Everything that was begun in ‘Hopebreaker’--everything that made it good and made me like it--is continued in strong fashion in ‘Lifemaker.’ Our characters are still flawed but trying. Jacob is finding himself less “reluctant” in his reluctant hero status, although not quite a hero either.
This one was fun for me because of the underwater aspect. It reminded me of the television show Seaquest DSV, which I was a fan of and still watch on Netflix.
Still, it remains a “solid” read because there is little about it that’s truly mindblowing. Yet it’s fast-paced, fun, well-written and well-constructed. Even if it’s not sending off fireworks, there is a lot to be said for all of that in a world of sub-par books. This is another 4 Star book.
His epic fantasy trilogy, The Children of Telm, was released between 2013 and 2014.
