The Emerald Tablet (Legends of Amun Ra, #1) by Joshua Silverman
Published by Enchanted Forest Press
Leoros doesn't have many friends. He's moved around a lot due to his mother's work. But when his mother finds an emerald tablet that transports him to another world named Potara he finds out it's his destiny to be that world's savior. There he meets Atlantia- a slave girl he ends up befriending. With her help hopefully he can save the world he's come to love.
This book is a mix of sci-fi/fantasy/adventure with a touch of romance. It also has Ancient Egyptian and Greek Mythology thrown in. Being a fan of mythology I enjoyed that plot element. However, I found the story to be confusing at first with the switching back and forth from different planet and all the characters that were introduced. I also felt that the action lagged at first because the characters spent too much time thinking and not enough doing. There's also some minor inconsistencies but they're not too distracting. About halfway through the book though the action picked up and I found myself more engrossed in the story and rooting for Leoros and his allies. The second half of the book made up for the minor issues I had with the first half. Overall I found the book to be an entertaining read. I also really liked the cover art.
I received a complimentary copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
