I met the author,Graham Wood, at the London Author Fair at the end of February and he very kindly gave me a signed paperback copy of his book.

Now, I'm not a fan of the science fiction genre but this book is very well-written and the story is so good that I found that I wanted to keep reading. Personally, I think the book is a mix of science fiction, fantasy and adventure so it will have a good deal of appeal to many readers. Graham has a great writing style and knows how to spin a good yarn.

Disclaimer: I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. To review the book was not mandatory.

When I first started to read Zein: The Prophecy (and for the first quarter maybe), I had mixed feelings about the book.

It starts with a secondary story that happened a long time before the book. Since it was mixed with the actual story, I felt it was slowing it down. I know it's a thing with many science-fiction so I will try not to hold it against Mr. Wood. While it's not my cup-of-tea, I know some peopl

Zylar of the Zein race plans to destroy all who oppose him in his quest to occupy the earth. His purpose in doing so is to wipe out humanity and strip the planet of its zinithium, a rare element currently unknown to mankind, but highly prized by the Zein.

Zylar is not without opposition, however. A prophecy speaks of two brothers that will defeat him: Kabel Blackstone, the nephew hidden from Zylar at birth, and Tyson Mountford, Kabel’s human half-brother. Together, these three characters lock in

I picked this up while browsing as the synopsis sounded really good,and i was right.A fun scifi adventure with a dash of fantasy.Very likeable characters(which is important to me or i get bored fast) and a very evil,albeit,stereotypical bad guy/evil uncle,although he is kinda badass,going down the magical dark side.
The Zein living alongside humans,although masked from sight was a nice touch,and adding Manchester and Old Trafford into the mix made consequences in the story feel more wicked.

Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy this book. The plot began and ended nicely, but the middle of it bored me, and the only characters I liked were Bailey and the Changeling. Those two were cool, though. Funny and sarcastic, yet caring in their own ways.

I have shelved this book for now, probably forever, unless I get very very bored.

If I had to say one good thing about it...it has a very pretty cover.

But the writing...seriously...does the world need another rip-off of Eragon?

This book needed a decent editor. Unfortunately it didn't get one.
