I'm rereading this series after the author made significant changes to the editing. It's heaps better. It flows well, the passive voice is gone and it's a clean read. I enjoyed it much better second time around and would definitely recommend it. The world building is more breathtaking this time around and I've forced my mind through mental gymnastics to understand how it all hangs together so intricately. Good job CJ Rutherford. It's great to see a debut author growing and developing their craft. To anyone who read it a year ago - definitely read it again.
In his first full-length novel, C.J. Rutherford displays exceptional skill as he sets the stage for an opening of worlds that only a vivid imagination could awaken, and an excellent writer could describe. As the story unfolds, Katheryne and Perry in our world, Derrin and Krista from Sanctuary, come alive to such an extent that you will undoubtedly recognize them in people you know. Two personal favorite sci-fi themes, multi / parallel universes, and time travel are presented and introduced, initially through dreams and nightmares, in an easy to understand, completely believable manner.
Rutherford has a particular talent for writing narrative detail and, if you prefer that over dialog, you’ll find your fill within these pages. While dialog is sparse through many sections of the story, when it comes, it is relevant and spot on to the character. I highly recommend “Souls of the Never,” and I’m looking forward to future books in the series. Because of the excellent narrative, I believe “Souls of the Never” lends itself exceptionally well to an audio book, and I hope Mr. Rutherford takes advantage of that venue in the future.
The technique that the author uses is very similar to that used in high action movies where the camera zooms and pans, constantly changing the perspective. I found it overwhelming at first, and often had to go back and reference a previous chapter to refresh a character in my mind. Each chapter jumps not only to different characters, but also different points in time and different worlds. One moment you're watching an elf hunting in the forest, the next you are in the middle of a galactic war, and spaceships are blowing up all around you. The Liberi, guardians of the universe and enemies of the evil Tenybris, can cross dimensions as well as time, at will! Eventually, it all comes together to form one hell of an exciting story.
Now, I must warn that this story needs editing still. Grammatical errors kept me from giving it top marks. That being said, I enjoyed reading it and will definitely read the next installment.
This is Book One in Tales of the Neverwar. An epic adventure through time, space and alternate realities. Suitable for the Young Adult audience.
He pulls in a lot of action and mixes in a little bit of young adult romance just for good measure.
This isn't my usual genre, but I found this novel interesting and thrilling. Katheryne is an average teenage student who finds herself swept into a mystery. But not just any mystery. This mystery involves another place and another time and a man she's only met in her dreams. When Katheryne meets her mystery man, the novel turns from a comfortable romance to a spine tingling roller coaster ride through alternate realms and battles.
