I enjoyed the characters and their development, though the main character Athson, can get on your nerves. How can a character be that dense? But then I realized, I was that young once too. So, yeah, that is probably the way he should be.
The story follows Athson as he tries to figure out why he is seeing visions and why the Withlings (witchy-spirit-woman-ish folk) won’t leave him alone. Some force is working in his life, and he just doesn’t like it. Yeah, that’s about all you’ll get from me as a spoiler/breakdown of the story.
Well-written, though sometimes I felt the story was rushed, it kept me reading; wanting more. I liked the relationships in the story, and feel the author used just the right balance of showing/telling to make this a good read.
Highly recommend this to anyone that likes a good Fantasy Adventure book. I’ll be adding the next book to the top of my TBR list soon.
4 of 5 Stars
Generally, the story flows smoothly, though it seems to drag a bit from time-to-time, due in part perhaps to some lengthy descriptions. Nevertheless, the author’s description is excellent, and brings the setting and the characters to life.
The characters are believable and interesting. I would, however, have liked to know a bit more about the supporting characters, Gweld, the elf ranger, and the withling, Hastra. (What, exactly, is a withling, anyway?) Also, I would have enjoyed knowing more about the antagonists, Congren, the dark wizard and Magdronu, the elusive, and extremely powerful dragon. But, to be fair, perhaps the next book in this series will explore these fascinating characters more fully.
I enjoyed the interplay between Athson and Limbreth, as well as their burgeoning romance. I was pleased that Athson was able to respect, and even admire Limbreth’s strength and abilities, rather than being put off or intimidated by them.
I liked the reluctant hero plot and thought it well-done. However, I was quite ready for Athson to accept and embrace his destiny by book’s end.
I applaud the surprise ending. I did not see that coming at all, and it is certainly adds to my desire to read the next book in the series.
I do recommend this enchanting saga to readers of nearly all ages and look forward to the next book in Solomon’s Bow of Hart Saga.
The author kept enough of the story a mystery until the right time while maintaining an engrossing story full of description and heartfelt love and angst. One of the highlights for me was the way the story started off with Athson having some difficulty before gradually moving away from some of the elements. I would say more, but I don’t want to spoil it. Sorry.
The characters were well written and engaging to the point I felt for Athson and wanted him to tell off Hastra through most of the book. Lol. Even Athson’s growing relationship with Limbreth felt right and was a pleasant change from the usual “fall in love at first sight” that’s common in fantasy. Out of all of the characters, Corgren remains one of my favorites, but he was bumped down to second place by the giant Ralda. Ralda’s complexity added an element that was briefly touched on in a couple of scenes and I’m curious to see if his character branches off in his own book or series.
Overall, this has become one of my favorite fantasy books and I’m looking forward to the rest of the series.
