5 out of 5 stars: You'll be glad you got this!!
Such a sweet and magical book. My boys (yes, boys!), 3 and 6 years, couldn't wait each night for the next few chapters. They asked in there were going to be any more! Recommending it to everyone!

5 out of 5 stars: A book that has left an lasting impression on me
I am by no means a literary critic, but I love a good story that pulls me in so that I feel invested in the character(s) of the story. I love a book that challenges the characters with situations that makes them grow. Because of that I completely enjoyed getting to know Zam and go on a journey with him through this book.
It's been a few months since I finished the book and I still have these images from the book that pop into my head and cause me rethink/reimagine the event that unfolded. And there are some characters (like Galwen), who, when I think about them, gives me the same feeling that I get when I think of long time friend I've had. There's a warmth and admiration, which is crazy because it's just a character in a book, but it is what it is :)
I wonder how long these images will stay with me. Some books I put down and don't think of again, but others have these metaphors that stalk me. I have a feeling that this book is of the latter.
One of things I miss now-a-days are virtuous characters. I'm not just talking about good people, but something more than good. Jimmy Stewart made an impression on me growing up because a lot of the people he portrayed were simple people with strong values (Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Harvey, It's a wonderful life). I liked reading about Zam because he's someone I could look up to....someone I could respect....someone who is pure and good. I guess I'm partial to stories where you put that type of person in a dark world....not just to see how he responds, but how the world does too.
Can't wait to read book 2.

5 out of 5 stars: Loved it
This story was simply inspiring! My oldest son and I read it together (he is 12 years old) and it not only held his attention, it had him asking questions about what we were reading. The bottom line is that there are fantastic lessons to learn in this story and I am looking forward to hearing more from this talented author

5 out of 5 stars: Can't put it down!!!
I was sitting in line at Sears waiting to get that 97 dollar TV and I didn't have anything to read or any money on my card. I'm a big fan of epic fantasy novels so I checked kindle and after searching a couple pages I came upon your short story. It intrigued me so I downloaded it and read the short story pretty quickly, but the bonus chapters sunk their hooks in me so deeply I couldn't put my phone down. Ultimately my phone ended up dying so I had to wait until I got home to read the rest, but now I can't read anything else till I finish that book, so I am eagerly waiting its release.
