As appealing as the thought of being a Sorcerer-Guardian is to Ajay Samuels, the harmonious existence between all Ageronians and Earthlies leaves little reason for him to put his abilities into practice. Abilities that should set him apart from the rest of his kind due to his status as an Altor; the elite and powerful body of seven succeeding families of the original seven ...more

The novel started with a good premise. The prologue was definitely fantastically dark. I loved some parts of the book especially the training; they were a real page-turner.

I had some issues with the consistency of this book. It started great but suddenly went downhill, then became interesting again at the near end.

The characters were great. Specifically, Ajay's Consor, Zaniel. There were a lot of characteristics which he possessed, and humor is unquestionably one of them.

I definitely felt a Harr

Starts off with a prologue about a vision. The main character is Ajay Samuels and he is a guardian sorcerer. Their kind also has pale skin. (They must hate the sun, sunburn ouch!)He has three abilities, telekinesis, premonitions, and envelishment. (I wish I had one ability. Out of these three, I would want telekinesis. It would be so fun to be able to lift things without using hands!) The sorcerer can't use their powers for their personal gains.

I enjoyed the premise of this book, it has a unique story and I was delighted that I had the chance to read it.
I had a few qualms about it though, some of the describing for me was a little too in depth, much like something from Charles dickens, paid by word count. I also found it hard to believe that Ajay was as young as he was, I know it's difficult to write a character so young, when you aren't a similar age, but I definitely thought that I was reading something narrated by a 21 year old at l

Its been too long since I have stayed up at night because the book remains too good to put down. I would definitely suggest reading The Shadow Rebellion. Especially if you enjoy books like Harry Potter and even the Pendragon series. This book made for a truly enjoyable book!!!

One spoiler hidden

Altor: The Shadow Rebellion has a great premise, story and offers a great cast of characters; however, some technical issues made it difficult to read. Let me explain. Most prominent are the repetitive words and phrases that are throughout the story. In some parts, it felt similar to déjà vu, as if I went back a few pages and I am reading the same pages twice. For example, (view spoiler)

I enjoyed this book, the story was very interesting. I will definitely let my 10 year old nephew read it too.
The book picks up at around page 80 or so which was a little disappointing and hard to get into the book. There were unfortunately many sections of the book where the description was lengthy, and could have been skipped. I also found that some scenes tended to repeat themselves without bringing anything new to the story line.
For an authors first novel, I enjoyed it, and will look forward

"In the words of the immortal Farookh Bulsara (Freddie Mercury) it's magnifico-o-o-o-o-o-o". One of the top 5 books tha I've read for a year or so. The prose is magnificent, and, although the plot is complew, it's relatively easy to follow. I shall recommend this to everybody that I know. BrILLIANT. get it read,
