Editorial Reviews

From the Author

People sometimes ask me which of my books is my favorite.  That's a hard question to answer.  The book that contains the most pieces of my soul, however, is this one.  With the modern-day setting coupled with dragons, magic, and machine-guns, RESURGENT SHADOWS is loaded with action, difficult social questions, and a plot twist that will be sure to leave you dying for the sequel.  It is very different from my other novel, SANDS, but just as enjoyable and even more of an emotional roller-coaster.
 
As with all books, if you enjoyed RESURGENT SHADOWS, please leave an honest review and then go tell your friends and family about it.  The best way to keep reading books you love from the authors you enjoy is to share it with others and encourage them to enjoy it as much as you do.

This is a story of two humans, chosen to be the champions of Dvergers, a dwarf,race that came to Earth when multiple dimensions clashed and opened up ourworld to invasion by dragon, Wizards, trolls, and other alien species. Eric was chosen by a hammer and Caleb received a bow and quiver of magical arrows. Both were imbued with superhuman powers by the weapons and found ways to overcome the berserker mentality that came over then in the heat of battle. They came to lead both the dvergers and humans. The story is well told, very difficult to put down, and enjoyable. I am looking forward to the next book.

One day life is grand. The very next day something unpredictable and unimaginable happens. What would you do if it were you? Would you stay and fight or would you hide? These are the questions the characters ask themselves as their adventures take shake shape. This is the first book in the Successive Harmony series.

There are several mystical creatures, but they have very real human characteristics. There are a few I would love to know. My favorite character is Sigvid. He reminds me of myself sometimes. He does not take any lip from anyone, but shows how he cares in a very subtle way. My favorite part of the book is when the baby white dragon was about to be born. Its dad went to find her rider. Cannot say what happens, but it is awesome. I actually laughed out loud when the Dvengers interacted with a flashlight. Sounds silly I know but it was funny. There were parts in the story where I could feel the pain from one of the main characters. At first it was a little confusing. There is a small backstory but some elements of what happened are missing until you read more of the book. I can honestly say I did not see the end of Chapter 2 coming. Once you think you have the story line where you think you know what will happen next, there is a twist. It flows wonderfully to keep you reading though.

This book reminds me of the Lord of the Rings and Resident Evil. If you like these types then you will enjoy this one. I would recommend this for young teens to adults. I kind of wish the ending was different but being a cliffhanger just makes me wish the second book was out. I cannot wait to see what the second book is like, if there is a second book.

Format: Paperback
I'm not sure how to describe this novel so I'll start with...I just couldn't put it down. The story line is both straight forward and at the same time complex. Unlike other reviewers I found the characters easily identifiable, for example I knew A & B belonged to the clans, H & I belonged to the outcasts, and X, Y & Z belonged to the roterralar. However there were those whose group was unlisted, or unclear, like Elyana, Briane, Edriean, Beryl, the Rahuli, and the Orinai.
So, long and short...the story revolves around Lhaurel, clan then roterralar, and her journey to become what she is meant to be. Along the way we encounter Gavin who is fulfilling the quest of his people to climb the walls of the Oasis, Kaiden who is revenging the death of his father, and Taren's quest to become ruler of all the clans.
Much is left hanging at the end of this novel, like
...who is the Orinai
...what happened all those years ago between the Rahuli and the Orinai
...what is the relationship between the Rahuli and The Orinai
...who is the enemy that is mentioned by both Elyana and Kaiden
...what is the bloodlines that Beryl mentions coming together at the end of the novel
...why does Beryl hear voices, and whose voices does he hear
...who was Briane and who did she belong to, and why was she lost
...what is Beryl
...who was Eldriean and how did he come to be the leader of the people
...lastly was the world always such a large desert or is the world physically unchanged and the people have just wondered away from the non-desert parts of the world.

The story kept me coming back for more. I haven't read the first book in this series but don't feel I need to I order to fill unclear holes, which is good.
There's a lot of war and weaponry (which is lifelike, which is pretty cool) and soul-searching in between. I love a book that can delicately weave in religion(s) and he does it well. There are some cool magical powers on top of dragons that were definite highlights of the story.
The writing is a bit wordy and repetitive but the end made me super excited for the next book (GREAT ending). Overall a good read!
*I received a free copy of this book for an unbiased review.

I really enjoyed Resurgent Shadows. I'm very much looking forward to the series and recommend it for a light and entertaining read. No this book is not the next Lord of the Rings in depth or breadth. However, if you are like me and enjoy a well written and well described light fantasy with some decent twists and a new concept then this book is well worth reading. I did not put the book down and very much enjoyed it. Please join me in reading it.

I shared this feedback with Kevin else where but I wanted to share it here:

I wanted to thank you for the Successive Shadows series. I'm looking forward to book 2. I enjoyed a couple of points:

1) I like how you are drawing in bits of faith. I find it interesting that modern authors have shied away bringing questions of faith into fantasy novels. Eric is clearly Judeao-Christian in some nature (though the nature seems to be irrelevant for now). I would love to see this faith explored greater. I like the depth you are trying to draw out here but you could do much more (as part of Eric's character growth).
2) I greatly enjoy the breadth of characters and their growth both for Caleb and Eric. I was surprised by the choice of a bow for Caleb and allowed my brain to see a sabre or a scimitar at that time. I am still interested in the juxtaposition that seems to have occurred between the two characters. Caleb began the beast and became calm ... possibly even negatively show. Eric began the thinker and is now the beserker. I am interested to see where you take this.

Things I would personally love to see:

1) What became of the US Military. I am still dissatisfied with the depth of explanation given so far.
