Fantasy books generally pique my interest; it is one genre that I can easily get into. Brett Vonsik’ Primeval Origins immediately made me curious.
Following Nikki, a graduate student, on an archeology dig, the story tells about a strange creature that is uncovered. Then, an accident segues the story into following Rogaan, an ancient boy who is getting ready to transition into adulthood. Little does he know that he is about to face a danger that threatens him, his friends, family, and his way of life.
Overall, I liked the book. It was very detailed, and that made it easy to imagine the characters and events in the story. There wasn’t a lot of jumping around, even with the transition from Nikki to Rogaan and back again, it flowed smoothly.
One thing I noticed is that there were spelling errors. These did not detract from the story, but I tend to catch them when I read books, and I just wanted to mention them. I doubt that I could get a book perfect if I tried to write one, so I’ll chalk that part up to my being nitpicky.
One big issue that I have with the book is the fair amount of cuss words in the opening section. I know that many people do not have a problem with that kind of language, but it bothers me. I think the book would have been much better without those words.
Again, I did like Primeval Origins, I think that Vonsik did a good job on it. I received a free copy from the author in exchange for this review.
