The Unknown Man (The Keepers of the Orbs)The Unknown Man by J.G. Gatewood
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This one is a mixture of hits and misses while showing promise for improvement in future writings. The writing feels rough at times, needing polish and editing. The characters are a bit too over the top and have a few inconsistencies that take away from something good. The plot has that familiar fantasy thread with little to offer outside the box, but still manages to remain interesting. I’m a bit disappointed with the world building as I feel it could really make this a much better read with more fleshing and a dash of creativity. There are moments that are well done. The inconsistencies bother me as it takes so much away from the experience. I would expect later books to read better as the author learns with experience. I received an evaluation copy from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
