From the Author

Science fiction is about possible realities. In my stories about the Tsaeb, I assume that higher intelligence appeared early in the evolution of life on Earth.  Science has not explained the origin of intelligence.  Thus, there is no explanation for the lack of advanced intelligence in higher organisms such as rabbits, sparrows, and puffer fish. Intelligence could have appeared 500 million years ago when evolution produced the first complex creatures.  As intelligence evolved, wouldn't the age old enemies of peace--desire, anger, fear, and pride--have caused wars between intelligent species. With many intelligent species competing for the Earth's resources, wouldn't the wars have spread across the planet?  With intelligence evolving and expanding, wouldn't the wars have grown like fire blown by a hard wind?  How could they ever be stopped, and by whom?

I don't like fantasy and when I received this book for review I was going to turn it down, but the cover was interesting. Is that an elderly man overlooking Earth? He's a warrior, I got that from the title, so I would expect a fantasy about warring people, maybe over a kingdom or something. The title is plain: Corr Syl the Warrior and seemed childish in its simplicity. The blurb introduces me to the main character, Corr Syl, who is a young warrior signed to investigate the Danog group who is coming into their district. It isn't until I begin reading the sample that I realise this could be a very powerful book... and its main character is a rabbit.

Watership Down it ain't. It's a futuristic story with the humans (Danog) and intelligently evolved animals who call themselves Tsaeb (beast spelled backwards) and they all live together in semi cooperation. After the strong prologue the first chapter was a little confusing, I didn't understand whether I'd been reading about a battle or a dream that Syl had. It also had a lot of characters. And I have to admit I did struggle with the sample and put the book down several times, but the original concept of evolved animals (humans came from primates, so why not a human type person evolving from rabbits, or other animals?) made me pick it up and persevere. And I'm glad I did. I thought I was reading a child's book until I got to part one and then something sinister began to take place (Dean Koontz took over the writing - or so it seemed!), the writing and storyline really heated up!

The Tsaeb stopped becoming 'silly little animals' and became REAL people. People I could relate to and like. In part one a spider called Lactella was able to control a Danog by sinking its fangs into the flesh and injecting venom.

This is a very well written and entertaining read. It is a fun, light read that you find yourself pulled further and further into. It is a unique story that you get caught up in. Rogers takes his time telling this story, filling his audience in on the history of the land and characters. This novel is also quite geographically diverse. Rogers uses his way with words to describe this land in a manner that you can see it in your mind's eye.

Rogers has a large, well developed cast of very diverse characters that stay clear and well defined throughout the novel. Also, even though he has a large number of characters, no one gets bumped to the wayside as the story progresses. I appreciate the fact that this cast has characters of all ages. Rogers doesn't keep himself to any particular age range. Everyone has a chance to prove themselves in this novel.

Overall, this unique novel is fun for all ages. It hooks you from the beginning, pulling you through this fun tale that will leave you with a smile.

Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

There is really nothing more you can ask of a story than is found here in Corr Syl the Warrior. The pace is brisk and keeps you engaged, the characters are so believable that Lactella gives me the creeps long after I've finished, and I'll be glad to find what Corr and Rhya are up against in the promised sequel. I really appreciate the added feature of information about geography and plant and animal life. My copy was complimentary, but in no way does that bias my impression of Rogers' tale. I found the coin-flip situation of his image of nature where mankind isn't kingpin so refreshing!

I received a copy of this book for honest review. 'Corr Syl The Warrior' is a story of an impending war and one warriors quest to prevent this.

This was a really unusual read! For one thing the Tsaeb are descended from animals which I was not expecting from simply reading the synopsis. I found it took me a while to get into it as I was thrown by this revelation and then uncertain about the tone being set. I wasn't sure what age-range it was aimed at as it felt like a strange choice of characters for an adult novel yet the way it was written seemed a bit complex and serious for children.

Part two was where the book really captured my interest with a very interesting and creative choice of villain. I was hooked at this point and the story started to fall into place for me. I started to notice a hint of humour in places and I found myself not wanting to put the book down. It's not just an adventure story either, there are serious environmental issues highlighted with the animals pointing them out to the oblivious humans.

Overall this was an enjoyable read, and quite thought-provoking in places. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys fantasy and has an interest in environmental issues.

This book is a really nice short read. It has a nice, creative premise that talks about how much damage we are doing to the earth. It has cool action scenes and a few interesting side plots to go along with it. There is nothing much that I can say about this book regarding flaws. It has a few of them, but for the most part, it is enjoyable and quite fair. It does its job to send an ecological message across well. I really like how the writer makes an effort to explain the science and the way the Tsaeb work as a society in a way that makes logical sense. I appreciate it very much and it is one of the things that makes this book interesting and it is a great quality in any writer to be able to create your own logic. The writing style is fair, apart from a few typos, but I didn't mind. Like I said, there were a few minor problems I encountered. I wasn't very satisfied with the end to Allon and Lactella's side plots. We never found out what happened to Lactella in the end and I thought that the climax with Allon just could have been something more. Other than that, everything else is great. I really enjoyed this book and I hope other readers will too. It is a light read really worth checking out.
