A wonderful fantasy story. The prologue is short and straight into action what the story is about. How long has it been? How long have I been wandering through this cold and frightening place, alone? Ten billion years perhaps? No. Much more than that. I am cold and tired. I just want to rest, in a place that I can call home. I would like to thank author Ricky Baxter for sending me this paperback to read.

While the plot is full of twists, turns and excitement, I was, at times, left feeling like it was a

The Seventh Blessing by R.L. Baxter is uniquely told from first-person point of view, which isn't typically what readers prefer. So, if you're up for the challenge or are the rare person who enjoys first-person, then this is your book.

The is a debut novel for the new author and is a good attempt at working out a story. There are many mistakes throughout the book, but you'll find the characters engaging and I did enjoy the jokes that fell flat. You can see his dry sarcasm shining through.
