Berry's cast of characters are imperfect people whose authenticity warmed my heart-and broke it, infuriated me. .I wish I would have read this Port William book first because it gave me a great historical perspective on the main characters.

I wish I would have read this Port William book first because it gave me a great historical perspective on the main characters. Wendell is a fantastic writer and it seems as though I can relate to almost all of the characters.

Dwight A.G. Berry's "Fairasia" tells the story of a great war among various races of humans/humanoids in a fantasy land named, well...Fairasia. Years ago, the Mysion population was banished to the far north, beyond the Casca Boulder Range to a cold and unforgiving land bordering the frozen reaches of the Northern Sea. In this cursed land their bodies became deformed and disfigured, developed sores and lesions that caused constant pain and drip pus. Basically, they live an utterly miserable existence. Trapped in this hellish wasteland by the faeries of the Southern Ferren Arcfest forest whose sound and music deal instant anguish and death to most humanoids, the Mysions long for escape. When the evil Montrasades wizards form an alliance with the Mysions they promise them the freedom to leave their accursed land by means of a magical gemstone. This gem will allow them to control an entire race of timid and peaceful beings known as Peelees (I pictured them as gnome like creatures). The Mysions intend to use the Peelees, who are immune to the faeries music to march South through the Ferren Arcfest forest and conquer all of lower Fairasia. When the power of this gemstone is unleashed it turns every Peelee throughout Fairasia vicious and bloodthirsty, turning against all other races. As the Mysion Empire gathers the strength of their Peelee army all other races of Fairasia must unite in an attempt to stop the oncoming invasion. Here are my thoughts on Dwight A.G. Berry's Fairasia;

Pros (I struggled with these)

+ Had a map (albeit a very poor one), a list of Dramatis Personae and a list of all countries and races.

+ A few interesting ideas and creatures.

+ Easy read.

Cons

- Extremely amateurish and simplistic writing style. Often, to the point of being embarrassing, it read similar to a children's storybook.

- Terrible editing. Book was filled with non-stop grammar and spelling errors. Words were used incorrectly, for example; parish instead of perish, intimate instead of intimidate etc. Quite humorous when reading but shameful on the author/editor's part.

- Double, sometimes triple use of the same words or phrases within one paragraph. Difficult to read and made me wince.

- Plenty of plot holes.

- Exclamations galore! Author constantly put an exclamation point at the end of everything, even when it wasn't needed! Phrases such as; "Right! Or so he thought! Until now! They were wrong! Not Yet!" were terribly overused and overstated. It made most conversations confusing to read as the characters spoke with too much emphasis for the situation at hand.

- Anytime a fireball type spell was cast the action was spelled out in giant capital letters such as "KEERRRBBLAAAASSSSTT!!" It was like reading a Michael Bay movie script!

- Population numbers often sounded overly exaggerated or too precise. 42 million Mysions, 3 trillion faeries etc. Seemed very out of character for a fantasy novel.

- <Spoiler> The Peelees used of a saltstone tube to cross the Bottomless Sea was one of the stupidest ideas I've ever read <Spoiler>.

- A few scenes in the end of the book borrowed a bit too liberally from Return of the Jedi. The author states that he was a Star Wars fan and clearly it showed.

- Map looks like it was created on a Commodore 64 and printed out on a dot matrix printer. Every nation or area had its own font, many of which were completely illegible.

- The intimate/sex scenes between the humanoid animals were just plain uncomfortable.

Okay, let me start off by saying that I applaud any author, especially those who are able to self-publish or publish independently. It takes a drive, determination and love for ones own work that many will not understand. That being said, this book was simply abysmal. The ideas were generic, the editing was horrible and the author's overall grasp of the English language was embarrassing. Honestly, I'm almost ashamed to admit that I read it in its entirety. Now, I don't consider myself a harsh reviewer by any means but I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. I feel the potential for a decent story is there but it was quite simply, awful in nearly every aspect. Consider yourself forewarned.

If you go for adventure and lots of action, then this is the right book for you to read. Once I started reading Fairasia, it excites me more from reading on. The author was able to give life to its character impressively. You will be amazed how the author will keep you in fervor from one chapter to another. To you Mr. Dwight A.G. Berry, thank you for this brilliant book. I honestly enjoyed reading Fairasia just like as you enjoyed telling it. My honor for sharing with me your talent, and looking forward on reading more of your books to come.
