Alex McCann Johnson is a new-to-me author and his debut book, Vindico is fantastic. It's a mythological young reader's book, but it's filled with action and it's never boring. It truly kept me turning the pages. By the end of the book, I was sitting there in awe over the fact that I really enjoyed the plot, characters, and the author's over all effort in the creation of this first book in the trilogy. Fantasy style books usually leave me a little confused at some point but with Alex's fresh writing and passion for his characters and plot, it really gripped me and pulled me into the story line.
I loved the names that Alex gave his characters. Zirk Zirk. I loved that name! He had the taste of human life, but now, he rages on in battles with Vindico as an immortal. And, of course there's also Logan, Apollo and Vindico. Each of these characters had their own unique personality, yet they blended perfectly in this world of fantasy to create a story that grips the reader. This book is filled with wonderful action and warring between the characters, all the while, there are friendships being forged between the mortals and immortals. It's a battle that causes great victory for some and great loss for others. As the battles rage on, Vindico comes to term with his ability and he accepts himself for what he truly is.
Each character brings spice to this epic story. The reader gets to experience the battles, fighting, and the immortal world of fiction. For the time that you read this book, you will escape into a whole new world of being able to live forever. Be prepared to fight battles to protect the immortal world and to protect humanity. It's all epic and it's a fantastic work of fiction!
So whether you are looking for fast paced action, fantasy filled battles or just looking for a new, fresh voice of fiction, this is a book that I would recommend to all readers young and old. This is an author who is sure to rise to the top and complete this trilogy with numerous fans waiting for each new release. Definitely worthy of 5 stars for capturing this non-fantasy lover's attention with a fantastically written book!
