Editorial Reviews

Review

From Goodreads! "At the halfway point, I probably wouldn't have wanted to visit Betrovia again; by the end, however, I fully intended to read the sequel, and still intend to. Dave won me over."

About the Author

Dave King, retired high school English teacher, married for nearly 30 years (to the same woman even!), and father of three children was born in Topeka KS and currently resides in Jefferson City MO. In 1990 he and his wife, along with their two very-young children, left KS and headed for Taichung, Taiwan. The lived there until 1995 when they moved to the Jefferson City area. Since being delivered into this world, he has lived in four states and on two continents. It is hoped that his experiences in all those places has positively influenced his writing.

Format: Paperback
Betrovia is the first of a three-part trilogy. This fantasy novel re-creates a time when a soldier's weapons included swords, and bows and arrows. War ravages Betrovia. It tells the story of Patrik, an innkeeper: trapper, hunter, and artist; and his two daughters, Tamara and Galena, and the war that shapes their existence. When Patrik finds a package of scrolls, he decides to trust Teophelus, a neophyte priest, to help him get them translated. Teophelus agrees to help him. Teophelus soon discovers a religious community eager to squelch the scrolls.

The characters move in unexpected directions, especially when Tamara, oldest daughter, beauty, uninterested in the men who pursue her, an old maid at eighteen, finds her love and a life completely changed.

The story moved well and with enough detail to put the reader in the picture. The characters rang true.

I received the book from the author but I have not met him. He did not pay me. This is an honest review.

Although these types of novels are not my typical favorite type of read, I have to admit that I was sucked into the story from the beginning. The author is able to create a land with great descriptive detail. The story goes in an unexpected direction which kept me going. The land of Betrovia is somewhere you'll want to go back to. Even if fantasy is not your cup of tea, you should give this one a try. I have a hunch you'll be drawn in to the story as I was. I'm now looking forward to the second part.

Format: Paperback
Betrovia is a trilogy about a fictional land called Betrovia. Names of places and people remind you of a place far away in another time striving to make their society work in the face of adversity and adversaries. I love to read fiction with adventure and Betrovia provides that through the pen of Dave King as he paints word pictures of the lives of common people and their relationships with royalty, middle class and servants of the day. The story keeps your interest as the characters' lives unfold, and of course I am looking forward to the second of this three part series.

If you love clean, imaginative fiction full of intrigue and detail, then the Land of Betrovia is just the get-a-way place you need to be. You can just loose yourself in the story, and become part of a land and adventure far away.

I truly enjoyed this book and am eagerly anticipating the next in the series. The characters are very rich and detailed. The depth and individuality shown in their personalities, as well as how they interact with each other, make this a very believable and entertaining book. The setting is realistic - you feel from the very start that you are with the characters, in their world. I give this a great rating because of the characters - although the storyline is very well done also.

The land of Betrovia comes alive through great descriptions that paint a clear picture of the characters and the setting. This book reminds me of David in the Bible for there is a young man who becomes king much in the same way David the shephard boy did. There is loss and there are victories. This was an enjoyable read, it had a slow start but a great ending.

Just finished this book and thought it was almost like reading a Robert Jordan novel. David King has put a lot of thought and time into both character and world building. He included a lot of the back-story throughout the novel. The characters were believeable and the plot was well thought out. If you are a fan of Jordan's then you will be a fan of Kings.

My 15-year-old son read the Kindle edition of this book as an assignment for home-school. Here are his words: "I really enjoyed this book. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because it started out slowly. But, once it picked up, I got into it, and now I plan to read the rest in the series."
