Author Essay

Bob is perhaps best known for writing terrific battle scenes. But after reading The Demon Awakens I think he’ll be renowned for creating a whole new world. Rich in characterization, myths and legends, action and emotion, the world is enthralling. In particular, one of the aspects of the world I like very much is the magic stones. There are many different stones, different colors, different sizes, and they contain different types of powers. Soon after I read the book I asked Bob about them. In fact, I thought I had detected a situation where one of the characters had forgotten about a stone they had in their possession and had failed to use it at a crucial moment. I was wrong and I found out that Bob assiduously keeps track of each and every stone that is mentioned in the world. For any stone, he can tell you where it is or who had it last and where and when it was lost. That level of detail and involvement by an author shines through in the story. I look forward to many more books in this world!
