It was the reviewer.
There were certain aspects of the story that were extremely intriguing, particularly the backstory and the looks into the medieval timeframe. Clearly, the author did a great deal of research, and I really liked this part of the story. I also liked the mystery involved. There were twists and turns that I did not see coming, and even though parts of the plot seemed farfetched to me, I thought the plot was creative and unlike anything I had read before.
That being said, there are grammatical errors. There are punctuation errors. There are words missing from sentences. Here are some examples from about 60% through the book:
"She mouth chewing over her words."
"They don't me to get in touch with Dad."
"The chanting continued, which grated grating on Daniel's nerves."
"...hoisted her higher for a moment before laying lay her down..."
"... these elements nee a little verification..."
All of these examples are within a few pages of each other.
The other reviewer also mentions that a character changes names. Yes--the solicitor is called Spencer, and then Simpson, and then Spencer again.
One other thing that really bothered me is that the main character's father is called Dad in the story--as if that were his name. I understand that this is third person limited, but it is still told in third person, not first. And there are scenes where Daniel is not present and the character is still referred to by the narrator as Dad. I don't understand why Mr. Stone couldn't be called by his name instead of Dad--he wasn't everyone's dad. I've never read a book written in third person before where a character isn't called by his name, rather than being identified by his relationship to the main character.
Overall, I think this was a pretty good book, but it would be better if the errors were corrected. I would recommend this book to people who like historical fiction and paranormal.
You must insist on a new editor. Your current editor let the book be published with confusing errors like different names for the same character. I like your adolescent character until the very end when you sold him out for a sequel.
