Manifestation (Arcana Revived Volume One)Manifestation by Jason Cantrell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is a good example of the elements of writing coming together seamlessly. As far as fantasy goes, I could easily see this and any books that follow entering into epic territory. Without giving too much away, this whole book works to set up a powerful change coming over the world. I can’t wait to find out what happens next.

RadianceRadiance by Jason Cantrell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The book delivers exactly what it’s description promises. This short story is a sort of origin story for what I’m assuming is the main protagonist in the larger works, which I’ll definitely keep an eye out for. I recommend Radiance as a way to dip your toes in and test the waters of the world Jason Cantrell has created. And the premise is truly unique. I do wish I’d gotten to see a bit more character development (aside from the obvious), but with a short story, that’s hard to accomplish. That desire to get to know her better isn’t a bad thing, though, as it made me want to read the novel, when it comes.

Zeus is Dead by Micheal G. Munz (Book Review)

Zeus Is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient AdventureZeus Is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient Adventure by Michael G. Munz

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

With just under 500 pages, this book is a helluva lot longer than anything I’ve read recently, but the description looked promising so I gave it a shot. The basic structure is built like most books I’ve read, but that’s the only thing typical about it. “May I read your shirt in braille, Miss?” Gems like this one pop up throughout the book, and even at the end where many authors lose steam, Mr. Munz carries his humor all the way through. It’s definitely not a quick read, but each chapter offers great amusement on its own, and within the larger context of the story. The end of each chapter left me with a chuckle every time, and the introduction into the next did the same. Often, I’d read the next chapter’s intro just because, even when I knew I’d (sadly) have to put it down until my next reading opportunity. Well edited and with a great cover, Zeus is Dead clearly falls under the category of professionally produced e-books, this author is the real deal. Throughout the book the author is a visible narrator, but he does so in such a way that that in itself is also funny. The characters, though numerous, were easy to keep track of as individuals because the author treated them as such. Each character has clearly defined traits displayed throughout the text. With a humorous book like this, (imo) the author ran the risk of those characters becoming caricatures, but he deftly avoided gross exaggeration for the sake of effect, relying instead on his character development skills to bring them to life. I intend to read more from Michael G. Munz.
