The Realms Thereunder by Ross Lawhead – A book review

I recently recieved a copy of this book (a link will follow this post) and would like to share my thoughts about it with you.

The first impression I got when looking at this book was that the front cover looked interesting, enough to make me flip the book over and take a look at the blurb on the back to see if I wanted to continue this journey with the book.

Thats where things got a little hairy. I like sci-fi-fantasy books, mystery books, christian romance (by that I mean romance books without the junk and garbage that is basically porn without pictures that is so prevalent today), and a few select suspense books. I say a few select because I have a very vivid imagination and alot of suspense/thriller books are scary to me! I might be a chicken, but if a book is going to be scary, I might read it. That is not to say that I dont enjoy scary parts in the book, but I don’t enjoy creepy books. Whew, now that that is said, I was not sure after reading the blurb on the back that I wanted to continue, but while it made me a little nervous to read it, it also piqued my curiousity just enough that I wanted to see where the adventure of reading this book would take me.

I am only a short ways into the book, and I am not disappointed that I decided to continue the reading.

More impressions of the book, are: The map in the front of the book was hard to distinguish and see what it was supposed to be. If I see a map, I want to be able to read it and see whats going on it in.

Next was: I LOVED walking into the middle of a conversation on the first page of the book. I have started writing my own book and have used that exact type of introduction, so that earned bonus points in my book.

To top all of that off, I was super excited to read a book by ANY Lawhead, but I am starting to really look forward to Ross Lawhead’s books.

I am looking forward to see where the rest of the book will take me, look for more posts to follow concerning the contents of the book.

As always, I am pretty sure that In conjunction with the CSFF Blog Tour, I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.

  1. Hi, Becky, sorry you didn’t get on the list with the other participants.

    Until you mentioned it, I’d completely forgotten there was a map, because like you, I want one that actually helps me understand things, not confuse me more. I’m guessing it might be more helpful in future books.

    Hey, I like your new look here. Happy to see your move is complete and you can concentrate a little more on the things you enjoy. Hope that means more blog tours. 😉

    Becky
