Présentation de l'éditeur

Simon can only watch, helpless, as his family is killed and his friends captured by enemy Travelers—men and women who can summon mystical powers from otherworldly Territories. To top it off, another young man from Simon's village discovers that he's a savior prophesied to destroy evil and save the realm.

Prophecy has nothing to say about Simon. He has no special powers, no magical weapons, and no guarantee that he'll survive. But he sets off anyway, alone, to gain the power he needs to oppose the Travelers and topple their ruthless Overlord. It may not be his destiny, but Simon's determined to rescue his fellow villagers from certain death.

Because who cares about prophecy, really?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Incredible world-building epic 19 juin 2013
Par Roiet - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
If you like epic fantasy, this book is a buy-now. Reminiscent of the Malazan series, with imagination at least on par with Sanderson, this book delivers the goods.

There's really so little originality in most epic fantasy - and self published epic fantasy is usually derivative dreck. Watered-down AD&D with English or American names, the obligatory pub scene, the Larry Sue hero who grows up a humble youth but rapidly becomes a master at swordplay or magic or both when his hands are first put to it. . . Dragons and evil sorcerers who grow mustaches because one looks ridiculous twirling empty air around one's mouth. Brawny fighters, studious mages, and bow-wielding rangers who speak with some attempt at an Irish or Scottish accent. (I blame youuuuuuu, Salvatore!) Evil, usurping kings and brave rebels and the Lost Heir to the Throne of Somewhere. (Who is usually the main character.)

Some (most?) self-published writers think that you don't need a truly good story so long as you have the trappings. Not this book. Not this author.

The dialogue is great. The action is great. The characters are actually three dimensional, and nothing is quite what it seems nor is anyone as good - or bad as one would think after reading the usual crap tropes from the usual crap writers. The plot is solid - this author really put a lot of thought into this book.

This is my favorite book of the year so far. (I'm always holding out hope.) Spend your money - and your time - on this novel. You won't regret it. I'll be first in line for the sequel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 From the viewpoint of the OTHER child who is NOT "the one" 21 juin 2013
Par Isabella - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I must say I found this book refreshing, exhilarating and hilarious. The tale is of two boys who set off to rescue their village and a certain pretty princess. Now don't cringe like I did when I read "rescue princess". This is no fairytale fantasy. The dashing hero although all things heroic (prophesy, sword, powers, character, looks, and all) is not who you will be rooting for and the princess might not want to be rescued. Cue in the thoroughly drab village boy who finds his un-prophesied self smack dab in the middle of history making times.

I loved this book because the protagonist EARNED his place in the story. Furthermore, the author managed to capture the hilarious thoughts that must go through the OTHER village boy's head when THE village boy is suddenly discovered as all powerful. I chuckled my way through every conversation between them. There were mysteries, revelations and a cast of vivid supporting characters. I enjoyed this book a lot and will be eagerly awaiting the sequel. Kudos to the author!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable with a certain mystique 15 juin 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

The book hits the ground running with action never in short supply. The book follows the story line primarily of Simon and Alin with Leah thrown is as a twist. This might contain a few spoilers so please read forward at your own risk.

Basic Overview of the Book:
The book shows these two boys on two different paths to save a "Princess" figure that is Leah. Simon is the dark hero of the story who is led by his desire to stand up for himself and to save Leah. Alin is a prophesied figure that is hot headed and driven by his desire for glory in saving Leah. The book shows there development whether it be physical or mental to accomplish the rescue of Leah with a large majority of the focus on Simon. During all of this they manage to entangle themselves in a clash of two empires, the Enosh and Damascus.

Character Development:
The character development is an ongoing process that is easily seen in characters. The reader gets to see Simon develop his powers and understanding of them along the morality of their use throughout the book via his actions and thought processes. We get to see the secrets come out about one of the characters gradually come out with a little bit more to be discovered keeping the readers attention. There is also the seemingly static character of a few people that I believe the author uses intentionally. Overall the character building throughout the story is amazing though there seems to be a few instances where its not really there.

Writing and Editing:
The book is easy to understand and comprehend. The storyline is pretty linear following no more than three characters through out the entire book. The editing is well done which is rare to see in such publishing and if there were any they would be hardly noticeable.

What I Loved About the Book:
First off he didn't pull a Robert Jordan as I affectionately call having more character POVs than you can count on your hands and feet combined. The book was action packed and never seemed to stale. There is mystery and plot twists in abundance to keep the reader engaged to want to figure out what is going on because quite frankly the author is baiting his audience really well. He gives us a taste of the magic system with little major tidbits strewn along showing that there is something deeper is a prime example.

Not to mention the main thing I love about the book is that so far there is no good or evil defined. Its all subjective to which side you sympathize with more. On one side you have an empire doing what it can to control something that will rip the world apart while another is trying to overthrow the supposed tyranny of that empire, both are believing they are doing the right thing. Then you have this other character split in the middle that's a wild card.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Three stars but a great buy, 2 décembre 2013
Par Dustin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Don't mind the 3 star rating. I literally just finished reading this book on loan and I'm here now, getting it for keeps, along with the sequel.

The only reason I give the book three stars instead of the four or even five that it's worth is because I feel that the pacing of the book is too fast. There is a very original take on magic here, with characters that are intriguing and many interesting questions that I can't wait to have answered. The action scenes flow very well, and the detail throughout the book is enough to paint a vivid image, but not so much that it slows the books pace.

I do, however, feel that the author skips entirely too much information between scenes. There are no transition periods, the whole book takes place over a span of months yet only details a few days of the journey. One sentence you're in the Territory of Valinhall, the next you're on the other side of a forest in the real world, with little to no explanation of when, how, or why.

Other than the disorienting changes of location, this book was great and I applaud the author for their originality. Here's hoping the sequel lives up to it's potential.

So I spend a lot of time trolling through books. Most are dissapointments but this was was actually a very pleasant suprise. I'm not much of a writer, so i'll just say the last time I bothered to put down 20 words so a book could have another rating was after I I read "Blood Song". Great book.
