When you pick up a book, sometimes you do just not know what you are getting yourself into. I mean sure if you pick up a book with a hunk of man on it, you most certainly know what you are getting. The same can be said if you pick up a book with a hot woman on it, whoa. Then other books you can read the blurb. It may sound good to you, then it may not. I thought this book sounded good, so I told the author I would read it.
Mr. McClennan sent the book to me and I went right into it. For some reason the action got to me right away, and it got better the deeper I read. The characters seemed real. I am not a comic book reader. So super heroes are out. I prefer normal characters with maybe a slight edge. Another thing, the author said the book was fantasy. I am not really into knights, dragons, fair maidens, dwarves and the like. This book had a touch of that but if this book is fantasy, then something is wrong.
I prefer science fiction, you know books that tell about the future and what to expect. There is a lot of that in this book. So to be fair I would have to say this is a true SciFi/ Fantasy book. A little bit of everything. Yet that does not make a book.
What makes a book is a good author. Good authors are hard to find. There are hundreds that publish every month, most of them become failures, or continue to write slosh books where the characters names change, the location changes, but it is the same story in almost every other book that is put out each month.
This book defied all of that and it makes Mr. McClennan a true author. Read this book and enjoy it. – Remmy Meggs, Reviewer http://remmymeggs.com
