The story is about two brothers, Adam and Avery, starting on a great adventure fulfilling a long forgotten prophecy and the friends and foes they meet along the way. The chapters are sometimes from Adams perspective, or Averys, or the other main characters of the story and this made me feel connected to all the characters in the book. This method of telling the story accomplished character development for all the main characters, which I feel adds to the depth of the story and my interest in it.
I would highly recommend "A Tale of Two Brothers (Tales of Terrezial)" and cannot wait for book two in the series. Chad R. Mitchell is an author to watch and I will anxiously be watching for anything and everything that he publishes!
Finally,I must confess, being a book lover I purchased not only the Kindle version so I could have it faster but then also got a print copy so I could have one of the first ones published for future value!
A Tale of Two Brothers (Tales of Terrezial)
First, let me get the biggest "con" out of the way before I tell you why I ended up really liking this book. This book contains quite a few grammatical and spelling errors. When I read, my mind "hears" the sentences the way that they're written, and if it's not quite grammatically correct, I spend time mentally fixing it before I am able to move on. As you can imagine, this can definitely affect my enjoyment of a book. The first chapter or so of this book were pretty difficult for me to get through until I was drawn into the story enough to ignore errors.
However, the grammatical errors and typos are something that could be easily fixed with a bit more editing, perhaps in later editions. What is really important here is the story being told, and that is where I feel that this book really earns its stars. As I said before, I read a lot of books, and fantasy is one of my favorite genres. If you read enough fantasy books, you'll see that most are rehashing the same themes, ideas, and creatures; it's fairly rare to get a fantasy book that actually has new ideas. Though it hits the key "fantasy" notes that a fantasy reader wants to read, "A Tale of Two Brothers" has new ideas, which I thought was really exciting. I found the characters realistic, and particularly enjoyed the relationship of the brothers, which, having siblings of my own, really rang true to me. The lands seen in the book were interesting (I particularly loved the sand-sea), the creatures of the book were cool and creative, and the villains felt appropriately scary. My one sort-of complaint about the story itself is that I was really intrigued by this world and just wished it delved a little bit deeper. This is only the first book though, so I'm excited to read the next one!
From the rainskates to the Salmarion, I loved the creativity of the creatures in this story. That's not to say that I didn't enjoy Adam and Avery, or Carleia and Jace. But the desert world, the enchanted ship, and the beasts roaming about showcase Mitchell's storytelling ability.
This book is a promising beginning to what I gather is to be a series. I cannot wait to see what Adam and Avery battle next!
The fantasy of the book was not way out there, it was believable, just like other fantasy books of today.
It was such a fun book to read and really looking forward to see what happens to everyone.
Is volume 2 done yet?
