I enjoyed this book and will consider purchasing the rest of the books in the series (The Rising Tide and Eyes of Light). The story is very well written and you won't be bored at all. The characters are perfectly developed, the story feels. 📚

I spotted book one of the IA Series on Goodreads.com. I knew that I had to read them, and if they were as good as I hoped, my son would be reading them too. I read a lot of books, but not many are written (that I've seen) where it's fantasy with powers like this. This book's got it going on!
In book one, IA Initiate, by John Darryl Winston, you are introduced to people from both the past and the future. Young Naz is a boy trying to survive in the Exclave with his little sister. The world isn't quite like it used to be and Naz can't always remember things from his past, but that's where the mystery lies. Naz can do things, but this strange power is semi-dormant and he has no inkling on how to use it. He's always hearing voices, learning to use his abilities, fighting street gangs and pushing to give his sister a better life and he's covered in street It's then that he finds a sort of release. A release in a game he'd never really played before...
In IA B.O.S.S., the story picks up where Initiate ended, giving you an even more powerful story! The plot now falls on Naz against a terrible street bully/gang member. He's still keeping care of Meri while trying to stay out of danger but someone's after him! Also, you're given answers to questions formed from book one. This book gives you some deep information- like why Naz has no memory, his father and so much more. If you read book one, you can't thrive without the second.
John Darryl Winston is a proficient author and his method of writing is beyond reproach. The way the stories were woven takes a master's touch- I was in awe and gushing some serious admiration! The characters are in-depth, the emotions are true and the backgrounds are real enough to make you comfortable in this dystopian world. I wasn't sure about the story at first, but found myself mesmerized by the realism and especially with the love of his sister. Due mostly to the intricate lacing of the past and future, giving answers to Naz's background and powers. Before I realized it, I was all in and done!
A great read- check out both IA: Initiate and B.O.S.S. Check it out while I move on to the next read!📚

*An eBook Review
A story, told through the eyes of a child can be magical and full of expectation. I am so happy that I took a chance to relive a childhood through someone else's eyes. It's books like this one, The Doldrums, by Nicholas Gannon, that allow you to regress, to become a child again and dream dreams so large, you almost escape reality.
The Nocturnals: The Ominous Eye, by Tracey Hecht, is a fun, adventurous and very annoying tale. It tells the story of a sugar glider, a fox and pangolin, leaders of The Brigade and defenders of those in need. When something enters their homeland, a threatening beast, it's up to The Brigade to find out what 'it' is...
When I managed to get this book- I was shocked outta my gourd! I didn't think I'd get it- but violà - The Goblin Crown by Robert Hewitt Wolfe! Here it is and I couldn't be happier. I have to say that for starters: the cover!
I am always loving on book covers and this one gives me great pleasure for a couple of reasons. Number one, it reminds me of The Hobbit, by J. R. R. Tolkien- the movie. Did you see the original, animated movie? The goblin on this cover reminds me so much of the style and features, thus reminding me of my dad. He's the one who got me in to books, especially fantasy! I'm also in love with the detailing. There was a war going on in this book, with a few children caught up in the crossfire and this cover shows just how hazardous that journey was! It's neither bright nor gory, it just shows what's to be expected and I appreciated that.
I'd never heard of Wolfe before The Goblin Crown: Billy Smith and the Goblins but I think I'll be looking for more. Then again, I had- I just hadn't realized it! The dude's hand are all over my favorite shows: The Dresden Files, The 4400 and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine! But this isn't about shows; my review is based on both my thoughts and those of my son on this tale.
