Book Description

Author Jeff Powell wakes up to find the impossible has happened. He is within his own novel—summoned into the fictional world of Feldall’s Keep by a spell he didn't write. One the House enchantress hasn't figured out how to reverse.

When the villain he's been struggling to write reveals himself, unleashing waves of terror and chaos, Jeff must use more than his imagination to save the characters he created—and the woman he loves.

Trapped within a world of his own creation, he must step outside the bounds of his narrative to help his characters defeat an evil no one anticipated, even if he must sacrifice his greatest gift. In the end, he has to ask: are novels really fiction, or windows into other worlds?

4.0 out of 5 stars A promising tale 4 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What usually stands out in a debut novel is the abundance of just about everything: unusual character names, clever ideas, use of magic or other effects (genre applicable), and lots of bits of plot. The trick appears to be to play down some of the wilder thoughts that creep into the story, while still retaining the exuberance of a fledgling attempt on a genre and story type.

Krista manages this very well; you won't be flicking back a few pages to work out why you don't understand that passage about a magical spell you've just read, and the plot, while allowing for future options (who doesn't want to see the big bad guy make a return eventually?!) doesn't amble off into randomness. There's some decidedly non-standard use of creatures, and some well-developed relationships that hold the interest.

I liked the premise - a very clever one of having Jeff the 'author' of the piece trapped inside his own story - his own shortcomings as a writer are laid bare and used against him - some of his characters have developed lives and events he never wrote, a subconscious overcoming of his own simplified black and white approach to his main plot strands. By the end, Jeff appears to have learned valuable lessons in how he needs to think more like his characters and let them live in the pages.

A promising tale - I hope there are more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastical tale with a difference 7 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story grew on me as I read it. At first I wasn't too fussed with it, yet slowly but surely it drew me in and became an exciting and gripping fantastical read. I thought the idea was highly original - an author being transported to the fantasy world he's created in his novel.

The fictional author, Jeff, was a hugely sympathetic character for me. I was rooting for him all the way and felt indignant on his behalf when some of the other characters from his fictional world treated him less than sympathetically. But as the story unfolded, even the frostier characters warmed to him as he began to prove his worth.

There were many other vivid characters in this novel and I particularly liked the way the author has created some strong female characters - especially Jasmine and Maggie. They were not unrealistically strong though and did have their weaknesses. I thought the author portrayed them well, particularly the way Jasmine begins to thaw towards Jeff as the story progresses which I thought was true to life.

The world that the author has created has obviously been meticulously planned and thought out, with a whole back story to the situation it was in when Jeff first arrived. This made it very vivid and real to me.

I don't read a lot of fantasy, but I would say that this story would be accessible to anyone who likes a gripping, exciting and fun read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely read 11 April 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a brilliant concept, an author going to bed and awakening in his story to deal with the consequences he has created for his characters. Jeff, a very shy man, finds it hard to establish relationships in real life and spends his time being a successful writer. Working on a deadline for his latest book he decides to kill off one of his main characters and pondering on this idea he goes to bed only to weaken in his story. He soon discovers that actually living in some of the atrocities he has created is not as much fun as writing about them.
I really liked how Jeff gradually changes in this book. His arrogance becomes humble, his fear becomes courage. I also liked the concept that these characters lives also developed themselves. A lovely story to read. Already on book 2

A fantasy writer literally gets sucked into the book he is writing. Unfortunately not all the inhabitants like him and/or the destinies he wrote for them and there is an evil genius out to take over and enslave the world he has created. Unfortunately he is just a writer, not a hero or a warrior mage and the world he created is frought with danger and hardship, which is what makes for good fantasy writing after all. He is not entirely happy with his own destiny and the challenges he must face, if he manages to stay alive long enough.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent premise, poor execution 17 May 2015
By Dee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The premise of an author being trapped in the world he created was an excellent start, however, it read more like a teenager's fantasy. There was a lot of antagonism going on between the author and the main characters which while justified was a bit off putting when it stretched on and on.. Maybe better editing is required... The ideas are all there... It's the narrative that lets the book down

5.0 out of 5 stars enjoyed greatly 17 April 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved this book, something different with some good twists and things are not entirely as expected. Really enjoyed the read and am happy to say that some of the spelling and grammer mistakes that overrun and ruin some free books are absent here. I am looking forward to the next book...hope its not too expensive!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read 26 April 2014
By Frenchie TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was a read I enjoyed as I love the story line that the author of the book falls into his own book!
But I have to say that as much as I have enjoyed the descriptions and my favourite characters, Jasmine, Corey, Jayden, but especially Maggie and Brady (must be his nerdish side) I could not stand Jeff, the author (of the book in the story). Arrogant beyond limits, I would have fed him to the dragon a thousand times before he did redeem himself a little.
If it was not for his stubbornness, I think I would have enjoyed the book even more.
Evensong is a solid fantasy, nice to read and I have no problem in recommending it. I wonder how many more people will have problem with Jeff's 'I know it all, this is impossible, I am the author' attitude..
