Oh no... I feel terrible rating the book 2 stars, because I hate being the one to drag down ratings...
I *would* give the book 4 stars for concept, because it's got a really neat concept, alike enough to high fantasy stories I've read before that I loved it, but absolutely unlike anything I've read before at the same time!

But unfortunately, the technical writing of the book and the way the story was presented really drag the rating down to 2 stars, or "It's okay" territory.

The good:

Christopher D. Abbott has deftly intertwined mythology, romance, betrayal, despair and hope in Songs of the Osirian. A story spanning the annals of human history, a story of evil vs good. His character creation is excellent, you feel empathy towards the characters on both sides of the divide. Why? Because they're so believable in the context of the story, Christopher has shown no bias, you get to see why the characters have / give justification for the acts that they have committed and go on to ...more

A fantastic page turner, once started I couldn't put it down. Character development is strong and I quickly found myself becoming very attached to some of the main cast. The pace of the story is quick (at times relentless!) which only helps to highlight the World shattering events the characters find themselves swept up within. I am a big fan of Fantasy and the alternate reality that Christopher builds is steeped in Ancient Egyptian mythology, rich and epic. Here's hoping for more please Christo ...more

Not my usual choice of read but think this may have converted me, I couldn't put it down. Loved it and can't wait for the next book.

Songs of The Osirian by Christopher D Abbott is an epic tale of good and evil. It is a tale of the enduring power of light in a world where darkness is relentless. I like the idea of a force for good quietly teaching men a better way through age after age of the rise and then fall of civilizations. There is a great foreword by Chase Masterson and I think Songs of Osirian will reach a lot of eager fans. And if a great novel and a great foreword are not enough for you then there is a bonus short s ...more

This is definitely not a genre I tend to pick up on my own, but when a friend asked me to beta read, I couldn't resist. It took a while for me to get through, partially because I was reading the ebook, not my usual format either! It did start to grow on me. Fascinating how, during this election season, so many stories seem to be breaking down to good vs. evil! I shall have to read the next book--I must know what happens next!
