Book Description

Long ago, when the earth was young... Four ancient beings created man to be the bastion of the earth and its creatures. But when The Great Tyrant came and chased The Ancients away, the world was transformed into a place of fear and isolation. Over time humans lost the connection they had with a world they had been created to protect. Now, deep in the forests that surround Gray Mountain, two bears find a small child that is abandoned and left for dead. They name him Evercloud, and raise him as a member of their kingdom. Teaching him the secrets of the elders, they tell him of the ancient beings that created man and the rumors of their return. Evercloud must now go on a quest to return The Ancients to power. However, in another corner of the land, a man known only as The Messenger travels the land under a white hood, on a mission to prevent the return of The Ancients. We follow the paths each of these men take until their stories collide in an epic battle of good versus evil.

4.0 out of 5 stars Epic fantasy August 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When picking free books you never know quite what you are going to get, self published books can have some real problems...poor editing, grammatical errors etc. Reading an indie book can either be a gross disappointment or a wonderful adventure. Everflame turned out to be a wonderful adventure, think Christopher Paolini meets C.S. Lewis.

Usually, epic fantasy depicts great good battling great evil against almost insurmountable odds, but that isn't strictly the case with Everflame. In the beginning battle lines seem clear, but as the book progresses you realize that there is no clear cut good or evil; each "side" is painted in shades of grey and readers are left wondering just who to root for.

Characters are very well developed, Peters gives each a depth that is reflective of the human condition. For example, Eveneye displays great courage and conviction but later suffers from self-doubt and weakness. There is a strong message of personal responsibility through out, but at the same time Peters drives home the fact that no man is an island...we need support from those who love us to become all we have the potential to be.

To qualify why I only gave 4 stars instead of 5, I do not appreciate abrupt cliffhanger endings. I loved this book and would have purchased the second in the series without the teaser ending. I personally prefer a bit more resolution at the end of an installment of a series. I do have to note that Peters handled the ending of Everflame 2: The Burning Man in a much more satisfactory manner.

For me, the best measure of a book is how much I miss the characters after finishing and after finishing the second book in this series I miss them all. The 3rd book isn't even available but I feel as if I am missing something...like life is going on in their world but I am not fortunate enough to travel with my friends. I highly recommend Everflame and the follow up book, Everflame 2.

Again, consider that my native language is not English and that I'm not and expert, not even aficionado, literary critic. I just know what I like and dislike. In this case --and this review is valid for all three books of the Everflame saga, I couldn't stop reading and, at the same time picturing the characters and the environment described like they were from a movie. Silent laughter, sadness and even reflexion, depending on the situation being read came to me as I read this book and the rest of the series. Great light and healthy reading for kids and teens without being burdened with distasteful, crude or sexually charged passages!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! May 17, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Where do I start?!

When I picked this book I was just going for a free time filler. I've read plenty of free books and the majority are a disappoint due to terrible writing, bland and inconstant characters and poor execution of the story itself.

This however, was the complete opposite!

Dylan does an amazing job with the execution of the story. His creative writing makes the story suspenseful with the simplest of sentences. Every page my, eyes darted anxiously as I waited for the next move of Evercloud and company. I was really captured by the relationship of the characters. I love how The Arthur builds the bond between Evercloud and The bears and I enjoy how he executes Evercloud's behavior during his first interaction among humans. It feels completely realistic and the awkwardness has you cringing in sympathy!

The story behind the ancients is very well developed and quite interesting. The twist with the ancient Chera is one for surprise.But before I babble off spoliers,

It's a really great book, a must read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Children's book July 14, 2013
By Summer
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this book thinking it would be a bit more mature than what it is, but it wasn't. It's more for children. I recommend it to children who like stories from an animal's point of view, but it's not my cup of tea.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly edited January 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really tried to like this book, it was an interesting premise, but the poor punctuation made it unreadable for me. Apostrophes in the wrong places drive me nuts - it's a very basic, very simple rule which an aspiring writer should be able to get right. The punctuation after speech is all wrong too, which made it feel unnatural and stilted. Such a shame.

1.0 out of 5 stars Could not get through it March 28, 2013
By Michael
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I tried to get through Everflame, I really did, but it's just too terribly written. The dialog is stunted and forced, it's rife with grammatical and punctuation errors, and the imagery was overly verbose and ineffective. Unfortunately, I couldn't get far enough into the story to judge character or plot development.

I'm normally a huge fan of reading indie writers (one of the biggest benefit of e-readers, in my opinion), especially in the fantasy and Sci-fi genres. B.V. Larson's Haven and Star Force series are excellent. Anthony Ryan's Blood Song: Number 1 in series (Raven's Shadow) was brilliant (which is why it was purchased by a publisher). Everflame falls far short of the standards set by works such as those.

I applaud the author's ambition of writing a novel. It's not something I have the patience or creativity to do. But find a few intelligent friends that will give it a read-through and help you edit. It would have done wonders.
