My god am I pleased with it so far. I'm about 70% done with it and am thinking of a sequel already.
This guy is on par with a john Saul and could possibly be the next Stephen king.
I knocked it down a star for some editing issues and character issues.
First, I am no editor, so the typo problems are very obvious and need to be fixed. Words are missing in some sentences, the wrong word is used, and I came across a few sentences so garbled I had to stop and try to figure out what the author was attempting to say. When typos stop you and pull you out of the story, then you have issues. Mistakes are to be expected, writing is a messy process... just this book could use one more final clean-up editing.
Second, the character of "The Skipster" drives me nuts. He is boarish, not clever or impressive. His third person thinking about himself and how awesome he is at everything is just annoying. Who cares? I was so disappointed he made it through the book alive, frankly. And now it looks like he would be in the next book too. Not sure I want to read about "The Skipster" anymore. I can see that maybe Skip is meant to be a bit of a foil to Gavin's over-humble sniveling, but it is a little too much sometimes.
Plus, I was so bothered that a big part of the story was Donovan and his tracking of Deos in anger and vengeance waiting for his chance to strike at "The Whisperer"... and then he just lurks in the dark and does nothing??? It almost ruined the whole end scene for me as I keep wondering "where i the hell is Donovan?".
But now I am on a hook...Read more ›
The biggest problem for me was the severe need for editing/proofreading. I am always surprised when a commercial piece of literature contains simple typos like repeated, missing, or extra words. There were also a couple of continuity errors that a good editor would have caught. I would not bring up these errors, but there were just a few too many to overlook, and they stopped the flow of the story for me.
Bottom line, I would recommend this book if you like fantasy, dragons, and sword fights, but the book could be much better with good editing.
I don't usually like horror/urban/fantasy blends, but this story is one to suck you in with teeth, claws, and a relentless grip on your imagination. A few minor errors in the writing, point-of-view shifts that are unclear, and some secondary/tertiary characters from Rolling Creek disappear without further mention, but the book is highly readable. I definitely recommend it for teens and adults who like swords, magic, monsters, shoot-outs, and smart-a$$es.
The story fell into place and then set the hook in me! It turns out I couldn't put the danm book down. Now I can't wait until the next one in the series comes out!
This story is not your typicall Fantasy story. It takes place in our time and place but brings the "cross over world" to you. Mr. Vera did an Outstanding way of building his 2 worlds up! How he explained his ideas of how Magic "works" was quite refreshing. I personnely thought this was a way a Professor would lay out the "rules of Magic" of I was sitting in his class room.
Oh, and Mr. Vera, You need to get the next one out Real Soon...... Please!
