Rated 5.00/5 based on 5 reviews
For years, the truth has been concealed from Grace, masked cleverly by coercion, denial, fanciful stories, and make believe. More

About Patti Roberts

I love the medieval/fantasy genre so on any given day you can usually find me sitting at my desk in front of my laptop pounding away at the keys writing another chapter in the Paradox series of supporting indie authors. I also design book covers for Authors - That would be a run of the mill kinda day for me! Bringing fantasy worlds - the Ancient and the new to life...

A packet of Cruskits and a cup of green tea, that is now at room temperature, is sitting on the desk beside me. There is also a mass of USB cables, my kindle, notepads, bills to be paid, bills to be filed and a printer that is forever running out of ink. Sound familiar?

In front of me are three cork boards featuring pin ups of my characters faces and characteristics including eye colour, hair colour, age, height, ability....etc etc.

On most days I have to remind myself to eat and drink. I Should be thinner!!!

Review by: Pinky Pollock on Dec. 13, 2013 :
Regular readers of my blog will know that I am a BIG BIG fan of Patti Roberts, so when I was given the opportunity to be one of the first people to read the next instalment in the Paradox Series, I jumped at the chance.

In true Patti Roberts style, we are bombarded with a visual feast, with detail beyond imagining. You will find yourself drawn into the ancient world, the Bulgardi, Grigori, the Bakhna Rakhna people and others, as their story is woven seamlessly into Grace's.

In Equilibrium, we continue with the story of Grace, but now thing have gotten real. Grace has been told some of the truth about those around her and just who she is.

Juliette does not play as big a part of the story in Equilibrium, as she did in Bound By Blood, and I felt a kind of loss at her lack of presence. However, there are still a lot of things for Grace to discover and I can't wait to find out what happens next.

Review by: Ella Medler on Dec. 13, 2013 :
The Paradox saga continues with an impressive twist in the tale. Dark forces are at play and there’s no respite for the guardians and protectors. Grace takes a few more steps towards learning about her legacy, but her impetuousness lands her in the path of danger yet again.

I have been watching out for new releases in this series and I can honestly say this is the best episode so far. Absolutely love the world in which the action takes place, the richness and diversity of characters, the beautiful descriptions and the depth of emotion. Not for the first time, I found myself moved to tears reading scenes written by this amazing author.

I can see how easy it would be to transfer these books into a YA serial for television, and I’m not ashamed to say I would watch it, too, though I’m far out of the age range. Marvel’s Superheroes comes to mind, only on a much wider background, and with a breadth of characters far easier to stage-manage and adjust. The possibilities are endless – so much potential for entertainment! And with a classic battle between good and evil – some overt, some discreet or merely hinted at – this is a winning format that simply can’t go wrong.

Keep it going, Patti Roberts!

I was given this book in return for an honest review, and HONESTLY this is a brilliant book, the best of the whole Paradox Series so far. Everything is coming together, and I was like, OHHH that's who that is, or OHHH that's why that happened. Everything is making sense and I love it. The ending was a REAL JAW DROPPER, I still can't believe it, and now am desperate for the next book to see what happens! Not only is the story epic, I couldn't put the book down until I finished it, but Patti Robert's way of telling a tale, setting the scene, it's just amazing. The people, the places, she describes them so well that you can picture them perfectly in your mind, you become a part of the scene. It's amazing. I have nothing but good things to say about Patti Roberts and all of her books. I recommend you read this and ALL her books, you won't be disappointed!

Paradox series book 4
Equilibrium
Patti Roberts

We will start of with 5 hearts out of 5
I was given this book as an arc for an honest review , so let's begin
This book has been worth the wait and I little clue I think the best so far ( shh wink )
There are questions answered that we're left hanging there that piece everything tightly together
There are roller coaster moments and a few omg in there
The best is the cliffhanger even though I hate these this I didn't see coming so that makes it one I love .
I hate books I can see myself where it's going I love unexpected turns
Patti hurry up and write the next please I can't wait 6 months a year for book 5

Review by: Tabitha Ormiston-Smith on Dec. 07, 2013 :
I enjoyed this book very much. It's fast-paced and full of action.

One of the things I particularly enjoy about this author's work is its the visual quality; Roberts is brilliant at descriptive writing, you can see the colours, smell the smells. This series is well designed with a rich background. A less meticulous writer could have written the story without bothering to create in detail the beautiful, civilised Bakhna Rakhna people, the mysterious Atnangkers, and so on - but every corner is filled with exquisite detail in Roberts' work.
The other thing I really love about Roberts is her villians. She has a wonderfully light touch with them. You see the depths of evil, but you see it with a smile - there's always a leavening fillip of humour to offset the dark.

The only criticism I have of this fourth book is that it stops rather than ending - in my opinion a novel ought to stand alone as a completely self-contained thing. However, readers of today's series will be well accustomed to the series as serial, so I doubt if this will be a problem for most readers.
