HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
Oh this is good stuff but do pay attention as it is only a short book, a novella in size so a lot of information and characters seem to appear in rapid succession and these you do need to grasp who is who.
An opening scene and a the discovery by an exploration team of a prophecy told in pictures of what could be the end of the human race results in the guardians being formed. A band of protectors and watchers that secretly look for any sign that it is beginning. They are The Brotherhood. 800 years later and generation after generation have kept this society going, now their time has come. It just took one probe into a black hole to open unleash a festering evil that had been bound up to now, and it was hungry.
This is the debut novel of this author and he has arrived in style. The opening scene I would say to you read twice because there is so much information in these few pages that makes it easier to understand the connection between the two main characters in the story. It is very much a good versus evil type of read and thoroughly entertaining. There really isn’t a word wasted with the short chapters changing from character and scene to keep everything running together. Loved the very descriptive style and rapid changes that took place. Super ending.
I won this book in a competition at an online book launch party for another book. Thank you to Maxine and the Author for this, my prize.
HERE IS A LITTLE ABOUT THE AUTHOR
G M Sherwin was born and raised in a small village in West Yorkshire and still lives in the north of England with his wife, 3 children and 2 cat. It was while at school that he penned his first short story which gave him a taste for writing.
And it was a love of the Albert Einstein quote, ‘there comes a point in your life when you have to stop reading other people books and write your own’ which spurred him on to write his first book Immortalis.
When he isn’t working G M Sherwin enjoys spending time with his young family. And if he gets any time to himself he likes to relax with a good book and a glass of red wine. He is also a passionate film buff and loves anything out of the normal, the paranormal or sci-fi related.
