of fantasy novels on my Kindle. I had just finished several excellent novels by authors such as Brandon Sanderson and Robin Hobb and decided to take a chance on this one. From the very first chapter I was disappointed with the quality of the writing. In my opinion it reads like the author is a high school student writing their first novel. For example, the mayor of a town following an earth quake encouraging his town council members not to spend money on unnecessary repairs says. "You know what I mean, some poor slob thinks his house is starting to wear down and will come to us saying the quake damaged his home." Really.... "some poor slob"? The interactions between the characters seem to have no realistic or interesting depth and and the writing style is weak. I quickly tired of the writing and have moved on (perhaps the writing improves later but I'm not going to waste the time finding out.)

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Good July 21, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is probably a good read if you are age 9 or 10 but not for an adult. It's really basic and overly descriptive and gives the reader no credit for having an imagination. It's more like a series of short predictable episodes that are dumped together to make one long tedious story filled with shallow, inconsistent and all too similar characters. It's just, well, bad. I forced myself to keep reading as long as possible hoping it would improve, but after I got about 80% of the way through, I finally quit. I already know how it ends and even if by some miracle the author puts in a twist, I don't care and he never made me want to. He has created no interest or bond with the characters strong enough to make the reader want to see what happens to them. Don't waste your time.

More About the Author

I am very grateful for devices like the Kindle. They've allowed ordinary people, like me, to reach an audience that was previously inaccessible. All of these new, independent writers that are now offering their work are the pioneers of a new publishing world. It will be interesting to see what this world is like in just a few years.

As for me, I live in NJ with my wife, Joan, and our dog, Jilly. "Inlo" is actually a shortened version of my full last name, Ianniello. I have my first trade paperback published by Rainbow Ridge Books using my full name. It's titled "When Do I See God?: Finding the Path to Heaven." If you've enjoyed my other books, please consider that one as well.

Please visit my website,, for more information about new releases, free ebooks, updates, and other news about my writing. Thank you.
