From the Author

This story about an orphan named Evan Burl is fiction, but millions of children in the real world will go to sleep tonight without any parents to tuck them in.

That is why 10% of the profit from this book goes to caring for orphans and supporting at-risk youth around the world.

Please consider joining me in helping real kids experience their own happy endings by donating time or money to an orphanage or non-profit that benefits at-risk youth near you.

Two great organizations to consider supporting if you aren't aware of one already:

Author of Evan Burl and the Falling

Evan Burl, age fifteen, is the oldest of a group of orphans who live and work in the isolated castle of Dǣmanhur under the brutal supervision of Uncle M¹zol and his goons, Ballard and Yesler. The orphans are always hungry, are punished severely for breaking the rules, and are forced to work from sunup to sundown. A mysterious message in the Book predicts that Evan will become an evil sapient when he turns sixteen, and that he cannot be turned from his destiny.

Each chapter begins with a header specifying how long until the mysterious 'Falling'. This is important to note, as the story moves back and forward in time. I think this was meant to be a literary device to enhance suspense. Personally, I found it irritating. One flashback is one thing, but this felt more like telling a story in two timelines at once.

It takes a while for the story to really gain its stride--at first, it seems as though it is trying too hard, with the melodramatic evil uncle, the punishments and the affected spelling of character's names. But once it settle in and gains pace, it improves ... only to finish with a `to be continued' cliffhanger ending, with no resolution to any of the questions raised. What are the orphans manufacturing? What is the `falling'? Where did the orphans come from? Is Evan really evil?

Evan Burl and the Falling could be the start of something good. But it finished too soon and left too many unanswered questions for my liking. I personally prefer each book in a series to have a partial resolution that gives more clues about the final climax, which completes the overall story arc.

First, a very big thank you to Justin Blaney, the author, for providing free versions of the book. At first I thought there was some complicated problems with the first formats I tried to read (mobi, epub, etc). Justine tried to resolve the problem by offering the novel in every conceivable format for free. Turns out all the e-versions have the same problem related to the use of special characters, usually used in the name of the primary characters. In the e-formats those special characters were simply a blank square box. That's a tough start when the first thing a reader deals with is how to figure out what these character's names are or how to pronounce them. This is a very common mistake made by beginning science fiction or fantasy writers. I didn't try the PDF or the hard copy so I'm not sure this problem would present itself in these editions.

Before the opening there is a “Cast of Characters”. This is thoughtful of the writer and does comes in handy.

The opening scene is, what we are lead to believe, a Falling. And it does it's job. It is exciting and it keeps you reading. Naturally, it breaks away before the splat. There-after the “time until falling” at the start of each chapter seems directly linked to the climax of the book.

The natural reading instinct is that this “time until falling” is a dramatic “tick-tock” tool effectively used by nearly every author in some form or another, ticking down to the climax for the story.

Big mistake... careful attention to this “tick-tock” the reader learns this dramatic tool is being used to flash-forward and flash-back in the story which only confuses things if you're not ready for it.

You won't be disappointed! With its starving abused "fallings", evil ruthless characters, mysterious events and Evan Burl....determined to save the fallings and himself, all without turning into the monster a mysterious letter claimed he would become. This is a well paced, rich, magical journey. With a world built with such color and flare you can imagine yourself there with the jungle bearing down on you or feel the breeze on the beach.

The way the story develops and jumps between characters compounding mystery and creating a dynamic of conflicting characters only adds to the whole. I can't wait to to see how this story plays out in the next installment. I am recommending this book to everyone!

A big thank you to Justin Blaney for sending me a paperback in exchange for an honest review. I finished the book with the newly edited ebook copy.

When Justin Blaney asked me if I would be interested in reviewing his book Evan Burl and the Falling I went and read the blurb to see if I would be interested. And after reading the above description I was really intrigued and anxiously said yes. Once I read the first chapter I was hooked. Justin Blaney has a way of writing that keeps you turning pages to try and unravel the mystery. And this book had a lot of mystery. Just when I thought I had one thing figured out I would turn a few pages and find things had changed, and things were not always as they seemed. The mystery and thrilling ride was kept going until the very end when everything finally came together, yet it left a little mystery for a sequel but not enough to have me screaming "WHAT!"

Evan Burl has been living as a sort of orphan at Daemanhur castle with his uncle Mazol. There are orphans called the fallings that fall from the sky in chests that open magically with a key that was sent with the chest before it. And there are machines that run as if by magic that all the orphans are forced to work on even though they have no idea what they are making. This is all part of a much bigger thrilling story of sapience and those that would do anything to control it and use it for their own power and gain. Evan discovers he is in the middle of it as he begins to uncover his own powers and the delusions that come with it. Evan just wants to do what was right and save his family from Mazol and his henchmen but even he can't predict where the story will go.

One of my favorite characters was Cevo. Cevo was pure evil. This character is severely warped.
