Exiled by J.R. Wagner Advanced Review

Exiled

By J.R. Wagner

James has been falsely accused of a murder he did not commit and exiled to The Never. Though James is the Anointed One, a powerful sorcerer who will bring about the end of the Epoch Terminus a war between the Faithful, those who believe in magic, and the Unfaithful, those who do not, in The Never James does not have any powers in this strange land where even the plants are dangerous. Along the way he meets a woman who shows him how to find water that makes him feel stronger and introduces him to her village where they have been awaiting him to save them all.

The main story line of this book is very interesting but it’s the secondary story line that became quite irritating. The Secondary story line is a mass of events that took place after James was discovered to be the Anointed One and mainly involves James’ mother the irritating part is that they have no flow to them for instance in one chapter his mother is visiting the seer and roughly a hundred pages later it is his mother and father on their way to the seer.  This notwithstanding it could definitely use a bit more editing there are several places where the he is confused with she and vice versa, this would not be so bad but when there are both male and female in the scene it makes it confusing. I would like to see what happens next, this book just ended abruptly I think to get the reader to check out the next book, all in all it’s not a terrible book the main story line is actually quite enthralling just be sure to pay attention to the dates on the secondary one!

Permanence by Tom Underhill Review

Permanence

By Tom Underhill

A small group of people are stranded on a deserted island with plenty of available resources leaving too much free time on their hands. As their captain seems to go crazy the crew begins to find conflicts amongst their selves.

Another short story masterfully brought to life by Tom Underhill. Instead of this one having a supernatural or sinister angle it is simply the human mind and what we are capable of which is sometimes more intriguing. I wish the author would take this story and expound on it into a full novel I would love to be able to have more details for this one.
