Crown of Vengeance + Giveaway




For Janus Roland, Erika Laesig, Mershad Shahab, Logan, Ryan, Derek, Lee Chan and several others, there lives will never be the same. Everyone was attending to their every day lives and going about their business when a mysterious mist rolls in. When the mist clears, everyone finds that they had been transported to a strange new land. There they will meet dangerous enemies as well as make some new friends.

Crown of Vengeance is book one in the Fires in Eden. A new series by author Stephen Zimmer. This book started out a little slow for me but it quickly progressed into an exciting and fantastic reading adventure. I wasn’t really interested in every move that the characters made at the beginning. What I liked the most was when the story would switch there would be a break with the name of the character whose turn it was. This I found nice as there were so many different characters, I was afraid that I would become lost and by doing it this way, I did not become lost but was able to focus on what was happening at that moment and got to know the characters better.

The illustrations that Matthew Perry did were wonderful. Mr. Perry is very talented. He helped bring the story to life. For me to say so many great things about a fantasy book is an accomplishment as these types of books used to be towards the bottom on my list that I was willing to read. This book with the help of Mr. Zimmer has restored my faith that fantasy makes for some thrilling reading.
