This is the sequel to the book "Xenolith" and continues the story of Dr. Frank and his search for Elizabeth, his believed to be dead wife who has actually crossed a trans-dimensional portal to another world. I enjoyed "Xenolith" tremendously, but confess to being disappointed with "Peregrin." In this volume the story gets too diluted, I believe, and that leaves the reader struggling to follow. Like a nylon rope beginning to unravel, the multitude of characters separates and so Sparrow tries to k ...more

Peregrin is the sequel to Xenolith. I haven’t read Xenolith so I went into this one not knowing what to expect. There were things I liked about the book that would lead me to believe I would like the first book, however there were things about it that I didn’t like as well. There are parts of the book that I think I would have enjoyed more if I had read the first one.

To begin with I liked the characters. There didn’t seem to be any one main character as the story itself was told from multiple pe

After the abrupt cliffhanger of Xenolith, I had high hopes for this book. It didn't meet them. Too many different plotlines which, while they did eventually converge into one, just seemed too haphazard and oddly strung together. You'd stay with one plotline for four chapters in a row, then zip back to a different one for one chapter, then off to a third for two, and then nothing on that one for another five. Add to that the vast assortment of increasingly simple editorial errors (such as saying ...more

Peregrin by A.Sparrow.

In this book Peregrin is a foreigner- stranger -traveler which in my dictionary is Peregrine. On the other hand Peregrin is Pippin from the LOTR. Since this is the second half of an epic adventure it all balances out.

I love everything about the two books Xenolith and Peregrin. I believe that most everywhere the first book is free though in some places you have to purchase the second for about a dollar. That's the e-books. They are well worth the price. If you like the fanta

I read lots and lots of free books. Mostly because I'm a cheapskate, but also because I am curious about books that writers give away. It's not surprising that free books are full of typos and many would benefit from some attention from a professional editor - the writer has invested time but probably nor money into stories they are willing to give away.

A. Sparrow is imaginative and created a captivating world and concept with Xenolith. I cared about the characters and couldn't wait for Peregrin

I didn't like the sequel as much as I liked Xenolith. I was interested in the dynamic between Frank and Liz, and the book didn't even talk about that part of the story until about 15 percent in. I also felt like it wasn't really resolved at the end. There were also a lot more battle scenes in this one, which I didn't love. The book just kinda ended with nothing being solved.

Peregrin is a battle-laced sequel to the first book, Xenolith, by A. Sparrow. I thought Xenolith was the better of the two. The author needs to hire a proof-reader, and although some of the descriptive narrative was innovative, I also found strange word usage. All in all, a quick read and worthwhile addition to the Xenolith eBook.

It turned out not to be another episode of Lost.. At around 30% the story picked up pace and continued well to the end. All the threads are nicely finished and the read was ok.
For some reason though, i did not enjoy this book. It failed to drag me in, maybe because it didn't propose anything new and was quite predictable.

A continuation of the story begun in Xenolith; a nicely detailed fantasy.
