It's seems that any fantasy story or series written must be compared to the impossibly high standards of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Once people get past the comparison, they can hopefully enjoy a really entertaining tale such as this. Jeff Inlo did a great job crafting an intriguing world with likeable fantasy characters both familiar (elves, dwarves) and uniquely unfamiliar (such as the well-designed race of delvers and cliff-dwellers, both of which I really liked). The story concept was interesting as well, and I liked the novel enough to want to read the next volume. I recommend you check this series out, you'll really enjoy it.

If you are looking for a fantasy book or series to read for free then this is the best one I've come across so far. Though I've only read a few books (less than 10) on the old nook that was just given to me (by someone in my family that bought a newer one), I have to say that this series was written quite well. There were a few grammatical and spelling errors but in my opinion people get a little too worked up over that. It's a free book and if a misspelled word or two takes away from your reading experience then you're reading just to be critical, not to enjoy a story. While the series has your dwarves and elves they aren't quite as stereotypical as usual... well maybe the dwarves are, but can you think of dwarves as anything other than stone-smiths? Plus the addition of a new race of humanoids of which the protagonist belongs, is not at all derivative of other works (at least not that I have read). I read all of the free books in the series as well as the one you need to pay for (only one dollar) and there is no reason for a fantasy lover not to read these books. Hope you enjoy.

If you are interested in another fantasy/magical/monster series, this one is actually pretty good. The author managed to come up with some fresh ideas and a fresh story line, and these books will definitely keep you reading (there are 4 in the series). There are a few missteps which annoyed me, and will probably also bother any other grammarians. I would strongly suggest that this writer get an editor - not just a bunch of friends, but a REAL editor, who can explain the difference in the words "past" and "passed", for instance. There were many instances of these words used interchangeably, and the lack of understanding of the difference became very irritating. Homonyms are words that sound alike, but are spelled differently, and they have different meanings. The meanings MATTER, and that makes all the difference when trying to enjoy a book.

Not your typical fantasy book that is out now..now werewolves..only one cameo by a vampire. I was engrossed in the descriptions of new creatures and the storyline was very engaging. Was a nice break from the vampires, werewolves, and sex packed books of late (not to say I don't like those because I do, this was just fresh for me). Can't say how much I truly liked this book. I became involved in my head with the story and the characters, and I liked how it switched points of view so you knew what was in all the characters heads. Great read at over 1,000pages was definitely worth getting!

I didn't know what to expect when I started this book. I had a friend recommend it to me but I wasn't really in the mood for fantasy adventure but within 50 pages I couldn't put it down. I stayed up last night later than I should have, thanks pneumonia, but I finished it and it was well worth it. I can't wait to start the next one!

I loved all 3 of the Delver Magic Books! Jeff Inlo realy knows how to capture detail. If you have understanding and patience this book will definetly take you to a place full of magic or in this case, returning magic, and suspense. Plus, HELLO... 3 free full books! Cant really pass that up, can ya?

While there are a few issues with it, I found it exciting and one of those books I preferred to not set down. Lots of excitiment and some novel thoughts and character types. A couple of the minor issues - In one chapter, what felt at the moment like a major plot point was clearly written as though the author was avoiding sorting out what to do with it. Later in the story though, that was forgotten and really turned out to be minor in the scheme of things. The other, and even smaller issue was the signature of an electronic spell checker. Not a large problem ... simply a bit startling now and again. Overall, I thourougly enjoyed the book, and am off to read book II.

I accidently stumbled upon this book and decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised by the style and the plot. The author does a wonderful job of putting you in the scene of the book. He takes the time to completely describe the senses, emotions and logic behind the characters. The description is well worth it! Best free trilogy available.

Like the author, I really tried and we both failed. I did read a little over 200 pages and then gave up. The characters are two dimensional, the story has no atmosphere, the narration runs between first and third person and there was, apparently, no editor. The characters have only two emotions: I'll get along with everyone or I'm angry at who ever is in power. This leads me to believe that the author is an adolescent that is just beginning to deal with authority and doesn't know how to express himself. The races are well thought out, but that's about where it ends. Ancient Elves are easily angered when questioned by fledgling races and the Delver is angry at everyone (as are the dwarves). Blah! This book just made me angry; although, that might be the goal of the author. Even free, the price was too high. Don't bother.

This book starts off promising but as you read more you end up getting bored quickly. The character's thoughts and actions make little sense and don't always seem to fit the situation. Makes them feel unreal and makes me uninterested in what they feel. I ended up skimming alot and only reading when there is action out of curiousity.

I loved the book from beginning to end. A little bit of lord of the rings but less complicated. Easy to follow the plot and remember the caracters.

This was a good epic fantasy novel. It was along the lines of the lord of the rings and Terry Brooks Shannara series. I would say that Sanctums Breech was as good as the sword of Shannara. Of course, there is the elves and dwarves like rings and shannara but the plot was original and defintely worth reading. My only thing was that there were no humorous charicters in the story. I do reccomend this book. I'm going to read the next one soon, myself.

The book had potential but quickly fell apart. Characters are quick to get angry with others. They all complain about not knowing what is going on. The action is fine, but interactions between characters is extremely boring and repetitive.

A light read 4 me, but very entertaining. Can't wait to read book 2 :)

Bleh. Don't bother. A quarter of the way through the second book, I got so sick of Inlo's leaden prose, his flat and uninspired writing style, that I gave up and erased every book in the series from my Nook, even the ones that had cost me money. I can always earn more money; I can't earn back the time I would have wasted slogging through this dreck.
