I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the sequel. It is a surprise that such a well written book should be offered for free on Kindle but it is not the first book that I have discovered in this way. The characters are well developed and the story line moves smoothly and consistently. Every Race is well thought out and described in detail ~ the physical descriptions, personal and racial traits, strengths and weakness are all explored. The author takes the time to explore all aspects of the story, explaining all decisions and actions, thereby eradicating the niggly questions that sometimes arise in such tales. I was impressed with this author and will actively seek other work written by him.
The story about the return of magic to the land and the need to get rid of it is a good one; teaming up with old races so that they can work together to achieve a common goal is one which has been done before, but much better.
Don't get me wrong, it is a very good book, with an excellent story, it is just that the telling of the story was very cumbersone and slow from about a third into the book. Very long and laborious descriptions, leaving not one blade of grass to the imagination, meant that even fast and exciting sections were thrown in treacle just to scrape those last few pages. It felt as if the author was told to pad out some sections so he did just that, going as far as describing every thought and emotion and musing to itself with ponderous chunks as the author tried to describe how a character felt.
The bringing together of the races should be fraught with uncertainty and apprehension. Generations of institutionalised mistrust would have taken place over the many years; you've got Dwarves, Elves, lizard people called Algors, Delvers and Humans. Hardly any race likes the humans and each one mistrusting the other races, apparently, yet the meeting of the races flowed like a bubbling stream as if they had only been away from each other for the weekend.
It is a pity that this aspect was not concentrated upon a bit more as the potential was definately there, instead they met, talked, sometimes excessively, then started the journey!Read more ›
It is not that original - bringing together different races to tackle a common threat/enemy has been done before and done better. There are some nice touches though and it is a pleasant enough read and engaging enough to make you want to keep reading.
What a find as a free book - Jeff Inlo brings a wonderful piece of literature to us. The storyline is well thought out and the characters so well developed I can almost see them when I am reading his words. Although the book is long, your attention doesn't wander as there is lots of action moving the story forward but interesting even with the action there is a calmness in the story, it glides along unfolding the various roles and responsibilities of the characters, while cleverly showing you their underlining mistrust of the other races and their own responsibilities to their races.
Read the book you will not be disappointed!
Yes! as someone said there are a few spelling mistakes and sometimes lengthy explanations, but it doesn't detract from the overall entertainment of the books.
Well worth reading.

This boo.k is well written, a good balanced story that delivers on two levels, either a ripping good yarn or an opportunity to explore deeply spiritual faith. Excellent all roundPublished on 28 Feb. 2014 by Linda High
