2015 book: Corr Syl the Warrior

Corr Syl the Warrior by Garry Rogers
Rating: Hated (Hated-Disliked-Okay-Liked-Loved)

Book received free for review from the author.



I keep saying I'm not going to accept any more books free for review, then a description catches my eye and so I make an exception, and I'm almost always sorry I did. This book was no different.

The story was set on Earth, but a version of the world where every animal species is intelligent -- same level of intelligence as humans. The plot followed a young rabbit named Corr Syl.

I read about 20% of the book, yet the blurb told me more about the plot than the book itself did. I accepted it two weeks ago, before my vacation, so I couldn't even remember what animal it said Corr was. The story never described him or directly named it (which made fighting scenes fun -- having no idea what species the main character was, I couldn't picture anything at all).

I have no idea what the technology (or magic?) level this Earth had. The animals seemed to have high tech (magic?) things, like a bit of wire that formed handcuffs when placed on a raccoon's wrists.

Corr had psychic powers, so I assume there was magic in the world, but who knows.

The book was so badly edited, it was unreadable. Sample section:

---
Corr and the other raccoon concentrated their sen So that's how it is sory fields on the injury, but they could not get the star cells just wanted the fight to end, to respond. In moments, consciousness vanished. . There were voices,

outside the cave,

he...
---

From that section "Corr and the other raccoon" would make it seem he's a raccoon, but from the book blurb:

Corr Syl the Warrior is the story of a young rabbit descendant on an Earth where Humans are only one of the intelligent species.

Rabbit or raccoon? Who knows!

Sigh. Usually I'd put together a nicer (yet still honest) version of the review to submit, but I don't know if I can be bothered this time. I'm so sick of self-published books with this kind of quality.
