Reviews of Delver Magic Book I: Sanctum's Breach by Jeff Inlo

Mary Blackwell reviewed 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.
