The Cardorian Complex, J. Taylor Baker

Jeremiah doesn’t know what to expect when he goes to Parliss County. He knows nothing about the Auralites, and the life Tom once had before he left this strange community to become a simple high school counselor. He only hopes to spend his summer reconnecting with his estranged friend Alicia, and that the people who live here will help him become the exciting, confident man he’s always wanted to be. But his adventure takes an unexpected turn when he learns about Alexandra Cardor, a mysterious woman who came to this place many years ago in search of a new identity, and who may be the reason why Tom left his old life behind. As he explores Alexandra’s dark past, Jeremiah begins to learn more about Tom, a hidden feud among the Auralites, and why his summer in Parliss County may not be so wonderful after all.

Fantasy reads that feature strong protagonists who discover incredible/shocking things and go on a journey is the definition of my perfect fantasy read. The Cardorian Complex is just this; an astonishing book that features protagonists the reader will love to join on their journey. J. Taylor Baker is a talented writer because his book managed to capture me from the very first page; his flawlessly executed story and well-imagined world combined with brilliant characterization make The Cardorian Complex a stellar read that should not be missed! The book market is awash with fantasy novels, and sadly, I find that most of them are a little lackluster and lack originality. The Cardorian Complex, however, is incredibly original and stands out for me amongst the fantasy genre, that is why I would have to recommend this excellent book for all those that love fantasy and entertaining stories!

The Cardorian Complex will introduce the reader to the protagonist of the novel, Jeremiah, who has recently gone to Parliss County, and when he does an adventure will start. While here he tries to become the best possible version of himself but soon his plans are interrupted when he learns about a woman called Alexandra Cardor. Soon Jeremiah will explore Alexandra’s past, and when he does, many shocking and unsettling truths are revealed. I do not want to spoil what happens next book lovers, but just know it is incredibly entertaining and should not be missed!

I found myself attracted and intrigued from the first page, the author’s beautiful descriptions made me fall madly in love with this book.

The plot of The Cardorian Complex is thrilling and incredibly clever. I am beyond impressed by J. Taylor Baker’s raw talent and how he managed to include so much depth into his novel flawlessly; no stone was left unturned, not even once. The pacing of his story too was immaculate, and so I applaud him for his incredible talent. The story is unlike anything I have read or heard of before. This is because the story is wonderfully written, and the plot flawlessly executed. It is relentless, and that is how adventure books should be! I adore these kinds of books where they push the boundaries; it is daring, bold and frankly brilliant

J. Taylor Baker can only be described as a talented wordsmith; I adored his writing which felt as if it was spiked with adrenaline, and I adored the multi-layers of this story. This fantasy read was packed full of great and informative depth which is rare for this genre in my opinion. Baker’s characters, especially the protagonists of the novel was simply electric. Their narratives jumped off the page and made me want to read until I could not anymore. They were such great protagonists that they compelled me to read and propelled the novel forward at the perfect pace.
