Rezension zu "Silent City (Corin Hayes Book 1)" von G R Matthews

Great dystopian story!
JuliaOvor 3 Jahren

One of my favorite books this year!

This dystopian story takes place sometime in the future, when humanity has to live down in the oceans, as the surface is uninhabitable.

The main character is absolutely to my liking. I love his dry and dark humor, in all situations, and his dark side. A perfect "broken hero". You can't avoid being pulled on his side and root for him.

The story gripped me right from the first page, and didn't let me off the hook again.

The writing is perfectly fluent, so you can really dive into the story, without realizing you are reading. Instead you are there, on the bottom of the ocean. The world just seems so real.

I can only wholeheartedly recommend this story to anyone, be it fantasy, scifi or thriller fan! My only complaint - it's way too short!

Rezension zu "The Stone Road: Volume 1 (The Forbidden List)" von G R Matthews

Good Asian themed fantasy debut
JuliaOvor 3 Jahren

I picked up this book when I heard the words "Asian" and "fantasy" in one sentence. I've always loved Asian culture, and how very different it is from ours, so I couldn't resist. And I really love how he caught the bar of the culture so well, without the story becoming stale, or feeling like non fiction.

I really liked the two main characters - as they are on opposing sites, and Matthews manages to make you cheer for both of them. Depending on what part of the story you're in you will change your opinion of who's the bad guy, or if there really is a bad and a good guy at all. I really enjoyed that, as I hate "all black or white" stories.

The writing style was fluid and the plot interesting - and I fully intend to read the next one too sometime later.

There were a bit much typos in the story, nothing big, but it did annoy me at times. Also I would have wished for a bit more depth and complexity - and especially a bit more info about the magic used in the book. Though I hope that'll follow oh the later books :)

All in all a good four star book that kept me entertained throughout the story!
