I have a fair share in reading books, articles and blogs by various authors. One distinct name or rather distinct author is Kimbro west. The thing that separates Kimbro from other emerging authors is his down to earth and true description about himself as well as his work. I recently had a chance to indulge myself into the world of Ethan Wright and his friends. Now, I know that one should not judge a book by its cover but, one of the first thing that you will agree with me is Cover of "Ethan Wri ...more

Ethan has dreams that are a bit disturbing. His twin brother, Isaac, has been missing for years and he misses him. His father had left him a strange map with places that do not exist.

As a punishment, Ethan is sent to spend time with Wegnel, an alchemist. While at Wegnel’s, Ethan travels to a different world, the world with the names on the map. Searching for his brother seems closer than ever. With the help of his best friend, Auren, and 2 other friends, Ethan and gang travel into the strange ne

The first part of the story was interesting.But as the story goes on,the intensity dies.The characters way of thinking is actually,sorry to say this,a kind of stupid.Wegnel is eccentric but I didn't feel it.It might be because the author is trying real hard to make this character eccentric but it proves to be unsuccessful.The story might be interesting if the author improves her writing skill,in a way in which the reader will be kept entertained until the end.

Great story

This is a good book and a great story I gave it 4 stars only because it was a little slow at times and other times it was fast-paced the characters were very likable and they made you want to read more to find out what was going to happen next the only other thing that I didn't like was the way the final battle ended it was too quick I left a lot of questions unanswered so I guess I'ma have to read the second book to find out more

Fun filled action packed!

I picked this book on a whim, and started to get a little bored, because, it appeared to be another underdog getting picked on by a bully. Little did I expect the enjoyment that I got in reading the rest of the book; can't wait till I get the next one in the series.

Along the lines of Percy Jackson

The storyline was inventive and the characters have definite personalities. The back story is lacking, but may fill out in the next books. Lots of questions to be answered.

Cool story!

This was a great read when it finally reached the top of my to be read list. I loved Ethan and his bravery and I'm looking forward to reading book two.

Alchemists, Swordsmen (and women), stone wolves

Oh. My. It's a cracking good read. Has the odd Harry Potter moment, but what doesn't these days. It is highly innovative, and my few grumps are massively out numbered by my grins. Enjoy.

Recommends it for: Middle school and up, or possibly well-read 4-5th graders
The cover of this book caught my eye instantly! My aunt and I have been looking for books that might interest her oldest son who is having difficulty reading, so I bought this one and planned to skim it to see if it might work.

I openly admit that when I started reading I was thrown by the words "tail-devourer" and "Oroborus" in the Prelude. I had no clue what those words meant, and I was a little scared it might turn my nephew off to the book since these words were right there as you start readi

Though not the most "evolved" work I've read lately, the story was enjoyable. There were a few editing mistakes but nothing so extreme as to distract me from the story itself. I'm still not certain what the significance of Availia and Stanley are to the story...I can only assume that their importance will come in through another story. Great for younger readers or adults looking for an easy read. I really appreciated that the dialog was not weighed down with inappropriate language and that the s ...more

Shelves: gave-up
I was looking forward to this book but it just did not grip me, I had to force myself to read more. I got to 30% before I gave up. Ethan is supposed to be the main character but he was just kind of bland, when he thinks about his parents' deaths I did not even feel sad for him because he just made it seem like he was not bothered, he is 13 yrs old he has to miss his parents all the time and yet I just felt like his emotions were all muted really. I could not get connected to the characters or ev ...more

This is an interesting story with believable characters and fun ideas.
I was rooting for Ethan from the beginning, I guess we women feel a little protective of these poor characters who have no immediate family.
Very good one for reluctant readers of 8+
Easy to read with some interesting words and great descriptions.

Recommend to young readers, young teens and young at heart adults!

Ethan and his friends,Auren and Availia, go on an adventure to find his brother Isaac. They get involved in sword fights, fight a stone werewolf and a mighty alchemist. This book is a great read for young and old. I can't wait to see what new adventure awaits Ethan and his friends as he continues his search for his brother.

I've only read 25% of this book, but I'm done. The tone of the book is off. all the sentences sound like statements of fact from a text book, not like someone telling an exciting adventure story. I'm just not intrigued by the story.
Bill Tillman
Interesting plot, and fun read. Holds interest from the beginning to the end. The snake that eats its tale has been around for thousands of years yet this is the first real departure from the original tale. Five Thumbs way up.

It was okay. I probably wouldn't read the others in the series unless I had nothing else. It was a sort of Harry Potter type setup and you couldn't help making comparisons. Things got a little complicated but it was still a good read.

This is the adventure of a 12 year old boy and his 3 friends. It's good vs evil spanning 7 worlds and 7 peoples. As he continues his quest to find his twin brother, father and all the perils along the way, he also begins to discover himself and his destiny.

Ok, but not fantastic. The dialogue was a bit weak (basically all the characters sounded the same), though the world concept was intriguing.

Not a bad story. It did feel like a first work and took about a third of the book to smooth out and catch it's stride. Overall still well done.

It is somewhat hard to follow everyone and to get into it, but I love its creativity and is good enough that I wish to read the next one.

Fairly well written

Hard to track the story line at times due to the jumping around, but not a bad red overall. Hopefully the sequel will track well.

“That’s enough for today. You have forty-five minutes to get to sword basics. It’s held in the yard behind the orientation building. After that, another mandatory class taught by me. Stop and get some food beforehand if you wish.” He handed the students some coins. “I expect Heinrich will try to wear you out, but save some energy for my class if you can.” “Heinrich?” complained Auren. “Contrary to what you may think, he is a very good teacher — do pay attention.” “Professor … I thought you didn’t like Heinrich,” challenged Ethan. “Of course I do,” corrected Edison. “But I also despise him — he is my nemesis. I would be lying if I said it didn’t please me to infuriate him on occasion. But without him, there would be no challenge to overcome, no adversary to confront — when it comes down to it, what fun would it be without the Heinrichs of the world?” 2 likes
