white fire war Reviews
A corridor exists between two worlds, Garatayne and Damerya; both suffering under the reign of cruel and evil leaders. Exiled on the Island of Briars in Garatayne, the Dragoons live in constant fear of the Stefanites, who slaughtered many of their people and stole away their weapons and their rights. On the world of Damerya, the red-eyed Baek Tayon leader Lanaya, who has an insatiable appetite for physical abuse and conquer, holds her sister Taxamia prisoner.On Garatayne, Dragoon Captain Jack Cheshire visits friend, Ralley Quenn, who's been tormented by bouts of illness and dreams about a brown-skinned girl from another world, with whom he feels a strange intimate connection. He experiences manic episodes of high-energy and super-competence where he feels compelled to act followed by periods of mental weakness and lethargy. That particular night, Quenn feels compelled to rush to the faerie mound on the Guardian's land. In his mind, he's experiencing everything that's happening to the mysterious girl and knows she's suffering tremendously. When they reach the mound, he and Jack are both teleported via the obelisk to the world of Damerya. But not before they first have a skirmish with Grenadier Aubren, Jack's long-time rival.Bar-owner Mother Henne tells constable, Ed Bocke she's seen a red-eyed demon on the island, on a faerie mound on the Guardian's land. Bocke, a club-footed cripple, has been ridiculed most of his life and is now the constable, assigned to work for Guardian Crandolph. He rushes from the bar, determined to investigate. Witnessing Jack and Ralley's disappearance in a flash of white light, Bocke finds himself captive of the Guardian, who tries to imprint the mind of the demon, Krotan, on him and make him into a zombie, much like another man, Mott, whose face and body became a decaying mass after his transformation. Young girl Julea takes pity on him and tries to help him.The author creates two worlds that feel believable and quickly draw the reader into the story. This thrilling sci fi adventure includes a compelling cast of heroes, heroines and villains, making me feel intimately involved in their plights. The chapters often end with cliff-hangers and jump from character to character, Sidney Sheldon style, making the reader eager to find out what happens next and learn if the character survives. I found some of the "Star-Wars like" combat flying scenes especially thrilling, when the space ship zoomed through canyons and over water and through jungle and I felt like I was on board myself. There is almost constant conflict and combat throughout the novel. The nail-biting suspense, accented by romantic elements and vivid descriptions, make it a fast paced and fun read. I enjoyed this book so much, I just purchased two more by this author.
The Nation-World of Graytayne has a Lord Protector empowered by the Stefanites who defeated the Queens forces and exiled them to the Isle of Briars. The ex-Queens men are depicted much as the Musketeers were though they are not permitted to arm in any fashion. The Lord Protectors men are referred to as Grenadiers and are portrayed as power abusing turn-keys always out to climb the ladder. A subplot on the island actually gives a hat nod to Lovecraft.Three obelisks and some ancient machinery aid in forming a link between Graytayne and another world that has a nation known as Damerya. The use of Aon science allows them to fly air ships amongst other things.It is a very involved story that I feel has a lot of the features that draw people to Steampunk though this is genre cast as such. There are four protagonists and two antagonist who all loan their points of view in the telling of this story. While that might be dizzying in some books it actually works out here.I liked this work for the quality of the story telling and the imagination unveiled. I’m giving it four out of five satisfaction units of your choice.http://www.amazon.com/White-Fire-War-...
I wasn't entirely sure what to make of this book when I first read it, but I was drawn into the story quickly and found it a satisfying and exhilarating ride! Jack is a musketeer type swashbuckling hero who accompanies his intellectual friend Ralley through a portal into another world where a woman from Ralley's dreams awaits along with a conflict that could destroy both their worlds!The writing has an old-fashioned quality to it which gives it a unique charm while the pacing and adventure quotient is very high, giving it the feel of a classic Edgar Rice Burrough's story or Doc Savage. It's not explicitly a YA book, but there is nothing objectionable in either the sex or violence department, so it is suitable for all ages. I just really loved the way the various characters were drawn with a few deft strokes and rather than being told who they are, they are revealed through their actions. I don't write many reviews, but when I saw that there were no others up here, I felt I should direct some attention to a really surprising and charming fantasy novel!
This book grew on me. I really wasn't sure when I started reading, there were some parts that were a little stilted and a few errors, but as I read on I enjoyed the story more and more.There are quite a few characters to get to grips with and some are a little stereotyped at times, but it was a good storyline. I became interested in the lives of the characters and could see where the story was going. There were some lovely detailed descriptions and it was easy to imagine the scenarios.The main premise is good against evil, but there are some overlaps in certain situations.A good read.
ConfusionConfusion in the story made me give it a three. fair storyGood carrottur . But it was hard to keep focused on the read
