    Unique Fantasy.

    After reading, I believe Shadow’s Rise belongs in the ranks with some of the genre’s most popular titles. This book offers a unique blend of traditional fantasy with Eastern philosophy and martial arts. The author provides a very descriptive narrative that allowed me to fully visualize the scenery and story.

    Once the action started in earnest and especially after the main character, Yip, meets the other members of “the Four” I had a hard time pulling myself away, sneaking a paragraph or two in whenever I could find a minute (even a couple times when stuck in traffic – the wonders of having a book on your phone). The banter amongst the members of the party, especially Slate and Wrindanneth reminds me of the wisecracks that fly around when I’m with my closest friends.

    All in all, I thought this was an excellent first offering, and, upon finishing, I quickly purchased and began reading the second book of the trilogy, Shadow’s Descent.

    Definitely, Shadow's Rise should be on your must read list! The detailed descriptions within this book are exquisite. The vivid imagery allows you to go to the world Ea'ae and travel with Yip and his new found companions throughout their adventures. You will not regret reading Shadow's Rise-Return of the Cabal!

    This trilogy is wonderful... a Lord of the Rings enlightenment adventure.

    I highly recommend the series to all fantasy fans. The originality of the world, the humor of the dialogue, and the quality of the writing immerse the reader in a place you'll want to visit again and again!
