Five Star Review on Amazon By Bobo
No seriously, I thoroughly enjoyed this work by Seth Ring. In many ways, I would count this among my favorites, and have high hopes for future works from Seth Ring. Well crafted story line with a main character that doesn’t really pity himself, but has a drive and willpower to overcome adversity; yet, you still see glimpses of a vulnerable side to the character. The author presents a flawed person as your main character who’s character is not overshadowed by self-consciousness, personal ailments, or flaws, but by an incredible drive and willpower. While in some senses you start with a somewhat traditional element(at least not an unusual element) of a wealthy person with health issues, you are still presented with someone that has a strong sense of self…a solid foundation in moral principles despite the adversity. While not unique, it is very good to see, and well written in this case.
Definite must read, and definite author to follow in the genre for future works.
About the Author
Growing up traveling between the USA and Ghana, West Africa, books were Seth’s constant companions. As he grew, so to did his imagination. To vent his thoughts and ideas, Seth would spend hours telling his fantastical tales of heroes and villains, of magic, technology, and skill. This eventually morphed into a love of games and story-telling that has continued to this day. Eventually, Seth thought it would be a good idea to write some of his stories down since he was running out of room in his head. Seth Ring currently lives with his wife and kids in the United States of America.
