4* The Emerald Tablet (Legends of Amun Ra, #1) by @Jg_Silverman #ReviewShare #Fantasy

The Emerald Tablet (Legends of Amun Ra, #1)The Emerald Tablet by Joshua Silverman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My first impression was - I truly enjoyed the second book in Legends of Amun Ra. It was rich and well told. When I read the first book, it showed the writer's inexperience in terms of telling his story and world building. Some of the descriptions were clunking and too much time was spent on forcing the reader to see things the author's way.

As I got to the middle, I felt - The mythology aspects of the book had me hooked and by now the characters are developed enough that I want to know more. The plot is twisted at this point and I did not know what to expect.

As I neared the end, I thought - Readers are given doses of science fiction and fantasy through characters who are reeling from power, loss, betrayal and love. Slow to start but definitely a book that ended with a bang.

My final impression and recommendations - I was pleasantly surprised that the book got better as I went along. I almost half expected for it to end the way it started which was slow. I recommend that the Legends of Anmun Ra books be read in the correct order. Recommended.
