"Windcatcher is what epic fantasy should be, filled with action and edge of your seat tension along with heartbreaking moments, moments of simple smiles as a dragon comes of age and assumes the role of warrior alongside his saviors. A.J. Norfield has told his tale in true to fantasy style, overlooking and describing each scene with clarity and just the right amount of detail. Feel the winds, the heat of battle, the arduous journey and watch as time goes by, hour by hour, mile by mile. Endure each battle, the sacrifices made and understand just how evil and small-minded people can be. Face it, humans are flawed and never is that more obvious than when good battles evil and evil remains slightly veiled." - Tometender (4.5/5 stars)
"The book's action-packed and fast-paced, set in a richly-developed world, culture and scenery. It's a tense adventure with some lovely relationships, all framed by a conflict that's becoming a lot bigger than any of the characters anticipate -- if you like classic action fantasy with dragons and adventure, you'll definitely like this" - SFFWorld
About the Author
Whilst he is a long time story creator, 'The Stone War Chronicles' series is A.J.'s first official undertaking into the world of publishing. His books show influences from nature, conservation and the traveling he does around the world, as well as every day things like family, sports and a simple moment enjoying the sun.
As a reader, A.J. Norfield enjoys books from the likes of Anne McCaffrey, Terry Goodkind and Naomi Novik--to name only a few of many--which also inspired him to create his own world of fantasy and the people (and dragons) within it.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The characters were well built, the pace was good, there wasn't a moment where I felt bored. I'm looking forward to read the next installment in this series. And damn the author for killing Gavin. That one hurt... Not that I wasn't surprised, someone was bound to die sooner or later besides those who already fell at the beginning, but still. Why Gavin???
All in all, I can't say a bad thing about this book, and believe me, I am pretty critical. My advice? Go and buy this book NOW!
So did it deliver? Yes. Yes, it did.
I found the story very interesting and the way Norfield described the characters, emotions and the world it took place in just right. No needlessly long descriptions, but extensive enough to create for an immersive read that I finished in just a few days. Norfields writing guided my fantasy, instead of directing it. I liked that bit of creative freedom.
Windcatcher was a superb read and I can recommend it to anyone. How it compares to the Pratchetts and Tolkiens of this world? I wouldn't know. I can read some of those while waiting on the second book by Norfield. Hopefully the wait won't be too long!
