I've watched a few other authors I respect and admire take the time to review their own works so I thought I would take a stab at it. I know this isn't the absolute best book in the world, but it was a great starting point for me to get published. I spent about 7 years writing the book and the a couple more years editing (with much help from patient friends and families) while submitting to various agents and publishers. When I started writing, this was only a small portion of what I wanted and was only going to go on for 2 (maybe 3) books. Now it is an ever growing world. The series will be 5 books along with side stories of characters as I have the time to write them. This starts a long journey of an child from Myriad who is orphaned on Earth when his mother can no longer ensure his safety. It was an emotional rollercoaster for me as I have watched the characters grow into what they are today. The journey was long and exhausting but still Jason pushed on with only one thing in mind: Save Kristine Simmons. He never intended to do more than find her and bring her back home with him but soon found himself in more than just a "Quest for the Oracle"; he was on a quest to find himself and save a world from evil. I give it 4 stars not because I don't believe it is a wonderful story or my writing isn't worth while, but because it is only my first book and the story still has a long way to go and characters still have a lot to learn and experience. Personally, I love this story and whether or not it becomes a best seller or not it is still my baby. I have (and always will) made sure this is a story that not only can older kids and teenagers fall in love with, but that it will bridge the gap for generations as the likes of Harry Potter and Fable Haven have managed to do. I wanted to write a story that is not only intriguing to a young mind, but also still appealing to my grandma's generation. I really believe this is a story that can draw you in and leaving you guessing. It will pull at your heart in even in the end you'll find yourself wanting more
