The story was a little dark and somewhat complicated but definitely worth the time.

A Unique and Fascinating Sci-Fi Fantasy Tale... Author Derek Corsaro weaves a unique and fascinating sci-fi fantasy tale, with intriguing twists and turns that will easily captivate the reader’s attention from the beginning. The author paints an adventurous and action packed supernatural story in a very vivid and convincing way. In addition, the characters are drawn with great credibility and conviction. It’s a fast-paced novel that will keep you engaged from the first page to the last. The book description gives a sneak preview; ‘Meen was adopted and put to work for the Gelden Construction Company. When demons and dragons from the abyss begin a game that uses Meen's world as a playing field, he joins with two spellcasters who question their role as advisors to the king. Despite being an outcast, Meen uses his considerable skill as a construction worker to participate in the contest for the benefit of his people and drags his two companions along with him. One of which hallucinates her way through a chain of abuse, while the other just wants to walk into the black fire that burns and surrounds their world.…’ The story had every element a good story should have. An exciting plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There's an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that really make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that's something I really look for in a good book. Captivating and commendable, this work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of attention-grabbing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a truly spellbinding journey! It’s one of those books that come along occasionally that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader. Now, if what I’ve said above isn’t enough to whet your appetite, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens, you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself! However, I will say it was well worth the read. It’s my first time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed. If this book is anything to go by, I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Derek Corsaro in the future. I would definitely recommend this book and would love to see it adapted for the Silver Screen. I honestly think this would make a great movie. It goes without saying, that this story bares all the hallmarks of making a great series. I’m looking forward to the next installment. Five stars from me.
