Like the first book, I absolutely enjoyed reading this one also! And, there's plenty of `meat' here again for fans to sink their teeth into. Like I said in my other review, this author is truly prolific and offers great value for money for those of us who enjoy a `muscular' read.
This is a well crafted action-packed fantasy tale. This captivating and stimulating novel had me engaged from the beginning. The story flows from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows extraordinary ability when it comes to storytelling.
This would be another highly recommended read!
Kings, Queens, Heroes, & Fools by MR Mathias was a book that I greatly enjoyed reading. I have been reading the Wardstone Trilogy in order from book one to book three and I would recommend that all readers begin with book one and then go in chronological order in order to understand the plot, characters, and settings of the series. The entire world that the author created in this book was amazing and I loved how I got to continue to explore it and its inhabitants in this book. Overall, I really enjoyed reading it and I look forward to book three!
The Dragon Queen has invaded and then fled. the Kingdom. The High King, with his magical sword and friends are trying to save the world and reclaim the Kingdom. Is she really evil? You should read the first book first, so you are nor confused. I did not do that. But I will be reading it now and then rereading this now.
This series is heavy reading Which means it is full to the brim with characters and details. At times there were so many characters and details I was overwhelmed. It took a while for the story to get going, but once it did, I became curious to discover where it was going. This story was very well thought out and should have been a direct hit, but the overwhelming details overshadowed the story at times. There was plenty of action, especially at the end of the book.
At times I found the adventures to be a bit confusing and super difficult to follow. I also felt that the ending was a bit confusing. I will read the first book and then this one again to better understand the plot.
The familiar characters Mik, Hyden Hawk, and Gerard mature and develop. In addition, a whole host of new and diverse characters are introduced. The characters regroup after a tremendous shift in power and then reach out to create alliances and recover from the devastation created by Pael and Shaella. I liked experiencing Mik and Hyden as celebrated heroes in the beginning of the book- their simple boyhood lives of the past gone forever as they become powerful men. Shaella continues to be a formidable adversary.
I felt that one could read this book without reading the first book because the author offers some back-story for events and characters. I do, however, highly recommend reading the books in order. Mathias does a terrific job of enriching and expanding on his Wardstone Trilogy fantasy adventure with fresh and unpredictable schemes. There are many stories within the story.
The battle scenes, brawls, mysteries, and adventures kept me turning page after page. Yet it was the close relationships between the main characters that makes this book transcend beyond adventure. The characters face constant danger, yet they play practical jokes on each other during rest and down times. The lightness gives wonderful contrast to the fact that at any moment, they could and do find themselves embroiled in life or death battles. I highly recommend reading Kings, Queens, Heroes, and Fools. I cannot wait to read Book 3.
I agree that Mathias is really talented as he maintained my suspense until the end. He leaves a mystery in end that makes you go for the third book. He gives the characters a vivid personality that makes you feel part of story.
With the help of the back story and it is easy to follow swiftly even without reading the first book. However it is more fun if you read them in their order. New characters are introduced in keep the story flowing.
I recommend this the K, Q, H & F to all adult fantasy novel lovers.
