4.0 out of 5 stars A Fantasy Spectacle of Mythological Proportions- Worth a read! 13 April 2014
By Eric Fomley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
'Fall of a Demigod' by A.J. Martinez is the story of a young Demigod named Caim. After 50 years as guardian of the heavenly city Kazenolumos, Caim finds his humanly desires for a mortal greater than his loyalty and duty to the Effeelions, his people. His love for the mortal woman has vast consequences when a powerful creature follows Caim home...
This short story is a good read for fantasy and Myth lovers alike. Aside from a few minor grammatical and spelling errors (The only reason for the missing star) that sometimes detract, you will find that this story of love and loyalty finds a special place in your heart.
5.0 out of 5 stars Struggles of a Demigod in an Interesting New Fantasy World 15 Dec 2013
By E. Lucas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
“Fall of a Demigod” is a short fantasy story about the demigod Caim, who has partnered with magical beings called the Effeelions. The Effeelions live in floating city in the sky and work toward reaching a higher spiritual being named Cosmus, and they are disturbed and unhappy when they find out Ciam has been consorting with a beautiful human woman on the earth below. Caim loves Kairi and is reluctant to give up his relationship with her, but his focus is ripped away from his dilemma when another powerful being attacks the Effeelions’ city—a being whose powers prove a challenge to even those of a demigod.

I read quite a bit of fantasy, and I particularly enjoy novels where the author takes the time to carefully create a new world that can be expanded on in future works. “Fall of a Demigod” has such a world—it gives enough details about the Effeelions, demigods, and the earth below to bring to life the story but still leaves questions unanswered as a way to draw you into subsequent works. Caim is a complex hero, brave and dutiful but still conflicted about his desire for human interaction even though he chose to give up his own mortality; the story’s villain, Jairo, is believably evil and strong enough that you do wonder if things are going to turn out all right in the end. I would recommend this story to readers who enjoy fantasy and science fiction, especially tales within those genres that engage in careful and interesting world-building.
5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting 12 Dec 2013
By Meghan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Anyone who likes a good fantasy novel will devour every page of AJ Martinez’s ‘Fall of a Demigod’. It starts fast—read the first few pages and see how the book powerfully reels you in—and never lets go until you’re reluctantly turning the last few pages. The upside to this short tale: Martinez has other writings you can enjoy.

At the heart of the ‘Fall of a Demigod’ is Caim, whose oath it is to aid the Effeelions in their quest. Being a demigod, however, means Caim is half-human—and eventually, his human desires become so compelling that Caim is powerless to resist them. How Caim struggles over his human half and how he marshalls his personal resources just to keep his oath with the Effeelions is a breathtaking story arcthat masterfully unravels, thanks to Martinez’s seasoned writing.

Overall, ‘Fall of a Demigod’ is a great-to-the-last-page kind of fantasy book—fans of the genre will not be disappointed. Martinez has the steady hand and seasoned literary gift of an author with genuine talent. He can communicate nuance like only a few could. Five stars for this one.
