The Pelagius Game - Book One: Valstain

A new fan here!
This is a fascinating religious Fantasy. I very much appreciated the fact that the author took the time to craft a good story that made sense. I never had the feeling that any of the characters were contrived or cliched even thought the good vs evil and God vs Satan was the thematic premise.
The research the author did with setting was obvious in the narrative and the novel itself is well written and well edited. I appreciated the fact the the author got right down to business without three chapters of setting description.
While this is a longer book than I normally read (I usually read short mysteries) the pacing and the dialogue was just right. I never felt like there was a boring middle to get through.
I could easily recommend this book to any Fantasy reader. Adding R.J. Jerome to my lists of favorites here as I would certainly read this author again.

I have read a lot of erotica and erotic poetry and this one goes on my favorites shelf. It's well-written with a quick and dirty feel and yet you're not really involved because of the voyeuristic way it was written. Sometimes you're privy to a scene happening in the moment and other times you're reading about something that happened long ago or something wished for. Never a dull moment in the collection!
Highly recommended read if you like dark, erotic poetry.

This is my first book by this author and I do have to recommend it. This was a well-crafted thriller from start to finish. I really didn't want it to end but I couldn't put it down. There are some strong themes in the book like racism and abuse and they were handled superbly by the author, in my opinion. Recommended read!
