Bristling with new magic, powerful creatures and peoples of legend, and a decent plot - the tale turns from devestation and certain doom at the claws and teeth of the violent storms marauding the lands, to wonder, faith and ultimately hope that co-operation and determination will win the day against the oncoming chaos.
The main characters are unique and fresh, the supporting cast well rounded, and the landscape rich in the telling.
I was glad I persevered and would happily read a sequel, or consider anything else the Author produces.
The story follows Kamil and his guardian, Nijal as they are swept away from their quiet life when a dark threat falls upon the life. They soon find themselves on the run from this dark threat, meeting friends and foes while being swept up in a battle for the future of humanity.
Martin has obviously spent a lot of time building this world. Valice and Denshire are populated with unique types of people/creatures, and his descriptions truly bring the world alive for the reader. His action scenes are exciting and well written. The book as a whole is very well edited.
As one reviewer mentioned, the story is a bit slow to get started, but once it does, you do not want to put down the book.
Hollenguard is a great book and I look forward to S.Arthur Martin's future works.
Hollenguard is an enthralling, heroic story and S. Arthur Martin demonstrates the perfect amount of eloquence and charm to a world and characters that have been written to life. Subtle actions and descriptiveness while concise, perfectly portray volumes of history, character, and experience. I've never seen an example of an author who can say so much, with so few words.
This story reads as if from a seasoned author and I'm hopeful I see subsequent works.
The idyllic land of Valice has enjoyed a quiet existence for many centuries beneath the glow of the silver and gold rings that stretch across its sky. It is home to tall vistas and beautiful, green forests, and bordered by a great expanse of rolling mists called "the veil."
At the Inn at the Crossroads, Kamil helps to tend to the many varied patrons and wonders about the wide world that he has never seen. As autumn draws to a close, a boiling storm appears on the horizon and four strangers arrive with dark portents.
Kamil soon finds himself on a journey across the breadth of Valice and far beyond. But when he discovers that the world is being violently consumed behind him, his odyssey becomes a dangerous exodus to the ancient fortress where all of the roads in the land end:
The storied bastion of Hollenguard.
In a sea of maudlin, dark, and downright depressing fantasy novels that we've seen recently, S. Arthur Martin's Holleguard is a shining example of what Fantasy readers crave.
I picked up this book after reading the excerpt above because I was intrigued. As an avid reader of fantasy fiction I was cautious because this was an unknown author, and truly I was not expecting much. However, I had hit a wall with the current book I was reading, and wanted something new to sink my teeth into. I was pleasantly surprised.
S. Arthur Martin has created characters that I deeply care about. They are fleshed out, but not overly described. This leaves the reader to formulate their own ideas of what these characters look like, which for me is a delight. These characters have personalities all their own, and I grew attached to each one individually.Read more ›
