4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining traditional quest fantasy 17 Nov. 2014
By LunarmommyK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Entertaining traditional quest fantasy with shades of Tolkien, Indiana Jones, and Inu-Yasha. An evil Dark One and his undead legions are on the move, and they can only be stopped if the shattered sphere meant to contain the dark one's soul is reassembled. The novel follows a party of fighters and an elf sorceress as they search for the pieces of the sphere.

The book is pretty well-written and easy to follow. The plot seems kind of static; the events of the plot don't build on each other as they unfold. You could cut the book apart into its separate episodes and rearrange them and, except for a few minor details of personnel, setting, and how much of the sphere has been reassembled, it wouldn't change the story. For this reason, as well, in spite of the difficulties the characters face in their quest, it all seems a little too easy; none of their adventures have any lasting effects on them, except another piece is added to the Soul Sphere. The prose itself is very clear and readable.

The book is also pretty thin on character development; none of the characters experience any noticeable growth or change, and the only one with any real distinguishing characteristics (besides the religiously devout paladin Rowan) is Lucien the goblin, taller than any of the others, green, muscular, and with an entertainingly dry wit. Lucien is far and away my favorite character, though the others are pleasant enough.

But the main point of the story is the world the characters travel through and the cool magical traps and puzzles they have to solve while trying to retrieve the pieces of the Sphere (hidden by the Dark One's minion Solek), and these are very entertaining and well-done, and I found myself eagerly tied to each chapter to find out how they get out of whatever trap or danger they're in. A few of the resolutions are a little deus ex machina, but a lot of them also rely on the characters' skill and cleverness, and they're fun to read.

There isn't a shred of romance in the story, which I personally found disappointing but I know other fantasy fans prefer their epic quests to be romance-free.

The book ends with the company about to embark on the most dangerous search of all. Apparently this was the author's first book, and the issues I mentioned, of thin character development and weak plot escalation, are common ones found in authors' earlier works, and they usually improve with time and practice. I will definitely read the sequel to The shattered Sphere to find out how it all turns out.
5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing and tense read with a bit of humor thrown in. 11 Feb. 2017

The Soul Sphere had me spellbound throughout the whole book. The questers were of different races, each one with a very different personality in many ways. I was drawn to the group and felt as though I followed them through all their trials, fights and fears. I would recommend this book to anyone, even those who do not read fantasy. Because I truly feel that once they start reading, they will be caught up as I was.
4.0 out of 5 stars 3-3/4 stars, reasonably good Quest type fantasy. 5 Feb. 2013
By jcat - Published on Amazon.com

A lot of creatures packed into this first book.

Dwarves, Elves, Goblins, Gargoyles, Demons, Dragons.....have I missed anything?

A band of humans and others go on a quest to find segments of a shattered sphere in order to fight the Big Evil, Solek, and save the land of Arkania from his legions of dead creatures.

Pretty standard theme, good style and action.

The only things that kept it from being a four star, for me, was because there was none of the usual conflict between the main characters. Not much, anyways. Get any group of folks together for any reason and there just has to be issues, even if you're attempting to save the Land! I also found myself skimming through some of the extensive travel scenes.

Not a bad read, however--well worth the time.
5.0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to next in series 11 Mar. 2013

I really enjoyed the reading The Shattered Sphere. The story seemed to flow nicely. I thought the soul sphere concept was fairly original. The characters seemed to interact well with each other (especially Lucien and Cordon). I did think character development was a bit lacking (a little bit more personal information about each one would have been nice, maybe book two will expand on this).

I thought the author made the journeys the group undertook all over the land seemed realistic and I liked the interaction between the main group and the other supporting members they encountered during all their travels. I also liked the variety of creatures/walking dead/other (e.g. mist) that the author included.

Overall, an enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, Creative, and An Excellent Read 14 July 2014
By Frostfire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I normally don't ready demon/magical creatures/"evil one" type fantasies but I'm so glad I gave the Soul Sphere a try. I love the way the author fused the voices of the various heroes and heroines. The dangers mounted and seemed overwhelming. Just wonderfully thought out and executed. I read both Book 1 and Book 2 in just two days. I couldn't put it down. This is one set I will tell my friends about and save to reread for myself.
