Review by: Kristen Pham on July 14, 2013 : star star star star star
As a huge fan of classic high fantasy, I felt rewarded reading Genesis, the first book of the Prophecy Rock Series. T. Sae-Low has created a world that achieves the difficult task of making me feel like it could really exist, and a hero (Raden) that I related to and rooted for. I was really surprised to find that this is the author’s first novel, because it read like the novel of a more seasoned writer.

Sae-Low hooks you from chapter one with a story that is moving and different from other fantasy books I’ve read. Even though he uses classic fantasy concepts like prophecy and being chosen, he has a unique twist that makes his story feel fresh. In particular, his poetry and prophecies extremely well-written and sophisticated.

One of the other things that I particularly appreciated was the skillful, natural way that Sae-Low included female characters in his story. Not a token love interest, but powerful women, both good and morally questionable.

My only two nits with Genesis were that I wanted to see the romance aspect of the story be a little more rounded out with a few surprises, and to see the villain’s (Aric’s) character dialed back a little bit. At times he felt a bit cartoonish toward the beginning, though by the end he was pretty believable, though not very frightening. I’m hoping as the series continues that Aric continues to develop. It’s cool to see a character arc for the villain as well as the hero of the series, however, something that I haven’t seen done as much.

This story has the makings of an enjoyable epic that I intend to follow. I’m looking forward to seeing how Raden tackles the obstacles in his way, and am already hungry for the next book in the series.
