Take the trip

This is one of those book you can be completely absorbed in. You are within the story.The outside world is gone.You truly get to know the characters and make friends or enemies with them.You will fall into this book and breathe the same air as the characters in the book. When an author can do that,paint a story and bring you into it to live with in that world , they have given you an beautiful escape from reality.Who doesn't need that every now and then?! I truly enjoyed this book.I

I'm not generally a huge fan of fantasy novels, but this one was a treat. As soon as it starts moving forward I was invested in the characters, especially their dynamic flaws. A wonderful first novel, and I look forward to reading more by this author. Definitely recommend to others looking for a quick read with a fresh voice.

I know I've really enjoyed reading a book when I feel that pang of regret as I approach the last page - the realisation that my time with some newly found friends is about to come to an end. This is probably why I found reading the glossary, after I had finished the book, to be a lovely reminisce of the characters' long journey across this intriguing landscape. It brought back to me some of the extraordinary details earlier on in the book.

Don't let the fact that this book has a glossary deter y

Upon picking up this novel I wasn't quite certain what to expect - as much as I enjoy the genre, I tend to handle fantasy stories at a dubious arms-length. As with any story that introduces you to a brand new world of the author's creation, the beginning takes some brainpower to work through. Once you get yourself a grip on the new places, factions and people, you can effectively begin to participate in the adventure. (Here I would have included my only complaint: that the book did not include a ...more

To improve my writing and to help other authors, I am reviewing novels by independent authors in addition to novels by popular authors.

I have been reading The Last Death of Tev Chrisini by Jennifer Bresnisk, but, with reluctance, I am setting it aside. I will not rate the story, because I did not finish (DNF) the book.

The book has received good reviews on Goodreads and Amazon. If you are into fantasy I encourage you to check out a sample. See what you think.

To be fair to Jennifer Bresnick, the b

Intriguing characters, an interesting story line, and vivid locations… what else can you ask for?

If at times I felt that there was too much information coming at me too fast, it would only be because Jennifer Bresnick has created so detailed and nuanced of a world. Graciously she included a Glossary, though I failed to notice this until after I’d completed the story. Finding it sooner may have saved me some time referencing back to earlier parts in the story to be sure I had my facts straight. M

GREAT STORY! The book starts out boring, dragging. I was about ready to put the book down; I'm glad I didn't!
There are grammatical errors. Words are joined together line after line at points. These joined words frustrated
me at first then I enjoyed the challenge. I would read lines here and there telling me of various characters' past.
I walked with the characters in their present lives and found myself following them in their goals and challenges.
The descriptive scenery, the smell of the grass, b

While The Last Death of Tev Chrisini deals with war and the complicated politics between sides, and even among family members, at its heart it is very much a story about one man's journey of self-discovery. The events that were triggered before the first battle of the novel set in motion a course of events that propel Tev, and by extension us the reader, forward.

As is the case in most heroic journeys, Tev has the choice to refuse or back out. He could have chosen to deny is heritage and his dest

The Last Death of Tev Chrisini is a great fantasy novel. The world Jennifer Bresnick has created has a history and cultures just as deep as Middle Earth in Lord of the Rings. The characters are interesting and left me wanting to know more about them. This book could easily spawn all kinds of prequels and sequels, and I look forward to reading them all when they come along.
