Realm Wars is an exciting marriage of classic sci-fi and fantasy elements and reminds me a lot of the Halo books by Eric Nylund. The pace is often quick and action packed. Overall, it's a good read.
However, the book suffers from a few things that should have been picked up in edit, such as roving POVs, and telling instead of showing and vice versa, as well as a few issues with scene flow.
The story itself is quite gripping, leaving a lot of mystery that keeps you wanting more. Though the main character's god-like presence sometimes squashes conflict before it can properly drive the scenes home.
Overall I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys the sci-fi genre and I look forward to seeing this author grow in future instalments of the series
