I was pleasantly surprised when reading “The Eighth Power: Book I” by Paul Lytle. I am a very picky reader but was able to enjoy both the writing style as well as the story presented. Not only was the story original, but I also enjoyed that the plot was not predictable, and that the characters weren’t stereotypical. Although there were a few spelling/grammar errors, which can happen in even the most renown author’s books, the writing style was intelligent, not overly descriptive or flowery, and written with just enough old English style that it was easily comprehensible and didn’t require re-reading of sentences, or pausing for coherence, but properly conveyed the time period and world that Lytle was creating. The map was helpful in the narrative, and the belief system, and gods were intriguing and intricate, yet easy to comprehend and logical. I have already procured copies of the next 4 books in the series and am eager to see where this author takes the reader.

270 nook pages. Not a bad short book. Seems there is seven gods in this world, each has its own profit/wizard. When one dies, his power immeadiately passes to a newborn male. Seems one of these profits, wants everyones powers. This books etails what the regular folk go thru, to keep their children safe from his ministrations. But it seems he will stop at nothing to find the two newborn profits.
