I love that we can self-publish today, and that any aspiring author can get his/her work to an unprecedented audience, but this is no excuse for sloppy editing. I will be happy to re-read this book in the future if these problems and any more that may appear in the other 90% of the book are fixed, but for me, if an author can't take the time to get it right, I can't take the time to read it.
This book pulls you in right away, making you wonder what is going on. I was confused at first when it jumped from the beginning chapter discussing one person and the second chapter discussing another. It all made sense as I continued to read though.
I initially disliked Eric. I felt as if he was another snobby rich kid, boy was i wrong. He has such a great back story and in the end I feel sympathy toward him, and happiness that he did the right thing.
I really loved that these characters had real flaws. They were not so amazing that it was unbelievable. Each character has such a compelling story, it makes the reader want to invest the time to discover who they really are.
I really enjoyed the simplicity of the names given to the "good" and "bad" guys. Champions are the heroes who fight for the good in the world. Spoilers are the evil beings who ruin what is good. These names are simple, but perfectly fitting. I liked how champions were born and they had to choose to become one. It is as if you are choosing between the good and bad angels on your shoulders.
This novel is loaded with action and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat wanting to know more. Very good read!
Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
whilst procrastinating over his decision the spoilers leader Wesley ransacks Jim's college apartment and finds a list of champions information and goes on a killing spree ending in the kidnapping if his neighbour and mentor Nat park a legendary champion himself in an attempt to lure Jim into a trap.
Jim has to decide for once and for all whether to save park and in so becoming a champion or walking away from it all leaving his mentor to serve as a "battery" for the spoilers as they drain his very essence from him.
the story is well paced with loads of action, is engrossing and very entertaining, Eric who shares Jim's apartment goes in the tale from a real douche to a character of depth, facing his own personal demons whilst also backing Jim up to the hilt.
Jim has a real struggle to decide whether to take the champions route and is the cause for much of the death and mayhem and whilst I was reading the book my mind was screaming for him to man the hell up and get stuck in , I guess if that were me in real life the decision wouldn't be half as easy!
all in all well worth the read.
