    4. I've just finished Malcolm R. Campbell's The Sun Singer and I really enjoyed it. It's the story of Robert Adams, a high school-aged boy, and his gift of precognitive dreams. Although he foresees the tragic death of his best friend's sister, he's unable to prevent it and so he shoves his ability aside, refusing to engage it. When his grandfather dies unexpectedly, Robert resurrects his gifts in order to complete a task left undone by his beloved grandfather. The story has parallel universes, port [...]


    5. A SHAMANIC HERO’S JOURNEYWith “The Sun Singer,” the author Malcolm Campbell exquisitely draws us into a hero’s journey unlike any before. When 15-year-old Robert Adams and his family leave on a long-awaited wilderness vacation, it is under the cloud of the death of his beloved Grandfather, Tom Elliott. The vacation had been planned, among other things, so Tom could introduce to Robert the “magical” world of the high mountains he has written about in his books. What Robert doesn’t r [...]

    9. I read about one half of THE SUN SINGER and then made the mistake of allowing an inquisitive teenager to read a few pages. The book was gone in a flash and not returned until finished. Compelling characters and challenging scenarios keep these pages turning. I had a couple of beloved grandfathers, I could relate to Robert Adams. I had to discover what he would do next. Author Malcolm R. Campbell weaves many fantastic one-two liners into this story. I have several favorites. An example: "Lovely w [...]


    10. "The Sun Singer" is a book that will transport you to other realms, realms that shadow ours. Campbell's story is not only about how one character must complete what his grand-father began, it is about how one must come to terms with loss and death too. Robert undertakes a journey not only to other realities, but to his genetic heritage, a heritage that he must fully accept in order to become free.I highly recommend this book to those who seek to understand their own magical natures. Campbell has [...]


    11. A most interesting and enjoyable read. The beginning was a bit slow for me during character development, however once the stage was set, the story picked up speed and I didn’t want to lay it down. This story, a journey into another time, is uniquely crafted and would be difficult to compare with other time travel novels. The Sun Singer reflects the creative genius of Malcolm Campbell. He makes this time travel believable. I give this rising star, a five star rating.


    12. I RECEIVED THIS BOOK IN A GIVEAWAY! It took me a little while to read, but not because it was bad. It was very good. The story was entertaining and kept me on my feet. The characters were tantalizing as well as compelling. And the events that took place both surprised and interested me. There was humor, fantasy, intrigue, and awesome relationships. As you read this book, you are catapulted into a different world that you never want to leave. And, it was well worth the read.


    13. The title of this book comes from a remarkable piece of sculpture on the Robert Allerton estate, now a University of Illinois conference center I've been to many times. Malcolm Campbell saw it as a child (or young man) while visiting his grandparents, who lived in the vicinity. I very much enjoyed the way he uses it as a "home base" kind of setting for this excellent novel.


    14. Campbell has created a new world, or universe, that young Robert must learn as he goes sent on a barely defined mission by his grandfather. “The Sun Singer” learns much about himself, his history while learning to navigate Phyrra.My copy came through First Reads.
