GUEST REVIEW BY PELICAN FREAK REVIEWS
The unexpected arrival of an ill-omened war sword serves as the perfect catalyst for the wild fire of revenge and dark magic poised to engulf four embattled brothers and their father’s illustrious crown. Set in the feudal kingdom of Valgary, the novel “Divine” explores the first grim chronicles of an undefeated Pangean bloodline of Kings and Warlords shaken to its very core when the powerful King Vagrath’s youngest son, Royal, is unintentionally thrust into the role of his father’s successor over his vengeful older brothers, Genesis, and the vain cold-hearted twins, Grieves & Mourn.
L.C. “Lamar Calvin” Davis Jr grew up an army child and currently resides in the military town of Clarksville,
Tennessee. He is a film school graduate, avid gamer and hopes to one day become a premier southern novelist in modern day literature. His debut novel series, Divine, was crafted with the intention of becoming his first contract between himself the author and the rest of the
world as readers. Die hard supporters and fan art are what keep him going.
REVIEW BY PELICAN FREAK REVIEWS
The overall situation is gripping and I’m drawn in, despite the poor continuity and spelling errors. What holds me is the author’s way of description – I’ve got a vivid picture in my mind and it causes me to want to go on. While it does need some work, it’s not bland.
Chapter One reads more like a prologue… the book does pick up from Two. The book is a fantasy and at times it reads like it’s from times past and at times it doesn’t. The voice is a bit inconsistent.
I quite like that it’s written in present tense as I rarely see that – this is refreshing. Overall – it does have some promise and it is pretty easy to get into and follow.
I do recommend the author edit for continuity and blatant spelling issues as a little bit of help with bring a more streamlined read. The book does have drama and action – two gripping aspects.
Three stars – and it’d likely be four if it were more professionally presented.
