More About the Author

Since my childhood, I've been passionate about fantasy. After reading many stories of epic struggle set in worlds of magic, I've decided to create a world of my own. The Seven Isles is the result. Thinblade is the first book in the series with more on the way.

Cursed Bones is the fifth installment in a longer series by David A. Wells. If you were thinking about picking this one up without reading the previous four first, let me stop you right here and now. Don't. While in some series you can enter into the series with any book and quickly be able to grasp what's happening, the same can't really be said for the Sovereign of the Seven Isles. That's not a knock against the series, just a fact. I would recommend starting at the beginning, and working through the five books in order.

Cursed Bones itself is, overall, a pretty decent read. It picks up immediately after the cliffhanger Blood of the Earth ended with. The story is becoming increasingly fragmented as the different major characters spread apart, following their own paths. Each character faces their own complications that must be overcome to guard against all of the ongoing threats to Alexander's rule and the peace of the Seven Isles. All of these stories are linked together through Alexander and his clairvoyant ability to send his consciousness across vast distances and watch over events. In essence it allows the protagonist to be present throughout the book, even when not physically there.

This is what causes the story to slip a bit though, and is my biggest issue with the book. Alexander's ability is used far too often as a crutch to solve problems, robbing the characters at the heart of these various struggles of figuring out a solution for themself. In every case Alexander has already seen everything, and has a course of action ready for them to follow. After four books, the characters are becoming familiar, and it would have been nice to see them evolve on their own. Having Alexander ready with a plan for them makes that difficult.

With each book, David A.

It has been a long time since I have read such a wonderful series. So full of characters found in D & D used in such
A great way. Please don't kill off to many main characters. A true gem and hope the books continue.

I have really enjoyed these books. I started with the free one for just something to read and have since bought the entire series.

This book is very tantalizing. I can't wait for book 7! If you are looking for fast action and adventure I highly recommend the Sovereign of the Seven Isles series!

No 5 continues the excellent characterisation of the previous books.

Story thread a bit challenging but grips nonetheless.

Will be sad to start 6 though cannot wait!

For a series of books that I was not sure I liked in book one, I have quickly become engrossed in the story. This book is no different, diving into Karth and the mysteries of the jungle. Excellent addition to the series and one I highly recommend if you've already read the previous books in the series. If you have not, please do not start here, read them in order to maximize the story.

Well thought out story and great character development. I find myself loving and hating certain characters. Can't wait till the next one.

As always. I loved the story. Be forewarned, however, you need to start the story from book 1 or the story will not make sense.

Ending with Isabel
"Phane stumbled backwards... still crawling backward..." Earlier In the book Alexander disappeared when he got within 10 ft. of Isabel. I assume Phane simply crawled beyond the 10 ft. mark before using his magic. I can't say why the author chose not to explain that, but it is a very... Read More
