Evan Burl and the Falling
Book review by Lisa Whitten
Thursday Review Contributing Writer
Young Adult fiction is not something I normally reach for. After the stress of college classes as an older student I was looking for something a little light to read between classes, so I picked up Evan Burl and the Falling. Far from light reading, this story proved to be captivating and difficult to put down.
Fallings arrive in a most unusual way. They fall from the sky inside of a chest. The Fallings seem to be indestructible. When injured they heal very quickly and seem to be immune to death. That is until the Affliktion happens. Evan is desperate to find out what is causing the Fallings to become ill and die.
In a mythical land the orphans are raised in an old, worn, castle, Daemanhour. With secret rooms, sapients, a wicked step-uncle with evil wards and no escape. A mysterious book where writing appears from nowhere. Writing about Evan.
Evan was abandoned by his father and living at the castle is all he remembers. After stealing the mysterious book from his Uncle things began to change for Evan. He only has a short time to discover who he really is and can he change the outcome of what he will become?
A sequel is in the works and I am looking forward to reading it. You can visit the author's website at: Evan Burl. There is an offer for a free signed copy from author, Justin Blaney.
