My Review of: The Guardians of Akasha
I received the Guardians of the Akasha for free in exchange for an honest and fair review. Overall, I thought the presentation of the cover and the blurb were excellent. Both really drew me to this book and made me want to read it. I thought the imagery of the cover was very professional. Here's my thoughts on the rest of the book.
Things that I liked:
Overall, the biggest thing that I liked about this book was the writing itself. It thought it was very good. It didn't confuse me and had a very good flow. The characters felt genuine and real. The dialogue, as well, felt genuine and real.
Things that I didn't like:
The story itself didn't overly impress me. I found I had a hard time swallowing the name Akasha used in place of magic. I might not have got what the author was trying to do with that, but I wasn't on board with it through the story. I wasn't a fan of the villain either. He didn't really come off as a evil and hard to defeat as I would've liked. I thought he was pretty one dimensional as well. I found myself not really wanting to keep reading at times. There wasn't a whole lot of suspense. That's more of a personal opinion, however. I am sure there are tons of people out there that would feel differently.
Stars: Four out of Five
Overall, the four star rating comes from the author's writing as opposed to the actual story. I felt it was really good and deserved to be recognized. However, I wasn't drawn into the story. It didn't really compel me to keep reading. The ending was very anti-climatic and because of that, it took me longer to read than I my normal pace.
