My take on this book was that it seemed to lack a narrative at the beginning and does not set out what the end goal is. This is important for me as a reader. Also, it seemed that the descriptions, while well done, were excessive, and nearly every action, scene, or character was described in depth. After a while, it becomes tiring.
If the author could trim this book to focus more on pacing and action, and less on the description, this might be a top-notch novel for me.
With a taste of both old and new, Harrison’s work reminds me of my days in Robin Hood’s Nottingham and also strikes me with a reminder of Kristen Britain’s ‘First Rider’ series. There is also an epic feel to The Firelord’s Crown, as if out of Tolkien’s mind, and yet I enjoyed The Firelord’s Crown more.
The entire work was stunning, but by far my favorite part was the final scene. Harrison does suspense extremely well.
After writing this review I’m immediately picking up my Kindle to begin the next in the series, Firelord’s Heir. Thank goodness I don’t have to wait.
Dee Harrison's novel, the first in what's meant to be a series, drops us into a dangerous world in the middle of a rebellion aimed at unseating the current rulers of a land caught in the grip of a harsh winter. It is chock full of battles, miraculous escapes from danger and there is a burgeoning love story woven nicely into its pages. It is a novel that examines in great detail the meaning of friendship and loyalty as its main characters attempt to escape from the clutches of those attempting to usurp the crown. Harrison also closely examines the trappings of power and their impact on a young prince who was never meant to rule because he was a second son. How he reacts to the fact that he may now have to rule a kingdom, assuming he lives through the rebellion, leads to some very intriguing passages in this book.
She doesn't stop there, however, for she also examines the root causes that would lead a man to betray his honor and what that means when it happens.
Harrison has a way of dragging the reader into the action that takes place in her book. Her main characters are appealing because they each have a purpose, whether it be for good or evil, and they are driven by it. Harrison makes us care about them, and that is the mark of a clever writer who is only going to get better as time goes by.
I found "The Firelord's Crown" a great read and think you might too.
Treachery claims Falath’s bed-ridden father. The extent becomes clear when one of Rollo’s kinsmen, Malglint, reveals himself as a vassal to the conquering lord who has killed the king. Falath leaves his home with two companions: his cousin and sworn protector Rollo, and a foreigner-come-lately magician named Airen.
Falath and his friends are ever harried in his homeland. The hateful Malglint has a knack for trailing the prince’s party, plus has a deadly matter to settle with Rollo. Allies and double-crossers swirl into the prince’s path. The useful Airen swears to help, but harbors unsaid motivations that may jeopardize the prince.
Desperation finally convinces Falath to choose exile in Airen’s foreign land while Rollo stays behind. His cousin will kindle an uprising among the prince’s subjects who dislike the usurper’s rule. Things do not go as planned when the canny Malglint corners the three fugitives in a desperate fight at the edge of a precipice. The outcome is heartbreaking.
The Firelord’s Crown is a most satisfying start to a hero’s journey. Falath, Rollo, and Airen are likable guys who cannot catch a break. Harrison uses a masterful hand to describe the brutal winter weather and adrenalin-soaked fights. Malglint is my favorite kind of villain—despicable.
Readers who love epic fantasy and haggard flights through an unforgiving countryside would enjoy The Firelord’s Crown. Beware of the political intrigue. The story will have you all but trusting enemies and casting doubtful glances at your friends.
