Book Review – Isles of Myst by Robert McClain

Isles of MystIsles of Myst by Robert McClain
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Isles of Myst reads like a science fiction story that has the soul of a fantasy, or maybe it’s an urban fantasy with the soul of a science fiction. Either way, you’ll find a blending of the two here.

This is a dark and gritty tale with flawed but sympathetic characters. It is set in a rich world full of different cultures, though at times I found myself a little overwhelmed with the many different nationalities, trying get my head around them all.

Anyone familiar with the Bible will find much that is familiar, but everything is given a sci-fi/fantasy twist. It is difficult to say more than this without giving spoilers, but suffice it to say that this becomes quite an epic story, building up its own mythology. It will keep you trying to guess and second-guess what is actually going on here.

If you’re looking for something a little different, check out the Isles of Myst.
