Review: Omniverse by Liam Parker

6 Mar

 

Omniverse: book 1 of the omniverse chronicles by Liam Parker is a fantasy that follows Vietnam veteran turned lawyer Jack Thornton as his life is turned upside down when he is pulled into a cosmic battle of good and evil. Right from the beginning you will find yourself hooked by the surreal dreams and eerie visions of purple eyes that haunt Mr. Thornton’s nights. The story takes you deeper as your interest is peeked by events that give you a sense that you are entering into a supernatural realm. As you read on you will find yourself find that, along with Jack, you are being recruited into the eternal war that reach across the when/where.

Much the same as Steven King, Ilona Andrews and other writers of fantasy, Mr. Parker brings together magic, spiritualism, myth and everyday reality to create a world that readers can lose themselves in for hours at a time. It is a world filled with well developed characters like Sean Plunkett, the former IRA (Irish Republican Army), Brighid Cassidy, Brigadier Ian Masterman, Heinrich Kuhl and others that make Mr. Parker’s world come to life.

If there is one drawback to the book it is that Mr. Parker can get a little too caught up in detail but not enough that it takes away from the beauty of the story. Overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a good fantasy that can capture the imagination.
