Nophek Gloss (The Graven Book 1)

We rated this book:


Sometimes a debut author’s work is a shining beacon of a new literary voice, other times it is a work that is overly ambitious and lacking focus, though there can be seen a gloss of ability. This work falls more into the second category, as the story structure needed more work, along with plotting and other things to make it not only clearer but also for the reader to care about the hero. At some point in the future young Caiden, who questions everything like every teenager ever, is questioning his father about when the cattle the planet he lives on raises will return and what life is like away from home when it is violently attacked and only Caiden is left standing after beings from another world destroy it. Caiden joins a misfit crew to survive, roam the galaxy and get revenge on the people that not only enslaved him but also killed them all as well. This book needed probably another review, it is hard to follow at times, and hard to really get into as it moves a bit slowly. The quick chapters try to give it that extra movement, but the constant change of scenery makes it hard to follow at times.
