This read was brought to you for free through Kindle. I literally just scrolled through the free books and picked one at random. Let’s see how that went!
Title: Knights: The Eye of Divinity
Author: Robert E. Keller
With simplistic writing and overly dramatic dialogue, this book had a number of pacing issues from the start. Lannon’s inner thoughts made me think of Gallivant. While I loved the tongue-in-cheek there, there were no winks to the audience here to suggest it’s satirical. At times, the serendipity of a meet cute or ‘spontaneous conversation’ is incredibly forced.
As I like to keep an eye out for naming patterns, majority in this book have six-letter, two-syllable names. If a name isn’t one, it’s most likely the other.
Equal length sentences abound. My love-hate relationship with commas resulted in a bit of a twitch throughout the book. There weren’t any splices, just missing commas. Keller capitalized a number of nouns which didn’t need it, and if the intent was to emphasize the importance, the frequency undermines its effectiveness.
