Review

"I just had to say what a brilliant debut novel somehow with shades of Terry Pratchett. I can find no other mention of this author sadly but look further books from this writer. The humour is excellent another Pratchett trait. Please Mr/ms Anderson more of the same." - A. Roobottom

I'm finding myself more and more a fan of fantasy stories as I get older. I'm not really sure why. I guess they just allow me to live inside a world where anything's possible and you never know what sort of mythical creature will show up next. Unlike most thrillers or non-fiction, the characters and situations are only limited by the author's imagination.

With this story, the author, CS Anderson, sure seems to have no shortage of imagination. He takes a seemingly "been there / done that" topic and makes it new and original again. The idea of witches are sorcerers isn't a new concept. However, the spin that this novel puts on it makes for a completely exciting and original read. It's a completely different take on the concept.

This is a story of adventure, of finding one's self, and of revenge. For some reason, revenge stories always seem to really excite me. This one does well with the concept.

The only reason I give this book 4 stars instead of 5 is because there are a couple spots in the book where I lose track of which characters are who. When you're trying to tell an in-depth fantasy story with "fantasy-sounding" names, dialog can occasionally get confusing when you're trying to remember which character was named what and what each character's backstory entailed. However, the author did their best to try to keep it clear. I just found myself getting lost in the names at times. It's a small complaint that, by no means, detracts from the overall story and the amazing journey that the main character, Brendant, and the crew he meets along the way embark upon.

The book was an okay read. The story jumped around so much though, sometimes it was hard to keep track of which character you were following.
The setup was interesting, but the ending just took way too long. I think it made up almost half of the book.
I will not be continuing with the series, if there is another book.

The author has crafted an engaging world and engaging characters, but fails to fully develop either. The story is typical good vs. evil with a Wiccan twist. I thoroughly enjoyed the first third of the book as Brendant starts his quest. During the second third, the Goddess (Bright Lady) gathers her warriors, but they never connect at any meaningful level. They are comrades in arms, but never a band of brothers/sisters. The final third is a rather boring battle that goes on and on. How many beasties can you turn to gore before it becomes repetitive?
Speaking of repetitive, character traits and probable outcomes are repeated over and over. For example, each time the wicked sorcerer appears we are told that he will be invincible and unstoppable after he acquires the final artifact. We get it already. Characters also do info dumps disguised as dialog or reminiscing. For example, Brendant describes in conversation how he and the heroine consummated their romance. No drama, no buildup--it's already happened. Would have been a great start for the next book.
Despite these criticisms, the book is an easy and enjoyable read and a good debut effort. The author has a wonderful imagination and I look forward to "The Blood Stone."
FYI, the book contains graphic violence of the video-game variety and very discrete lesbian sex between the witches.

because I just could not get into this. I enjoy witch and other paranormal stories but this one was downright boring. There is certainly plenty of action but the atmosphere that allows readers to get involved in and want to continue reading just was not there. It jumped from scene to scene quickly and there was no in-depth treatment of characters or scenes. Maybe the next story in the series will be better -- or maybe it even got better later in the book -- but I don't know because after several chapters all I could think of was that there are much more interesting books waiting for me to read on my Kindle.

For a debut novel, I am extremely impressed. The plot was well developed and showed the writers skill. The characters wwere all well thought out and melded well to the plot line. The very beginning of the book was a little back and forth for my taste as the writer developed the various story lines that merged later on in the novel, but that is really my only criticism of this novel. The story itself revolves around a dark mage and battle between good and evil. It reminded me of the Lord of the Rings books in some ways. If you enjoy fantasy and loved the Lord of the Rings saga, then I think you would enjoy this book as well.

This book was good, but not amazing. The way it switched from one character to the next made it hard to read at times. There were also a few confusing happenings where I think the author was going for surprise but it just left you going "Huh?" I did like the story aside from those few things, but I have read better.

There is a sense throughout The Witch Stones: Gathering of the Covens that there is much that is hidden and will be slowly revealed. There is a good pace to keep the reader interested.
It is lovely to see the Goddess represented in literature with such beauty. The way She is depicted and the way the characters regard Her is touching.
I recommend this book if you like epic battles and magic.
I look forward to the next book!
