Format: Kindle Edition
I loved this book. I took it on holiday and read the whole thing while I was away. (long flights are a good thing after all ).

I really enjoyed this book - it was very well written and had me hooked from the beginning. I love the relative normality in which we are introduced to John, and then the chaos he is thrown into. Although we meet him in a dreadful emotional place, it puts us with him mentally and helps us to understand the strangeness he moves on to.

All the characters are well drawn, and necessary to the plot. I loved the fact I related to almost all the characters, even though some did not have the best intentions!

The descriptions of Spirit were fantastic and I could definitely picture the storm clouds and malevolence they brought.

My only slight niggle (and it's not a huge thing) is that I felt the end came too quickly - I wasn't expecting it to end when it did... I wanted a longer finale to the story....

I can't wait to read more from Matt. Big thumbs up from me!!

Format: Paperback
This was an intriguing mixture of post-apocalyptic Earth, and fantasy of the world of Crescent. Bridging the two is John, who wakes up to discover he's the only living human still on Earth (at least, as far as he can tell). He eventually gets transported to Crescent where he finds he's not alone any longer, and becomes involved in an epic quest to save his new home.

I loved the author's writing style. Characters have depth and personality, and situations and scenes are described beautifully. Even peripheral characters have something to them, which is sometimes not the case in other fiction. The plot moved along at a good pace, with a good balance between action and quieter events. One thing that really stood out was the richness of the history and culture of Crescent; although the people are at least similar to humans, the society and other creatures are decidedly different to Earth. The Endless were particularly enigmatic, and it will be intriguing to see what happens in future episodes of the story.

This also isn't just a standard good guy vs. bad guy tale. All of the main characters have strengths and failings, evil—and goodness—can come from unexpected directions. Their relationships develop throughout the book, with some surprises along the way, and all this combines to make them particularly realistic. Throw in some shared enemies, and this is far from the run of the mill single-evil-baddie tale that can be common in fantasy fiction. My particularly favourite character was Manvedian, and I do hope we see more of him in the future.

I have just one bugbear. What happened to Mr Kirsch? Darn it, enquiring minds would like to know, and this cat owner (ok, servant) doesn't want to contemplate the possibilities....

Fabulous book, loved it to bits, and can't wait for the next one.

Format: Kindle Edition
~I recieved from Astro Impossible books as a runner-up prize (discovered through goodreads- firstreads giveaway)~

It's a bit of a shocker that although I did start understanding a ton of what was happening in Part 2 it would take half the book until I could have correct conviction that something was going to happen (and I didn't know this, but here's a BONUS: this book doesn't end on a cliffhanger!). I was asked why this book seemed to be taking me a while (a question I cannot blame anyone for asking) and my answer was not that this was a bad book. It's not.
So y'know... It IS good but the chapters are pretty darn long (it seems on the kindle at least where I can't flick to see the next chapter start otherwise it'll mess up).

Part of the reason Endless took me quite so long was that Matt kept breaking this *points at heart*
Sort of... I was a bit like this...

Format: Paperback
This book begins with the story of John who wakes up as the last human alive on Earth and the the desolation he sees and feels. That is until he is suddenly transported to another world called Crescent that is very unlike our own. He must fight against powers he does not understand to save that world from a fate worse than ours faced. He finds new friends and new abilities along the way. It was a great read that I could not put down. Matt Bone has created characters and a world that I cannot wait to explore more.

I really enjoyed Endless. It tells a large scale story - with a lot of background information - easily, through the main characters who are all engaging. It was a page-turner as well as having great prose. I found myself going to bed early for some extra reading time - I love when that happens.
