I confess that I actually read a sequel to this book, Yorien’s Hand, before reading this one (which is book one in the series), so that was interesting. XD That meant it read more like a prequel for me, and I already knew how a lot of it would turn out. But this in no way reduced my enjoyment of the story—not at all! And I was impressed and pleased that there were a couple of things that were still surprise twists! :D
There may have been a few times (especially nearer the beginning of the book) when the early-days-of-this-author might have shown, or when there were plot holes or typos and what-have-you, or when the classic fantasy things which some might consider cliche or something popped up, but I elected to ignore those points in favor of simply enjoying the book as what it is: an extremely enjoyable fantasy novel, with a great adventure, an intriguing world, and a cast of lovable characters. :) So good! ^_^
Speaking of characters—I loved them! So many great ones. Brant, the warrior, who’s my favorite—he’s just epic. ^_^ Kiernan Kane, the amusing minstrel (but with more to him than he seems), who actually shares top-spot for favorite. ;) They are both so awesome!! <3 Then Princess Kamarie is a good heroine, Oraeyn the squire is a FABULOUS hero, and other characters like young Yole, who was great, and various people they meet along the way such as the daughters of the Wizard Scelwhyn. I really liked Dylanna, for instance. :D And oodles of great side-characters too, who are sometimes a little hard to keep straight (might be my fault for reading the whole series out of order... *cough*), but still fabulous. And dragons, of course. :D It’s a well-populated fantasy world, and I loved the characters. ^_^
I loved this fantasy world, as well! It was just so neat to wander through it with these friends of mine, and I’m very attached to it. :) I liked the dragons and other myth-folk, and the forests and mountains and bay and castle and cliffs, and all the different fascinating characters and happenings.
There’s a tragic scenario in the first few chapters where a man’s young family was killed, so that might be a little dark/rough emotionally, and of course there’s some action/battles throughout, but otherwise it was delightful and family-friendly, and I can imagine it being a fun book to read aloud, or for readers of all ages. :) There’s something for everyone in it. :D
The book had me laughing hysterically a few times, like when Leila and Kiernan Kane were up to their antics (especially when he came knocking. XD) and when Oraeyn talked with the tree sprite person (I absolutely loved that bit. XD) and surely several times when Kiernan was doing his silly minstrel things. :D
In a sense, I ended up liking Second Son more than this one, just for its originality and Brant-ness and writing quality, but this one is definitely more fun overall, and I especially loved Brant’s mysterious self in this and the companions on their quest together, and just the classic feel of it, so... I can’t decided which of the three book out so far in the series is my favorite. I just love them all! ^_^ *hugs King’s Warrior and my favorite characters*
Overall, I just loved this book and this series and can’t wait to finish reading it! ^_^ Definitely recommend for fantasy lovers! <3
The cast of characters they meet in their attempt to help thwart the invasion will tug at your heart and find you cheering for even the youngest as the group travels the mountains, forests, and shorelines of the land. The journey carries them through enormous challenges and enemies, intent on stopping their progression at every turn.
The dark and dangerous Brant joins the group as he struggles with his devasting losses. What secrets does he carry within?
For those who love fantasy, this story will delight and entertain you for hours. In the end, you will find yourself wanting more, and the author does not disappoint as the series continues.
There were so many characters in the book that grabbed my heart and wouldn't let go. I am at a loss to give you any information because my perceptions all contain unforgivable spoilers. The book is well-written and well-edited.
The story started off a little slow for me. It took me almost a hundred pages to start getting invested in the characters. Once I got past the slow start, the book really started to take off for me. I really liked the world that the author (and her husband) built.
I don't want to talk about the plot because I am very against spoilers. I feel like the plot preview should be left to the author. Like I said it took me a while to get invested in the main characters, but after the first quarter of the book I was excited to find out where their stories were going to end up.
One small negative for me is that I would have liked for the magic system to have been explained. While there weren't any big cases of deus ex machina, I just like to know about magic systems. Maybe I will get this in the next book.
Overall I really enjoyed this book, and I will definitely read the next book when it comes out. I would recommend this book to all fans of fantasy.
