City of the Falling Sky, by Joseph Evans

After reading the first chapter of City of the Falling Sky by Joseph Evans, my stomach did that nervous little twitter thing it does whenever I know I’m going to read something good. City of the Falling Sky is Evans first published novel, I believe, and it’s very good. Not perfect, but very good. While Joseph mentions on his website that he was influenced by Harry Potter, I found City of the Falling Sky unique. Seckry, the main character, is likable… almost lovable. In fact, Evans does a great job of making all his characters memorable. Also, there are some interesting twists in the story that I didn’t see coming. My only complaint might be the names he chose for some of the older characters, which sounded a bit silly to me. A minor complaint in all. For the young adult reader, there’s plenty of romance.I look forward to seeing how Evans grows as an author. City of the Falling Sky is obviously only just the beginning…
