Read full description of the books The Galian Spear:This is quite an enjoyable book. And I'll tell you honestly: it came to my attention only because it was featured on the blog of Lousy Book Covers. (This is the second such book that is much much better than its cover art might lead you to believe.) After reading straight through the preview on Amazon, I plunked down full price for this (e-book), and am happy with that decision. I immediately loaded it to my device and plowed through to chapter 6 before setting it aside temporarily so I could eat dinner.
It's billed as a children's book, suitable for age 8 or up. And it's apparently a product of that venerable tradition in which literary parents write books for their own children. But it has a good deal to offer an adult reader as well. I like the way it "explains" a number of historical artifacts, legends, and so forth; and how it ties together bits of history, aliens, and kind of magical technology. (There was one precise point where the little hairs on my neck stood up, which is a good sign.)
The only criticism I would mention is that for the first few chapters it didn't really sink in that the story takes place in Dublin, Ireland. If you're going to read it, just keep that tidbit in mind from the get-go and you're set.
One more caveat: it's something of a cliff-hanger. I'm gonna get on the list for the next volume.
Also: This is a self-published book, and I do want to especially note the general excellence of the copy-editing. Whether that's due to the author or a hired editor, it's pretty darn good. Only a few typos, mostly involving punctuation, and nothing that made me stop long enough to decide I needed to take notes. S-R-o-P says this author's OK; she gets the silver rodent award.
