Product description

Product Description

Thousands of feet below the surface world and tucked behind a waterfall lies a ceaseless juggernaut of commerce, the six tiers of the city working together to provide anything desired. Some come to Solypse for trade; others simply come to disappear. Though the descent to the city is treacherous and long, it is lucrative for those willing to brave the trek. Those who stay are bolder still: for in a city full of those who wish to be forgotten, the real rules are often made in the shadows.
With promises of wealth come promises of power. As evil brews beneath the city, clandestine power struggles between politicians, magicians, merchants, and assassins bring the city of Solypse to the brink of annihilation. With a temple unable to help and a council unwilling to save its own people, it is up to an exiled dwarf, a reluctant assassin, and a failed priest to save the city.

About the Author

Paul Neslusan grew up enchanted with the way that books could transport him anywhere. He began the Solypse series to try to create a world as immersive as the ones he loved while he was growing up. His goal is to create an epic fantasy world that is both appealing and immersive for all readers ages 15 to 150. He lives in Central Massachusetts with his extremely patient wife and three children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasy Adventure At Its Best! Jan. 5 2015
By Vision Quest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you loved The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings you are sure to love "The Depths."

I was totally immersed in the book within the first few pages. Instead of creating a new world in the far reaches of space, author Paul Neslusan creates a hidden city thousands of feet below the earth's surface.

Solypse is a city of layers, physical layers, spiritual and political layers. It is populated by dwarfs, elves, humans, magicians and more. And what is even more fascinating is that this is a novel of layers. The history of how Solypse came into being is slowly revealed at the same time as the layers of each of the main characters are peeled off to reveal the heroes hidden beneath.

The plot is complex and fast moving as we move back and forth between a small band of travelers on a trade mission, to the impending danger to the City of Solypse. As the travelers fight for survival on "the path," their backgrounds unfold. Pash is the powerless pawn of a domineering, ruthless father. The Temple priests are sending him on a mission to see if he can "come into his own." Larrik, a dwarf with a hidden past, has been sent to protect Path -- and Cillian, who has been ordered to accompany them is a master assassin.

As Solypse comes under attack by an unspeakably evil forces, it is up to these three to gather the resources that will save the city from total annihilation.

I loved the plot and the action, but most of all I loved the character development and the forging of relationships between groups of people who would not ordinarily become friends.

"Book ONE" would imply that Book Two is in the works, I have my fingers crossed that I don't have to wait too long!

5.0 out of 5 stars but I am so glad that I made an exception for this book Dec 14 2014

The fantasy genre is not something that I normally gravitate toward, but I am so glad that I made an exception for this book. The author constructed a completely unique and original setting for his story and then populated it with a great cast of expertly developed characters that the reader quickly becomes invested in. The story takes some completely unforeseen twists on the way to its wild conclusion and I genuinely enjoyed the journey. I am very glad to see that this book appears to be the first in a series. Can't wait for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth while reading of the genre. Jan. 8 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I admit, I've given the book 5 stars. If you read this review you might think why, but please hear me out. The book was a bit difficult to follow when I started reading it. With so many characters introduced in a chapter by chapter basis, I struggled to see the thread connecting them or the book really making any sense. But once the characters started to engage one another, the story truly took a life of its own. There were even a couple of moments that truly made me gasp aloud. Any book that can surprise me not once, but at least twice, deserves my highest accolades. I would highly recommend the book to anyone who enjoys a good read, especially of this genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! Can't wait to read more by Mr. Neslusan! Nov. 5 2015
By Brian D. Liebenow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book. I like world building and getting to experience new worlds in my mind while I'm reading and Paul did not disappoint with the setting of The Depths. I thought it was well imagined and he did a good job of alluding to the different races and creatures in his underground environment without getting too bogged down in the details. The novel had a good pace and I found myself turning the pages toward the end, waiting to see how the protagonists would fare. It was like going on a D&D campaign in an R.A. Salvatore inspired world.

This was an outstanding first novel by Mr. Neslusan, and I look forward to reading his forthcoming novels!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book! Nov. 1 2015
By Matthew Radosevich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For anyone seeking an incredible fantasy tale, I highly recommend this book. The characters are original and captivating. The plot is engaging and dramatic. The language is smart, coherent, and refined without being even a little bit boring. This is one of the only books I've read this year that has drawn me in from start to finish. The Depths manages to retain everything I love about fantasy without relying on overused cliches of the genre. Overall, I have one thing to say: trust me. You want to read this book.
