Amazon Review: The Young Guardians and the Genesis Spell



The first volume of my series, The Young Guardians and the Genesis Spell, has received the following five star review:

“This is an impressive book. I enjoyed reading it because the author is a gifted storyteller who has woven together a captivating and imaginative storyline. It did not take me long to read it, as I wanted to know what was going to happen next.

It is a fantastic tale of 5 teenagers whose lives are turned upside-down by the appearance of an extra-terrestrial being. The dialog is authentic and fast paced, and the writing is smooth and easy to digest. The story ends in a final confrontation between the forces of good and evil that will leave the reader looking forward to the author’s next work.

The best description of the book comes from the Author’s autobiographical pen. The author says that he and his friends, when in high school, always wondered what it would be like to be a superhero team and have super powers. He decided to survey his friends on what kind of powers they would like to have to fulfill their dream of saving the world and protecting the innocent. He says he based the super-villain on the bullies who harassed him at school. His book is full of “so cool” super-heroes as his imagination comes to life before your eyes.

The main character is Patrick, a young man who did not yet fully understand the ways of the world. He was too unaware to know the he was entering the years in which his choices would affect the outcome of his entire life. His teen years were important times. That is because his curiosity and adolescent experience might cause him to make either the biggest mistake of his life, or the biggest difference in the world.

In this book, the forces of light and darkness collide. It is an eternal story. It is a story that claims that since the dawn of time, the universe and its numerous realities have been haunted by the ghosts of its two sides. In this struggle there are two sides. For those who are righteous and benevolent, they follow the warm influence of light, willing to make their world a better place.

On the other side there are those who are malevolent and unforgiving. They claim that the forces of good are weak and will soon belong to the powers of darkness. That will happen when the skies shall darken, every soul will be devoured by fire, and the power of light shall be eclipsed, never to shine again. These are the ones who are trained by the seductive power of darkness, hoping to amass as much power for themselves as possible.

It is an endless battle that takes place in the Universe. Every second, each side struggles to acquire the most followers. This is an eternal story, traveling deep into the recent past, in which the powers of light and darkness converge.

The big questions is: who will triumph in this struggle?”

  1. Sounds pretty interesting! So this is inspired based on you and your friends? That’s a great concept! Did you do the artwork as well or did someone else?

    Thank you for the “like” on my first blog post by the way!

      1. Would love to–watching your interview right now. Really nice hearing you and what you have to say–my mom was a special ed teacher for thirty years and has had a lot of experience with kids with autism and asperger’s

  2. What an innovative idea to base the heroes and powers on you and your friends and the powers! I am so sorry that you suffered at the hands of bullies, but I commend you for channeling those horrible experiences into something creative. Congratulations on receiving such a glowing review! πŸ™‚

  3. Cool concept! I actually want to write a superhero story too but I feel a little bit overwhelmed because it’s a whole new universe, an alternate earth. Reading this just inspired me to keep thinking about it.

  4. Hey thanks so much for dropping by my childrens book site πŸ™‚ I used to make tons of comic books too when I was in school and am now rekindling the passion by making a childrens book for my son. I wanted to ask if you have considered selling your book as an ebook for Amazon Kindle or iBook. SInce you have the art all done I would think you are halfway there. If not maybe even further! I plan to publish my book this way and I guess I’m just sharing the idea. Thanks again!

  5. Congratulations on getting published! I agree with so many of the commenters who are so impressed with your accomplishments. Is your interest in science fiction due to anything in particular? I’m sorry if you’ve answered this somewhere else.

    1. In all honesty, I do not know why I am so interested in science fiction. I guess I am fascinated with the potential applications science can achieve. When you think about it, with how fast technology is advancing, concepts that were science fiction are now becoming real.
