5.0 out of 5 stars A Majestic Adventure, 20 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Book of Deacon (The Book of Deacon series 1) (Kindle Edition)
At first I only downloaded this book because it was free. It was one of those hidden gems that have made me love my kindle all the more. This story is a majestic telling of the adventure/trial and story of one young girl. There is magic, forests, magical creatures and betrayal. Yes to be fair this story is not action packed. There are not many action scenes. Instead the author constructs an almost poetic telling of what happens. There is deep description within every page. You can feel the bitter cold, the fear, the wind in your hair. This story makes you dissolve within the setting and for that it caught my attention.
The characters all have their flaws, including the heroine and whilst sometimes the dialogue between the characters gets lengthy and almost tiresome it still helps to move the plot forward and allow you to see what the characters are about.
If you like Lord of The Rings or Harry Potter you will like this story and it is a true gem. I highly recommend this story and am now going to download the rest of the series.

Interesting review. Would you be willing to look at something else? "Shades of Smoke" by Alan Denham

Of course I would. I love reading and having no internet of any sort here in Japan I need something to pass my time. I'm glad you liked my review.

If you liked this you'll love "When Women Were Warriors" by Catherine M Wilson, also an epic trilogy, set in the bronze ages it tells how a young girl becomes a great warrior and leader, it has love, betrayal, danger, battles and adventure in a hostile land. It takes your emotions on a breathtaking rollercoaster ride.

If you like poetic language, well described characters/scenes, then take a look at Clive S Johnson's Dica series. Like you, I felt the strongest points of 'Deacon' were the vivid descriptions and the ease of reading. It made you forgive the author for a few rooky errors. All in all though, I did love the book.
The first book in the Dica series is 'Leiyatel's Embrace, give it a go. There are 5 in all and the series is complete.
