After OlympusAfter Olympus by Santiago Xaman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A groundbreaking novel that will have you on the edge of your seat...

After Olympus by Santiago Xaman is a wonderfully written and richly descriptive novel with brilliantly drawn characters and settings. The author weaves a well-crafted multi-layered story where the lines of reality and fantasy become blurred. Intriguing twists and turns also ensures that this book will captivate the reader from the first page to the last. From beginning to end, the author holds the reader’s interest.

The contrast between tone and content is a characteristic talent of only a few authors. Santiago Xaman pays as much attention to his sentences as he does to his plots, shifting or consolidating meaning with the use of a single word. His writing is impeccably honed, full of juxtapositions and qualifications that help to create an intriguing atmosphere that will leave you spellbound.

I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the novel in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much.

Highly recommended reading and a well-deserved five stars from me.
