    Solid read. I enjoyed the plot and especially the setting of magic and technology. Both cultures received detailed attention from the author, I definitely like the Dark more but maybe that’s because we haven’t learned enough about the Light yet. There were times where things came together in borderline unbelievable ways such as when characters accept a story element instantaneously that would undermine their entire upbringing and daily experience. It just seemed like cheap writing. I’m probably Solid read. I enjoyed the plot and especially the setting of magic and technology.

It just seemed like cheap writing. I’m probably being too harsh so I must point out that the author has great prose and when all is said and done, the plot was still very interesting and well written aside from the above stated. I’ll definitely give book 2 a read.

    What an excellent fantasy adventure! Taking place on a far distant or possibly alternative Earth. Things aren’t what they seem friends are really enemies and villains are actual allies. At the center is Jonathan Wire, a boy with cybernetic implants that keep him alive. This great story watches Mr. Wire grow from a weak boy who was bullied into a true hero.

    I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. Dark & Day 1 is the first book in a fantasy epic written by Jacob Israel Grey. It has interesting characters, convincing dialogue and a unique plot. Unfortunately, the work is marred by erratic pacing and some unbelievable plot points. Nonetheless, it remains mostly engaging throughout its over 10 hour and 33 minute run time. And this is thanks in part to Wayne Farrell's solid narration.

It has interesting characters, convincing dialogue and a unique plot. Unfortunately, the work is marred by erratic pacing and some unbelievable plot points. Nonetheless, it remains mostly engaging throughout its over 10 hour and 33 minute run time. And this is thanks in part to Wayne Farrell's solid narration. Eleven-year-old Jonothon Wyre grew up among the dark, which is a society of humans and robots ruled by a mysterious queen. Jono has always been taught to despise the Day, a society of technologically primitive magicians. The Dark and Day have been at war throughout Jono's life, so he's never ventured to their side of the planet. However, when he finds a powerful artifact, he embarks on a dangerous quest to meet the Day. He must decide where his allegiances lie, who he can trust and where he fits in the world. Jono takes part in a compelling adventure that's housed in a fascinating universe. Israel builds a world that is full of intrigue, mystery and suspense. The plot stays fairly fresh and unpredictable throughout, and the characters believably fit into the narrative. It's disappointing that the pace slows down dramatically through the middle of the book. And there are some character interactions and plot changes that seem rather unpredictable and far-fetched. Despite this, Grey has crafted a strong foundation that lays the groundwork for a sequel. Wayne Farrell's narration of Dark & Day fits perfectly in the over-arching themes of the book. This is largely a story about war, courage and hardship. Farrell maintains a fairly somber tone throughout the story, and this contributes to the overall believably of the work. His voice takes on an older, fatherly nature, which lends to the idea that the narrator is a wise sage recounting a tale. He distinguishes between characters with a variety of inflections and accents, and they all add to the credibility of the narrative. He maintains a strong flow through the book, and he never detracts from the experience. Grey has written an intriguing epic set in a captivating universe. Many of the characters are young, but this coming-of-age story has appealing content for all demographics. Although some areas are slow and far-fetched, there is plenty of solid content here to be savored. Farrell brings it all together with smooth and believable narration. This tale is certainly worth checking out for fans of fantasy or fiction.

    An Awesome Fantasy for All Ages Dark and Day is marketed as a children’s book, but it’ll appeal to all ages. First off, the cover really hit me hard with Dark Crystal nostalgia, and the story evoked that same kind of other-worldly-80s-good-vs-evil-fantasy-adventure that I lived for as a kid (and as a grownup). Dark and Day follows Jono, a boy navigating some pretty hefty physical challenges in a world where technology and magic are diametrically opposed. My absolute favored sub genre is Science Fa An Awesome Fantasy for All Ages Dark and Day is marketed as a children’s book, but it’ll appeal to all ages.

My absolute favored sub genre is Science Fantasy (which Amazon sadly doesn’t offer as a category) so this was a treat for me. Engaging characters, worthy values, and real-world parallels makes this a wholesome, compelling book. Now My kids have to read it.

    It's interesting The cover is super cool! The idea of the book is really cool. Technology vs magic. That's a brilliant plot.The beginning really hooks the reader. There are a lot of terms the author uses in their world and doesn't explain what it is and it's so confusing. Like werepuppy? Example places. Some terms used between charcters. It took until chapter three for it to get interesting. The dialogue changed from.this modern tone to a urban kind of vocabulary. The setting was beginning to los It's interesting The cover is super cool! The idea of the book is really cool. Technology vs magic. That's a brilliant plot.The beginning really hooks the reader.

I highly recommend this author create a map for this book. It would really help visually. Pace super slow. All the characters feel one dimensional. I couldn't bond with anyone. Great writing style. The pictures are amazing. This is definitely a good book for kids
