I have to start this review by saying that I am generally not a die-hard fantasy novel fan. I’ve read Lord of the Rings and that’s about it.

So I read this book on a recommendation from a friend, and I was absolutely not disappointed! The book spends about 5-6 chapters building up the characters and plot, but after that, it’s pretty much non-stop action that leaves you continuously wanting more. The authors do such a good job of laying out the worlds of Eizenfeng and Ozeanchor and its people that you almost like you’re watching a great movie rather than reading great book.

The 2 things that I really appreciated about this was the modern vernacular used throughout the book and the fact that while it is a fantasy novel, and that the races of people introduced in the book are unique rather than traditional fantasy races like elves and dwarfs. That said, absolutely anyone could pick this book up and enjoy the story it tells, it’s not just another fantasy novel filled typical cliches and verbiage.
