PRAISE FOR: THE CHRONICLES OF SOONE
"...an intense, action packed sci-fi story with a heart. A gripping story, not to be missed!"—Jeremy Robinson, Bestselling Author of: PULSE, INSTINCT & BENEATH
“Sparks of Creative Genius: Somers' strength is plotting. No bog down scenes here. It just keeps amping. Wait until you meet the cyborg assasin Vale. He alone adds a rogue suspense mechanism worth the price of admission. The Vorn, the Barudii, the transdimensional rift--all very cool elements. A Story Worth Hearing!”—Wayne Thomas Batson, Bestselling Author of: The Door Within Trilogy, Isle of Fire & The Berinfell Prophecies
“Everything an action sci-fi fan could ask for: Full of battle. From the opening scene I was captivated. Woven into the action are moral dilemmas and tragedy, coupled with a unique perspective on the battle between good and evil. An excellent read.”—Craig Alexander, Author of: The Nineveh Project & The Assassi
James Somers has written another great book for all ages, proving that a book doesn't need graphic sex or vulgarity to be good! It is a fast read, one that would be perfect for younger readers/teens with the right amount of fantasy and imagination without getting dragged out. A young boy, who is used to being the one picked on, is knocked unconscious by bullies, in his dreams he finds he has "powers" beyond the normal and is thrown into a new world where he is important to those around him. These dream friends accept him, respect him and encourage him. A great story for anyone who has ever felt "awkward" in their own skin.
In James Somers entertaining book "a world within" a young man named Daniel suddenly finds himself in another world after he is attacked by some bullies from his school and hits his head. In this entertaining easy to read story Daniel meets up with a group of unusual friends as he is being attacked By Spider elves. The story follows Daniel's progress through a sword and sorcery type of story with a strong religious undertone.
I would advise this book to young adults, fans of fantasy, sword and sorcery buffs, and there are some dragons in there too. The language is appropriate for young people as there is no cursing or sexuality. It does of course contain a fair amount or the usual sword and sorcery type of violence. I found the story a bit short. This may be because it is directed at a young adult reading level, or because it is the first of a series. As an adult I still enjoyed reading the story although at times events were a bit to easy to guess at.
The story reads like a Terry Brooks novel, which I mean in a good way. I will be getting the next book when available. ...Did I mention it has Dragons...
Although the book kept me entertained most of the time the plot was very obvious and I found that a little frustrating as the story unfolded slowly and I already knew what was going to happen. The story and writing are a little too simplistic. I have read other teen books with more depth and though it was enough to keep me reading till the end, it isnt enough for me to continue the series.
Had a hard time putting this one down. Started reading it Saturday. Stayed up way too late trying to finish it. Couldn't do it. Went to church the next day. Long day at church, as I'm a pastor. Finished reading it during the Super Bowl! Let me tell ya...the Super Bowl was an exciting game (didn't get resolved until the last few seconds), but this book was even better than that! I had to finish it! My only complaint is..."Where's the sequel???!"
I found misspellings, poor grammar and a tedious story, to be totally honest. On the first page the author, or person transcribing the text, used the word "plane" when the word "plain" was correct. Short choppy sentences. Couldn't finish it. Glad it was free.
I listened to this in audio format via audible.com. Any time I can get a book in audio, I do so for better emotions, pronunciation, accents etc... A good story for the young readers (YA) specially the boys would enjoy this book! With action, adventure, sci & paranormal in it, even dragons! Quite enjoyable. The author & the narrator did a great job in the delivery of this tale!
