As the story unfolds, we learn Kalla is more than just a high-powered mage and Aleister a mere bodyguard. They share a hidden history that reaches far back into the past. Together they face danger, solve riddles, gain friends, and overcome unseen powers in a fully realized fantasy world that tests their strengths.
Mother of Wolves is a blend of myths from various cultures and history, carefully weaving a new course of outcomes in this fantasy world. The author’s knowledge of lore and classic stories keeps this arcanepunk story fresh and expertly detailed. The world she creates is rich in fantasy and adventure with a touch of technology. I’m curious to see how these stories Kalla tells a group of children play out in the greater storyline.
While I did like that d’Merricksson did not create a contrived cliffhanger at the end of this first volume, I would have liked to see a little more of conclusive end to volume one. In all, an interesting look into an alternate past/future world full of exotic characters.
Very good. Sign me up for the next volume!
Kalla is a mage who takes on a new magister, Aleister, and the pair of them set out on a journey to track down the culprits of a wyvern attack on Kalla’s home. This is a strongly written epic fantasy with a steampunk twist. There is a journey through the world of De Sikkari meeting many different creatures with a host of powers.
d’Merricksson is a strong writer and storyweaver, if you trawl the reviews for this book you will see nothing but praise to back this up. So why couldn’t I connect and engage with this story? I don’t know. I just didn’t connect with the characters or the story. Nothing jumped off of the page and grabbed me in the way I hoped.
The cover gave me the impression of a paranormal romance and this is definitely not what you get with this book, I think that whilst the cover isn’t the be all and end all the cover on this book doesn’t speak to the books content or tone at all.
I can’t sit here and write this picking holes in a book that doesn’t have anything to pick holes in, this was in my opinion a personality clash, a book that wasn’t meant to be for me. I do think this is a book that many others will thoroughly enjoy and I look forward to seeing the reviews rolling in!
A huge thank you to J. Aislynn d’Merricksson for a review copy of this book with which to provide my honest review.
There are a number of twists and turns throughout the course of this serial novel, and they are handled well. The author walks that middle ground between telegraphing and failing to give reason or cause.
In a world filled with magic, fantastic creatures, and demons, we find at its core a tale of companionship. Finding oneself, though that word has many meanings in Mother of Wolves. A healer by nature, forced to take on forces that are bringing about great destruction. While at the same time gathering a small band connected deeply. Each of them has fought the odds. Been an outsider. Used or unfairly maligned. Yet, together, d'Merricksson has made them greater than the sum of their parts.
The book moves quickly, but handles a good pace throughout. Feeling neither rushed, nor like the reader has been strapped to a roller coaster.
Too soon, we come to the "end", where a thoughtful reminder that this is a serial novel, not a set of sequels. Right in the middle of the story, and time to move to the next part. I'm hooked. Part 2 will be up quickly.
This is the first work I've read from d'Merricksson, but it will be far from the last.
Main character Kalla is a multitalented bad-A. One of those heroines you love to love! I still got the feeling that she was real, not some over the top image of perfection. She gets into some serious danger, and she’s far from invincible. The story takes off at a good pace and proceeds in that direction, taking us readers along for a fun ride.
The fantasy world is well-developed with multiple factions and a load of different creatures. Among them were wyverns, manticores, vykr (some sort of unicornish creature but less majestic and more practical) as well as kitsune (awesome little magical foxes). A revelation about the kitsune had me grinning ear to ear, but I won’t spoil the fun. :)
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
