About the Author
Jason McWhirter lives in University Place Washington with his wife, Jodi, two dogs, Meadow and Macalan, and their two cats. He has been teaching history for eighteen years and most of those years were filled with coaching wrestling, soccer, and directing drama plays for his school. When he is not working and hanging out with friends and family he enjoys working out, traveling, fly fishing, and of course, writing. His love for fantasy started young and many middle school evenings were spent reading late into the night following adventurers as they test their courage and strength against evil foes. He played dungeons and dragons, video games, anything where he could lose himself in the wonders of another world. This desire and craving to be immersed in worlds of magic and steel where anything is possible drove him to write his first fantasy book, The Cavalier, part one of The Cavalier series. He hopes to continue to teach and write and maybe one day create heroes and legends full time.

There is something tangible in each of the characters (even the dark ones) - something that is recognizable. Even with their great gifts and powers, they still have doubts and insecurities. As I read, I often found myself thinking of how certain traits remind me of someone I know. At other times, I try to imagine myself as one of the characters (a Blade Singer, usually).
I know I'm not adding any spoilers, because some other reviews I've seen have mentioned the killing off of characters. This is nothing new to fans of George RR Martin and other fantasy authors who are bold enough to bring that touch of reality to their story.
Another thing that really stands out is the detail in the battle scenes, and the description of characters, clothing, weapons, creatures, and landscapes. As a fantasy gamer, this is an appealing aspect to me. The author understands that this is part of what makes reading an experience and an adventure, rather than a function.
Finishing the second book in a great trilogy always leaves me excited for what is to come, and a bit sorrowful knowing that the next book will be the final part of the story.
Friendly warning: Once you tap, you can't stop reading.
Jonas will fight along with Kvothe and Vaelin Al Sorna, together the world is safe.
A long but worthy wait for this 2nd book.
Please release book 3 soon.
