I first read the science fiction story on Bypass Gemini and informed the writer that it was a great story. He was so kind to reply on my e-mail and informed me on the free download of 'The Book of Deacon'. After reading this one I immediately bought the two next books of the trilogy. I'm currenly in the last 40 pages and still in the dark how it will end! A fan from Belgium.

I read book of deacon as a free download. I actually went and bought this and battle because I wanted to know how it would turn out. I thought it was a great book especially the conflict between ether and ivy. Reminds me of my daughters.

Review by: Charles Kravetz on Aug. 29, 2012 :
This is the second book of the Book of Deacon series. If you have not read the first book, I highly recommend it. It will make understanding the story so much easier. Myranda Celeste did not know how much she could do until a short time ago. Now, she finally understands and decides that her goal is to unite the Chosen, 5 heroes that will save her world.

I enjoyed this book as much as the first book. The author has done a great job of mixing the possibility of great wars with the fantasy of magic and wizardry. The twists and turns of this book left me gasping at times, and swearing at the author. I believe this book lives up to the title, and stays true to the series. Since he was able to immerse me so thoroughly in the story at times, I can easily recommend this book to all readers, young and old. If you enjoy fantasy and science fiction, this book will keep you happy.

I finished the free first book and couldn't stop there. I love the series and have finished all three books. The story plus the price make this a great buy, but the story is worth much more. It has everything! Dragons, wizzards, Elves, gods, demons, traitors, and much more. Read the first book and you will see you have to finish the series.

Review by: The Owl on May 14, 2012 :
The story is great, but not very different from other fantasy stories (some times you are able do guess what it is going to happen many pages before it happens).
Furthermore I would like to point out how the three books (Book of Deacon, Great Convergence and Battle of Verril) are, in fact one book. I do not really like when a book end and some characters are left hanging from a cliff or seemingly dead, when it is obvious that they are not going to die...

Review by: Melinda Le Baron on May 07, 2012 :
In The Great Convergence we start up directly where we left off in the first book, The Book of Deacon. We left Myranda following Lain out of the cave at Entwell hoping to convince him to stop the war because he had been shown to be one of the five Chosen. And the prophesy said that the five Chosen would end the war, but Lain wants nothing to do with it. Myranda has decided that it is her mission in life to get him to take on his responsibility even if it kills her. So she and Myn, her dragon, track him by means of one of his teeth that she knocked out in a fight. And now the the story starts really gets moving.

We have new important characters including the Northern Alliance Generals Bagu, and Epidime. We have the malthrope Ivy, the business partner Desmeres, the mystic Chosen Ether, and the continuing importance of the wizard Deacon. All these characters leap off the page in technicolor, fully realized, life. Not only that, but each character, not just the main one, goes through hard won personal development - growing and maturing into someone substantially different than the original character. Whether through hardship, love, loss, loneliness, or other factors, they all come out the other side changed by their ordeals, stronger people for the experience though some definitely have scars. This is characterization at its' finest.

The pace of the book is break-neck. It leaves little room for breath as you rip the pages by. You are completely engrossed in the story of Myranda, Lain, Ether and Ivy that there is no room for anything else. I read the book in a single afternoon. I didn't even stop for phone calls. The transitions are seamless as the story is fairly linear, hopping from our heroes to the Northern Alliance Generals and back with no confusion.

There is so much exciting in this story that comes about. There are dragoyles, magic battles, near men, poison breath, magic crystals, evil Generals, mutant beasts, mining scams, hide outs, much running and hiding, a lot of hunting, violin playing, mind raping, aerial battles, magical wound healing, magical swords, evil halbards, and possession. The ending comes at a time that is natural to break off the story, but it still surprised me, as I hadn't once looked up from the book since I started it. I was disappointed that it was over, but then I remembered that I already bought book three.

I would whole heatedly recommend this book to anyone who like epic fantasy, magic, historical warfare, or just a thumping good read. Also, all you students of human nature, this one's a gem. Don't miss this or the first one. I'm on to book three! Yahoo!

Review by: John H. Carroll on March 05, 2012 :
An excellent sequel and I can't wait to get to the third. I don't like that the baddies seem invincible and hope that the good guys start to have some successes!

Like the first book, the head hopping is a bit disconcerting where the viewpoint switches from one character to the next between paragraphs, but I'm getting used to it.

The first book in the series, The Book of Deacon, and this book, The Great Convergence, are truly two of the best books that I have read in a very long time!!! I could not put them down until I got to the end!!! Extremely capturing storyline and characters will keep you entertained and make you feel like you are in the story with them! I absolutely can not wait for the last book to come out!!!! Great Work!!!

Review by: Lilithee on Feb. 10, 2011 :
Excellent! I read the first book and just had to buy the second. This is the best book I have read in a long time. I cannot wait to see how this story ends! Very original, very elaborate, I absolutely love this writer's style. I will be back the minute the last book is out. I see this story playing out in my head like a movie. So much care is put into each character and each nuance, that even though it is set in another world it feels so real and so relevant.
Thank you so much, Joseph Lallo, You are truly talented!
