The Deliverer is an epic fantasy story, starting in our world and then move into the world of Marenon, written mostly from 2 different POVs. The author gets his time with the events in our world instead of rushing to move the main character into the fantasy and i liked that. Because we get a good idea of what a person Silas is before and after everything. The writing itself is lighter than in the usual epic fantasy stories, and that's a reason a book such big was read so easily. Either way, there is nothing missing and the writing fits the story perfectly, with descriptions now and there for the places without being overdone, development and full background to all the characters (even the secondary ones) and lastly, a very well written descriptions of events which were held in a different world or time. I never had any problem, moving from the one character to the other, understand the story, remember the world's history or place when every event was placed chronologically opposite the other.
The characters are almost all likeable for different reasons. Even the bad guys, gain a respect of some level as characters.
More precisely, Silas is a young 17 boy of prophecy. He is well matured, clever but sometimes has he moments and does things without thinking about them. Either way, it's easy to connect with him and be one of my favorites characters as well. Need to point out, how clever the author played the whole swordsmanship thing. Instead of going through a fast training than in most books, he found a way to have Silas ready for the world before everything.Read more ›
Jason has a wonderful ability to paint mental pictures with the way that he writes. I could vividly see the landscapes he described and the battles that took place. The character development in this book is very well done, but not overdone. Some authors spend so much time developing their characters that it cripples their plot development, not so in this book.
Jason does a fantastic job of keeping the tempo of the book upbeat. There were rarely times that I found the book dragging along. Silas and his group were constantly on the move going from one part of Marenon to the other trying to collect the medallions they are after. I'm still on the edge of my seat waiting to see what will happen when they can get their hands on all 6 of them. This book does a fantastic job of leaving you wanting more, which is good since it's a series. There have been many series that I don't bother going on to the next book. That will not be the case with this one. The second book, The Gatekeeper, has been added to my TBR list.
Overall I think that if you are a fan of the fantasy genre this is a wonderful series for you to start. You will not be disappointed with the way that you are whisked off into the world of Marenon to follow along with Silas as he strives to live up to his title of "The Deliverer".
My Rating: 5/5
Hero:"I HAVE to save him"
Guy on hero's side: "But it's a really bad idea, he was supposed to be caught, he was willing to sacrifice himself, if you go his sacrifice will be in vain"
Hero:"BUT I HAVE TO"
Guy on hero's side:"Fine fine, let's all go then, I secretly prepared because I know you'd say that."
A bit later...
Hero:"Ok, so maybe it wasn't such a good idea, we're all about to die!"
Guy on hero's side:"No no, it's ok, it's not your fault, turns out you were right to do this after all, and if we die at least we did the right thing!"
That just gets annoying. There's others clichés as well, like key persons turning out to be traitors,and one of the "good" persons just happens to overhear the right conversation at the right time to find this out. This book might be good if you're still a child/YA, or if you don't read much fantasy. But, especially if you've read a lot of fantasy, this book is quite bad in comparison to some of the epic books within this genre. Because this book is like the author has been inspired by other fantasy books and written his own version. It's a very "typical" story, and while it's not badly written, it's not particularly original.
Perhaps the second and third book in the series are better, I don't know, but I have no plans of reading them as I just barely managed to finish the first.
That said, it is the first book the author has written, and I think, if he can just come up with some original ideas of his own as well as get more experience writing, he can write epic books to.

I already replied to this on JDM's blog. I loved all three of his books, and would gladly have paid double for the 2nd and 3rd one. Of course, free is always good, but Jason does not need to bribe me to leave a fantastic review of his books, be ause they ARE fantastic! I am waiting, not too... Read More
