Bernie and the Wizards (The Universe Builders) by Steve Lebel (Book Review #324)

Bernie and the Wizards is an epic fantasy novel. This story is written about Bernie. He is a God who fixes universes. He cares about humanity, and Photox is in trouble. While the life of Photox is at stake, Bernie has to stop a monster wizard from causing all the suffering.

The Universe Builders – is a selection of fantasy books that also work well as a series. I believe the stories are also available to be read as a stand-alone book, but I have not read them all. This book, specifically, stood out for me as I enjoyed the core emotions Bernie would express. Being a God, it was refreshing to see that he was almost humanized.

The other thing that worked really well was the world setting. I think nothing beats a fantasy story that emphasizes on this development. The characters were very appealing, and the plot was described with a picturesque descriptiveness that stood out throughout the work.

The one thing that I was not very into was the cover for this book. I have seen the cover used for other books written by the same author, and believe they were chosen better.

I recommend this book to fantasy readers.

  1. Thank you for your kind words, Jeyran. I appreciate it very much. You’ve captured the essence of my main character and his struggles over the ethics of his world. It’s very much a just-because-you-can-doesn’t-make-it-right kind of thing. The world-building is an interesting challenge because I want the science to be accurate. Bernie may have the power to create, but he also needs science to make it work.

    I agree with you about the book cover and have been working on a new one. As soon as the make-overs are done in the new style, I will republish the covers. If you are curious, this is that we’ve come up with: http://theuniversebuilders.com/wp-content/uploads/Bernie.jpg

    Again, my sincere thanks for your time and your review.
