Book Review: Everville -- The First Pillar by Roy Huff

The First Pillar (Everville, #1)The First Pillar by Roy Huff
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The First Pillar by Roy Huff is a young adult fantasy novel. The story is about a young man named Owen Sage. He has just started college with his two friends, Anika and Dante. However, he finds himself transported into the world of Everville where he meets the Keeper and the Fron who need his help to fight off Them. The Keeper had previously brought balance back to Everville while he was still a young Fron named Caerwin.

The story is somewhat exciting if it were not so clipped and seemingly disjointed. Most of the twists and turns are rather predictable and even anticlimactic. There are times, while I was reading the book, that I felt there were things missing. The characters also seem to be underdeveloped. It is however, a good first attempt and I am hoping that the sequel will be more exciting with more developed characters.

The book will appeal to a lot of people who enjoy reading teen fantasy novels. I, though, can only give it two stars. That is not to say that the book is bad. It is an okay read but at times I felt it was more of a children's book that one meant for young adults.
