A tale that combines lobsters and fantasy in fresh, fantastic way

By tripleblacktri, author of The Eternity Acts

Mar 22, 2017: The Glass Thief is a wonderful story that I’m glad I stumbled upon. The author states that this is unlike anything you’ve ever read before. And he is correct. It is 100 percent not an exaggeration. So if you want to read something different, this is your serial.

What makes it stand out? Well, the characters all are all lobsters and it works wonderfully. Besides being lobsters the characters are interesting and unique. They would work even as humans, but their current red-shelled selves do add to the story, adding distinct conflict to the story, the society itself, and of course the character’s relationships.

While the characters might be my favorite part of The Glass Thief, the story itself is not far behind. Following Staever through the first few chapters (beginning with a heist) is a delight as the author slowly feeds the reader morsels of relevant information. At first, I was a bit confused on certain parts, but I think I blame my lack of lobster knowledge. Everything was cleared up quickly, though.

I can’t wait to read more of The Glass Thief because it seems to be heading in a great direction. Just read the blurb and you’ll see what I’m talking about. As a fan of epic fantasy, this is a story you should not miss.

And finally, thinking back, I can’t recall any errors with punctuation or grammar.

Pros: Great story, interesting characters, professional writing, unique ideas Cons: Nothing really worth mentioning, maybe it takes a little to get used to a lobster world but once you’re in, it’s superb
