With the begin of 2012 I decided to introduce a new format - I named it ediment - for books where I do not find the time to write a full review and for short stories.
And today I present you my first ediment.


EDIMENT

Into Glory Ride by Stephen Zimmer (Chronicles of Ave Series)
[ebook, where to buy]
I bought the copy I read for this post.

Let's have a short look at the background of the story. There is a world called AVE. This world is at the same time the setting for the Chronicles of Ave Collection and for the Fires in Eden Series
which consist so far of Crown of Vengeance (2009) [ISBN-13: 978-0983108627] - my review - and Dream of Legends (2010) [ISBN-13: 978-0983108627] - my review.
"I wanted a way for readers of my series to explore more of my worlds in a way that was also accessible to new readers." Stephen Zimmer
I'm a big fan of the Fires in Eden Series and I was totally curious for these new series. And as fan you have of course expectations ...

Into Glory Ride is a story about the Trogen race, well known to all readers of Fires in Eden Series. It is the story of the young warrior Marragesh, who has been a hero of his race and it is a story from the past of the Trogen history. Within the story Stephen Zimmer delivers a complete new point of view of the Trogen race for all Fires in Eden readers! It was unexpected for me and a valuable information too. Every reader of the Fires in Eden Series will understand what I mean as soon as you read the story. But there is more: The Sea Wolf Clan, the Elves and their relationship to the Trogen, ...
That sounds like a very "dry" historical read! Maybe if the story has been written by someone else. But this is a Stephen Zimmer story. That means you get interesting characters AND a lot of action (would it be a spoiler when I mention following two words AERIAL BATTLE) AND information AND landscape description AND emotions! Into Glory Ride reads like a Fires in Eden chapter but is a full stand-alone story. As I expected the story is executed on the high Fires in Eden level.

That sounds like I butter Stephen Zimmer up. On the contrary! Stephen Zimmer will confirm that beyond all friendship I deliver(ed) honest reviews of his books.

From my point of view Stephen Zimmer delivered everything he promised. Into Glory Ride is a great read but I can tell you, even the story is a hit, there is one (two more reviews to come), which I like a little bit more.

From me Into Glory Ride gets a double thumps up! A must read for every Fires in Eden reader and a great opportunity for every newcomer.

Normally I do not talk about book prices. But this time I make an exception:

You can buy this story for unbelievable 99 cents (USD) [ or 89 cents (EUR)]

Now it is up to you to decide if you buy the story (where to buy) or you take part in the giveaway.

ENJOY READING
