About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The premise had promise; the problem was it was cribbed from other books -- there was nothing original enough to have it shake the label of cliche.
Two-thirds of the way through the book I had a hard time remembering--much less caring--about who specific characters were. The bad guys either are incompetent, haven't read the Evil Overlord list, or universally have the character flaw of gloating too long until a deus ex arrives for the Good Guys.
Last, and most inexcusable, was the fact that every instance of the word "lose" was spelled--you guessed it--"loose." If a quote-professional-unquote editor approved this, she/he should be immediately fired.
"We're loosing the battle," said Jack.
What I did not enjoy however, was the Kindle adaptation...or at least I assume it was just the Kindle adaptation, because I can't believe a book would go to print with the issues I saw. Minor spelling issues I can live with, use of " instead of ' I can get over....but the inter-chapter change between story lines without any indication at all with a space between paragraphs is at time hard to follow. I've never come across this in a Kindle book, and I've bought a couple hundred so far, so I can only assume it was either by choice (bad choice), or poor conversion/editing. I would assume it can be fixed fairly easily with one quick run through (heck, I'll do it for you if you need a hand).
Anyway, if the story wasn't so enjoyable, I wouldn't have been able to get past the editing issues, but I complement the author for a compelling story and I look forward to the next book.
This is a great read. The author puts a lot of stuff into one story with quite a bit of success. The story does jump around (time wise) a couple times, but in the end it adds to the story as a whole. Characterization is well developed and the writing style is good, with few editing errors.
I'm not a Vampire fan, but I enjoy new twists on old concepts. This book is a great example of that. I am one of those reviewers who appreciate cost in comparison to story, and for a free download, this is a home run.
You're reading a section with Harris and in the next paragraph, you're with Nero. There's nothing to separate the change of venue. Normally, an author uses chapters to switch characters, a line or an extra paragraph space. Not in this book - not my copy, anyway. And the time change.. what a mess - extremely confusing. There was a part where Harris goes back in his memories. It took me a few sentences to realize what happened. And then when we're brought back to the present - again, no separator. This lack of formatting removes any smoothness in the reading.. it's like driving on a bumpy road.
There is a lot of military description - weaponry, tactics. If you aren't interested in it, you can skim it. The story itself, the world it's in is interesting on its own, as are the characters. The battle at the end captured my imagination - by then, I was used to the character changing lack of format and adapted a little better.
Over all it was an ok read if you have the time.
