We Don’t Plummet Out of the Sky Anymore

First of all, I have to be honest that I did not find the story to be one of my favorites. Having said that, the story was exceptionally well written on a professional level. Could just as easily ended up in a publication. There was nothing I could point too as having any flaws, unlike me who lime to break all kinds of writing rules - at least with my first book in the series I am writing. In fact, I wouldn't mind having just 10% of his writing ability. I think it was more about the techy stuff that gave me trouble.
Just seeing what he is capable of writing, is enough to keep my eyeballs open for what he might have instore for us next.
Thanks for the read!

It was an interesting read. Not as good as her Anna book, but interesting. I would have like to know what the character was thinking about the experience as it was happening. Like the family and old folks, or what the character thought about the location etc. Just a thought. Thanks.

I enjoyed the story, even with the few typos. Unexpected ending and not that bad. I was kind of hoping Dave and Cookie were going to become a do-gooder duo and fight against the bad guys, and hoping the story continued to another book or books. Keep this in mind Tom in the future. I would have purchased book 2 without a doubt.
Maps for The Morcyth Saga

Using the Kindle app on my iPad worked great. I was able to zoom in etc. It works for me. I like the map, it is simple and straight foreword. Nice. Any particular reason why you used that particular viewpoint for the story? Are all your books written that way? If not, which books are not. I would like to check it out. Thanks!
The Unsuspecting Mage: The Morcyth Saga Book One

I couldn't read more than four chapters. Seems like the story is in par with any good fantasy, but the viewpoint writing took the fun out of it for me. It's not the way I am used to reading with this type of book. I still highly recommend downloading and reading it. Brain obviously put a lot of time and effort to create the series. If you have no issues in the way he wrote the book, then get the whole series.
I give him four stars for story creation. written in the third person would have won him all five.
