Everville: The First Pillar by Roy Huff

I received a copy from the author in exchange for an unbiased review.

Everville: The First Pillar is set in two worlds – the ‘Other In Between’ and the one we know. College freshman Owen Sage is beginning a normal life at university when he starts to experience strange dreams…and not only when asleep. With friends from this world and allies in EVERVILLE, Owen embarks on a race to save life as either side knows it.

Huff begins this first installment by throwing you right into Owen’s realization of other worlds. I appreciated the setup of both worlds without making the reader feel insulted by over explanation. A classic struggle between good and evil in different planes, EVERVILLE finds a place on the shelves of young adult fantasy.

As you uncover more about each character, you begin to feel part of the team. I appreciate books that can make you join the cause in this manner. I would like to see a bit more character development in the upcoming books, as this first installment mainly serves to set up the plot and setting.

Overall, this is a great start to a refreshing new series. I look forward to seeing how Huff picks things up in the second book. Happy reading!
