Ninth City Burning by J. Patrick Black – Review & Giveaway

Ninth City Burning by J. Patrick Black – Review & Giveaway

Ninth City Burning Banner

NINTH CITY BURNING
by J. Patrick Black
Release Date:September 6, 2016
Genre: Dystopian, Sci-Fi

 

Ninth City BurningAmazon / Barnes & Noble / Kobo / BAM / The Book Depository

Description:
We never saw them coming.

Entire cities disappeared in the blink of an eye, leaving nothing but dust and rubble. When an alien race came to make Earth theirs, they brought with them a weapon we had no way to fight, a universe-altering force known as thelemity. It seemed nothing could stop it—until we discovered we could wield the power too.

Five hundred years later, the Earth is locked in a grinding war of attrition. The talented few capable of bending thelemity to their will are trained in elite military academies, destined for the front lines. Those who refused to support the war have been exiled to the wilds of a ruined Earth.

But the enemy’s tactics are changing, and Earth’s defenders are about to discover this centuries-old war has only just begun. As a terrible new onslaught looms, heroes will rise from unlikely quarters, and fight back

 

Review:

Ninth City Burning by J. Patrick Black is an epic sci-fi fantasy story line. As well as his debut novel.  This book is over 500 pages, with a great story that has me amazed at how Black put together this complex detailed world. 

Ninth City Burning is set in a post- apocalyptic Earth, where they have been fighting an alien invasion that promises to destroy them.  It is a world filled with magic & mentors to teach the young children, who have those magical or scientific abilities to help defend their realms.   The premise:  500 years ago an alien race (Valentines) invaded Earth, bringing about mass destruction, using a magical weapon called thelemity.  Trying to rise up from disaster, the survivors of Earth discovered that some of their people can now use that magic. Bringing about training the Legion military, and teaching those with magic how to use theelernity to create a new world, and defend it. For 500 years, the Valentines have had many attacks on Earth, but on a smaller scale.  However, that is about to change, as the aliens are preparing a massive attack that will destroy everyone on Earth.  Will the youngsters who have been learning to handle their powers be able to help the veterans and save Earth?

This is a difficult review to write, as there are so many scientific details throughout the story.  As in any epic fantasy, the first novel tends to explain the world and confuse us along the way.  J. Patrick Black has created a wonderful concept in a fascinating world, not to mention some wonderful characters.   I will say that this did drag a bit, especially with all the descriptive details.   I also thought that Black though giving us some great characters, had so many, that it took me almost half the book to learn who was who.   I also thought it was great to see the different types of powers each of them inherited from thelernity magic.  But with that said, I really did enjoy the story line.

J.Patrick Black does a masterful job creating an amazing world, and did blow me away with all the details he wrote explaining everything about the world and the magic. Most of all, though I thought it was hard keeping up with the 7 main characters, they were all wonderful. I look forward to be able to revisit this world, and the characters I really liked; Rae, Kizabel, Vinneas, Naomi, Jax, Torro and Imway. I suggest if you enjoy Fantasy and Sci-Fi, you need to read Ninth City Burning.
