AMAZON UK REVIEW: NUMEN THE SLAYER

Here is a five star review Numen the Slayer received on Amazon UK:

“This is an easy read and a real page turner. The world the author has created and the rules that govern it are extremely well thought out and completely believable. There are some graphic descriptions of violence in places, so beware if you’re squeamish. If you like a tale of sword and sorcery, with more than a few nods to ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’, then this should definitely be your next read.”

AMAZON REVIEWS: NUMEN THE SLAYER

Here are some reviews Numen the Slayer received on Amazon:

“It’s a fine story told by someone who is familiar with the arms and armor of medieval times. The author is a member of the Society for Creative Anachronisms and seems to have taken the word “creative” to heart. It’s a “coming of age” story, starting out with a young man, somewhat sheltered by his father who is a Baron. The young man is suddenly cast into the world when his family is murdered by another noble who has great ambitions. His only weapon is an ancient sword that is the heirloom of his family. The sword is an asset, but also has a liability attached to it. The rest of the story is a series of challenges that forces him to grow up rapidly. The author has a fine imagination and can spin an acceptable fantasy.”

“The first good thing about this book is the cover. The dragon head, set against a flaming inferno, grabbed me the moment I saw it and is worth a solid star on its own. The story is a great fantasy classic – the true heir is uncovered and the evil ruler tries to prevent him taking his rightful place. There is the quintessential fantasy group of differing skilled friends who go forth to right a great wrong. There is plenty of intrigue and many battles. There is a wonderful magical sword and a powerful dragon ally. All the ingredients for a fabulous old-school fantasy.”

AMAZON REVIEW: THE YOUNG GUARDIANS AND THE GENESIS SPELL

The first volume of my series, The Young Guardians and the Genesis Spell, received the following review on Amazon:

“Grady’s books invite us into the mind of a science fiction lover. The characters are many and purposefully defined. Grady is a talented young man who obviously loves what he does. With time and experience his writing will mature and I expect to see his books around for a long time to come. Keep writing, Grady P. Brown! I am impressed by his bio and with what he has accomplished. I am still working through the second book. I love the descriptions of the characters and their traits rated on a numerical scale. Very inventive, and actually quite helpful.”

Wish me luck.

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?”
