Though I enjoy fantasy it is not a genre I usually default to. Genesis
was recommended to me by a friend because of our mutual like of Dune. I
was very impressed with this debut work! The worlds and characters are
richly developed and Garret does a great job of drawing the reader in. I
am excited to read the next installment!
I gave this 4 instead
of 5 because the complexity of the universe Garret created can be a bit
confusing at times and the length can be a bit overwhelming to some.
Wonderful world you can sink your teeth into. Story telling executed in a
fantastic style that makes you want to keep reading. The characters
jump off the page and make you believe in their journey. Good till then
end. When is the next one?
This book was phenomenal! I am eagerly anticipating the next volume of this series! Wade, hurry it up!!! The
characters are so full of depth, deep dialog, and detail that in
reading, I felt I could hear them next to me if I had closed my eyes
with their gruff voices. Smell their skin, feel the worn edges of their
clothing even. Garret has such a powerful way with description. It
really pulls you in, making you ready to turn the pages as fast as you
can to get to the next part of the adventure. The prologue almost
lost my attention, but I'm so thankful that I continued to read. It
wasn't that the prologue wasn't good, it's that it contained so many
facts that my brain was swirling. Almost as if I needed to make a flow
chart to keep up. Once I began reading the meat of the book, it all made
sense. Be prepared to be engulfed in this book. Once you start
reading, you won’t want to put it book down. You too will crave to know
more! My poor Kindle Fire almost couldn’t keep up with me turning pages
Wow! Didn't expect this. Not normally one for fantasy stuff but REALLY
enjoyed this. This is a first time author? I was hooked from the
opening pages. Eagerly anticipating Book Two!
Michael R. Collins-
Complex and compelling. Diving into this book is diving into a complete
world already served and delivered. The world in which Wade Garret has
built is not one that is constructed as you go. It’s hard not to get
sucked into the rich and developed story as well as the elaborate and
well fleshed out characters. As we follow the main character Jak, the
story chugs along, building up momentum and makes it hard to put down
the beginning you feel a little bombarded with all the little details,
but the farther you get those details help guide you through and make it
all the more real.
This isn’t a book to expect to read quickly and move on. It’s a fantastic tome of sci-fi/fantasy immersion.
