Book Description

Parallel lives are fated to collide in The Execution, a medieval, fantasy thriller, dark adventure, and tragic love story set in fourteenth century France.

A young priest enters the prison cell of a condemned mercenary and is shocked to see the face of this murderer is his own—a mirror image of himself. Unknown to each other until now, the twins form a bond of brotherhood, sealed with their darkest secrets. But with only hours until the execution, the priest questions which man should truly be condemned. Should it be the ruthless killer—a boy from an orphanage who suffered the unimaginable—or himself, the man of God whose own tormented desires ended in tragedy? As the sun rises, the young priest knows what he must do. But can he make the ultimate sacrifice, and free them both?

Motion Picture coming soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling, edge of your seat entertainment March 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading this book, and I loved it! I spent the entire day, completely lost in the incredible story, of two brothers, unlike any I have ever read. I was on the edge of my seat, as their fantastical lives were laid out so eloquently, so deeply, and so colourfully, by Sharon Cramer. I found myself "seeing" their worlds, believing their loves, and investing myself, in both of these characters. Sharon has painted an amazingly accurate picture, of what could be used in a very intense discussion over the nature/nurture debate. Make sure you have a good supply of tissue handy, and a few hours to spend, as you won't want to put it down until you see the fabulous, emotional and unforeseen climax to this great book! I am definitely adding Sharon Cramer to my list of favourite authors!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite May 4, 2012
Format:Paperback
Some followers of music pride themselves on seeking out and hearing world class acts before the band makes the big stage and achieves fame.

This tale leaves me wanting this new author to the scene to have multiple novels, all read, shared with dear friends, and lining the walls of my library. This is a tale filled with unexpected twists, blended with beautiful and sometimes cruel imagery, all melded together in a story line that makes the book almost impossible to put down. The writing is far from unrefined. Rather it unfolds a captivating, provocative, and emotion stirring tale set in 14th Century France with incredibly vivid and biting clarity. Chapters are filled with zinger lines which stay with you long after the book is put aside, and a writing style which evokes emotion, genuine tears, smiles and... well... something beyond words at all - which is a hallmark of only the best of writers.

I can not wait to see the next story, and watch this rising star of a writer - all the while giggling that I saw the band before everyone knew how great they really are...

4.0 out of 5 stars Could Not Stop Thinking About This Gripping Story September 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Tomorrow...he would be dead."
From the Forward (sic) of "The Execution" by Sharon Cramer

okay...just shoot me, but when there's a spelling error on the very first line of a book (btw, it should be "Foreword"), it makes me wonder about the rest of the writing (i know--i should complain when i can't even capitalize proper nouns, right?--LOL I'm soooo improper...but, I digress). anyway, i forgot about that error once I began reading and Cramer drew me into her story.

twins, separated and sent to families at opposite poles of privilege. like any story where one becomes the mercenary and one becomes a priest (evil and good--love and hate), D'ata and Ravan finally meet when the priest comes to visit the prisoner that is to be executed. D'Ata remembers his own torment and fate on this night and realizes his own redemption's at stake when his sins are laid before his eyes. Cramer's characters are believable, but there's just such sadness that at times it seems they know no other emotion.

most of the setting in this book is via flashback and for this story, that was not a problem; however, I did find it a little problematic trying to keep up with all of them. and there was one or two places where i thought maybe there was a gap in history? I'm still not sure it was not intentional and written that way because where it seemed gaps were present, Cramer inserted scenes of violence. and, the villains were sadistic...but, I kept reminding myself of the time period when the story took place--14th century France.

Cramer was able to show (not tell) how each twin's specific environment played in their social development as individuals.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly researched July 3, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am shocked at the number of people who are writing glowing reviews for this book. The writing style is adequate and the plot line interesting, but the author's utter disregard for even the most basic facts of the time period left me wondering why she would have chosen it.
This book is set mostly in the 1340's - the depths of the Black Plague epidemic. In a time when baptisms nor marriages were recorded, the author includes reams of 'paperwork' on horse lines; tea is 250+ years from being introduced to Europe yet little peasant girls 'play at tea'; poor serfs wear silk stockings, are literate with access to an endless supply of manuscripts and have glass windows in their hovels; books by authors yet to be born are mentioned; it is the epicenter of the Black Plague yet everyone has enough to eat and are seemingly unaffected by the complete collapse of society around them - the list goes on and on.
Fans of historical fiction will not be impressed by inaccuracies that could have been quickly righted with a simple Google search.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Story December 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The Execution is the story of two brothers, separated while very young, who meet under extreme circumstances. One is a priest come to take the confession of his brother, a convicted murderer. They tell each other their stories, which are presented in an interlaced fashion. The transitions from one story to another and from present to past are well done. I lack the expertise to judge the authenticity of the historical detail. The characters are psychologically authentic, which matters more to me as a reader.

The novel would have received five stars from me except for the unevenness of the prose. Some parts are polished, but others are a bit rough. In the end, the story is strong enough to overcome this flaw.

I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

More About the Author

Sharon Cramer is an aspiring time-traveler, alien princess, and master painter of halloween faces. In the meantime, she writes from a dank, dark cave, somewhere in Washington State. She's just released the first in a sci-Fi fantasy series called THE CERULEAN STAR, and has a breakthrough novel, beloved by an amazingly loyal following, called THE EXECUTION. Movie coming soon! (Check out Book Video!)

When not planning historical ruin and perfectly crushed hearts, Sharon can be found wandering somewhere in obscure Eastern Washington, talking to herself. Driven by sleeplessness and a seemingly endless draw to the keyboard (and the occasional extra strong "special" coffee) she is inspired by unorthodox friends and extreme weather. Mother to three sons, a nerd horse, a bad cat, and eleven fish (who all have names) she is married to a man who surely has won the Nobel Prize for Extreme Tolerance.
