Risingshadow Review - one of the largest science fiction and fantasy book websites
"I'm happy to say that this novel is one of the best and most complex independently published fantasy novels I've ever had the pleasure of reading (it outshines many other fantasy novels in terms of complexity and worldbuilding). I have to admit that I'm a bit amazed and loss at words at how complex a story the author has managed to write, because this kind of complexity is seldom seen in modern fantasy novels.
One of the best things about Emperor of Mu is that it's a surprisingly fast-paced fantasy novel. The author takes his time to set things up, which is good, but he does it with style and doesn't let the story become muddled with meaningless events and keeps things in motion (although the pacing is delightfully swift, nothing feels rushed in this novel). The author manages to keep the various events intriguing and maintains the reader's interest in the story by gradually revealing details about the world and the characters."
"If you want to read an epic fantasy novel you can immerse yourself into and don't want it to end too soon, you should take a look at Jason Beveridge's Emperor of Mu. This novel is one of the best fantasy novels independently available for epic fantasy readers and should be read by those who love complex and intricate stories."

"New names, new ideas, and Jason manages to involve us to the point of initiating a hunger to turn the page and march into the story. Exceptional writing with interesting and always surprising developments makes this an impressive debut for an author of fine potential."

“This is a book to become immersed in, with its complicated and astute plot, and killer suspense. Throw in some dragons, romance, and bitter rivalries, and you have a well put together story.”

The world building and character building in this story was superb. I would compare this authors worldbuilding to the likes of Brandon Sanderson. I truly enjoyed this story, the intrigue, and the realism really drew me into the story and kept me turning pages. The plot was unique, and the story pace was even throughout which is important in such a long story. A long fantasy epic that is certainly worth your time and attention.

"There’s amazing character development, fast-paced action yet nothing feels rushed. The author takes his time to properly introduce us into his fantasy story. There’s a tremendous amount of work and love put into it, and it shows. It’s fun and entertaining, while at the same time feeling like an old acquaintance that you feel comfortable with."

"While it’s popular to compare world-building fantasy power struggles with the Song of Ice and Fire series, for me the actual feel of this book was more comparable to that of Dune, in especially the treatment of the characters and their more personal political motivations and machinations."
