When I started this book I was a bit leery given the framework and the obvious references to religion. Nevertheless, I sat down to read it and despite my initial misgivings it really was a fun read so I'm giving it a 4 for the entertainment I derived from it. I really enjoyed some of the characters and appreciated the spice thrown in by some of the more obscure ones in this merry band of mortals off to save the universe. In addition, I'm always up for some good action and a rollicking space batt ...more

This novel was an interesting experiment for me to read, because I really had no idea ahead of time whether or not I would like it. Usually when I pick up a book and start reading I have some idea of whether or not I'm going to find it enjoyable, but that wasn't the case here at all. I was excited to read it, and excited by the basic premise of the story, but having never read the author I knew nothing about his style of writing or pacing or if the story itself would actually be any good.

Let me preface my review by letting you know that the author, LaMonte M. Fowler, graciously provided me with a kindle copy of this book in return for a review. Thank you so much Mr. Fowler!

With “Watchers of the UR: Cradle”, Mr. Fowler has taken the much written about clashes of good vs. evil and angels and demons and opened our eyes to the reality of those fights from a new perspective. It boldly addresses the age-old questions of where we as humans/mankind fit into our universe and how we can

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was an enjoyable read. Fowler does a good job making you think how religion would progress along with the advancements in science and technology. Why wouldn't angles and demons follow us off the planet? That was a good question running through my mind the whole time I read the book. If angels are there to protect us from the demons then logically demons would follow us to tempt us and then the angle to protect us. I'm excited for the sequel to come out ...more

heavy on religion which isn't really my thing but a decent read. I would say it's more like a 3.5 out of 5. if like me you are not religious and read this book my advise is keep reading. it's a nice little story

This is a Christian SF story with an interesting look at our future prospects as a people. LaMonte M. Fowler was a first time author with this book, so there are some rough patches, but it's well worth the read!

THE WATCHERS OF UR: CRADLE, LaMonte M. Fowler, 2014
When I heard about this book, I thought it was science-fiction about pre-history. I mean, Ur? That’s where Abraham began.
This book is sci-fi, fantasy, good-vs-evil. The action takes place in space in the 26th Century. As I was reading, I remembered some of Frank Herbert’s early stories (before Dune); and some stories of which I no longer remember the title or author. Mr. Fowler writes in a similar vein.
Where will humanity be in the 26th Century?

I was intrigued by the synopsis but the story never took hold of me. It is well written, with only a few editing miscues, and I felt that I would eventually get into the flow of the narrative but that wasn't the case. It may well be that I've read too many sci-fi offerings in my time.

I was paid in association with this book so I decline reviewing it.
