In the Books featuring Three by Ron Glick

Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of In the Books, featuring Three by Ron Glick.

Disclaimer: I was given a free ebook copy in exchange for an honest review.

Three

About the Book: Everyone has a past that affects their present – but not many have their present affect their past.

The latest sword has awoken, but it is unlike any of the others that have come before. Three is not a sword that controls perception or elemental power, but instead gives its wielder mastery over time itself. What better way to destroy a Godslayer than to send him to a time before he ever was one?

And without the Godslayer in the present, who can possibly stand against a conspiracy of immortals seeking revenge against their errant parents, the Gods themselves?

Three is the third volume of the Godslayer Cycle, the nine book epic destined to redefine the power of divinity within fantasy fiction forever.

My Review: As a fantasy fan, I’ve enjoyed the author’s books and this one didn’t disappoint. One of the hardest things to do in a series is keeping things fresh and original while continuing the previous storyline. In Three, the author succeeds on both counts.

The story flows well and delves into aspects not normally attributed to the epic fantasy genre like time travel. I thought it was an awesome concept to take Nathaniel back in time. In doing so, the author captured the mentality of a person living during a time where science fiction concepts doesn’t exist. It added new depth to Nathaniel and opened the door to expand on Bracken’s character. Personally, I’m stoked to find out what happens to Bracken in future installments.

The only downside for me is that the book ends with a cliffhanger. It’s not a bad thing considering it’s a series, but I wasn’t ready for it to end. I can’t wait to read the next book.

About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
