I’ve known the author since high school, and we are friends (although not exactly drinking buddies - we live on opposite sides of the country). I’ve always considered him intelligent and thoughtful, but didn’t know if he had the storyteller’s gift. The fact that he kept details of the book quite secret until he was finished only served to make me more curious.
Well, I just finished the book and was pleasantly surprised. He did a great job. Even though I don’t read much fiction, and I’m not in the audience for this type of work any more, I really enjoyed the read, and it took me back to the time when I read a lot in this genre. (I also stayed up way too late one night finishing it.)
The book is a sci-fi fantasy piece, which reminded me a great deal of the kind of books I read in late grade school to middle school years (quite a while ago, I’ll add). It struck me as having tones and flavors from books I loved: the Danny Dunn series, The Mad Scientist’s Club (yes, I realize how that dates me), and others from that era, mixed with touches of Andre Norton and JK Rowling.
It is a nice, PG rated romp mixing science and fantasy with characters you can care about and a story which will draw you in. At the book’s end, I found myself wanting more, the sure sign of a good read, all the more so for my not reading fiction any more.
I think it is an outstanding first novel, and I am looking forward to his next one.
If you like this genre, or know someone who does, I don’t think you can go wrong here.
I enjoy all types of books that allow me ponder diverse possibilities and stretch my imagination - mysteries, history, science, novels, thrillers, discourses on design, technology and other sundry topics.
“Thomas Holland and the Prophecy of Elfhaven” kept me absorbed in this thrilling adventure from the prologue to the concluding feast and has me eagerly anticipating the next installment by this author. It's a keeper!
Please hurry with the next story!
