More About the Author

A resident of Bayonne, NJ, USA - the fabled birthplace of George R. R. Martin - Joseph Lallo is an unlikely entry into the world of literature. After a childhood spent daydreaming and reading, he fully intended to pursue a career in the tech sector. He received a Master's Degree in Computer Engineering from New Jersey Institute of Technology, and subsequently got a job working IT for a large healthcare corporation. Things changed when, in January 2010, his friends finally convinced him to publish the story that had accumulated over the course of a decade of spare time. That story, now known as the Book of Deacon Trilogy, was a surprise hit, and once he got a taste of the world of indie writing, he was hooked. Now he splits his time between crunching numbers at his day job, writing novels at night, and writing articles and reviews for BrainLazy.com, a group blog he helps run. His latest novels are Bypass Gemini and Unstable Prototypes, the first two books of a science fiction series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read as with the previous two 4 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found all the books in the series enjoyable with a few jarring exceptions in the use of words. Perhaps the D'akaran could have been a little more fully explained along with their reasons for acting as they did and why they wanted to take over the world. The characters of the humans, wizards, and malthropes were well written. The word effect was used many times when it should have been affect. There were more doves flying round than in a medieval castles dovecote. Things don't "dove" to the side or away from something, dive or dived away are the correct words to use. The occassional missed word makes nonsense of a sentence. On the plus side we were not treated to many "gottens" instead of got and no nerve jangling awesomes.

All in all these books are an enjoyable read in which to lose yourself for a few hours. I would like to keep Myn for myself along with the mystival staff of the wizard.

If you're looking at this book, chances are, you've read the previous two and are going to buy it anyway. The finale is here and by and large it does not dissappoint. The earlier battles in the book drag a little, but there are some welcome surprises that keep you on your toes and later on, the story makes you want to keep reading to the bitter end. The hooks dig deep into your mind and keep you hooked. I would definitely reccomend this author and this book. So if you've read the first two books, I strongly reccomend you read this one and if you haven't, go and get the first two and dive into a wonderful trillogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Deacon Series 13 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having bought the trilogy which I read from cover to cover. I thought that I should at least make some form of comment. I enjoyed these books immensely and thought that the writing was excellent. I found that I was reading more than I have ever done before and could not put these books down till they were finished. I thought that these books should be read by everyone who likes a good adventure story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Third in the trilogy 9 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book to find out what would happen to the hero's and the world in which they lived. General I found it a good read and difficult to put down. Some areas were a little disappointing and some descriptions of evil characters were difficult to picture, possibly because they were too unrealistic. Still it would be a good read for the beach if your into wizards and magic, though not in a Harry Potter kind of way.

A tad too much explanation in places, but the ending could have been better, otherwise not too bad a series.

3.0 out of 5 stars I prefered the first book. 30 Jan 2013
By Celine
Format:Kindle Edition
It is a good read. However there was a lot tgings that made sense. And I found that the author did not give enough description of the character's feelings, too much description of the battles.
I really liked one part but then lost interest.
However, I recomend the first book in these series: the book of Deacin.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Little Disappointing 25 Jan 2013
By suemar
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the first two books in the trilogy. Yes, there were a few errors here and there, as noted by other reviewers, but not enough to stop me reading. I found the characters engaging, the world intriguing and the plot moved along with enough twists and turns to keep me interested and wanting to know what happened next. I was eagerly looking forward to the final book.

Unfortunately, I found the third book did not hold my interest in quite the same way. It seemed to me that the author had used up most of his new & orignal plot lines in the first two books and his only idea was to move his characters from one battle to another until he had written anough to fill a book. Slightly harsh, as there were some interesting plot developments during the book, but they seemd to be rushed through and were overshadowed by the rather overlong battle descriptions.

On the whole, I am glad I bought these 3 books and will certainly be looking at other books by the same author.

Some of the description about the battle towards the end was, at times, a bit much to get into the flow of the story but overall I loved all three books. More please.
