CHILDREN OF THE HALO

Dinos And Prophecies Oh My

By Sonja Nitschke, editor

Aug 10, 2008: I’ve enjoyed all fifteen chapters so far.

I don’t know why I did—normally I don’t enjoy prophecy tales where a select few can alter everybody else’s fates, but I found that part of the story easy enough to overlook.

Perhaps it’s because there is such a diverse cast of characters (and I didn’t have too hard a time remembering who was who which is saying something since my memory is lousy). Or the fact that there are walking, talking dinosaurs and ferrets. Or maybe it’s because their magicks strike my Science Fiction Lite chord in just the right way (I say that knowing this is a fantasy novel, but I can’t really help the way the story affects me).

Or maybe it’s the fact that the world in which these Canadians eventually find themselves is real and their response to the situation was believable as well.

The author describes the world without going into overdrive. The prophecy and legends/history is not info dumped to us all at once.

Over all, a good read and I look forward to more.
