    Writing 15Story 35Characters 15Style 25Cover 35Overall Score 15Disclaimer These are just my thoughts and opinions on this product and I urge you as a potential customer to forge your own through whatever methods you preferStatus Refund pending – awaiting revisionWritingOne out of five for writing seems a bit harsh but in this case I couldn't honestly award any points The errors within the text range from minor typos and formatting errors all of the way up to broken sentences Seriously at some points either the subject object or verb were dropped forcing me to play some sort of “guess the word” game Obviously this is not what I intend to do when I sit down to read Given this I often found myself re reading several passages which ultimately made the read much longer than what it should have been To add to this slowing effect I felt that the pacing lagged every so often which is weird because the transition jumps at times They say conflict is important in crafting a story but in this case we have the choppy somewhat fast transition contrasting with slow pacing and blatant structural issues Realistically if the typos dropped words formatting double words repeated phrases and punctuation were polished then I could pump this up to a three The pacing and transition? Those two will iron themselves out as the author gains experience in writingStoryThe Eye of God's story it's core isn't good or bad It's average At first glance I thought that this was another MacGuffin uest but thankfully no the plot device in uestion does have narrative explanation as to why it's important I gave it a three because I've seen this story done before—in some cases better and in some cases worse Church conspiracies are always fun too and this story is packing one but once again seen it done betterworse CharactersStrawmen and redshirts withstanding I'll just focus on Blaise and Terin here The reason I put Blaise's name first and gave this section a one are related Terin is the protagonist but is infinitely less appealing than Blaise I don't like this in anything I am viewing for entertainment be it anime videogames movies tv shows books etc I'm all for forging unsung heroes out of people with potential but Terin isn't for this From the moment I met him I was struck with the kind of melodramatic and general malaise that just feels like self pity It made me see him as a uitter who uit before the book even began and that just isn't cool I want to root for the underdog but Terin doesn't even want to be the underdog it seems which would be okay but it's drawn out to the point where I uestion if Terin even wants to be in the book So what of Blaise? He's the bad boy He comes out guns blazing and outshines Terin which can be made to work but once again Terin appears to have no intent motivation or desire to even be a person The idea is that by the end of the book Terin eventually comes into his own and surpasses Blaise but due to such a poor first impression I felt anything Terin achieved just wouldn't be enough These kind of things only truly work for me if there are subtle hints at the protagonist's transformation from the start Think of Terin's personal growth as a tree where there has to be a seed and over the course of the story we water it through character development and then bam—syca Sadly in Terin's case there was no seed—just barren earth A tree was later transplanted much like the kind lining the streets of New York City but it just doesn't feel rightI digress back to Blaise I like Dante from Devil May Cry too so Blaise worked If he was one dimensional at times then that's fine because he's a supporting character Also as I've mentioned he largely serves as a comparison for the endgame version of Terin so I didn't really place that much of a burden on his development So why the 1 for this section? All of the badassery of Blaise simply cannot make up for the wet blanket downer that is Terin and for that matter I really don't care for the backseat protagonist role of Blaise What do I mean? When reading this I felt like I'd much rather view the entirety of the story either through Blaise's eyes or over his shoulder and not Terin's This isn't good in my opinionStyleThis section came in so low due to purple prose There are just too many sections where I felt the author was trying to dazzle me with hisher writing mastery than to actually tell me a story Couple this in with the sheer amount of errors and I am doubly turned off It also lends to the pacing problems that I've mentioned previously and I'll explainFor the sake of preventing as many spoilers as possible I've decided to restrict a majority of this review to the preview that can be found on the author's product page Purple prose in the sense that I've explained it becomes a problem when certain sections are overly wordy due to the above mentioned reasons I noticed early in the text that the author took an unreasonable amount of words and my time to describe a rock wall that the protagonist was clinging to down to the most minute detail “While most of the cliff was bare stone the presence of a spring encouraged things to grow” Heshe could have stopped here but then“Scrubsic clung to the rocks cracking them and making the cliff unstable”Okay I've got it There is plant life on the cliff“Near the estate gnarled roots protruded from crumbling stone tearing at him as he sought to grip something that wouldn't break under his weight”Plants On the cliff I understand can we go now?“Too many of the mossy stones shifted and creaked when he brushed against them”Creaked—then oil them and let's be done with thisNow I understand the need for world building especially in works where the location plays a vital role in the overall story itself but this feels excessive to me When reading passages like this I ask myself “The plant life on this cliff; is it related to Terin The Eye of God and Erelith?” and I come to this conclusion not so much So then I ask “Why so much coverage on thisscrub?” and the answer is purple prose If we were on a walking tour of The Eye of God think of how smooth and fluid our journey would be if we constantly made stops so that the tour guide could comment on the floor tiles benches fluorescent lights etc It'd be an incredibly slow trip and really—I just came for the art I gave this section a two because this just runs rampant throughout the entire book I think the author has a decent story to tell here but in order to pump this up to a three or four RJ Blain I'm really gonna need you to focus upCoverI usually have a hard time deciding how to start this section so I'll just go with a wide view of it We have greek architecture in the background and some kid sporting a 90's haircut in the foreground In his hands is what appears to be a hamidashi and he is wearing a polo style t shirt with far too many brass buttons To be honest I'm not sure what era or location this takes place in Is this a serious bookcover? What kind of serious—like Civilization V serious or Rifts World Book serious because if this the case then it's actually kind of silly Then again I like both Civilization V and Rifts so there you go The coloring used on this cover has a bland and muted feeling to it I'm assuming that this was hand painted and then scanned and the traditional aspect of this earns points I'm big on craftsmanship The thing is that it feels a bit blurry overall and actually makes the cover seem low res—which is a turn off for me personally I've seen drafts of this cover with an alternate typeface that pops it seems to jump off of the cover and then I find myself wondering why the final has such flat text It melts into the cover and has a wallflower type effect on my eyes If you view a bigger version and look too long the text has the same smeary looking problem that the character and background share To be honest this wouldn't offend me per say but it surely wouldn't catch my eye Once the book is in my hands? I'd hesitate to read it Too safe too neutral tooblandOverallI wouldn't recommend this book in it's current state but that's largely due to the sheer amount of editing errors going on underneath the cover I'd feel embarrassed endorsing it Conclusion Anyone who knows me knows that I don't usually do reviews but while I have not met this author I felt compelled to return the favor A while back the author featured my book on their blog and was actually one of the first people to have done so The reason why the status for this book is “Refund pending – awaiting revision” is because I have seen the author mention a revised edition being released sometime this fall That being said I am absolutely certain that this review's score will not stay locked at a two and I look forward to re reviewing it when the time comes

    Notes of InterestI got this book several years ago I honestly don’t remember the details of how or why It has been in my “To Be Read” list far too long I’m ashamed to say so I recently decided it was time to dust it off However when I started reading I soon had to put it down to finish some other books on loan by deadline When I picked it up again I was lost Normally I can remember the major details with the plot and characters by simply continuing where I left off as long as the break isn’t than a couple of monthsAs I drafted this review I looked up a few other reviews in hopes of clarifying a few uestions Like what exactly is Blaise supposed to be? Other reviewers apparently had trouble with this uestion too because while some referred to him as an angel his true form is red and he used to have a tail not your usual angelic description I thought he was a demon or fallen angel until I was confronted with a reference to his beak Did that mean he was a dragon? A griffin? Some beast uniue to this fictional world? Other reviewers resorted to calling him an “otherworldly creature” so perhaps that is the best label but it frustrated me that I couldn’t get a grip on his species by nameSo I have come to the conclusion that my break from reading is not what made this story hard to follow at some points But I am noting the break in case I did miss something obvious as a result of my own inconsistencyWhat could have made it better for meI’ve already mentioned the main thing that frustrated me lack of clarity It’s not just with Blaise’s true form It’s in the world building of the religion and empire as well as with the artifacts being sought It’s not bad I just felt it could have been better because the story left me with uestions than answers — uestions about foundation elements than what happens nextWho is God? Is this the Judeo Christian God but in an alternate reality? Or are we talking about a different divine immortal? We are told what the artifacts are and a story about the spirits possessing them but I’m still left wondering how they came to be what they are They’re important obviously so I felt a little precision on describing them and where they came from and what they can do was in order Who is Blaise’s woman friend in the shop? She and her old language are notably different from everyone else but with no solid explanation why Is God’s garden a literal garden in this world like how ancient Greek’s imagined Mount Olympus? Or is it a metaphysical place were roses are souls unlike the roses of this world? Tarin was able to enter and steal an artifact but he’s mortal and alive The world’s physics feel undefined uestions like this made me wish the author had spent a little time on world building and descriptionsAside from clarity issues there were a number of technical errors that pulled me out of the story And with the exception of Blaise the characters felt flat Tarin is supposed to be the “chosen one” of the series but Blaise’s complexity as a reluctant immortal pretending to be mortal is interesting We follow Tarin’s escape and mistreatment among his captors until he escapes again; but he is suicidal and his agency is diminished by the dominant characters around himWhat I liked about itIn spite of the lack of clarity the ideas in this story have potential I like stories that involve conspiracies against religions and governments and that is the core of what’s brewing here If the conspiracy becomes the center focus there is potential for intrigue and some good plot twists because that is the nature of conspiraciesuest stories are usually adventurous so the search for the artifact thief makes up the bulk of the action in this book and there is potential for the protagonist to have agency in the follow up books as the artifacts become important to solving the problem of the conspiracyBut perhaps my favourite device in this story is the use of the Scripture as a tool for magic Because the plot encompasses an organized religion adherents of the faith can literally recite a passage of Scripture to produce magic in the same manner one would vocalize casting a spell The power that a mortal has to Speak the Word of God would obviously depend on how well they know the Scriptures by heart and perhaps the strength of their faith Immortals like Blaise have power This may seem like nothing new if you’re familiar with any of the literal based branches of Judeo Christian faiths but on a fictional level this is uniue because of how these sacred scriptures are literally grimoires full of very powerful tangible magic I love how this concept seems so obvious in the real world and yet we hardly ever see it handled uite like this in secular fiction I thought it was well done throughoutRecommendationThis is a tough book for me to reach a conclusion about I view it the same way I view abstract art I can appreciate it as something uniue based on colors and mood alone But if I stare at it long enough I see things that may or may not exist because my brain defaults to needing a solid picture in order to make sense of it I see the potential in the world the characters and what’s going on with the artifacts but I don’t enjoy rereading passages when I feel like I missed something important The reader who prefers to know exactly what the author envisioned might have a difficult time following this book than the reader who prefers to fill in some of the details himself

    I struggled a bit at the start with the style of the writing I had to back track a couple of times and re read some bits I found a bit heavy on descriptions By the time I reached the half way mark I was engrossed in the two main characters and eager to see what would happen to themBy the end I was ready to start the next instalment because at the end I did feel it was just a beginning not a whole story as I still had uestions and things I wanted to know about the world RJ Blain had createdI did find a few typos and some bits which read a bit clunky but it only slowed me down a touch when I had to re read those passages But I still enjoyed the story and wanted to know about the characters and hopefully in the next instalment we will meet some of the others which were only hinted at


  7. says:

    I enjoyed this book The world RJ Blain creates is so unusual It was a little hard to follow at first for me but I think that was because the characters and the world was so very different As I read on it all became clearer to me and I really began wondering which direction it would go next Disclaimer I received this as an ARC and read it as such I am looking forward to reading the final published book

    I wanted to like the book but I just could not get interested enough about the characters I managed to read to the end but still neither really spoke to me Blaise was interesting but Terin I did not care at all about I found it very hard to keep interested in the story either Too much religion and gods in my opinion I like RJ Blain as an author but this particular series is not for me
