The book was very good and held my interest all the way through. I give it 2 stars because of his 1940's movie serial ending. Keep the reader interested enough to buy the next book in the series! I don't recall reading a trilogy with an ending that is so abrupt with so much action going on. I will probably continue with the series, but no more of Rathbone's books if this is his manner of ensuring you buy the next one in the series.

[May contain spoilers? Read with caution.]

I've really been enjoying this series, tearing through a new book each day or two since I discovered them. I just can't get enough. Regent, book four of the series, was no exception, and I found the story engrossing and engaging, and I couldn't wait to find out more: the secrets of Dragonhold (Runes? Secret rooms? Hidden artifacts?), the mysteries of dragon riding, the fate of the south lands, the intentions of Thorakis, the driving force behind the black dragons, the demons, or the assassins (Are they working together? Are they a new threat spurned by Istra's power, or an old enemy with new powers?) Unfortunately, the author opens all of these doors, as well as introducing many new characters and relationships, without adequately developing them or yielding any substantial information. There are some minor details, regarding certain characters, that I wish the author had taken more time to explain. At this point, I'm not sure if the author will go back to touch on them in the next installment, or if I'm just supposed to go off the information I've been given.

I didn't feel like any other book in the series was ended in such a jarring manner, they had complete stories that were satisfying, but each story left you wanting to know more about the world and the Herald's journey. Although Regent was equally interesting and well written, it really feels like they just chopped the ending off the book (or maybe a whole half of it!)and it really detracts from the book's enjoyability. Instead of leaving me thirsty for more, I am kind of frustrated.

I will definitely continue reading when book five comes out, but probably won't get six if five is ended in the same manner. Personally, I would suggest putting off on Regent, and waiting until five comes out, with the hopes that you will get a *complete* reading experience by getting both books together.

From the start of the book you are dropped into a high speed action sequence that scales from there, the evolution of the characters from the last book in the dawning of power trilogy is very well thought and developed. A new and more terrible enemy rises to reveal the truth behind the prophesy of a dark and terrible future for the Godfist a great and dangerous adventure that involves Dragons, magic and great battles for those blessed with Istra's power and those they must protect. I urge you to read this book and if my review stirred your interest in the story I invite you to read the Dawning of Power Trilogy by Brian Rathbone to gain an insight to the motivation that drives the characters in the book.

While I thoroughly enjoyed this book, feeling it was probably the best written of the 4 I have read to date, I absolutely hate the choice of the author to not give the reader closure at least in one or two areas. With as many side threads as he weaves there is plenty of incentive to want to read, and yes, even buy, the next book(s). So I implore you Mr. Rathbone, unless you are releasing the entire series at once, for the sake of your readers, give us at least some closure.

'Regent (The Balance of Power)' starts out with a slam dunk rush and never lets up. Never a dull moment in this Fantasy Thriller. Way over 5 stars this, the first book in what I see a great trilogy this deserves. Brian Rathbone writes at a pace unparalleled and keeps his story continually fascinating. I've become an instant fan of Author Brian Rathbone and so will you. I cannot wait to start reading 'The Dawning of Power' series now. Acquire this Book. You won't be disappointed.

I have read all the books in this series but after reading Regent I will probably pass on any future books by this author. I understand leaving the reader on a cliffhanger and uncertain of the outcome makes for a great way to build the anticipation for next book; however I do not feel that this is how the author ended Regent. It felt more like the author had to answer an urgent phone call and decided that they would just end the book there. I really have never experienced being yanked out of of story in this manner and it just left me confused & disappointed.

Fast paced at times difficult to follow. The detail with the saddle and harnesses made the concept of actually riding one of these mystical beast's almost seem possible. Ending way too abrupt. The other books in the balance of power series were gentler on the physic and ended on a much more substantial base. The other books I've read of Brian Rathbone have had all this. Please finish this tale it is a good one.
Wish all the series were easier to establish. That is not unique to this series though, It would give more time for reading and shopping rather than scouring the e-store looking for the next one.
