About Jeff Inlo

When I was young, I didn't enjoy reading, mostly because it was connected to some assignment at school. In the tenth grade of high school, however, I took an English class, Criminal and Detectives in Literature. I was assigned to read "And Then There Were None" by Agatha Christie. I finally understood what people meant when they said they could not put a book down. I explored more of Christie and learned that reading was more than just homework. I began sampling popular authors of the 1980s, and eventually moved to classics. I read "Treasure Island" and then the "Count of Monte Cristo." My sheer delight with these books led me to discover additional works. As I started to write my own books, I hoped I could create stories with positive messages that would allow a few readers to find enjoyment with my work, as I found pleasure with the books I had read. For those that have, I thank you for giving me the opportunity.

Review by: Mary Blackwell on July 26, 2014 :
A Delver lives to discover new things and so was the perfect choice to send out to find the source of the unusual quake, but he found much more than a disturbance in the ground. Following his journey we meet new creatures unknown to Humans, good and bad. Will the Delver and his group get on, reach their destination and complete their quest?

What I loved about this story is the very real embedding of the world and how different races interact and the introduction of totally new to me races. It felt so real and I got caught up in the story totally. It is a long book but I was still disappointed to find my journey over so I have been very happy to see more in the series.

There is a tiny need for editing with extraneous 'to' and 'the' appearing seldom and passed being used for past (or that may be American English). I only mention these because if not for these it would have been perfect.

I heartily recommend this book and for those put off by its' length I would say that you will reach the end much sooner than expected because the pace of the tale and the beautiful descriptions, in addition to the twists and surprises in the plot will have you missing your stop or missing sleep, depending on where you read.

Loved this first book of the series!!! The reading flowed nicely the descriptions were great and not overly done. The story line flowed easily and drew me in to become a part of the story. I love this book and will be downloading the rest of the series today!

Book on was really well written, though it did have a few downfalls. The plot seemed to swayed on one subject. Though the main point of the story is about the Sphere, it's really about the delver and his sword.

A truly wonderful magical sword that, though made by one species, awakens to it's full potential in another, giving him god like powers of premonition at times, and at others leaving me the reader grasping for understanding at to what is going on.

I truly enjoyed reading the first book and am looking forward to reading books two and three soon.

It's worth the time it takes to read it, couldn't put it down, and had a blast even though it had some decent sized plot holes.

The flow is wonderful through the land of Uton! While rooting for the good guys/gals I was almost depressed that I couldn't be there helping them. Loved every second spent in the pages of Sanctum's Breach.

This is the first book I have read by Jeff Inlo. I thought it was very good. I started the second in the series and was glad to see that there is a third. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes magic and fantasy books.

Another amazing book by Jeff! I read "When Do I See God?" and was blown away! I just finished Delver Magic I and am on Delver Magic II and can't say enough about this series! It's a fantastical cross between "Avatar", "Harry Potter", Wizard of Oz" and "Lord of the Rings". All wrapped up into one thrilling, captivating series...and yes, there is a Delver III, I just don't see it on here. All of his books are easy-reading, but you simply cannot put them down. I read them on my Nook and it literally goes everywhere with me...that way I don't have to miss a single word or wait until I get home to start the next one. This series would make a BLOCKBUSTER movie and I hope Steven Spielberg or James Cameron is paying attention because they really should jump right on this! Jeff is able to bring all his characters to life in ways you wouldn't believe...even the landscape and sky is right in front of your eyes in bold, brilliant detail! How he does it is beyond me, I'm just glad he does! You will NOT forget any of his characters and you'll find yourself wondering what they're up to long after you finish the books. You just have to remember, they are not real...but the product of a dazzling author's imagination. Keep going, Jeff! And Hollywood....PAY ATTENTION!
