Description

Shelby Pardow never imagined killing someone. That's about to change.

While hiding from her troubled father in the local library, Shelby stares at a flashing instant message on her computer: YOU ARE NEEDED. She discovers a portal that opens and teleports her to the planet Azimuth, where soldiers await. Here, she is not a child but a warrior, Kin to one of the six Aulic Assembly members imprisoned by Malefic Cacoethes, the daunting leader of the Nightlanders.

Malefic, the evil spawn of the demon Biskara, razes towns and cities in his quest to rule Azimuth, and yearns to turn his forces against Earth. Yet every time Biskara gets close to achieving his malevolent goals, the Assembly uses the Silver Sphere, a sophisticated armillary device, to thwart him.

With the Assembly deposed, Biskara directing Malefic's conquests, and the Silver Sphere out of reach, Shelby is thrust into an unforgettable quest with her fellow Kin. She must learn to kill and lead an army into battle, or Azimuth—and Earth—will fall.

Another Obsession For A Fantasy Geek

A geek to the core, I surround myself with books in the Fantasy and Sci-Fi genres. A total Potter head, Hunger Games fanatic, Lord of the Rings Fan-girl… These types of collections I must always have in hard cover. Give me extras!!! Collectors editions, maps, illustrations, posters, calendars, replicas…. I know, I know. What is the point of all this hubbub? My point is simply this… The Silver Sphere has made the ranks with some of my all time favorite books!

While the story has some similarities to other greats like The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, it is a story all its own. Its fresh and exciting. The main characters are wonderful and diverse, and the book has a little bit of everything to go along with them. While a YA novel, Silver Sphere is the kind of story that will suck readers in across the board the way Harry Potter and Hunger Games have. A wonderfully written edge of your seat story, Dadich gives you action, adventure, romance, suspense, friendship, struggle, truth….

The Silver Sphere could and should be the next big classic to reach millions of readers looking for there next world to get lost in. I know that any person with a love for reading, particularly those who enjoy fantasy and sci-fi, will fall in love with this book the way I have.

REVIEW

In the novel “The Silver Sphere”, Michael Dadich transports the reader to a marvelous fantasy world. The inhabitants of the planet Azimuth seek the assistance of their ‘kin’ on Earth to defeat an ancient evil. The selected individuals are picked up from Earth and are taken away to an unknown world through a mobile portal. Unaware of what awaits them, these people are thrown together to form a team of warriors to fight for an alien planet.

Author Michael Dadich knows the way to a fantasy reader’s heart, and that is by successfully combining fantasy with reality, and he has done just that in “The Silver Sphere”. It is not a story of machines or computers, but of humans who had to deal with unexpected situations and crisis. The plot is fast-paced and quite riveting at times. The dramatic presentation arrests the attention of the reader throughout the story. “The Silver Sphere” is a must-read for any lover of taut, suspenseful fantasy.

The Silver Sphere

With all the fantasy books out there, it’s hard to find a good one that can stand up to the major series like Harry Potter or Hunger Games. Silver Sphere had enough excitement and fantasy that it could easily be powerful enough to be on the popular fantasy book list.

Six kids are magically transported to the planet Azimuth where they learn what it means to be a Kin to an Assembly member. Of course Malefic has evil plans that are always getting int he way. The goal is to save the world and stop all corruption.

The author does an amazing job at working the reader into the other world. While reading the book, I couldn’t be sure what was going to happen next. It was completely unpredictable, which is always hard to find in a book, especially fantasy stories.

Every character in this book had so much depth and illustration that I could clearly imagine what sort of person everyone was. Shelby of course was my favorite character, she is a little lost at moments but it never changes how strong of a character she is all throughout the book. I felt everything the characters felt from fear to joy and everything in-between.

The imagination that the author has for some of the characters is truly amazing, it didn’t resemble any other book to where it felt repetitive. Each character seemed original and unique to any other fantasy books I’ve read before, which is always so refreshing.

The only negative comment that I have towards this book is that the names of the creatures, and places were hard to read. I ended up making up my own words for the words that I wasn’t sure on the pronunciation. It definitely wasn’t too much of a big deal for me since it really did not change the way I felt about the story as a whole.

The climactic build up towards the end of the book, kept me wide eyed and on the edge of my seat. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. The ending made me cringe with disappointment that there weren’t any more pages to read. I hope this book might turn into a series, it just can’t stop here! Of course, I give this book 5/5.

The Silver Sphere Delivers

The Silver Sphere is a fast paced, well written action adventure. I found the characters and creatures to be extraordinary. The plot is unique and revolves around Shelby and her fellow “Kin”, six teenagers that unknowingly (at first) are called to battle against an ancient evil. I bought the kindle version after viewing the cool book trailer on the author’s page on Amazon.The cover and artwork inside are well done, and the glossary was also very helpful. I think fans of The Hunger Games as well as Star Wars would enjoy this. My kids are reading it next. They cant wait based on how much I liked it. A definite Christmas present this year.

Fun, Emotional Ride From Start To Finish

I’ve been reading a lot of Young Adult fantasy novels together with my niece who loves books like the Harry Potter and the Percy Jackson series. However after those, most of the ones we’ve read my eyes, and sometimes hers, glaze over due to the simplistic writing and contrived plots.

The Silver Sphere took me by surprise.

Not only was my niece thrilled with the main character Shelby and her call to adventure to another world, but I was fascinated by the excellent world building by the author and the emotional story lines and character depth. We literally read it in two nights as we simply couldn’t wait to see what happens next. I love how the author expertly mixes the fantasy and sci fi elements together. I felt like I was reading Star Wars and Harry Potter all rolled into one. I hope this becomes a series of books because we are sad we finished it so fast. =)

Action Packed

From the first page this action packed book will reel you in with twist and turns and a sense of adventure. Six kids are teleported to the planet Azimuth, where they instantly find out each is Kin to an Assembly member that has been imprisoned by the evil leader Malefic. While there the children must find a way to free the assembly and save the world. The book is extremely well written with detailed character development and intense plots. I could not put it down and can not wait to share it with others. The glossary is a plus if you need it. Fans of Rick Riordan, adult and kids a like, will love Dadich’s first book.

Couldn’t Put It Down!

I was looking to lose myself in a fantasy novel, and while searching Amazon, I came across this brand new book called The Silver Sphere. After reading the synopsis, it seemed interesting enough to give it a whirl. Let me tell you, I couldn’t put it down!!!

The Silver Sphere is an excellent, epic fantasy novel. The creatures are truly amazing, one of my favorites being Baku the dream eater. The last few chapters had me rifling through the pages as the build up to the ending was well paced. This reminded me of LOTR meets The Hunger Games. I highly recommend it for fans of the genre!

Great Adventure

The Silver Sphere enticed me from the first page. The story is enjoyable throughout and is chock full of action, suspense, and a little romance. Shelby is a strong heroine, and I also enjoyed the journey Zach embarks on to find her (and the rest of the Kin). The end has a nice resolution with a teaser for the sequel. I liked the map (in the glossary) and the artwork as well.

Scintillating Novel of Heroic Fantasy

An amazing blend of fantasy, action and a deep longing for lost youth. The writing was crisp, great characters and a truly epic journey throughout. A fully realized vision by the author. He kept me at rapt attention with a suspenseful plot that had me anxiously awaiting what new turns and twists he would unravel. Loved.

AMAZING!

One of the best things about “The Silver Sphere” is that it has a inspiring and thought-provoking quality that I feel appeals to children and adults equally (who enjoy the fantasy/science fiction genre). Various undertones of the story keep on dazzling and blossoming in the reader’s mind with every page they read. Chock full of magical creatures and colorful characters, the story progresses at an exciting gallop. Great story!

Awesome Fantasy Novel

This book is a breath of fresh air. It’s witty and original and is voiced with great care and creativity and this Shelby is such a strong character I want more of her. The Silver Sphere has a fantastic pace with some truly brilliant twists and turns that will leave you wanting for the next installment. Buy it. Read it. You won’t be disappointed. I cant wait for the sequel and will for sure recommend this to all my friends.

Must Read!!!!!!!

I was barely able to put this book down for a second after the first few pages got me completely hooked!I found the book to be well written with a fantastic pacing.
There is violence in there,but not so over the top as to be distracting.Even though the writing is geared for young adults,the main characters are teenagers(Shelby is awesome),there’s very little physical romance,and the actual violence would probably count as PG-13 nowadays.

The ending leads me to believe that this will be a series,this book has action,romance and is also sad.Great Read,I highly recommend!!!!
