In the far away land of Vrandelin, Brandegan tries to warn villagers of Vararel of danger, the do not believe him and they are attacked by giants. Journeying to the capital city of Darfandor, Brandegan, Allon and Merch are met with danger and adventure with every turn they make. I was kept on the edge of my seat with every page turn. If you love an action packed fantasy read, Strife of the Mighty is for you and you will not regret reading it!
Review by Raychel
My favorite character is Merch. His strength is born of love for his friends, which I admire. Allon is another favorite, mostly because of his appreciation & love for his wife.
PS. I purchased two copies as gifts and Amazon let me download the Kindle version for free because of that. Pretty sweet perk! Thanks, Amazon. =) (I don't know if 2 copies is the minimum for this deal).
I got dragged into the story and I love how the writing is done with the book, the way it is written mixed with songs and poems in a very good style. The style reminds me a lot of Lord of the Rings but still it is so much more and different. I love this writing style and how it kidnapped me and turned off the world around me.
The characters is well developed and I felt with them, I loved with them, I went into war with them and so much more with them. It felt like I was part of them and not just an outside viewer, This is something I enjoyed and made the book strong.
I must say the book has a few faults and this take down the review one star but I also know that fantasy series is built up differently and this is a very strong first book and I hope and think the series will go on and be epic and when it happens this book may get better because all question I have may be answered, This book is good for people who love fantasy and also people who likes fantasy BUT dont want to have to much information that make the book "heavy".Some fantasy books and series is so much information that it makes people hate them, this is more a book with a story that is easy to follow and it is nothing bad with that, it can be good and as I said I really enjoyed the book and love it and I cant wait for the rest of the series.
I love the pairing of two regular guys with the mysterious traveler. It’s always fun for me to follow the perspective of the unlikely hero, or heroes in this case. Allon and Merch were great, and Brandegan is the epitome of the timeless wizard or epic warrior, reminding me strongly of favorite characters from other fantasies I adore. Then again, I kept picturing them as hobbits tagging along after a ranger, though I think that was from more of a vibe than any particular feature.
The pacing of this story was great, fast when it needed to be fast, and slower when it needed to be slower. I thought the fights were pretty well choreographed and exciting. Danger seems to fade out, letting the adventurers get a little comfortable, and then there comes some kind of beast or other enemy. But what I liked most about these impromptu battles was how they all actually move the plot along. They all do in some way. Most in a big way.
Playing counterpart to the fights and chases, and like many of the more traditional fantasies, this one features fanciful detours into lore, poetry and song. I read most of them, but I must admit I skipped through one of the songs. It was nice that these little offshoots were in italics, easy to identify.Read more ›
