I was totally immersed in the book within the first few pages. Instead of creating a new world in the far reaches of space, author Paul Neslusan creates a hidden city thousands of feet below the earth's surface.
Solypse is a city of layers, physical layers, spiritual and political layers. It is populated by dwarfs, elves, humans, magicians and more. And what is even more fascinating is that this is a novel of layers. The history of how Solypse came into being is slowly revealed at the same time as the layers of each of the main characters are peeled off to reveal the heroes hidden beneath.
The plot is complex and fast moving as we move back and forth between a small band of travelers on a trade mission, to the impending danger to the City of Solypse. As the travelers fight for survival on "the path," their backgrounds unfold. Pash is the powerless pawn of a domineering, ruthless father. The Temple priests are sending him on a mission to see if he can "come into his own." Larrik, a dwarf with a hidden past, has been sent to protect Path -- and Cillian, who has been ordered to accompany them is a master assassin.
As Solypse comes under attack by an unspeakably evil forces, it is up to these three to gather the resources that will save the city from total annihilation.
I loved the plot and the action, but most of all I loved the character development and the forging of relationships between groups of people who would not ordinarily become friends.
"Book ONE" would imply that Book Two is in the works, I have my fingers crossed that I don't have to wait too long!
This was an outstanding first novel by Mr. Neslusan, and I look forward to reading his forthcoming novels!!
