The Deliverer: Book One in the Marenon Chronicles Paperback – March 9, 2012
From the Author
Ever since I could first string words together, I loved writing fiction. I would always take my stories to my parents and they would read them, giving me positive feedback. Now, I write for the masses, and am happy to see that I still get wonderful feedback from readers from all over the world. I aim to entertain and leave boring at the door with my fast-paced stories. I hope you continue to enjoy my books, as much as I enjoy writing them.

Things I liked: the idea for the story was one I hadn't encountered before. The worlds had interesting relationships. The baddies were plenty bad and dislike-able. There was ample action and adventure. It never dragged. There were no graphic sex scenes.
Things I think could be better: I found the writing style to be awkward, repetitive in phrasing, over-emphasized, sensational, without delivering subtle emotional tones or textural details. There was a lot of "telling" how a character thought or felt, without that character expressing it in actions or words. I felt the two male lead characters were very similar in how they were written (although their backstories and roles in the book are very different). I had to keep reminding myself which one of them I was reading.
The writing did not absorb me, and that is the main thing that's making me think very hard about whether I want to buy the next book in the series. Everyone likes different styles, though, so it's not to say that other readers won't like it.
I thought the majority of the characters were flat and 2 dimensional, they didn't seem like fully fleshed out "real" people. The female characters especially seemed to lack other than typical descriptions of "gorgeous". I also found it hard to understand the characters motivations, if they were even touched on. Otherwise I thought the characters actions/reactions felt forced and unreal. The plot felt like it dragged on at some point (ex: fight scenes dragged out) while other parts went flying by without enough explanation.
I made it through about 70% of this book over a 6 day period (I typically sit down to read a book in a matter of hours) hoping it would get better. Finally at about the 70% mark I gave up and started skimming through it to the end (and that's really because I wanted some form of payoff for me time).
Overall: 2 starts for it being an interesting idea for a novel that just didn't quite pay off for me.
Dialogue is crisp, characters throughout are fully developed, and the story line is rich and non- predictable. I am a reader that appreciates good descriptions of areas in which action takes place. However, Scenic descriptions were minimal.
The break at the end of Book 1 is not a cliff hanger, but rather a pause while we all catch our breath!
A solid 4 stars!
