  • Elegy: Book 1 of the Arbiter Codex on Sep. 18, 2011

    Picked this up in a Library Thing giveaway and had no idea what to expect. It's always tough to get into a new fantasy world that you don't know anything about, especially when it is by a new author. Luckily, Elegy:The Arbiter Codex by Christopher Kellen, was a really solid read. While he did kind of toss the reader into the deep end with the start of the story, he did a great job in detailing the world and characters. At no time was I lost or confused by the rules he set up or the story. I really enjoyed it and hope he puts out another book in the series soon!
  • The Corpse King on Sep. 30, 2011

    Loved this story. I read it after I had already read the novel, Elegy, which made it more interesting for me, I think. It was great to read about D'Arden before he became a full Arbiter. Solid fantasy short for fans of good epic fantasy stories. Can't wait to read more from the author!
  • Fire: The Collapse on June 14, 2012

    I received a copy of this through a giveaway on Librarything. Technically, the author writes very well. Unfortunately, the story he chose to tell was, in my opinion, a bit iffy. It jumps around a lot - each chapter is a new character/story/setting and those characters/stories/settings don't always pay off. Some of the characters have a ton of build up and then are killed off quickly or are forgotten. The main problem with this book is that it was used to lay the background for future books and wasn't a complete story unto itself. There was little to no point in the book being released on its own. It's sad to see something that was well-written that just isn't worth reading.
