For me, freedom to live in the fantastic is what fantasy stories are all about. They are places where readers of all ages get to play. Stories of any fantasy genre should in some way mirror the fantastic aspirations of the reader. As the author, I see each story as an inner and outer journey for both character and page turner alike, one of an unbridled mind where the rules can change with each new discovery. Like a growing coral reef, every crevice, bend, shadow and brilliant twist of events can turn out to be something more surprising than the reader can have possibly imagined. This is where the Citadel 7 superverse thrives and where characters high and low shape its evolution. Yuan Jur

By Citadel 7 author Yuan Jur. Well, this post has been a coming for a while. Writing of imaginary worlds and spaces that inspire people in the real world to want to explore every corner of them is a daunting task. Particularly, if it's over many volumes, stories where people expect to walk alongside often strange but evocative races not of earth or sometimes even mortal worlds. Building races who are not just humans in alien drag and worlds that feel, smell and are real, are the difference between an unbelievable alternate existence adventure and, book down, pass the salt. As an author serious about my original series, my aim is to accomplish the former of those two outcomes. If you want to know what the Citadel 7 Superverse is about, and you are looking for an original high end Fantasy Science fiction series roller-coaster, the Citadel 7 Superverse it is about this; Carrying Superverse secrets is treacherous for many reasons. Ben Blochentackle's lone secret is cataclysmic for all existence, one those beyond the gods value above all else. It has followed him, hidden, through many mortal and ethereal lives. Time finally runs out for the Superverse as Ben's secret is uncovered. This chain of events forces Ben on a perilous journey, one that demands he sets things right to ensure that existence and those who created it are not lost forever. That is what is being realized with the first two volumes complete and the third and final of the foundation trilogy to be ready for scrutiny before mid 2013. There are six more full novels outlined and planned for after that, along with an evolving television screen play about book 1 Citadel 7 Earth's Secret. More to come Yuan Jur

If the worth of a book is to be judged by whether or not the reader can tear themselves away from it, then Citadel Seven by Yuan Jur rates right up there with the best page turners. The depth of the characters, the breadth of the settings, the pace of the story, the twists and turns that you don’t see coming, but when they arrive you “know” they could be no other way make this book something special. At the end you are left satisfied, yet wanting to know more. I can’t wait until the next book is finished! Susana Sabine MSS

I am normally interested in Fantasy Sci Fi and so I read this book because it fell in this category. The story plot is original with many twists and turns to keep you guessing and wanting you to keep reading. It brings in exciting new concepts, themes and characters. The main characters were easy to identify with for different reasons and the read was not particularly hard. I would recommend it to anyone to read.

Being an avid fantasy reader for many years, I was surprised to find an author in Yuan Jur that could spark new interest in the genre for me. His engaging style, originality and depth in his universe, and strongly detailed plot and characters are a breath of fresh air in a genre (fantasy fiction) that at times has seemed increasingly stale in recent years. Yuan Jur allows the reader to fully delve into his Citadel Seven universe (and beyond), providing insights into profound concepts through an entertaining cast of characters, choices and locations. His writing style is light and full of humor, which is very amiable to my tastes (a couple of reasonable comparisons in terms of style and wit are well-known authors Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman). I highly recommend Yuan Jur’s Citadel Seven novels to any fan of fantasy/sci-fi and to any reader with an eye outside of their singular world experience. Daniel Lee
