This book is well written with a unique storyline. I'm an avid reader and it's somewhat difficult for me to find books that grab my attention and keep it throughout. Chadham creates a world with fresh ideas and a fun plot. This book could be read and enjoyed by anyone ranging from a preteen to an elder.
The character development is one of the best features of this book. The characters grow as the story goes on and they are very relatable. There are characters who are evil, characters who are fla

An excellent read! Fast paced, full of interesting characters that are genuine and flawed. Hard to put down. A few difficulties pronouncing some of the character's names, but I think that comes with reading fantasy novels- everything is unique. Without giving away spoilers, an evil force is introduced right at the beginning and throughout the novel I wasn't disappointed by the way the author evolved the mystery of what truly was coming. And I even laughed a few times along the way. I found the c ...more

A fun and easy read. You will enjoy this book even if you're not a fantasy fan. The good natured writing style of Thomas makes even dark moments in the book part of the fun. Action and humour are in ample supply and the pace makes it hard to put down. ...more

This book was a fun, and adventurous story; the characters were easy to get to know and the story was thrilling! It is light hearted but at the same time has some deep realizations. Draz has got to be one of the most interestingly twisted characters I’ve ever met, so much dark humour.

Overall was a great book to read... I can’t wait for the next in the series!!

Thomas lives with his wife, Lauren, in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Ever since he was a child, he has been a fan of fantasy fiction. Thomas fell in love with the world that developed around him, starting with a few characters. With time, he discovered the storey hidden there, his first novel and the first instalment of the Draz'Khasha Chronicles in this volume.

A Light From Below far surpassed my expectations by a fresh new author prepared to put his stamp on the literary world.
I was quickly drawn into the plot, eager to get to know the characters and their stories and share in their struggle.
Once I began I could hardly put it down.
If you are a fan of the genre, don't sleep on this one!

I really enjoyed A Light from Below I thought it was very well written and easy to follow! Can’t wait to see where the next book in this series takes us. I developed an interest in the characters early on and the connection only got stronger as the story developed. I’m not normally a Fantasy reader but this book has me converted. Anxiously awaiting for more from this new author.
