Since I got this as a free Kindle book, I really wasn't expecting much of anything. Just a mediocre fantasy book that would help me pass the time whenever I didn't have a physical book handy.
I was definitely surprised by how much I enjoyed this novel though. I found myself choosing to read this one over a physical book, which is not something I normally do. The plot was interesting, the villain was absolutely terrifying, and the hero/heroine were very likable and relateable. Mallette did an excellent job of painting his fantasy world so that the reader was transported to it, and did so in a way that wasn't too Lord of the Rings (e.g. endless pages describing how flat and boring the terrain is, with a couple of trees and mountains thrown in for good measure).
When Jake and Noxie finally find the "Last Tragedy" of Coeldoetta, what it asks them to do is pretty predictable, but heartbreaking nonetheless. Until Weston realizes he can save the day, preventing Jake and Noxie from losing the thing they love most. Hooray!
The way Mallette introduces the differing plot lines and then weaves them together is genius - at first, it seems like there are 4 different things going on. And then, all of a sudden, everybody meets and their separate quests become one. I mean, I know other authors have done that too, and probably done it better, but the way Mallette did it just stood out for me. Especially for this being his first published novel.Read more ›
I'm truly pleased with finding The Last Tragedy (hehe) and will continue reading from this author. Thanks for the great story...I do have one small complaint, (which may be addressed in future books) Yolo should have died in a horrible manner :oP
Please note that I picked this novel up as a freebie from Amazon. The price of the book has no bearing upon the review received, and in this case, I got much, much more than I paid for. Thanks for the read, Mr. Mallette.
DO NOT PASS UP any of Mr. Mallette's books !!
It's obvious that Mr. Mallette enjoys what he does. The only issue is some formatting issues on the Kindle for Android reader. I prefer white on black, I had to settle for tan. A small nit-pick to be sure.
Already bought the second, looking forward to digging in.
Well written, everything hung together. It's nice to encounter an author who develops a universe, then doesn't feel obligated to using the first several chapters explaining it. Here you go, right into the action, and you figure it out pretty quickly.
Likable heroes, despicable evil cult, clueless sidekick. A bit formulaic in places, but overall a good effort, especially for a first novel. I recommend to other fantasy fans.

Aside from the characters being a bit one-dimensional...which was not entirely a bad thing as it helped to present each as an archetype, I enjoyed this. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Amazon Customer
