I am re-reading the epic fantasy novel written by my son Rob. The first chapter is one of the most gripping introductions I have ever read in a fantasy novel. It really pulled me into the story. Then, there is continuous action, with an interesting cast of characters: Morganna: the orphaned child mage, Corr: the mage who is her rescuer and mentor, Loren: the swordsman protector, Zac: the young officer who sees the rightness of her cause but is bound to follow orders, Kharak: the bear-like warrior devoted to Morganna; and on the opposing side, the Green Queen: a powerful mage with a thirst to become a god at any cost, Arios: her general and champion, an imprisoned god of destruction, and a twisted and corrupted army.
Rob has put together an engaging novel, that I find to be a real page-turner. I have recently read the "Divergent" series and the first two books of the "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" and I find "The God Chronicles" compares very favorably with both, but is more of adult fiction than juvenile fiction.
I like reading the paper version, but it is also available as an inexpensive e-book for about $4 from Chapters Indigo.
