About Rilbur Skryler

An avid reader from a young age, I started branching out into writing years ago. I started with several rather ambitious stories that were probably doomed to failure to begin with, above and beyond the personal circumstances that lead to me abandoning writing for years.

Due to a chance overheard conversation while on the bus from school, an idea took root and I suddenly had the urge to write again. From there, my work has only grown -- and the future continues to look bright.

Currently, I'm getting back into the 'swing' of writing after a long break. After graduating college, I spent a long time as a programmer looking for a job, and in my case, depression and writing don't mix well.

Review by: aniram88 on Aug. 07, 2015 :
This story wasn't really what I expected. But not in a negative way. I mostly read gay romance/ fantasy, so the genre was what led me to this one. While this story isn't really focused on romance ( or the more intimate parts, like the stories I usually read), the main theme is definitively ''love''. The relationships and main characters are complicated and only while reading will they unravel before you. To overcome trials and tragedy and grow stronger afterwards or learn to live with them is as significant in this book as learning to trust and believe. Well, up to the middle of the story, there where parts were I had to fight to keep reading, because they seemed unrelevant and stretched to the interesting parts. The concept of ''magic'' or abilities is really interesting and after the first half I couldn't stop reading. The infinite fight between light and dark, god and devil never fascinated me more than in this story. Its not a story with a happily ever after but will leave you wanting to read more. I hope the ''sequel'' will show some of the characters I've come to love.

Review by: tcraig6 on May 20, 2013 :
The book was constantly moving with multiple views from different characters. Admittedly, prefer the focus of centering around one main character. However, it goes along with the underline theme of the story. "It takes more than one person to win a war." The characters are rich a fairly three dimensional. This is especially true with Jason. The author shows how Jason learns to balance his new life, love, and faith in the midst of constant tragedy.
****Warning for the soft hearten this can be a tear-jerkier at times****
I rated 4/5 only be because the author went out on a few unnecessary tangents with no real value to the story.
