I think it's clear right from the start that this is the author's first work, but that doesn't mean the same thing as 'badly written.' one of the things i enjoyed, aside form the story and it's telling, was following along and watching and feeling a new writer discover himself as a writer and finding his voice during the story.
i'm one of those readers who, if they enjoy the book, will read and re-read it many times. this one is already on my ' will read again' list.
the ending leaves the strong possibility for a continuation of the story, but finishes things off well enough so the reader isn't left unsatisfied.
the characters are solid, and compliment each other well - i look forward to a possible 2nd book so i can watch them evolve even further.
All in all, i was very pleased with this book.
Robert has been doing technical writing for years so on his initial foray into fantasy so one might expect it to be techie or stilted. With that in mind it was easy to criticize the occasional typo or overused, favorite turn of phrase.
Before long though, the characters will draw you in. They can be impulsive and impetuous but that adds to the story. They are also intelligent and the plot is of magic and mayhem with a sprinkling of romance salted within.
A stranger comes visiting a family in the boonies of a fairy tale forest, bringing shocking truths to a young woman who is destined for greatness. For three digital dollars it is well worth the read.
I was surprised.
Although things start off slow, Rob's passion for writing shows. It was surprising to see someone grow so much as an author in such a small span of time. This book is easy to read, and will pull you in once the plot starts to ramp up. There are splashes of philosophy and spirituality in this book that are very interesting, and the way magic works is rather different from the usual fantasy affair. I would recommend this novel for the Young Adult demographic especially.
This was a great debut effort, and I'm sure future novels will only be better.
Based on life experience in an imaginary world, the book employs an array of symbolism and psychological levels. While allowing the reader to delve into a better understanding of his own experiences and contemplate the nature of his daily associates and companions, the setting in an alternate world allows the author to guide the reader somewhat with explanations for phenomenon called by other names in the other world experience.
An excellent ambassador for the genre, those more comfortable initially reading, for example, a Danielle Steele modern romance, will find a superb introduction to the science fiction/fantasy category. The twists on romance and action provided in the jewel toned mystical delights of this saga still contain enough unvarnished harsh reality to keep lessons acquired in this fantasy realm grounded in survival experiences. Do not forget your thinking cap, but be prepared to enjoy a multifaceted journey of awakening innocence.
I look forward to more books by Mr. Oliver. Please keep writing so I can keep reading.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to relax with a good book!
I give this author a five-star review and two thumbs up for writing such an enthralling story line. I am looking forward to seeing what happens in the sequel.
