"... a masterfully crafted epic fantasy about the ages old struggle between good and evil." ---- Carol Marrs Phipps, author of Elf Killers

From the Author
I've done lots of things. I've gotten degrees and taken advanced courses in various fields: physics, engineering, religious studies, history. I've taught college courses, been a physicist, a licensed professional engineer, and I've investigated some of the most complex and high profile engineering disasters of the last twenty years. I've even testified as a forensic engineering expert before the supreme court of the State of New York. After reading the battle scenes in my books, some of my readers have asked me whether I also used to be a spy or a Special Forces operative. I can't comment on that, I tell them. My non-fiction work has been read around the world. I write some of that every day, and I still enjoy it. But all my life, for fun, I've written fantasy stories. I started writing them before I did any of the things I mentioned above, and I'll probably keep writing them for as long as I'm around. A few years ago, I decided to make a business out of it and get them published so others can read them too. I hope that you'll give my books a read.
Writing style was excellent, now the author just needs to work on being original in his ideas. Seemed like nothing more than taking ideas and barely changing them to put them in. I could trace almost everything back to games, and books I have already read. Weapons and backstory from Dante's Inferno game. Characters and imagery from Diablo. Story ideas from all kinds of places, even the bible. Has the premise to be a great author if handed original ideas to write about. This was an easily thrown together compilation of mediocrity.
mr. thater, where have you been all my reading life? i have long ago paused my reading of fantasy books after "the children of hurin" because nobody seems to write that good a story anymore.... until now. your story riveted me. i am starting volume 2. and i can't wait to read the rest of Angle Theta. his immortality and prowess remind me of Thranduil. i want to see this in a movie one day.
Being laid off for four months, the resultant financial crisis has taken away almost all my pleasurable activities. Thanks to Amazon and the participating authors of Kindle's free books program, I am still able to enjoy reading. I am a voracious reader and have therefore read many of these books and I am pleased to say that this selection was the best of them all. I am praying for the day I once again obtain employment and become financially able to purchase the rest of this series.
I was pleasantly surprised, as I read more and more into these Stories, how Glenn G. Thater combined Norse Viking lore along with Factual Places and Events from Stories I grew up with... Well done Mr. Thater.
Three Book Bundle - extremely detailed descriptions bog down the story, making it a slow read and the overuse of the character's favorite cuss word "dagnabbit" makes them sound like a bunch of hillbillies. Other terms such as Mr. Know it All, Mr. Fancy Pants, and lazy bugger make the characters sound like adolescents in a school yard.
Initially slow moving and wordy. An okay read if you're into complicated associations and long-winded expositions. Gets to be better late in the trilogy but will leave you hanging. I am not going to bother with the rest of the series even though the trend is towards improvement.
