Book Review: Nothing More than Zero

Last December, I reviewed the most heart-wrenching story, The Princess Knight by C.H. Smith (read it here). Not long after, he published a companion book that I have recently finished and want to tell you about.


First, though, C.H. Smith has The Princess Knight and Nothing More than Zero on sale for $0.99!! Today happens to be the last day to grab these beautiful books on sale as C.H. Smith celebrates it's one year of publication for TPK and a new, gorgeous cover! Just take a look!


Click this link to grab TPK today, and read on to learn about the companion novel and first of its series, Nothing More than Zero.


 

About Nothing More Than Zero


A YA fantasy adventure full of magic, danger, and discovery.


The portals connecting the kingdoms of the world are all but forgotten. The ancient line of Dragon Kings are passed beyond myth. But a boy and his dragon on a quest to find the boy’s missing father revive both.


Encountering powerful enemies, unnatural storms, and ruthless bounty hunters is not exactly how he hoped his search would go. Every move Jaxson makes causes more problems. He will have to rely on the friends he just met, his wits, and most of all his dragon Zero, if he hopes to survive long enough to find his father.


Dangers await them on their quest, but there is no turning back. Jaxson needs to find his father, and Zero needs to find answers about his past. Both are unsure what they will discover, but at least they will find it together.


Add Nothing More Than Zero to your Goodreads lists, read for free with Kindle Unlimited, or purchase it on Amazon.


 

My Review


Nothing More than Zero is a fun, easy fantasy read full of adventure that's perfect for someone who enjoys epic fantasy without an epic number of pages.


I read this book aloud to my 6, 10, and 12 year old boys. They enjoyed the quick chapters and the interesting characters. The twist at the end had them jumping up and down. They loved this book and we are all waiting excitedly for the next in the series.


As an adult, I also enjoyed the book for all those reason. This is a short adventure novel, and with that in mind there are a few places of narration that, in a longer book, would have been action scenes instead. I found myself feeling like I missed out a little with those scenes, wishing for a richer picture of the world. It didn't take away from the excitement, though, and after a startling twist at the end, I can't wait to see how Jaxson and Zero do with their future challenges.
