The moment I opened the ebook, I took to the layout. Having read many self published works, I can tell when an author has put time and effort into making their work as sharp and clean as possible for publishing, and the authors of this book definitely took the time to perfect it's look. This enhanced the story for me, as it wasn't distracting. Inviting, without shoving the fact that it was awesome in my face. I like that.
But looks do not make a book, and I am all too aware of this. The actual story held my interest captive in it's palm, refusing to let me go. I went from saying "I'll read one chapter," to "one more," and then half, and before I knew it I had reached the end, and it was 2am. What?
I won't lie and say the book presents teenage life in a new way. Some parts such as the nerdy girl crushing hard on the most popular boy in school, are basic and made me roll my eyes. But the thing is, the way it's presented, it made me not care. Garrett Robinson and Z.C.Bolger managed to take character types I was all too familiar with--nerdy girl and jocks, goth kid, the bad boy, comic book nerd, shy girl, track star--and make me not care that I'd read about them before. Made me stay interested. And for that I say I'm impressed, because if I don't like a book, I stop. No questions, and few chances. I kept going. And going. And I'm moving on to the next episode.
The fantasy elements and humor really kept this book fresh. They are what set it apart. It was hilarious to watch the different reactions from the characters, and the fantasy world didn't seem unbelievable or static. I could picture things in my mind like a movie, and no explanation seemed "convenient." It all made sense, and was easy to swallow. More than a few times I found myself laughing out loud. And turning the page. And the end keeps you wanting more without being frustrated. I'm now a fan of both these authors. I want to know what happens next. On to the next episode for me, and I highly suggest you check this book out. It's a rare find.
The pace of this book was understandably hurried. An introductory work to a (promised) series, there is -- obviously -- need to quickly introduce characters, situations, history and worlds. The last 20 pages of this book showed the authors can adroitly change gears, and bring a laser focus on a single moment, and showed that the pulp will be shed.
The writing was extremely accessible. For a joint effort, the narrative voice was clear and straightforward, and very easy to follow. I enjoyed the main character's clear-minded voice throughout.
I think the characters will expand nicely, and I look forward to seeing their interactions as a group and with one another as the story continues, I think they've got a very interesting cast of complementary roles and personalities.
I really enjoyed reading this, I would strongly recommend it to anyone interested in a relatively short, fast read. It is a series that has immense potential, and I look forward to seeing what comes next.
Teens enter another realm to protect our world from the forces of darkness.
If you like action; yep, its there. If you want danger; yup, check. If you like a cross between the real world and a mystical realm of high fantasy; yep, it's there also.
This book is also accessible to those 11 and up. Perfect for the younger escapist reader who wants high action without exposure to the seedier sides of life.
I look forward to more of this series.
4.5 out of 5 stars.
