Raven Raves at Faith and Geekery

I’ll let Aaron at Faith and Geekery speak for himself:

… how good is it? Is it worth reading? Does it avoid such pitfalls as Derivative Plot, Wooden Stock Characters, and Deus Ex Machina Solutions that have claimed so many other authors of fantasy?

Absolutely.

Take everything you know (or think you know) about the genre (especially so-called “Christian fantasy”) and throw it out the window. Forget conventions, stereotypes, and Tolkien/Lewis ripoffs. The Auralia Thread is a genuinely original work of fiction — no easy task these days. With unpredictable situations, believable dialog, and characters with motivations we can relate to, Raven’s Ladder draws the reader in and keeps him or her guessing.
