    This is probably the most lightning-speed paced book I've read. It can be a boon or a curse, or even both, depending on your preferences.It was great when chapters full of action went by without stopping, throwing more and more danger at the group that was just formed and had internal problems between some members.A bit lacking when grudges held for decades end a few days later, or when they get injured or even die. The best example of how the pace is both great and lacking is when some terrible [...]

    Full review is here, on my blog.This story follows Kara, who is a student at Solyr, which is a magical school. She’s a pretty typical eighteen year old girl, other than having orange eyes, being one of the most powerful teenagers ever, and generally being magically badass compared to her peers.People in this world can use glyphs, which are like symbols that are drawn in blood that have different effects on the world around them. Most people have one sort of specialization, like healing or fire [...]

    There's some very good things to this book and not so good things. And a lot of those things are the same thing.If you like fast paced fiction and deliberate echoes of the sort of stories and action found in Dragon Age, then this book is for you. It does great at those things. However, the speed of the plot and amount of lengthy action scenes means the characters are not the best established.Unfortunately, I view character as king and have something of an aversion to magic-heavy action. This boo [...]

    There's a lot of good stuff here - the writing was solid, the characters strong, the magic interesting. The world was particularly engaging (especially the mythology and the underworld), and there were enough ideas to fill several series worth of books. Sadly, for me it was let down by the pacing. It felt like things were happening way too fast, to the point that it was hard to get a handle on all the stuff going on. This was a significant problem for me right from the beginning through to the e [...]

    This is my review from :Glyphbinder by Eric Bakutis is a brilliant debut fantasy novel by the author and it delivers an imaginative and wonderfully unique world that every fantasy reader must take the time to enjoy. The author has created a world with strong, vibrant and memorable characters coupled with a highly imaginative and unique school of magic that is bound by the use of glyphs and entrancing in the attention to detail in how it functions. It is a refreshing new title in fantasy.Glyphbin [...]

    Once upon a time in a land far, far away . . . That’s how every fantasy novel begins. In Glyphbinder, Eric Bakutis’ debut novel, the place is a cottage where the birth of a child threatens the entire world. A plot to prevent this is hatched, memories are alerted, the daughter is born. Welcome to the creation of Eric Bakutis’ fertile imagination. Soon Kara, the daughter, having turned eighteen and graduated from glyphbinder school, begins a journey with no idea of what she is about to face [...]

    When I bought this book on my tablet, I started reading it, and really liked it. Then I put it down and read something else. This happened a second time about a month later. This time I decided I'd go ahead and actually read it. But now I wonder if I should have simply set it aside again, because I didn't really enjoy it very much. I should have liked the characters, especially Kara, but they started to blend together in my head, and I didn't care enough to keep them straight. There were some pa [...]

    I enjoyed this fast paced book more than I thought I would, since I'm not a gamer. This is high fantasy, set in a world in the midst of a great power struggle between two superior forces. We don't really know which is the force for good; in fact, we don't really understand the nature of the conflict until the very end. The story is full of action, with plenty of fights, magical phenomena, and mysterious characters. While I didn't always understand the significance of the events due to a very com [...]

    I'm lying as I didn't actually read the whole book. I stuck with it as long as I did because it was the only thing on my kindle. A friend dropped a book off for me today and I thought I'd quickly finish this and see if there were any redeeming features, but when I saw I still had an hour to go, I couldn't do it. I did finish 75% and honestly it just got worse as I read on.r have I read a book so filled with action which was so boring. I just couldn't care lessway too many wacky machinations and [...]

    I wanted to like this book so much. There were parts I really did like, actually, but then everyone started to die then were brought back to life, but they were changed and the one poor guy let himself be sent to hell to be tortured, for a girl that didn't love him back, then SHE went psycho demon summoner when her boo got killed, only he's not deador is he? Now someone has to figure out how to save everyone's souls and I still think some or all of the companions are undead. Yeah. I can't finish [...]

    Review Excerpt: I laughed at this book. I cursed at this book. I sighed in frustration and mentally beat my head against a wall at this book. Basically, against the type of books I normally read, it was a good book. For a fantasy book? Its the best I’ve read in several years.Want to see my full review? Click here

    Very cool magic system and world! There are some typos, but overall the writing is solid and the team of friends saving the world is epic. I wish I had felt more of a connection to the main characters, but definitely recommended for fantasy fans.

    A solid debut. Great characters and wildly imaginative. A few pacing issues but nothing so bad as to stop from enjoying the book. I look forward to Book 2 and watching this new author grow.
