Book Description

In the Golden Days of the world, every city was a shining beacon of beauty and wonder. But then the Great War came, and all that was golden turned to dust. Out of the ashes rose a mystical group of protectors—the Rezernaan. They restored order and beauty wherever they could. But now a terrible threat from within threatens everything they have built, and only the youngest member of their ranks can prevent disaster. His name is Falki.

The Rezernaan and the people they protect live on a tiny group of idyllic islands that were miraculously spared from the chaos of war. The first pilgrims arrived centuries ago, and found a race of people called the Panotti already there. The Panotti are small in stature, short in lifespan, and fiercely devoted to nature. Falki is their most famous son, and his skill with Rezernaan abilities is legendary. But there are others even more powerful than he.

When a malcontent senior Rezernaan named Vannekar suddenly begins to advocate a revival of the old ways that brought destruction and despair, Falki is chosen to lead a covert mission to undermine Vannekar’s efforts. To complete his task, Falki recruits a skilled but contentious crew of specialists - twin rogues, an exiled murderer, an heir to an empire, and a strange man from his own past.

Falki will use all his wits and abilities to foil Vannekar’s plans for revolution, but his foe will not go down without a fight. Vannekar is cunning, strong, and convinced that the Rezernaan must change, or die.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Entertaining Story January 2, 2014
By Jeff
Format:Kindle Edition
I was kindly asked by the author to read "The Ninth Order" and provide an honest review. The author's book description best describes the premise of this urban fantasy story, so I will not regurgitate it here. Overall, I thought the story was pretty original and well written. The story sparked my interest from the beginning and kept me engaged throughout the book. The author kept the story moving and had a number of interesting characters besides the protagonist. I enjoyed contemplating the main moral dilemma that faced the inhabitants and being exposed to different characters, settings, magical/science devices and power, modes of transportation, animals, etc. Also, editing issues were very minor for the most part.

There were some distractions I noticed, but nothing in my opinion that seriously detracted from the book. Because this story involved numerous islands and the mainland, I think a map would have been beneficial to the reader. If there is a sequel to the book, I would suggest the author explain in more detail how the Rezernaas acquire/harness their power and what differentiates the different levels of order from one another (e.g, a sixth or seventh order from a ninth order). Without spoiling anything to the reader, it would have been nice for the author to get into more detail about how the Rezermark worked. What exactly did Ari find? How did the darkhouses actually do what they were intended to do? Basically, I think the author could have delved a bit more into the mechanics of the magic/science system of various things in a bit more detail.

Spoiler Alert (Just in case)

Somethings I noticed lacked a bit in realism including there being no record or map at all to any outsiders that the islands ever existed.

Wizardry after the fall of civilization.
I was never really sure who to root for. It will take the next book to make sure the right choice was made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story line with likable characters. May 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ramsey Isler is a gifted author who has a flair for simple yet authentic descriptions. In the 9th order he portrays a regressed futuristic society controlled by a secretive group known as the Rezernaan who through deception and good intention keep there people hidden from the rest of the world. But as the world progresses they stay static one member in the hopes of protecting the islands future destroys the mechanism of this defense. Did he go to far? Where his intentions really noble? You have to read to find out but I promise you wont be disappointed in this book.

Pros:
Well written
Great story telling.
Likable characters (I especially like the twins)

Just so you know:
Way to many paragraphs at first split up my attention and made it a little harder to get into but once I did I was hooked

Disclaimer:
I was offered this book for free in return for an honest review. I decided to pay for it instead.

I found this book great and worth every penny I spent on it (all 99). And highly recommend you give it a read.
