Review: Little Orphan Anvil (#1-3) by Joseph Beekman

Little Orphan Avil: The Complete TrilogyI loved this series!!! I had to read all of them!!!!  Here is my review for all Three:

I must start out with that the development of the characters in these stories is fantastic!  It is what hit me the most out of this trilogy of stories!  This is a fantastic read for anyone who likes YA or Adult Sci-fi and I would recommend to any of my Sci-Fi friends!   

The voices of all the characters can be found in these works.  Let me break down the three books a bit:

In the first book, it is the religious overtones that I found most interesting buried into the writing. I don’t know if they were intentional or not and that what makes them even better, but they are subtle enough they don’t take away from the story!  Book One really makes you want to dive right into book two!   

Now book two is called The Shades of Fate. What can I say that won’t give too much away?  It is a great follow up and there are new characters and an evil witch!  Who doesn’t like an evil witch!  I was sucked in just as quickly into book two as I was into book one and again I needed to continue with the series; it is one of the best sci-fi pieces of writing I have read in a very long time.   

Book Three is called The Gravelands of Fate and picks up right where book two ends!  It is a great climatic finish to this trilogy! As with the other two books, none of them have a dull moment!  It is action from word one!  It takes sci-fi and fantasy to a new level and is creative in the way the story is told from book one to book three!  

A Fantastic piece of writing!   

Now I said YA or Adult, but to tell the truth this would be good for any age!  If you need something to satisfy your sci-fi craving, look no further; this is the book you want!  The characters have a presence about them that I have been hard pressed to find in other books that would be suitable for readers of all ages. I am in love with these three books and will read them again and again!  5 exceptional sci-fi fairies!
