What impresses me greatly is the descriptive talent he displays in showing us the use of Ash's powers. There is some wonderful writing here and to be able to explain and describe so clearly a process which doesn't exist is an enviable skill. I read it, I saw it in my mind, I believed it. This book will enhance Jon Rosenberg's reputation as a skilled storyteller. His writing is developing both in style and in power. I loved it!
The criticisms I've read in other reviews, around he cultural stereotypes can be annoying - Llewellyn "Boyo" ( lived in Wales for 25 years and nobody said "boyo"!) and Scotland's "Nessie" - perhaps they should be dropped.
Overall great - give us more Jon!
His friends and colleagues return, but this time they are more bit-players while Ash tries hard not to fall foul of a whole range of of occult plots and entities, including the Goddess of the chaos before the Big Bang.
Excuse me while I nip onto Amazon to buy the next in the series...
All this silly dialogue spoils what is a very good series of books. I know we’re dealing with what is essentially adult fairy tales, but that shouldn't preclude the presence of believable, three dimensional characters, not cardboard cut-outs.
This is one Hell of a rollercoaster ride through the dark side of the Greek pantheon of gods, with the world once again in peril from the machinations of the Powers that circle around Custodian Ash Dawson's world. Rosenberg lashes through the story with his usual inventiveness and ability to make the supernatural mundane. This is up there with the best of contemporary fantasy - almost.
My reservations with this book are that although Rosenberg's handling of the supernatural has improved markedly, this book sees a real dip in story-telling and plotting. From about page 5, we are thrust into a maelstrom of crisis, with almost no pause for breath. That would be fine, except that it reveals some real weaknesses in story-telling. When your entire approach to moving the plot forward is to give the protagonist an endless series of magical beings to confront, it helps if you can have some variety to the action. Almost every scene of peril is cut from the same template - Ash faces a monster. He tries something that works before and it fails. He is beaten up. He gets desperate then goes 'Ah ha!', and tries something different. He moves forward...
I am very much looking forward to sampling book 4 in the series; I'm also hoping that Rosenberg varies the pace and approach a little more.
David Ash is a Summoner that is he can produce objects and people from other dimensions. But it seems to do nothing but get him into trouble.
In this book he starts to investigate the bizarre death of another Summoner. But then most of the remaining Summoners are transported away to another dimension out of contact. Ash is left with only the help of Jenny, Sam and Llewellyn to rescue the day.
Lots of twists and turns , very well-crafted book
