All right, finished it and it's a pretty decent fantasy book. It's got a lot of bang for your buck but I just wish I knew it was part of a series. I'm not a patient reader, I like to get the whole series and read it all in one go. I'm not deducting points off but I'm just saying. If I had known I would have bought the book and shelved it to read AFTER the entire series was released.
Good read,it picks up pace and gains speed after a slow start and finishes with a bang. Good stuff.
Once I reached the end of the sample, I wasted no time in purchasing the whole novel. I can't remember the last time I received so much gratification for so little cost. This is way more than a full-length novel and it is only the first in the series. I pray that T. K. Anthony will soon have the next installment ready for publishing, as she left the reader in suspense over the fate of the hero and one's heart breaking for the heroine.
I truly struggle with categorizing this as a romance novel. The emotions are there and heartfelt, and their linking is central to the plot, but the relationship takes time to build. As far as sex goes, that did occur, but not until the last quarter of the book and it was all "off-camera" style of writing, unlike the majority of romance novels, when you usually have the sexual hook-up before the first half story and varying degrees of erotic descriptions of their activities. Not too mention that while hero and heroine achieved their Happily For Now relationship resolution, it is put in grave jeopardy by the story's climactic scene. Again, not the norm for a Romance genre book. So I would categorize "Forge" as a science fiction novel, space opera theme with a strong romantic element.
If you are a fan of Catherine Asaro's Ruby Dynasty/Skolia Saga, then I think "Forge" will appeal to you.
As a bonus, the editing was excellent, with no obvious typos, grammar or punctuation errors,
or word choice. I will say that the author put us right in the center of 3 cultures, only one of which is human-based and the reader is left to pick up some of the cultural jargon and concepts on their own, with deft, but spare, explanatory prose to shore up the reader's understanding. I find this much preferable over long passages of backstory and info dumps. A glossary of terms and concepts for the three cultures would be a great addition to the book.
TK Anthony's latest endeavor, "Forge (Thrall Web)" is one of the best romantic sci-fi books I've ever read. I felt myself slowly but surely drawn into a story of good and evil, much like the spiders's web draws in a helpless fly. It was a very enjoyable web experience. Am waiting for the next installment in the "Thrall" series.
I am quite impatiently awaiting the sequel. Hurry up already!
