What an adventure a simple boy, Garth, from Detroit had, when he was abducted by an Ice warrior and an owl-eyed G'mach, from a different world, from a different Galaxy.

Not believing, what they are telling him, the simple boy, he just refuses to go with them. But he had no joys in that matter. They simple eject him in their rescue pot. He has plenty of time to think. He, a Kind? What are they talking about. He is the ancient Promise for his planet, as it was foretold? He really has difficulty to believe.

Will he succeed? will he believe? Find out in that great story in a great new world.

I feel there was a ton of set up in this book, the story gained momentum as it went and look forward to the next round.

I'm really torn between 3 and 4 stars. In some places, the book is excellent - the writing and characters interesting. In others, I could barely make myself keep reading. If I were younger, perhaps I would like it more. It seems aimed at the young adult audience - a sullen, defiant teenager is the protagonist. And that's one thing that really turned me off. When we're first introduced to David/Garth, he is apathetic about everything except girls, music and comic books. He is saved from a certain death by two heroes, and spends most of the book begging to be put back - even though that would mean not only his death or capture by evil, but the destruction of his father's planet. He manages to evade death several times in the book primarily by "fate." He's the guy that if you yell, "Don't look!" he does, if you tell him not to smile, he smiles. The second thing that annoyed me was the uneven pacing - there were some parts that seemed to drag on with very little addition to the plot. What saves the book is both the prose and the moments of action that drag you along for the ride. I stuck to it, and really enjoyed the final part of the book.

The lushly vivid story of a young man, persistent in an inward retreat when challenged by a wild reality. David: Savakerrva, Book 1 carries the reader through contrasts of refulgent heroism and cancerous doubts in a world sparked of enduring struggles, conflicts both natural and between cultures. The reader will be enthralled by these sharp clashes throughout his day, as if he himself were there, the writing is so memorable. Every word, crafted as a precision cut and polished diamond: Saverkerrva shall remain with you, as memories in your hands, and you'll want to discover what's coming next over the horizon. Highly recommended.

What determines my rating is whether or not I want more of the story. I want more. I enjoyed the ride from Detroit to C'raggh, experiencing Garth's coming of age - becoming David. It is well written and very imaginative.

I have to agree with the first reviewer. Mr. Brown is definitely a master of phrase and character filled prose. In fact those seem to be the pillars of his writing style. I was pleasantly surprised, by the storytelling as much as the plot. I feel like I could sit in a pub and listen to home rattle off anecdotes for hours.

David: Savakerrva is a fantastic novel with excellent characters, writing, and plot. This is the type of book that sticks with you long after finishing it. It’s unbelievably creative, introducing the reader to alien worlds while keeping the focus on its relatable main character. I highly recommend this novel, and am looking forward to reading the second installment. Side note, I beta read for Lawrence Brown during the final stages of his novel. Easily one of the best novels I’ve beta read.
