About the Author

Scott lives in Colorado with his lovely wife and two children. A true renaissance man, he is an accomplished artist, mountaineer, snowboarder, home brewer and persnickety wine snob. He moved to heaven (a.k.a. Colorado) in the early 1980s from Michigan and has never looked back, although he misses the colors in the fall and being on a sailboat on a ‘real’ lake in the summer. His free time is currently occupied teaching his kids how to ride two wheelers, and how to fish. This year, he will brave the world of tent camping and force his kids to rough it, bugs, dirt, and all. He is an overachiever, has three engineering degrees including a master’s degree from Colorado School of Mines, and as a self-professed curmudgeon, criticizes code that software engineers design. In other words, he breaks things for a living. He has always enjoyed storytelling and writing. He hopes to escape cubeville before donuts become illegal, or he becomes an old fogey. Please help him.

I think the best thing that can be said after reading the first book of a new fantasy series is that a person can't wait until the next book comes out. I can't wait until Scott's next book comes out. Scott has created a very complex world with an interesting magical construct that is something I've never seen before. He also seems to have setup an interesting exploration of the limits of control, even for very capable people. I found the characters quite interesting and the story definitely had me wanting to know more. Thanks Scott, and hurry up with the next one.

First, I think this is a fantastic effort by an amateur writer and at the kindle price, it's a good deal (I would not pay the paperback price for it--though i'm guessing it's high because it's not mass produced). The story is fascinating and original (as far as my reference list goes) and i'm happy to have spent my four bucks helping scott escape from cubeville. I highly recommend and think you'll find the book enjoyable. I am reading the next book and eagerly await future chapters. The rest of my review is meant to be constructive criticism for the author and contains spoilers...i will tag in advance if you don't want to catch them.

I *almost* didn't read the book after i'd bought it and started. Up through the first chapter on Haagen (location 1346 in Kindle edition) I had pretty much given up...the plot wasn't really moving anywhere, and the prose was pretty amateurish and the characterization was off; for instance, wizards who are supposed to be roughly 1000 years old display attitudes and actions more commensurate with high school students--when they get frustrated they throw something against the wall..they yell at their friends when their friends don't agree with them etc. Maybe that's how the author intended them to be but it didn't match my expectations. There was a lot of prose that could have been removed. Almost the entire Haagen chapter (same location) is superfluous. I really don't care about Haagen's "well-chiseled" frame, or that his waist formed an "attractive V-shape". Maybe that was for the benefit of the female readers, but those particular descriptive phrases almost made me stop reading--they are trite and cliche. The use of named knots in the description of his work was also distracting and unnecessary.

I really hate that Amazon doesn't allow half-Star ratings. Since I did (eventually!) end up enjoying this book, I'm going to give it 4 stars instead of three because :
1. For a first novel, it was ambitiously long. I don't like books that are too short, especially the beginning one in a series.
2. It is appropriate for all age groups except perhaps the very young (some bloody descriptions were a little gory for a young one).
3. It had a good plot with some subtle hints and revelations to draw you in as the story progresses.
4. Interesting characters and creatures.
5. Lots of action.

Is it a full 4 or 5 Star book? Not for me. Does it or the following books have the potential to improve upwards to that status? Yes, I believe so. The tendency to get bogged down with too much unnecessary detail slowed up the reading for me. The stilted dialogue was a little strange for my taste--it was archaic in one sentence and contained current slang phrases in the next. "You think?", "I'm just saying", "Shut up!", "D--n straight", and "Bulls--t" just made me laugh and distracted me from the storyline. The book also needs further editing. (Speaking of editing, I had to edit my review, Amazon didn't like the quoted language...)

But even though I had serious doubts during the first part of this book, I really got interested in the characters and the plot. The writing needs some work, but the potential is there. I liked it enough that I will probably read the next book in order to see what happens next in this Fantasy world.

Like some other reviewers have mentioned, there are a few grammatical distractions and elements of earnest youthfulness in writing technique and style, but these issues shouldn't keep you from reading this first installment of Scott Muller's fantasy saga. It is filled with likable characters, action, adventure, plot twists and a world waiting to be discovered. If his writing sytle matures as the saga continues to unfold, I expect this series to be a thoroughly enjoyable read.

ARC for Review ~ This is such an amazing, fresh and mind-blowing read. I love the rich detail of the character backgound and world development. There are many storylines within and so descriptively detailed it makes me wonder where the next installment will take me..

I throughly enjoy the creative mind of Scott D Muller, and recommend this Dark/Epic Fantasy for Teen/YA and up!

5 out of 5 Hearts ~

Hi y'all Anne here I have had the immense pleasure to get to read Eyes Of The Keep by Scott Muller. This book is an amazing fantasy adventure to read. The story line is original and well plotted out with great detail, characters that grow on you, and creatures that will scare you. I really liked this book, the story is one of a kind from page one you know your going to go on a trip you won't soon forget. The authors tells a tale of realms of the world with mages, watchers, witches, demons and so much more, the plot is consistent through out the whole book the main characters have an objective and that is the base of the book. Meanwhile there are smaller stories unfolding in the back ground leaving room for lots more amazing stories. I loved the characters they all have this aged tough exterior but as the story unfolds you see that each mage has a past that has forced them to put up barriers and keep their feelings under wraps. The most unlikely of trios is picked to do what no others have done since the last great war they leave the protection of the Keep to seek out the source of great power that is roaming the realms. This book is so detailed even in an explosion that ends a life, the how and why and what after it was done is laid out there for you. The creatures are as original as the story I've never heard of anything like them and they are described to the point where you can smell the rot of their breath and feel panic of the people when the howls spread through the forest. The creatures of nightmares can only belong to the most powerful of evils, can the trio survive? Can the realms be repaired? Will all the lost people be found? I haven't read a fantasy of this magnitude since I picked up Lord Of The Rings. I highly recommend this book to any fantasy lover!Read more ›
