5 Stars for The Aduramis Chronicles 1-3.

The Aduramis Chronicles: The Definitive Collection: Volumes 1-3

Verified Purchase.

5 Stars.

Just for transparency, I used to work with Harrison a long time ago; however, after we each left that job we lost touch, Only when I was forced to use Facebook did we re-connect. At that time I found out he was an author, I have been told such by friends before and asked to read their “books” for it to be bad fanfic at best – so I admit, I was sceptical going in…..That said…..I was so very very wrong.

It has been a while since I read a book where I genuinely looked forward to the next time I had a chance to read. That is how I felt with the Aduramis Chronicles. I read it during my lunch at work, I read it before bed and I would even read it after getting home from work while my evening meal was cooking rather than watching TV.

The mix of magic (not an overpowering “I win stick”), sword and shield combat, fantasy races, pirates, dragons and almost steampunk airships was really well blended. Many of the main characters I gradually become more and more invested in. Redemption stories, grief and loss, impossible odds, acts of sacrifice, codes of honour – all can be found within the pages of this trilogy.

I have spent my life reading fantasy and sci-fi novels, and I can quite honestly say that the story arc and writing style would quite easily see this sitting on the shelf next to The Malazan Book of the Fallen, The Dragonriders of Pern (and the other series Anne McCaffrey wrote – Todd’s are on the bottom shelf, out of sight), my extensive Star Wars EU (now legacy) collection, Song of Ice and Fire and others.

If you are looking for a trilogy in this setting that is easy to read and does not melt your brain (looking at you Silmarilion) that I would give serious consideration to picking this up.

Every authors dream….

Or so you would think. After several years of writing works I am so very proud of. The money, time and effort invested to try and bring a quality product to market, and all you want is a little recognition for that hard slog. 

You receive through the post what you have dreamed of … a publishing contract.

That’s great you say. 

It normally would be, but any publisher worth its salt would not ask for £2500 upfront to publish your book. That could be construed as nothing more than vanity publishing. 

To say I’m not disappointed would be a lie. When I first opened it I was so happy and was shaking with excitement and then I read the contract fully and turned to several reliable internet sources for information and asked an author friend who had signed with them, for advice.

The outcome is, thanks for making me feel real disappointment, but no thanks. 

My work is too important and too good for this kind of contract. 

If you truly believe in my work, then sign fully.
