The story was written beautifully. The content and the layout of the story was well put together. Even though the book had many science fiction scenes and possessed a dense fantasy plot; it was still easy to understand, even if this genre was not your typical read. I particularly enjoyed the character development. It was apparent that much care and research had gone through, to make the plot flawless and exceptional.
The story was based on King Author and Anglo-Saxon Mythology. I believe every author has a unique touch to writing stories like this and in this case, the world building, summary plot and exceptional style of writing, set this book to be different, of its kind.
It is vital that fantasy-writing authors spend a good amount of time providing a picturesque description of the world they set the readers into. I strongly believe that the author has understood this and because of that, The sword to unite is highly recommended by me.
This book is suitable for fantasy lovers and people that wish to dive into a rich fictitious literature.
During a village festival, an old friend, Edward returns after a long journey bearing among his possessions an ancient and obscure book. When the village comes under attack Edward is killed and only the strange book is taken. In that instant, Cedric finds his nightmares are made real and feet are set on a path of revenge and discovery.
The Sword to Unite follows the standard for Epic Fantasy. While one can easily see the influences of the Arthurian Legend, this is not simply an alternative or derivative vision. Instead, it might best be categorized as a basis or source for the legend. It has the feel of an earlier local tale of which parts would later influence or find their way into the legend of The Sword in the Stone.
The story itself is a simple one, interesting and entertaining but there are sections which are very difficult to read due to the occasional awkward sentence and paragraph structure. These serve to take the reader "out of the story" for a while. One such construct occurs in the first chapter. "Cedric's family, the house Thorne, on their tapestry a weaving of legend dating back to his great-grandfather, Edric the Marksman." Later you find "A servant of the king, adorned in the traditional garb of the north, a long tan cloak covering a purple tunic, the color of nobility." You find yourself re-reading the passage in order to make sense of it. Other than these 'partial sentences', which are sprinkled throughout the book, this is an enjoyable read and a laudable first effort. I look forward to subsequent works from this author.
I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book so I could give an honest review.
