Book Description

First they chase him through the mountains for days. Then they murder his grandfather. And just as seventeen-year-old Silas Ainsley is about to escape his nameless enemies, he is killed.

This is where it should end, but Silas' journey is far from over.

He wakes up and finds himself in a realm called Marenon; a place where humans are not the superior race, where magic is a way of life, and war is threatening to destroy it all.

Forced to make his way through the afterlife alone, Silas joins with a band of lawless mercenaries who claim they can help Silas find his murdered grandfather in exchange for his help on one of their more dangerous missions.

Along the way, Silas discovers he is part of an ancient prophecy declaring that he is the only one who can deliver Marenon from the enemies that wish to extinguish its people - the same enemies that killed Silas and his grandfather.



Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Ever since I could first string words together, I loved writing fiction. I would always take my stories to my parents and they would read them, giving me positive feedback. Now, I write for the masses, and am happy to see that I still get wonderful feedback from readers from all over the world. I aim to entertain and leave boring at the door with my fast-paced stories. I hope you continue to enjoy my books, as much as I enjoy writing them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book Review December 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I have to say it's been over a year since the last time i've read a 800 pages book in less than 10 hours :P I guess that is only a proof of what a great book the Deliverer is.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Review of: The Deliverer April 18, 2012
Format:Paperback
To be honest, it has been a long time since I have read a book in the fantasy genre so I was somewhat apprehensive about whether or not I would like this book. Now that I have finished it I can say that not only did I like it, I thought it was one of the best books I've read in a while.

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

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry, but not very original October 12, 2012
By Idun
Format:Paperback
OK story and ok written, but way too much clichés, which really ruined the book for me. Boy living with grandfather because parents are dead. Someone comes after them, have to run for their lives, boy and grandfather gets separated. Things like that. Also later in the book there's a lot of the typical stupidity. Something along the lines of this:
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.
