*** LANGUAGE ***
There is no a single profanity in this first book in a series. If it were a film, the language is such that it would be rated G.
WHY I DECIDED TO READ THIS BOOK:
I’m a sucker for fantasy. Have been since my youth. I’m not especially picky with fantasy, so long as there is a good quest and good character development. My favorite Quest book was The Stand by Stephen King. Some Must Fall, though, is not oriented to the same adult crowd.
ESSENTIALS OF A NOVEL
ONE: I loved Istus, the hero, and found his struggle between good and evil quite interesting. My greatest question concerned this. No spoilers here, though, to learn more, read the book.
TWO: Although the story obviously continues, there is no cliffhanger ending.
THREE: The opening raised a lot of questions, but chapter two, in a flashback to a point nine months earlier, helps clarify those questions.
FOUR: Although I am giving this book a strong review, I would like to have seen more evoking of the five sense.

A – Bought on Amazon.
Q - Are there a lot of typos/misspellings, grammatical errors or other editing failures?
A – No.
Q - Is this a fast, easy read or is it more of a leisure read?
A – More of a leisure read.
To give a feel for the editing, and the style and flow of this work, I am posting a brief excerpt below.
‘…That night, celebration was entirely necessary, though not altogether fixed for the cheery whistles of flutes and upbeat plucks of lyres floated airily through the castle halls. Beneath the royal family’s dais, the noble people had demonstrated a wonton disregard for the usual protocol
protocol that had given way to joviality. Dresses’ hems glided buoyantly from side to side as animated men led their ladies over the marble floor.
Istus, however, was tranced. He was still trying, without success, to feel any amount of levity. A levity he had thought would emerge soon after the messenger’s news. He glanced at his father who had seemed successful on that score. The king had just raised a goblet of mead, laughing heartily as the queen pointed to something in the crowd of celebrating nobles. Istus turned to the full platters of food in front of him. His appetite had disappeared when he had begun planning for the land’s defense, and hadn’t yet returned.
His mother leaned over Epsilon and regarded him with a frown. “What on earth is wrong, Istus?” She nodded to the aggregation. “It’s all due to you.”
He smiled vaguely. “Why should anything be wrong?”
She dropped her gaze pointedly to his empty plate.
“A mother’s instinct is better than that, Istus.”
He sighed, and after another searching look, she leaned back, leaving him to himself. Istus silently…’

Five stars out of five.

Abigail, & Aya (Abigail’s granddaughter) cooked, served & cleaned up for the family.
Prince Istus turned in for the evening & was going to read Ry’eg Cal’fon that King Epsilon had given him.
Prince Istus, & Princess Taria, & Thoryus (soldier), headed for Byriad to take of some government business.
Princess Taria had been taken in by the mercenaries after she had witnessed some horrible killings of her family members.
She tried to find some friends in Tarin-Kire.
Thoryus had found her wondering around aimlessly.
Where were Cínnuinta (f), & Prince Istus headed to?
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written fantasy book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great fantasy movie, an animated cartoon, or better yet a mini TV series. To be continued. It was just OK for me so I will rate it at 4/5 stars.
