Official Apex Reviews Rating: ****

Regardless of whatever difficulties we may face, we all have the power to

shape our own fates. No matter how insurmountable our situations may seem, we

are equipped with all the necessary mental, physical, and spiritual tools we need

to overcome the obstacles that block our paths on the road of life. The only

problem? Whether or not we have the strength of faith to empower us to endure.

Such is the central premise of Throwing Dice On A Chessboard, the new

collection of short stories by author Christos Tsiailis. Throughout the pages of his

collection, Tsiailis introduces the reader to seven different characters, each facing

his/her own unique challenges. Far from superhuman icons, Tsiailis’ protagonists

are average, everyday figures to which readers are sure to relate, each with the

power to transform him/herself for the better – or worse. Just as we all are every

day, the characters in Throwing Dice On A Chessboard are faced with the everchanging

vicissitudes of life, and the ultimate success or failure of their efforts rests

on their individual abilities to heed the cosmic ebb and flow that perpetually

sways all of our actions. As such, Tsiailis’ insightful tome is drawn straight from the

pages of everyday life, particularly when it comes to the significance of the

ongoing battles we wage against the demons within us all. An enlightening read.
