Customer Review

on January 11, 2014
Hall takes on a lot in “Inception (Neuralian Chronicles: The Siede).” He rewrites the history of the planet using what is commonly accepted with new motivations for why those events happen. The Neuralians not only rewrite the history of the planet but mythology as well and that is the aspect that plays the biggest part in this novel. The premise is that we are all evolved from this race but most of us are too muddied to understand. We have lost the ability to live forever or communicate through thought. Rather like the idea of enlightenment, only the highest forms still have a glimmer of the former being. There are Neuralians still around and they exist in mythology as it was known across the ancient world.

There are a number of characters in this novel and Hall manages to keep distinct. Some perhaps rely on what we already know of them. Loki, for example, is a trickster. Anthony Griggs is framed early on through introspection before the mystery of the novel begins and Hall gives us a character that has survived extraordinary odds. He is looking for that higher purpose and when he finds it that purpose is life and death in a very literal sense.

I have to commend Hall on the pacing of “Inception (Neuralian Chronicles: The Siede).” The flow of the story is masterful. This is a tale that could have been easily bogged down in minutia but Hall kept his narrative moving with graceful impact and economical phrasings. The action, though fast moving, loses nothing in translation.

If you like fantasy and a clever rewriting of our world, pick this one up today.
