The Aeolian Master Book One Revival [NOOK Book]

Overview

It could have been considered a whirlwind event, but it was more like a hurricane of circumstances and political intrigue that brought him to the Galaef. No one at this level of government would take an interest in the myth of the Aeolian Master, unless there was some nefarious subplot lurking just below the surface. But why had they involved him--a nobody from an insignificant planet?

    Excellent but meandering plot

    Plot has issues. I found myself more interested in the Galactic Swordman than in Em. The books namesake had very little character development while some of the other non-critical characters had a significant amount. I ended up skipping pages of the archane details of players introduced in last half of the story. Maybe i will regret it, but it isn't likely. Other than that minor detail, the story has been very engaging and hard to put down. Definitely a good read.

    Can't really rate it, since I couldn't finish it.

    Ugh. Harkens back to the bad old days of misogynistic scifi with the bosomy babes on the cover screaming as the bug-eyed monster looms and the hero with his sinewy thews approaches to rescue her. Badly plotted, badly written, and not even worth what I paid for it - which was nothing.

    Pretty good but some flaws in the main character and storyline. Beggining through mid-ending good, but didnt like the ending.

    Interesting story, but waaaay too long. -Town Crier

    First, this book could easily lose 40% or more and be much better paced, and for overall pleasure to read. The scene with the "Run", for example, should have been exciting and fast-paced, but was dragged out way past the point of tedium. The author needs to do a lot more research on how government bureaucracies run, and how the military operates. Also, the Galeaf was inconsistant in character, and should definitely not have been treated as a politician, but as a benign dictator. I would further recommend that the author read up on effective leadership techniques to better write for the leader of two million worlds. Also, the primary character is just a little too far-fetched. Tone him down and he would be alot more believable. And all these super-athletes just showing up willy-nilly stretches believability past its limit. So, okay read, with too much detail, poorly researched, and deus ex machina'd past believability.

    Could have been better

    The summary was quite misleading since the story was mostly about Ben than Em. There was not much character development and some parts just seemed to go on and on. I ended up having to skip many of the sections whie rolling my eyes. There were also a lot of minor gramatical errors, so small that some may not notice but it got to me after seeing these mistakes over and over again. I did enjoy the many plot twists. That is what kept me reading till the end. Otherwise, this was a good book. I read it to the end but I am not sure if I am going to continue the series.

    I recommend this book for boring rainy days.

    Not bad, but horribly slow

    The characters are shallow, the action is tedious, and there are abrupt changes in action that are horribly confusing.

    This book would be better if it lost about five hundred pages.

    Not Bad - This one I will keep

    Interesting but just a bit too much "Good Luck"
    for characters. One whole section could be a separate short story. Lot of action but seemingly one sided and predictable.
    That said, I enjoyed this book and would not have any qualms about reading any books that may follow.

    Lots of action but somewhat juvenile

    Thiis is far too long and seemingly written for young teens... but not so much for adults.

    There is way too much repetition and zero subtlety.

    Interesting

    The book introduces the reader to a vast future with an intriguing history. Unfortunately there are also many typos and grammatical errors that tended to break the immersion. Well worth the read for free, but I was not interested enough to pay for the rest of the series.
