Corr Syl the Warrior was my first novel. Writing it was far more difficult for me than the academic work I had done. I became much more sensitive to opinions and reviews than I had been for nonfiction work. I don’t have the stamina to attempt a career as a novelist, but learning a little about writing fiction and experiencing the emotional highs and lows was memorable. Here’s a selection of Corr Syl’s best awards and reviews.
Kirkus Star awarded to Corr Syl the Warrior. “A beautifully written novel that will captivate sci-fi fans of all ages.” —Kirkus reviews. –June, 2013.
Corr Syl First Reviews
“It is full of imagination, creative and clever storytelling, and more pulse pounding adventure than you could ever imagine.” Reader’s Digest.
“It is an outstanding book. It’s one of those books you get excited over; that have you turning to the next page and reading more, even if it’s two in the morning.” Amazon Review by MaryAnn.
“Unique and highly original. It drew me in and was difficult to put down.” Goodreads review by BozBozo.
“I found it refreshing, extremely unique with funny, laugh-out-loud moments, too. It’s targeted at YA, but anybody who enjoys hard fantasy will like this book.” Louise Wise at http://louisewise.com.
“This is undeniably a commendable story, one that sci-fi and fantasy fans will definitely love and talk about for a very long time.” -Readers’ Favorite review by Lit Amri.
“There is really nothing more you can ask of a story than is found here in Corr Syl the Warrior. The pace is brisk and keeps you engaged, the characters are so believable that Lactella gives me the creeps long after I’ve finished, and I’ll be glad to find what Corr and Rhya are up against in the promised sequel. ” Amazon review by Paula H.
“Three Words: Action, adventure, thrilling. Age Recommendation: Whenever, it’s perfect for those looking for a thrill, no matter if your 9 or 99.” Bianca Blossom, Cherrybooksomtree.wordpress.com.
“…a most unusual and interestingly told tale that elicits empathy for the characters as well as the conditions it describes.” Amazon review by John H. Manhold.
“The truly hardcore, sci-fi fan will be delighted and entertained by the pace and deep thought involved in this novel. A must for the serious sci-fi reader.” –Readers’ Favorite review by Bill Howard.
“Part two was where the book really captured my interest with a very interesting and creative choice of villain. I was hooked at this point and the story started to fall into place for me. I started to notice a hint of humour in places and I found myself not wanting to put the book down.” Amazon review by Chettsgeni.
“It has cool action scenes and a few interesting side plots to go along with it. I really like how the writer makes an effort to explain the science and the way the Tsaeb work as a society in a way that makes logical sense. I really enjoyed this book.” Claireamber.blogspot.com.
“Engaging and entertaining, it has all the literary ingredients of a successful novel. Indeed, this is more than just a story about a young warrior’s adventure but is also a reminder of how humans are abusing the environment. This is a concern that has been expressed in very many ways but this one is certainly one of the most imaginative. –Readers’ Favorite by Marie Beltran.
“For a first novel, I have to say this book is as well written as any I’ve read, and I read a lot. I liked it.” Unpublished Review sent to author by Truman Burgess.
“An original story, great concept, I want more! Rogers has developed an alternative Earth, where we are the invasive species! An original approach to force the reader to evaluate how interconnected we are with everything alive on this planet. Excellent presentation of the politics of conflict and a thorough understanding how even amongst like species there can be political agendas. The book should be titled ‘Corr Syl the Negotiator and Strategist, Scientist, and Warrior’. I read it in one sitting – I like that, when a book grabs hold of me, makes me see things from another perspective, makes me think – and then makes me want more when I put it down.” Amazon review by Kristine Uhlman.
“Corr Syl the Warrior by Garry Rogers surprised me. From the book cover and the title I thought I was in for a sci-fi romp through the galaxy. Although that would have been fun I was much more entertained and brought to my senses with a touching story of Corr, a rabbit with super intelligence and his friend Rhya. I felt the communal sense of the animal kingdom from the up close observations of several other animal characters as Corr is introduced. In Garry’s book, what stands out are the feelings his characters evoke through their thoughtful and sapient actions.” Janice Shanks, Librarian.
“If you are tired of rehashed content and want something truly fresh and original, I don’t think you can go wrong with this book.” Amazon review by Lanka Roo.
