*4.5 stars* I wan't sure of this one before reading, because it is not my normal read. I am very glad I took it on now. FORTS: Fathers and Sons is about a group of kids finding themselves in the middle of a war of a different world (or worlds). This story has magical powers, prophesies, new breeds of creatures, and all the other things I expect to find in a fantasy. But there was something much more hidden between the covers of FORTS: Fathers and Sons. Mixed in with this epic fantasy we find characters with realistic problems. It was more more emotional than I expected. I wasn't expecting the story to touch on things like domestic abuse, but is does, and it does a wonderful job at it. Each character, even the non-human ones, had their own past and background story that they brought to the table. I really enjoyed getting to know each one of them. The universe that Novak has created is so large. There are so many places, and so many creatures to discover. I was reminded of Star Wars for this reason. In Star Wars, there is potential for anything to happen. There are surreal surprises around every corner, but that is just the norm for the Star Wars universe. The FORTS universe works the same way. There is no way you could cover it all in one book. There is so much room for this story to go, and that makes me excited to continue on in this series. Novak is a great writer that can keep his readers engaged. My only complaint would be the minor errors with the grammar. The story could use the keen eye of a good editor. But it wasn't enough to distract me from the story. I really enjoyed the ending. It has me eager for the sequel, Liars and Thieves. FORTS is an abnormal world with a human heart. It's the type of book you can get lost in. Novak has come in and proved that sometimes, nothing beats a good old fashioned epic fantasy.

Steven Novak creates a dizzying swirl of the best and worst of every childhood. With a blend of features from beloved movies only distantly remembered as favorites over the years, he merges it all into a palatable whole all his own. One might assume a grim reality being born within the pages of Forts, but the reader is rewarded with insights into changing destiny and overcoming any situation no matter how horrible.

I found "Forts: Fathers and Sons" to be a delightful story. The reader becomes immediately involved in the lives of the main characters before they are thrust upon a journey which forever changes their lives. Like Alice and her adventures through the looking glass, the children are caught up in the machinations of war and conquest as they try to find their way home. Alien creatures, prophesies, strange powers and magic promises a thrilling ride. A must read!
