- Ripples in an Emerald Sea
on Dec. 30, 2012
Brilliant!! I've not done anything else from getting this. Could hardly put it down and didn't want it to end. Several plot twists caught me by surprise and the pace got faster and faster. I found the atmosphere to be amazing, the world and inventions are cool and believable. The writing style is very strong, and I fell in love with the main character, Lya, and especially liked how she was fleshed out and developed. Best of all it's so original, I can see it setting new standards for the genre and becoming a movie. Needs a better cover!!. When is the shadowlord out?

Superb!! This book has a good simple prose that flows very well. It made me feel like, Lucas, the main character who is the narrator was telling me his story. Lucas's story is deeply moving and pushes emotional buttons continuously. I would have liked an evolution in the language to match the development of the character and towards the middle of the book descriptions of Lucas's emotions had not changed or developed. That was kind of disappointing, but these are trivial gripes about a very well told story. Definitely worth reading.
