Wow! Just, wow! That’s exactly what I thought when I finished reading Soil-Man: Symphony Book One by debut author Oz Monroe. This book is an epic beginning to what should be, by all accounts, an absolutely fantastic new series. Follow the story of Jon Aesop as he struggles to make sense of his world after what appears to be an angel tortures and kills his family. Formerly a man without religious belief, Jon must now suspend his previous disbelief in order to find his wife’s soul. Fighting through bands of murderous angels to meet his goal, Jon seeks answers to the afterlife that he suspended long ago. And when he meets up with Var, an angel abomination, one who has existed for centuries - obsessed with revenge, hunting from the shadows - what they discover together in hell will change everything, forever.
I loved Soil-Man: Symphony Book One. Loved. It. How’s that for a review? Well, it’s truly how I felt about author Oz Monroe’s fantastic new book. Unique, creative, edge of your seat adventure are just a few ways that I could describe this book, but in many ways, Soil-Man is indescribable. It’s very rare for me to find a book that I find to be a real original. I’m a voracious reader, and it seems that many books follow similar templates, similar story lines. But Oz Monroe has managed to move away from that and he provides his readers with a plot line that they will not have read before. His scene setting skills are simply second to none, his characterizations are vivid, and his overall storytelling skills are superb. Any reader who likes a good book of supernatural fiction, or just a great work of fiction in general, should absolutely read Soil-Man as soon as they possibly can. I, for one, cannot wait to read more from the incredibly promising new author, Oz Monroe, as soon as possible, and hope that he is deep into the second book of this series. If it’s anything like Soil-Man, it will be a book that is not to be missed!
