I found this tale intriguing. The first few chapters seemed a little disjointed and hard to believe, but after that, the narrative became more convincing and stimulating. It was hard to put down. Well done!
This is interestingly good
Everything fits in
Good, but not a bestseller
The story being told here has so much potential to develop into something truly epic - maybe not Tolkien epic, but epic nonetheless.
The author has conveyed emotions and environments fairly well throughout, allowing readers to visualise the flow of the story, like any good book does. The structure of the story may not be to everyone's taste - there's a lot of switching back and forth between characters - though when reading the title, and after seeing the front cover, most of you probably aren't expecting a masterpiece.
Unfortunately, there are a number of simple errors that might ruin the book from a grammar student's point of view, and the ending leaves you a little unsatisfied, wondering "what, is that it?" I'm yet to check if there is a sequel, though that is next on my list of priorities - the way the story ends, a sequel definitely seems appropriate.
Overall, the book is quite entertaining, and certainly had my attention over the past few days. It kinda feels like a cheap, low budget action film that would be SO much better as a Hollywood remake; and that's how I'd summarise this book best - it would make a great movie. This one's free though, so it's still worth checking out.
Hopefully there's a producer out there reading this... And I hope my little review was helpful!
