More About the Author

I've been writing fantasy novels since I was fifteen. These days I get up early every morning before the three kids and wife, and before heading off to work for credit unions. Before dawn is the best time to write, when the mind is clear, and the only distractions are self-inflicted.

I've got too many ideas and too little time. I eagerly await the day when I can spend eight hours doing this. Then I'll really be prolific. I appreciate any support you can give.

Thanks for reading!

I have been a fantasy reader all my life. This book stands firmly to be numbered among the likes of Jordan's "Wheel of Time" series, Salvatore's Drizzt novels or Eddings' "Belgariad" and "Mallorean". A unique plot and background pulls you in from the beginning and fast paced action keeps you through to the last page. Compelling characters and suprising depth of theme keep interest. I was pleasantly surprised to find it hefty enough to last a few days in an age of over-simplified, quasi screenplay offerings. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone!

This was an odd but rather memorable book. There's a strong theme of discussing the bounds of divinity and the moral and ethical duties of rules and religious adherents.
Some of the action sequences were tedious, with a 'chase' scene lasting way too long in the end.
As I write this review a month or so after reading the book, the plot, characters and issues discussed are still pretty clear, so I would say it's a memorable book.
I also would like to read further installments.

I really liked this book - it's definitely a 4.5 for me! I'm not usually a fantasy book person, sticking primarily to paranormal, but this was really good. It puts thought-provoking questions on the table, and generally leaves it to the reader to decide. What's really unique to me is that there is no real "bad guy" since everyone thinks they are doing what is right. The main theme of the story is looking at things from other's perspective, and when you do that, you can't label anyone a bad guy because from their perspective, they are doing what they genuinely think is best and most right. It's a great story of morals and family bonds - what do you do when you disagree with the ones you are never supposed to question? Is doing the right thing worth losing your family? Can you justify hurting a few for the sake of many? Very complex and thought-provoking, and I look forward to the sequel.

Not normally a genre I choose the Demigod Proving kept my interest till the end. I appreciate a book that doesn't go over-board with too much scene description but enough to help me paint a picture. There were multiple plots, twists and turns, and none were left untied at the end. I found myself interested, and looking forward to my next opportunity to read. The few technical flaws were easily compensated for with an excellent storyline and very interesting characters. I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to more from Mr Nelson.

This is a great book! I have not written many reviews but this one was worth it. I normally read anything from the kindle store that looks somewhat good. Sometimes the books disappoint me, and other times i hit the jackpot. This is one of those books that really is a great find. I spend hours going through the new releases on kindle store in the hope of a new author or book that is worth it. This is one of those authors that is worth it. At the end of the book I remember thinking how much I enjoyed it and how well I thought the author did. Disregard the book cover, I thought the book was much better. Can't go wrong with this book.

"The DemiGod Proven" has converted me to the fantasy genre. In the past I wasn't a fan of fantasy, but this book has totally sucked me in. Just even in the first few paragraphs I was hooked. I have a feeling I won't be able to stop reading it until it is finished!

Stephen Nelson's novel is an exciting epic fantasy with the grandeur of greek myths. The conflicts between the gods of the story, and the uprising of some of the demigods, is intriguing with varied perspectives. There are theological, moral, philosophical, and political arguments presented with each viewpoint character that are authentic without becoming preachy and didactic in the process. They give the story real depth, while also leaving the reader with something to think about afterwards. These differing viewpoints seamlessly woven into the world's makeup as the character's themselves, and don't feel out of place at all. Rather they are at the very heart and soul of the novel, and the themes portrayed.

The setting is original, and has an old world feel to it, giving the impression of a story taking place in the time of ancient myths and legends without drawing too much from well transversed mythologies (like greek, norse, or roman). Its a more primal, bloodier, darker time of life, with tyrants, gods, demigods, dragons, and powers beyond man's comprehension colliding in epic conflict. Yet there is a balanced sense of hope in the main character's perspective and ideals as to keep this novel from feeling too dark or moody.

The characters are well portrayed and engaging. The dilemma's they face perplexing, varied, and personal. Stephen characterization is so well portrayed that readers will empathize with heroes and villains alike, and feel the intense personal drama they are living, which is sure to keep them riveted to the page.

Like many books of this length the pacing at first leaves something to be desired, at least to readers who might prefer quicker stories.
