5.0 out of 5 stars Robbie May 26 2013
By Robbie - Published on Amazon.com
Not only did I thoroughly enjoy the book and following Luke and his adventure ! But I had the most joyful pleasure , here in Chattanooga to go watch one of the filming projects of the author , Rocky Perry . So exciting and just as if the characters jumped right out of the first novel , chapter 12 and sat there right before my very eyes .... Very exciting ! Well written and scripted and played out .

1.0 out of 5 stars Hard to get into Oct. 3 2013
By A Grafen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I really wanted to like this book. It had a promising concept and a solid blurb, but there's just too much in the first couple of chapters that I couldn't overlook.

The book starts out with a massive info-dump and a copious amount of tell rather than show. POV jumps erratically.

Trimming the paragraphs of information at the beginning (perhaps seeding that information throughout the book) and a solid edit would improve this book drastically.

The later books in the series might be better, but if I can't finish the first book why would I try?

3.0 out of 5 stars A fun tale harmed by poor writing May 30 2012
By R. Sundrud - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Luke, an elf whose wings are clipped, teams up with Omar to work his way out of the wretched Gates District and onto the high seas. This is a world of fantasy, where magic works and dwarves, centaurs, elves, and other types of original creatures abound. I give three stars to encourage a beginning writer, but for me it was two stars. I kept being bumped out of the story by the writing errors. For example, the point of view (POV) character is Luke, with whom we are supposed to identify. However, the author keeps moving into the head of other characters and letting us read their minds, which is a POV jump. Sentences are overblown: at 9%, "He turned and looked out the front doorway and saw the man they had come to know as Red Hook walking towards the inn" should be "He saw Red Hook walking towards the inn." At 10% Luke confronts a centaur guard and simply yells at him, whereupon the centaur cowers. Why? How does Luke know to do this? We are never told. At 12%, "The girl... was a welcome site." We get six pages of Riftkin rescuing a girl named Twil from the lizard men, but she betrays him without hesitation or reason. At 30% Luke gets a knife in the back deep enough to do organ damage or to cause death by loss of blood(his own words). Yet, without medical attention, he recovers and is soon gambling. I hate to pick, but at 35% "The server SAT down another small box [on the table]." Something "peaked his curiosity." That last error is very easily made (should be piqued) but a writer should know his craft like a mechanic knows his wrenches. Commas are badly mistreated in this novel, usually by their absence.

I apologize for the picky review. At $0.99, it's still a good buy for reading by the pool.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed the Adventure Dec 19 2011
By Janis Fowler - Published on Amazon.com

This is the first time I have read a book from this author and at first I thought that perhaps this was a young person writing with the repeat of wording from sentence to sentence however I have to admit I could not close my Kindle. I found the adventure very refreshing and exciting which I did not wish to leave for even a break....to sleep :)

I hope there are more like this from the author and will be on the lookout.

I wish to thank Rocky Perry for allowing a free copy to our Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Destined to become a classic June 4 2013
By Vickie McKeehan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story begins with a silver-skinned elf known as Luke Banderloft. Luke is injured and seeks refuge in a seedy part of town called the Gate District. He soon teams up early on with Omar, a down-on-his-luck Canarian. The action includes plenty of lizard men, dwarves and elves, trolls, ogres and even a centaur. As Luke and Omar encounter swordplay, foes and friends along the way, the sharp tale of fantasy keeps this from being anything but a typical story. The imaginative banter sets this apart from the norm. This is the first book in the fantasy adventure, destined to become a classic.
