“I loved this book,Shadowmancer, I thought it was...”

Written on: 29/01/2011

I loved this book,Shadowmancer, I thought it was fantastic. I am now reading the second, Shadowmancer, the curse of Salamander Street. I lovd the suspense and adventure and the fact it is all about friendship and loyallty. I think the three main characters are an example to all children, not to people by how they look and sound. It is a perfect book, breathtaking for all ages and dos not disapoint. You won't want to put it down until you have read it from cover to cover.It is so readable, I… Read Full Review

Shadowmancer has great Christian symbolism in it, has very good points and addressed them precisely. It had a lot of symbolism in the book, it had hordes of very detailed imagery… Read Full Review

“The way 'Shadowmancer' was written makes it very hard...”

Written on: 17/07/2008

The way 'Shadowmancer' was written makes it very hard for even the most skilled readers to read.

There was so much Christianity embedded in this story, I was thankful I was a Christian, otherwise I would have put the book down from page 100. There are so many biblical point of views in this book that it has the capability to offend many people.

This book ended just as you would have expected from the get-go. Don't read it… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/09/2004 by the thespian (3 reviews written)

G.P. Taylor, Shadowmancer - In my 40-odd years of reading thousands of books I have only ever not managed to finish reading two, one was the truly awful "the Greeks bring gifts" and the other is Shadowmancer. The story as far as I managed is pedestrian, obvious and overloaded with Christian symbolism, at times to a toe-curling degree, and the writing technique is just plain awful.

Written on: 18/08/2004 by Nabiee (1 review written)

I think Shadowmancer has a nice story based on the elements it combined, Religion, myths, and created things. I think it had power to enlighten most of us.
But too many bad points, I'm not so comfortable with the book, maybe because religion is involved… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/06/2004 by alchemilla88 (2 reviews written)

I found G.P. Taylor's Shadowmancer to be a boring and poorly written example of an attempt to merge Sunday-school-style Christian doctorine with popular fiction. It is so bad in some parts that I found myself literally rolling my eyes as I read. Characters are thin and events unfold much too quickly and predictably; there is no drama or suspense in this story. The plot is a highly unoriginal tale of clear-cut good vs. evil, and you know from the beginning how it has to end. The heroes are… Read Full Review

To achieve his ambition, Obadiah needs to obtain two Keruvim, an amulet that he already possesses and some other artifact of power that he… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/04/2004 by egoinos (1 review written)

I was a little disappointed by G.P. Taylor's Shadowmanceras I have found that the Christian subplot is far too explicit. It lacks grace and elegance. I also feel that the author rushes the story along, with a rather immature writing style (even for a children's book). That said it is unusual and pleasant to see a fantasy book for children which has a good mix of characters, and makes a nod to racism, while not concentrating on it too fully. Not too bad, but not a rival to Harry Potter or other… Read Full Review
