The author created a new and unique twist of our mystical ideologies. Very creative and interesting plot. I enjoyed this.

I got this book for free but after reading it, I'll pay full price for the next installment! It was exciting to read with not many errors (I haven't found any self published books that didn't have at least a few typos). I enjoyed the story and found the characters relateable. A great job for the author's first novel. I am looking forward to reading more!

If you took every myth & legend & all the religious books deemed holy and threw them in a blender, this book is what you would get. This author tries to accomodate everything: King Solomon, the Templars, the Cathars, the Book of Thoth, a Holy Roman Emperor, Dracula(!) and probably some I've forgotten already even though I finished the book yesterday. He has a reader in a parallel time reading about all these legends which are supposed to have something to do with her time.

This is just a mish-mash of events thrown together along with the requisite bad guys. It's also fairly boring - the author gives us a lot of detail about the reader's life including every single, tiny thing she experiences and it's enough to put you to sleep.

It's possible this is some kind of disguised christian religion since the Book of Thoth morphed into Logos (the word of god) by the end of the book.

This is not good literature and with all the impaling on poles of people going on, it was just too much for me. I will not be reading the second book.

I, too am attractedby the suspense here, but I doubt that I will be able to finish the book. My 9th graders would have their papers returned as unacceptable for the number of basic grammatical errors in this book. "should have went" (several times) REALLY?? This author needs an editor whose knowledge of spelling and grammar is a lot better. One can excuse some things as typos, but that is not the case here. The book has good ideas, but it is HORRIBLY written.

The Sinner King: Book of Fire was recommended to me by a friend. I was intrigued by her description: Page-turner, creative narration element...part history, part suspense. By Chapter 4, I didn't want to put the book down! I have never finished a book in 7 days - Nor have I ever wanted to reread a book immediately after completion. But I did with D.R. Crislip's The Sinner King! This book tumbled my curiosities and captivated my imagery - often leaving me to wonder how something so magnificent fell from one person's brain. Very thought-provoking, yet enjoyable as I sailed through the chapters wanting to know where we would find Rebecca next. Did I see somewhere that this is only Book 1?! Bring us Book 2, I'm ready!

The Sinner King is not a typical read for me. I tend to stick to the non-fiction world when it comes to books. The book was recommended to me so I thought I would give it a shot and was thoroughly impressed. The book is a very fast read because you always want to know what is going to happen to Rebecca. I found myself not being able to put the book down. There is great character development and much suspense builds in each chapter, which keeps the reader engaged. Hard to believe this is a first novel. I am looking forward to what the second book has to offer.

I read the reviews and synopsis before purchasing the Kindle edition and was not disappointed. This is a must read for anyone that enjoys science fiction and/or fantasy from a "1984" perspective. You want to check out the historical references but can't break away from the action to review the data. It took about two days to read; but, while waiting for the second book, it could be leisurely reread with equal enjoyment.

This was such a great book! I'm not usually a fan of Sci-Fi, but this book did not disappoint. I love the conspiracy theory sort of theme throughout and found myself reading well into the early morning hours. It is fast-paced and you find yourself wanting to keep reading to know what happens to Rebecca and what more the manuscript going to reveal. I can't wait for the second novel!!

Too many editorial errors. Some parts read as if the author used voice recognition instead of typing. The two color text and quoted journal reminded me of Michael Ende's Never Ending Story without delivering the same magic. Overall, an interesting concept that produces potential. I'm sure with more writing maturity, the author will continue to build an engrossing fable.

I found this book to be interesting; but quite complex toward the end. I'll be looking forward to the next book.
