General Opinion: I have to say that I was very thrilled when Serban asked me to review his book and I was glad to accept. But because I had so many exams and problems, I couldn’t read it until yesterday and I want to apologize for this. I started reading “Crux’ yesterday at 10 o’clock and finished at 5am. This is an incredible fantasy and everyone should read it. I couldn’t put it down until the very last page. I am very pleased and amazed by this book !
What I liked the most: The world-building. It’s just wow! Such an incredible story, described with a lot of talent and passion. I loved the world that Serban created!
The book is full of action! I couldn’t get bored while reading it and the thought of sleep couldn’t make me put it down. So many things happen in just 320 pages (I can’t believe I read 320 pages in just one night! Lol) and this is stunning.
I seriously thing that this book has it’s on personality. No kidding here. It’s just outstanding. Different, with a great rhythm, story and world, this is probably the best fantasy I’ve read this year so far. “Crux” is more than a book. “Crux” is a real world, with strong, real characters and a story that sometimes Is so dark!
Another thing that made me LOVE this book is Kara. I haven’t met such a powerful character in a long time.Loved her!
What I disliked: Uhm…. Nothing?
Final Opinion: “Crux” is an incredible book! I loved every single word of it and I couldn’t ge enough of it! Best fantasy I’ve read this year!!
I recommend it to: Everyone, but mainly to fantasy lovers.
Would I read it again: Definitely!
Do I want to read the sequel: Do I need to say ‘Yes’?
Rate: 5 stars out of 5
The mysterious planet Crux suffers silently with a terrible ancient curse. Holy entities and scheming lords of Hell manipulate their children like pawns in an agonizingly long game of chess, while the first Cherub Innanna, creator of the realm and savior of the Nephalem, is shackled inside a pocket dimension in eternal exile. Meanwhile a savior – the mysterious Nilithar – is summoned to Crux. The events to follow haven’t caught only the attention of the Cruxians, but the Angellove Society’s as well. The fabled group investigates the ancient prophecy through Thomas and Andrew, a powerful half-vampire and a mage of unthinkable potential, who travel across galaxies to find the girl. Forces beyond imagination will clash in an epic battle of Light versus Darkness, as Crux changes not only its landscape, but its inhabitants as well, and the strangest and most unlikely of heroes will rise and stand against complete annihilation.
