Elven Magic Reviews
STORY – UNINSPIREDWhere to even begin? This story is a mess, from its pacing to its core, there is little redeemable about the book, and for the egregious price of $3.63 (thank you KU!) we can hopefully save you the time and money if you were debating picking this up to see if it improves – it doesn’t. Now, we don’t do this to pick on the author, but to show what so many readers fear. This book is underwritten. Very little time seems to have been taken to put it together, as if it were created during a fever dream or a bad trip and the contents remained unexamined before publishing. To any author who thinks that editing is only for the professionals, it is not. Too little time was spent writing this book and it feels like we may have put more effort into reviewing it than the author did in creating it.WRITING AND FORMATTING – NEEDS IMPROVEMENTSadly, after the poorly conceived story, the poor writing and formatting seem like a slap in the face.LITERARY VALUE – INSIGNIFICANTIndeed, the whole thing is an incoherent mess and needs some serious TLC.OVERALL – NEEDS IMPROVEMENTSo, one may ask, why did we review this book? Well, with luck, we can inspire the author to go back and fix it. Given some elbow grease and time, this story could be readable, good even, but this happens all too often when young or inexperienced authors try to go it alone, without knowing that writing takes time, hard work, and dedication. We don’t mean that authors shouldn’t self-publish; we think they all should. What we mean is that one should not expect to put some words down on paper and call it a story, every skill should be honed, and to all hopeful authors out there, you need to practice, practice, and practice some more.
I don't like much to give low rating, but giving anything higher would be unfair for the great books I have read lately. I started this book last night and I almost gave up on the prologue, I pushed myself to finish it straight away because I knew that if I stopped I wouldn't go back to it. This book has a lot of potential, a lot of good ideas and miraculously the plot is coherent. The problem is that there are a lot of sentences that don't make any sense, and others that are so long without a single comma that you don't even remember what was at the beginning of it when you reach the end especially when the end doesn't even seem to be related. <-- I'm not even close to make it clear by example. This book reads more like pre-writing author's notes than like short stories. It would need to be developed in 3 or 4 books (full length novels) to allow a real understanding of the complexity of the world build in it and to at least properly introduce the characters, some who appear once, just for a two line dialogue. It was really difficult to connect to the characters due to the lack of emotion. I can't recommend this book to anyone.
