That said, the editing is bad - really, really bad and it did affect my enjoyment of an otherwise stellar read. Even though I want to read more, I would truly prefer to read more that had been properly edited. I usually ignore punctuation and incomplete sentences since I can usually see what the author is trying to say. If there were punctuation errors - I didn't see them. Sentence structure was atrocious (almost one sentence in every paragraph) and I would have to stop to see if I could figure out what was actually being said. I usually could, but not always. Verb case and pronoun gender were haphazard at best. Words were used that were variations of the words that should have been used - as in balls for eyeballs, travels for travelers and many, many more - although by the time I was finished, I was pretty automatically substituting words while I read. Some I simply skipped because I had no clue what was being said.
I still gave this book 4 stars because the author is truly talented although I hope that she will give serious thought to having her writing edited.
Author Linda Thackeray brings us the story of Peter. Peter is brought to a sanctuary when he is just a baby and raised solely by his Uncle Cy for many years. One day Uncle Cy tells Peter that he is ill and he is going to die. Peter, just 10 years old and knowing no one else his whole life suffers tremendously at this news. But there is more suffering lying in wait for Peter. Soon his entire life will be disrupted and he will have to make the choice to leave the only home he has ever known and set out to discover who he really is. Here Peter meets with extraordinary challenges and discovers his true mission in life.
Author Linda Thackeray draws us deep into her world with vivid imagery, fully developed characters, and a naturally flowing dialogue. It is fascinating to see the life of Peter. His adventures, challenges and triumphs make for a gripping and entertaining read. This is a story of friendship, courage, love, loss, suspense, mystery, pain, revelation and hope. I highly recommend it!
While the novel was certain to get a well deserved five stars I was totally derailed upon it's closing paragraphs and I admit I wondered if I had a corrupt download because there was still so much I expected to read within this first volume that was referenced earlier on and after reading the epilogue and putting my kindle down I was quite dumbfounded as to why the story ended where it did.Read more ›

The plot of the story is great. Unfortunately, the book is extremely difficult to read and comprehend due to the oversight in punctuation and spelling.Published 21 months ago by Eli
This is an excellent book combining a solid base of Sci-Fi with a taste of Fantasy. It is a good length book which holds one captive for its entirety. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Graeme
