Today, we are featuring a fantasy novel in our book spotlight.  Check out Lightbringers:  The Age of Myths and Legends, learn about the author and enter for a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card in the book tour giveaway at the end of this post.

Lightbringers:
The Age of Myths and Legends
by David Price
Genre: Fantasy

What if all the gods of the earth once existed? Long ago a superior race once came to earth and became humanity’s gods. The story is set on a post cataclysmic earth. Technology has vanished and been replaced by magick. Myths and monsters once again roam the land.


Blending H. P. Lovecraft’s mythos, with the numerous mythologies of the earth created a rich mythic landscape. Two groups of gods once descended on the earth, Lovecraft’s horrific alien, inhuman beings and the superior, god-like race, known as the Watchers, (the Elder Gods described by August Derleth).

Lightbringers is a Grimdark Fantasy set on a dying earth, twenty thousand years from now. The stars are right and the Great Old One asleep at the bottom of the world finally stirs in his terrible slumber. One reluctant hero, a half-breed child of the Elder gods, and his companions set out on a globe-spanning quest, populated by creatures of myth and beings of legend, to save the Earth from the evil that threatens to destroy it.

***Reviews***

Fascinating, funny and paced to please, LIGHTBRINGERS shines.” — Steven L. Shrewsbury, Author of PHILISTINE, OVERKILL, WITHIN and co-author of KING OF THE BASTARDS (with Brian Keene) and BAD MAGICK (with Nate Southard)

Cathadeus Book Review & Giveaway


We read a lot of young adult, fantasy books in our corner of the world. This morning, I am excited to share my review of Cathadeus, the first book in The Walking Gates series by Jeff J. Peters.  Check out my review, learn about the author and enter for a chance to win a prize in the book tour giveaway at the end of this post!

Book Title: Cathadeus (Book One of the Walking Gates)
Author: Jeff J. Peters
Category: YA Fiction, 344 pages
Genre: Fantasy

About the Book

It has been six hundred years since the Alchemists fused together men and beasts to form strong, mindless slaves. Now, their most vicious creations have attacked the mystical Walking Gates, slaughtering their Keepers and isolating their cities. Wounded in the brutal attack, Braxton Prinn’s mother is on the verge of death and he makes a desperate journey to find the reclusive elven master who can save her. But when he discovers an ancient magic, Brax is caught up in an even greater struggle and soon finds himself hunted for his power. Drawn into the chaos of an impending war and pursued by enemies on all sides, Brax must fight to save his mother and her race from slipping into darkness. Though his untamed magic may be the greatest threat of all . . .




My Review:

Peters Creates a Wonderful Introduction to the Series.  The author pays a great deal of attention to detail as he creates his fictional world, develops his characters, and creates novel's storyline--but, readers will never feel overwhelmed.  The novel, the settings and the characters develop over time in such an easy to read, easy to understand fashion that readers are drawn into the world with characters as they learn and explore--and experience the scenes. 
Readers will be Hooked on the Series and Its Characters.  This novel introduces readers to a lot of characters, a lot of fantasy-world development and a number of twists and turns.  Initially, it took a few chapters for me to settle into the novel's setting and flow--but, once I settled in, I was "in" the novel's world.  I became invested in the characters and their stories--I became attached to the fantasy world and found myself disappointed when the story ended. 

Would I recommend Cathadeus? I enjoy young adult fantasy novels--and this one may be my latest favorite.  The novel does contain some pretty violent scenes--with some rather graphic depictions.  While the readability is suitable for younger, young adults--I would recommend it for upper middle school ages through adults.  I do think both young adults and older adults are equally able to enjoy this novel's offerings.  I became attached to the characters, I was so caught up in the story that I read the book from start to finish in just a few evenings--and I am really looking forward to reading more from the author and the series.


What Other Readers are Saying about Cathadeus:

“Jeff J. Peters’ strong cinematic writing style allowed me to easily visualize the story and feel that I was right there alongside the characters.”
- Alison W.

“Jeff J. Peters’ writing is so smooth and easy to read – I can’t tell you how much of a pleasure it was…and how quickly you end up being drawn into the story because of it.”
- Amanda R.

“Cathadeus is the best kind of fantasy story - you get to learn along with a flawed main character while you get lost in a richly designed world. You can’t help but keep reading. A cleanly written pairing of characters you wish you could spend more time with and an enthralling world built around them. Cathadeus is the kind of story that plays perfectly off of your imagination, with characters grounded in reality to make it feel like you could really be there.”
- Ryan N.

“Jeff J. Peters definitely has storytelling skills...The story stayed on my mind when I wasn’t reading it. Young readers will be drawn in this imaginative story, while they relate to Braxton’s struggles with temper, insecurity, and young love. Cathadeus is dramatic, with an anxious tone—at times bleak, as the story keeps you wondering until the final battle if good will prevail.”
- Elizabeth C.
