Author’s Bio

Born in Chicago and raised in a suburb of Syracuse, NY I then moved to Vicksburg, MS where I still live. I started writing fiction in college after getting a few A’s on my Composition class papers and have kept at it until I finally decided to see if people were interested in reading what I was writing. I spent most of my career as a police officer and would write as a way to burn off stress. Child of Creation is my first published book and I am looking for some feedback to tell me if I am on the right track here or not.

My Review

5 stars

Lark lives in a small village with his parents when they are murdered. Lark is sent out on his own and discovers a young lady. He ends up joining her and learns that the stories that he has been told all his life are real and there is much more to the world than what he knows. Lark is a very important young man and will be needed by his God to create.

Lark travels along with his companions to the Great Western Fair. Along the way he is going to meet a lot of creatures and people and learn plenty of his world. He is also going to learn that not everyone is going to help him and many want to stop him.

This is a wonderful epic fantasy story. I love Lark, he is thrown into a huge world and is a fish out of water. As he travels he meets many creatures, some we have seen before and some that are fresh creations. Ultimately he learns that he is the Child of Creation and is the key to prevent the eastern hordes from crossing the Great Divide and destroying the western people.

This is a wonderful story that will leave you hanging. Yes, there is a huge cliff hanger, be prepared, that will leave you wanting more from Robert Donohue.

I received Child of Creation from PR by the Book for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
