Excited By This New Series

I have been a fan of the fantasy literature genre ever since I was a child. I have eagerly read and enjoyed many books such as the the Harry Potter series, the Lord of the Rings, the Inheritance Trilogy, the Dragonriders of Pern, and the Chronicles of Narnia. I was therefore excited by the idea of this book.

However, Book One of the Chronicles of Susah is different from all of these other series I mentioned – this particular book is set in historical places, coincides with ancient events, and is peopled with some familiar (and some not-so-familiar) characters. The idea of a time-forgotten, strong feminine-character from thousands of years ago is enchanting! I found myself saying, “Aha!” as the story unfolded and I saw this spitfire of a character filling in the spaces between the concise Biblical accounts of these events.

I also very much enjoyed the mental picture developed by the story of what the world might have looked like before the catastrophic flood as told in Genesis. The speculation of an ice shield is something I’ve never encountered in my readings before. The way that this younger, less-tainted Earth was described is fascinating to me.

The idea of people from early Biblical times having advanced technology is also something I’ve not read before. Alternative power sources, advanced weaponry, and the ability to see and hear things that are invisible to most other people make the story of a catastrophic, world-wide flood even more devastating! To think if technology like that had existed before the flood, it has taken civilization over 4000 years to even come close to “reinventing the wheel”, so to speak.

I have very much enjoyed this book. It has a quick pace, and excellent descriptive imagery. I found the violence and demonic activity to be intense but believable. The description of society fouled by a tangible demonic presence was disturbing, but it also makes you pull for the heroine and the humans all the more.

I am looking forward to getting to read subsequent books in this series. I hope you will read and enjoy this work of fiction as much as I did.
