There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It was believable and logical and very descriptive. I could see every scene in my head as the battles raged. That doesn't happen very often. Reading the other reviews here, I found myself saying "Yeah, me too" so I won't repeat their comments. Just know that you can double any positive comment you heard. I read late into the night, and grabbed little minutes during the day. I truly could not put it down.
I can't wait. Steve, I hope you're writing like mad. I will pre-purchase your next one .... or two .... or three. :)
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!
The bad guy (not really a guy, but the Lord of some unknown Underworld) is both savage and highly intelligent, a kind of demi-god. But like the charismatic knights that are his sworn enemy, he is deprived of his full powers while trapped on earth, and as such is vulnerable to bullets and Samurai swords and the like, which leads to some intense and unpredictable action sequences that don't always go where you think they will. And there is yet another bad guy?/good guy? character whose race isn't really clear, who is kind of a wild card. Again, you learn little tidbits about who or what he is, but you are left wanting to know more, which I believe to be the author's intention.
To sum up, if you are a fan of what I'd say is "Dark Fantasy", I think you'll enjoy the ride here, and if not, it would be a great, if not completely conventional introduction to the genre. The book is ripe for a sequel or sequels, which I think MUST BE in the works. And it follows that golden rule of show biz- 'always leaving em wanting more', but at the same time has a satisfying, albeit cliff-hanger ending.
I love that there are so many low priced ebooks out there these days, and this will definitely be one of the series I follow.
when i read a book that really grabs my attention i find it hard to get into my next read as i'm still thinking about the book i've just read- drynn was such a book for me- it was almost 10 days before i could get into reading another book (unheard of for me). cannot wait for the sequel!!!
What a great read. I devoured this book in a couple days. Fast paced action and I love the characters. I will be honest though, the cover turned me off at first and if I had not run out of things to read I probably would not have even looked at it.
I recommend this book highly! give it a shot, I am sure pleased I did.
