I really enjoyed reading about the world that Dylan Peters conjured. It is interesting, fascinating and at the same time it really resembles our own world, especially the part about Edgar. I was seeing our own world, a bit covered, but nevertheless it was the same world that we live in. the concept of Holy and Great Tyrant is very interesting. And every time I read about it, I had this feeling that the author wanted to tell us, that sometimes what we believe in, might not be the truth; and that the winners do really write the history, whether they are good or evil.
All characters are very well developed and each of them has a unique feel about them. I liked Evercloud as a character and as a person. Sometimes it felt as if he was too unreal. I mean, sometimes he was too good. He didn’t give off the human vibe. It was as if he wasn’t tainted. But then again bears not humans raised him, surely, he wouldn’t know of human bad traits. However, he’s a great character and quite refreshing. Though it cracked me up when Evercloud fell in love with Iolana at first sight. The book unravels a lot, but at the same time even more secrets come to life. And at the ending of the first book, you just wished you had the next book right now, so you could dive into it right now. The intrigue with Ancients and the Great Tyrant is still high and you just want to know faster what is going to happen next.
Did I perk your interest? I hope I did, because this book is amazing with its own myths, history and a lot of adventures. In the beginning it might be hard to get the whole bear thing going into the mind, but the more you read the more interesting it becomes. I hope you’ll be adding this book to your reading list right now and getting your copy now! Enjoy it to its fullest
Usually, epic fantasy depicts great good battling great evil against almost insurmountable odds, but that isn't strictly the case with Everflame. In the beginning battle lines seem clear, but as the book progresses you realize that there is no clear cut good or evil; each "side" is painted in shades of grey and readers are left wondering just who to root for.
Characters are very well developed, Peters gives each a depth that is reflective of the human condition. For example, Eveneye displays great courage and conviction but later suffers from self-doubt and weakness. There is a strong message of personal responsibility through out, but at the same time Peters drives home the fact that no man is an island...we need support from those who love us to become all we have the potential to be.
To qualify why I only gave 4 stars instead of 5, I do not appreciate abrupt cliffhanger endings. I loved this book and would have purchased the second in the series without the teaser ending. I personally prefer a bit more resolution at the end of an installment of a series. I do have to note that Peters handled the ending of Everflame 2: The Burning Man in a much more satisfactory manner.
For me, the best measure of a book is how much I miss the characters after finishing and after finishing the second book in this series I miss them all. The 3rd book isn't even available but I feel as if I am missing something...like life is going on in their world but I am not fortunate enough to travel with my friends. I highly recommend Everflame and the follow up book, Everflame 2.
This book started with the simple tale of an unwanted child raised by unlikely parents, but turned into a page turned that kept me wanting more.
The culture and history of the bear nation is amazingly detailed, with beliefs and needs that are very believable. And the characters that come out of that worldbuilding made me want to see their world with my own eyes.
And then the story went beyond the boundaries of the bears, and became some th ibg truly amazing.
Bring on the second book...

The characters are believable and the plot held my attention. The author has created a realistic world and the descriptive sections paint the picture well without losing the pace of the story. The action and lighter moments are well balanced.
This is the first part of four and the give away is clearly to make you buy the rest.
That's fine by me.
77p for the second book will be a bargain I am absolutely sure.
Worth a look.
