I was recently introduced to a young god named Bernie…he lives in Godtown and graduated from god school. Bernie started working at the Business and won a VERY prestigious award for creating the most godlike peoples…
Yes I said created…
It’s almost like they make art and it’s real. You can even eat the food; grown on a planet; inside a universe; made by a god at the business…Said universe sold to the local quid pepper vendor…Who will demand perfect production for the 1000 years on his warranty but something went horribly wrong!
And that is how Bernie met the wizards and you have to read the book to get insight for the how, when, where and so forth ways that Bernie, his girlfriend Suzy and friend Lennie help the local quid farmers. War and mayhem have been let loose and Bernie works tirelessly to save the quid farmers!
Along the way you will meet Shemal-Bernie’s boss who wants to kill off the Quid Farmers and start all over. You will meet Bernie’s Dad. I didn’t like him at all. You will meet Claudius a very huge ancient god (they don’t die you know and never stop growing!) You’ll also meet several cliquey clingy girls who decide to chase Bernie after he won the award. Suzy does not like this at all!
It’s a great book and so are the others Mr. Steve Lebel has shared with us. I was privileged to be a beta reader on this book; Bernie and the Wizards! The first draft was a good read…The final result is marvelous…treat yourself!
For many of the gods, when the sentient races they populate their universes with cause problem, they just blink them out of existence and start over. And why not, they're not gods. But Bernie thinks differently. His ethics will be pushed to the breaking point on this world where a group of locals has gone bandits, attacking their fellows and disrupting the harvest of the prized pepper plants the gods crave.
If he can't convince the rogue bandits to stop killing their own people, he may have to do the unthinkable. Can he find away to navigate the religion and politics of the sentient people to bring about a peaceful solution, or will he be forced to end the lives of hundreds maybe even thousands.
Because every hour he wasts is costing the company money.
This series is so much fun to read. While written for a young adult audience, it tackles a lot of great themes from ethics to handling fame to sticking to what you feel is right. Bernie and the other characters will have to find away to solve problems not through violence of force, but by thinking and negotiations. LeBel keeps you reading, eager to find out what happens next in this creative universe.
I can't wait to see what he does with this series next. (And I was very happy a certain relationship progressed).
The Universe Builders: Bernie and the Wizards is a continuation of Bernie’s journey of being a young god; however, all of the stories can be read independently without confusion. I found the book engrossing from the start, and I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen to the characters. The Universe Builders: Bernie and the Wizards is a fun combination of Medieval-type fantasy and more modern fantasy. The world of the Radolins is a place with only ancient technology, while Bernie’s world is a world of gods who create universes but are not all-powerful. Bernie has been trained to view the worlds the gods create as businesses. When something goes wrong on a world, the gods will frequently wipe out the existing races and start over. Bernie, however, is much too compassionate to do that. Instead, he interacts with the worlds and their people in order to fix the problems, which sets him apart as a world builder. I loved Bernie from the beginning because of his compassion for the people the gods create, and because he takes the time to enter their world and become a part of it in order to fix the problem. Bernie’s dad is an incredibly selfish person, and he was a character that I loved to hate. The romance between Bernie and Suzie is sweet and added to my enjoyment of the book. It’s a light-hearted fantasy novel with characters I easily fell in love with. LeBel has created a world that’s fun to get lost in. I highly recommend reading The Universe Builders: Bernie and the Wizards.
