This is the backstory novel for a TV show that isn't happening (it looks like it's been converted into a graphic novel project, which is probably for the best, although I do mourn not getting Mira Furlan on my TV screen again). The prose is somewhere between adequate and embarrassing (it definitely needed a better editor), the characters and storyline are fine, but the worldbuilding is fantastic. I like that it's a portal fantasy where the main character is a native of the fantasy world; I like the range of cultural development in the fantasy world; I always like steampunk airships. The graphic novel will probably be worth checking out. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0985902221, Hardcover)

Visionary leader or despotic tyrant? Every day, the citizens of Lantern City ask themselves this of their young leader, Killian Grey, the fourth Grey ruler of the great walled city. But Killian is not the first member of the Grey family to elicit such a response. RISE tells the story of Isaac Foster Grey, the first leader of Lantern City. Isaac's battles through misfortunes and his ultimate quest to save his family intertwine with a burning vengeance against his father's killer and that man's plan for domination over every citizen in the land of Hetra. RISE is a journey through a fantastic world of myth, mystery, violence, and epic circumstance that challenges the definitions of good and evil. RISE tells of the legacy of the Grey family and begins the story of the creation of the enlightened and dark world of Lantern City.
