The fun and unique group of characters are on a quest that seems simple at first, but that is not the case. Montague is a magician who is funny (in a sarcastic way), arrogant, and always has a few tricks up his sleeve. He feels that something is not right with the world, and he is determined to seek out the truth. Jeffrey “The Legend” Harm is a great character. He is strong, decent, and fully trusting of Montague. Loom is my favorite character. Who doesn’t love a feisty, humorous mute? Then there is Nolsun. He is pulled into the quest and all the chaos that comes with it. His main goal is to prove himself worthy of being a part of the group. There is also the Berserkers. They are an assembly of warriors who battle along with The Legend.
The book is well written, and interesting. I was asking questions all through the book trying to figure out the mysteries of the world. You are left with many questions at the end, but this did not take away from the story at all. There is not much we know about the world, but I am sure we will learn more in the books to come. I am looking forward to reading more!
Other characters join in with Montague and Harm on their adventures. Readers get to meet Loom, the sassy mute who is easier to understand than you would think, as well as Nolsun, the guy who just wants to prove himself in the end, and the Berserkers, a group of warriors who fight alongside Harm. Everyone travels together to villages that wish to be saved from attacks by neighboring villages. To be saved from attackers by Harm the Legend is a lengthy process, calling for a ritual the night before that turns Harm into an invincible warrior. Then the village has to feed him and his Berserkers, which puts them out of a lot of food. Finally, the next day Harm and his Berserkers save the village from any and all attackers. But is everything as it seems in this simple scenario? After each village they save, Harm never remembers what happened and must rely on Montague to tell the tale to him instead. With blind faith, Harm believes each word Montague tells him; after all the truth must be kept out of Harm’s way. But what is really going on underneath everything? Is everything really as it seems? What does Montague know that everyone else doesn’t?
Montague – One of my two favorite characters. Montague is a sarcastic (oh hey, that’s probably why I like him) and egotistical magician who people tend to fear. He has a lot of tricks up his sleeve, but he’s searching for the real truth of truths.
Jeffery “The Legend” Harm – He is highly trusting of Montague and, while I love his gentle giant ways, I get little angry with him for being so trusting. (Maybe I’m jealous of his blind faith?) He’s a pretty straightforward character—noble, good-willed, and strong.
Loom – My other favorite character. Loom is rather sassy (oh hey, that’s probably why) and the banter Loom has with Montague is probably my favorite part. (Yes, Loom is mute and they have banter, read the story to understand.) I look forward to more Loom in the next installment.
Nolsun – This poor character just gets thrown into these adventures and all he wants is to prove himself and carry his weight. He seeks for Montague’s approval constantly and things don’t really ever go how he expects. His role in the story is open, and I have many questions about him, so I’m looking forward to see what becomes of him.
My Thoughts on the Book
In Harm’s Way starts off as a light read—but it delves into the story quickly so you have to process quickly too—and seems like a simple adventure, but there is a lot of layered depth to it that makes you think about truths and what is real. Since it is only part one, it sets up a larger universe that readers are ready and waiting for as soon as they finish the book. I found myself eager and ready for the next installment as soon as I finished it since there were so many questions I had that were left unanswered.
This book really does drop you right into the middle of the action' and while I found this mildly frustrating' it was also intriguing. There was a bit of an info-dump at the end that explained things in more certain terms, and I do wish there'd been a better way to get that information across, but other than that, this book was a fun, if open-ended, read. I was given a copy of the book for free, in exchange for an honest review" I very much appreciate the gift, and the opportunity.
