Rev Caern, a twenty-year-old human, and his small crew of followers (human and otherwise) watch from the hills above. His goal is to get the Trollen Rose of Understanding (which determines who will be the next emporer). So, he intends to restore Sinnesomota and wastes no time trying to stop the procession below, putting the story and its readers into the action right away.
This magical tale includes such fantastical characters as vampyren, dragon, phoenix, demon, and of course, trollen. This, combined with the explanations of the magic and other world-building stuff, was a bit too many different unfamiliar things going on at once for me and I found myself losing my way a few times. But to be fair, I didn’t read the first book in the series, and am not much of a Science Fiction/Fantasy reader to begin with.
The writing was clear, as was the mission, and the emotions rang true. If you like High Fantasy, this one is a keeper.
I received a free digital copy of this book for an honest review.
In Trollen Rose, it is clear Johnson spent a long time building his world, but gave us just the amount of detail we needed to visualize it, without getting bogged down in unnecessary minutiae. I was able to dive right in and be part of his world without getting bored by the small stuff.
Fantasy and sci-fi writers might want to study his technique in how to get readers into their world.
The final act was a little too high fantasy for me, I'd prefer more action. I fan of fantasy would probably disagree, so I'm giving it points on that. If you are a fantasy fan you'll probably like it.
The problem I had with this book was the middle, the pacing slowed down and we spent a lot of time inside several characters heads. I've read books where this would put me to sleep, in this book it was just a minor annoyance as I wanted it to speed up. If the middle were as good as the beginning and end, it would get a five star.
Even with the pacing in the middle, I give it four stars. I good read with good writing. I can see how fantasy fans might want to follow Johnson's writing.

Being high fantasy, the novel is filled with all sorts of exotic beings (including dragons), various types of magic and battles big and small. The main story follows the rogue Rev, and his companions in a quest to free the slaves in a slaver city. Also, he is looking for the famed Trollen Rose, which will grant its keeper the title of Emperor.
I liked the book, the main plot appeals to me and I find the characters to be developed and interesting. There is romance, as Rev is rescued by a beautiful princess. I will certainly recommend this book to fans of high fantasy.

There are many things that I liked immensly about this book, but there were also other things that put me off. In a certain way, I thought trollen rose was polarising. What eventually caused me to give it a 4 was Ungor.
Johnson's writing is clear and to the point. at some points the story seemed to gallop, but even then you had enough to be able to visualize.
