The veil between the heavens and the underworld has fallen.

Mesopotamia is a region with kingdoms at war. The desires of gods and men sweep across the Land Between the Two Rivers so frequently that peace is merely a memory of a forgotten time. Demons and shape shifters lurk in the shadows, sorcerers and soothsayers warn of impending danger, and a demigod sits in the eye of

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

This author, Felix Alexander, has an interesting writing style. This is the second book of his I've read. I'm happy to say that 'Shadows Of Time: The Amulet Of Alamin' is another good read. The plot isn't boring or a struggle to get through. I liked the way the characters were developed. As someone that heavily appreciates strong female character development, I enjoyed Inanna and Safia. Two strong lady characters who handled themselves well t

Before diving into my review, I want to disclose that I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

And honestly? This book was AWESOME.

I have always been interested in ancient stories and ancient mythology, so when I received "Shadows of Time: The Amulet of Alamin," I was thoroughly excited. That excitement wasn't displaced at all. his book kept me on the edge of my seat!

Felix Alexander's novel follows the story of Alamin, who holds a coveted amulet. This amulet has enormous power surro

Inanna has always protected her son, that’s why she made sure he always wore the amulet. But with her kingdom on the brink of war with another, he disappears, apparently because the amulet is protecting him - even from her. Can she find her way through a war torn Mesopotamian landscape, fighting both mortal and immortal to save her son?

This is a long book. A looooonnnnng book. It has a lot of exposition and backstory, but really my formatting made it way longer than it needed to be - the font w

'Shadows of Time: The Amulet of Alamin' is an action packed science fiction tale that literary took me to another world. After reading the first few pages I really found myself lost in it.

Alamin and Princess Safia set out on an ill-fated quest to escape those who wish him dead, and who wish to obtain an amulet fashioned out of the coveted Tablet of Destinies. They encounter an underworld of demons and gods and sorcerers and soothsayers. The plot has as many twists as a good roller coaster ride a

This is an epic read that incorporates the use of falsehoods and manipulation in the fight for regional sovereignty in a world of fantasy. Among and around the fighting for power is a healthy selection of demigods, shape shifters, sorcerers, angels and demons, but at a greater level still is an ongoing, powerful sense of family, and their determination to not give up, and do what they have to, to find each other.

I found this book a good flow of in-depth storytelling, with all the right elements

If you like fantasy, magic, and mystery then you might enjoy this book. However, I found it hard to follow as the story jumped around too much between scenes and characters. I had no idea what was going on at some points, and the plot seemed to make no sense at others. I liked the battle scenes, as they were very well written. The novel itself was interesting, and if it was tied together better, I would have enjoyed it more. There were points where I was reading about characters and scenes and i ...more

I’m not big on fantasy, myth books. I believe more in real science and while I’m willing to suspend disbelief up to a certain point, the image of mythical creatures: shape shifters, sorcerers, demons, gods, and immortals performing unbelievable tasks just do not compute much with me. Because of that I usually avoid fantasy genre. While the plot of this book sounded fascinating, I was a bit sceptical about reading it since it is a full-blown fantasy, but this book got me hooked right from the beg ...more

The Struggle for Power

Overall this book was very intriguing. There was lots of action and a variety of characters with interesting back stories. I enjoyed the way the author interweaved different mythologies with Christian stories and history. It reminded me of the story lines of the TV show “Once Upon a Time”. There were some points where the plot seemed disconnected, like there was a part of the story missing. The author was also too repetitive at times. However, the story was still very enjoy

*First of all I would like to say that I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.*

The title and the Goodreads synopsis captured my attention and I thought that I might enjoy the book. However, that was not the case at all when I actually started reading the book. I felt confused by the multitude of characters and plots in this book and the writing style at the beginning of the book made me cringe, especially some of dialogues. Although the writing style impro

Bailed! I just couldn’t get into this one. I got this book for free from Reading Deals in exchange for a honest review. The file I got was missing chapter 2, but even without that chapter, I just couldn’t bring myself to care about the characters or the situations. Only got through 10%
