Product Description

Product Description

The adventures of Luke Callindor and Nyx continue after their journey down the L’Dandrin River in Legends of Windemere: Prodigy of Rainbow Tower.

Reeling from his failures in their previous adventure, Luke leads his surviving friends to his hometown. With his mind frayed and his confidence fractured, Luke must face the family and fiancée he left behind. It is a brief homecoming when the vampire Kalam attacks the village, forcing Luke and Nyx to break into his lair for the key to resurrecting a fallen warrior. It is a quest that will force both young heroes to reach new heights of strength and power that they never knew they had.

Can Luke and Nyx escape the lair of Kalam? And, what role will the orphaned gypsy Sari play in their looming destiny?

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read 18 Jan 2014
By Pete
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From book one, if you stick with it its good but what might put you off is the talk of 'hero's'? I was put off with this when i first started reading thinking what a load of poo! But stuck with it and am i did because its a really great story line.

You get to be as one with the characters, Nyx a great sorceress Luke a 'hero' and Sari a belligerent gypsy with power, as well as all the other characters that revolve around the story. Really good read and i'm pleased that i stuck with it and looking forward to the next book.

Thank you Charles C Yallowitz for 3 good books and i hope more to follow!

5.0 out of 5 stars It just gets better.... 13 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Allure of the Gypsies is the third book in the Windemere series.

It is a huge undertaking to launch into fantasy as a writer, creating a world that the reader can find believable and walk in imagination. Inevitable comparisons are made to the great and good of the genre and a good idea can be hard to sustain through a whole series.

Yallowitz not only sustains but enhances his world, the plot and the characters. I have the distinct feeling that were we to look inside his imagination we would find him wandering the landscape he has created, interacting with his characters as readily as he does with the more sedate reality we generally walk.

There is a depth and confidence in this third book that has grown from the two preceding volumes that makes me wonder, `Where next?'
And more to the pint, `How long before I find out?'

There is a strongly humourous quirk in Mr Yallowitz' writing too, which I have a feeling reflects more of the writer himself than anything else. You get the sense you'd rather like to meet him over a beer.

So.... A fourth book? I hope so!

5.0 out of 5 stars Third Time Is The Charm. 7 Dec 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Technically sound, in some spots it is dialogue heavy, others it is action heavy. The new characters are highly developed and easy to accept into the Windemere universe. New bad guys/gals blend in well, new good guys/gals blend in just as well. Not an easy thing to do with as many characters and personalities that exist within Windemere. He pulled it off.

A curveball with some of the characters behaving in new and exciting ways. I was not anticipating this, and was kind of shocked at how different some of them seemed(once you see behind the curtain, if you will). Once you feel that you get inside a characters head only to have your assumptions tossed aside is awesome.

The relationships between the characters continue to make this a fantastic epic story, it is readily apparent a lot of thought and time went into the crafting of each one. Again I was able to stroll along Windemere and experience the wind and rain, see the dragons and the undead. I loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent continuation of a great series 30 Dec 2013
By Ionia Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Allure of the Gypsies is the much anticipated third installment in the Legends of Windemere fantasy series by author Charles E. Yallowitz.

I started in this series with the first book, "Beginning of a Hero." Since then, I have joyfully made my way through "Prodigy of Rainbow Tower" and now onto this book. So, what did I think of this latest novel? Pull up a seat and allow me to tell you.

First of all, I liked that this book did not immediately run rampant with the main hero of the story, Luke Callindor. To me, this showed that the other characters in this series are capable of holding down the story and making it interesting without needing the hero to always be leading the way. I feel this is crucial to any good fantasy series. The secondary characters must be able to hold their own during action scenes as well as during set up for the rest of the story. Charles Yallowitz has created some vibrant characters that are clearly able to add something all their own to the story with special abilities and unique personalities.

This book was a bit heavy in the dialogue arena for the first few chapters. I wasn't upset by this, as the reader needed to know what was happening, but I read these books for the intense action sequences and I am always excited and amazed by the way this author handles so many characters performing a multitude of actions and does it smoothly. As the book progressed, it hit a natural stride and the characters really came into their own.

One of the things that impressed me the most about this particular book, was that so much was revealed about the characters through the situations they faced. Rather than simply describing the pasts and the traits of the people and creatures in this story, the author allowed them to be who they are and use actions to tell the reader more about them. I love when there is an opportunity to experience the world and struggles a character faces rather than hear about it second-hand.

If I had to choose a favourite part of this book, it would be the relationship between Trinity and Nyx. It is strained, awkward, unusual, exciting and interesting all at the same time. Whereas there are plenty of novels with female characters that do not get along, this book explores the reasoning behind their feelings in a much different way.

The battle scenes in this novel are excellent, and they are written in an exciting way that kept me engaged with the story. I also appreciate that the author retained his sense of humour throughout this title and used it to brighten some darker passages. The fun that goes along with these stories is one of the main reasons I look forward to them.

Whilst I do love the action sequences, I am also a fan of the relationship building moments the characters have with one another both during battles and in between. There is always trouble just around the corner and these characters seem to have a magnetism that draws it to them. Watching them work to figure out an escape in each situation is always entertaining.

I thought the author did a good job of giving us a reason to want to return to Windemere again, and to keep looking forward to the next release. I was fascinated by the twists that Luke's story took in this novel and feel like he has become more than a simple character in a story, but rather a friend that I want to keep journeying alongside.

This was a great book and a nice addition to an already exuberant fantasy series. I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds for the career of this author as well as for his cast of lively characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great characters, creative action 28 Dec 2013
By Donald L. Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed Allure of the Gypsies. I've read the first two books of the series and continue to find the author creating great new characters and continuing to build my understanding of the existing characters.

Let's talk about action. The author creates interesting action sequences with believable use of fantasy elements. He is very creative. There are also good sections where the characters stretch out and we get to know them better.

This is the third book in a great series. If you like fantasy and enjoy good realistic character development, then this is a series for you.

The book is an excellent addition to the series. I'm happy with the continued growth of the series and the characters within this book. Very well paced, it's an unbelievable value for 2.99.
