Jul 9, 2012: "And the Skies Fell" is great – just the thing if you’ve got a yen for a good fantasy tale. I’d say it sits somewhere between "high" and "low" fantasy – there’s magic, and the world appears to be in peril, but at least where I’m up to, the characters are all human (or divine) and the setting is roughly medieval with some middle eastern influences. S. L. Gray has created an interesting world with elements of politics, magic and adventure.
The first three or so chapters are a little confusing; our protagonist is experiencing disorienting and mysterious dreams, which require fairly active reading to keep up with what’s going on. Towards the end of Chapter 3, there’s a bit more explanation, and it was this point at which I really sat up and thought, "Oh, this is going to be INTERESTING."
S. L. Gray has a strong, confident writing style, which is a pleasure to read and I can’t wait to see where the story takes us.
