Book Description

An epic tale on the smallest scale!

On the northern shores of the island colony of Glenisle lies the Turish port city of Tamendad, where business as usual includes keeping a watchful eye on the island’s native inhabitants to the south. When an enemy emerges from the darkness to threaten the city, an unlikely group of heroes must band together: a young nobleman, a penniless wanderer, an enigmatic ambassador from another land, a lord of the indigenous Dammaugh people, a squat blacksmith, a jewelry merchant, the Captain of the Guard, even the city’s own Governor. Together they must save something more precious than the world: their home.

The first book from author S. Matthew McNally, The Reclaiming is an action packed tale of adventure, philosophy, political intrigue, romance, friendship, betrayal, and brotherhood. Book One in the multi-volume Kalatheptoris Cycle, it is a self-contained introduction to many of the characters that will populate the entire series.

Begin the journey, and see if Tamendad will stand, or fall to The Reclaiming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth It!! August 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story is so damn good that I would spend a third of my life dedicated to such a tale. While munching on cheap food, drowning on expensive beverages, and inhaling even higher priced smokes. The amazing flow of the authors writing style is what I imagine Terry Goodkind, Orson Scott Card, and Jim Butcher's three way climax love child would produce. The most unlikely of characters must form bonds to hopefully overcome an adventure that found them. It keeps me on my toes and only slowed down when it had to. If you're looking for a great story and great author, you must read this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Fantasy August 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book published by the author. Mr. McNally wrote well-developed characters without overemphasizing one character over the other. He also found the right balance of descriptions concerning setting and action scenes.

I was able to visualize the setting and action without being overwhelmed by too many details. That is a common mistake with even best selling authors. I got to know the characters in the book by their actions, thoughts, or what other characters said or thought about them.

The book flowed smoothly without any of the dreaded lulls in the action. I am an avid reader and have no problem abandoning a book if I become bored with it. I was never bored.

I have read many Kindle books with spelling and grammar errors because the author did not take the time to revise and edit. This book does not contain those errors. I also enjoyed studying the well-detailed map.

I highly recommend The Reclaiming and plan to purchase other books in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read September 16, 2013
By AMR
Format:Paperback
I was drawn into this book the moment I started reading it. The author's descriptive writing puts you right into the story and you feel yourself transported into his world. The character development gives the reader a chance to get to know everyone that is part of this amazing story, you really care about what happens to all of them. The story never drags and the action sequences left me at the edge of my seat, especially the climactic ending. I highly recommend this series to fans of Fantasy, but it can satisfy all who decide to take this adventurous journey, it will not disappoint. I look forward to buying all the books in this series so my adventures can continue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent December 29, 2013
Format:Paperback
The upfront time spent getting to know Glenisle and the uniquely individual characters paid off handsomely. My investment in Tamendad, as well as the characters and the relationships among them, made the progression from one plot point to the next incredibly engaging. There was plenty of action to keep the pace up and enough twists to keep me hooked. I wanted to race through The Reclaiming to see the full journey and yet read slowly to relish every page as the story unfolded. That is the sign of a very good book. I will keep thinking about each character, each story, each open ending, until I can get my hands on the next book in the series.
