And for me, Immortal Shadow is such a book. It’s a well crafted sci-fi fantasy that will draw you in from the opening page. And, I would imagine that fans of this genre will love sinking their teeth into this one!
This is a dark tale that is not for the faint hearted. It’s a story about an alien dictator, who rules with an iron fist, and his eventual downfall. He mercilessly builds his empire to be superior to all the other ‘Shadic’ planets. But this isn’t enough for him as he dreams of becoming one of the fabled Immortal Rulers, regardless of the cost. However, his authority is challenged when resistance emerges from the most improbable of places; a teenager from planet Earth.
This is my first time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed. This short read had every element a good story should have. An exciting plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well illustrated scenes that really make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that's something I really look for in a good book.
This captivating and commendable work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flows from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional skill when it comes to storytelling. There are twists and turns in this page turner that will take the reader on a mesmerizing and alluring journey!
It’s one of those stories that come along once in awhile that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader!
I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Anderson Atlas in the future. I would definitely recommend this book. Five stars from me.
Immortal Shadow by Anderson Atlas is the third book in the Heroes of Distant Planets series. It contains a lot of action that will appeal to young readers—although, some of the violence is quite intense. It was an interesting story, albeit somewhat predictable.
I give it three and a half stars.
BY: ANDERSON ATLAS
Jibbawk, is a 9-foot tall vulture-like creature called a Shadic with red eyes and a long beak whose body is covered in poisonous (porcupine-like) quills was born a slave. When he bests dozens of other Shadics through a test of three trials he becomes the ruler of a new planet, Lan Darr. Once settled into his new regime, Jibbawk discovers one of his new subjects is a human boy who stumbled into a wormhole that brings him to Lan Darr. The boy is fascinating to Jibbawk who become enamored with all Earthly things—electricity, weapons, farming, architecture and more. He and the boy begin traveling between the two worlds to bring to Lan Darr all those things that will make Jibbawk’s world much more interesting. His travels and his new fascinations begin to bring chaos to his kingdom.
This story is, without doubt, bizarre. And yet, it’s also a fun read.
Anderson Atlas’ imagination is vivid and exciting. I’ve never read anything like this before. That’s a good thing. It is a unique story with creative and unusual characters. I appreciated the author’s ability to draw for me his creations from the different alien species to the worlds they inhabit.
The plot is fun. Jibbawk’s drive to create a new Earth on Lan Darr is amusing. If only he knew what trouble he was in for trying to imitate our flawed world!
Jibbawk is vicious and violent. He kills with impunity and rules with fear. THIS is what causes in eventual downfall. You, the reader, just can’t help but hate him!
It’s not Lord of the Rings. The writing is sometimes clipped and sparse. No flowery descriptions or background needed. But, it’s a quick, fun read that will entertain you for a few hours. I just discovered that Immortal Shadow is the third book in a series. Obviously, since I didn't know that before, it could certainly be a stand-alone story.
I would recommend it to anyone looking for a little light entertainment.
