Fantastic finale to a wonderful series! Apr 13, 2007
Dark Tyrant's Ascension, the third book in the Orianus Creation Series is another great literary work by D. Shane Burton. Throughout this series I have been amazed at Burton's literary craftsmanship. His work is not filled with fluff, nor does he try to impress the reader with his vocabulary as some authors try to do. That being said, there is great profundity in this series. I have said this in my other reviews but it bears repeating, the author makes you think. It is refreshing to read a novel that is not formulaic or predictable. I especially enjoyed in this particular novel the depth in which he dealt with the spirit realm. Several amazing scenes are crafted where we see the interaction and influence of angels and demons on humans. It very much changed my perspective on things and motivated me to do further study on the subject. I have also immensely enjoyed the character development in the series. There have been critics who have said that there are too many characters and that they are not developed fully. I very much disagree with them! The characters have a way of making you feel as if you were in the conversation with them. I have found that I am drawn into their stories and cannot pull myself away. Burton's work will entertain, inspire, and challenge you as a reader. If you are looking for a refreshing change of pace from what is normally available, I encourage you to pick up this series soon!
Thrilling conclusion to a wonderful trilogy Oct 6, 2006
I'm sure it's difficult to write a fitting ending to a lengthy trilogy, but D. Shane Burton does it masterfully. I thoroughly enjoyed this third book in his Orianus Creation series. The characters are all intriguing, whether it be the evil Lord Daroth, the noble Galesh, or the cuddly miniature mammoth-like creature Snaggle. Glimpses into the spirit realm of angels and demons make the story even more fascinating.
Thanks to the author for creating a rich world in which I enjoyed spending some time and wouldn't mind visiting again.
Part of the family Sep 25, 2006
As mentioned in the previous review the characters of this series have become my friends. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I believe I said this about Shane's books before but it bares repeating. A good book makes me laugh, cry and takes me to a place other than my world. Shane hit it out of the park with this one. All the characters come together in the climatic end and I was left in a sense of awe, surprise, and satisfaction. I love how 2 certain brothers were allowed to partake of God's glory together (that made me cry). The insight on the spiritual war going on all around us makes me realize that God wants none of us to perish. The warfare is for our souls and we don't have a clue what is really going on in the spiritual realm. If we truly have Guardian Angels I look forward to meeting mine.
This series is well worth your time and effort to read. Buy all three because you can't read just one!
Shane has been blessed with a gift and I look forward to whatever he has in works next. Keep writing my friend!
Fellowship of the Ring Aug 29, 2006
I remember when the final scene of the Lord of the Rings Return of the King played and the movies of the Tolkien Trilogy were over. I all of a sudden had a sense of great loss, it was over, all the lands, battles, peoples, friends, foes, legends, and all the other wonders of the movies had ended. I was sad and sort of down hearted to say the least. This is how I feel now, that I have read the last word on the last page of Dark Tyrant's Ascension. For weeks the worlds of this trilogy have been my home and the characters have been my friends. I will miss them sorely though their memory will live on in my memory for all time. I will always have a fondness for this "Fellowship of the Orianus Ring" and know all the peoples in it are in good hands until the return of their and my King, the Lord Jesus Christ. Thanks Shane for a marvelous journey.
Great Job! Love the use of the Angels. Nov 13, 2005
Another Great Job!! As a reader, I enjoy being challenged by the story and the characters. This book was not an easy read compared to the last two (Or maybe the less challenging books I've been reading lately), but it was well worth the effort. There are many details and characters you need to absorb so you can fully appreciate the beauty of this book. I love Shane's use of the spirit world battles and how it affects mortals. Shane, your seamless transitions of the angels into the story is the most amazing part of this book. I hope those who are reading this book already will encourage others to read it for it sheds great light on what is probably happening in our on lives this very second. I encourage anyone unsure to read it! You will see some of yourself, and the battles you are in, somewhere in this book... I know I did. The book is Science fiction, but the reality of the struggles pertains to us today and everyday. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and even the loss of one of my favorite characters was done with grace and didn't spoil the final.
