Thank you for reading my stories. I would appreciate if you could take a few minutes to leave an honest review detailing a few points that you liked and disliked about each one.
I am a CAD drafter in Saratoga, Wyoming. I enjoy fly fishing, camping, and all manner of outdoor activities. I own rental properties and a small sporting goods shop called Gold Hill Bushcraft. I am a longstanding member of the local “Writers of the Valley” Writers group.
All my writing starts out as short stories that quickly take on a life of their own. I have a few other ideas for more science fiction short stories and will publish them here as they mature.

As I started this book I thought what a great story this was going to be, and good story-telling. But the style changed. Richov and Alastor are attacked by assassins and Magic, and Alastor disappears. Richov, who was hiding his magic abilities knows now that his life is in danger and there is a great mystery. The story proceeds into more magic and lots of fantasy, but it soon starts losing this reader. The story is told more and more from a "thousand foot view" such as: "There was a great battle, thousands were killed and one of too many characters is now in big trouble." I didn't feel I could relate to the multitude of characters who appeared and disappeared throughout the story. The scenes were too high level with too many shallow characters and I did not feel any connection to what was happening. I would prefer the author show me what is happening rather than telling at a high level. Fewer scenes, but with more detail and character development would have held my attention better. This is probably an average fantasy story for fans of the genre. Give the sample a try and see what you think.
